It's a Valentine's Blog Hop at The Cuttlebug Spot!

If you've arrived from Jennifer's Blog, you're in the right place!!  If you've arrived here first, you'll want to head on back to The Cuttlebug Spot to find out all the details on how you can WIN some fabulous PRIZES.

Hello and welcome here.  It's a Valentine's Blog Hop at The Cuttlebug Spot, how fun is that!?!  Here is my Valentine's creation for you to enjoy.

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
This happens to be another Pinterest inspired card:)  The original one was made with paint chips and butterflies.  I changed it up Deneen-style.  I love the different embossed strips, and I used the same paper for the hearts but just switched the colours around so that the darkest colour started at the top. I didn't have a punch for the hearts so I fussy cut them.  The swirls I cut down from a bigger swirl, and hid some of the ends behind my hearts.

I added CTMH Liquid Glass (aka Glossy Accents) to the hearts.  I added the rhinestones first before I covered them with Liquid Glass. 


 Inside:
Recipe:  PP-Crate Paper Random Collection Pattern, Bazzill Prismatics CS-4 pink colours, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH SS-A Little Everything & Heartthrob, CTMH Ink-Black & Baby Pink, EF-Cuttlebug Swiss Dots & Textile, Craft Concepts Budding Vine & Sizzix Raspberry Frame, Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork, Corner Rounder, Rhinestones, CTMH Liquid Glass, Foam Squares.

Cuttlebug Items Used:
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Textile
Craft Concepts Embossing Folder- Budding Vine
Sizzix Embossing Folder- Raspberry Frame
Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork Die

Now it's off to Brianna's Blog for her wonderful Valentine's creation.

Enjoy,
Deneen
