Yay! It’s Time for Valentines

Yay! It’s almost Valentine’s Day … close enough to post some V-Day cards. I love making Valentines. I don’t know what it is, but this is my favorite card-making holiday. Here’s what I’ve been working on:

The resist technique is an oldie but goodie, but I was inspired by a video from Jennifer McGuire for Hero Arts. Check it out. Stamps are all from Hero Arts. The numbers background was stamped using


and embossed in white. I used some


heart punches to create a stencil, then inked over with Hero Arts soft inks.

Next is a card using a beautiful and intricateĀ heart dieĀ from Hero Arts:

The background was made with a


embossing folder.

And a somewhat different take using the same die:

The paper is from BasicGrey and the scallop border punch is from Stampin’ Up!.

We still have a few days left before Valentine’s Day, so stay tuned for more cards.
Thanks for stopping by!
