Lots of Love: Sending Warm Hugs

Happy Thursday...Valentine's day is just around the corner, so I've almost completed my valentine challenge! Today's card features my only WPlus9 stamp, it was just too cute to not come live in my craft room.  But I haven't inked it up until now. :)


I colored the bear and little girl with copic markers.  I really love how the colors turned out.  This card doesn't have to be a Valentine, it could be for any occasion.  It's been pretty cold here so I was inspired to surround my friends with delicate snowflakes. I added some white wink of stella glitter to the snowflakes for a very subtle shimmer, it's hard to see in photographs unfortunately.


I used the largest stitched heart stackable die from Lawn Fawn for the background heart and one of the new sentiment banner dies for my sentiment.  The sentiment is one of the freebies that you get with Lawn Fawn orders, these change all the time so I'm not sure if these are still in rotation but it was the perfect sentiment and size for my design.

Thanks for stopping by today! I'll have another card tomorrow.

Lots of Love: You are my Anchor

Today I'm back for day 10 of my Lots of Love challenge.  YAY, mission almost accomplished.  I really love how today's card turned out.


This card is very simple, I used the largest 4 bar stitched rectangle die to cut out the background paper from on of the Perfectly Plaid papers.  I used one of the ocean wave border dies to cut some Mermaid cardstock for the waves along the bottom.  I stamped the anchor with Wild Rose ink and the sentiment with Hippo ink.


The anchor is tethered to the top with some sweetheart twine, then I finished off with some stardust stickles in the waves and some glitter white doodlebug sprinkles.

Thanks for stopping by today! I'll see you tomorrow!

Lots of Love: Bee Mine

I'm back again with another card for my personal Lots of Love challenge.  Today I'm using a halloween set for a valentine.  But when it's a bear dressed as a bee...why not!


I colored my bee with copics and cut him out with the coordinating die.  I used papers from the Let's Polka in the dark collection to cut my scalloped rectangle panel and rectangular frame.


For the sentiment part of my card I cut the letters out of the red paper and then layered a piece of black cardstock behind it.

Thanks for stopping today!

Lots of Love: Hedgehog Shaker

Today my Lots of Love Valentine has lots of shaking going on!


I made a shaker card filled with different colors and sizes of heart glitter and confetti.  I used the cute little hedgehogs from Sending Hedgehugs to layer over the shaker window.  I colored them with copics.  The sentiment is stamped on one of the new Sentiment Banner dies.


I used the Dracula line dance paper from Let's Polka in the Dark for my background and layered it on a card cut with the coordinating scalloped rectangle die.  I finished off with some red stickles on the hearts, faux white stitching around the heart cut out and some DIY enamel accents added with wedding dress pico embellisher.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Lots of Love: Love you Tons

I'm half way through my Lots of Love challenge, 14 valentine's in 14 days, this is the most love I've shown my blog in awhile! It's day 7 and today I'm using some cute little elephants to spread the love.


I stamped the little elephants from Love You Tons in hippo ink and colored them with colored pencils.  The sentiment banner is cut using the new sentiment banners from Lawn Fawn. I stamped the sentiment with lobster ink and the hearts with wild rose. The card base is cut from new Lawn Fawn card stock in Guava!  I'm excited about these new card stocks and look forward to the color collection growing in the future hopefully.


 I used the stitched square dies to cut the plaid panel.  By using the die and lining it up right I was able to center the pattern in the shape perfectly.  I love the the Perfectly Plaid collection has plaids both on the 45 degree diagonal and at 90 degrees straight.  I cut a stitched heart from pink card stock and centered it in the plaid panel.  The plaid pattern also makes it easy to line up the sentiment banner straight!  I finished it off with some heart enamel embellishments I had in my stash and some faux stitching in white pen around the plaid square.

Thanks for stopping by!
I've made it half way so 7 more cards to go, join me tomorrow when I share another valentine.
