Can you believe it's almost Valentines? One of my favorite holidays, sending love to those special people in my life is a joy!

Many of those 'special people' in my life are young, and Poppystamps has some new Whittles just right to bring a smile!

Whittle Unicorn comes with separate mane and horn allowing some creativity, not to mention depth. It also comes with a double heart, which when cut is the heart plus outline!

I cut the hearts die from several glitter papers, and arranged them around the Whittle Circle Frame. You can see one around the unicorn's horn too!.

Lots of framing and foam lifts, really zooms in on the main attraction... that wreath of unicorn joy! 

Happy Valentines, and Happy crafting!

Can you believe it's February already?  My thoughts are on sending Valentines this week and maybe yours are too!   If you find yourself surrounded by die cut hearts I hope you'll join our challenge.  You could win a $20 gift certificate just for playing along and the timing is perfect because a new release is in the house!

The Scribble Daisy Heart Frame has been a favorite for a while so I was excited to break it out this month!  The center has a clean outline heart, perfect for embellishing or writing a message on, that's surrounded by pretty petaled flowers.

I topped the center heart in the frame with the Hugs Heart die cut.  All of the cut outs in the Scribble Daisy Heart Frame are inlaid so this card is smooth and flat.

The flowers are inlayed in shades of pink to give some depth and dimension to the die cut images.

To add a little interest I added some layers using the Pointed Square Frames.  I repeated the aqua blue color in a slightly darker shade on the outside of the Scribble Daisy Frame.  The clean lines and piercing give a lush look to this square shaped card.

I hope you find some time to make today!   Hugs!

Graceful Heart Frame
by Candice Crawford

IMG_3189

Hey there crafty friends! Candice here, back on the blog to share another Valentine's Day card. 

Today's project uses the Graceful Heart Frame that was released last year and still available for purchase. This die is so stunning and is perfect for doing a paper piecing technique. 

IMG_3135

To get started, you will need to first die cut the Heart Frame image 3 times using Metallic Gold, Red Glitter, and Dark Green cardstock. Next, you will remove the gold inside pieces of the image from the frame and simply adhere the frame to your white A2 card base with some liquid adhesive.

If you own Stick It adhesive, you could apply the Stick It to each of the sheets of cardstock, before die cutting the frame multiple times.  This would allow for the frame and each of the inside pieces to become a sticker and make it easier to paper piece the card together.

Next you will adhere the coordinating red glitter heart and large leaf pieces into the gold frame outline using some liquid adhesive. Once all of the glitter pieces are adhered. You will then adhere the coordinating green cardstock pieces for the smaller leaf images into the gold frame.

Lastly you will stamp the sentiment Happy Valentine's Day from the Valentine's Fun stamp set in Versafine Onxy Black ink and your card is done. Simple, quick and stunning! If you are intending to make several Valentines' Day cards this season, this design can be mass produced. 

I hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Until next time....Happy Crafting!

Big Hedgehog
by Candice Crawford

IMG_3188

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. 

IMG_3098

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. 

IMG_3100

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. 

IMG_3101

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. 

CU2

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!
