Monograms?

 Hey all!

How do you feel about monograms?  I've never really had an opinion about them until now.  Spellbinders came out with a set of letterpress dies.  I think they are so pretty.  I also love how they paired them with sentiments so they can be used in alternate ways.   

I'm in a penpal group and I thought that I would make each of my friends a card that showcases their first initials (don't worry they should have already received them by this posting).  

I letter pressed each letter and then used perfect pearls to color the flowers yellow.  They have a real soft shine to them. I used diamond dots to accent the center of the flowers. I felt like they needed some extra shine.  I'm not sure I'm in love with the black but I tried silver and gold and wasn't sold on those either.  I'll have to keep working on it.  

I hope the girls love their cards. I really enjoyed making them for our team.   Do you guys have penpals? How long have you been writing?

All of the Hearts

Hello! 

Taylored Exressions had a great Valentine's release this year.   One of my favorites is this hanging string.  You can hand whatever you like from the string.  My mind just went wild with ideas.    Obviously the best place to start for Valentine's Day is hearts.  I used the new textured heart dies to create a bunch of hearts and placed them on the strings.  It is a simple but elegant card for the season.
