Casology # 183 and TIME OUT #49

I counted up my valentines yesterday and I don't have nearly enough so I have a couple today that fit two different challenges.  CASology has Glitter for it's word cue and I made this.
It's a PB set stamped in HA India Black and colored with Distress Inks.  No glitter you say?  Just you look.
One of the extras that Catherine Pooler put in her #Stamp of Approval box was a wonderful Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen.  Watch out WOS.  This one really glitters.

I could not put that pen down so I tried it on colored cs for my entry into the TIME OUT challenge - "Love is a flower you've go to let grow".  You can use all or any part of that sentence and I think I have the stamp that covers it all.
Doesn't that look just like love flowers growing?  I used this stamp before in black with red Stickles. Here I white embossed the 'plant' and filled in the hearts with the SN Clear Sparkle pen.  You can get a little glimpse of it in this close-up. It looks like red glitter IRL.
Now that I have these posted, I'm off to a Super Bowl party dressed in orange and blue.

  8. I love your valentines - especially the first one -- no maybe the second one is the one I think is best - but maybe that first one is the best design - no - it just has to be the red and white one. I just love red and white together!

  11. Those hearts are so cool and groovy, Bobby ... such a great retro feel ... and awesome sparkle from that Spectrum Noir pen (wish list just took another hit!!). Your heart vines are gorgeous ... delicious crisp white amid the bold red ... and the shimmer ... so yum-my! Delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out, my friend! Hugs, Anita :)

  14. Wow, that pen can really give the WOS a run for its money!! I find it so hard to capture the shimmer of WOS in a photo but you can definitely see it on your cards. Might have to look into this one...... Your 'love grows' card couldn't be more perfect for our challenge and I love the detail of the stamp, with it also being a CAS design. We are always so happy to see you at TIME OUT and hope you had enough Valentines cards in the end!!
