When creating a card, I usually start with a plain card base and add all the embellishments on top. For today’s project, I’ll show you a fun way to make the plain card the superstar with a simple die set.
Valentine’s Day is for couples to show their love and sometimes even an engagement ring. I created this project today using the Sizzix Sparkle die and stamp set from Jen Long. It has a modern style heart with lots of sparkly additions.
Did you ever try cutting around a circle-shaped stamp yourself with just scissors? It’s not always so easy. For today’s project, I’m using an older stamp set from Basic Grey with some really nice circle-shaped stamps. To help me cut them out, I’ll be using a fun tool from We R Memory Keepers called the Circle Spin & Trim.
Having a small stack of very basic greeting cards around for last minute occasions is always helpful. Maybe a friend needs some encouragement or your sister got a promotion—you have a card ready to go!
Do you have a friend or loved one that lives far away? What a perfect opportunity to send a handwritten note to say hello. Sure, emails and texts are definitely quicker, but the old-fashioned elegance of sitting down to write cannot compare.

Bright watercolors that let you stay in the lines without heat embossing? Count me in! For today’s project, I wanted to try Nuvo’s Aqua Flow pens. They are basically highly pigmented liquid watercolors in an easy to use pen. The colors offered are so bold and bright, I definitely had to include flowers.
