Valentines…

Pam Sparks Typewriter Valentine

I had great fun using stamps and dies to make Valentines last week! Our family party was yesterday so now I can show what I made. I don’t have a picture of one of them and two others didn’t get finished! I always run out of time!

This typewriter (CG280 My Type) card is Hero Arts stamps except for the row of hearts…it’s from Printworks.  I used the Misti to stamp so I could get this super, wonderful black inking!  love it!

Pam Sparks World Valentine

This one is the size of an ATC and uses Reverse Confetti’s world die and an Avery Elle sentiment.  The background embossing folder is from Cuttlebug.  The woodgrain stamp is from All Night Media.

Pam Sparks Airplane Valentine

I made a few of these for the younger grandsons…Avery Elle stamp and die sets and a Hero Arts sentiment stamp. Silver Wink of Stella Brush Marker on the wings and more.

Pam Sparks Fishing Valentine

Here’s the Memory Box Rectangle Frames die with a partial cut heart die, also from Memory Box.  The sentiment stamps and Little Bits Fishing pole and Fish are from Taylored Expressions.  The background is the All Night Media woodgrain stamp again.

Pam Sparks Tree Ring Valentine

I was inpsired by Sarah G for this card. I used the Winnie and Walter Tree Ring stamp, a Memory Box heart die, WPlus9 you die and the Hero Arts sentiment again.  Oh the arrow stamp is from My Favorite Things.

I made envelopes for all the Valentines using the old penmanship lined paper we had in grade school. Fun!

Whew, I could’ve made Valentines for a couple more weeks… it’s like Christmas cards once I get started I don’t want to quit! lol

Now, it’s time to clean up! lol All 17 of the grandkids loved the Valentine exchange party we had yesterday afternoon and hey, the adults had a great time too!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share with you. Happy stamping!

  3. Oh these are all darling Valentine’s cards Pam! I always run out of time too,I guess because we are blessed with so many grandchildren . I think I’m going to get started on Christmas cards now:)
    The fishing rod card is adorable and I love the tree ring!

  4. Such cute cards…that rod and reel is adorable…haven’t seen that before. I, too, loved making cards this year…I made many more than usual…like you, could have kept right on making them. I normally do better with holidays that are a “seasonal” type holiday like Christmas when you can send them over a period of time vs. a specific day holiday like Halloween or Valentine’s Day, but I made the mailing deadline just fine and have gotten lots of feed back from my friends and family who received them….better to give than receive as my Mom always taught us.

    Enjoyed your post today, as always….great job!!!

  5. These are all fantastic, wow you had a lot of them to make. My fav’s are the plane, I love the stitched look of the sentiment and the hearts. And the fishing one, hooked on your is too cute, neat idea. All are great combo’s of different sets!

  6. Wow Pam! You sure were busy. All of these cards are fabulous. I would of never thought of using wood grain, but it works so well. I like the way your creative mind works. Thank you Pam for sharing your wonderful cards. I’m so inspired to try woodgrain on my next card I make.

    The fish and pole card is just Stinkin’ cute!!! Love the partial heart!

  8. Oh Pam, another set of amazing cards, You are so bad for my pocketbook, I need to buy some of the products you used, lol. What lucky grandkids to get such wonderful cards from grandma!

  9. Every one of these cards are fabulous! I especially like the alphabet background behind the typewriter and all the texture on the heart globe card. I love the wood grain and the XO embossed background.
