I know! Valentine’s Day is long past! I made this Valentine for my Mom, but just didn’t get it posted right away. This is a fabulous stamp and die set from Poppy (and I have a discerning eye when it comes to penguins!). I colored the penguin and accessories with Copic markers and used the coordinating die set to easily cut them out. The greeting was also from the Poppy set. The patterned papers are actually both side of the same sheet by Authentique. I have a bit of the red metallic paper I used for the heart peaking out from behind the patterned layer to tie things together. This card perfectly fits the theme for the current challenge at Poppy: Hearts Aflutter. Thanks for stopping by.

I created this Valentine using My Favorite Things Sketch #267. I colored the bunny image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and a waterbrush. It was a very simple interpretation of the sketch.

First Valentine of 2016

  • Die – Memory Box “Flicker Hearts”
  • Stamp – My Sentiments Exactly H178 “Valentine’s Day”
  • Crystal Stickers “Ruby Round 3mm”
  • Cardstock – Neenah Solar White and Bazzill (red)

This is the first Valentine I’ve made so far this year. It features the lovely die from Memory Box that really deserves to be the focal point in this clean and simple card. I really like the detail that you get with this die. I backed the cut area with red cardstock and added the red bling in honor of Addicted to CAS Challenge #80 “Code Word Red”, and which follows the basic layout of Paper Players Sketch #279. Thanks for visiting.

  • Stamp – from Simon Says Stamp “Lots of Hearts” set
  • Dies – WPlus9 “Stackers Hearts”
  • Stickers – Pebbles Epoxy Hearts

I’ve been working in my art journals lately, so I want to get back into a few cards again. I used the suggested color palette in the Paper Players Color Challenge #231 for this card. I used several patterned papers from the same Pebbles collection since they were the right colors and coordinated so well. I liked stamping the patterned heart onto the patterned paper heart for this one. The patterned papers really took the lead on this one. It was a fun card to make. Thanks for visiting!

I am taking the Online Card Classes Clean & Simple 4 class right now. I’m trying to keep up in the evenings after work, although today I did fall behind. However, I did finish a card! I was inspired by Debby Hughes lesson on the faux paper cutting technique. I used a lot of dies in my collection to create this heart. It took a very long time and I learned a lot (mainly about what I’d do better next time!). It was a fun card to complete. Thanks for visiting.
