Hi everyone!  Joy here today showing a card made with supplies from the Classy Cards 'n Such online store.  The pretty background script paper is from Key to My Heart 6.5" x 6.5" paper pad.  

The sweet little love sentiment is from the Key to My Heart paper and is one of the many sentiment die cuts - there are 4 pages of them!  That's enough to make enough Valentine's for a whole classroom.  The sentiment die cut was popped up using Small Joy Pads.  The flowers were attached using Art Institute Clear Adhesive.  The heart background was sponged on using a Mini Ink Blending Tool.

Thanks for looking at my card.  Have a Happy Stamping Day.

February Birthday

Good afternoon, and welcome to another sample card from Classy Cards 'n Such. Mindy with you to share a birthday card suitable for a February Birthday. I hope you will enjoy it, and leave me a note. I enjoy comments from everyone.

My card background started with a sheet of watercolor paper that I lightly misted with water then embossed with the Smitten Embossing Folder by Anna Griffin. I then misted it again so it was wet all over, and tapped some of the Alizarin Crimson Color Burst and Merlot Color Burst from Ken Oliver Crafts.  When the card was dry, I accented the hearts on it with the Pearl Pen - Glitter Pink by Viva Decor and let it dry before adhering it to my card front.

I then die cut the amazing calligraphy die, Happy Birthday by Elizabeth Crafts Designs along with a thin sheet of craft foam to give the die stability and strength before adhering it to the card front. A fabric bow and small hearts, along with a butterfly die cut from Medium Butterflies by Impression Obsession were added to complete the card.

You still have time to join our weekly challenge over at the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.  I hope you will join our fun!

Raining Love

Continuing with this week's challenge at CCNS, I made another red and white card with hearts.  I taped white card stock trimmed with the largest Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A to the Memory Box Heart Confetti Stencil. Then I used the paste spreader for quick work with the Dreamweaver's white embossing paste. While it was drying, I stamped the I Love You Alphabet by Quietfire Design and trimmed with circle dies. To add to my confetti look, I used the little hearts from the largest die from the Spellbinders Heart Circle set. With the Art Institute glue, I adhered them so that it would look like it was raining hearts.

There's still time to play along!

Let's see your entry to our challenge!!

Love Is

Hi friends, Mindy here with a sample card of our challenge here at Classy Cards 'n Such.  The challenge is Love Makes the World Go Round,  using pink and/or red, with white and hearts. My card uses all of the above and I hope you like it.

I started with a white card base and embossed it with the Dots Embossing Folder by Crafts Too!  I embossed another white stock sheet with the Roses Embossing Folder by Brenda Walton and Sizzix and fussy cut around the flowers before attaching to the card borders with foam tape. These roses were colored with the Clear Glitter Pen by Wink of Stella to give them a bit of sparkle. I then stamped and colored the large flower from Floral Vintage Labels Two by JustRite Stampers, fussy cut around and adhered to card front with foam tape.

The sentiment was die cut along with a piece of thin craft foam to give it stability and strength before adhering it to the card front, along with heart stamping here and there.  I hope you will take the time while creating your Valentine cards to enter our weekly challenge.  There is a nice prize for the winner, and great prices on many of our supplies.

Framed Heart

Hi, Diane with you today.  This week's challenge on the blog is Love Makes The World Go Around.  We were to use red and/or pink and hearts.  We also have a beautiful inspiration photo and you can find it by clicking on the current challenge tab.

I made a simple but gorgeous card.  I started by embossing with a new in store embossing folder by We R Memory Keepers Bouquet - Next Level These give a deep beautiful impression.

Next, I cut Impression Obsession Rectangles 6 in 1 Frames.
What this means is you get one die, but it cuts six frames all in one cut.  I used three of the six.

Each was popped up with Joy! Foam Pads Small. The frames  were cut from Pearlized Esse White Metallic card stock.

I cut a heart using Memory Box Precious HeartsThe heart was cut with red mirricard card stock.

I hope you enjoy my card and try one yourself!

Thank you for joining me today!

Next Level Love

Hello! Diana here to share with you a card I made for this week's challenge to use Red, White, Pink, and Hearts. This card is a case from Jennifer McGuire's video on using the We R Memory Keepers Next Level embossing folders. 

 I used Distress colors Fired Brick and Picked Raspberry, We R Memory Keepers Bouquet embossing folder, Quietfire Design Love die, Perfect Pearls Biscotti, and Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A. Per her instructions, I masked my area off, sponged the colors on generously and then buffed on the perfect pearls. I then ran it through my Big Shot with the embossing folder. The red and pink changed their hues a bit after I added the perfect pearls and they really do look metallic. To adhere the gorgeous Love die cut, I recommend using a glue like Art Institute glue since it has a nice fine tip.

I hope you enjoyed my card!

Beautiful Valentine

Hi, it is Shirley here today with a card for the brand new challenge here at Classy Cards 'n Such. We are to make card with red/ white or pink/ white hearts. I decided on using red and white hearts plus I added in a little silver. Let's get started on my card.

I started by using a white glossy c ard stock.  I added a layer of red foil card stock.  I used a die to cut the lacey edge using more of the white glossy card stock and added another layer of red foil card stock.  I used Spellbinders Vines of Passion heart die to cut the white heart, but you could easily use the Memory Box LaRue Heart, as well.  I popped it up on the red foil card stock using Joy Foam Pads Small.   The silver heart and vine was cut using the Impression Obsession Heart Flourish die.   I cut it in three pieces to place around the white heart.  This die always looks nice on cards.  It seems to give them an elegant look.

I used Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive to adhere all the card pieces together.  I added pearls on two of the corners from Finesse Swirls White Pearls.

I hope you liked my card.  I apologize for the picture of it, it was very hard to get a good photograph of it in my lighting.  Be sure and make your heart card to enter in our challenge.  We love seeing all of your cards.

There have been a lot of other die cuts added to the store closing sale and they are going fast!   Click here for details!
