This is a circle blog hop, so you can start at any blog in this hop and keep hopping til you see the first blog again. The blog before me is from Jenifer . The next blog in the hop is Melinda .
I have three quick and thrifty ideas for you. All of them are using scraps I had from past projects, mainly Christmas ones. And I tried so hard not to use anything from the new Idea Book coming out Feb 1st. I didn't use any of the papers, but I failed with the stamps. I found out I don't have many heart stamps. I used Sweetheart stamps, which is from the Sweetheart WOTG, and Card Chatter - Love. This stamp set is great for valentine's day and anniversaries or any occasion you just want to say I love you. I also used our new spray pens (tech. didn't cheat on this one because it is available in the Wings WOTG which is available now with some special discounts for this month only). So lets get started
My first card. This is a very simple design. And I love the mist on the base. It would be too plain otherwise. I made two mists for this card, one with Black reinker and one with Tulip reinker. To make the mist, I used alcohol ( you can use water but this dries faster), reinker and some create-a-shade paint. IRL it is so shimmery. Plus I love the fact you can make it the exact way you want it. You don't even have to have shimmer at all, just omit the create-a-shade. *warning. when using spray pen, make sure where the nozzle is or you will get the mist everywhere. Ooops*
Another pretty simple card, using no pattern paper. I random stamped on Chocolate cardstock with the hearts. I love it. To make the scalloped bottom, I just used our circle punch , cut them in half and did two layers. To get the three layers of heart, I stamped the heart normally, then flipped it over on the block and used the back of the stamp for the second layer. Then I just glued that to cardstock and bubble cut the third layer. The letters are actaully from our new Bohemian Alphabet, I just direct to paper inked them to hide the design.
Super simple way to make kid's valentine's for school or whatever. I used Caramel Apple Pop ( I LOVE these. I got two boxes for xmas WOOOO). I just cut down a coin envelope that fit the pop perfectly and added the decoration. And of course finished with a bow. I think this one was the easiest of all.
I hope you enjoyed my post. I am actaully the last one on the blog hop. If you started at Melinda's blog, you are good. If not, the next blog to go to is Melinda .
