Happy Gal-in-times Day!

 Happy Valentines Day, my friends... I only have one true valentine who will receive his card tomorrow.  But if a girl ever needs a friend - a gal-in-times of need is so appreciated!  I'm unofficially taking over this day for those friends!

This card's for all of you... all the gals that offer a shoulder, an ear, a caring heart, and more support than I could ever hope for... I'm sending ...


and since it was made with an Artplorations Old Rose Prints stencil, then heat embossed with UT clear embossing powder, I'm also sending it over to the 

CAS Mix Up Challenge!


Here is a little closeup of that fabulous shine:


What's a girl to do with those MFT die-cut letters?  Make another you say? oh, okay... it's a nice day for a white wedding card!


This time I pressed my versamark pad over the stencil, onto vellum, 
and white heat embossed those Roses.  I may go back and fill that O with pearls!
What do you think?

=]  Michele

Edited to send one of these over to the Love Vibe Challenge at Stamplorations!!  Maybe two?

OOOOOH! Girl, you will always be my Gal-entine, too. And you made those gorgeous, dimensional roses in my color...swoon. It's beautiful and the wedding card is just ast pretty...pearls or not (can't decide).

You are SO clever...these are gorgeous!

They are both just beautiful and it is so nice to see you in the CAS Mix Up gallery. The little pop of red is the perfect finishing touch on your first card. How did you manage to heat emboss the vellum without it warping terribly? No don't fill the O, but if the pearls are small perhaps a few in the bottom, but really the card is perfect as it is xx

Wowie! Two ahhh-mazing cards, Michele! I do so love the all white, but the yellow with the heart in the "love" has stolen transported me completely! What a treat to see this in our CAS Mix Up challenge!

Beautiful cards! I think pearls in the 'O' would look great, Jo x

The yellow roses are so shiny and pretty, Michele! I think yellow is my favorite color of roses. The clean die-cut LOVE makes a wonderful contrast to the lively rose background. The little heart in "O" is so pretty.
The white on white wedding love card is elegant and beautiful. I love that you tilted "O" a little. Wonderful design with or without pearls. Happy Gal-in-times Day, my friend!

Gorgeous rose bouquet, Michele!!! Both cards are beautiful! It would be awesome with some pearls or bling on the wedding card but it's already perfect as it is!

Brenda said...

Wow, I love these cards Michele! The gold/yellow roses for your gal-in-times is stunning. Love the color, the love is perfect as is the pop of red with that heart. These colors are so pretty together! But then there is the wedding card, love, love, love that one too. You are such a clever gal! Hope you had a beautiful Valentine with your honey! Hugs, Brenda

Belated Happy Valentine's Day, Michele! Heaven knows you are a truly great friend and you deserve all the love everyone leaves for you here!!!

Both cards are really gorgeous! I love your yellow roses, especially with all the shine you added to your design! Love your white-on-white wedding card, too...The tilted letter is perfect and I love how your heat embossing adds texture to the roses...so pretty, my friend!

Beautiful!! I love the roses on each card - the heat embossing with stencils is a fabulous look! And your use of the letters on each is so fun and unique.

Two gorgeous cards using the rose stencil, Michele. Love the soft shade of yellow on those roses with the little pop or red from the heart. And the vellum paste and embossed card is beauitful and so elegant with the white on white design. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx

I so love these 2 stencil embossed cards. What glorious texture and beautiful simplicity. Hope you had a happy hearts day. Spent mine at the beach with my guy and 2 dear women friends. We ate chocolate, lobsters and champagne garnished with raspberries and blackberries. Pretty decadent indeed!

Ros Crawford said...
