Shades of Gold

Today the Challenge at Catherine and Cathy Create is all about the gold!  It's gold-i-licious!!!  So with the Olympics starting today, let's keep thinking G-O-L-D and wish all our Canadian athletes all the best for a safe and successful Olympic games.

Here's my card:

This card features several shades of gold. Here are the details:

Ink: Tsukineko Brilliance - Galaxy Gold, Gold embossing powder by SU
Paper: SU Whisper White, Reflections Gold

So while I was in a "gold" mood I whipped up a wedding card as well.

Valentines Day is fast approaching and so today Catherine and Cathy Create is all about "HEARTS".
Here's my card:

This is a clean and simple card, a bit of a departure for me, but I like how it turned out.  I embossed the heart with the Nestabilities Hearts die.  The Stamp set is from Yippee Skippee, stamped in Cherry Cobbler, and the tiny glitter heart was cut with the Owl Builder punch.

Here is a closeup:

While I'm here I thought I'd show you a few more Valentine Cards I case'd.

This one was from our Demo Swap.

This is from a tutorial by SplitCoast Stampers.  Check it out here.  Here is a closeup:

This last one is case'd from Dawn Olchefske her tutorial is here.

Hope you enjoyed them!
