Urban Love

Yesterday did end up being a snow day of sorts, if you can count 1/2″ of ice as snow. It was an early dismissal day so I wasn’t surprised when school was cancelled. The boys took the day to stay in pj’s and play and I took some time to catch up on challenges and stamp.

This card combines the color challenge, sketch challenge and fell into the Limited Supplies challenge without me even knowing it until I looked it up to see if I had time to participate.  I’ve had this set for a while now but haven’t played with it much because the rules about previews had changed a bit.  Now it’s okay for us to post them and I find myself playing with my new items even more!   Plus I love non-traditional Valentine’s Day cards.  I am more of a blues and browns type of person than  reds and pinks, although I use them and do like them when I do. 

I started with a Baja Breeze cardstock base and layered it with Not Quite Navy and then a piece of Urban Garden designer series paper.  To get my Navy strips I cut a piece of cardstock to 3/4″ and then attached enough so it would be hidden behind my main image panel.  I then added a brad to each strip before attaching the layer to the main card base.  The main image is stamped in Basic Gray and I added a splash of Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss.  I then added my Baja Breeze heart stamped with Not Quite Navy ink and my punched heart stamped in Riding Hood Red on Pink Pirouette cardstock.  The best part about the small heart is that the image fits perfectly, and I do mean perfectly into the 3 heart punch that comes with the bundle.

The Love You Much bundle goes on sale on December 23rd, the same day that the Free Shipping Promotion is ending. That means if you have been holding off on ordering a few retiring sets or if you need to stock up on cardstock you can add a few items to your order and be well on your way to free shipping. Plus you will get a head start on Valentine’s Day cards since you should have everything you need in early January.

The Love You Much Bundle is available from December 23rd 2008 – January 31st 2009.
