Non-Traditional Valentine's Card...


Happy Tuesday blog friends... Today I am sharing a very non-traditional Valentines card. I was thinking green and maybe was thinking about St. Patricks day but then went way left.. LOL

This card was created using..
  • Waffle Flower Crafts: Chunky Chevron die
  • Waffle Flower Crafts: Lacy Panel die
  • Avery Elle: Sweet Swines stamp set

Create card from cardstock A2 size.

Die cut the WFC Chunky Chevron die 4 times on 4 different colors of green or you can use a different color theme. 

Adhere the Chunky Chevrons onto the card base using liquid glue. Rotate the colors and leave a hint of white in between. 

Die cut the Lacy Panel die on a piece of Vellum and adhere to the card. 

Stamp these cute images from the Sweet Swine stamp set and color using your favorite medium, I used Copic Sketch markers. I then fussy cut the images.

Add the colored images to the card using foam tape to create your scene. 

That is it... a very non-traditional Valentine's card. 


Thank you for stopping by.

Have a wonderful Tuesday.

Remember to always think outside the box... it is fun!

Happy Heart Day...


Happy Sunday everyone... I created this card yesterday and could not wait until Monday to share. I normally do not post on Sundays but here you go..

Card designed using lots of Lawn Fawn...
  • Garden Gnome dies
  • Lacy Heart Stackables dies
  • Stitched Heart Stackables dies
  • Quilted Heart Backdrop Portrait die
  • Candy Heart dies
  • How You Bean? Conversational Heart Add-on stamp set

Create card from cardstock A2 size.

Adhere a piece of colored cardstock to your card base. 

Die cut the Quilted Heart Backdrop on a different color of cardstock and adhere to your card base. Using the two colors helps highlight those cute hearts. 

Die cut the Lacy Heart Stackables and Stitched Heart Stackables on different colors of cardstock and adhere together using foam tape so you have a little dimension, now adhere this layered heart to your card base. 

Die cut this fun Garden Gnome die in all the colors you choose to create this little guy. Once he is all adhered together, add him to your heart, slightly to the side of the heart center. 

Stamp the conversational hearts out and color using the medium of your choice. I used Copic Sketch markers. Die cut the image using the coordinating die. 

Die cut the solid heart from the Candy Hearts die set and stamp this sweet sentiment from the How You Bean? Conversational Heart add-on stamp set. 

Add the hearts to the card using foam tape. 


 Nothing like a card full of hearts.... right? Lots of cute Lawn Fawn all on one card. 

That is all for today.

Have a blessed Sunday.

Happy February blog friends, this year is just going scooting along. I am starting my month with this Pink & Main card created using...

Create card from cardstock A2 size.

Cut a piece of white cardstock the size of your card front and stencil this fun new Woven Stencil. Before removing the stencil I sprinkled a little of Copic Opaque. Make sure to let dry completely before adhering to your card base.

Die cut the gum ballmachine again on acetate and again on white cardstock.

Die cut the center of the colored gum ball machine with the coordinating die.

Die cut the gumball machine again on a piece of P&M foam sheets, die cut the center of the gum ball machine.

Adhere the acetate gumball machine to the colored gum ball machine.

Add the die cut foam piece of the gumball machine to the acetate.

Add your shaker bits inside the gumball machine.

Adhere the final gumball machine die cut piece to the back and now you have a shaker.

Adhere the shaker to your card base.

You're the Best!...


How about another floral card? I think floral cards are always just fun to create with. I can't stop creating with them lately and I have a lot of flower stamps/stencils and dies, SO why not right? 

Today's card was created using...
  • Taylored Expressions: Autumn Array stamp/stencil/die set
  • Avery Elle: Finished Frames Dies
  • Misc. Designer Paper
  • Lawn Fawn Inks: (Carrot, Sunflower, Bubblegum Guava, Peacock, Fish Tank, Moonstone and Grape Jelly)
  • Taylored Expressions: Black Drip Drops
  • Mini Strips: You're the Best stamp/die
This card came out a bit different when I was stenciling the color on and picking my designer paper. Some might say well those are interesting patterns to put together, but my brain is saying how cool does that look. I think a bit wild and I know you are used to seeing traditional clean cut cards... well you will not get there here on my blog... let's get wild with color.... OK!


Create card from cardstock A2 size.

Die cut these two patterned papers using the Avery Elle Finished Frames dies and adhere to the card base using liquid glue.

Stamp the Autumn Array on white cardstock and using the coordinating stencils, ink up those blending brushes and add your ink and started to see these flowers come to life. 

Die cut the floral image using the coordinating die and add some foam tape for dimension and add it to your card. 

Stamp the sentiment and die cut using the coordinating die. Add some foam tape to the sentiment and add it to your card. 

Finishing up with a few of Taylored Expressions Drip Drops.


That is all for today... 

Thank you for stopping by.

Have a fantastic Tuesday!
