Just Us Girls #225 - Photo Inspiration Challenge and January Papertrey Blog Hop Challenge

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.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card, Lisa! I learn so much by following your blog! I've never used modeling paste, but love the effect with the stencil here. Also, the way you stacked the "love" and the "heart".....nicely done!

Is that love die from PTI? Such a great die and love how you used it - no pun intended LOL! Saw the stacked layers on Laurie Willison's blog so maybe that's where you saw it. Such a wonderful touch. Great take on the challenge :)
