Love Always- A SVG Cutting Files Challenge

Hey there Everyone!  There is a new challenge at SVG Cutting Files, this month we have a "Valentine" theme.  Just remember, the project must include something from SVG Cutting Files. Projects should be linked on the blog or Facebook Galleria Group by February 14. As always, there is a great prize up for grabs.

I am using a new SVG Cutting File today called Swirl Heart Tree to make a couple cards.

I'm really liking the water color block stamping effect. It gives that nice watercolor blending of colors.
I used it here with a background mat in pink tones.

For this card, I used traditional red colors. 
This tree is so pretty and elegant. Perfect for so many different projects.

Here's a list of what I used on today's project......

Skatin' by with a winter hi!

Today is my design day over at SVG Cutting Files and today I am sharing a couple winter themed cards. With the holidays just a few days behind us and still a over a month until Valentine's day, there is still plenty of winter fun to celebrate like sledding, hockey and ice Skating.

The first card features a brand new file in the store now called Chili Skating Girl.

She is so cute. With her little heart on her headband this could easily be a valentines card. Just change the sentiment.

The second card is using an older file from the SVG Cutting Files store from the Winter Kids file set.

I tried a new technique on these cards. I used an acrylic block for stamping, I then selected several different colors of ink pads and rubbed them onto the acrylic block. Next I sprayed the block with a fine mist of water and stamped this wet mess onto my paper. What a cool effect, the colors all bleed together to make a watercolor type background. 

I used some dies to cut out the square background before attaching it to my card.
