Cupcake Craft Challenge 129 - I {heart} you

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello to all you craft lovers out there! Well, did you get any mushy Valentine's cards? Any marriage proposals? Well whatever, have a Happy Valetine's Day!

Ok, today at Cupcake Craft Challenge it's my turn to choose our theme so to tie in with Valentine's Day I've chosen I {heart} you for this week's challenge, which basically means we want to see HEARTS on your crafty creations! I've made two DT cards for this challenge, I got carried away with the mushyness! My first card (above) is done using a lovely Heather Ellis digi image from the Pure Innocence collection, coloured with Promarkers. The paper is from Wild Rose Studio, and the cute sentiment stamp is from Taylored Expressions. I've added some heart embellishments to finish off!

Challenges I'm entering with my I {heart you} card:
Fab n Funky - Tempting Textures
Passion For Promarkers - Let There Be Love
Stamp Something - Something For Your Valentine

Now onto my second card (below)... as we're sponsored this week at Cupcake by Lori Designs I've made this card using this super cute Ella the Elephant digi, again coloured with Promarkers. The paper is K & Co, heart is from a Sizzix die and the sentiment reads 'Don't forget that I love you more than anything'... I thought it went well with the Elephant theme lol! I've also used some white netting (I'm liking this can you tell lol)... I think it looks sweet with the little charm?! There's a few hearts here again!

Challenges I'm entering with my 'Dont't Forget' card:
Stampin For The Weekend - St Valentine's Day
Creative Card Crew - For A Loved One
The Craft Pad - Hearts

This week you could win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend in the Lori Designs store, and don't forget the Icing on the Cupcake prize which this month is a fab £15 Gift Voucher from Crafts U Love! And not forgetting that you could be in our Top 5! Now the other Cupcakes have put their HEARTS (sorry couldn't resist) into making some super projects for you to feast your eyes on, please pop by and show them some love!

Well I hope you get to spend some quality time with the person you love today!

Love that pink elephant! And yes, the sentiment goes well with it! Beautiful cards, all of them.

Cheryl said...

Gorgeous cards! I love how you used the tulle on both.

Donna said...

Both of your cards are adorable Shelly...the little ribbon slider on the 1st card is so cute and I love hoy you have used the netting and little hearts. Your 2nd card is uber cute, I've not seen the Sizzix hearts unusual! We've had a fairly quiet Valentine's evening...its bit difficult being romantic with a 16 year old and a 10 year old loitering lol! I got my watermark from Whimsy Stamps...very cheap I thought and fast service's their link :
