Non-Tradional Color Valentine Cards

 GOOD AFTERNOON my creative friends!  I hope you ALL have been doing good! Me, keeping busy but still not 100% so I've been trying to keep a low key so I can be ready for one ALL those dies to arrive (which are on their way to me as I type)! YEP, I am going to need ALLLL my strength to help get everything packed up & sent out to ALL of you who have been waiting so patiently for your backorders!;) 
Okay, I have an EXTRA SPECIAL card for you today along w/2 that I have made too! Today I wanted to feature some Non-traditional Valentine color cards for you! This FIRST card is one made by MY MOTHER!:)  I think she did an EXCELLENT job! She used the heart dies from "100% Sweetness" & the sentiment is from "Lots of Love"!;) I think it looks pretty for "non-traditional" Valentine colors!
 I made this next "non-traditional" Valentine Color card, I used paper from Teresa Collins "Vintage Finds" 6x6 paper pad. All I did was add some red to it & made it some what a Valentine card! The sentiment is from "Fly Away w/me Sentiments" !
 The dies & stamps I used are "Fly Away w/me Dies" & "Fly Away w/me Stamp set".  I adhered it all done using lots of pop dots!;)  Then I added the little "Stitched Layering Hearts" & added them to the banner! Lastly I used my FAVORITE Red thin hemp.
 Here you can see the chunky glitter I put on the hearts & on the clouds!;) I REALLY like how it came out!
Okay, now this next card here, I decided to do a 2-part video! I thought it would be fun to make 2 cards using the same paper pad! It is Echo Parks "For the Record II" and I also used the coordinating brads to go w/it! Since this is a NON Valentine paper pad, I wanted to challenge myself to make one "regular" card & a Valentine card using this same pad! This first I thought was a simple & fun one!
 I just LOVE this paper pad because it does have a vintage feel to it & it's PERFECT for a "manly man" card.:)  I think this card will even work for a female too, heck I would LOVE to receive a card like this too!;) 
As soon as I saw this paper I knew I wanted to use my CUTE "Circle font" stamp set! I stamped the letter dies onto the circle dies that are included in the "Build a Banner set"! Aren't they so PERFECT for this paper? You can see in my video below on how I put this card together.

I hope you enjoyed the 1st card of my 2 part video! Tomorrow I will make a Valentine card using this same paper!:)  Thank you so much for visiting my blog today & I will see you all back here tomorrow! Have a FABULOUS day my sweet friends!:) xoxo
