Hello everyone, Jackie here with today’s blog post.. I am still in a lovey-dovey valentines kind of mood so here is another valentines card for today’s inspiration, of course this can be changed for different occasions too.
Start by ink swooshing across the front of a 5.25×5.25″ top folding card blank, here I used a distressed ink cube weathered wood.
Round the top right corner with a large corner punch then fix a medium sized die cut heart shape towards the centre top, use 3d foam pads for added height.
Make the biscuit. Die cut the half eaten biscuit shape twice, use a tiny heart die to cut out the centre of one biscuit piece. Glue the two together then fix a red die cut heart into the centre and ink around the edges with a light brown ink.
Die cut and build the monster then ink around the edges for texture. Attach the monster to the card front along with the biscuit.
Stamp out then die cut the sentiment, you will need to trim off the (‘re) from the word you’re. I have die cut a further two sentiment pieces in black card to help the sentiment stand out a bit more. Fix in place using more 3d foam pads.
Finish off by adding a couple more tiny die cut hearts, you could add some bling here if you wanted to.
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you to have a go at my card – Happy crafting Jackie x
Hello everyone, Jackie here today. With valentines day just around the corner we need to think about making a few love related designs. Here I have used the very adorable aga/cooker form Joset to create this cute valentines card with hidden message, I think this card would also work well as a planner page.
Cover the entire front of an A2 card blank with dark pink card, trim a panel to fit the front at approximately 5.25 x 4″ and gently ink around the edge with light pink ink then glue the panel in place.
Die cut the cooker front. Trim off all the doors at the hinges then glue a piece of light pink card behind, stamp the words in to each door opening then die cut and glue the other cooker front on top ensuring not to glue at the door openings.
Die cut the splash back and ink around the edge with light pink ink then attach a tiny heart to alternate tiles, you will not need to fix any hearts to the middle section as this will be covered. Add all the other finishing touches to the cooker.
Attach some thin strips of 3d foam tape on the reverse side of the cooker base as shown in the photo. Cut a piece of white card to fit in side the back, ink around the edge again with the light pink ink then stamp out the sentiment and attach a die cut cake to the very top. (layer the cake up with a few die cuts to add stability) you can hand write the word pull onto the cake.
This cooker design could easily be used for any occasion with any number of different sentiments added.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope I have inspired you to make a few love designs either cards or planner pages. Happy crafting Jackie x
Hello all, It’s Jackie here today with this super cute design using some Joset’s die’s, I have only just added the jeep to my collection so I had to have a play with it. As Valentine’s day is only a few days away you may just have time to create this design for a loved one, so let’s get started.
Die cut all the pieces for the boy and girl using the farmer and fairy 2, I have chosen to use coloured cardstock and gently ink around the edges with similar colours. You will not need all the parts as some of the girl and boy will be hidden behind the jeep.
Next die cut all the parts for the jeep, you can die cut some of the pieces more than once and stack them together for a more dimensional look, I stacked the main pink body and the bumper twice and the front grill piece three times.
Stamp out a heart pattern all over the main body of the jeep, set the bumper to one side then build the rest as normal.
Stamp out the bumper sentiment using sticky embossing ink, sprinkle with white embossing powder and set with a heat tool.
Create an inked background, here I have used distress oxides worn lipstick, squeezed lemonade and iced spruce. Use the largest of the fitted rounded squares die’s to cut a panel that will fit a white card blank measuring approximately 5.25 x 5.25″
Fix the background panel to the card front using 3d foam pads, add the boy and girl using a few more foam pads behind their heads. Add the jeep on top using even more foam pads, this is quite a dimensional card.
Although I have made this a love card you could easily switch up the sentiment to suit a number of other occasions. Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you to have a go – Happy crafting Jackie.

Hello and welcome! Samantha here – today I’m sharing a super cute card. I really wanted to make this Panda pop off my card, so I created a pink heart background to contrast with the black and white bear!
Step 1: Use black and white card to die cut the Panda.
Step 2: Use washi tape, secure white card (Card Measurement: 10.5cm x 14.5cm) to the craft mat. Next, position the stencil over the white card, securing it down with washi tape.
Step 3: Use a blending tool to blend in a generous amount of pink ink over the stencil, through to the white card.
Reposition the stencil, secure and repeat ink blending until the whole card front is full of pink hearts.
Step 4: Die cut three hearts using pink card.
Step 5: Stamp the sentiment on pink card, adhere this and the three hearts to the card front.
Step 6: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Use this glitter card to die cut small hearts (Peek-a-Boo die set) .
Step 7: Assemble and adhere the Panda to the card front. Embellish with the small hearts and sequins. Adhere a twine bow to the card.
Step 8: Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my ‘pandastic’ tutorial today!

Hey Everyone! It’s EK today with some sepia toned love cards.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to create a collection of romantic cards that can be used for Cupid’s holiday or frankly any day. Charlene’s A Field of Flowers stamp set is the perfect way to create a simple collections of cards. And let’s be honest, these flowers are just begging for a sepia treatment.
Step One: Stamp all the images from the A Field of Flowers stamp set onto Watercolor Paper using water proof ink.
Step Two: Using watercolor pencils in shades of brown, tan and peach color the flowers.
Step Three: Using a watercolor brush, spread the pencil out.
Step Four: Repeat steps one and two with the rest of the images.
Step Five: Using a watercolor pencil, shade around the edges of the watercolor paper. I used shades of red, pink and purple.
Step Six: Using a watercolor brush, blend out the pencil.
Step Seven: Repeat steps five and six with rest of the images.
Step Eight: Using the Love Sentiments stamp set, add the sentiment onto each image. I used grey on all except the one with the leaves.
Step Nine: Mount the watercolor paper onto an A2 card frame.
I hope you enjoy these super simple, yet romantic cards. Let me know in the comments below what you think about turning the flowers into sepia tones. Until then, happy crafting.
It’s Suzanne here with a sweet way to make a little tag book, filled with love for your Valentine – or make it as a gift for any time just because you love them! Grab your dies and some of your favourite embellishments and let’s play! Here is how you can make this with me.
Hello Planner fans! Today a post from me, Marjolijn. I made a spread in my planner for Valentine’s Day.
For me, ‘Valentine’ means family –– my family. It means my husband and my kids because, that’s what matters most to me. My heart beats a little harder when I see this picture from my love and my beautiful daughters. How blessed I am!
I had a lovely time playing with my Planner Essential Dies –– I love the light bulbs.
I made these pages with the Planner Essentials 20 Half Heart and glued the smaller hearts on the bigger hearts. With black cardstock and golden soft glitter paper I made the light bulbs, and the ‘Love’ word. With a stamp from the set CS125 Patterns 2, I stamped the edge of the small heart. The text is from the stamp set CS121 Remember. Further, I glued the different reinforcers over the rings.
The nice heart flower, from Planner Essentials2 5, I cut in pieces and then placed it behind the pictures. With a few stamps, I finished this page.
I made this page the same way as the first one. The little word ‘Love’ with the arrow was made with a die from the Planner Essentials 5. With the labels, I made a kind of tag where I wrote a little message on the back and placed it behind the picture.
Another page in my planner, and I’m so happy with how it turned out.
Here, you can see the dies I used.
And here you see the stamps I used.
I hope that I inspired you a little bit with this planner page. See you next time!
