New Release Friday!

Hello Friends! It's Friday and you know what that means...NEW digital stamps in the MelJen's Shop! It's February, the month of LOOOVE. Melissa has created a few goodies to help you with making your Valentine's Day cards. Have a look...

Cute, right? I chose to feature the Little Heart Vase today.

In keeping with my Clean & Simple card class, I decided to go CAS with my card this week. I printed the vase on Neenah White card stock and colored it with Copics. I just love those little 'heart flowers'. I die cut the image and while it was still in the die, I dusted it with a little blue distress ink. I added glitter pen accents and sprinkled on a few tiny twinkles. After using a heart border punch and stamping LOVE, I adhered the focal panel with dimensional adhesive. All of that was mounted onto a card base, over a strip of polka dot paper.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
'VALENTINE'S or LOVE' ~ MilkCoffee
'ANYTHING GOES'~ Through the Craftroom Door
'ANYTHING GOES'~ Simon Says Stamp 
code word 'HEART'~ Addicted to CAS  
'HEARTS'~ The Pink Elephant

And please take a moment to swing by the MelJen's Design Team blog to see what the other members created to share with you.
