I needed a funny Valentine for someone special so I decided to use the crazy chicken in Hey Chick (Salebration) to peek out and send my love. (You can click on the picture to make it larger ) This is a 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 card with the “love” part done as a shaker. I arranged the letters with a heart from Sweet & Sassy framelits and cut them out of Real Red. The chicken is stamped on the backing of the shaker and a few hearts are attached to the top of the transparency. The letters are filled with sequins. Then I used the left over letters to make this card –
The DSP on both cards is Sending Love from the Occasions Mini. Hugs, Fran
More treats! While I still had my embossing paste out from yesterday’s project, I decided to try to use it on some of these little glassine bags. You have to work quickly on glassine so the paste doesn’t spread. I was still using the Hearts mask and was able to do two bags at a time. Once it was dry, I added a red Glimmer paper “love” and tied it off with some pretty red ribbon. Filled with treats, they look pretty! Hugs, Fran
These little treat boxes hold Tootsie Roll Lollipops and are super quick and easy to make. They really are wraps for the candy.
To make the wrappers cut a piece of Real Red to 2 1/4 x 7 1/2. Score the 7 1/2 side at 2 1/2, 4 and 6 1/2. Attach a 2 x 2 1/4 piece of the Sending Love DSP to the end of the Real Red paper and adhere the flap end over to close the wrapper. Use a hole punch to add a hold for the sucker and then add a 2 x 3/4 stamped piece (or you could use more patterned paper) to the flap. Insert you sucker and tie the top with a Real Red Sending Love ribbon bow. Add a heart from the Love Notes Framelit die and embellish with a rhinestone. I added a bit of glue under the rhinestone just to make sure it stays put. Hugs, Fran
This is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card full of LOVE. Using the Largest Letters Framelits, I cut them out of the Real Red strip and then replaced them with white letters stamped with the line of hearts from Sealed with Love. The “In the Air” is embossed with white embossing powder. The heart border is made using the Love Notes Framelit dies. I cut a sliver of silver Glimmer paper to run through the middle of the hearts. Hugs, Fran
Live, Laugh, Love – it’s almost Valentine Day! This sampler uses all kinds of hearts and stamps to create a keepsake for someone special of for YOU! Each square is the largest stitched frame die. I’ll try to list all the products I used below. Hugs, Fran
Monster hugs! This little monster from Yummy in My Tummy is holding a string of Valentines and is on an action wobbler (like this monster) to greet you. The sentiment is from Falling for You. It’s hard to see, but background is the Falling Petals embossing folder. Hugs, Fran
Valentines! Yes, it’s time to start thinking about them. Using the new Sealed with Love, I created a special Valentine. On the front I used the new Sending Love Designer Series paper, Sealed with Love stamp set and the Sweet & Sassy heart dies. The heart behind the sentiment is cut from Glimmer paper.
Inside I made a heart pop up! Following Karen Burniston’s directions for a Twist Circle Panel Card, I changed the panel to hearts. All you need is 4 hearts that are approximately 3 inches tall. I adhered them together so they measure 9″ long and scored at the same measurements in the video. The “i love” was die cut from Sunshine Wishes and the “you” is from Hello You thinlits. The glimmer hearts are from my stash. I hope you’ll try it! Hugs, Fran
Valentines Day? Yep! This card is made with the new Hexagon Dynamic Textured embossing folder and the “love” from Sunshine Wishes framelits. The heart was was cut from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits in Glimmer paper. I sponged on ink – Real Red, Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette onto water color paper and then embossed it. The love was cut from Black card stock and then fun foam, layered together and covered in Glossy Accents. Very simple. Hugs, Fran
Valentine’s Day! This Cupids bow is from SVGcuts.com and is a decorating piece. I think I’m going to hanging it in my wreath. It’s large – about 7 x7 – and very sturdy. I made a change to the assembly and instead of using a dowel rod for the arrow, I used a cute Valentine’s straw. Hugs, Fran
Need a quick Valentine treat? Use the Bear Hugs, stamp set found on page 40 in the Occasions Mini catalog. Stamp the big bear in Chocolate Chip ink on Crumb Cake card stock. Die cut the bear, flip him over and stamp him again. Stamp the heart in Real Red ink on Real Red card stock and die cut. Fill a skinny cello bag with treats, swipe a bit of adhesive across the bear’s chest and stick the cello bag down.
Gently curl the bear’s arms around the bag and use glue dots to attach the heart between his paws. Hand them out and watch people smile ! Hugs, Fran
