Valentine Ideas

In my post today I am sharing two cards and one project I recently created
The cards and project were for my card making class I lead for a group of close friends
We have been doing our little class for at least 4 years and I have always enjoyed our time of creating
We always meet for dinner, having a relaxing time eating, chatting and catching up with each other
Then we head to my house for a little CRAFTY time
We started with this classic Red, Black and White card
I found some really fun chalkboard paper oval labels by Recollections
The sentiment is from My Favorite Things, inked white and white embossing powder
We finished the card with smudging white ink to give it that chalkboard look
Added a red grosgrain ribbon/bow and adhesive rhinestones
Next we made a really cute Valentine treat bag that I saw on PINTEREST
I little brown bag with a doily tucked inside
I used some coordinating Valentine paper scraps to cover the lower portion of the bag
Sentiment was stamped on red ink on the bottom strip of paper
I also used a circle sentiment from My Favorite Things attached to a toothpick
I tied a piece of twine around the toothpick and added 3 red rhinestones to finish the project
The treat bag is perfect size for a mini bag of M & M's
And the last card is my FAVORITE one, because it involves WASHI tape and the color PURPLE
Add three torn strips of Washi tape to the card in various lengths
I cut the heart from Cricut cartridge and added black doodle lines around the edge
Sentiment and hearts from My Favorite Things
To finish the card - pink button with twine bow
Entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafters Café - #50 Must have Hearts
Our Daily Bread - #190 Love themed/Valentine Non Traditional colors (No Red or Pink)
 Ribbon Carousel - #90 - use Washi Tape
I really hope you enjoyed my post today
I love each one of these cards/project and was so pleased with the way they turned out
I love sharing ideas and creations with others and appreciate you stopping by to check them out
