I stamped the sunflower in brown ink on 2 panels with my Misti and then die cut the rectangles. preview-CrazyDoubleRunningStitches-RectangleI used the CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies. img_7383_edited-1Then I colored in the frame of 1 panel and the center of the other and reassembled the panels.

LOVE TAGplorations – Day 5 – February 12, Sunday

Hi! I’m here for the 5th day of the LOVE TAGplorations event.  The event will last for 7 days, with the final day being Valentine’s Day. The STAMPlorations Girls will be showcasing love-themed or Valentine’s Day tags or projects which include tags. You can play along too!

I have a CAS, tagged, Valentine’s Day card to share with you today.

 img_7202_edited-1This makes me think of a balloon, celebrations (like the Patriots winning the Super Bowl) and my husband who is a career military officer and, in my opinion, a hero. I think that this might be his Valentine’s Day card.

 I sponged red ink onto the white card base using the Zen Hearts ARTplorations stencil.
