Day # 5 of Valentine's Day Countdown

I saw a card by Brandy Jesperson and Susan Hart in the Stamp It Paper Crafts Technique magazine and just had to try it with some of our CTMH stamps.  This is my favorite creation so far in this blog hop:

I started with a colonial white card and 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch piece of B&T word print from a very old paper pack. Then I cut up the cardstock into some random sizes.  Some of these pieces were dabbed with Cocoa ink and others were left alone.  Then I reassembled the pieces and stamped two butterflies from the set S710 Butterflies (this is an old wood set I could not part with because I love these butterflies). C1192 Air Mail (retired) was used for the post mark  Then I used a border from D1428 Happy Journey on the left hand side, Valentine, LOVE( for the sentiment) and hearts from the D1245 In My Heart set.  I used Garnet waxy wrapped around the papers and under the sentiment. When everthing was adhered, I used the corner rounder on the top and bottom of the card.

This is my hubby's valentine anniversary card this year (18 years - wow, seems like yesterday we were dating).

Now check out the rest of the hop:


  1. Very nice! Thanks for hopping with us.

  3. FABULOUS! I love the butterflies and random stamping! Just beautiful!
