Valentines Cards

Over the next three weeks I will be sharing handmade Valentine Cards I have made for friends and family.  I'm not going to give away which cards are for who, because I never know who's snooping on my blog and might see their card before they receive it. πŸ₯°

For the two cards I'm showing today, I used the same layout, papers, and colors, but different images. The image used in this card is an old retired Stampin' Up! card called "Pun Fun".

I stamped the image and colored it in with Copic markers then used Spellbinders Nestabilities to cut a plain square panel out.  I then popped that panel up on a heart panel also cut with a  Spellbinder's die. Then using a larger square die, I cut a third panel out of pink.

For the background, I embossed a white card stock panel with a heart Cuttlebug folder and then adhered that panel to a black card panel to make everything pop.  I finished the card by wrapping a think pink ribbon through two of the open hearts and tying it with a bow.

My next card uses all the same dies, but a different embellishment, image, and color.

The image in this card was a free stamp I received when I purchased a card making magazine years ago.  I don't normally purchase magazines (who needs to when everything is free on the web now?), but when the stamp set is the price of the magazine, why not?

I followed all the same principles that I did in making the first card, except this time I used a red panel, and I added a cute red heart button.  I put the sentiment on a tiny tag.

Whenever I create a card I really like, sometimes while all the same supplies are already out, I'll quickly make a few more cards.  If you ever need to mass produce cards, this is a great way to save time, rather than making every card unique.

  5. These are so cute Amy! I'm loving that hearts frame die! I have that stamp set too (the freebie from the magazine!). And I recently bought another one because it had a set from the Penny Black illustrator Margaret Sherry (who sadly passed away last year). I ended up getting it from Ebay because it was sold out in the store and I was didn't get it when it was available. But I got it for a cheaper price on ebay.

    1. Thanks Ellie! How fun you have the same stamp. Ebay is a great place to look for stamps.

  6. How cute! I pinned this! Thanks so much for linking up with me at my #AThemedLinkup 10 for All Things Love and Valentine’s Day, open until February 10.

  7. These are just gorgeous, Amy! You should give the recipients small shadow boxes so they can frame them after they read them!


  8. These cards are so cute Amy. I've tried making cards but I always add too much or think it's missing something. Next time, I'll just copy yours! Have a wonderful week!

    1. Thanks Chrissy! Go ahead, case them! That’s a great way to develop your card making skills.

  9. Just lovely Amy! I know the recipients will treasure them as little works of art!


  10. So very sweet! Thanks for playing along with us at CASology!
