I Like "U" a Latte & TECC3

These are a couple of the cards I made for Valentine's Day. I originally made the first one to send to one of my "Starbucks Addicted" friends, but I made a different one for her and ended up sending this one to my Mom & Dad. I don't own the SU! set; Like it a Latte, so a couple of wonderful ladies from SCS sent me the images. I got the idea to turn the "it" into a "U" from my friend Kendra. The cardstock colors are Real Red and Chocolate Chip and the Chocolate Chip layer is embossed with the Cuttlebug d'vine Swirl folder. It's hard to see in the photo, but I distressed the white cardstock with my Tim Holtz Paper Distresser. I pierced around the scallop and traced them with my Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll Pen. I used Liquid Applique for the foam and popped the heart up with a dimensional. I made the second card for one of Taylor's Cupcake Challenges. The challenge was to make a card using this sketch. I made mine vertical instead of horizontal. The "Sweet" stamp is from the My Favorite Things set, Be Mine. This was the card that I ended up sending my friend. The carstock colors are Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose. The red layer is embossed with the Cuttlebug Heart Blocks folder. Speaking of the Cuttlebug; don't you just LOVE their new embossing folders??? My favorite is the Swiss Dots folder (if I HAD to choose...LOL). I have 4 of the new ones right now and hope to get my hands on the rest of them...LOL!!! I hope everyone has a great evening.
