Kiss kiss, i love u

Hi there folks!  I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas.  Sorry I've been missing in action here on my blog but right before Christmas I came down with the flu.  Yes, yuck!  Not fun being sick all through the holiday.  I'm still coughing and blowing but I wanted to take a few minutes to post two cards that I created for the Mama Elephant Challenge for this month which is to create a Valentine card.  Yep I know what you're thinking, Valentine's already? but as a card maker it's never too early to start crafting ahead for the next holiday.
 The first card that I created is a shaker card using the adorable Mama Elephant stamp set Pandamonium.  I started out with a white card base and then added a red die cut and embossed scalloped panel using the Mama Elephant Creative Cuts basic set and a polka dot embossing folder.  For the scallop heart cutout to create my shaker, I used the Papertrey Ink shakers & sprinkles heart die.  I added a little Copic marker shading and pink cheeks to my kissing pandas before I filled my shaker with silver and red sequins and red and pink hearts.  This card was so fun to make that I can see myself making more of these.
 My second Valentine card, I used the same Pandamonium stamp set along with another Mama Elephant set Party Kit.  The little panda was stamped, colored and die cut, then popped up on a white die cut panel that I had stamped the three heart balloons and streamers.  The sentiment was stamped in black ink onto a pink banner and added on top of the die cut green hill and for some added detail I glued on a few clear iridescent sequins.  

That's it for me today.  Thank you for your visit!
