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!!!

Oh, how I love Blackberry Bliss although I did call it Blackberry Mess last week at class
since it seems to travel all over the place when we are using it…LOL.
I used the die with the lovely floral design.
I simply used the one die above to cut out the flower and
then another die below to cut out the bottom around the leaves to get a free standing flower.
I also die cut Mossy Meadow leaves and adhered them to the Blackberry Bliss leaves to give the contrast.
The Layered Leaves embossed panel sets the stage for the card. To jazz up the focal image,
I embossed the sentiment in gold, added a vellum stitched oval, a scalloped gold foil border, and scattered some gold sequins.
The Wood Textures DSP with the Gold Metallic Edged Ribbon gives the card a shabby chic feel,
don’t you think?
Simple stamped images finish off the inside of the card:)
Here is another Botanical Bliss card using the Tufted Embossing Folder- LOVE that folder!
I die cut the birds thinlit inside the Stitched Shapes Framelit at the same time.
I put some dimension behind the die cut with some tiny pieces of a dimensional.
I used some retired white ribbon to go through the label:)
The line of leaves image worked wonderfully on the inside.
I combined the SU Still Night with the SU Winter Woods Bundles to make this card.
Although the Still Night has Christmas sentiments, I added a Happy Birthday sentiment from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.
I stamped my owl with Memento black ink on Sahara Sand.
I colored the owl with Light Crumb Cake and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends.
I colored the eyes with a Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencil.
I was inspired by the card below card on Pinterest- I believe Mary K. Jones made it:)
I used the pine trees in the stamp set instead of the tall trees, and I mounted my Blueberry Bushel on Night of Navy cardstock to
keep the dark night sky as the background. I also stamped and die cut the owl image instead of the other owl in the set.
