Valentines Day Cards

I got a few new stamps and I wanted to share the cards I have made recently. All the cards have gone down to my friend in Cornwall by the way to be sold for her critter rescue. I hope they sell well for her.

This first card is a stamp by designer Rachelle Anne Miller and is a Lily and Milo Clear Stamp of a lovely Hedgehog couple. If you check out my garden blog you can probably tell that at the moment I am totally enamored of hedgehogs lately. Our little friend is a big part of our life and I just think they are soooooo cute as I think this stamp is too. For more information about this stamp and lots of other cute stamps you can find it at http://www.stampavie.com/.

I think it makes a lovely valentine card and also plan to use it to make Anniversary cards too. Who knows I may even use it for a wedding card, if I knew of anyone getting married that is.

This one is a Housemouse stamp that I have had for ages. I recently bought some new water colouring pencils from WH Smiths for 1/2 off and wanted to try them out. They work beautifully.

Ohhhhhh another hedgehog..... This is a Penny black stamp. They have loads of hedgehog stamps and I am slowly getting a small collection of them. I enjoy using their clear stamps as I think they are such a great bargain. You get about 8 or so stamps for the price of what you would normally pay for one wood mounted rubber stamp. And there is a nice mix in the sets to cover alot of different occasions.

I used my Wizzard dies to cut out the scalloped and plain nested circles to layer my toppers.

This next stamp I thought was sooooooo cute and can not only be used for valentines day but for other occasions too, like birthdays and mothers day etc. I bought her along with a few other stamps that I will show at a later date from http://www.funkykits.co.uk/catalog/ . She is a Leanne Ellis design named Luvvie.

All the papers and cards I used are from my stash and I did purchase the valentine peel offs which are a gorgeous red edged with gold from the craft stall at our local market.
