Happy Valentine’s Day ~ Cards

Went through my stash of old cards and found this bit of artwork to up-cycle on a Valentine card for Old Roady. I didn’t want fru-fru pink hearts or lace so stuck with browns and a muted maroon. I used a Cuttlebug die for the corners and Spellbinders Label Four die (S4-190) for the artwork.

This next card is more traditional. Screaming Valentine’s Day! The red glitter paper is from Stampin’ Up. (I think it was introduced in the Holiday mini catalog.) I cut out the hearts with my Sizzix dies. The smallest heart is stamped with a PSX stamp. (I understand they are no longer in business and the secondary market has some outrageous prices for their rare, collectible designs.) I stamped the image with VersaMark clear ink and embossed with red embossing powder. MS punch along the bottom is Doily Lace. The embossed background is done with the Craft Concepts Cottage Floral embossing folder.

Pumpkin Happy Thanksgiving Card

Several more pumpkins have appeared in my house since I posted about our love of all things pumpkin!

I’ve started to put together Thanksgiving cards, so in keeping with the pumpkin theme, I used my Cuttlebug Pumpkin Spice (37-1822) cut and emboss set. I trimmed off the leaf and vine and used just the pumpkin.

The green background is Core’dinations paper embossed with the Crafts Concepts Cottage Floral embossing folder then sanded. I stamped the inside with a Happy Thanksgiving stamp.

Earlier this month I read about an October Challenge to post every day. I’m not participating as a blogger, but I have found some great blogs that I’ll be sharing with you from time to time.

If you’ve enjoyed the Unlock Your Creativity posts I’ve been doing on Wednesdays, check out chatting at the sky. Emily is truly inspiring. Below are two of her posts that struck a cord with me. Enjoy!
