Valentines Blog Hop Week Two

Hello All!  Well its been a few days but my blog was being cranky!!!  Oh well these things happen.  Now on to the second week of Shirley Pumpkin's amazing Valentines Blog Hop
Hop on over to Shirley's Blog to check out everything!  You can also view cards from everyone who joins in and post your own creation from links at the end of this post!  So show us your loving side and share what you make!

This week I went with some non-traditional colours.  Confession I did not really like Calypso Coral when it first came out in fact I had not even opened my ink pad until someone I granted a wish for requested that colour.  It kind of grew on me when I played around with the inks and now I love it!!! And the New Sweet Shop DSP has me hooked even more!  Check below of a list of supplies used for this card and catalogue info as well.  You can head on over to my Stampin up! Site to order everything you need to make this card.

The base is Calypso Coral which I ran through the Letter Press Plate with Versa Mark.  Next I used the Scallop edge punch to create an edge detail.  I layered a piece of the DSP from Sweet Shop this one has a great raised heart image and adds great dimension to projects.  Next came Pool Party which I ran through the Big Shot with the scallop envelop die.
The hearts were created with the Fashionable Hearts Sizzlet available in the new Mini ( love these hearts they are embossed and cut all in one turn of the Big Shot!!!)  I made the hearts  with scraps of Early Espresso Card Stock, Calypso Coral and Glitter paper in Silver. Fab way to use up all those scraps of CS you have laying around - I mean nicely stored in folders!
I then punched a glitter heart with the large heart punch - a must have all year long!
Here is a closer shot of the Shimmer and cool embossed hearts.  I used the ruffled ribbon in Pool Party and popped up some of the hearts and the large heart with Dimensionals
 On the inside I ran a 1 1/2 inch piece of Pool Party through the Letter Press with Heart Pressed again so that the colour Pool Party would show through the scalloped edge of the card.  I stamped a saying form PS. I love you it says Be My Valentine I used the I love you stamp on the front of the card.
This is the back of the card.  I do not usually show you this part because it usually is just my name stamp but they have a couple of cute stamps to mark your work with and I wanted you to see how cute this one is!

Hope you enjoyed the card! Now its your turn come play with us!!
