Some 2019 Valentines

I adore the Aurora Wings  FB follower's Gift --Valentine Sprite   Thank you Mitzi SatoWiuff ---I have colored her with Prismacolor pencils, accented with Nuvo crystal drops, Wink of Stella and other.  The matte is cut from SU Real Red paper and uses the Simon Says Heart Sprinkle Trail die to continue the heart fall.  The Sprite is cut from the next to largest heart from the Sizzix 657561 Heart dieset. And the Happy Valentine's Day Sentiment is found in Newton's Nook Love-Ow-ways stamp and die sets heat-embossed in white.

This Sprite has a Conversation Hearts embossed background by Taylored Expressions; is edged with Starform holographic red heart sticker lines from Pop Ups Etc  She's colored in Prismacolor Pencils, and Wink of Stella as well as some red stickles.  The inside of the card is a greeting for my BFF and uses the Thanks Corner from Poppy Stamps.

This is the last Aurora Wings Sprite for this year's valentines.  The Sprite is colored in Prismacolor Pencils, accented with wink of stella, glitter pens and stickles, and matted on a Real Red heart that is over Taylored Expressions Conversation Hearts. The sentiment is stamped using stamps from Lawn Fawn's Happy Everything collection.

So---WHAT do you do when the background you thought you'd love FLOPS and you hate the card?  Carefully take the artpiece off and make it again the center of focus for a new card.  
 I didn't like it because it was TOO busy, and distracted from the little Sprite when I accented watermarked design with Posca white Pen

The Embossing doesn't show well here, it is fine detail Pearl embossing powder, and a Heart Line sticker.finishing the cleaner look of the largest sprite I colored.

These adorable owls are from the stampset "Love Owl-ways" by Netwon's Nook.  They are colored with copics, Wink of Stella, glitter pens, etc.  The white lined front window portion uses My Favorite Things  Die-Namics Stitched Lines die.  The three windows at the top are cut from My Favorite things Stitched Collage Frames die, (using just the three "side" frames in that die).  Guess who loves you is stamped and punched with an SU punch and the inside   The inside stitched hearts strip is diecut from Poppystamps Gentle hearts.  The ink and paper are SU Real Red. Scattered hearts are diecuts out of several heart trails type dies.that cut assorted sizes of hearts.

Super simple Cute Owl Valentines made in Photoshop, (clipart shared from a friend, do not know that name of the graphic artist to credit).  These are printed on glossy photo paper, matted and then either enamel dots or stickles dots on the hearts.  ---QUICK and cute.  Font is Gil Sans Ultra Bold vertical orientation.  Colored matting is from stash.

  1. My goodness, Priss! You certainly have been on a roll here. I love all of your cards but, of course, my favorites are with Mitzi's adorable Valentine Sprite. You sure had some fun with her and your coloring and designs are beautiful on each, but my fave just has to be the first with the extension of the heart spray using the die. Brilliant! Thanks so much for joining us at Aurora Wings. xxD

  2. Wonderful set of cards but the first one with the extra hearts is my favourite. Thanks for joining us at Aurora Wings challenge. Hugz
