Happy Valentine’s Day! Can you believe it’s already the middle of February? I feel like the year is moving a bit fast. :)
I have decided I am going to be better at making and sending cards this year. I need to make one of those perpetual birthday calendars, because I want to get birthday cards sent out on time. I always seem to realize it’s someones birthday the day before, and then it’s too late.
I was actually able to finish and mail my Valentine’s cards before the last minute this year. :) I like to send cards to my parents and sister, and of course, give one to Nathan.
My parents enjoy bird watching, so I thought this would be a fun card for them. I used the Love Is In The Air stamp set by Avery Elle. I used inks from Simon Says Stamp, Altenew, Delicata and Distress Oxide.
I made this card for my sister using the Neat and Tangled Heart Duo stencils. This is a fun layering stencil set! I used Distress Oxide inks in Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries. The sentiment is from Concord & 9th’s Monogram Heart. I stamped the sentiments for both cards with Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink and then used WOW! Embossing Powder in clear.
This is the card I made for Nathan. I used the Love Is Love Bold Prints background stamp from Hero Arts. I stamped this with VersaMark Ink and again used the clear Embossing Powder from WOW! Then I die cut the heart four times from pink cardstock using the Sketch Heart die from Simon Says Stamp.
I hope you have a wonderful day! And if Valentine’s Day isn’t your thing, Happy Friday!! :)

there was a Valentine link-up not too long ago [nearly a fortnight ago]. It is at Finding Ninee – so if in future weeks you have something suited … that is the spot to go.
[there are also lots of craft link-ups if you want them].
Loving the looks of your cards – and the spirit involved – and what you do with die cutting.
The layers – I never really got into them until the computer world came to me…
Ah – the day before!
