On this particular card we used glossy paper. The very first thing we did was emboss the image in white embossing powder. You could easily use clear embossing powder but since we weren't using an embellishments, I wanted this embossed image to pop. One we finished the embossing, we simple sponged classic ink over the embossed image. I used Lovely Lilac and Apricot Appeal. The very last step was wiping any excess ink off the glossy cardstock. If you've never tried this technique, give it a try. You'll love the results.

On February 13, my very talented cupid sent me shredding scissors and a mini ruler. I didn't know that shredding scissors even existed. I think they would be great for cutting grass (making cardstock look like grass) and making flowers. I just found this blog called Maya * Made. You need to check it out. She's such a crafty gal! On Feb. 13, my cupid also got me a clear mini ruler with a straight edge. I can think of a trillion ways to use this.
My day 3 gift was something that I dearly love. When I opened it, I had this strong gut feeling that I knew who my cupid was. I was right!! It was LisaBee. You can see some of her beautiful work on her blog as well as on the gallery of Stampin' Addicts. Here's a couple of links for you...

And yesterday was Valentine's Day. Happy Valentine's to all my friends!!! So was my 3rd and final gift? It was a CD by Casting Crown. I absolutely love Casting Crowns and don't own it! In fact, I don't own and CDs because I usually check them out of the library at church. I'm so bad about keeping them longer than I'm suppose too. Well, I guess I can listen to this one as long as I want! I haven't listened to this one yet, so you know what I'm going to be doing while I'm stamping!. Thank you sweet LisaBee!!
Now in this picture, check out the felt flower! Lisa used the Big Shot to die cut this beautimous flower! I told you this girl was talented!!
