For the hop today, I've created .......

A few valentines cards.

The first one is a simple heart card. I found a pattern online (Click Me)  and just printed it out on pink card stock. Then I took a piece of scrap paper that was red with weird looking black faded out flowers on it. I then took a black marker and colored in alot of the already faded out black. The rest I used some pink off brand stickles and traced with it. Inside i stamped Happy Valentines Day. Simple but cute.

Next I took another pattern for a 3 heart fold type card. I don't think I made it right but I did my best and I like it. I'm not to sure where I got the pattern from because I have had it a long time, so if you know please tell me so I can credit them. Anywho here is the pattern.

So I took pink card stock and traced all 3 hearts on it. Then I cut them out and glued the extra one to the second one via the tab. While the glue was drying I dug out 3 different pieces of scrap paper that kinda matched and said valentines.
The first heart is covered in a pink flowery paper. It has glitter and 3-d effects already to it. I then took the remainder of the scrap paper and cut an additional flower out and pop dotted it on top of the same flower on card. I glued a large white half pearl to its center. I added 9 small clear gems in the centers of other flowers. In the real small ones I put a small drop of puffy paint in silver.
On the second heart I took a light pink paper with some white designs in it, it also has some pink glittery lines around one side. I used a valentines stamp and put it on the blank of the paper.
 For the third heart I used paper that has small pink glittery sparkly leaves on it.
A simple but cute card.

  16. Hm, well I guess I'm a bit late for Valentines Day this year. But I like the idea of the three-heart card so much; maybe I can give it a try with shamrocks for St Pats Day?
