Happy New Year! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas season with your family and friends. Here at the Yurkanin house, it was a great holiday season. Everyone loved their gifts, spent a lot of quality family time together and lots of relaxing. Simply perfect if you ask me.
With the New Year, we know the next big holiday is Valentine's Day. So, the Sisters in Stamping decided we should start sharing some great Valentine's ideas with you. Never too early to get started on those Valentine's cards and projects. Well, unless you are like me and have all these grandiose ideas but wait until the last minute and have to scale way back due to serious time constraints.
This card uses many awesome new products found in the Occasions catalog and the Sale-a-bration catalog.. Don't forget, you can begin ordering from it on January 6th. The inks I used are the awesome new chalk inks. I also stamped it on the new chalk paper. You will love it. The chalk inks give a totally different look than the classic ink pads. It's a softer look.
The polka dotted paper is not colored. It's a white paper that has a glossy white pattern that is great for resist techniques. I used the new chalk inks and a stampin's sponge to "color" each piece a different color. The bow is made using the new bow punch. It's such a cute little bow that will be a great addition to so many projects. I can't wait to add it to some gift packages.
Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping blog for more great Valentine's ideas.
