XOXO Puppy Love

It’s almost Valentine’s Day. are you ready with a sweet card for the loves in your life?

The card I’m sharing with all of you today was mailed off to one of my sons. Last year he rescued a wonderful dog from the pound, so it seems that almost every card I make for him has a dog on it. ūüėČ but gosh, those 2 are inseparable! since it was going in the mail, I tried to keep embellishments to a minimum, which for me is fairly hard to do!


2016-02-07 17.12.09a


I started with a base of Spirit Red Feltweave and distressed the edges with several shades of inks.  after adding my colored puppy image, decorative papers, and embellishments, I tied some of the fabby red twine around the card.  finally, a little banner punched from Desert Storm Kraft draws attention to the stamped sentiment.

thanks for stopping by! for more detailed information, head to my blog, “Just Coffee Please…

Love You

Hi everyone! Mari here, today I am sharing one of the Valentine’s Day cards I made this year. I used an image by DillyBeans that I colored with Spectrum Noir Markers.


I printed the image on Copic Blend It Xpress paper.

I cut the sentiment out of Jupiter Red Mica/ Metallic with the Silhouette and used the Azaela Mica/Metallic for the background. It doesn’t show in the photo very well but the papers really shimmer. These are some of my favorite papers to work with.

Love Puppy


Here is a cute Puppy image from 2 Cute Ink. I used a different combination of papers.



Here is a up close of Eggplant Weave. The texture is hared to see but is fun to have paper that add a bit extra to a card. A blue Pop Tones that I embossed then inked.

Puppy3This last one shows the Deckled Stationary Blue that I ink it has great texture and is fun to give a distressed look.

How to Create Fluffy Clouds on Neenah Linen



Aloha Guys! ¬†This is Joyce from and today I’m creating these fluffy clouds on a Neenah Linen card stock. ¬†These are my favorite card stock of all times because of the texture as well as it’s ability hold water, almost like a watercolor card stock. ¬†I’ve used my clarity brushes to create the clouds and you can definitely see the fantastic texture though the colors :) ¬†I hope you like this and thank you so much for watching :)

Valentine Day’s Duck


This is my valentine card for a dear uncle.  I put a wobbler under the main image so that when you touch it giggles back and forth.

The base for this card is Heavenly White Ultrasmooth.  I used a scrap of pink which is Rose Quartz Mica Metallic for the backing for the main piece.  The beautiful red layer is Jupiter Mica Metallic.  Both of these have a beautiful shimmer to them.  The main image is stamped on Cryogen White.

The stamp I used is from Great Impressions.

Incandescent PB & J

PB&J - 2_edited-1PB&J - 1


Stopping by today with a cute little Valentine’s Day card. I colored up the cute little image with polychromes and the used 2 very pretty papers from the incandescent line to make the card.

The base cardstock is ‘russo incandescent’ and I used a heart embossing folder on it. The white heart was done with ‘candido incandescent text weight’ and it has swirls embossed on it but I just couldn’t get it to show up in the pictures!!

The text weight is just as pretty but great for layering without adding a ton of thickness and is just as shimmery as the red is!!.

I edged the image panel and the heart with a gold metallic pen and added some gold pearl drops with a viva décor pen.

All for me today – Back to the craft room as I just got a whole pile of new pretty paper to play with :)

Take Care
