Valentine and Heart Themed Cards

The last couple weeks, I have been more productive in my cardmaking!  I am happy you are here today to take a look at a few of my recent cards.  I need to get my Valentines in the mail today!

This card was colored with pencils and gamsol. It is sweet and traditional.


(Click on photos to enlarge.)


The next couple is much more wild and crazy!  They were colored with water-based markers.



Finally, the other stamp in this set is sooo sweet, but instead of making another Valentine, I made this one a birthday card.  I think either of these stamps would make a good kid birthday card.  The paper was sprayed with Color Shine before stamping the panda. I then paper pieced him.



Supplies: Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Panda/Fox Heart duo, Sentiments also JFF, Archival Jet Black Ink. Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Blue, Green and Gold, Tombow Water-Based Markers, Derwent Coloursoft pencils, Pebbles Yours Truly 6x6 Paper Pad, KI Doilies 6x6 Paper Pad, Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two, QuicKutz Doily die, Fiskars edge punch

I would love to participate in the following challenges:
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge

  10. What a cute group of cards. Your colouring is done to perfection, as always. I love the dots you added to your second card. The panda is so adorable. My son is crazy for Pandas and has been known to stand outside in the winter snow watching the pandas in the Toronto (Canada) zoo.

  11. Wow! What a feast for the eyes to see so many different and creative Valentine's Day cards! I'm so impressed with how you made each one so unique and individual, yet they have those iconic heart elements. An the animals are too cute! I have to also give you kudos for the masterful coloring job you did which really brings your critters to life.
