Valentine Inspiration with Alicia!

Good morning Quick Quotes readers, Alicia blogging today. I created a couple of non traditional Valentine's cards with the latest Quick Quotes papers Spring Showers and Navigator. 

I loved the print on this Spring Showers paper and wanted to feature as much as possible but with a twist. I chose to layer it on a step card. I stamped the sentiment with Terra Cotta PowderPuff Chalking Ink and fussy cut.  To finish this card I added some ribbon and pearls.

Here's a close up of the printed paper. I love the effect from consecutive pieces of the print separated by only a sliver of white card stock chalked heavily with more Terra Cotta.

My second card is more masculine.  I thought of giving this one to my son for Valentine's.  I just love the harlequin pattern.  I accented it with a harlequin die cut.  
I used the brand new 2018 Capri Blue PowderPuff Chalking Ink to ink the white card stock under the die cut area.  I stamped the sentiment and inked all the edges with the same color.  

I added some sequins and a ribbon to finish off this card.

Beautiful cards. I love the way you die cut some of the harlequins out - such a great idea!
