You Make My Heart Bloom

Late post today I was having trouble getting motivated 😛

This card came out so much better then I imagined and I was able to combine cardmaking and Hand Lettering! The hand lettering bit on this card isn’t the best but I still love how this came out!

Happy Saturday Crafty Friends!

I’m here today with a video and the follow up from Thursday’s post!



For this technique I used the cut out image from the heart shaped die I used to create the stencil for Thursday’s card! As the gideline for creating the pawprint heart!!

I hope you enjoy today’s video!

A Pawprint Valentine: Using non-holiday stamps Part 1

Hello Crafty Friends!

Recently I’ve been buying a lot of cute animal stamp sets. I decided I wanted to try and see what I could do with them for Valentine’s Day.

If you follow my Facebook Page. (Which you should ) you probably saw my post about my lack of Valentine stamps. So I decided to make some of my non-valentine stamp sets work for Valentine’s Day!
While neither of these cards came out super awesome amazing I thought they were still worth a share. While this particular card I went with a Valentine’s theme with the colors, change them up a little and it might make a nice pet sympathy card as well.


Before I get onto the usual supply list and challenges let me tell you a little about how I made this card.

In order to get the heart shape, I created a mask out of my Spellbinders heart dies. I simply blended the distress ink colors using my self-created stencil, stamped the paw prints inside then added the greeting before finally running the edges through some versamark and heat embossing the edges in gold.

I’ll use the other part of the die cut in Saturday’s video. So stay tuned! 🙂

When you Don’t have the Right Stamp

Hello crafty friends!!!  Today I’m keeping on with the valentine’s theme.

Here’s the little story behind this card. I wanted to add some kind of greeting/sentiment to this card and as I’ve been working on all these valentine’s cards I’m realizing I’m lacking in the Valentine’s Day greeting stamps department. Well luckily for me I have been working on the hand lettering thing for just this ocasaion. Unfourgtunently I haven’t totally mastered the small scale lettering yet so my greeting on this card isn’t as hand lettered looking as a I hoped. My goal was also to fit happy Valentine’s Day into the balloon but it became quickly very clear that wasn’t happening. Anyway the lesson for today is when you don’t have the right stamp make your own. 🙂

Happy Engagement

HI Everyone! Keeping with the love theme. I have a very wonderful friend who recently got engaged. And I finally had a chance to get an engagement card together for her! It might be bordering  on more of wedding  card. But it’s an engagement card because I say so. 😜
