Sharing Some Valentine's Day Cards

Happy Valentine's Day - a little early!  I wanted to share a few cards that I made this week, in addition to the ones that are already in  my Etsy shop.  A list of the supplies, with affiliate links, will be below each photo.  Thanks for visiting!  If you'd like me to do a tutorial/video on how to make any of the cards, please leave a comment.  Happy crafting!


I used the punched-out negative cardstock to stencil the envelope using a Kaleidacolor Desert Heat inkpad by Tsukineko.

For this card, I used my Cricut Explore Air.

Holiday Card Throwback (not really!) #11: Winter Birthday Cards

Hi there!  Today's throwback isn't really a throwback, in the sense that it isn't a video walk down Memory Lane.  Today I decided to make some birthday cards for a birthday RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) group that I belong to.  Since I wanted to get a head start on my January cards, and since I still had my box of Christmas stamps out, I thought I would use a snowflake background stamp. Almost all the supplies I used were quite old.   A full supply list, with links to where you can buy them, will be at the end of this post.  If you'd like to know how I made these, please leave a comment below to let me know.  Thanks for visiting, and Happy Holidays!

Hero Arts Snowflake Background Stamp (I used one by Impression Obsession, but this one is very similar.)

Holiday Card Throwback #10: Tim Holtz Christmas Tag - Good Ol' Frosty

Remember when Tim Holtz used to do his 12 Tags of Christmas?  It was such an exciting time for us stampers.  We got a chance to play with all those supplies we'd collected during the year and do something fun with them.  It was so disappointing when he stopped doing them in 2016.  I really miss them.

Yesterday I thought I'd re-visit some of them and share with you.  I thought it would be very timely, since things are getting down to the wire, and you're probably (like me) getting ready to wrap some Christmas gifts.

Here ya go:  Enjoy!

Holiday Card Throwback #9: Lawn Fawn Toboggan Together

I have this set, and it's one of the cutest sets I own.  Although this video is filmed at an unusual angle, the card is cute and pretty easy to make.  You don't need all the dies she uses, and you don't even need the same stamp set.  You could use any animals and trees you have to make something similar.  Enjoy!

Holiday Card Throwback #8: Foiling

Hi everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family, friends, and loved ones.  For today's video, I chose another one from Gina K.  If you have her Foil Mates, or any other holiday foiling supplies, she has some really cute ideas here.  Have fun, and remember:  Only 26 more days until Christmas!  Get busy on those Christmas cards!
