Valentine Cards ~ Wild Love by Photoplay

Hi everyone, I am back to share some more Valentine Day cards.   If you missed my first set of cards, please check them out HERE.
For this set of cards, my aim was to use the Wild Love Paper collection by Photoplay.

Card 1- Hello Wild One
For this card, I started with a panel of watercolour paper 4" W x 5 9/19"H . I used Distress Ink Tumble Glass and created an ombre background sky heavy on the bottom and light on top.
Next, I used the Wild Love Paper.  I cut out a bigger panel of the blush side: 2" W x 5 9/19"H And a smaller panel of the green side:  1 3/4" W x 5 9/19"H I used baker's twine to wrap around a few times and then tied it into a bow. Next, I used the journaling card with the 2 teepees. I fussy cut this out and laid it on the bottom right side corner.
Next, from the sticker sheet, I used the 'Hello wild one speech bubble' and a single pink heart sticker.

And here is the final card

Card 2- Wild Love

Wild Love Mixed Media Valentine Cards

Hi everyone, As soon as I saw the cute critters in Photoplay's 'Wild Love' paper collection, I knew that I had to make cards that featured them. I really wanted to make mixed media cards using the extras I picked up along with the core products (see my unboxing).

So I grabbed these and my Ranger Distress Oxides as well as the journaling cards and the sticker sheet as main elements.
One more element that I used to make the card front was this Letter It card stock from Ranger.

I am delighted that it held up to mixed media and stamping use!

Mixed Media Technique 1 - Stencilling and Distress Oxide

For this card, I used the Kaisercraft stencil and 4 colors of Distress Oxide on the card stock (which I trimmed to 4" wide) : - Iced Spruce, - Salty Ocean, - Picked Raspberry, - Peacock Feathers,
I then fussy cut the journaling card with the cute bear and attached that to the front of the card stock. I added a banner from the sticker sheet, a few hearts and finally another quick …

Happy Australia Day 2019

Hi everyone,
Amira here to wish you all a wonderful Australia Day.

I thought I would update you all on what Ive been doing over the past few months for me.
I have gone back to school (well college to be exact) and I am working on getting certified to go into the aged care sector.  I am specifically focusing on dementia and disability. I have about 6 weeks to go before I go on placement in March and then I very much look forward to starting a rewarding career in aged care. 
It's going to be a very busy next couple of months!!
It has also been a great summer holidays!  Having my boys home from school is always a blessing although I don't know how it happens, but the contents of my kitchen usually end up in the theatre in front of the playstation.  Hmmm interesting that- especially when there is a blanket "No eating in the theatre" rule!! 
A member of our family has also had a bit of a pamper and just in time for Australia Day no less!
A van show up in front of our hou…
