Tuesday with Tara (take 234) Valentine’s Day Minis

Tuesday, February 11th, 2020

Happy Tuesday!

Today I’m sharing with you a little throwback of some mini Valentines I made a few years ago!   The small size reminds me of classroom valentines from childhood- I hope you like them!

Since I’ve been working on some ATC’s lately, I thought it would be fun to make some Valentines minis!

I started with a base of watercolor cardstock that had already been inked up with Color Burst and trimmed them down to size (these are slightly wider than a standard ATC).  I used a lot of little bits that were left from previous projects, like die cut words & hearts and book paper.  Sequins & text stickers are tiny details that add to these minis!

The button “flair” on this one was something I designed as part of our wedding favors, I love finding ways to work them into my art!

As this mini featured a larger heart, I chose a simple black Prima flower and a big gold blingy center for it.

I had fun with these cuties, and they would be a great way to make up a bunch of coordinated, but not exactly the same, Valentines for a group of friends!  How fun it would be to give some out at a galentines party if you are single… or they could easily be mounted on a card base so you have room to include a sentiment inside!

 

inky hugs,

Cutieasaurus…MFT Stamps!

Saturday, February 1st, 2020

Hello and welcome back!  Laurie with you today to share a super cute, Valentine-ish card with you.  I recently order the Cutieasaurus Stamp Set and co-ordinating dies. This is not a new set but I’ve had my eyes on it for awhile and just couldn’t resist any longer!

I created the background on a circle die cut. I used the MFT Cloud Stencil to add some clouds and blended a bit of green onto the bottom. I stamped, coloured and die cut the images from the set and adhered them to the circle using foam adhesive and liquid glue.

To add a bit more interest, I added the scene onto a Fancy Scalloped Circle die from Lawn Fawn. I used Whisper cardstock from Gina K Designs. This is one of my favourite neutral colours!

I adhered my little scene onto a white card base that I ran through with a diagonal stripe embossing folder. The sentiment comes from the Cutieasaurus set and was white heat embossed onto the same grey cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out with a banner die set.

I added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the hearts and dots of the dinos as well as a few white gel pen details.  I’m so happy with the way this card turned out. I adore this set!

Thanks for dropping in!  Have a great day and weekend!

A Warm and Feathered Valentines

Sunday, December 15th, 2019

Hi crafty friends and welcome back. It’s Sandi here and today I’ve created a fun Valentine’s card to share with you using My Favorite things products and Copic Markers called a Warm and Feathered Valentines.


Yeah, I’m so excited to tell you that Scrap ‘N Stamp has Copic Markers Back in stock for all your colouring adventures.

A Warm and Feathered Valentines

I started by blending Distress Oxides for the background. Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry. Then I placed the Lots of Hearts Stencil over this and used the darkest color, Picked Raspberry to blend in some hearts. When the ink was dry, I splatted a bit of white paint to give the illusion of snow.

The final step for the background, I white heat embossed the snowflakes and sentiment.

I took advantage of the recent Memory Box Die sale and scooped up these Alpine Trees which I die cut to create my snow covered trees and frosty mountain. The white background really helps to make that little owl POP.

Finally, I stamped my owl in copic friendly Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored him with my Copic Markers and then die cut him out with the coordinating dies.

The sentiment set I used, Birdie Brown greetings is currently out of stock so I have linked to Greetings Galore which is a similar set and has lots of different sentiments you could use on this card.

That’s it for me today, hope you enjoyed the project. I have linked the supplies I used for A Warm and Feathered Valentines card below for you and until next time, Happy Stamping
