CAS'in #37 & Paper Smooches Sparks

I created this card using the sketch from CAS-ual Friday's and the love stamp and inspiration are from Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge!  I love that this isn't your typically color scheme for a Valentine's Day card.  I just love this lightbulb stamp, it is so darn cute!  I stamped it on some ivory cardstock and colored it with some Copics (using the inspiration colors of mainly yellow & pastels in mint/teal).  After that I added some glossy accents to give it a little something extra and also so it would look like an actual light bulb.  I also loved the stitching on the inspiration photo flowers so I added some border stitching with my sewing machine.   I think this is just a fun and cute card!

Clean & Simple Stampin' (#175)

I'm back with another Valentine's Day card!  For this card I used the sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping.  I used a spellbinders set to cut the circles, I used an old scrap of sprayed pink paper to punch out the hearts and I heat embossed the sentiment.  I also broke out the sewing machine for this one too stitching both edges with pink thread.  This card is available on my Etsy page and at Re:Discover!

CAS'in #36

Here's another valentine's day card that I made using inspiration from the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge where this week the challenge was to design a card using black & white only, not a speck of any other colors were allowed.  This was definitely a challenge for me because I wanted to splatter red on this but love how it came out.   I stamped the 'xo's' in the background with a border stamp from Papertrey Ink's Love Songs set.  After adding the scallops & twine, I heat embossed the sentiment on the scalloped circle and then popped it up on some foam squares.  I then popped that cute white heart in the center and popped that up on a foam square as well.

I made this Valentine's Day card just for fun!  I just love this sentiment from the Papertrey Ink's Love Songs set.  I have been seeing kraft on kraft a lot lately on all of the crafting blogs and I just love it for it's clean and simple look.  I posted this one in my Etsy shop and made a 2nd one to sell at re:Discover!

This is the first time I am playing along with the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday challenge over on Nichole Heady's blog, I can't believe I've never done this before!  I watch the videos almost every week.  This week you got to choose which technique you wanted to use - I chose pleated ribbon for this little Valentine's Day card.  It's such a fun detail and really gives the card a little something extra.  I used the Papertrey Ink set - Love Songs - for the valentines sentiment, I cut the heart out of felt on my Cuttlebug and threaded a button in the center with some bakers twine.
