Creative Knockouts #127 - Love Is In the Air

My card for this week's Creative Knockouts challenge uses an image from All Dressed Up's Love to Shop collection of girls.  She's one I have had in my collection for a while and unfortunately, I can't find her in the ADU Etsy shop right now, but there are enough girls that you could use the same idea for a card design.  I have used ADU girls before and paired them with a sentiment.  I used the Sugar Cuts Notched Journal Card Die for the heart background and some patterned papers from a Valentine Crate Paper 6x6 stack.  Take a peek at the DT inspiration here and then play along with us this week!

A Day for Daisies - Valentine Showcase

This week, the ADFD DT all got to pick different Valentine-related images and use the inspiration board to create our cards.  My image is called Cupid Party.  I decided to pop out the hearts and one of the wings.  Everything is glittered up IRL, sorry it doesn't come across in the photo.  Check out what the rest of the DT did here with Tammy's images and get started on some of your own Valentine's cards! Thanks to MojoMonday #432 for the design sketch.

Creative Knockouts #125 - Embossing

Our challenge is all about embossing this week at Creative Knockouts - heat embossing or embossing folders.  You don't have to ask me twice to use an embossing folder, so this challenge is right up my alley!  Fred, She Said is our sponsor and this image is called Emma the Snowangel.  Who doesn't love making snow angels?1?   I can't wait to see what you do when you play along with us this week!
