Hearts Galore!!

Happy Wednesday again!

This is my first post of the day, so be sure to keep scrolling down to see all of my ramblings.

Well, today is the last day of sneak peeks for Pink Cat Studio, because the new stamp sets will be available for purchase tomorrow!!! Can you wait?! I know I can't. I am too excited! And it is all because of the wonderful sneak peeks from the DT. Man, they have been absolutely fantastic! I have so many wonderful new ideas to try, my poor notebook is packed!

So, on with the peeks! My first card is a final sneak peek of the new Lily and Billy Sweethearts set. I have to say, this is probably one of my favorite images of Lily and Billy ever. When Melissa first showed it to me, all I could think aout was how cute Lily and Billy would be inside a heart. I mentioned it to Melissa and she even sent me a whole bunch of hearts shapes to print out and try! Isn't she wonderful! So here is my card!

AREN'T THEY THE CUTEST THING EVER?!!! Yes, I am screaming because I am so excited. I just love their little faces and how they are back to back, they fit perfectly in a heart. I started this card by stamping Lily and Billy back to back from the new Lily and Billy Sweethearts set by Pink Cat Studio on white card stock and colored it in with my copics. I then cut out hearts in brown, white and some DP from DCWV, using Melissa's template she sent me and mounted my cut out Billy and Lily in the center. I then layered on two different DPs along with some brown card stock. I tied a brown and white stitched ribbon across the middle and then cut out several different sized hearts using my Cricut machine. I finished the card off by stamping the sentiment, also from the new Lily and Billy set on a white heart and place three brads in each corner! I just love the yummy colors on this card and the perfect V. Day image!

My second card is my final sneak peek of the new Kiki Kitty set by Pink Cat Studio. It too is a Valentine's day card, but has more traditional "love" colors. LOL!

See, what I mean, pinks and chocolate browns. I am embarrassed to say though that this is actually baby paper, but hey, it still works! I started this card off by stamping Kiki holding balloons from Kiki Kitty on white card stock and three different kinds of DP. I then paper pieced the balloons (isn't it great that they are heart shaped?!) and then stamped the sentiment on the first balloon. I colored in Kiki and then cut her out along with brown and pink card stock using my nesties. I then layered on two different kinds of DP along with some brown card stock. To finish the card, I tied a brown ribbon around the top. And the great thing about this image is that it doesn't just have to be for V. Day. It can also be used for birthdays, thinking of you cards, pretty much anything you can think of!

Well, tomorrow is the big day, the unveiling! Please stop back by and see the new sets!! Now, make sure you check out my second post and then visit all of the other wonderful DT creations. This is definitely what I am doing! Thanks for stopping by!

Oh just gorgeous Janna and I love how you have put Lily and Billy in the heart. Love the way you have done the sentiment and the blue and brown colour combination. Your Kiki card is also just so pretty and love the sweet papers and your paper piecing. Gorgeous colouring as always, Big Hugs, Nikki x

And am I wrong, or do we have some congratulations for you in order? Didn't I see you win the MFT Guest DT spot?

Mariska said...

Oh wow Janna these are gorgeous!! I love the colours on both cards. My scraproom is actually dark brown and light blue and most of my stuff is pink :). I love all the layers in the hearts on the Lily and Billy card and love what you did with the balloons in the Kiki card, babypaper works perfect there as far as I'm concerned!! I've been loving all of your creations in these sneak peeks Janna, you are one talented lady!!!

Sarah {SCS: Sairabee} said...

These are gorgeous! I love the colors you used!

You asked the other day how I got my squares to line up so well on my cupid billy card... I cut the heart paper in a 4x4 square, then cut two blue squares at 2x2 and placed one in each (opposite) corner. They don't come together perfectly in the middle, but it's covered by the main image. ;)

I had so much fun talking to you again today and you know what I would not care if you did call me every day you are so much fun to talk too!!!

Plus ya know it gets lonely some times and It is nice to talk to someone who shares my passion for stamping in the same way I do!!!!

The Kiki card is so lovely as well I need to get me some of those ovals!!!
