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.
For those of us who make handmade cards, we know we can never have too many in the birthday category. I think these are the most fun to make because there is always some element of fun and whimsy involved. Today’s project is pretty clean and simple, but I’ll show you again how movement and color can make all the difference. I used a set from Sizzix called Birthday Wishes along with the balloons from Avery Elle’s Balloons stamp set.
Lately, I’ve been working with vellum a lot on my cards. The elegant translucence is so pretty and calming. After working with a lot of bright, rich colors for the holidays, I thought it would be nice to lighten it up a bit. We probably all have many thank you cards to send out, so today’s project is a thank you card set using some thick vellum and a stamp from Hero Arts.
Stamp sets with animals on them are very versatile. They’re great for all kinds of card themes such as birthdays, encouragement and friendship. I also like to add them to baby-themed cards since you need all the cuteness you can get with these. For today’s project, I borrowed a few animals from Avery Elle’s Peek A Boo pals set to create a little welcome home card for a new baby.
