love you...

Hello!!! Hope your week is going well!!  Rosemary here on the blog today with another Valentine.  This one is a little time consuming, but I think worth it in the end.
As I was thinking about what I would make I remembered the beautiful Love Birds die that I got last year and decided that I would use that for my card.  But... what to do... what to do?? I finally settled on the design you see.  I die cut the word multiple times from white cardstock and then three times from a Valentine's day themed patterned paper.   To adhere the words to my white cardstock panel I used spray adhesive.  It works like a charm!   The patterned paper is thinner than the cardstock so I stacked that one three high so it would be the same height as the cardstock words.  Once everything way laid out and adhered I die cut the panel with the largest Stitched Dot Rectangle die.  The "you" is from the Diamond in the Rough stamp set and was stamped in gray ink, trimmed out and adhered with foam dimensionals.  Adhered the panel to a red cardstock base and I was done.  Love how it turned out!  I'm going to add this to the current CASology challenge of cut as it fit perfectly with the challenge!

Sew In Love

Hello everyone! Helen is here again today as Guest Designer. Valentine's Day is less than a month now. Can you feel the love in the air?

My card today is a clean-and-simple Valentine's Day card using the Cross Stitch Love stamp set and Hoop It Up Die Set.

I cut out the Hoop pieces out of a white cardstock with my die cutting machine. I sponged some Vintage Photo Distress Ink on them and then I added some glitter with Spectrum Noir Sparkle brush for extra bling on the hoop.

Then I added the cross-stitch circle die in the middle of the front card base and run it through my die cutting machine to give the cross-stitched die-cut impression on the card.

I stamped the sentiment Sew In Love on the middle top and bottom of the circle, then I stamped one cross-stitched heart in between the sentiment, and then stamped and fussy cut the other one with scissors, and added on the side slightly overlapping with 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

When I was done with the sentiment, I added the hoop on the card with liquid glue, and finished my card with some matching color twine ribbon and some pearl gems.

That's my card for today and I hope you all are inspired to create some handmade Valentine's Day cards to share the love with your friends and families.

THANK YOU for visiting me today and have a fabulous day!

Button Heart Card

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Valentine's Day, buttons
Isn't it fun to use images in a different, unexpected way?  Kecia Waters on the AJVD blog today with a card that does just that.

To make this card, I used the outside layer of the AJVD "Swirly Heart Die Set" and cut the heart into a sheet of cardstock.  Then, I temporarily taped the negative of this die cut onto a sheet of X-Press It cardstock.  Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the button image from the AJVD "I'll Be Darned Stamp Set" designed by Becky Schutea many, many times in the heart.  I then colored these buttons with Copic markers.  I then removed the temporary heart mask.

On a strip of black cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from AJVD's "Kelly's Hope Stamp Set" designed by Kelly Klapstein with Versamark watermark.  I added white embossing powder and heat set.  To finish off the card, I adhered a clear button and some Baker's Twine.

Cupid Strikes Again by JustYolie

Love is in the air!   Hello this is Yolie, today I'm sharing a card made with Simply Said: Love Struck, Cupid Die Set, and Banner {die}tails Nested.

I gathered paper scraps from my Valentine storage bin, Authentic and Recollections paper.  Gorgeous flowers by Prima, Tales of Us collection and decorative brads from Vintage Emporium collection.  I used Tombow glue to adhere the flowers and Memento black ink to stamp the sentiment.

Here are all my pieces, Cupid strikes again!  You will be seeing Cupid on more projects coming soon. I almost forgot ribbon/twine, I used about a yard of red/brown jute.

Here is the completed card.  After I laid out my pieces, I opted not to use the heart doily.  I also added rhinestones through out the card.

It's such a romantic card, I hope the recipient enjoys it, as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Here is a close up of the flowers, you can almost smell them!

Thank you for visiting today, enjoy your day.
