Autumn and French Leaves!

Have you ever made a card and then later on needed a card for another occasion? I changed the sentinment on both of these cards! It is nice to have cards that a punched greeting can be replaced or added for that need to send out the card yesterday but forgot card.
I used 2 different stamp sets for the leaves and cannot decide which I like better! The top card uses the leaves from French Foliage stamp set and the bottom card uses leaves from Autumn Splendor stamp set.

For My Valentine!


What a crazy week! This is the Valentine's Day card I made for my husband. Isn't it lovely? I ordered the Petal Cone die just in time to make this card! To make the card I cut out 2 Petal Cone pieces out of Crumb Cake card stock, then cut one of the tabs off one of the pieces and glued the two pieces together using the other tab. To cover the card base I cut out another Petal Cone shape out of the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper and cut off the tab.

The 'love you' swag is part of the Petal Cone Die and then using Stampin' Up!'s Simply Scored tool I scored the flag on either side of the 'love you' to create the pop up effect.
Supplies
Stamps: Short and Sweet
Ink: Calypso Coral
Paper: Very Vanilla, Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper, Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Heart Framelits, Pearls, Itty Bitty Punches, Paper Piercing Tool, Crumb CakeTaffeta Ribbon, Simply Scored, Big Shot, Petal Cone Die

Valentine's For The Boys!

It finally dawned on me yesterday that Valentine's Day is Tuesday! Really this close already? So I started with 2 special Valentine's for my nephews. The first one started with a Maze Game from Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Mini Catalogue. You know the maze games where the little ball travels to the center? Great little game for kids of all ages!

First I made the scallop square that the Maze Game would end up being stuck to. I took a piece of Basic Grey card stock and a piece of the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper and stuck them together with a piece of the Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive. So then I have a 2 sided piece of card stock/DSP which is then cut with the Big Shot and the larger square on the Scallop Squares Duo die.
On the back I put a stamped heart and a little message. The circles on the Twitterpated DSP were the perfect size to hold all the letters! On the front the Maze Game is adhered with Sticky Strip.
For my youngest nephew I created this little card using the same colour scheme. So adorable! Since this little guy is still young there is no maze game on this card.

Supplies
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Sprinkled Expressions (SAB)
Ink: Versamark, Island Indigo, Basic Grey
Paper: Basic Grey, Whisper White, Twitterpatted Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sticky Strip, Word Window Punch, Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon, Maze Game, Big Shot, Labels Framelits, Scallop Squares Duos die, Square Lattice Textured Folder
