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.

Flamingo Valentine’s Day Card

OOPS! Guess who forgot to schedule a post for today!

This is for my goofy parents.

I think the flamingo on the right (Dad!) came out a little dark, but I was not willing to scrap the card over me not having the correct marker color.

For the hearts, I mixed a few drops of Real Red inker with embossing paste, and applied over a tiny heart stencil.
