Be My Valentine

Hi there! Just dropping in with another post for my CAS card class. I am LOVING all of the things I'm learning. The classes are jam-packed with information and most evenings my head is reeling with ideas and images of projects I want to make. I'm trying to keep track of everything and as I find time, I slip into my studio and create something. The good thing about the CAS style, for me, is that most of the planning is in my head. The execution of the actual project is easy, it's the design that takes time. I have to admit that I am embracing the CAS style a lot better than I was at the outset of this class. I'm not stressing out anymore and I think I may be getting the hang of it. The card I am sharing today, is for the lesson entitled, Simple Embellishments. We were to create our own embellishment using non-embellishment items. Ahhh...hard to explain, easier to show. Take a look...

stamp set: Tiny Treats:Valentine, Green Thumb(Papertrey Ink)
card stock: Real Red(Stampin' Up!)   White Layering Weight(GinaK Designs)
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Memento Bamboo Leaves(Tsukineko)
punch: Heart to Heart(Stampin' Up!)
pearl(Mark Richards)

I created the flower using heart punches. I adhered them with dimensionals and placed them around the stamped stem and then added the pearl to conceal all the heart points. I really like how this turned out. Clean and simple. Less is more. :)

Thank you for stopping by today!
Blessings~
