OK, These are my sneak peeks :):)

I used Multi Step Cup of Warm Comfort to create this valentine theme card. Definitely my kind of set, lol. The set is including nice coordinated sentiments and I used one of them inside of the card as well :)

These are the steps I did for each image (all inks are Memento) :
(hot chocolate)
4th - rich cocoa, 3rd - dessert sand, 2nd - angel pink, 1st - angel pink (1 x stamp off), repeat 1st step














The scene for the card was created using already-popular-set, Multi Step Owl & Autumn Moon and new mini set, Friends of the Moon. Not only Friends of the Moon is used by itself, but it is also wonderful addition for Owl & Autumn set! For the sentiment of the card, I used another new mini set, Simple Sentiment. I found this wonderful sketch from SCS Sketch challenge 261 (SC261).


These are the steps I did for each image (all inks are Memento) :
(Moon) 1st - dandelion, 2nd - cantaloupe
, 3rd - cantaloupe, repeat 3rd step



At last but not least, this beautiful winter bird image is from Multi Step Winter Cardinals. Isn't she (or maybe he) beautiful? Cardinals are one of the famous winter bird and I'm so excited when Maria added them to her cupboard! I step stamped the bird, then went back to step 1 and stamped with VersaMark on the image and heat embossed with clear EP. Next I step stamped the pines. The background was sponged with Memento cantaloupe and summer sky.
Again, the sentiment was stamped with Simple Sentiment mini set. I also used the sketch from another SCS Sketch challenge (SC260).

These are the steps I did for each image:
(cardinal) 1st - Memento angel pink, 2nd - Memento lady bug (1 x stamp off)
, repeat 2nd step, 3rd - lady bug, 4th - SU bravo burgundy (1 x stamp off), repeat 4th step
