A few CAS Valentine cards...

I've been creating like CRAZY over the last few weeks.  I'm having a BLAST stamping all sorts of projects in a zillion different styles & today I have three Clean and Simple cards to share.

First up ~ It was freezing cold yesterday so I hid in my studio with the fireplace roaring & played with my Chevron Stripes Coveralls Background stamp by Gourmet Rubber Stamps.  This stamp is a HUGE background and there is so much you can do with it!  Not only can you make great backgrounds on your cards, but here I stamped it in red ink on kraft cardstock and then used my heart die cut to trim it out for my tag.  Then I also used the same stamp for the turquoise border and just trimmed a 3/4" strip to add on my card.

For the adorable Sizzix tag, I simply stamped the lined stamp from the Noteworthy set in Sky Blue Memento Ink and then added the LOVE YOU sentiment in Love Letter Red Memento Ink.  After I added the Chevron heart to the tag, I popped up a little polka-dot embossed heart & then some red/white twine.  My finishing touch on the card is the punched edge at the top.  I love it ~ so simple but so fun!




My next two cards are for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge this week.  The challenge is Long & Short ~ which means one long side and one short side to the card.


For both of my cards I used the Just Wanted To Say stamp set for the telephone and then I used the sentiment from Happy Heart Day on the first card & Everyday Sayings for the second card.  All of the sets are by Gourmet Rubber Stamps.




Go play along on the CAS-ual Friday challenge this week ~ it's super fun and they have a new challenge each week.

Loving all of these cards Kendra! I really like the first one with the chevron heart. What color of red ink did you use? I am looking for a new red.

These are great...I love the red with kraft...nice combo. And the old fashioned phone against the white doily really pops.
