I Love You Card

To create this Valentine's Day card, I cut 3 heart balloons from the Sweethearts cartridge and added Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine to them.  A small twine bow was perfect for holding the balloons together.
I added some washi tape on my card and adding a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Dancing In Circles stamp set to a punched circle.  The sentiment circle and balloons were pop dotted with foam for added dimension.

Valentine Gift Card Bag

I created this Valentine Gift Card bag inspired by the red and yellow challenge going on over at Scrappy Moms Stamps.  The bag is just big enough to tuck in a gift card.  I added a hand cut tag to the front of a flat paper bag using a clothespin.  The word "love" was cut from the Lacy Labels cartridge and adhered to the tag along with a chevron button.
A small hand cut flag with a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Mini Messages stamp set was attached to the tag along with a twine bow made form Cherry Lemonade Trendy Twine.  Some washi and a few little sequins were used to embellish the bag.  The finishing touch was a crochet flower with a bling center.

XOXO Card

Today I have a Valentine's Day card to share which was created using the Sweethearts cartridge for the hearts.  I embossed the background with the Love's In the Air Cuttlebug embossing folder set.  The glassine envelope was embellished with a couple of hearts, sequins and Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine.
I tucked in a sheet of paper into a glassine envelope which can be easily removed to add a note on the back side.  The sentiment on the paper is from the Scrappy Moms Just Sayin' stamp set.

You Make My Heart Flutter Card

I created this little tag with a couple of challenges in mind.  I took the winter themed tag and added a fun twist to it by adding some hearts along with a fun sentiment.  The snowman was cut from the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge and pop dotted on a hand cut tag.  I inked the tag on the edges and added some coordinating ribbon.  A small pom pom was created with Holly Berry Trendy Twine to top off the snowman's hat.  I used some Candy Cane Trendy Twine to string along between the snowman's arms.  The small hearts were cut from the My Creative Time Stitched Heart Layering Dies.
The snowman's face was stamped with a Peachy Keen Face stamp.  I finished my tag off with a small hand cut flag stamped with a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Crazy for You stamp set.  The tag was inked on the edges and embellished with a couple of sequins.
