Welcome Stampin' Friends and Happy Valentines Day!!!
I have a bunch of fun Valentine's Day craftin' to share with you today!!!
If you have ever read my blog before you might know that I am can not go very long with out making a flowered headband!!! This one is very simple...
1. Tear a length of Twitterpated Designer Fabric (#125412) fabric, 27" or longer if desired.
2. On the cut edge, do a running stitch.
3. You will not need to pull the thread very tight at all, only slightly.
4. Hot glue the fabric to a felt circle, staring on the outside of the circle working your way to the middle, going round and round till you get the end of the fabric and the center of the felt circle.
5. Add a felt heart and button with hot glue as well.
My girls love these and have worn them several times, when you have girls, you can wear a pink head band almost everyday!
I spent some quality time in my stamp room, I needed some serious stampin' therapy, and made some valentine cards for my girls!!! Here is the card I made for Hannah. She is my youngest and has a thing for owls (see her Owl Birthday Party HERE and the Stuffed Owls that started it all).
It just came to me, to make a owl sitting in a tree and the saying would be "Owl always love you". The tree is hand drawn, stamped with the Woodgrain Background stamp (#117100 ) and sponged.
I dressed up my owl (#118074) with theDotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch (#119275). I printed my saying on theCurly Label Punch (#119851).
My second valentine card I made for my seven year old daughter, Samantha. When ever she makes me a card, she wants to put a little of everything on her card, so I took that as my inspiration. I wanted it to be very girly, frilly and pretty.
It's so pretty, I love it. Felt, buttons, scrunchie flowers, baker's twine, rhinestones, pearls, crocheted flowers, designer paper, ruffled ribbon and a heart! MERCY!
And we can not forget my hubby!!!
Crumb Cake and Real Red, perfect Valentines color combo! And it works great for a masculine Valentine card. I was able to cut some light weight chipboard I saved with my Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Sizzlits Dies (#115951). I had a fun time playing with my new Heart Framelits (#125599), Edgelits (#125595) and Adorning Accentes Embossing Folders (#125601)!!!
This next card was inspired by a Pinterest find and is a card that I demonstrated at the Stampadelicious group meeting last month. I love the ribbon behind the heart, which I die cut using the Hearts Collection Framelits (#125599).
Last but not least is a simple felt banner, again inspired by a Pinterest find.
The letters were die cut with the Serif Essentials Alphabet die. I then stitched the letters to the heart right down the middle and then stitched the next heart, creating a chain. I call it my "heartfelt banner".
