Just loved both of these chairs with pillows. The striking color combos and patterns really inspired me. I used a combo of the two - black and white with the pop of red ribbon and, of course, a heart. Here's my card:
I used the Hero Arts Heart Background (from the Basic Grey True Love collection) and a white embossed black heart using a stamp from Untitled Hearts. The sentiment "love" is from a fun set called XO. This will go to a couple of married friends.
And speaking of Valentines, I heard from my friend Heather saying she received the ones I sent her. Here is the pair for Heather and her hubby:
These are 3x3 minis - the left one uses a fun Valentine set from Hero Arts called So Sweet. The cup for the card on the right was stamped from another great Hero Arts set called Need Caffeine. When I went to visit last May, Philip made me lattes from a mix - they being mostly tea drinkers. But Philip gamely tried one and I think he's probably still drinking up that mix!
Here's another pair of minis:
On left - a fun set from Lawn Fawn (it was an exclusive for the old Archiver's). On the right - a great Operation Write Home set called Dude from Hero Arts. These went to a friend in California and to one of Heather's sons, respectively. Heather's other son received the doggie mini I made for a previous Scramble; see it here.
O.K. - let me tell you all the wonky fun for the Scramble. First I pulled out my beautiful seam binder style ribbon from May Arts - it's hopelessly wrinkled (no surprise, if you know how I store it in a crumple heap). I get out the ironing board and iron, add water for steam and wait while it heats. Quickly iron my ribbon. Then when I was white embossing a sentiment (not the love - I tried a different one first), I realized I had mixed some clear ep with my white when I jarred it last night - ugh. So I dumped out as much as I thought I'd added to the jar but to be on the safe side, pulled out a new jar (don't ask where my handy plastic bin, with spoon included, went - it's around here somewhere...). Had a terrible time getting the wrapping off the second jar! My patterned paper was ruined and I didn't have any more of that pattern so had to pick a different paper. The rest of the creating and assembling went smoothly. I took my photo with a camera but couldn't get the camera to process the download. Back to take an iPhone photo and finally got it uploaded. Whew - by then I was exhausted. But I had a great time and thanks to Betty for hosting!
Hope you're having a crafty day too!!
