J'adore L'Amore!!!!!

There's a new release over at Cupcake Cards and Crafts - the collection is called L'Amour and it's all different shades of pinks and reds. It is perfect for valentine's day but it could also be used all year round and if you ask me, it's absolutely gorgeous!!! You can also win the collection by taking part in the February challenge at the Cupcake Craftroom, where the theme is 'Love and Romance'. The card I posted earlier was made using these papers and here's another couple of cards I've made using them:

The first card was really easy to make but I really like it cos that paper is so striking. All I did was cover the bottom half of a square card blank with some pale pink Papermania card, I then covered the top half of the card with the Cupcake's paper - cutting the bottom of this piece at an angle then I covered the join with lots of different coloured pink hearts that had been cut with my Slice. The sentiment is also from the paper collection.
The second card features Magnolia's Edwin watercoloured with distress inks (another one from the new collection) - this really is my favourite medium for rubber stamping, I just love the effect. As well as the papers from the L'Amour collection, I've also used some grey Papermania card, which I used my Slice to cut a scalloped heart outline for Edwin to stand upon, Gems from my stash, the ribbon is from Papermania too and lastly, a couple of flowers from Hobbycraft.
I'm also entering my card/s into the following challenges:
OK - I think that's about it!! There are sooooo many valentine's type challenge's going on at the moment! By the time it comes around I'm gonna be as fed up of making cards with hearts on as I was with Christmas cards!! Have a good day, everyone. I hope you'll leave me a comment. TTFN!
