For today's blog post I wanted to share this card I created for my hubby for Valentine's Day. I combined the gorgeous "Heartstrings" paper pack with the equally gorgeous "Amour" stamp set.
Last spring hubby and I took a wonderful trip to Paris! When I saw this stamp set I just had to have it to create something for him. Since I will be working on Valentine's Day, we celebrated with a nice dinner out last night. He seemed to like his card a lot. He also made plans for us to celebrate again come Monday, my next night off, with a movie outing. What a great way to make working on the holiday of love more bearable! LOL
Here's hoping this 5" x 7" creations gives you a little inspiration as you finish up your own Valentines.

Welcome to another Snowhaven Christmas card inspiration blog post! In case you haven't guessed...I really cannot get enough of this wonderful paper! LOL
This is the last of the four card designs that were included in the card workshop I was happy to purchase from my fellow Close To My Heart consultant, Vicki Wizniuk. Her style is amazing and I have just had so much fun making the cards featured in this workshop!
These are the cards I created from design 4 of 4:
Here is my favorite of these:
and, here is the close up as well:
For creating these cards, I used the stamp sets, "Sing Glory" (a hostess-only set) and "Merriest Christmas." For the little holly berries, I used my Shin Han Touch Twin alcohol marker (color: Carmine).
Here is my helper in my photography session for my recent blog posts:
Julie is always willing to be a part of the creative process!
Thanks for visiting today! I hope you have found some creative inspiration to get you crafting and in the Christmas spirit!
The countdown to Christmas continues! We are down to 11 days until the excitement of Christmas culminates. Are you ready with all of your special handmade cards yet? Well, today I continue with sharing more of the cards I crafted from the Snowhaven paper pack.
Today's cards are more of the set of cards I have done using the workshop cutting guide and assembly instructions courtesy of Vicki Wizniuk that I ordered from her blog. Thanks again, Vicki, for the creative inspiration that I am happy to pass along today!
These are the cards I made based on design 3 out of the 4 included in her workshop:
And here is my favorite from this design:
Here is a close up too:
I cut extra supplies from my leftover papers and decided to see what I could come up with using other Christmas-themed stamp sets that I have. Here are three of the additional cards that I created and a close up of each:
Don't you just LOVE the scooter in the "Make It Merry" stamp set!?!
This card features the stamp set, "Yuletide Greetings"
I tried to choose stamp sets that would give the chance to play with my Shin Han Touch Twin alcohol markers that we carry through Close To My Heart because they ROCK!
This last version of this card design was created using the lovely "To You and Yours" stamp set that has this wonderful cardinal stamp:
This meant even more coloring fun for me! Yay!!!
