We Belong Together, A Heart Card in Hot Pink

I look at this lovely Sketch from Freshly Made Sketches#273, and I love to make a card with this sketch.

I must tell you I never invest or buy stamp special for Valentine cards..thats Why I dont have a special Valentine or heart stamps...I took this tiny Heart stamp from TAWS True Colors set, and started to stamp on a watercolor paper:

After that I took my Peerless Transparent Watercolor (the top part of the two colors I showed you here) and colored the white area on the stamped Image. I also used the white pen to give accent to each heart.

Here is the finish card I made with that selfmade HEART paper.

As I have a boo booo area under the main panel, I took a strip of pink paper and stamped my sentiment there and adhere that pink paper under the main panel.

Challenges for my card are:

A perfect Time to Craft Challenge#2: Anything Goes

HLS February Watercolour Challenge:

Creative Corner Challenges: Perfectly Pink

NBUS Challenge #10 The sentiment was bought last year and stay on my drawer and never been used this is his debut then :) 

Stamplorations February CAS Challenge: I used the hot Pink on my card

Uniko Challenge: January Anything Goes with an Optional Twist of Love



I also made this card for Hubby, its not easy to make a valentine card without PINK and RED colors...hubby love Blue color...also here is what I can think at the moment...if I think its not so good for him I can still make once more LOL..

It was not easy to think which Image is better for manly valentine card...I thik of truck full with heart but then it should be red there on the colors of heart...then I think to drew Heart and colored it with blue (oops if you want to know I have no DIES or Special Heart stamp for I told above :)) but Blue heart looks like a sad card...also change all my mind...

And I found this..hubby loves COFFEE (I like hot choco and tea) also I stamped first the sentiment and embossed it with black embossing powder, then Stamped the Coffee Mug from Create A Smile stamp set with light blue ink.

Again I colored with Peerless Transparent Watercolors, and choose two different shade of blue.

For CAS challenge I dont think I need more decoration on my white card stock, also I only embossed it with embossing folder from We R Memory. (Geometric)

Challenges for my SECOND card are:

  20. Hello namesake,

    All the cards are very lovely. I like how you covered a booboo on the first card and the coffee cards are awesome.

    I have been away to Thailand so could not blog...

    Lots of love,


  21. Oh this is so pretty Monika, love it! And you're so clever to create such a beautiful paper yourself. Thanks for playing along at Uniko.

  22. I don't invest in valentines supplies either, but I've got a few hearts and dome smaller stamps bought for the other stamps that are part of a set. But hearts I can use for wedding cards etc too. But with limited supplies comes creativity to you, look how fantastic that own made pink and red panel turned out! And the coffee card, super for a male, and lovectgst cool embossed pattern!

  23. Lovely card, thanks for sharing at Digistamps4joy!

  24. Your self made paper is fantastic! Glad you joined us this week at FMS!

  25. These are both gorgeous creations Monika!! I especially LOVE your hot pink card with the hearts and split panels!! Really eye catching and stunning! :) Thanks for sharing your creation with us at STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge! Hugs & Smiles - *Vicki*-guest designer

  26. 2 fantastic cards here Monika and I'm afraid I can't pick a favourite as they are both so stunning. Love the red hot valentine pinks and reds but totally love the non-conventional colour way for the occasion and those embossing folders are just awesome aren't they? So much detail and a fun element to the card. Great to see you playing along at Uniko and HLS CAS challenge this week. Sarah

  27. Two gorgeous cards Monika! I love all of the hot pink on your first card and WOW I love that embossing folder on your second card!
    Hugs, Tammy

  28. I love the three panel heart card. I love the colors, the whole look is awesome. The second card for your hubby is wonderful, awesome and very creative. Who says you have to use red. This is perfect. Even if you just drew a red heart on the coffee cup if you felt it needed it would be perfect. I think he's going to love this. I love the embossing geometric on that card. Where did you get it??????? I see these as winners. Hug my friend.

  29. Two fabulous designs. Love the colours of the three panel heart card, and the fabulous embossed panel behind the coffee card.

    Thank you so much for joining in with my Love, Love, Love challenge this time.
