For this project, you will needs watercolor cardstock, a piece of dark grey cardstock, pieces of cardstock in classic Valentines Colors, a piece of yellow cardstock, a piece of light brown cardstock, a piece of white cardstock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″, an A2 card base in white ,and a piece of pink cardstock measuring 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. This project is a great way to use up some scraps.
Instructions: Spray a piece of watercolor cardstock with ink sprays. I have also added some sprays that have some shimmer to them

Using the center piece, stamp the sentiment from the Cute Winter Sentiments stamp set. Here I have also inked the edges with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

Karen here today. I’m sharing a couple cards that I made using Joset’s adorable animals and the gorgeous washi tape! These cards would be great for Valentine’s Day or just as a reminder to that special someone in your life that you love them.
The Monkey die is definitely one of my favorites! I cut the monkey using brown and Kraft paper and added some cheeks and ears with Copic markers and a white gel pen. His eyes and mouth are colored with a black pen. I cut the pieces of him that are “on top” with 101mm Double Sided adhesive on the cardstock to make him easier to put together.
The sentiment is from the Safari Sayings stamps and is framed with a Stitched Circles and Dotted Scallop Circles die cuts. The card base is cut with the Stitched Rounded Rectangles.
I love how just a few pieces of the Reminiscence Washi Tape adds a little interest to the card. As you can see here, I also added a couple half-pearl embellishments. The little strip of paper is a “scrap” that I had left over from the Mystical Winter Papers.
And, oh my, the Raccoon die creates such a cute card! He is cut with black paper and 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, which I colored with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. The sentiment is also from Safari Sayings. The card background on this card is cut with the Stitched Indented Dies and framed with a piece of black cardstock. I used the beautiful Artsy Scenery Washi Tape! On this one, the scrap of paper is from the Reminiscence Book.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Craftily yours, Karen

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!
