>Valentine’s Cards

Standard

>It’s a wintery snowy day here in central Illinois and a perfect day to stay in and work on some projects I have been wanting to get done. Thought I would share my valentine card creations.

This card is inspired by Robyn at My Pink Stamper

This card is one of my creations, simple and not too fussy. Used waxy flax wrapped around the card and tied a chipboard heart to center.

These cards are inspired by Ruthie. I used the layout but changed the octopus out with hearts and “love” letters. The love letters is a block stamp which I embossed with red tinsel embossing powder then cut the letters out and popped them out with pop dots. The red hearts are cut from the Doodlecharms cartridge. All of the patterned paper is K&Co valentine stack.
Thanks so much for looking.

>Sketch Book

>HI everyone. Hope your are having a great week so far. As I was browsing thru some of my fav scrapbooking sites, I came across this post about a sketchbook idea. Then that lead me to Kristina Werner. I luv her website. She always has the most awesome ideas and is very talented. She also provides the template for the inside of your sketch book. Thanks Kristina! I used CTMH “Good Times” pp. Accent essentials cricut cartridge for the circles and calligraphy cart for the letters. The lil tag I drew and cut out of the same cs I used for the letters then used some letter stickers. Attached it with a gem brad. I used kraft cs to punch out the quotation markers with a TPS punch and tied some ribbon onto those. That’s it. Now I have one area to do my sketches instead of having papers scattered everywhere or in every different notebook I own. If anyone has made one of these or are planning on making one, I would luv to see your finished project.
Thanks for looking today!
Until next time,

>**Cps Card Sketch #180**

Standard

>HI friends, I am entering this card for the CPS card sketch this week. I was having a heck of a time getting a half way decent picture. Everyone I took showed the card as having a yellow background. It’s actually a brighter green than the picture shows. The flower is made from the same border sticker that’s at the bottom of the card. I cut the scalloped border into five pieces and arranged them on a piece of CS and cut it out then just used black CS for the center using a 1″ circle punch and adding a jumbo brad. The sticker borders and brad are Making Memories. I luv the colors in this card. I also used CTMH glitter glue on the scallop and flower but it’s hard to see in the picture. I am wishing now that I used some gems instead of the glitter glue. Oh well live and learn. I have been enjoying looking at all the wonderful creations. I said it before but it’s just amazes me what beautiful cards you ladies come up with.
Have a great day!
