Love is in the air…

I don’t know about you, but I love to make Valentines. Next to Halloween, Valentine’s Day is my favorite card making holiday! So, I’m getting a head start and making some Valentines. The two I’m sharing here use non-traditional Valentine colors and my two favorite heart stamps. I hope you like them!!

The first one uses SC261, this week’s card sketch from Splitcoaststampers and is my favorite 6” x 6” card size.


This one uses SC260 from SCS. I got some nice kraft cardstock the other day that’s 8.5” x 14”, so  I decided to do a 4 1/4” x 7” card. It was kind of a challenging size to work with! For some reason, the colors didn’t photograph well on this one. The heart is embossed with Ranger’s Verdi Gris embossing powder on kraft cardstock, and neither is quite this bright. The trim is not orange, either, but more of a dark kraft color. Not sure I’ll ever get this whole photo thing figured out!!! Anyway, hope you like them, and look forward to many more during the coming month!


If you’re looking for any other inspiration, check out Ink Stains with Roni—she’s just started some tutorials for making a calendar out of CDs. It looks like fun—I’m going to try and play along and I hope you do, too.

If you had the last week off work like I did, enjoy your last day of freedom tomorrow, because Monday is back to the grind!!!
