Are You Ready for Some Football!

So I am ending the posts with a project for Super Bowl Sunday tomorrow.     How great is that I was able to use The Ink Road stamp set Eat Your Heart Out sentiment.   If you can't be an athlete be an athletic supporter!!  I can so hear the line being said in the movie.     The football I stamped from the Stampabilites stamp set.    I used my white gel pen for the stitching.    The rest of the stamped elements come from the Sporting stamp set and the The Stamps of Live Banners 4 All.    The designer paper is from Bo Bunny Game On line.   

Peachy Keen Jelly Bean

So I am slowly coming to the end of my projects today.    Don't worry I will get better in posting them, but for now I think I have completely inspired you to create some Valentines.   I am not saying you are not going to see a few more Valentine's before the 14th, but for now this what has been made.    I just got this great stamp set from The Ink Road Stamps called Eat Your Heart Out.    It is the perfect set for everyone who grew up watching Grease and if you watched than you absolutely know all the words!      I got these great Jelly Beans for Valentine's and decided to dress them up with a tag made with the sentiment.     The stamped elements all come from the set.    The paper and the flowers are form the Echo Park Happy Days set.    If anyone sees this paper pack or something like this somewhere let me know.   I love this period piece.   I really believe sometimes I was born in the wrong decade.     

How did I get so lucky

So another project made with the Heartfelt line is this beauty.     I started with a Stitched Rectangle die cut on it's side.      The sentiment comes from the Thanks for the Laughs stamp set.     Some stamping, some punching and fussy cutting and the card comes together.    I did punch a retired scallop border and added some twine to complete the card.    

Valentine's Tags

So every holiday I get to have fun in creating tags for my nieces and nephews classroom gifts.    This time I used the amazing Heartfelt line in the Occasions Catalog.    The fun tag comes from the Bonaza dies which is not part of the line but a must have.     The line comes with the Heartfelt stamp set with two coordinating heart punches and the fabulous From My Heart designer series paper.      The small little hearts come from the Label Me Bold stamp set.        How cute are these tags.   I love the Happy Valentine's Day heart.   Anytime I can get bold color like this without heat embossing it is a must have! 

Perfect project for this week's Global Design Project color challenge. 

Just Sayin'

So my friend Denise has an amazing stamp line called The Project Bin.    Well she just released a fabulous new set called Just Sayin'     It is a builder stamp set and it has just the most amazing sentiments.     I decided to heat emboss them on a Pretty in Pink Heart die cut.    The arrows came from the Geometrical stamp set.     The side of card has some retired washi tape.    Some hearts punch outs, rhinestones and gold foil complete the card. 

Followed My Heart

The best of this card in my opinion is the fun designer series paper in the background.   It is from Crate Paper and it is called Hello Love.    I am super excited I still have some left for future projects.    Paper designers this is just perfect.    Please make more!   I know I can probably make my own with all the stamps I own, but for now I am enjoying what I still have left.      The sentiment comes from Unity.    The couple comes from Silouhette Scenes and it was heat embossed.    Some paper strips and enamel dots complete the card. 

Love Songs

This will always be one of my all time favorite sentiments in my craft collection.   Every time I read it makes me smile.    Music is a way into my heart.    Always has always will.    The sentiment and the penguins come from Mama Elephant Love Quotes.     The designer paper comes from Stacked with Love which I used my corner rounder.       The striped paper comes from My Favorite Things Black & White Strips.    A punched heart, some card stock and baker's twine bow complete the card. 

Every Single Day

I have to say I love this sentiment I have from   It is called I Want To.   It is a fun sentiment to come up with some unique designs.    Here I stamped it on ombre paper I had from Recollections.    I free form cut out a heart.    The background was Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Seedless Preserves sponged on with Dylusions Love Hearts Stencil.    Some enamel dots and baker's twine complete the card. 


