Deborah here with a Valentine’s Day share. I know Valentine’s is over, but our Theme for this month is Love/Sweets so I made a banner for Valentine’s Day and thought I would share.
For my banner I used an old tag that I traced on Kraft cardstock and then cut out. I placed eyelets at the top of the tags and ran lace through each one.
Supplies I used:
Embossing folder – dots
Paper – Blue Fern – Blush
Martha Stewart Punches
Prima – frames that I sprayed with color bloom sprays – cotton candy
Buttons from Buttons Galore
From my stash – lace, white pearls, feathers are from Joanns, wooden bird,
Vellum Valentine’s Day from Quick Quotes
Reneabouquets – butterflies (just gorgeous) & Chunky Glitter Glass – Sand & Glass Microbeads – Gold
Tim Holtz – Remnant Rubs – Botanical & Apothecary and Sizzix Thinlits/TH Celebrate – sentiments die “happy”
I shaded around each tag with PowderPuff – Very Berry.
I sprayed the frame with Color Bloom – Cotton Candy to give a little pink affect.
I placed glue around the inside of the frame and then
used Reneabouquet glass microbeads – Gold and let it dry. Also used the
TH Remnant Rubs “LOVE”inside the frame. Added a feathers and a button.
Here I added a wooden bird I colored with a brown marker and added
gold stickles to the wings. I also added sentiments from the TH
Remnant Rubs and drew a heart. The white butterfly is from Reneabouquets.
I used a Prima frame and added some pink paint on the from and added some
Reneabouquet Chunky Glitter Glass – Sand on top of the pink areas.
Again I added TH Remnant Rubs female silhouette. A little pink flower
I had in my stash.
On the first tag I used Sizzix Thinlits/TH Celebrate – sentiments die “happy”
and a Vellum sentiment from Quick Quotes.
There is a heart shaped button and a little pink flower from my stash.
2nd Tag – has some feathers and heart shaped button from Buttons Galore.

Hi everyone! It is me, Tonya! I hope everyone had a nice Valentine’s Day. The hubby and I went to Bluegrass Underground for a concert in Cumberland Caverns. Yep, music in a cave. The acoustics are incredible and the temperature inside is 56 degrees year round which I still think it is cold but yesterday the temps where 32 degrees and it actually felt warm once we got inside the cave. That was my Valentine’s Day gift along with a trip to Sonic afterwards for a Butterfingers Blast…yum!
Anyway this month’s theme over at the Crafty Card Gallery blog is Valentine’s Day and I want to share the card I created.
I started with a folded 4″x6″ patterned cardstock as the base for my card. I layered four pieces of patterned cardstock across the base of the card, then a gold foiled heart which I adhered all pieces down.
Next adhered two more scraps of cardstock diagonal on top of the foil heart.
Lastly I added always and forever diecut sentiment from my stash, Ric Rac and a button with thread to finish off this card. Very simple yet elegant. 🙂 If you have any questions about this card please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is awesome and enjoy creating!
