A Little Bird in Blue

This card needs something but I am not sure what. Ribbon? More layers? I used several punches and of course the ever popular Top Note Die. The sentiment is from the Four Frames stamp set and punched with the Decorative Label punch. For the buttons I punched a couple of circles of Baja Breeze and adhered them to the back of  clear buttons using Crystal Effects™ glue.
I just want to say that I miss making Valentines...sigh!

CAS Valentine

Just a CAS (clean and simple) Valentine this time. I used the Fashionable Hearts Embosslit Die to make the smaller hearts. The large heart was punched out of a piece of Whisper White that was embossed with Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. 
  The score lines were made with my new Simply Scored™ score board from Stampin' Up!™

  Did you ever try to type on the computer with a cat on your lap??? One of my DD cats thinks she has to sit on someone's lap and since I am the only one available tonight she has made herself comfortable between me and my laptop. Sheesh.....

A Couple of Valentines

 Happy Valentine's Day! Did you get anything for Valentine's Day?  I got flowers and chocolate-lots of chocolate from my DH! 
  I made 35 of these Valentines for my 5th & 6th grade Sunday school class to give to the home bound members of our church. The one on the left I made by sponging using a doily made with the new Paper Doily Sizzlets die from Stampin' Up! as a mask. The colors are actually retired colors Barely Banana and Ruby Red.
The card on the right was made with some pre-embossed paper from my stash and  a couple of punched hearts. This one was for the men so I tried not to make it too fussy. Inside I stamped the Bible verse John 3:16.

Look! I made a collage!

 Thanks to inspiration from my good friend Trisha, I made a collage. Click HERE for a great tutorial on her blog. 

I used only Stampin' Up! products  although some of the paper is retired. Most of these were scraps, mistakes, or leftover card parts. I started with a piece of ugly 12 x 12 DSP and glued pieces here and there using Tombow Liquid Glue™. A few pieces I tore to make them fit. After it was all glued down I took a Melon Mambo and Whisper White Craft spot and swiped randomly. I painted a few swipes of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint™, stamped a couple of images with Basic Gray and wheeled Music Notes. After everything was dry I cut it into card fronts and made some Valentines. 
  I have to say that once I started it was really fun and very therapeutic! So gather those scraps and make a collage!
