Valentine's Day 2013

In honour of the Day of Love, i thought i'd share with you some of the Valentine cards i've made this year. This post will be picture heavy - enjoy!!!

This first card uses Red Mulberry paper and the waste from a Cricut Heart, small white heart and sentiment complete the card. This is my entry for this weeks (week 31) CASology Challenge.

 Some more cards in no particular order!
These first two use my trusty Cricut and have Star Dust Stickle accents on the lettering. A couple of Sizzix Lacy Heart embosslets adorn the 'boyfriend' card.

These two cards use a Spellbinders paisley M-Bossibilities for the background. The 'valentine' is cut from a Tim Holtz embossing folder and the hearts on the second card are cut by the Cricut.

The black and red card uses a quickcutz heart die and sizzix embossing folder with more red mulberry paper. 'For My Wife' was cut on the Cricut and I have used Craftwork Cards Sugarplum papers and flowers to decorate.

These next three cards are all made using the same Tim Holtz Sizzix Embossing Folder but in the different styles. This first is a vintage look with distressed boho papers from Craftwork Cards and matching mini blooms. The 'love' has been highlighted with Crackle Glaze - its not as brown as that in 'real life'!

 Some simple matting and layering of the embossed background for the second two cards. Stickles to highlight 'love' on the red and purple card and the Pink and Black was embossed onto Core-Dinations colour core paper and sanded - Glossy Accents has been used to highlight 'love' here this time.

An elegant metal heart and simple mat and layer make this a chic and simple card. The scalloped squares with random cut hearts was designed on the Cricut craft room and i think makes a simple, pretty card.

These last two use a set of Craftwork Cards stamps and papers - i just love how one set of stamps can look anyway you want it to just by changing the colours - simple and pretty here.

Busy day today, taking my youngest two to toddlers this morning and i've got a few challenges I want to work on later today - I'll show what I come up with.... well, if I come up with anything!
Thanks for reading!
