Love Always & Forever

Happy Saturday, Pink & Main friends! Valentine's Day is next weekend...can you believe that?!? Pink & Main has some super cute word dies that fit perfectly with the holiday. So I am sharing a project with you today using the word die and the coordinating stamp set.
My task for the last week or so is purging/cleaning my craft area. During this process, I came across the glitter moon in the scrap pile. I thought it would be cute to use it on a card with a couple of birds in front of it. Then I remembered the birds from the Pink & Main Sweet Pair stamp set. I The birds are colored in with a variety of markers and cut out. The scene is put together with the 'starry' printed paper. The sentiment begins with the 'LOVE' word die and the rest is from the True Love stamp set. At first, I thought this would finish the card, but I felt the card needed a little extra of something. I decided to add a few heart diecuts.
Did you see this month's Pink & Main Challenge? It is all about LOVE! You can check out the details or submit your entry, HERE!
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a wonderful weekend! I am off to do some yard work today!

Hugs & Kisses Gift Tag

Hello, DCWV friends! It is Jessi from the DCWV Social Media Design Team! Can you believe that it is already February?!? Where did January go? With that being said, Valentine's Day is right around the corner!
I am one who waits to the end of a deadline to get things done. It is a bad quality I have, but I do think sometimes it is some of my best work. With that being said, I also wait to the last minute to buy gifts and things. Which means last-minute wrapping happens as well!

I found some beautiful gold/red/kraft chipboard tags that would be perfect for those Valentine's gifts. They just needed some extra bling before they are ready to be added to the gift! So I dug out some gold foil cardstock from my scraps and got to work!

Back in December, when I was working on my Daily December albums using the DCWV DIY Project Holiday Favor Boxes stack, I saved all my scraps, especially the gold cardstock! I knew that the gold would come in handy when I needed to add some bling to a project. I took the scrap and ran it through the die machine to create the word embellishment to add to the tag.


I wanted to extended the sentiment, so I stamped and embossed the rest onto DCWV black cardstock. The card was cut into a strip, embossed and attached to the tag. I cut the end to hang over the edge of the tag. The word 'hugs' is glued overlapping part of the black strip. The final touch for the tag was to add a simple mirrored heart embellishment from the DCWV Mini Adhesive Mirrors packet.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful!

Robot Birthday Card

Hello, Pretty Cute Stamp fans! Hope you are having a fabulous week! I am excited to share my project with you today!

I am working with the super fun BOTday stamp set!
One of my resolutions for the new year is to use the supplies that I have. So I found some scrap paper and decided to create a boy's birthday card with it. I brought out the fun BOTday stamp set and stamped one of the robot images onto white cardstock. The image is colored in using some colors from the printed papers. The robot is added to the card and the fun sentiment is stamped on the bottom of the card.

Joy Clair - Song of Solomon Card

 Hello, Joy Clair friends! It is Jessi from Kissin' Krafts. I am excited to be sharing one of my latest Joy Clair projects with you today!
As you may know, Joy Clair has started a new line of Bible Journaling stamps, Color by Faith. These stamps are full of amazing images that are perfect for bible pages and even cards!
Today, I am working with the new set, Song of Solomon.
Song of Solomon Clear Stamps - Joy Clair - 1
Here is the card I made using this fun stamp set:
I used the heart outline stamped in the center with red ink. On a piece of black cardstock, I stamped the "Mr. & Mrs." and banner stamps using white ink and embossed in white as well. Once the images were dried, I cut the banner out and attached on top of the heart outline. The simple sentiment "Congratulations" from the Many Blessings stamp set is stamped at the bottom of the panel. The white panel is attached to a black mat. The mat is attached to a printed card-base.

LOVE Burlap Banner

Hello, DCWV friends! It is Jessi from the DCWV Social Network design team. Can you believe that Valentine's Day is less than one month away! Perfect timing to bring out the Valentine's Day décor!
I have a fireplace mantel that I leave the same décor on it year round. However, this past Thanksgiving, I decided to decorate it for the fall. I had so much fun switching the décor from fall to winter and have been looking forward to doing something different for Valentine's Day.
Recently, I received some new product available, Gold Threaded Burlap, at Hobby Lobby stores. One stack was of burlap paper that included strand of gold throughout the burlap. I knew right away, I wanted to make a banner with it! So I trimmed the sheet to make the banner pendants. Time to gather up the supplies!
Next thing to do is to paint the letters using stencils.
To help bring out the gold touches, I wanted to added additional gold to the banner. Using DCWV Foil cardstock, I punched out hearts and created these doilies to be placed in between the pendants. After the paint dried, I punched holes in the top corners of the pendants. (These will be where you where string the pendants together.
To piece the banner together, fold the doilies in half and glue with the twine in the crease. Place one the first pendant of the banner and attach another doily. Repeat until the banner is complete!
Thank you for stopping by today! Be sure to keep visiting! There are some amazing things in work at DCWV! We cannot wait to share them with you!
