Amusing Challenge – Valentines

Thank you so much for stopping by to check out this week’s Amusing Challenge!  🙂  With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we’d love to see what Valentines you are creating.  Throughout the month I have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc. I will have a Weekly Winner and at the end of the month, those 4-5 winners will go into a prize drawing for one lucky Grand Prize winner.  February’s Prize Winner will receive sn@p cardstock birthday sticker sheets.  This is perfect for project life type scrapbooking or cardmaking!

Carol had a wonderful idea of creating a cascade of hearts using the A Muse Studio heart trio die set.  She also used polka dot ribbon from amuse studio.  Love the layers of red and richness of this card.

Tricia (of 1PhatChic) showed us her playful side…I always love to include a little treat with my Valentines and this Tic Tac package is adorable!  Tricia used Mad for Plaid and My Punny Valentine in this yummy Shell and French Roast cardstock combination.  All supplies are from amuse studio.

I love the googly eyes!  Even the inside of her Valentine treat is finished off perfectly with this little band.  Sweet!!

Cyndi did some paper piecing with these little ladybugs from the A Muse Studio stamp set, My Punny Valentine.  It’s a colorful and fun idea – especially if you don’t feel like pulling out markers or pencils.  She also used Cherry Baker’s Cording and the 6×6 paper pack called Everything’s Rosy…which are also from A Muse Studio.

I went super CAS with my Valentine.  I used a few A Muse Studio stamp sets:  Say it With Style, Brushstrokes and All for Love.  I also used Blush ink, Blush Splash and Blush Baker’s Cording as well as Kraft and Vellum cardstock from A Muse Studio.  I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest and set about creating my own version with supplies from amuse studio and what I had on hand.
