Valentine's Day Card Using Stencils

Sharing another Valentine's Day card with you all today. This one has more of a mixed media style to it.


Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. The opinions I share are solely my own, and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.
Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

Below is a process video showing exactly how I created my project.
Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel and click the bell so you will get updates when I post a new video.


To create the background onto the card front I mixed some red acrylic paint with some TCW9004 Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste along with the TCW825 Love Frame Stencil.


For the small hearts, I added more red paint in with the TCW9004 Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste to make it a darker red and used the TCW836 Texture Love Stencil. Once the hearts were dry, I fussy cut them out.

I design for several companies because I genuinely love their products! Anything I recommend on my blog is something that I genuinely love and regularly use. I buy most of my own supplies.

I DO NOT get paid for product reviews, I give my honest opinion about the products I use, and I will never recommend a product that I do not like or would not use.

Monkeying Around Scrapbook Layout

Hello! Today I am sharing a monkeying around scrapbook layout I created.


Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. The opinions I share are solely my own, and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.
Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

As soon as I saw the Creative Embellishments Barrel Of Monkeys chipboard set I knew I wanted to use it for these photos of my kids getting to hold and feed monkeys. I sprayed the barrel with some Fireworks! Spray in Rich Cocoa and sprayed the monkeys with some walnut ink.



On the Creative Embellishments Fern Foliage 2 and the Creative Embellishments Frond Set 3, I used different colors of green embossing powder on them. Then I used a hot glue gun to adhere everything down. The only thing I wish I had was some banana chipboard pieces to add to the layout....lol

Valentine's Day Love Card

Hello, my crafty friends! It is time for Valentine's Day card creating time. Not always do we have a lot of time to create elaborate cards. So a quick and easy card is in order.


Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. The opinions I share are solely my own, and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.
Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I created this card for the Poppystamps 2020 Valentine's Blog Blitz! Make sure to scroll to the bottom of my post to find out how you can win some dies. 

For the word "love", I used the Poppystamps Love Flourish die. I cut it out twice, once in white cardstock and once using a sheet of the Rinea Ruby Foiled Paper in Glossy. Then cut them in half and adhered the ruby half on the white cardstock and the white cardstock half onto the ruby foiled paper.


For the heart, I used the Poppystamps Simple Leaf Heart Split Border die and cut it out in white cardstock then adhered it to the front of my card.

A Fun Snarky Card For Any Occasion

Sometimes a fun snarky card is needed just because! I just can't help but smile and giggle when reading this card.


Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. The opinions I share are solely my own, and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.

This is my first post for Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps! I am so excited to be a part of this team and get to play with their fabulous stamps.
To celebrate for me being a new designer on their team my favorite stamp, Psycho Hyena and Saying Set is 50% OFF the entire month of January!


I first stamped the Hyena and sentiment with VersaFine Clair in Nocturne and then embossed it with clear embossing powder and colored the Hyena in with Copic markers.



Here are the Copic Marker colors that I used...


To create the background, I used the Circle Flower but only the circle part and not the stem and randomly stamped it using different colors of VersaFine Clair inks. Then heat embossed it with Irridescent Embossing Powder.


Don't forget to visit the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps Store and check out all the stamps that are 20% OFF this month. The discount on these will show up once you add them to your cart.
