Another quick one for today!  This is a super simple and fun Valentine’s Day card I made to show off my newly acquired skill of crocheting hearts.  I have been making a whole bunch of these cute crochet hearts in a ton of different colors.  If you know basic crochet stitches, these hearts are very easy to make and only take a few minutes each.  If you are interested in crocheting your own hearts, Skip to my Lou and Julia Crossland offer two great tutorials, which I used on my hearts.

As for the card, there is no stamping involved.  The sentiment was cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  The rest of the card was made with two dies.  Everything but the card base was cut from my paper scraps.  I am trying my hand at the CAS (clean and simple) style with this card.  I hope you enjoy it!  Thanks for looking.

Anniversary Card

Here is a card I made for my Husband for our 13th wedding anniversary.  I cased this beautiful design by Amy Rysavy that I found on Pinterest.  I love everything about Amy’s card and for once actually had the same designer paper she used.   However, I decided to change up the color scheme since I felt the original colors were more suited for a Valentine’s Day card.  I used a variety of heart punches and heart images cut on my Silhouette Cameo.  Thanks for looking!

  • Stamps: PTI (Just the Ticket)
  • Paper: PTI (2008 Bitty Box Basics, Rustic Cream, Kraft); Echo Park (For the Record Background Text); Jillibean Soup (Dutch Mustard).
  • Ink: Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink (Chestnut Roan, Pumpkin Spice)
  • Accessories: The Twinery Baker’s Twine (Cappuccino, Honeydew); PTI Ticket Border Die; Silhouette America (Ticket, Large Heart); Fiskars Punch (heart); EK Success Punch (heart); Unknown Company Punch (small heart).
