Happy Heart Day!

Looking forward to spending the weekend eating lots of chocolate and smelling flowers!

I am back with some fun watercolors again and I am still crazy about this “happy” sentiment die.

I added multiple layers to make the happy sentiment pop up! The top layer was red foil paper which looks so great for a valentine’s day card.

Hope you are spending a wonderful weekend with your loved ones!

If you are anything like me you must have a bunch of project life cards stored away because they are too fancy to use! I turned some project life 3×4 cards into a shaker card for Valentine’s Day.

It’s so hard to capture the sequins shaking around in a photograph but this heart shaker is filled with lots of fun pink and gold sequins.  I used vellum and embossed gold circles and the  sentiment.  The project life card is from Heidi Swapp’s gold foil kit.  love love!  I am glad I scooped up the kit because it has been sold out for weeks at my local craft store.

Did I mention that Tim Holtz’s tiny attacher is totally awesome.  To turn the staples into gold, I used a Gold Sharpie Metallic marker. So cute and adorable!

Unconventional Valentine’s Day

Something a little different for valentine’s day this year:

I was attempting to make a non-cutesy valentine’s day card and came up with the idea of adding little touches of pink distress inks around the die cut stitched circles:

I really like how soft and subtle the card came out! Aren’t these stitched dies and borders adorable?  To make the happy sentiment, I applied distress inks to the edges and then used two coats of clear embossing powder to give it that “dome” look.

For the final touches I added sequins and gold thread to give it that pop of color! More fun valentine’s day cards to come!
