Valentines for Pat

I can't beleive it has been 3 days since I last posted a card...trust me when I say I have been busy creating though. I had a chance to make some valentines for Pat and her Cards 4 kids. She wants to donate 1000 cards for sick children to give to their family and friends on Valentines day. Also if you donate cards, Pat and Curt have some wonderful candy up for grabs.
I only had time for a dozen cards this year, I hope it helps her reach her goal. I wanted to get in on Curt's candy so I am posting my cards for proof....LOL!

These cards are made with a solid stamp. I sponged different colors of ink directly onto the stamp. I stamped it onto smooth white cardstock and very quickly dipped it into clear embossing powder and heated.



These cards were done with my heart nesties. They are stamps by Penny Black. I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I added a ribbon tie closure on 2 of them and a metal closure on the other. I also added some stickles.



The next 3 are made with Sunshine Design stamps. I embossed them with black and painted them with Tombows. They also have stickles. The papers are from DCWV stacks.


These last 2 are Penny Black stamps. They are also embossed with black and painted with Tombows. I used the cb hearts folder on the white card, and yes there are stickles.


I had a great time making these...its been a long time since I made valentines with my girls when they were little. Brings back a lot of memories.

I hope you like them.
Take care and thanks for stopping by.
