Cross My Heart Valentine Card and Video

cross my heart pink & black card

 I love the crossword puzzle look in the Cross My Heart stamp and was anxious to make a simple valentine card with the I love you puzzle and the adorable little elephants!

Here’s another Valentine card video tutorial!  (If you can’t see the video in your email or feed, just click to the post to view.)  A few years ago our dog chewed up the end of my heat tool, but the darn thing keeps working so I keep using it.  I need it to stop working because I need a good excuse to buy the new heat tool, which is AWESOME.

Using the heart from the More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper made this project extra special and easy.

And embossing the I Love You on the Pink Pirouette cardstock gives it a crisp, clean look.

Blissful Bird Wedding Card

     Ciao Baby! Blissful Bird Wedding Card make a card

I love this Stampin’ Up! Blissful Bird stamp that coordinates with the Bird Builder punch, but I hadn’t used it yet.  So I combined it here with Ciao, Baby! and the fun Sale-a-bration Petite Curly Label punch to make this wedding card.  And, by the way, I love Ciao, Baby! Not only the stamp set – I just love saying the name!  Ciao, Baby!

Ciao Blissful Bird Wedding Card close up

I used the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper as an inspiration for the colors.  I stamped the Blissful Bird stamp twice – once in Pretty in Pink and once with Regal Rose – to create the bird.   I stamped it a third time with Lucky Limeade to punch out the branch.  I wanted a softer look so I stamped the Lucky Limeade off once before stamping and punching.

Ciao Blissful Bird Wedding Card detail

Love from the Ciao, Baby! stamp set was stamped with Pretty in Pink and punched out with the Petite Label Punch available for FREE with a qualifying Sale-a-bration order.  I stamped ‘bride & groom’ on Very Vanilla cardstock with the Sweet Essentials stamp set in Island Indigo.  Again, because I wanted a softer look I stamped if off once before stamping on the card.

The heart is punched from the Silver Glimmer paper.  (Learn how to get a free pack during Sale-a-bration.)  I love the little heart in the birds beak.  Don’t you?  I ran the So Saffron pattern paper from the Tea for Two dsp pack through the Big Shot in the new SAB Vine Street Embossing Folder (also available for FREE with a qualifying SAB order).

Cross My Heart Fun Flower Card

cross my heart fun flower card 2

If you read my posts in your email, you may have noticed this afternoon that first picture of my For the Birds Thank You card was different than most of the rest.  Well, I don’t know how it happened put I accidently selected the wrong photo when I wrote it up, but it’s been corrected now.  I didn’t want you to lose any sleep over it!  Haha.

The adorable butterflies in the card above are from the Stampin’ Up! Cross My Heart stamp set from the new Spring catalog.  That little butterfly stamp is the reason I bought that set!  I fell in love.

cross my heart fun flower

The flower is the star of the show here.  I cut two sets of flowers from the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper, Big Shot Die-cutting Machine and the Fun Flower Bigz Die.  I then spritzed them with water, crumbled, stacked and assembled with a brad in the middle to hold it all together.  After putting it all together I sprayed it with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  Can you see the shine?

A little Linen Thread bow through the button and then I glued it to the top of the brad with Crystal Effects.  With all the water and the shimmer, a glue dot was just not going to cut it, but Crystal Effects is like super glue.

cross my heart fun flower card

The button on the flower is from the Sale-A-Bration Sycamore Street ribbon and button pack, which will be available FREE with a qualifying order tomorrow!  The button is actually Tangerine Tango, and the paper and ink are actually Calypso Coral, so they are not the same color, but in person they blend and look great together.  However, in the pictures, not so much.  Darn.
