Love Birds Valentine

I admit of all the cards I've made for Valentine's this year,  this on is my favourite.
I love this adorable little couple perched so cozily on their branch enjoying the moonlit night.


 And in case you are wondering, yes, these birds are made using just one punch.
So for those of you that do not currently own the owl builder punch, you might just want to consider it for your next order. It's amazing how versatile it is.


Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Stamp: Perfect Pennants - SU
Dies: Circle Framelits - SU, Branch Tree - Tim Holtz
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, Marina Mist, Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral - all SU
Misc.: black marker, white gel pen, foam mounting squares

I Love Ewe

When my daughter was little she was a big fan of the TV show Lamb Chop's Play Along (and that darn never ending song - This is the song that never end..., sorry to those that know it and now have it playing in their head, repeatedly).

"Tumbling" Head Over Heals

I am sharing another cute little Valentine's critter today.
He's just as easy to make as my honey bear (just one punch) and I have to say I absolutely fell in love with this floppy little bunny.

Truth be told this little fellow had not been intended for Valentine's at all. I came up with this design when working on upcoming Easter themed creations. I made several bunnies, posing them all in different positions and somehow managed to have this little fellow look like he is almost somersaulting. This reminded me of some stamps I own that haven't been used too much and I went searching for the "Head over Heals" sentiment as I thought it work extremely well.


Wouldn't you love to have this little guy tumble head over heals for you?


Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Stamps: Many Happy Returns - SU, Vintage Frames - SU
Ink: Calypso Coral, for inking card edges: Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, Garden Green - all SU
Dies: Banners Framelits - SU, Lacey Squares Nestabilities - Spellbinders
Embossing folders:  Chevron - SU, Stripes - SU
Punches: Word Window - SU, Modern Lable - SU, Medium Heart - PB, Scallop Heart - PB (punch art see below)
Misc.: black marker, white gel pen, pearls, foam mounting squares for dimension
