DT Post by Gwen - Valentine flower garden


Hi this is Gwen from This and That by Gwen .  I have a quick and easy Valentines project to share with you today.

I am seriously loving this new Crate Paper, it is just beautiful!  This little garden was made from an SVGcuts file and I used the Crate Paper Fourteen.  

The beautiful crinkle ribbon is Cranberry and the bakers twine is Spring Green.


The tag was made with the Lacy Banners Metal Dies and stamped with the Build a Valentine stamp set.





Have a great day!

DT post by Heather - Sending you happy little thoughts

Good morning - Heather here from Houses Built of Cards! I don't know if I have said anything before about how much I love jars - but I do! Here is one I made the other day using some ribbon, jute twine, and stamps from My Craft Spot:


I used this sweet set - Butterfly Kisses - it has so many fun sentiments!



I  tied some natural jute twine (available HERE at My Craft Spot) around the top of the jar, tying in a bow, then wrapped some Vanilla Bean crinkle ribbon (available HERE from My Craft Spot) around, tying in a bow on the side. 


For more details on this card, please stop and visit me on my blog - Houses Built of Cards. Have a great day!!!

DT post by Marlene - Valentine be mine



Hi Everyone,

This is Marlene from ScrappinCookie!

Today I have some easy Valentine's Day Home Decor to share with you.

I created this simple Wall Hanging Plaque using the Cricut Valentine's Sweets Digital Cartridge. The postage stamp image was from chipboard - aka Cereal Boxes - cardstock and patterned papers.


The Milkshake was cut from the Cricut Fast Food Cartridge. Inspired by a Strawberry Hot Cocoa Recipe I found on Pinterest, I added some dripping chocolate and a sugar cookie to the milkshake. The "whipped cream" is made from liquid applique dusted with Martha Stewart Glitter.


I stamped the "Valentine" and "Be mine" sentiments from the My Craft Spot "Build A Valentine" Stamp Set and added them to the Milkshake with some "Red" Jute - available HERE at My Craft Spot - centered with a Pearl.


I hope I have inspired you to use your My Craft Spot Stamps in your Valentine's Day Home Decor.

DT post by GiGi - Bee Mine


Hello everyone! This is GiGi from The Cricut Bug here to share a card that I made using My Craft Spot's Build A Valentine stamp set.
 
This week the challenge here at My Craft Spot is "Bling It Up" Use Glitter/Bling on your project. I thought this would be another fun card for inspiration. You have until Monday to link up and the prize this week is the very stamp set I used on this card.


And here is my card!

That sentiment is perfect with the bee bear!



Well, I did go a little glitter crazy on this card, but I think it turned out super cute. 
The card I hand cut around the bee hive which was cut from Create A Critter and I added stickles around the entire thing. I also added a glittered heart to the top.
I cut the bear from Teddy Bear Parade and added hearts to the antenna. I stamped the face with a Peachy Keen face and added glitter to the wings and heart antenna. 
To finish I added some gems and stamped the sentiment banner using the Build A Valentine stamp set. 
I hope you all liked seeing my card and thanks for stopping in today! Have a great day!

DT post by Marlene - Always and Forever

 

Hello Everyone! 

This is Marlene from ScrappinCookie and I'm back today to share with you another Valentine's Day/Love Card I've made using the  "Always & Forever" Stamp Set. 


For today's card I used another one of my FAVORITE sentiments from this set, "Always & Forever". I stamped the sentiment onto a label frame cut from the Cricut Craft Room Basics.


Some of "Hot Pink" Crinkle Ribbon was used to make a double loop bow. The bow was centered with some "Kraft" Trendy Twine - available HERE at My Craft Spot - and a cream Mulberry Rose sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist.


I cut a small heart from the Cricut Craft Room Basics and embellished it with some Martha Stewart Glitter and a small pearl - PERFECT for this week's My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #83 BLING IT UP.


I hope to have inspired you to use My Craft Spot Stamps on your Valentine Cards!

If you haven't already joined us for this week's My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #83 BLING IT UP, you still have time!! The challenge remains open until Monday, January 28th 11:59PM MST

DT post by Sherrie - My favorite place is inside your hug

Scroll down or click HERE to see the winners from last weeks challenge.

Hi Everyone! This is Sherrie from Sherrie Scraps with Passion here to share a card with you today. With Valentine's Day around the corner, I thought I would try and start on a few more cards so I am not rushing as it gets closer.

Here is my card for some Valentine inspiration using My Craft Spot Always & Forever stamp set. The perfect set to have for your Valentine cards!


I made this cute heart shaped card using my gypsy and welding the shapes together for the base. I cut them at 5.99 x 5.61 from the Create A Critter 2 cartridge. The smaller heart shape is cut at 5.75 x 5.39 and embossed with a sizzix folder-sorry don't have the name on this one but it has a beautiful flower/heart pattern on it.


 I also cut the cute little koala bear from the Create A Critter cartridge at 3.32 x 4.34 and used the hide feature so I could stamp the face using the PK critter face set. The little flower is cut at 2" from the Artiste cartridge which I inked up a bit along with some of the other pieces with Tim Holtz fired brick. The sweet sentiment in the heart is My Craft Spot Always & Forever stamp set. I added a crinkle ribbon bow and the Divine Valentine Twist twine is from My Craft Spot. The fun button and flourishes are from Recollections which I purchased at Michael's.

I hope you like my card and if you would like to see more about this, please come

DT post by Marlene - My heart belongs to you!

 

Hi Everyone! 

Marlene here from ScrappinCookie

Thank You for joining me today at My Craft Spot!

Today I have a Valentine's Day card to share with you using the "Always & Forever" Stamp Set. 


One of my FAVORITE sentiments from this set is the "My {Heart} Belongs to You." and is the inspiration of my card today. 


I took the "Heart" and suspended it from a circle opening made with my Spellbinders Nestabilities Dies. I then embellished the heart with a small pink mulberry rose and a  "Black" Twinery Twine bow.


As a final touch, I added some Stickles(GLITTER) around the edges of the Heart and a few clear Rhinestones(BLING) to fit this week's My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #83 BLING IT UP.


The inside of the card was stamped with the "Happy Valentine's Day" Sentiment from the "Build A Valentine" Stamp Set. 


I hope I have inspired to use the My Craft Spot Stamps in a Fun and Creative way.
