Big Hedgehog

Hi there crafty friends, hope you are all having a good week. Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. Have you started on your Valentine's Day cards? If  not, today's project share may be the perfect inspiration to get you in the craft room to make a card or two.

To create this card, I began with creating my background image. I stenciled red hearts onto a piece of 5 x 7 inch white cardstock with the Memory Box Drifting Hearts Stencil and some Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink.

Next I cut the stenciled background with the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die. Then adhered both the frame and the inside piece to a 4.25 x 5.5 top folding black note card with some liquid adhesive.

Then I die cut the Big Hedgehog Left and Big Hedgehog Right images from both a kraft and dark chocolate colored cardstock. I removed the hedgehog's main from the kraft die cut piece by fussy cutting the image with my paper snips. Then adhered the fussy cut kraft image onto the dark chocolate image with some liquid adhesive. 

Next I die cut a large heart image from some vellum cardstock, then adhered the heart and both paper pieced hedgehogs onto the stenciled heart background with some foam tape. Lastly I stamped and heat embossed the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock with some white embossing powder. I then attached the sentiment strip to card with some foam tape.

And there you have it, your card is done! I hope you enjoyed today's project share and found inspiration to make your own Valentine's Day cards. Until next time, happy crafting!

Nuts About You
By Jeanne Jachna

CU2

Hi friends and thanks for stopping by!  I hope life is treating you well and you're taking time to enjoy the simple things in life.   For me that's a homecooked meal, walking the dog, or making with bright colors and cute images that just make me smile! 

Side

The new Lattice Plate die makes a beautiful background for just about any card.  I topped it with a Pointed Oval Frame to "set the scene" for my Valentine card.   I cut the inside of the oval from light blue card stock to create a sky.  Next I layered some green paper that I cut with the Wave Trio and then cut it again with the same oval so that the shape matches the inside of the frame perfectly.

CU3

I cut Whittle Hearts in ombre shades of red and pink to create the foliage for the Whittle Tree Border.  Little circles or other shapes can be used to add color and foliage for different times of year.

A Whittle Forest Squirrel was cut from kraft card stock.  I used a marker to add a little detail on the tail and down it's back.   The squirrel is holding a little heart and the "I'm Nuts about you" sentiment is added along the top of the card. 

Whittle-Squirrel-Valentine

I think you could recreate this scene for each of the four seasons simply by changing the colors and the foliage shapes.  I love products that are versatile so I can get more use from them!    Have a great day!

Shake it up, Valentine
by Nancy Penir

Hi and welcome to my post! Nancy here, and the craft room table is filled with hearts! A sign of the season of love, for sure! And who doesn't need some love right now?

Hearts and flowers... what says, 'I love you' better? And the Poppystamps shop is full hearts!

I gathered my goodies, knowing my card was to be a shaker.

The shaker heart is filled with valentine sequins and hearts from my stash, and fit perfectly over the pattern paper from Memory Box. Products will be listed below, and will take you to the shops for purchase.

You can see how I popped up the Curve Background die cuts, the height of the the heart shaker.

Unicorn and Rainbow Valentine!
by Jeanne Jachna

CU1

Hi friends!  Have you noticed there's some new dies in the Poppystamps store? I think my favorite this release is the new Whittle Unicorn!  Isn't it ADORABLE?    You'll love all the new designs that you can see here!

Side-r1

The mane and little horn are separate dies so you can cut them from different material if you like.  I double cut the mane to add a layer of gold glitter for some sparkle and shine.  

CU2

What goes perfect with unicorns? A rainbow of course!  I divided the width of my card (5.25") by the number of stripes I needed to fill the panel with hearts (6) and came up with 0.875".  I cut the strips slightly smaller than 1" wide and then adhered them together on their reverse side.   I trimmed the assembled panel to fit my card front and adhered it to the card base. 

CU3

I adhered the hanging hearts at various lengths at the seam where the color block strips meet.   The background colors are softer shades of the brights inside the die cut hearts. 

Stra-1

What I love most about crafting is that I can make a special card for all the one of a kind people in my life.  I think I know a princess that might like this one.

Love in Bloom
by Michele K. Henderson

IMG_7858-wm

 

Hello Friends!

Love is starting to bloom early this year with a few brand new sweet little dies from Poppystamps! New whittle animals and romantic hearts combine for adorable Valentine notes and cards. Take a look!

IMG_7853-wm

Making this easy breezy CAS card was a snap with the brand new Whittle Forest Squirrel, the Whittle Tree Border, and the Confetti Heart Grid. I added the trees then cut out the Confetti Heart Grid with different shades of green card stock. Then I added the squirrel with little bits of foam pop dots.

IMG_7851-wm

Did I say it was super CAS? And super sweet too. It reminds me of the tiny Valentines I used to share as a kid.

Sending Hedge-Hugs
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0068

Hi friends! Poppystamps has some new sets in the store, and thought I'd show you 2 of my favorites. They're a couple of hedge hogs, done whittle style, and they die cut right and left. Just perfect for Valentines, or weddings and or anniversaries when posed kissing! Let's take a look!

DSC_0066_wm

I just loved setting my scene on Memory Box's Sunset Blush Washi Tape. So much so, I did a trio of sending hugs cards using the floral Washi.

On the front card I posed the kissing Hedge Hogs over Poppystamps' Wavy Heart. 

DSC_0053

I die cut the heart in several shades of pink and red, and assembled my heart like a puzzle.

DSC_0064_wm

On the third card I used the washi covered card stock to die cut the heart, and kept the washi with waves in the design. There's so much you can do with large washi rolls. I played with colored cardstock for fun, and loved them all!

DSC_0057

For the first card I used grey cardstock

I also fussy cut a few of the floral designs and popped them up with foam at the top.

I also popped up my hedge hogs with foam.

I hope you check out the store for some fun new dies. They're sure to become favorites for Valentines or any card you make. 

Happy New Year, and happy crafting!
