Lawn Fawn Valentines

Hi, guys! Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays. It could be the card maker in me, but I love the giving and receiving of Valentines.  Taking the time to write a card and letting those you love know how you feel is very important to me.  I hope I do a good job of letting the people in my life know how much they mean to me.

Today I will be sharing two Valentine's Day cards I made using Lawn Fawn stamps.  I enjoyed using these stamps as they had such cute images and sentiments.

On this first card I decided to use my Prisma colored pencils to color the pears. The background is embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The focal image was distressed and then inked using Distress Ink.





The next card is for my father-in-law.  As I was making it, I noticed how touchable it was.  I used white flocking on the bunny (so soft!) and the background was done in a faux letterpress style.  I used an embossing folder that had white pigment ink rolled on it and it gave the red card a softer look.  Along the bottom of the focal image  I added Dew Drops.  The focal image was also distressed and inked with Distress Ink. 






This weekend is a three-day weekend for us to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. here in the United States.  My hope is for a world of peace and equality for all.   Enjoy your weekend!

Until next time!

Cute cards Winnie!! I hope to do some crafting this weekend too. My goal is to start on 1 of the projects I've been thinking about for a while now (the ones you think about making but for some reason never get around to do so?) and to try out this envelope tutorial : http://www.mayarts.com/blog/paper-envelopes/
They are so cute and I've bought some cute new ribbons in the dollar store this week. Enjoy your weekend! Greetz Dee

Aww your cards are so cute and gorgeous Winnie and you've written such a lovely post.
I couldn't even begin to count how many times a day I tell my hubs & babies I love them & vice versa, even more so since my car accident probably as it hit home that you just never know what is around the corner & I always think you can never tell someone you love then too many times when they are your world.
Have a lovely long weekend
