Easy Valentines ft. Milk & Cookies w/Kelly

Hello Crafters!
Ohio is still freezing but at least we are in the double digits again. Never thought I'd be so grateful for 22 degrees ha!
Since this cold is keeping me cooped up in my craft room - it's a hardship, I know - I have multiple cards for you again!

I love using older stamps and dies with a more modern spin don't you? I decided to get out the Milk & Cookies set and get to work.

I combined them with a super soft ink blended background. To add some charm to the background I spattered on some Shimmer Spray and then stamped the Just Geometrics: Triangles in the background. I love the contrast of soft colors with the harder edged graphic look of the triangles.

I went with pretty traditional cookies and milk for this card. The "picto-gram" feel adds some interest as does the pop of color from that bright red heart label.

This one is a bit less traditional but it combines my son's favorites, chocolate milk and vanilla cookies. I added a shadow to ground the images and a glittery flag for some fun.
You can watch cards from start to finish in the video below:

I'm so glad I added those highlights at the last minute. I think little details like that really help make a simple card design look "extra".

I went pretty traditional for both cards, but as I said in the video, they are selling all different kinds of Oreos and flavors now-a-days. Personally, I'm a double stuffed girl for sure, which one is your favorite?
Thanks so much for dropping in!
