Valentine Hugs

It's the final Melabration Day! Melanie is wrapping up her week long blogaversary celebration by giving away a Gina K Designs set called Rectangle Greetings, so be sure to stop by her blog to get entered to win. She will also be announcing a new contest! In addition to Melanie's gorgeous creations, you can visit Donna for one of her fabulous samples. (Thank you, Melanie, for letting participate in your celebration. You and your wonderful stamps ROCK!)

This time I paired up the bear from Jumping for Joy with the tulip from A Year of Flowers. I stamped them on Gina K Pure Luxury white cardstock, then colored the images with Copic markers and cut them out.

The top layer is cut with my square scallop nestabilities die and sponged, with Regal Rose, while still in the die. I stamped two hearts from Framed Friends to give it a Valentine feel and then put a heart brad in the bear to make him look like he is holding it. Additional layers are Basic Black and Pretty in Pink.

Thanks for visiting. Have a wonderful day!
