A Dandelion Wishes Valentine!

For Valentine's Day  I thought I would show a little love to one of the darling sets in the Annual Catalog! Dandelion Wishes is definitely a favorite of mine because I have many memories of me and my own children making wishes on dandelions (and because it's adorable)!



This is the perfect stamp set for Valentine's Day, Anniversary, Get Well or even birthdays! After stamping the dandelion images with Smoky Slate Ink on Pool Party Cardstock, I quickly sprinkled it with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder and embossed it with the Heat Tool. I used White Craft Ink and a Sponge Dauber to highlight the dandelions. Then I sponged around the white ink with Pool Party Ink- lightly at one end, and gradually getting darker towards the other end. I added a tiny little heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies to the center of one of the dandelions to make this card a Valentine's Day Card, but you could leave that off for other occasions! I colored over the heart with Wink of Stella to give it some shine, and then flicked more Wink of Stella over the whole card, just for good measure!

Thanks for stopping by, and happy Valentine's Day!!

January 2020 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Projects!

The January Paper Pumpkin is full of hearts, flowers and all of the accessories to make the sweetest projects!  And the best part? They all come together in a snap!  Another great thing about the January Kit is that you can make gifts and cards for Valentine's Day or many other occasions! 



And guess what?!! The kit coordinates with the Heart Punch Pack! So I was able to punch white scalloped hearts and layer them behind the hearts included in the kit!


These cute little treat holders are perfect for all of your valentines! You can give them to your kids, coworkers, neighbors etc! I swapped punched out hearts from the From my Heart Designer Series Paper to give these little treat holders more traditional Valentine colors.

Monday Montage Week #157


It's time for another Monday Montage Blog Hop!  And happy February to you all! We are so happy you are here! We've got some great projects to share with you today! Have you seen the Parisian Blossoms Suite yet? It is so gorgeous! The card I am sharing features products from this suite and it's perfect for Valentine's Day or a special anniversary!




There is a lot of texture on this card! I used the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder on the Cherry Cobbler Layer, and the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder on the Crumb Cake Layer. The Blossoms image is stamped in Soft Suede Ink, then embossed with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder to make it pop! You can find all of the supplies at the bottom of this post.

Here is a close up of all the texturey (is that a word?) goodness!!
