You’re the Cat’s Meow Valentine Card

I have mad love for the Nine Lives stamp set and Cat punch.  The Nine Lives stamp set is from the Stampin’ Up 2019 Occasions catalog and it coordinates with the Cat punch .  I was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge and my Bengal cat Rocco to create a Valentine’s Day card.

I stamped the wood background with Blushing Bride then added retired Real Red Mixed ribbon then adhered to the Real Red layer.  The cat was stamped on Crumb Cake then the markings were stamped in Early Espresso.  I used dimensionsl to adhere the cat.  The sentiment is framed and adhered with dimensionals  I finished the card with stamping hearts then embelleshed with basic rhinestones.

Valentine’s day is right around the corner.  This card would be so easy to duplicate quickly and send to family and friends for Valentine’s day.  Who wouldn’t love to get this card in the mail?!

Simple Valentine Cards

I created these simple Valentine cards for a class.  These were very easy for my guests and they loved them.  These two-layer cards showcased the Big Shot for the embossed backgrounds.  I love the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and combines well with the Artistic Etchings stamp set.  I stamped the medallion in Riding Hood Red on Very Vanilla CS to make the background.  I then stamped the Eiffel Tower, glued the Red Glitter heart atop the tower and added a bit of Scallop Trim to the bottom and stamped ‘AMOUR’.  I also tore the edges of the Very Vanilla CS and sponged the edges in Riding Hood Red. For the finishing touch,  I adhered pearls and rhinestones to the corners.

For the “Just my Type” card   I used the Texture Plates Kit #4 which I had not used for awhile.  This set has a wonderful typed background which coordinates perfectly with the vintage typewriter image from Puns from the Past and the Newsprint DSP.  I punched the border of the Newsprint layer and sponged the edges in black.  I love the Tiny Tags stamp set and Medium Jewelry punch.  These little tags add so much to any card.  I adhered with the mini glue dots the tags underneath the knot of the ribbon.  I stamped the typewriter image on Very Vanilla CS then punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch.  I also punched another Decorative Label in black and framed the Typewriter image.  I added the Red glitter heart to the top of the typewriter image and the pearls to the corners.

One of my goals this year is to finish the inside of my cards as I did below.  It just looks so much neater and gives you another opportunity to use more images from a stamp set.

With all my Heart

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have sketch challenge.  I knew I wanted to create a Valentine card because I’ve been itching to use the red glitter paper in the new occasions mini. I also used one of my favorite stamp sets Notably Ornate and my two DSP favs – Love Letter and Newsprint.  Hop on over to HHS and take the challenge.  We’d love to see your projects.

With all my heart Valentine card

I have also entered my card over at Pals Paper Arts.  Their Design Team is so talented.

I knew I wanted to to create a Valentine card because I wanted to use the Red Glitter paper and the Notably Ornate stamp set because I love the frame.  I stamped it and the bird in Basic Black and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I cut them both out with my paper snips.  The dotted heart is from the I {Heart} Hearts set and stamped in Cherry Cobbler and also trimmed with paper snips and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I framed the heart with the Pinking Heart border.  Kasey has a wonderful tutorial on how to frame with punched borders.

I created the large scallop border with 1″ circles.  I punched the circles from the Love Letter DSP.  I adhered the circles starting from the center so the border would end up even on both sides. The polka dot paper is from the Love Letter DSP and I also used a Newsprint layer.  For that Valentine feel I used the Red Glitter paper.  Love it!!  The sentiment banner ends are punched using the 1-1/4 square punch.  The sentiment is from the With all my Heart stamp set.