So I am embarrassed to say that I have had this Spellbinders die for about 5 or 6 years and have only used it once.   It is called Cascading Hearts.    I could never find a way to use it until now.    Wow I am absolutely loving the end result and it makes the perfect background after you poke out all the hearts!!     The sentiment was a little fun to create by stamping alternating with Blushing Bride and Going Gray and putting them on a Stitched Rectangle.     The sentiments mostly came from the Echo Park Mr & Mrs stamp set and the Infinity Symbol comes from Stampabilites.    Infinity symbol always reminds me of the show Revenge.    Remember that show.   It was fabulous.   I may need to have to bing watch all over again once I find who has it!   

Smore Love

Who doesn't enjoy a play on words and this card is just perfect with yummy smores.     The smores and the sentiment comes from The Project Bin's Really Hungry stamp set.    I masked part of the sentiment and used die cuts from Little Yellow Bicycle to make it a little more fun.   They were all put on top of a die cut Rectangle Stitched.  Gingham paper comes from Color Bok Gingham Card Stock.   Enamel dots and a little ribbon were the finishing touches on the card. 

Groovy Kind of Love

So I have been in a groovy kind of way lately.    When I remembered that I had this great sentiment from Verve Feeling Groovy I decided to run with it.   Not going to lie this card took a little work but the fun part was using all these stamp sets.    You know it makes you happy when you pull out things you have been saving for one day and now one day comes and you actually use them!     I decided to spice up the sentiment by making off the love and making it a little more fun with a banner.    The banner comes from the Thoughtful Banner stamp set.    The Love comes from Apron of Love.    Then I punched out a daisy from EK Success punch and put a heart enamel in the center.    Then came all the fun elements in the background.     They were from Seeing Spots, Peace Love Cupcakes, Avery Elle Sending You  and Recollections Feeling Groovy.   The colors used in the project were Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo and Watermelon Wonder.    Hope you liked my groovy card.   I sure know I enjoyed making it! 

Always & Forever

Who says love and valentine cards need to be all pink and reds.    Black is always classic.   Add a little silver and you get a wow.      Here the hearts were heat embossed with Wow! Embossing Powder Cloud 9.    In person you can see a little sparkle to the silver.    The hearts come from Dina Wakley Media Friends to End.     The sentiment starts with a & from Handlettered Phrase die.    The always is from the Little Yellow Bicycle Love.   The forever was die cut from the Photo Play We Do Words.    Strips of designer paper and card stock complete the card.     This card could easily be used for a wedding card as well because of it's simple elegance. 

My Heart Choose You

How super simple and beautiful is this card.    The sentiment makes the card.  The sentiment I found lonely in the clearance pile at my local craft store.    How could this end up in the clearance bin.    The sentiment comes from Stampabilties I didn't choose you my heart did.    I colored in the heart with my Stampin' Blends.    The sentiment was die cut on a Stitched Rectangle and popped up with dimensionals.     Some Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper was used for the background. 

Mickey snd Minnie

So now comes the a lot of Valentines.   So if you haven't made one for you special someone.   Lots of inspiration coming your way.    I got this great Minnie and Mickey die at the last expo in town.   I knew it as soon as I saw it that it needed to be a part of my collection.    I am not even sure of the company, but this is what the packaging said.   Disney Inspired Scrapbooking Die Kissing in Love.    The sentiment comes from Craft Smart.   Found it in the dollar bin.   I also made a few others for anniversary cards and used the sentiment from the Falling for You stamp set.    Some designer series paper from Stacked with Love, card stock and twine complete the card. 

Snowboard Birthday

My nephew just turned 12.   For those of you following this blog, you have seen scrapbook pages of him growing up.   I am can not believe where the time has gone.     He and my brother recently got into skiing and snow boarding and I knew he would enjoy this birthday card.     Super easy and super simple to make.    I stamped the Artisan Textures.    Next came the Extreme Snowboard image followed by Gorgeous Grunge element.     The sentiment comes from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set.     Strip of card stock and enamel dots complete the project.
