A Couple of Valentines

Hello! I have made a couple of Valentines today with images by Nikki Burnette. The first one uses Ryla from Plate 73. I just love her lingerie and the cute little owl! The paper is is one sheet, with the layered look printed on it. It was a little bigger than I like to make my cards though, so I cut the center pink section out and moved the beige corners in. It still has the same look as the pre-printed piece but is now 5.25 inches square instead of 6. I know that may seem like a lot of effort for such a small change, but I have envelopes that will fit the 5.25!! I also wrapped silver cord around the card to mimic the strings hanging in the image. The sentiment is a vertical sentiment from Plate 52, but I cut the letters apart so I could mount it horizontally.

The Details:
Stamp: Ryla - Nikki Burnette (Plate 73), sentiment from Plate 52, both from Sweet Pea Stamps
Paper: Bo Bunny, Chocolate Chip 9Stampin Up), White for Image (Copic XPress)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Spun Sugar, Barn Door and Walnut Stain Distress Inks
Skin: E000,E00,E11,E13,R00,R20
Hair: E57,E59, E47,E49
Owl: E50,E53,E55,E57,E59
Background: E50,E53,R24,R29,R39
Misc: Silver Cord (SU), Stardust Stickles

My second card uses Arden from Nikki Burnette's Plate 82. This is one of my favorite cards that I have made in a long time! I know it is pretty simple without a lot of embellishment, but I was so pleased with how it came out! All of the papers and the "forever" sticker are form Echo Park. (I've just realized that it looks like I mounted the music sheet upside down because the parts that are showing all have the notes upside down! I think most of the "right side up" notes are under the heart! I don't play an instrument - is this normal?!))

The Details:
Stamp: Arden - Nikki Burnette (Plate 82), from Sweet Pea Stamps
Paper:Echo Park, Basic Black (SU), Iced Azalea (Prism), White for Image (Copic XPress)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Skin: E000,E00,E11,E13,R00,R20
Wings: RV00,RV02,RV04,RV06,C7,C9
Background: E50,E53,R24,R29,R39
Misc: Stardust and Black Stickles
, Sticker from Echo Park, Nestabilities Heart Die
