Soft Valentine from a Friend!

Sometimes I receive lovely cards in the mail, and today I want to share one with you!  This card was made by my friend and downline, Su Mohr!

Su is a master at using designer series paper, and you can tell by the way she’s used it on this card.

The die cut “love” is from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.  I “love” the Blushing Bride card stock she’s used here.  So sweet!

Thank you, Su, for the wonderful Valentine!

Hearts of Gold!

Love R

What a clean and simple Valentine!  I made this when a few of us got together and my friend Linda brought this as a make and take.  I fell in love!  🙂

Love standing L

It’s not hard to make.  The word “love” is die cut from Gold Foil using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.  It is attached to the Whisper White panel using Dimensionals.

Love standing

Three different heart stamps from various sets were heat embossed in gold, as was the tiny word “you.”

And a pretty red heart finishes off this card.  Don’t you love it?  Shhh…don’t tell my husband, but this is going to be his Valentine card from me!!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have fun making your Valentines!

Black & White Valentine (and a little pink)!

Striped V L cu

Black and white stripes ~ who doesn’t love them?  Kate Spade, right?  Well, they sure make for a darling clean and simple Valentine!

Striped V standing

The Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper is all you need to create today’s card.

Striped V envie

A piece of the black and white striped paper from the set is placed on the card base.  Then I punched a heart from one of the pink papers, using the heart punch.

Striped V R

A 1/2″ strip of another one of the papers was folded arbitrarily to create a whimsical little shelf for the heart to sit on!  A cute baker’s twine bow finishes it off.

Striped V standing cu

On the inside of the card, and the envelope, I stamped a strip of tiny hearts to add some detail.

Sweet Valentine!

Sweet envie

Sweet Valentine ~ this is the type of Valentine I like.  I have lots of good girlfriends, and some Valentine cards are just goofy and not right at all for them.  But Valentines like this are perfect!

Sweet envie L

The die cut word “sweet” is ~ surprisingly ~ from the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits.  Don’t tell anyone, but I really bought this set of dies just for this word!! 🙂

Sweet standing

For a sweet Valentine, you’ve got to use a heart punch and some red and white paper, right?

Sweet envie R

Do you see the darling little heart flourish?  It’s one of the 27 (did you see that, 27!!!) stamps in the Sealed With Love stamp set.  It’s just so cute, I used it on the envelope too!

Thank you for stopping by today to see this sweet Valentine!

Ladybugs!!

Ladybugs flat L

I love ladybugs!  They are the only bug I like.  Well, maybe I like the bee ~ but just from a distance 🙂  Anyway, these two ladybugs are so cute and they are perfect for Valentine’s Day!

Ladybugs standing

The ladybugs and the sweet sentiment are from a Host Stamp Set called Love You Lots.  A Host Stamp Set is one you can only buy if you are a Host of a class or party and you can only purchase them with Stampin’ Rewards.  You earn Stampin’ Rewards when you have a class or party with sales of $150 or more.

Ladybugs R

The ladybugs were stamped in Black Archival Ink and colored in with a Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker.

Ladybugs flat RDo you see how I used the pretty Sending Love Designer Series Paper?  The circle that is framing the ladybugs was cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits (as was the Whisper White circle).  A strip of the dsp was folded arbitrarily and layered under the circles.

Ladybugs L

To finish off the card I splattered some Real Red Ink.  This is a happy Valentine card!  You could also give it to your spouse for an anniversary!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

From the Heart Blog Hop!

2017badge-flamingo

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for January 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month our projects showcase themes that are “from the heart.” This includes any of the following themes… Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, Get Well and/or Sympathy. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

Hop envieSometimes we just need a fancy Valentine.  Whether you want to give someone a fancy Valentine or you want to receive one…  And, if you need a fancy Valentine today, then this is for you 🙂

Hop cu RThe star element of this card is the 3-D heart!  It’s super-easy to make.  I cut 5 hearts using the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies. Each heart was stamped, both on the front and the back, with a flourish stamp from the Falling Flowers stamp set.  The stamping puts patterns on the hearts which coordinate with the background designer series paper.

Hop flat

Each heart was then folded in half and the sides glued together.  I love the result!

Hop cu L

The pretty Lace Doily is new in the 2017 Occasions Catalog.  These doilies are Whisper White on one side and Very Vanilla on the other side.  How versatile is that?  For my card I used the Very Vanilla side to go with the Very Vanilla card base.

Hop standing

Behind the doily is a circle punched from Calypso Coral card stock.  This highlights both the doily and the heart!  The Calypso Coral frame was created using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

The Striped Scallop Thinlits Die makes a pretty lattice.  For this card, I cut the lattice from Whisper White card stock and sponged it with Blushing Bride ink.

Valentine Rose!

Rose cu

Hearts and roses ~ what could speak more of love?  The rose is made from the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies.  Isn’t it pretty?  It’s almost like a stencil, it’s just an outline of a full rose 🙂

Rose 1

The background behind the rose is watercolored in a light Rose Red shade to show off the rose die.  Layered behind that is some sweet paper from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack.
