Valentine Bullseye

I have finally found some time to play with some of my new "toys" today.  I tested out my new Xyron machine. It's pretty cool and will come in handy for my son's birthday party next month.  :-)  I did try out one new stamp I got from Michael's $1.50 bin.  It was a part of the purchase using one of my gift cards.  Sometimes you can find some great things in those bins.

Anyway, I made a set of three cards for this weeks Less Is More challenge.  Its a one layer card week and the theme is hearts.  I'm also going to link this up to the One Layer Simplicity challenge (formerly known as One-Layer Wednesday).  The theme is restocking the shelves, so make a card to refill your depleted stores.  Well, mine are pretty thin right now and since Valentine's day is coming up, I might as well get some done!  :-)  I'm also linking up to Addicted To Stamps and More.  Their theme is "Holiday" and that can be any kind of holiday.  Okay, so here's my cards...

So, I went super simple this time.  I took my bullseye stamp and stamp with versamark ink on a white card base.  I used some embossing powders and presto!  The embossing powders are as follows:  Wintergreen by Stamp-n-Stuff, Pearlized Amethyst and Pearlized Carnelian by Stampendous.  Really CAS but I like them.  I wanted to try some less traditional colours too.

Well, that's it for me.  Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a lovely day!
