It's A Mod Squad Valentine Challenge!!!

It's time for another Mod Squad Challenge!!!!  And with the time of year.....I just bet you can guess what the challenge may be!!!!   ;)   But wait....it's TWOFER challenge....so there are 2 parts to it!!!  Don't panic...I promise they are both simple.....and fun!!!

From Millan.Net From Millan.Net

Ok....now guess!!!  LOL  Right.....because Valentine's Day is right around the corner this week's challenge is to use at least one HEART and some GLITTER on your card or project!!  Any type of heart.....an image or an embellishment, etc.  And some glitter!!  After all love is SPARKLY!!!  Any type of glitter....stickles, loose glitter, glitter pen, etc.  I know you all can be super creative with this!!!

Here's mine....

For this card I used the Gina K. Designs stamp set Sent With Love.  I love that little bench!!  I stamped and colored the image and then stamped the sentiment and then did one of my favorite techniques...glittering up the entire panel!  It's super simple to do!  Just press your Versamark pad all over the stamped/colored panel, then sprinkle with an embossing powder glue product...I used Judikins Sticky Stuff.  Tamp off the excess and then heat with heat gun just until shiny.  Then cover in a clear, iridescent  glitter and tamp off the excess.  Voila!!!  That's all there is to it!!!  I used one of my favorite cardstock combinations, Gina K Pure Luxury Cherry Red and Innocent Pink!!  And a cute little bow with Gina K Black Onyx gingham ribbon and a touch of pearls.....I also embossed the white background and an inside panel.  It's already been sent off to a friend!  ;)

Now....since it's the first week of the month....you all know what THAT means, right???!!!!  Yeppers!!!  It's time for the $50 Gina K Designs Gift Certificate Prize!!!!  That's the prize for this week's challenge!!!  Now here are the challenge rules and details.....and then I hope you go get crafty and have fun creating with your HEARTS!!!!  (ok those who know me just KNEW a cheesy pun was coming up sometime!
