The Not 2 Shabby Shop has something really special in the shop–a Valentine’s Day Box. It’s filled with three new stamp sets, die cut shapes, stickers, bling, and two paper pads! You can make up lots of Valentine’s Day cards with this kit; however, the stamp sets and everything inside the kit can be used for all kinds of occasions. I created 10 cards with this kit, and I still have tons of left-overs.
To create these cards I used 5 different card sketches. Lately, I’ve been having fun using card sketches for inspiration. I created 2 cards with each set. I love having card sets to give away as gifts.

Thanks a lot for stopping by! Have a wonderful, crafty day!!
Hello! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I’m so excited about Scrappy Tails Crafts latest release, and I get to show you a few of the new products. These stamps and dies include products for Valentine’s Day, spring, and Easter, but you could really use them all year round.
For today’s cards I used a gorgeous stamp set called Popping Poppies. I love floral stamp sets! This one has beautifully drawn poppies with cute sentiments such as “Popping by to Say Hi,” “You Make Life Pop,” and You Popped in My Mind.”
Card #1: Poppy Heart Landscape Card
The large heart with poppies image fills up your A2 size card. I colored it in with Prismacolor pencils on kraft cardstock.
Flowers: Poppy Red, Raspberry, White, Dark Umber, Canary Yellow
Leaves: Chartreuse, Spring Green, Apple Green, Dark Green
Outside the Heart: French Grey 90%, French Grey 50%
Inside the Heart: Poppy Red, Pink
Card #2: Poppies on a Trellis Top-Folding Card
I stamped out the single poppies onto white cardstock and colored them in with Copic markers. I used one of the dies from the Basket Pop Up Card Dies to cut out the trellis for my poppies to climb up. I also used the Slimline Everyday Border Dies to cut out grass to put under them.
Hello & welcome! This year I’m challenging myself to create lots of different sizes of cards instead of my usual A2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) cards. Today I’m sharing 3 different sizes of cards. I always like to use new mediums, so it wasn’t challenging to use 3 different mediums. The stamp set I’m using is a new set from the Not 2 Shabby Shop called Sprinkled with Love. It comes in the new Valentine’s Day Box along with lots of other crafty goodies, or you can buy it separately beginning January 11th.
Here’s a look at the three cards I designed using the Sprinkled with Love stamp set! It’s a really fun set to ink up!
It’s time to start creating those Valentine’s Day cards! Spellbinders’ new clear stamp for January includes 6 different hearts–two of which have sentiments inside them–and a Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment stamp. This is a new club kit for Spellbinders, and the stamps are high quality photopolymer. I had so much fun playing with this set!
The technique I used to create this card involves stamping with both sides of the stamp. I stamped out the flat side of the stamp several times with different colors of Distress Oxide Inks. And then I stamped over the hearts using the right side of the stamp. I’m calling this technique “Double-Sided Stamping.”
I’m also using one of the new card panels and envelopes from Spellbinders. This is a cream colored card base, and it’s 5.25 x 5.25. Lately I’m having fun creating cards using different card sized than my usual A2 size cards. Spellbinders has a lot of different sizes of card bases in white and cream, and the price point is fabulous!
The Distress Oxides I used are Candied Apple, Wilted Violet, Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, and Dried Marigold. I stamped the red heart first in the center because I knew I wanted to stamp the sentiment on this heart. Once I finished stamping the heart with these inks, I dried the panel with my heat tool.
Next, I stamped the decorative hearts over the Distress Ink using VersaFine Onyx black ink. This is a pigment ink and stays wet and sticky long enough to allow me to pour over clear embossing powder. After I melt the embossing powders, the lines of the stamped images are shiny and dimensional.
Happy New Year! I’m hoping the new year will be a happy, healthy and crafty one for all of us! I’m starting the year off by doing something that I love–card crafting! I created 10 cards with Spellbinders’ January Card Kit called Lucky Love. This is an all occasion kit–the sentiments include a wide variety of occasions including Valentine’s Day and birthdays.
I really enjoy working with card kits and Spellbinders kit is always a delight. The are packed with so many darling things to create with. Below you can see the 10 cards I created, a link to my YouTube process video, and the links to the kits.
