Valentine's Day Cards

It's almost Valentine's Day and I've been busy stamping hearts. Check out my cards I've made for my January Stamp-a-Stack class.

The first card uses the new Hearts a Flutter stamp set (you can get the bundle (stamp set and framelits) and save money) from the Spring Catalog.  I CASEd this card here.

Supplies:  Riding Hood Red, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla CS; Riding Hood Red ink; Chevron embossing folder, Crumb Cake seam binding.

My next card uses the I Dig You stamp set.  This set was one of the first stamp sets I bought when the new catalog came out in July.  I thought it would be great for scrap booking all of my grandsons' pictures. I was excited when I found a card here that used this set for a Valentine's Card.  I changed it up a bit and I love how it turned out.

Supplies: Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Midnight Muse and Whisper White CS; Daffodil Delight, Midnight Muse and Early Espresso inks; Hearts a Flutter and I Dig You stamp sets.

This card uses the chalkboard technique -- white craft ink on black card stock. A simple idea and so easy. The stamp set is a Sale-a-Bration set Vintage Verses. Don't forget Sale-a-Bration starts January 22 and ends March 22, 2013.

The banners on the side are from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set in the Spring Catalog.  I think this turned out nice - I love red, black and white together!

Supplies:  Real Red, Basic Black and Whisper White card stock, Whisper White craft ink, Real Red and Basic Black ink; Labels Collection framelits and Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder.

This card uses the new More Amore Specialty DSP from the Spring Catalog. I also used the Cannery stamp set and framelits. I love that little mason jar.  This time its filled with little hearts for Valentine's Day.  The hear is from the Create a Cupcake stamp set.

Supplies: Crumb Cake, Pool Party and Very Vanilla card stock; Primrose Petals, Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Basic Black ink; Tiny Tags and Delightful Dozen stamp sets; Pool Party baker's twine and Jewelry Tag punch.

The last card uses the Hearts a Flutter and Wacky Wishes stamp sets.  Simple but cute.  The card says Wishing you a ... Happy Valentine's Day (on the inside).

Supplies: Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo and Whisper White card stock; Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo ink; Chevron embossing folder; Rhinestones.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my Valentine cards,.  Come back soon.

Remainder of Christmas Stamp-a-Stack

It's been so long since I posted on my blog. Life just sometimes gets in the way - LOL!! Anyway, here are pics of the remainder of of Christmas Stamp-a-Stack cards. I hope you enjoy.

This turned out to be one of my favorites.  I CASEd this card here.  Inked the Lacy Brocade embossing folder with crumb cake before embossing the crumb cake card stock to give it that distressed look.

Can't remember where I found the above card so I can't give credit where credit is due ... sorry!

This was such a cute idea of die cutting the Christmas tree in the center of the card and then placing DSP behind it -- I just had to CASE it here.

I LOVE banners so I just had to include them on my Christmas cards.  I got the idea here.

I wanted to try the new Core'dinations card stock.  Very easy to sand and it gives a nice textured look to this card.  I got this idea here.

Thanks for stopping in to check out my blog.  My New Year's resolution is to blog more!!!
