Valentine Cards For My Boys

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope you're having a good day and finding some time to get inky!  My afternoon was spent finishing up Valentine cards for a couple of real grandsons, Blake and Brayden....

I used my favorite (at this moment) color combo again ♥

I also used lots of fun stamping goodies for these cute cards:

* Patterned Paper - lovebugs paper stack by Doodlebug
* Mats - Lawn Fawn, Stitched Circle Dies
* Adorable images and sentiments - Quite The Pear stamp set by Simon Says Stamp

I did a bit of wonky machine stitching around the edges of each card and colored the images with my Copic Markers.

A bit of twine, a few enamel dots and hearts finished up the outside of my cards.

And, of course, I had to pretty up the inside!
I used a Banner Die from LaLa Land that I've had forever and finally pulled out of the drawer. Those hearts are just perfect for Valentine projects - don't think this one will go back into the drawer until this holiday is over!

Okay, so that's pretty much the scoop with these cards.  Now I'm off to link up these cuties at a couple of fun challenges going on....

  13. Love both cards. The gumballs are so cute but I have a thing about frogs. My nephew and godson was so afraid of frogs when he was little. Even stuffed, ceramic, concrete garden frogs. He got married last summer and I can't wait till their anniversary. I've already found the frog couple for their card. So I really love your frog card.
