Valentine Friends

Happy Valentine's Day! My good friend, Lynell, and I are in the UK, most likely having a blast in London. Hopefully, not fighting our way through snow and rain, but is London, so damp is not an option.

Meanwhile, back at the blog, the Dream Team are playing with the "Love and Friendship" theme for February. How many Valentine's have you created this month? Link them up on the Dream It Up! blog for a chance to win this month's prize.

My post this week once again features the newly-released Ruffled Heart, with some super-fun papers from My Minds Eye's "Dwell" collection. I traced the hearts on the papers and cut them out (stack and cut...less time!), scored them through the center, layered and adhered them on top of one machine embossed heart. (Need a reminder on this process? Click HERE.) To make the design on that heart stand out more, I inked the stencil with a shade of ink just darker than the paper. This deeper color become letter-pressed into the paper. I used the same trick with the Forever Friends strip as well. A flower and rhinestone finish off this fun friend card.

So, do the blog run-around and visit the rest of the team for more Love and Friendship:

By the way, did you know that we are having a call for new Dream Team designers? All the info is on page two of my blog HERE. If you love Dreamweavers, and it shows, then we want YOU!

So cute and in non-traditional Valentine's colors makes it even better! Have a great time in the UK. Wish we could send some of our sunny California weather with you.
