Cards for Valentine's Day


 I have been working on some cards to send to my late mother-in-law's assisted living residence for the caregivers to pass out for anyone that needs a little  extra love. It has been a very long, lonely road for them and they are still not allowed visits. 

This paper pack is the 12" x 12" size from Echo Park, called Cupid & Co. All of these cards and I haven't even put a tiny dent in the pack. Some of the papers will still go on past Valentine's Day for other occasions, there are some really pretty florals and plaids.

LOVE


 Another using the pretty Hero Arts Window On Love confetti fancy die- two layers of black underneath the white to give added dimension. The LOVE stamp is by Fun Stampers Journey cut with Stampin' Up! Stitched So Sweetly dies.

Fancy Hearts


 

Time to start the valentines! This pretty die is from Hero Arts, the Window of Love Hearts Confetti fancy die. I made it into a shaker card with an acetate sheets, some sequins and some punched out mini circles from foil paper. The designer paper behind the die is from Craft Consortium and is just gorgeous, my favorite paper pack in a long time, called Vivid- Ink Drops. Sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s Celebrate Sunflowers set.

Sweet Snowflakes


 

This is another cards from the January card kit from Simon Says Stamp. Everything in this kit is so lovely and makes it so easy to make a pretty card with those love papers, stamps and snowflake die. Hero Arts ombre ink pad used for the sentiment along with Trinity Stamps Fairy Rocks to embellish.

Snow Much


 This pretty card kit from Simon Says Stamp (January 2021) arrived today. Love the papers, stamps, die, all of it! Versatile, this will get you through general winter occasions, in addition to Christmas projects.

Happy 2021!



I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year. Here's to a better year coming for all of us.

I've been working on clearing up some of my half-finished projects before moving on to the next thing. This set of cards uses The Greetery Fresh Florals and some sentiments from Avery Elle. Simple, clean, and one layer for easy mailing.
