It’s December… but not too early to think about Valentine’s Day!
But really…the pink and red scream valentine but I actually made this as a thank you
for my girlfriend for picking me up at the airport! I just left it blank on the inside.
Here is a great sentiment to let someone know you are thinking of them…
Just a clean and simple card that is so cute and easily mailable:)
And….duplicatable for Valentine’s Day. You could mindlessly die cut a ton of blank white puzzle pieces and pop them into a template in your stamparatus, and stamp them really quickly. I did that with my Octopus in this video- check it out HERE – shows how to do it!
OH! I will do a quick video on how I am envisioning this but no time this morning…
heading out to hang with the my stampin’ gang at class!!!

Peek thru the Middle card using the beautiful Frosted Floral Suite and the Treat Time Stamp Set.
I used the Treat Time Stamp Set to do the sentiment. It’s a great set with so many greetings!
The little dots of Pineapple Punch come from the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set.
Here is one I did with another sentiment from Treat Time.

I have a video for you today using the Flourish Filigree Stamp Set and the Pretty Label Punch.
I loved how Judy May placed a little bit of ribbon off the bottom of the tag on one of her cards.
I was inspired to do the same, doesn’t it add so much to the card?
Below is the Real Red/Silver version in landscape position but with the stamp in the same place on the Stamparatus.
I made up a few different versions but only had to get the stamp placement done once on the Stamparatus!
Here is the Thank You card I did for my mother-in-law’s passing last month.
Measurements for all three cards:
Card Base for the Red and the Elegant Eggplant 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on 8-1/2″ side and the Card Base for the Black/Gold 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″
The next layer in from the card base is 4″ x 5-1/4″(gold/silver/eggplant)
The stamped panel is 3-1/2″ x 5″
Today is my mom’s birthday, and the image on this card is so fitting.
We had a milk can my mom refurbished way back when I was a kiddo.
It sat in a corner of the kitchen, and it was the “extra” chair pulled up when we needed it.
I sent my mom her birthday card over the weekend, and then made this card on Monday.
Now, I wish I had made this into her birthday card! She would have gotten a kick out of it:)
I used the new Tin Tile Embossing Folder for the Smoky Slate background panel.
I then sponged it lightly with Basic Gray ink.
I used the my Stampin’ Blends- Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Crumb Cake.
Of gosh, I missed two little green leaves on the image…will have to fix that!
Of course, I ran the image through the Subtle Embossing Folder- my favorite technique!
It’s just the perfect way to add a little something to finish off a card.
I even did something on the inside- ask my girls, I always forget to finish off the inside on class cards…lol.
