Create a Critter Valentines

I used Create a Critter 2 for the Koala card and Create a Critter 1 for the dinosaur card.
I weilded both cards in CCR and then cut the pieces.  For the dinosaur I then cut out a heart and stamped the be mine on it.  The heart is already in the cut for the koala so I just found a stamp that worked.

Create a critter2 valentine

One of my favorite cartridges of all time is the Create a Critter (original and 2).  I just had to use the bear from the cartridge to create a card.  I usually case cards on pinterest or other sources, but I am trying to build my confidence and come up with more of my own designs.  For this card I used scraps of paper (don't you just love when you use your scraps instead of adding to them). 
I used a stamp from SU.

Holiday cakes valentines card

Here is a card I made for valentines.  I used the elephant (cut at 3.5 inches), and the scallop with hearts (cut at 1inch).  I used a red mat and layered paper printed in my Imagine from the Bubble gum stripes cartridge.  I added glitter to one heart and the elephant ear.  I stamped the tag from Happy Heart Day (SU), and coloured the hearts with a red marker, then used bakers twine on it.  The elephant and hearts are popped up. The ink is Darkest Night from My Pink Stamper.

Thank You, simple card

Here is a quick and easy card I made,  I used two stamp sets, and three ink colours. 
For the sentiment I used sassy salutations and I stamped it with My Pink Stampers Darkest Night hybrid ink.
The flower stamps come from CTMH called I am, I stamped the flowers using Poppy Red from Stampin Up.  I stamped the largest flower with full strenghth ink, the mid size flower I stamped off and then stamped the flower, the smallest flower I stamped off twice and then stamped the flower,
the centre of the flowers were stamped with Stampin Up So Saffron.
I also used white cardstock and Poppy Red cardstock, then added some ribbon from Costco.
