Hello readers and happy Monday! I hope you all found a little time to do something crafty over the weekend. Today I am being featured on the Birch Press Design blog sharing two simple and classic black and white themed Valentine's Day cards using Layer A of the beautiful Kinsley Heart Layering Plates.
Both of these cards were created the same way, I just alternated the background colors, so they look slightly different. Here is the first card I created:
And here is the second card I created using the same products:

Hello friends and happy Friday! I hope you have fun things planned for the weekend ahead. Today I am sharing another Valentine's Day slimline card using the Be Courageous stamp set and coordinating dies from Pinkfresh Studio. I have combined this stamp with some large letter framelit dies spelling out the world L-O-V-E in red glitter paper since the stamp set itself wasn't designed with love themed sentiments.
This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2". Slimline cards are designed to fit inside a regular #10 business sized envelope and require no additional postage. The base of this slimline card was made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White cardstock. On a 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of the same white cardstock, I stamped the large floral background (Be Courageous by Pinkfresh Studio) in Memento Tuxedo black ink. Once the ink drink, I colored the flowers with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to die cut teh image out and adhere it to the front of the card. I die cut the large letters L-O-V-E from red glitter cardstock and adhered the letters to the center of the card using strips of 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment "Happy Valentine's Day" in Versamark ink on a thin strip of vellum cardstock. I heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder. I notched both ends and adhered it to the center of the card over the words "love."
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative weekend!
Hello friends! As I type this blogpost (it's Monday evening) and we are in the midst of a true New England blizzard. With somewhere between 8-14" of snow on it's way, I have a feeling that tomorrow will be a snow day for me - which means I get to spend the day crafting! I think I have a few more Valentine's Day themed cards I'd like to to create based upon some ideas floating around in my mind.
Today's slimline card used the Boho Frames digital stamp set from 88 and Clear.
This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2". The base of the card was made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I cut a 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Black Taffy cardstock for the first matted layer. Using the Slimline Frames & Portholes dies from Newton's Nook Designs, I cut the scalloped layer from Rich Cherry cardstock. I printed the Boho Frames digital stamp set three times on 80 lb. Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I used the same frame three times on this card. I colored the frame with Copic markers and fussy cut the frame. I adhered all three frames to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. On a 4" x 1" strip of Black Taffy cardstock, I stamped the "with love" sentiment in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I notched both ends before adhering the sentiment to the center of the card.
Here is the Boho Frames stamp set from 88 and Clear that I used to create today's card:
I hope you have enjoyed today's card. Thank you for visiting and happy crafting!
Hello readers and happy Monday! I hope you all had a nice weekend. I am excited to begin sharing some Valentine's Day cards with you over the next two weeks. Today's card uses the You Are Loved dies and the Beautiful Flowers stamp set both from Simon Says Stamp.
*Both of these cards were made using the same products, I simply used alternating colors.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using either petal pink ink (on pink cardstock) or real red ink (on red cardstock), I stamped the background of each with the Roses All Over stamp set by My Favorite Things. On real red or petal pink cardstock, I stamped the large bouquet of roses from the Beautiful Flowers stamp set in Versamark ink. (I stamped this image twice because I needed two sets for each card.) I heat embossed the large roses in white embossing powder and used the coordinating die to cut the flowers out. I adhered one of the die cuts to the top left corner and one to the lower right corner of each card cutting the edges to fit the 5 1/4" x 4" panel.
I die cut the outer shadow portion of the "You are Loved" die on white cardstock and the thinner script portion was die cut from gold glitter cardstock. I adhered both layers together using a Lawn Fawn glue tube. I then adhered the entire sentiment to the center of the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
I hope today's feature will inspire you to begin creating (and ultimately sending) your Valentine's Day cards. Thank you for visiting, stay warm, and happy crafting!
