Love Ya Silly - Simple Valentines

Do you usually create valentine cards for your children's school party?   Here is a really quick, simple and inexpensive idea!   With this adorable Love Ya Silly stamp set and 4 sheets of cardstock, some scraps and embellishments you have on hand, you can create 18 VERY EASY Valentine cards in less than an hour!

These are just flat 4 x 4 cards.  They do not open - just like most of the Valentine Cards you purchase for school parties.  I cut my Black 12x12 cardstock into 4x4 squares.  Then I cut the White Daisy Cardstock into 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 squares.   I used my embossing tool to score 1/4" around the edge of the White Daisy piece to give it a little added dimension.   Next, I stamped the cute little monsters and the sentiment onto the White Daisy piece and added various embellishments.  SIMPLE!!   How quick was that??!  And they are sooo cute!

I used Pear, Lagoon and Sunset inks to get away from the traditional pink and red!  These make cute Valentine Cards that even your little guy would want to give!

More Quick and Easy Valentine Cards!

 Happy Friday!  It's a cold, dreary rainy day here in Middle Tennessee.   The kind of day that makes you want to snuggle up on the couch under a warm blanket and watch a good movie.  I had to work today so maybe I'll get to do the snuggle thing tonight.

I wanted to take a moment and share some more quick Valentine Cards that I made.   I used the stamp set that is included in the Heartstrings Cardmaking Workshop on the Go kit for these little 3x3 cards.   I added the Stuck On You Puffies and my other favorite - Shimmer Trim!

The Heartstrings WOTG kit (G1090) includes a D-size stamp, Pixie Extra Thick Twine, Stuck on You Puffies, 4 sheets of cardstock and one sheet of Heartstrings B&T paper, 15 White Cards and Envelopes and an instruction guide to make 15 cards (shown on the instruction guide below). I purchased the kit mainly because I liked the stamp set and it is ONLY Available with kit!  Getting the puffies, cards and envelopes, and extra thick twine made it a great deal too since I didn't think I'd get around to actually making the cards in the kit!

OK.... now it's off to my craft room I go! I've got a little bit of time before I snuggle down for the night!

Brushstrokes Valentine

I was hoping to get alot of crafty things done over the long weekend but alas, I didn't make it into my craft room until about 8pm last night!  We spent the majority of the weekend in Kentucky packing some things to prepare for my MIL's mom to Tennessee.  It has been a long process and we still have a long way to go!  We left Kentucky before noon yesterday so got home at a decent time after unloading the things we brought back.  I was excited to find a little bit of creative time before heading back to another work week!

I have been wanting to use this new Brushstrokes stampset for some time now but it seemed like there was always something else I needed to do first!  I also used one of our little mini's - Mini Valentine. I used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch! for my card.  I love the way it turned out!  

I used Hollyhock and Pixie inks for my pinks.  I also incorporated two of my favorite new products - Pixie Extra Thick Twine and Stuck On You Puffies!  These Puffies will only be available through March 31st so I need to grab some more before they are gone!

Thanks for stopping by!   If you love seeing Valentine cards, I'll have more to share later this week!
