Delightful Inspiration Saturday Challenge

It's Saturday and that means...the last Saturday DT Challenge for Delightful Inspiration.  I am the host this week and since today is exactly one month until Valentine's Day, I chose "hearts" as the challenge.  It's time to get started making Valentine cards, gifts, etc...


This is a simple, mass-producible card and it is also, mail friendly.  I just love this digi and it's so quick and easy to color.  I just added some DP and a doily that you can find in the baking aisle.  You should be able to find them easily this time of year with all the Valentine displays that popped up overnight as soon as Christmas Day was over.

Recipe:
Stamps - Cupcake Love Ya
Paper - Trick or Treat Polka Dots (The Paper Studio)
Coloring - Copics
Misc - Doily, Glossy Accents

Challenges:
Pixie Dust Studio - Put Your Heart Into It
I Brake For Challenges - I Brake for Simple!
I couldn't stop at one and used a retired digi.

"Simple Valentine"

I paper-pieced the heart-flower, added some DP, scalloped borders, stitching, buttons and ribbon to a premade Cricut tag.
I used the Heart Blocks EF on the card base.

Recipe:
Stamps - Simple Valentine (D2D), Greetings (Heidi Grace)
Paper - Ka Zoo Collection (K & Co.)
Coloring - Copics
Misc - Buttons, floss, Scallop border punch (SU!), Tag (Cricut George), Hole reinforcer, ribbon, Heart Blocks EF (Provo Craft)

Challenges:
Pixie Dust Studio - Put Your Heart Into It
Paper Play - In Stitches
The Pixie Cottage - Sketch and/or Stitching

Hop on over to the Delightful Inspiration Blog and check out some more "heart" projects and play along with us with a chance to win a free digi of your choice.
