I am really liking my creative planning and how the transition from scrapbooking to card making has been so simple for me the past few days.
I thought that since Valentine's Day is a few weeks away that I should try to make some Valentine's Day/Love cards.
With the first three cards, I used the Love Struck Cricut Cartridge. This was actually the first time I have ever used it. I think it was released in 2010...that's four years I have had it and haven't created with it!
The bottom layer on the Cricut image is actually pink. I used the Tim Holtz Distressed Ink in Vintage Photo with a foam applicator and sponged the bottom layer once the top layer was on.
The wording and the heart in the background are from the set, From the Heart from Tim Holtz's Stamper's Anonymous set. I used brushed corduroy, and Tea Dye Distress Ink on the heart. For the background, I used vintage photo, brushed corduroy, and worn lipstick for coloring.
The patterned paper was from my scrap bin.
The ribbon/lace that I put on the top of the card was from my ribbon stash.
I'm not quite sure what paper company the lips are from. LOL! The three little pink brads are Bazzil Bling brads.
The next three cards are made with some Precious Moments rubber stamps that I found! I literally have not used these stamps in at least TEN years! What a joy it was to find them!
All the images were colored with Prismacolor colored pencils.
I did distress with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in vintage photo and spun sugar.
The patterned papers used were from my scrap bin. I cut the circles with the Creative Memories circle cutter system. I did ink the background of the image too.
The ribbon is by Offray. The pearls were from my bling stash! LOL!
The gray paper is Bazzil Bling also. I used an EK Success border punch on the top and the bottom of the gray strip of paper. The stamped image is from Ornate Collection ATC stamps from Tim Holtz's Stamper's Anonymous set. I inked it with worn lipstick and vintage photo Distress Inks. The two pearl brads are from Teresa Collins' "Fabrications" collection. The ribbon is from Offray.
I tried to think of what a little girl would like and find cool and this is what I came up with.
The base is made with white card stock. The black mat is from Bazzil. The patterned paper is from my scrap bin, but I know it's from Bo Bunny.
The ladybug was cut using the Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge. All the paper I used on the ladybug was from Bazzil. The flower on the corner of the card was punched using a flower paper punch with Bazzil paper. The "You're So Sweet" saying was from a Studio G stamp set.
Well, there ya have it! I need to find places for these cards to go! I am very happy with how they all turned out.
I am sorry that this post was so long!
Thanks for stopping by!
