Made With Love Card by Judy Stark

  I said I was not making anymore Valentines but.... they are so much fun to make!  Valentines Day was my Father's birthday,so the day is more than Valentines Day to me.
  I colored this rose digital stamp last month and was very pleased with the outcome.  I don't remember where I bought this digi but please let me know and I will certainly give proper credit to the artist. I decided to make a print n cut design with it. (saves me from coloring again)  Below is the rose and the soon to be released design I made.  I placed everything down as I wanted it but DID NOT glue together. The reason? I wanted to capture the shadows to make my product look more realistic and dimensions.

I then scanned my items into my Funtime program that I use with my Gazelle cutter.  I used my magic wand to outline and saved as a jpg.  I printed this out and then cut with my Gazelle's PrintnCut feature.  I also cut a side step card and Marci with hearts digital stamp from LaLaLand Crafts. I cut a heart and taped down my print n cut onto it. Colored my Marci stamp and added a few pearls. My card is done!

Be Mine Valentine

I made this card using the Heart Box Card with Topper pattern. The sweet Cupid Marci is a LaLaLand Crafts stamp. 


      This Valentine displays the soon to be released (this week) new files offered for purchase at www.scrapcuts.com The Heart Card Border with mat, the Honeycomb frame and the topper/swag and card from the Heart Box Card with Topper.
   I cut the patterns using my Gazelle machine.  I used the pen feature to write "Be Mine" and with the Gazelle, you don't need to buy a special pen holder.  I have used the smaller ones up to my markers!  Just put into your blade holder.  I added a few pearls to the swag and then chalked it lightly.

  Here it is only the third week of the new year and my resolution "be prepared and have my cards ready to send early" is already broken!  Two hours before my daughter's birthday party, I am coloring and cutting away!  But, I did get it done.
  Again, I cut the newly released LaLaLand Crafts digi stamp using my print n cut feature on my Gazelle.

LOVE is in the Air .. by Judy Stark

I hope everyone had wonderful, special holidays last month.  Mine was just fabulous but, I will never wait again until the week before Christmas to shop! That was just the craziest idea I have had in a long time.

I have been busy the past week with designing new Valentine embellishments and the above card pattern. Now, I can start scrapbooking!!
The card above is a box card with a heart design swag. I am making these for my Grand daughters and will add candy in a box, insert into front bottom part, which is a open box. I plan to make a larger version of this design and will post when completed.  I made this for them to put on their desk for Valentine's day or give to their teachers.

I used the box card pattern again but didn't use the box. I used a new design, which I call "Heart with Lattice Hugger."
I found this darling vintage valentine jpg on the internet. (free) Just google vintage valentines. 
Thank you for stopping by my blog!
