My Valentines

One of my half hearted New Year's resolutions was to be better about posting on my blog. That's not really working out so far, but I'm going to keep trying. One of my problems is that I forget to take pictures of things before I give them out. For example, I made some cute little baskets and filled them with goodies for my girls and their families. Well at least I took pictures of the Valentine cards I made.
This is my grandson's card and for it I used the Paisley cart (I love this cart). The top part was stamped with a stamp from the SU Happy Heart set then heat embossed in clear. The paper for the elephant is from SEI, Playday collection. The sentiment is stamped from sets by Stampendous and The Paper Studio.
This is my granddaughter's card, again cut from the Paisley cart. I used Fun Flock on the kitty and added some tiny rhinestones from the Micheal's $1 bin to the crown. The sentiment is a Studio G stamp and the flower is Imaginisce.
This one has no Cricut cuts. The stamp is from the $1 bin at JoAnn's, and unfortunately I don't know the company because I didn't save the packaging. I don't want to guess and say the wrong thing. The image was cut with a classic oval Nestability then layered with a scalloped oval Nestability. The background paper is from K & Co, the WB Gypsy Baby Paper Pad. Corner stamps are Studio G and Su Close to Cocoa ink. The bottom strip was created with a Martha Stewart punch and ribbon from Michael's. Forgive me, but I don't know the names of all the different punches or I would list them. Also, I colored the image with Copic markers which I am still just learning how to use. I need a lot more practice!
I have a couple more cards, but think I'll do separate posts for them, this is long enough as it is.
Thanks for stopping by!
