Happy Valentine's Day 67

Mona Pendleton | Monday, February 7, 2011 @ 10:58 PM | , , ,

Hi there! So did you have fun watching the new commercials introduced during the Super Bowl? My fave was the one with the mini Darth Vader!!! So stinkin' cute! The marketing team that created that one must be so incredibly proud of themselves for producing such a hit that entertained millions and continues to do so, thanks to the www! Anyways, here to share a Valentine's Day card:
I pulled out some patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Be Loved Collection that I have been hoarding since last year! I stamped an image from Stitched with Love Borders & Centers stamp set, colored with various Copic markers listed below then stitched the card together. I made a few layered heart embellishments using S4-136 Classic Heart and S4-137 Classic Scalloped Heart die templates then stitched together fastening a button to the front. For sketch inspiration, I played along with the JustRite Friday Challenge #048.
Did you know JustRite Stampers now sell their own custom die templates manufactured by Spellbinders® made specifically to coordinate with various JustRite stamp sets? In the photo below,  you can get a good luck at the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment that was cut/embossed using a JustRite die template. Both the stamp and the die are from the JustRite Stampers Happy Everything Mini Tag Kit.
Tonight we will be celebrating my son's birthday with him and his girlfriend April :) Hope you have a great day and thanks for visiting! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: JustRite Stampers Happy Everything Mini Tag Kit, Stitched with Love Borders & Centers
Die Templates & Machine:  Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-136 Classic Heart, S4-137 Classic Scalloped Heart, S4-242 Big Scalloped Borderabilities Petite, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye Be Loved Collection
Copic Markers: T1 Toner Gray No. 1, T3 Toner Gray No. 3, T5 Toner Gray No.5, E35 Chamois

This is so beautiful and cute at the same time! I love the way you have put the PP together. Love it! And as for the VW Darth Vader commercial, it was my favorite. That little kid was so darn cute to watch and I loved how the father 'helped his son' to bring his dream alive.
