Happy Valentine's Day - 3 Cards to Share

Hi everyone and Happy Monday and Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I got to spend some time in the craft room and I have three Valentine's cards to share with you today so I'll get right to it.





For my first card, I decided to cut this adorable couple out using the Sweethearts cartridge. The heart is also cut out using Sweethearts. Before attaching the dress to the image, I ran it through my Cuttlebug using my Swiss Dots embossing folder to give it some texture. Then, I put all the pieces together and did some doodling using my white gel pen. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from K&Co.'s new Valentines stack. For some finishing touches, I added a bow, pearls, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. My sentiment is from My Creative Time's You Hade Me at Chocolate stamp set. I am also entering this card in the My Pink Stamper Blog Hop Challenge. The challenge was to use black with your favorite colors. What do you think?





For my second card, I decided to create a little scene card using the Sweethearts cartridge and Create a Critter. The tree is from Create a Critter. The couple is from Sweethearts. I used a Martha Stewart border punch to create the fence and then the flowers are also from Create a Critter. All measurements are saved in my Gypsy if you want them, just e-mail me. I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from K&Co. For some finshing touches, I added pearls and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. My sentiment is from My Creative Time's You Hade Me at Chocolate stamp set. What do you think?





For my third card, I cut out this adorable ladybug from the Birthday Bash cartridge. I used my "hide countour" feature on my Gypsy to hide the face and then I used my Princess Face Assortment face stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps for the face. I put all the pieces together and then did some doodling with my white gel pen. I also cut out a heart from the Sweethearts cartridge and adhered it with dimensionals to the ladybug's "hands." My card base was created using SU cardstock. My DP is from K&Co. For some finishing touches, I added a bow and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. My sentiment is from My Creative Time's You Hade Me at Chocolate stamp set. What do you think?

Phew, well, that's it from me today. If you made it this far, thanks for sticking with me :) I had a lot of Valentine's Day cards to make and I was way behind :) I hope you enjoyed my cards today. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and a wonderful Valentine's Day :)
