#181 Love, Love, Love

Lin (Me) is hosting our challenge today, and the theme is Love, Love, Love. As Valentine's Day is just a couple of weeks away now is the time to make something special for the one you love, or just for someone in love!

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it has a love theme.

Please remember our 15 total challenge rule!

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT


Lin
As I don't have a 'love' interest (everyone say ahhh) I have made a wedding card for my love theme, using a LOTV image (my favourite one) and a Chloe Endean stamp for the frame surrounding the embossed panel. More details on my blog

As the theme is Love I made this for my husband for Valentine's Day. I used the heart die and the sentiment die by Crafter's Companion and the tiny hearts are from the Romantic Edger Die Set by Sue Wilson. The embossed corner is an embossing folder from my stash

Judy

Love is the theme of this challenge and I made my collage card for my husband for our wedding anniversary this month. The collage is made up of designer paper, die cuts, punches, washi tape and rubber stamping. Hope he enjoys the card.

I chose to make a traditional style valentine card, and used some gorgeous Sue Wilson dies, punched hearts and a computer-generated sentiment.

Glenda
Love has many options so I decided a cute Valentine card for a grand niece would be my choice,  I used a Mo Manning digital stamp, Stampin' Up paper, Stampin' Up cardstock and a few dies for my card.

My parents have just celebrated their Ruby Anniversary and I didn't want anything cutesy or too fussy so in the end I plumped for white on white with just the little red ribbon.  The cuts are all done on the Cricut and I've used foam pads to raise the heart and the frame.

I used a digi from Beccy's Place called Owl Love and coloured it using alcohol pens.

Like Glenda said, love has many options and, as we don't really get involved with Valentine's Day, I have made a card for dearly loved friend's Birthday. This is a double fold card made with layers of designer paper, lace, die-cut leaves, a chipboard frame, flairs, some sisal and an altered flower.

I couldn't quite decide whether this would be a Valentine or Anniversary card so hedged my bets with the sentiment. Made this with my favourite technique, another Masterboard, heart dies and tiny heart brads. Happy crafting, Angela x

My card was made for a friend to send to her husband for Valentines Day.  She didn't want cutesy, and he doesn't like romantic, so I thought this fitted the bill!  I used a score board to emboss the hearts on my base card, and a stamped "kiss" for the rest of the background. 

 
This is a card for my hubby for Valentine's Day.  This sweet stamp is Sharing a Secret by Dreamerland Crafts.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.  I love it!  It's exactly how I feel about our relationship.  Hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day. 

Hello, today I want to share with you a wedding card. I added heart chipboard which I covered Cosmic Shimmer - golden lustre, added some fabric roses and paper flowers. A sentence means: Young Couple on a wedding day.

Sally
For my Love themed project I used the 'Baa- Humbug' and 'Thinking of Ewe' stamp sets from Hobby art, along with some Marianne Designs dies, an embossing folder and acetate to create a shaker card.

Peggy
For my card, I used K and Co. "Smitten" paper for the background.  All the lovely dies are from a new set by Anna Griffin called "Love/Easter Seasonal Cut and Emboss Dies.
