Valentine’s Day Series – Day 5

By Cards

Happy Friday!

Welcome to Day 5 of my Valentine’s Day Card Series. I hope you all have enjoyed the first week of cards and felt inspired. For today’s card I wanted to attempt a  single layer card. Single layer cards are great in that they are potentially the easiest to send through the mail without having to buy extra postage due to weight or size. I think I came really close but then I felt as if something was missing and added the dimensional heart. Luckily it is made of a thin felt material and doesn’t have much bulk to it.

Just For You

Heart Stamps : Making Memories – Love Struck

Inking: Ink Blending Tool & Tim Holtz Distress Ink – fire brick

Valentine’s Day – I “Heart” You

By Cards

Hi all,

For today’s card I wanted to come u with a non-traditional route to valentine’s day. I used a slightly different color scheme than the typical valentine’s day card would and added in grays, blues, and greens. The sentiment simply reads I “heart” you. The finished product is an elegant take on Valentine’s Day =).

I Heart You


Card Base: American Crafts Textured Cardstock

Papers: K & Co. and DCWV

Embellishments: Martha Stewart Gemstones, Thickers, K & Co Border Stickers

Heart: Silhouette Studio SVG cut


Thankful Heart – Valentine’s Day Series

By Cards

With All My Heart

Hi all,

Welcome to Day 4 of my Valentine’s Day Card Series. I’m having so much fun experimenting with all my supplies and creating more cards for you each day. I’m really trying to use up my stash with minimal waste. I guess that’s the beauty in card making – you can find inspiration from even the tiniest bit of material. For this card, I wanted to break out some stamps and really concentrate on a CAS (create a sentiment) card. I liked the concept of Valentine’s Day, but I wanted it to also double as a card that could be used any time of year. I think this card suits the bill really well. Telling someone you’re thankful is good to do year round, don’t wait for a special occasion on that!

Thanks so much for stopping by and see you again next time.

2.14 Geometric Shapes – Valentine’s Day Series

By Cards


Hi all,

Today is day 3 of the Valentine’s day card series. For today’s card I wanted to try using some geometric shapes to create the main focal area. I also wanted to test out a few of my circle cutting tools to create these shapes. I used a textured cardstock as the base and added the shapes cut from a My Minds Eye paper stack. I also some felt embellishment from American Crafts and Thickers.
