Valentine’s Day Banner

Hi all,

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. 

Well I hope you found some inspiration today. With Easter coming up I think this might be a great idea to use as well, don’t you think?

Celebrate Big!

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya. I’m here to share a quick card I created. I cut a 4″x5 1/2″ base from white cardstock. Used scraps of cardstock and scrapbook paper I had laying around, stamped Celebrate Big on a scrap of white cardstock and inked all edges of before adhering to the top of the card. The diecut I received in a swap over a year ago is from Spellbinders but I’m not sure which set it is from??? 
The last thing I added was some sequins and dew drops to the banner and a tiny flower which sequin and dew drop to the corner of the celebrate sign.

This is a very easy peasy card that you can knock out in only a short amount of time. It can be used for a birthday or retirement celebration.

If you have any questions let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope Saturday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!
