Southwest Valentines

Ok, as promised in my last post...  My 4 Southwest Valentine Cards.... The stamps are from Crafty Clear Stamps (Craft Lounge) named Wanted.

Paper is by We R Memory Keepers and this particular patter (double sided) is called Fiesta Rubia.  Very cool pattern!  I used a corner punch that I've had forever!  It's called Southwest, at least it was when I bought it.  That's brown cording from the jewelry section of the big discount store.

I used decorative scissors to cut the pattern piece and used brown raffia on this card.

I got out my Wizard and the Spellbinders Nestie Label 11 die for the phrase piece.  And that's jute tied on the top of the card.

And the last card...  I punched a 3" scalloped oval to do the partial spirelli technique using twine from The Twinery.  Oh, the scallop border is made with the Fiskars Treading Water border punch.  I used Copic markers and PrismaColor pencils for coloring. 

Aren't these a hoot! I like it when I can make multiple cards for a class using just one stamp set in various ways.  The "students" purchased every set the store had! Now I need to make my own cards!!
