Hey Crafters! Katelyn here! With only 13 days until Valentine’s Day, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about creating those special cards for loved ones. So, today, I’m sharing with you my Love Card.
To create my card, I’ve used a variety of dies from Suzanne Cannon! To compliment the products from Suzanne Cannon, I’ve also used dies from Els van de Burgt Studio. Read below as I have a tutorial for you on how to recreate my card.
Step One. Choose three Valentine’s Day themed patterned paper. From the first paper, die cut 4″ Stitched Rectangle. From the second paper, die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle. From the third paper, die cut a 2 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle. Distress the edges of papers. Ink the edges of the papers using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. Die cut a 3″ Stitched Rectangle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Three. From the Love, Joy & Peace Christmas Ornament, you’ll need the love word. Die cut the word out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Four. From the Flourished Frame Die, die cut the frame out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Five. Die cut the Flourished Oval Frame out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the frame and sprinkle Gothic Black Modern Gilding Powder over the entire surface of the frame. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.
Step Six. From the Entwined Hearts die, die cut the set of three heart three times out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink over the entire surface of four hearts. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink over the entire surface of five hearts. Ink the edges of the hearts using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Seven. Adhere the Flourished Frame to the 4″ Stitched Rectangle. Adhere the 3 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle to the middle of the 4″ Stitched Rectangle.
Step Eight. Foam square the 3″ Stitched Rectangle to the middle of the 3 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle. Adhere the 2 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle to the middle of the 3″ Stitched Rectangle.
Step Nine. Adhere the Flourished Frame to the middle of the 2 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle. Adhere the Love sentiment to the middle of the Flourished Frame.
Step Ten. Adhere the hearts around the Flourished Oval Frame and sentiment as desired. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 1/4″ x 8″, score at 4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.
Thank you for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Love Card.

I often like to create my own backgrounds for projects and was reminded recently of a technique I did several years ago to marble ink on cardstock. I decided it would be a pretty background for my Valentine’s Day card using several Elizabeth Craft Designs dies along with the new Bachelor Button by Susan Tierney-Cockburn. I love that bachelor buttons can be found in nature in so many beautiful colors.
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today with a card designed using Becky Seddon’s Free As A Bird die set and Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s CountryScapes Garden Edges Rose Hedge die set. This card could be used for a Valentine, a wedding, an anniversary, or whenever you want to send love to someone special.
When it comes to making a Valentine for a man, it can be a bit of a challenge. How do you balance the girly hearts and doilies with a man’s less glittery sensibilities? For today’s project I have tried to do that. There are definitely feminine elements at work in this card, but the color palette and simple images help keep it from becoming too delicate. Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading
January is chilly here in Nova Scotia. After work I quickly walk my puppy, then put some comfy clothes on and spend time in the craft room. It is a wonderful time of year to be in the craft room and get the creative juices flowing. Yes, crafting is a happy thing to do on these chilly winter days.
This week I created a card using one of the stamp sets designed by Suzanne Cannon, the Love & Hearts Collection.
The card has shimmer, texture, playfulness and Suzanne’s beautiful calligraphy.
