We Both “Love You”

By | February 14, 2017

Ok, I have to admit, this was really fun… yesterday afternoon I made a Valentine card (the one on the right with the dragonflies) and about an hour later, I got a Valentine card in the mailbox (the one on the left) from SIL Sherry.

It wasn’t until I had looked at both of these cards for a while that I realized, entirely by chance, Sherry and I did some very similar things with our cards!

First of all, we used the same color scheme: Black, White, Red and Gray. Second, we both chose a sentiment stamp that says, “Love You.”

We both used the small retired heart punch for accents, and I enhanced my black dragonflies die cut with Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (gold) while Sherry added some fine glitter to her little black heart. While I used the watercolor swashes stamps from the Work of Art set as a  background, Sherry actually water-colored a free-hand heart as her central motif.

So how cool is that? Sherry and I live on opposite sides of the country, and we only get to stamp together once a year. But somehow, we were both on the same wavelength while producing our Valentine cards this year!

Here are the colors that Sherry and I used on our cards:

And here are some of the products that we used:

 Happy Valentine’s Day – from both of us!

    I love both cards. I like the use of grey to soften the contrast of the other colours. It is funny how this kind of coincidence happens, isn’t it?!

    Absolutely great cards! I always learn something from seeing what you have done!
