Hi everyone! It's getting closer to Valentine's Day, and Just Us Girls has a great photo inspiration challenge for you to help you get those Valentine cards done. Marisa chose this great photo to inspire you.
Here's a larger picture. Lots of different ways to be inspired by this photo, don't you think?
I was also inspired by the Papertrey Ink blog hop challenge photo here.
So after all that inspiration, this is what I came up with. I used a some pink cardstock, modeling paste, and the chevron pattern stencil from Simon Says Stamp for the background. The love word was die cut seven times: four times from white cardstock, twice from a dark pink, and once from pink glitter paper. I then stacked them together with the dark pink in the middle. I also stacked the heart in the same manner. The heart was added to the banner with the sentiment. The little hearts were punched with a Martha Stewart heart border punch.
Here is a side view of the die cuts. I saw this on someone's blog, but I can't remember whose blog. I had this idea in head ever since I saw it. I love that pink in the middle!
I used this week's CAS(E) this Sketch, and actually CASED Lynn Mangan's card. She's the guest there this week. I love her style!
You can see more inspiration from the JUGs team on these blogs.
