Happy Valentine’s Day!

The title says it all! Happy Valentine’s Day to you! I’m so happy that I get to share my creativity with you every day! I love that you visit and leave comments. I have gotten to know some of you and I love that too! I guess there is a lot of love going around. Today I have two Valentine’s projects for you. The first one is a banner and the second one is a 3×3 card.

The first one up is a Valentine’s banner. I do like to make a banner from time to time as you know! I used Pool Party, Real Red and Pretty in Pink Card Stock. The flagged backgrounds for each of the panels is Real Red and Pretty in Pink. I embossed each one with the Cloudy Day Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. For the two end panels I used some More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper to make two rosettes. On top of that is a piece of Pool Party that I cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits Dies. I stamped the Love Heart in Primrose Petals and punched them out with the Full Heart Punch. Each of the letters is from the Morning Post Alphabet Stamp Set and they are also stamped in Primrose Petals. I used my Paper Snips to cut each one out and backed them with a piece of Pool Party that I cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits. All of them are then adhered to the flagged pieces with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The string is a piece of “Vintage” Real Red 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon and I punched out some more Pool Party with the Modern Label Punch and folded them in half to hang them. I really like the colors and the two larger end pieces on the banner. It looks pretty neat hanging above my craft area!

The second project is a 3×3 card that would be great to give to a special co-worker or slip into your child’s lunch. The base is Whisper White Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Pool Party with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background. Two flagged pieces of More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper are adhered behind the heart that I cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits Dies from Primrose Petals and embossed with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The heart in the center is stamped in Pool Party on Pool Party and also cut out with the framelits. The greeting is from the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set and is stamped in Primrose Petals and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. All of the elements are adhered to the background with Stampin’ Dimensionals. It’s a cute little card with a lot of wow for it’s size!

Oh, the dentist was ok yesterday, I have an infection and got some antibiotics so hopefully once they kick in the pain will subside. 🙂
