New Stamps/Valentine Cards

Good morning ladies, well this is something a little bit different to me. Some wonderful papers and stamps available from my friend Jany. I had not seen these stamps before, but just adore these cute images, and what gorgeous bright and cheery papers. It certainly helped lift my mood, working with these! These stamps are by a company called The Angel Company.

So just to give you some background information the wonderful Jany has asked me along with the ladies below to do some dt work for her. I believe at present these stamps and papers are not readily available in the Uk and Jany wants to get as many people aware of them as possible. We will each be posting one card every Friday, hope you will enjoy the cards that we have come up with and that it may tempt you to try them for yourselves.

These wonderful and talented ladies are my DT companions. Please go over and take a look at their wonderful work, you are sure to be inspired by their creations.


So after all that waffle, here is my card for this week.

The image has been coloured using my copic markers and you can see glittered highlights to the flowers and scalloped border if you double click onto the image. The sentiment has been diamond glazed. I have used a selection of prima flowers with prima diamantes in the centres. The scallop is a fiskars punch with the martha stewart punch used along the bottom scallop.

Hope you love these papers and images as much as me. Hugs Linda x


Over at the yahoo group that i belong to we have had a valentine mingle. These are the cards i made for my 3 swap partners.

These cards were all made using my cuttlebug embossing folder and one of the lovely Faith designs by my very talented friend Debbie.

As some of you will already be aware, i am trying to put together a collection of valentine cards for a friend, its proving much harder than i anticipated!! i don't really do valentine cards normally and the inspiration has completely run dry.

These next two cards were made using my cuttlebug dies and some heart confetti, very simple.

Another card using one of Sally-Anns gorgeous downloads. I adore this little ouse. The red background is embossed with the cuttlebug swiss dot folder, not obvious from this photo im afraid. I have to say this is one of my favourite cards.

These two cards have been made using downloads from the fabulous Pink Petticoat website. I love these papers and the text is also from the downloads.

The hearts have been die cut using my cuttlebug dies.

This card is again made using the pink petticoat papers and the cuttlebug dies and embossing folders. I have glazed the embossed hearts which is not clearly visible from this photo, sorry.

So ladies, i hope to be back over the weekend with the final batch of valentine cards, but wish me luck!! and send some inspiration my way if you have some spare!!

Finally i want to say a big thank you to everyone who left such lovely comments on my last post. I appreciate each and every one, and special thanks to two special ladies who emailed me with kind words and some more thoughts! I am looking to the future, and hope this time with my son will soon pass!!! certainly before my youngest son gets to his age!!! at which stage i could be going through all this again, not a happy thought, by hey, i should be an expert by then!

Again im amazed by such kindness and compassion that you have shown, so hugs to you all Linda x

Chrissy said...

For someone who is apparently lacking in inspiration you are doing some lovely cards. sorry to read that things haven't been so good, I do hope things turn around a little bit for you. I love all the cards but as other have said thoase coffee and cream ones are lovely...I do love the last one especially. If you are looking for more inspiration, why not try some black and white ones too, they could work well. I confess I don't do many Valentines card either, I think I made two or three last year!
