The theme for February's card swap was Valentines. Here is the card I sent to Janice.

The lovely Sacha Van de Kerkhof recently uploaded a YouTube tutorial showing how to make this beautiful card using the Avant Garden Stamp set. You can see the video here This stamp set is available as a freebie until the end of March when you spend £45 on Stampin' Up! Goodies.
I fell in love with the card immediately. The colours are all of my favourites but I also the loved the way the stencil was used to create an almost ombre effect.
As I hadn't used the Avant Garden stamp set it seemed the perfect opportunity to Case Sacha's card. Here are the two I came up with.
Both slightly different from Sacha's and I'm not really sure which I prefer. What do you think? Do you have a favourite, please leave me a comment below, I'd love to know what you think.

We have a new baby in the family so I just had to make a special card and also a box for the little romper suit I bought for him.
It was a great excuse to use the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and matching punch again. I also used the new Any Occasion stamp set for both the sentiments.
I always enjoy making boxes and this one was no different.
You've got to have a matching tag so here's mine.
And finally a close up of the card which I decorated inside as well.
Many congratualations Jasmine and Rich on the birth of Benjamin, Congratulations to the Grandparents, Karen and Brian and also to the GreatGrandma, Kate.

I also used my Wink of Stella pen on the hearts down the side to make them all sparkly.

Regular readers of my blog may recognise the design as it is similar to one I made for the Blog Hop I took part in recently. This is made in Watermelon Wonder which is a lovely pinky / peachy colour, one of the colours from the 15-17 In Colours.
This is the card I received from Jane Carroll. I love it.
