Orchid and Pink Valentine’s Day Card

Last of the Valentines…I had to wait to be sure it was delivered.

The stamp is from Target’s $1 Aisle ($3 for 4 different “I love you” stamps) – thanks, Offspring3!

Only regret – I should have tried to form a heart with the white floss as I was gluing it down.

Another horrible mass shooting at a high school yesterday – just feeling hollow. Thoughts and prayers to the community involved.

Supplies: Stamp – Horizon Group, paper – American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, Taylored Expressions Strawberry Milkshake, ink – Hero Arts Unicorn, die – Simon Says Stamp, sequins – Crate Paper, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white, floss – DMC.

Razzle Berry and Pool Party Spectacular Card

I was wishing for summer weather and fun sunglasses when I made this!

I cut 3 pairs of glasses with the My Favorite Things die (On A Whim, Razzle Berry, Basic Black) and glued them together (leaving one layer off the lenses). I dotted a bit of Wink of Stella into the tiny cutouts on the cat eye corners for some shimmer.

Supplies: Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop Tone Razzle Berry, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Pool Party, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black,  ZIG Wink of Stella clear, die – My Favorite Things, embossing folder Stampin’ Up! (Sizzix).

You Give Me Butterflies Card

This is another sentiment from my new My Favorite Things sentiment set.

The butterflies are all punched from American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim scraps with a Martha Stewart punch (it punches 2 small and one large butterfly at once, if you want 3 butterflies).

I did think, “oh, my, what have I gotten myself into??” about halfway through the gluing process. I am in love with the final card.

Supplies: Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Stardream Silver, ink – VersaMark, die – Lawn Fawn, punch – Martha Stewart, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Sterling Silver.
