I am Gettin' a Cavity...

...from how sweet this card is! I was in New York when
someone at the LSS said to me "Have you seen these
Whipper Snapper Stamps?"Uh... NO!!! They are gorgeous! I LOVE this little guy. Here is what I did to make this card. I colored him with gamsol and Faber Castel pencils and of COURSE... I used (say it with me) SHIMMERZ on the wings and the sash! I used my oval nesties to cut Cupid out and for the mat behind him. This is SU DSP. LOVE this paper...and the colors just worked so well for this card. Then I got out the MS punches... LOVE THEM!!! I punched the hearts and mounted them on small scallop circles that I sponged. I popped them up for dimension. Next... I used my MS heart edge punch! LOVE IT! I wanted the hearts to show up... so I mounted white paper behind the hearts so they would show up. Then... once again... SHIMMERZ! I sponged it on the red card stock...Angel Wings... how appropriate! And here is my sugary sweet,cavity causing Valentine's Day card!!! Thanks for looking...now GO AND BRUSH!!!

The card is just adorable! Don't choke but I don't have any Shimmerz.
It looks so good when you use it, I may have to find some. My wish list just gets longer and longer!

That image is so adorable. I love how you added the hearts and used that awesome heart border punch. Those papers are awesome together. I agree with Cathy, I am going to have to add some of that Shimmerz to my list! They add so much fun to the card.

Cute, cute, cute. I love the hearts at the bottom. The look like you punched them with a scallopy heart punch. The bear is so cute and you did a great job coloring it.

This is great!!! He looks so cute. I don't have Shimmerz either, but I must find some soon. It adds so much to this card. This DSP is one of my faves, and I have tons of it, so I need to whip it out for some Valentine's myself. Beautiful card, the hearts along the bottom are the perfect touch.

I love the glitter you add and that border is to die for:) Very cute card!

How is Shimmerz different than SU!'s Dazzling Diamonds? I need to make a trip to Archiver's!

Aw I love this card. It took me a minute to figure out what MS meant, hopefully I'm right when I think it is Martha Stewart. Where did you find those heart punches. I get my MS (hopefully) stamps at Walmart, but have never seen these, but love them and they could be used on more then just Valentines, can you please tell me where you get them. Thank you.
