Non-Traditional Valentine’s Day Cards

By Cards

Hi All,

Today I have some non-traditional Valentine’s day cards to share with you. Most of the supplies are from the November 2013 Simon Says Stamp card kit. I have been subscribed to these kits for quite some time and find them to be jam packed with products that coordinate and are at times custom designed.

For these cards I wanted to try some colors and prints that aren’t common for Valentine’s Day. Here are 3 combinations I came up with and I still have a large amount of material leftover from the kits to continue working with.

Card 1: Bright colors on a neutral background with a little twine to bring it all together. Love it.


Card 2: Stitched embellishments are always fun.


Card 3: Banner card on cork background – yes please!


What do you think of these color schemes? Are you a fan of going adventurous  do you prefer the traditional route?

Valentine’s Day Series – Day 9

By Cards

Hi all,

For day’s card my goal was to keep the card clean and simple using a single mat. I created this card using a stamped image with Stampin’ Up ink and then brought in Distress Ink in fire brick red with an ink blending tool. It’s small in stature but packs a punch!

Here it is:

Inked Heart


Card Base: Neenah Environmental Cardstock – Desert Storm

Paper: NeenahSolar White

Stamp: Making Memories – Love Struck

Inks: Stampin’ Up in Bravo Burgundy and Tim Holtz Distress Ink in  Fire Brick red

White Stitching: Uniball Signo Broad White gel pen


Valentine’s Day Series – Day 8

By Cards

Hi All,

For today’s card I wanted to try using my Martha Stewart Circle Cutter to come up with an embellishment that would be the focal point of the entire card. I found a great sentiment stamp that came with my Simon Says Stamp card kit for January 2013 that worked great for the circle. Here is the finished product.

You're Very Special


Card Base: Bazzill Night Mist Cardstock

Paper: My Minds Eye – Love me collection

Washi Tape -Crafty Basics

Gold Embossing – Martha Stewart Embossing Glitter

Circle Cutter: Martha Stewart Circle Cutter

Circle Punch: EK Success 1″ circle punch

White Stitching: Uniball Signo Broad gel pen


Damask Embossed Card with Felt Flowers – Valentine’s Day Card Series

By Cards

Two Hearts

Hi all!

Welcome to Day 2 of the Valentine’s Day series. For today’s card, I wanted to create a matching set to the card I created yesterday. I think the damask “tone on tone” image adds a certain elegance to the card. In my opinion, the picture really doesn’t do the card enough justice. The embossing of the cardstock completely adds dimension without adding bulk. For the embellishment, I used some felt stitched hearts and rhinestones.

This card will be available on etsy for purchase. Feel free to check out the store for other products as well.
