This is the easel card I created after being inspired by the video below. It's a Valentine for my sweetie that says, "to gnome you is to love you." I stamped the gnomes on watercolor paper and used Stampin' Write Markers and a blender pen to color them in. My feature colors are So Saffron, Real Red and Pacific Point. Happy Valentine's Day to all of my stampin' Gnomies!

Here's another take on the butterfly card I previously made using torn scraps and a negative die image as the focal point. This time I used Fun Flowers Bigz L Die (121812) and scraps of Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. The flower die frame is made with Pool Party Card Stock stamped with the SAB Fresh Vintage Stamp Set in Versamark. The edges are inked with a sponge dauber and Pool Party Classic Ink. The Happy Birthday Dear You sentiment is from the Happiest Birthday Wishes Hostess set and the Hand Crafted sentiment is from the Tiny Tags stamp set. The card base is Soft Suede Card Stock. If you look at the listing of your designer series paper in one of the Stampin' Up! catalogs you will see a color key below the description. These are the colors of the paper pack which helps you choose coordinating card stock and accessories, like brads.

This month I designed the card sketch for Craft Project Central using Stampin' Up's My Digital Studio. I hope this will inspire you. Here's a FREE Sketch Mini Tutorial that has information about how the inspiration card (using the sketch) was created, supplies used, and basic measurements. You should play along too. Each week the project designers will pick their top two favorite entries. At the end of the month five random winners are chosen from the eight favorites, and the winners will receive a FREE subscription to the month of their choice on Craft Project Central. Instead of just one winner every month, there are going to be five!
