Red Blush Rose

Hi Everyone,

Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us and I love the holiday so I was making one Valentine card after another. So, I have a backup of handmade cards for the cherished heart day.

Here is one of them, created using the Penny Black Red Blush stamp set and the Hero Arts Heart Infinity dies. The rose and bud are so pretty in this stamp, I knew I had to make something. My only regret was I didn’t get it done sooner!

DIY Heart Valentine Card

Hello friends,

Today I am sharing a DIY Heart Valentine card that was made with a minimum of supplies. The card was inspired by a painting that I saw in my travels. Art I like sticks in my mind, but unfortunately, my mind is like a sieve and I have forgotten where or when I saw it. I wished I had written down where I saw it so that I could share the painting with you too.
