Teal Love

Good Morning Peeps. Hope you are all having a great week so far. It is cold and snowy and icy here. But suppose to warm up on Thursday!

Today's card is made with
Jen Del Muro's sketch. I also used a challenge on splitcoast for the colors, real red, baja breeze, taken with teal and whisper white.

I used the SU set A Happy Heart again for this Valentine card, it is kinda non-traditional colors, even tho there is the red. I stamped the tic-tac-toe stamp in red on white cardstock and then again on a scrap piece of white and also in baja. I then cut out all the x's and o's and put them on dimensionals on the main image.

I wasn't to sure about this card but it is kinda growing on me. My DD loved it and as soon as she saw it claimed it for her own. I told here I needed to get a picture before she took it!

The bottom layer is made with white and baja and the edge is a Martha Stewart punch.
The red piece is run through the cuttlebug with the heart embossing folder. The base is baja, followed by a layer of teal. I stamped my sentiment directly on the with piece of the bottom layers but it smudged, so I had to make another sentiment with the oval punches to "fix" my little blunder. Well, what do you think?

That's all I have for you today, thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Stamping!

This colour combination is lovely and the noughts and crosses (tictactoe?) idea is great! I also really like that Martha Stewart punch, I have never seen it before!

It is very pretty and the blunder doesn't show. I have had to do the same sort of thing often.
