With the new scoring tool from Stampin’ Up! making faux tile is even easier than before. Just score card stock in whatever pattern you want, then stamp the image on the debossed side, pressing just hard enough to get a good image, but without getting any of the image in the little debossed rows. This one I didn’t even color, just left it in outline form, stamped in Soft Suede. I also stamped French Script in Crumb Cake – double background looks much better than a plain image sometimes. To finish it: ribbon, sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes, a lace border made with a punch and crimped.

Sounds like something good to eat! That’s what you get when you combine Crumb Cake and Peach Parfait – a yummy card. I used Bordering on Romance from the mini and the new framelits for the Big Shot. The border is the  Tulip frame embossing folder, sponged with a little white craft ink. I watercolored the image on Whisper White. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (again – great set) stamped on the banner from the Petal cone die. Simple yet elegant.

Another request, this time for the more traditional hearts. The SU hearts framelits came along just in time for this project! I love those framelits! This petal cone die vase was made with Cherry Cobbler and Regal Rose card stock, stamps from P.S I Love You from the mini and a couple of retired stamp sets, the new Paper Doily sizzlit in Pink Pirouette, Hearts framelits and a couple of heart punches. I also used the new Adorning Accents embossing folders to make the embossed hearts across the base of the vase. A little bit of Pretty in Pink ribbon finished it. I love the way the paper doily sets off the hearts. Happy Valentine’s Day!

I used the petal cone die, various punches and the watercolor technique, including white craft ink on the eagles’ heads. Yes, you can watercolor with craft ink. Her friend collects eagles and I was pleased to provide a unique Valentine’s Day gift for him.
