New toys - full of love!

I am having so much fun playing with some new toys! I ordered the letter press plate Lots of Love during the pre-order period for the Holiday mini and just opened it. What was I waiting for?????

This is using it on card stock without any ink. This will make a nice background on a card.

This is a masculine valentine using the letter press and the Filled With Love stamp set. The Filled With Love stamp set is part of a promotion that ends 1/24/11. Check it out at Stampin Up. I pulled out the color coach for the accent color. I like the burst of More Mustard :-)

Card Stock: Bravo Burgundy, Crumb Cake, More Mustard.
Ink: Whisper White, Bravo Burgundy
Stamp Set: Filled With Love

This was an experiment. When I embossed the Pretty in Pink I put a piece of the white lightweight cardboard in the layers. The cardboard got embossed too - so I used the brayer to add some Pretty in Pink, Sahara Sand and Always Artichoke. The color coach gave me the idea of the Sahara Sand and Always Artichoke with the pinks.
Card Stock: Sahara Sand, Melon Mambo, Always Artichoke, Pink Pirouette
Ink: Always Artichoke, Sahara Sand, Pretty in Pink
Stamp Set: Punch Potpourri
Crochet Trim

For this one, I used Classic ink with the letter press. I like the way it looks.

Trim: Always Artichoke seam binding, Pretty in Pink 1/4 grosgrain ribbon

This is another using the Filled With Love stamp set. I had the flower in my scrap pile. It was from a day when I was playing with vellum. I used the embosslit and cut flowers from vellum paper and Pink Pirouette card stock. I used some Pretty in Pink ink and daubed it around the edges of the vellum. Layered them with the vellum on top and added a pearl.
Card Stock : Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Vellum paper, Bordering Blue (retired)

More Filled With Love. This one uses the stamp set and the DSP from the Filled With Live promotion. I also used the red glitter paper from the Mini Occasions Catalog. How neat is that - all the bling of glitter without the mess. I love it!
