Happy Valentine's Day

Hi everyone, my newest post on the Just For Fun Rubber Stamp blog uses this amazing
Valentine Background stamp.

The stamp is 5" x 3 3/4" and is perfect for making a statement on your card.

Using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamped the background on white cardstock.  Next, I die cut it with Spellbinders die and inked the edges with .  Then I matted the oval with a red scalloped oval.
Isn't this a wonderful stamp?  So many possibilities.

Valentine's Day Tags with RInea Foils

Hi everyone, Happy Valentine's Day!

Rinea Foiled Papers are amazing foils that hold up to embossing, die cutting and punching.

What do you think of details achieved with this embossing folder?

And this one?

The foils can be punched easily for stunning results too.

For more stability, I matted the tags with cardstock, then added ribbons, flowers and stamps.

Valentine's Day Mini Album - ClearScraps

Hi everyone, I'm on the Clear Scraps blog today with a mini album.  Clear Scraps exhibited new wood albums at Creativation and this Heart album was one of them.

I painted each panel with Plaid Dye Ink.

Then I covered each panel with Papers from Photoplay's Vintage Girl collection.

Finally, I decorated with stickers, photo mats and pocket pages.  I used twine to tie the pages together.

Thanks for stopping by today.



Love Wreath - ClearScraps

Hi everyone, I'm on the ClearScraps blog with a rustic wreath just in time for Valentine's Day.

The kit this month included this XL Love word which can be inked, painted or stenciled.

I began by spritzing the word with several colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, letting each color dry before adding the next color.

Then I used the 6" Fern Stencil and 6" Swirl Pumpkin Stencil from ClearScraps to add details to the word with molding paste.

After wrapping a grapevine wreath with tulle, I tied red ribbon around the wreath.  LOVE was then adhered to the wreath.

Angel Love Heart

Hi everyone, I'm on the Makin's Clay blog with a Valentine's Day Heart.  Valentine's Day will be here soon, so why not create something special.

Makin's Clay -  White
Makin's ProfessionalⓇ Cutting Mat
Makin'sⓇ Clay Roller and Cutters Set
Makin'sⓇ Tool Set
Beacon Adhesives - 3-in-1
Prima acrylic paints
Prima mold
Mod Podge Mold
Wilton Mold

Begin by conditioning white clay.  Place the white clay in the molds.  Use the roller to force the clay into the molds and then use the mallet to trim away the excess clay.

Remove the clay elements. Paint the angel with Gold Rush, Rose Gold and Copper acrylic paints.  Paint the pearl drops and letters with Gold Rush acrylic paint.

Paint a blackboard heart with Prima acrylic paints in Rose Gold, Copper and Violet Gold.  Heat set between each layer to set the paints so the colors don't get muddied.  Add a large flower in one corner, then place all elements on the heart until the arrangement is pleasing.  Glue in place with Beacon Adhesives.

Add rhinestones to the top edges to finish.

Clay elements are light weight and add no weight so you can hang this heart almost anywhere.

Thanks for stopping by.


Girly Cards with Clear Scraps

Hi everyone, I'm on the Clear Scraps blog today with some feminine cards I created from the February kit.

The pattern papers included with the kit are gorgeous and the sequins added a fun touch of color to this card.

My next card uses a shaker card that was perfect for displaying the sequins.

I added a phrase behind the opening that would show under the sequins then added the topper.

Thanks for stopping by.



Friendship Blooms with ScorPal

Hi everyone, it's a new month and the challenge on the ScorPal blog is to create anything as long as you use more than one score.

Then I created a belly band to fit around the card, holding it together.
