Studio G ATC size Valentine challenge....

Oh goodness i had WAY too much fun with these! i did all 8 in about 2 hours - pretty quick i think!
This first one is also from the etsy inspired challenge over on Hearthugsdesigns:
the etsy shop this week is Scrap-n-scribe - THE most adorable hairbows! anyway there are two different kinds of bows that i thought would look great on cards and here is one of them.

and now the whole set of 8 ATC valenties i made:

SO again - ATC size is 3.5" x 2.5" - so i gathered up my bittersweet pezzy picks kit goodies first and cut 8 pieces of solid Bazzill 5" x 3.5" and folded them in half. from there i picked out a tag sketch from the page maps page, some bittersweet patterned paper and selected a studio G stamp or two and went to town. i only had three inks out - all brilliance dew drops - chocolate, orchid and red poppy. i also had cinnamon stickles, ruby liquid pearls and pink liquid pearls along with my bittersweet clay embellies i made and the ribbon from the Pezzy's picks kit. this made it easy because everything i grabbed matched :) i did throw in a crocheted heart on one of them too.
i just love using the clay embellishments and have had ALOT of folks asking if i will be selling them - i do have some plans too that are in the works but no release date for you yet. there will be a birthday line, some little critters (of course) and easter. the easter ones will be made to match some of the new paper collections released at CHA. now where DID i put that coffee........i am going to need it!! hahahah!

i really want to see what other folks come up with so be sure to come back and leave me a link! also don't forget we have a polkadot pie contest running at the same time!

  4. Beautiful Valentine's Marti! I especially like the one about falling in chocolate :)

  5. Wonderful...all fantastic cards.

  6. These ATCs are just too cute! I love them all! Thanks for playing along in my challenge, it really means a lot to me!

  7. Those are beautiful! I've never been a big fan of brown, but it looks so great with the pink & red.

    I used your idea of the ATC size for some valentines, but I used Stampin' Up stamps, not Studio G's, so I can't be in your challenge. I'll put the pic up on my PCP page later.

  8. These are all so cute! I love your EtsyInspired ATC with the textured heart and the ribbon treatment!
