Valentine's Day cards and Birthday Cards, Etc. . .


Hi Friends!  Happy New Year!  It's been a while since I last blogged.  How was your holidays? Although I haven't been posting any cards for the past month, I've been making cards regularly.  I've been concentrating on Birthdays, Thank You and Valentine's card.

 I went through a few storage containers and pulled out some rubber stamps that I haven't worked with in a while.  I have a bunch of really cute House Mouse, Penny Black and Whipper Snapper stamps so I decided to work on cards using those stamps!  With this card, I used a Whipper Snapper image.


This one is a Penny Black image.


I also have a bunch of Close to My Heart stamp sets.  I was once a CTMH demonstrator so I have a ton of CTMH stamps sets and many of which I have not used at all.  With this card, although you can't really see it in the photo, I heat embossed the image on to red card stock using black embossing powder.  In person, it has a raised appearance to it.


I did the same thing with the heart image on this card but this time used white embossing powder.


This image is another Close to My Heart image and again heat embossed with black embossing powder.


With this card, I used a Stampin Up image.  The unique thing about this card is that I used a scrap fabric to create the bow and the strip across the card.  No point wasting a nice piece of scrap fabric, right?

Anyway, I do have a lot more cards to share but I'll share them next time!  Hope you are all doing well!
