Love You .....

Today's card has been inspired by two challenges....Time out and Just Us Girls
Time Out is asking us to CASE My dear friend Michele's card.....
I cannot begin to think I have done her card Justice, as she is a creative genius.


Dies only - no stamping
Shades of one colour mine is green
Sprigs/leaves - No Blooms
Central die cut shape
Tucking my shapes/leaves under the heart and through the mini die cut heart
This is Michele's fabulous card to CASE..........

Putting my own twist to the card I have used some of the die cuts as stencils
and embossing paste behind the die cut leaves and shapes
I have loved combining the two challenges 
and I have loved CASEing Michele's card.............
Thank you for stopping by as I really appreciate it.
Stay warm and safe as there's another storm coming our way.......

Thank you so much Just Us Girls for The Shout Out, Which I really appreciate x.

Oh my this is so soft and delicate looking Mac! I just LOVE how you've got those die cut flower stems through the smaller heart inside the larger one! The colors and the clean style make it so elegant! Nicely done!

Beautiful Mac, I love your soft muted tones and those amazing die cutes. Awesome take on Michele's card.

Drooling over your interpretation of the challenges Mac - Shhh, but I think I love this card more than Michelle's. The stencilling and and subtle dimension behind the die cuts is genius.
Stay safe

Oh. My. Goodness!!! Mac! You have aced it!
I adore the little die-cut heart space to tuck a few of these delicate/delicately colored sprigs through! You've upped the ante with that lovely bit of stenciling!
The soft greens are a delight for the eye and the thought you've put into it is such a delight for my heart!
Thank you, SO very much for playing along! xx

You definitely have done Micheles card justice, this is just stunning. I just love the dimension and the something extra that you have added with the paste. Great idea to cut a tiny heart out and have the die cuts poking through. such a wonderful softness to it too. Hope you are surviving the weather, we have the full force of Eunice at the moment, the wind is terrifying xx

Jane Harrah said...

Your card is lovely and soft. Much prettier than the card you cased! I just love it.

Brenda in IN said...

Your CASE is just beautiful. I love the white emobssing paste leaves adding dimension and the soft green you used.

Of course you've done it justice! your card is beautiful! Loving the techniques used and the gorgeous soft colours. I'm thinking about you and hoping the weather isn't too bad. We had loads of rain last night and it's quite windy now but so far we're doing okay, no power cuts yet. Take care and have a lovely peaceful weekend. Hugs, Angela xXx

WOW!!, what a stylish and a very elegant card Mac, it's stunning, beautifully designed and I love the dies you've used and that soft muted shade of colour. Your friends card is gorgeous too. Stay safe, Kate x

Jeanne H said...

You are genius too. I look forward to all your posts and am envious. Love this card...so soft and pretty.

Susan said...

This is so beautiful! I love the soft colours, the bit of stencilling, the perfect arrangement of leafy branches. Also it's great to see a Valentine that isn't red or pink!

Cathy said...

This is a stunner Mac! Love how you arranged the foliage through the smaller heart, genius move! The colours are soft and match the delicate stems perfectly. Also genius to use the diecuts as a stencil for some added depth and greenery, will be trying to CASE your card one day! Cathy x

I think you did Michelle’s card justice with this beauty, Mac! The pastel green colour is so soft and pretty. The design and details are fabulous as always.

Brenda said...

Michele is indeed a creative genius but so are you Mac! You have done her card justice with your CAS, your CAS is just gorgeous! I love the green color, the embossing paste images and the way you tucked your greens through the heart. Both you women are amazing and both are creative geniuses! I just love both of your cards!!! Hugs, Brenda

Bonnie said...

What a wonderful CASE of Michele's beautiful card, Mac! You have made it your own with the soft green shades and the stenciled leaves in the background! A brilliant idea to cut a small heart in the bigger one to tuck the stems into! Now I want to CASE your card too!

Pat said...

This is gorgeous Mac and a brilliant CASEing of Michele's beautiful card. I love the muted green tones and the soft look of the stencilled texture just in the background, and the way you have used the die cut flowers tucked behind and also through the little heart aperture..such a clever idea, and the 'love' looks great on the side and with another tiny heart..so sweet. x

Papercraft Boutique said...

Wow, this is such a wonderful CASEing of Michele's card, Mac! I LOve the soft green shades and the leaves stenciled with embossing paste! And what a great idea to tuck the stems into the heat-shaped vase-like hole! All white elements make the green look so soothing.

You just keep on making beautiful card so we can drool over them Mac. I love the soft stencilled background and again with softness on your fabulous die combination. You certainly have done justice to Michels's card in every way especially how you finished it with the heart die and where you place those dies. Love how you have just a hint of colour different to all the rest. Of course it's another winner for me.

Bo┼╝enA said...

A brilliantly created card. I love how you added a little pattern to the background with the templates you created. It harmonizes beautifully with the rest of the elements. I love the color chosen by you, delicate and pastel, not overbearing and creating a beautiful aura for sending the card. Amazing project, Mac. The rules are kept, but the card has sailed towards you. Once again, your creativity took us high up!

Beautiful cards.

Leslie Miller said...

Your dies are so cute! Love the soft green and the very effective layer of stencil paste. Pretty how you've tucked the stems into the cut out heart. You've done Michele proud!

Loll said...

STUNNING card, my friend! I LOVE your design with the leaves coming through the heart. The soft greens are so fresh with white. And the texture from the embossed paste in the background is fabulous. Always inspired by you, my sweet friend! xx

Cat Craig said...

You've definitely done Michele proud. What a serene and lovely take on her project. Beautiful

Amazing and gorgeous! Love the soft layers and the sprigs coming through the mini heart -- plus the added texture of using your dies for stencils

Darnell said...

As a creative genius yourself, you have given Michele high (and well-deserved) praise, Mac, and I love how you have CASE'd her beautiful card with one of your own! I would buy that heart planter filled with graceful leaves! Wow! Hugs, Darnell
