Love Ewe

I made this adorable Valentine’s card for my littlest niece this morning. It’s her first handmade card from Auntie!

 

2016 Card 23 - Avery Elle Hogs and Kisses

 

I used the new Mojo Monday sketch. I liked all the layers on it, great way to use several different patterned papers.  All of the paper is from Crate Paper Hello Love and the stamps are from Avery Elle’s Hogs & Kisses set.  The big heart is from Avery Elle’s Scalloped & Pierced hearts set and the smaller hearts are from a Lawn Fawn die.

 

 

I had a ton of stuff set aside for all the Valentine cards I would make this month…ha. I guess I can put it all away now! This was the only card I ended up making. Mike and my nephew got cards from a card class I took last month.  LOAD has kicked my butt this month and cardmaking has fallen by the wayside.

 

I’ll be back later with my LOAD layout. Still trying to figure out what to do!

 

Supplies~

Stamps: Avery Elle Hogs and Kisses

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Archival Jet Black

CS: SU Pink Pirouette

PP: Crate Paper Hello Love

Other: Avery Elle Scalloped & Pierced Heart Elle-ments, Lawn Fawn hearts, copics

LOAD14 – Valentine’s Day 2016

We had a nice quiet Valentine’s Day at home and since today’s prompt is food, I decided to scrapbook our day. Not sure when I’ve scrapbooked pictures so quickly!

 

I used the February Sketch from Paper Issues and it’s my second entry for my group’s Old/New challenge. I mixed Basic Grey’s Sugar Rush from 2009 and J’Adore from a year or two ago.

I added hearts using an MFT stencil and distress inks in the upper left corner. I used a Simon Says Stamp stencil with tiny hearts on the bottom right.

 

Here is the sketch~

I Heart You

Good morning!!

 

Another quick crafty morning for me before work. I remembered that the sketch at Create with Connie & Mary ends today so I wanted to get a card entered. I just LOVE this sketch, all I could envision was using lots of DSP and that’s just what I did!

 

2015 Card 20 - SU Stacked with Love

 

I used 4 different patterns from the Stacked with Love paper pad.  I added in a sentiment from And Many More. Tied a not so good Real Red cotton ribbon bow and added two rhinestones to finish the card off.  The base is Calypso Coral, one of my all time favorite SU colors!

 

Here is the sketch~

Time to finish getting ready for work. Have a GREAT day!!!

Monster Mash Valentine

Hi!

 

Tonight’s card was a bit of a challenge lol…I was inspired by a card I saw this morning, and a challenge a friend shared with me, to use my Simon Says Stamp Monster Hugs stamp set. I knew the look I was going for but it was a bit difficult since I haven’t masked my images before. I will admit that I am a lazy stamper! After a few attempts, I finally got it how I wanted it.

 

This is the card I am entering in Tuesday Throwdown’s Monster Mash challenge~

2015 Card 17 - SSS Monster Hugs

 

We’ve established that I love stitched dies, right? I used my MFT Stitched Tag Stax for the first time tonight. I thought about adding a bow but it didn’t like it, so I added a silver heart brad from my stash. The little hearts are leftover from a card I made a few nights ago.

 

Have a great night!
