Love Times Three


Just loved the sketch Verve Diva Charmaine posted for this week's sketch challenge.  Such a fun sketch with a myriad of shapes you can use in lieu of the oval if you want to.  I opted to go with my lacy square nesties.

I pulled out some fun K and Company DP I found at Michael's.  Unfortunately the row of hearts that is upright ended up begin covered up by the ribbon so you get the look at the upside down row LOL!

I used my scalloped heart nesties die to punch out a heart in Red Rose, Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink and placed them on the diagonal with the last one getting a touch of bling.  I just "love" (no pun intended) the script of this Rubber Soul stamp as well as it's small size.  It was the perfect fit for that empty bottom corner :)

In keeping with my recent crimper phase, I decided to use it on the horizontal panel for a bit of dimension and added some white ribbon to finish things off.  I am thrilled with how this turned out and now just have to decide who to give it to :)

Have a fabulous day and thanks for sharing a bit of yours with me!

I love this! Your colors are so pleasing and the little bit of bling on one heart is so special. All the elements come together perfectly!

Maureen said...

love the 3 hearts together...made me think you might have been thinking of your family :) You are rockin' the bling lately!! Keep it going!! Yup, it's cold today so I have all my winter gear...it's only 15 minutes, but always feels like an hour when you're cold (and I don't do cold well! lol). But then it's done for the week :) I think they call for snow here WEds. too, but then showers on Thursday...lol...stay warm too :)

I am CASEing is called LSC162 Times Three, and today's post of yours is called .....Times Three. Weird, huh? It means that I am thinking of you, I suppose! Love your Valentine today. :)

Fabulous Marisa! I made a 'cute' valentine's card this week but you've inspired me to dig out these papers and make something a little more sophisticated! xx

Christina said...

Those hearts are super cute! Love the three gems you added, they are just perfect. Beautifully done!

Denise Marzec said...

Beautiful! I just got those MFT heart dies for Christmas and I LOVE them...especially this ruffled one!

Wanda Cullen said...

Gorgeous Valentine!! I had to do some major digging as the EF you asked me about seems to be a rarity. I did find one on ebay and the bid is only a little over a dollar. Here's the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/SIZZiX-ARGYLE-2-Lge-A2-Embossing-Folder-Fit-Cuttlebug-/160528470470?pt=US_Die_Cutting_Machines_Dies&hash=item25603e11c6
It is by Sizzix and is called argyle.

Gorgeous hearts and blend of colors!! It's okay to have hearts "up and down" isn't that what happens in real life??!! Snow at my house and sleet on its' way. Went in to work for a few hours and then came home. We don't have the equipment here in Charlotte to deal with this. Grew up around Chicago, so it's always interesting to see how things close here with the slightest weather. We're cold {for us}... I'm sure you are colder!! Yikes... certainly don't miss that!!

Hi Marissa! Thanks for letting me know about my cards on Nancy's blog! It had been a busy weekend so I had not been to her blog. It took me a bit to find you! This card is beautiful. I checked out some of the other posts and you have a lot of lovely cards! Have a wonderful week.

Benzi said...

Marisa, this is so sweet AND beautiful at the same time. Yes, I do have that paper. It is perfect for Valentines. I just stood on my head to see those beautiful hearts. LOL Just kidding. If you hadn't mentioned it, I wouldn't have noticed. Just a lovely creation.
