Sweetheart Card

Hi! I wanted to share a little card I made. I have been playing around with my Martha Stewart punch around the page punch and have decided I must buy more!

I used Spellbinder's dies for the heart and banner. The flower was cut and rolled by hand. 

Thanks for looking!

Valentine Tag


Below is another project I created for the Crafty Secrets Linky Party.  Don't forget to submit your entries by Sunday night.  Everyone who participates wins a $6.00 gift card and one lucky individual will win $50.00 to their online store.

The image is from Crafty Secrets' Vintage Valentine Digital Kit.  I am so obsessed with this kit.  It has many beautiful images and papers.

I absolutely love my new heart die by Spellbinders. I foresee it being used quite a bit going forward. The tag was painted with acrylic paint and I stained the bow using Spun Sugar.  The rose was a little extra I had lying around my craft area so I apologize for not knowing the brand.

Thanks for looking!

To My Fond Love

Good afternoon!  I don't know about you but I am going through Christmas withdrawals.  I am always sad to put away our Christmas decor, especially our tree ornaments.  We collect ornaments each time we visit a new place and every year I enjoy pulling them out and remembering those special times with our family.  It's hard to put them away!

I wanted to share a Valentine card I created for this month's Crafty Secrets Linky Party.  I used their Valentine Digital Download Kit-it has some of the most darling images! The image, the sheet music, and the large pink background paper were all printed from the kit.  I didn't showcase the background paper too much but it is covered in roses. I will have to do another project to feature it as it is simply lovely!

This card was simple to make.  I used several spellbinder dies for the flowers and the frame and applied a paper distress tool on the larger backgrounds.  I free-handed a few Viva 'pearls' for accent.

Hi! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I can't seem to wrap my head around the fact that it is already New Year's Day.

I wanted to share a card I made.  It was a little time consuming but very simple to create. I used Spellbinders' dies for the background, lattice, frame, and roses.  The leaves and swirls were cut from Sizzix dies.

I used glitter on the flourishes and Stickles on the leaves.  The inside of the card was cut with a Fisker's punch. 

Thanks for looking!  Happy New Year!
