Happy Valentine’s Day! Just a quick post to send some love your way. I have been creating Valentine’s cards to send to family and friends for a few weeks. One thing I often do is forget to mail them but this year I got them out on time. Success!
This card showcases one of the fun patterns on the From My Heart DSP. The small hearts are foiled so there is a beautiful shimmer to the hearts. The large heart is from Stampin’ Up’s Stitched Be Mine Dies.
The sentiments are from the Simon Says Stamp Love & Valentines Word Mix 2 stamp set and coordinating die. This set has so many sentiments that are stamped at once and then cut out with the single die. LOVE this set.
This card uses another pattern of the DSP and another sentiment from the same stamp set.
I am gradually getting my Valentine cards created. This card was inspired by a sketch by Mary Fish over at Stampin’ Pretty.
I needed a bit of inspiration and the sketch did the trick. The card base is a standard 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. The DSP is retired SU Garden Impressions. The heart was cut from Calypso Coral cards stock using the SU Stitched Be Mine dies then mounted on the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. This allowed the stacked banners to slip under the heart.
The sentiment is from Concord & 9th’s Pretty Poppy stamp set. I love the font and it pops stamped with Altenew Obsidian pigment ink. The bow was added using retired SU ribbon. And the final touch are the three hearts cut from the Stitched Be Mine dies in SU Sparkle Glimmer Paper.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are inspired to be crafty today.
Each year Christmas Eve brings so forth so many memories. Excitement as a child with the anticipation of Santa’s arrival, celebrations with family as we went to mass and came home to enjoy champagne appetizers and gift opening, and then the birth of our first son.
Our son’s birth was not anticipated as he came three months early. I can recall like it was yesterday leaving the hospital on Christmas night passing the beautiful decorations that lined the hospital drive – without him with us. We had a priest come to the hospital to christen him on Christmas Day; and experienced our own Christmas miracle as Conor responded well to the jet ventilator. Today we celebrate his 26th birthday!
This fun shaker card features Honey Bee Designs Happy Birthday Stamp and coordinating Honey Cuts. My order came in this adorable buffalo plaid paper bag. I could not resist using it for this special birthday card. I just love the result. Thank you Honey Bee Stamps for the beautiful packaging.
The inside message is from the new Stampin’ Up! Sending You Thoughts Sale–Bration stamp set.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas as we celebrate Jesus’ birth.
