Hubby's Valentine card...

Hello Craft Friends!

Just a quick card for hubby.  This worked up fast using stamps and die cuts from one of my Card club kits from The Stamps of Life.  Stamped on the inside is All of me Loves All of you.  My husband dedicated this John Legend song to me when it first came out.  Kind of our theme.  Love him so much.  <3 <3 <3

I just purchased my first pack of water color paper and tried to do a water color look wash with my Momento pens and sprayed some water on a big Ziploc freezer bag then transferred to the paper.   Not exactly what I imagined it to be.  But I try not to let things go to waste.  Including the background papers.  ;)  (They were from an old bridal shower order and wedding scraps.) Besides...purple and green are my favorite colors. I will keep practicing.

Side note: I did clean it up after I saw the close of  the photo. ;)
I think I need stronger readers!  Noooo!!!  LOL!
Hope you had a wonderful day.

Valentines banner...

Hello Crafty Friends!

Made my first Valentine's banner.  I have been making banners lately for customers and thought I should make one for me. I don't really have much in the way of Valentine decor. (Really, I can't get to my boxes as they are stuffed way back in the closet since our son moved back home until he finishes college...one more year! hehe)

I recently purchased a Sizzix Eclps2 with Bluetooth and Ecal2 software from SVGTools and I am LOVING IT!

I used Scalloped Shapes from SVGCuts and the Curlz font for the letters.  On the solid shapes I learned how to add the dash lines to look like stitches then used my white gel pen and Micro pen to create the stiches.  The arrow was from the shapes library in Ecal2

In addition to using regular solid color cardstock I also used pattern paper Love Story Collection and Me & You Collection (sorry no link for this one, must not be available yet) from TheStampsofLife.

 Now I am off to make a Valentine for my granddaughter.  <3  Maybe even one for my hubby ;)  LOL!  Of course I will share...after Valentines Day.

Pin It!
