Valentines Day

Hearts And Flowers For AYSI...

It’s a new challenge at As You See It.  Fill in this blank:  My first stamp or craft tool was:  a crimper!  Or the brayer – I think I bought them at the same time.

#169 2.9.18

It was fun to bust out my crimper tool.  I ran a couple of pieces of cardstock thru the crimper before adding to my card base.  Are you familiar with a crimper?  It’s a tool that corrugates paper.  It’s really a cool way to get some texture on your card so one would think I would use it more!

For my image, I stamped the lovely little bouquet and then colored with my chalks.  I added the sentiment and linen thread after I added a bit of blue chalk around the image.  It’s hard to see the blue but in real life it gives a nice antiquey feel to the card.

February Valentine background colors

I used a bit of both the colors and the background.  I started by using some versamark ink and a heart filled vine to stamp in the middle of the card.

A Love Of Chevrons...

Today’s fun card is for the Sunday Stamps color challenge. The colors are dark and light brown, grey and dark red.  Perfect for making a masculine Valentine’s Day card.

I have had this chunky chevron die and thought it would be perfect to showcase these colors. I wanted some pops of color against a white background. So I die cut the cover plate in white and adhered it to a white card base.

Www.seejanestamp.com ss 1 (554x640)

Then I die cut the chevrons out of SU! sahara sand, chocolate chip, and cherry cobbler and added two of each color to the white frame. I stamped the sentiment in grey (but it looks black) and added a couple of enamel dots and rhinestones.

Lots O' Hearts...

Welcome to a new As You See It challenge! We have another fun sketch for you and as you can see I switched it up just a bit!

#122 Feb 5 16

I die cut all these hearts using my PTI hearts cover plate. I also used the plate to help me place the hearts in such a perfect pattern.

I black heat embossed the sentiment and added the button and silver cording.

House Of Cards Shape Up Challenge...

Hello all! Today starts a new challenge at the House of Cards. This challenge is a fun challenge that requires you to make a shaped card and not have to get in shape!  LOL!  Use any shape but rectangles or squares!

2 HOC February 2016 shaped cards no squares or rectangles

So in honor of Valentine’s Day, I made a heart!

I started by die cutting a heart shape out of pink pirouette cardstock. Then I die cut a smaller heart out of white which I inked up a bit with real red, pink pirouette and a little white ink.

Www.seejanestamp.com hoc feb 1 (616x640)

I ran this heart thru my SU! happy hearts embossing folder to add some texture and then popped it up on the larger heart.  I stamped this cute sentiment and added it to the hearts along with some bling and a candy dot!

Love Is In The Air...

Happy Monday! Today’s card is for the Freshly Made Sketches sketch. I thought it was a fun sketch and found that it was a bit more difficult to come up with something than I thought!

I started by using the heart clouds from the SU! Sky is the Limit stamp set and stamping a couple of them.

Www.seejanestamp.com fms 1 (566x640)

Then I die cut love three times and stacked them up. I added the rest of the sentiment and layered everything.

Two Valentine Hearts...

Today’s card is pretty CAS.  I played along with the  Sunday Stamps sketch and the Paper Players valentine theme. 

I started by die cutting two sketchy hearts – one in blushing bride cardstock and one in blushing bride glimmer paper. This glimmer paper is beautiful but I am never excited by all the glitter everywhere!

Www.seejanestamp.com ss pp 1 (542x640)

I die cut a curve on some white cardstock and added the sentiment. I adhered everything straight to the card base and was done!

Notched hearts...

Happy almost Valentine’s Day!  Today is my last valentine card for the season!  I found a die from SugarPea Designs that cuts this wonderful heart journal card.  So I pulled out some of my dsp from the Simon Says Stamp February card kit and paired it with some SU! dsp to create this card.

Www.seejanestamp.com 7 (509x640)

I used my heart to heart punch from SU! to get these fun hearts and added a sentiment from a SugarPea Designs special delivery stamp set.  I had some valentine rub ons that I added under the sentiment for something extra.  Of course, a little bling never hurts either!
