Valentine’s Day cards – love notes

I had a lot of Valentine’s Day cards left over from last year so I didn’t feel the need to make any for my shops. I still wanted to make something though, so I came up with these in an effort to also go through my stash of embellishments: I heat embossed the chipboard speech…

belated Valentine’s Day 2017

Hello! I just wanted to do a post about the Valentine’s Day cards I made this year. I forgot earlier in the month I had a lot of stuff left over from last year so I tried to use more embellishments than I usually do. These are my favourites:

CTD 427 – mint, aqua & pink

It is a Spring-like colour combo of mint, aqua and pink for Color Throwdown 427: I wouldn’t be surprised if another one similar to this comes up in April! Here is what I made: I decided that although Spring-y, the combination could also work for a Valentine’s Day card. Those are die cut hearts behind…

S.I.P. 81 – black, white and…

Hey there! The colour challenge at Stamp Ink Paper this week is black, white and a bit of colour: As February is coming up and I have been seeing so many fantastic black, white and red Valentine’s Day cards, I chose red as my additional colour. I have been drawn to cards with embossed layers…

S.I.P. 80 – maker’s choice

Challenge 80 at Stamp Ink Paper is… Too much freedom? I have always been one to colour inside the lines, using the conventional colours so that the result is “correct”. Slowly, I am trying to experiment and push my boundaries to make things that are a little more exciting. This card… is not one of…

CYCI 143 – sketch challenge

I am keeping up with my “back to challenges” streak with the three week-long challenge at Can You Case It? I have been meaning to start my Valentine’s Day cards and thought this sketch might get me in the mood. It certainly did, but my cold says that one card is enough for now 😀…

love greeting cards 2016 – last batch!

These are the last ones I had to make this year. The more I make, the more experience I get and the more knowledge I gain to make a card come together. Of course they are not going to be perfect, but if they were there would be nothing to strive for the next time!…

love greeting cards 2016 – assorted

These are thankfully a bit more elaborate than the ones I made way back at the beginning of January. They have a more romantic feel to them, thanks mostly to the fancy embellishments I’m sure 🙂

love greeting cards 2016 – Perfect For Me

I am not the biggest fan of quotes on things, but sometimes they just seem to work. Especially when you add glitter glue to them… (You can’t see it well in the photo but the second PERFECT has glitter glue on it.)

Stamp Ink Paper challenge #34 – love

Here is what I came up with for the Stamp Ink Paper challenge #34 (love theme). I loved using my new Valentine’s Day materials I got this year!  

love greeting cards 2016 – minis!

Here are some mini cards I did, gift tag size. I suppose they could go with a bottle of wine for a friend, or a hunk of metal and jewels for that special someone ? 😉 They were fun to make because although the small size was a bit limiting they felt so complete with…
