Versatile Valentine

Woohoo, the weekend is here!

I have happily been able to enjoy some crafting time this weekend and I was in the mood for LOVE. Valentines seemed to be on my mind, so I decided to pull out my red and pink paper and see what I could come up with.  I did make a few Valentines so I will be sure to share these with you over the next few days.

This first one is really just a one layer card with a few extra paper strips and some ribbon:  d67bf731-e8a7-42ad-b3da-4c3df0a6ca78_zpsjes9jkld

As you can probably see, I have yet again used the Snuggles and Smooches Stamp set! I sure do love that set! I think this valentine could easily be used for your special someone or maybe even your niece, nephew, child or anyone you love to snuggle with! The tiny strips of paper are from the Stacked with Love DSP. That paper pack sure has come in handy for my valentine cards! I punched out the Snuggles and Smooches stamp with my 2 inch paper punch and then did some quick heart punches. The adorable embossed part of the card is from the new Happy Heart Textured Impressions Embossing folder.

I got most of my inspiration for this card over at Freshly Made Sketches. Here is their sketch for this week:FMS Final 170-001 I am entering my card in the challenge for FMS170!

This was a fun card to make and really took no time at all.  I will share a few more valentines over the next few days so be sure to check back for some creativity inspiration!

Snuggles and Smooches with Hello You Thinlits Love card

Hello Crafty Friends!

I have been so busy lately and never had time to post anything. I just spent the long weekend at a girl scout camp reunion and we had the best time!! We actually spent the night at our camp and the memories and laughter were ongoing. Then I had to help my mom out with some medical concerns. Thankfully, she is feeling better now but I am staying with her for a while to make sure all is well.

I had a little time to craft recently so I made this cute love card that could be used for valentine’s day or any day!Snuggles of Love

I am still in LOVE with the Snuggles and Smooches stamp set. Isn’t it funny how that happens sometimes? We find a certain stamp set that we just keep wanting to use. I paired this set with the new Hello You thinlits. There are four different words in the group and I used the You. It also comes with Hello, Happy and Thanks. There are lots of ways to use these thinlits! Some of other fun parts of this card include the new Happy Hearts Textured Impression folder and the washi tape to make the patterned border. Both of these washi tapes are from stampin’ Up and the blue one is part of the Every Day Adventure Project Life Accessory pack.

I am entering this card over at the Fusion Card Challenge since the current theme is Two Hearts!

I was no where near a computer on Tuesday so here is a very late post of the current weekly deals!
