Savings and inspiration you'll LOVE!!!

Free for All Friday with Border

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!  What a great day set aside to tell people you love them!  And on that note today we bring you another round of inspiration from our amazing Design Team in our Gambler’s Sale...this week we’re at 40% off!  In just a few days the prices will drop again to 50% off...the gamble is how long you wait before those items you love are gone!

Ok.. on to my creation! I had to do a Valentine's Day Creation today to not only wish you all a day of warm fuzzies but to share the card I made for my sweetie! If you read this post HERE, you know how special this set Tokens of Affection is to me! So.... my card!

For my creation, I had it in my head that I wanted to do a gate fold card with the hearts overlapping... and so.. that's where my creation led me! I used Spellbinders Classic Hearts and Classic Scalloped Hearts to cut out my shapes from Flourishes Classic White. While the die was still on, I did sponge on some Spun Sugar Distress Ink for a soft look. I stamped the robot in Tuxedo Black ink and the sentiment as well, adding the hearts from the Love Notes stamp set. From there -- I colored with Copics and used a range of reds, and pinks and cool greys. I tried to stick to color collections grouped by Flourishes but then, lost track! I used every red and pink marker I had! :-) Most of the paper is from the Alphabet Junction paper pack. The strip on the right is actually some old BasicGrey. 

I have to say those loopy brads have been in a drawer FOREVER and I love pulling them out in times like these when you just need a dash of whimsy! I used some red grosgrain and pink gingham ribbon to thread through for extra flair! You can also see in the other photo I added a screw head brad -- I thought that was fun. I have had those in my embellishment drawer forever too! I literally got those 5 years ago! ;-) 

And, here's a peek at the inside -- more hearts and -- a little note for my lovey to have a Happy Valentine's Day! 

And that, my friends, is it! The Flourishes girls are picking out sets and goodies they love to show to you, so head on over to visit and leave them some love:

Cute and clever! I still have some of those loopy brads, too. Thanks for the reminder. There's so much in my stash I need to use up. I've always loved this set. Used the love tank for my sweetie's Valentine one year, and it's still a favorite.
