Happily Ever After

Hi Everyone

Michelle here from Lady of Leisure Ink - thank you Terri for having me.  Today I have a very special card using both a Julie Nutting Prima Doll and the Jeremiah guy stamp from C Thru The Woods.  I had the idea in my head for a cute couple sitting at a soda fountain sharing one drink with two straws.  This is what I came up with.

I used a file from the Silhouette online store to cut out the awning and shop front, then used a wood-grain washi tape to finish it off.  Here is a look at the inside.

I used 'Love Letters' paper and stickers from Bo Bunny for the background and sentiment.  The root beer float is also a file from the silhouette store cut using my Cameo.

I used a piece of acetate to make the widow, and cut the word 'Cafe' from some frosted vinyl.

I love how this card turned out, and whilst I made it with Valentines in mind, this would also make a great engagement or anniversary card.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Mixed Media Love

Happy Sunday!
It's Ceal here to share another Valentines card with you. Today's card is a mixed media card. I started with a cream cardstock cut to an A2 sized base and the image panel slightly smaller. I stamped my heart image from Hero Arts randomly to create my background. Next I took a Tim Holtz Stencil and some embossing paste that I colored with a distress re inker, and spread it over the hearts I wanted to pop from the stencil.  I added a thin piece of May Arts ribbon and placed the die cut "love" by Lawn Fawn on top to finish my card. 
You can find all these supplies and many more at A Scrap N Place

I Love You

Hi There! This is Kim here to share with you this CAS card uses simple dies and embossing to create an elegant and quick card.  First off I used Ectasy Crafts framed embossing folder then I used Impression Obsessions dies to cut out the heart and sentiment. I love the red glitter paper that's used for the dies. It adds a beautiful shimmer to the card. Last are some little red sequins to embellish the embossed areas.

2 Quick and Easy Valentines Day Cards

Hi Everyone

Michelle here from Lady of Leisure Ink - thanks Terri for having me.  Today I have 2 very quick and easy Valentines Day cards for you, both of these I found on Pinterest.  The first one is a really cute idea, especially if you have a large quantity to make.

Such a quick and easy card, all you need are some 'googley' eyes, a heart and some rub-on or sticky letters.

My second card is a little more elegant, and could be used as an anniversary or wedding card.

I used a fine Sharpie marker to draw the lines, some die cut hearts and a little bling.

The sticker sentiment is from Bo Bunny 'Love Letters' sticker sheet.

Thanks for stopping by today.  See you soon.
