I can’t believe it has been two months since I’ve posted anything. It was an unplanned departure from blogging over the holiday season. I was just not doing much of anything crafty and didn’t have the inspiration to blog about anything. I think there were even weeks when I didn’t even search other blogs to see all the crafty inspiration out there.
I hope you all had a great holiday season and your new year is starting out well.
After the holidays I found some great deals on some papers and finally sat down last night and made a few cards. For the next couple days I’ll show you some cards I made from this paper kit.
It is called Love Me Do from My Mind’s Eye. I got it for only $2 so how could I pass it up? Well, as you see, I didn’t pass it up. So far I made 8 cards and only used a few of the papers and die cuts from the pack. I did use a some ribbon, flowers, pin, glitter, ink and stamps from my supplies.
This die cut was just about all this card needed but I added a bit of bling to make it stand out a bit more.
The pearl sprig was from the bridal section of a local discount store. I but them down a bit so the strings were not all the same length.
I had this flower in my supplies, I added a bit a blue ink to help it match the papers just a bit more.
I slit the anchor to put it around the center of the flower for a simple card.
I love this paper pack and knew immediately that it would make great valentine cards. I love the non-traditional blue and yellow colors with the red. I think they make great valentine, just because or even anniversary cards.
What do you think, would you send these cards for something other than valentines day?
