another Valentine for my sweetie

Amuse From the Heart
I made this fun and oh so true Valentine for my sweetie. When I first saw this sentiment included in A Muse Studio’s From the Heart, I knew Max would be getting a card!

To make your own watercolor backgrounds like these, grab a large clear block and wet it with water. Drip some A Muse Studio Splash ink onto the block and blend with a wet sponge. Press onto Sugar cardstock and voila! Have fun experimenting with different color combinations. With over 40 Splash ink colors you can have a LOT of fun with this!

Max is actually getting two Valentine’s Day cards this year. On the other card I profess to love him more than BACON! BACON, people! A Muse Studio Love is All You Need allows you to build some fun mix and match sentiments for your handmade cards.

Both of Max’s Valentine’s Day cards feature bold sentiments from the A Muse Studio January Collection available until January 31st, while supplies last.

Ever make a card that pushes you outside your comfort zone? This is that card! I made the tag and put it on the Shell Cardstock card base but it was too plain. That’s when things got crazy!
A Muse Studio Be My Valentine
I grabbed my A Muse Studio Apple and Sage Ink Pads and the bold flower and leaf stamps from Amuse Stamps Be My Valentine.

A Muse Studio Mocha Me Happy Handmade Valentine for Teacher

Do you make Valentines for your children’s teacher? I do! My children and I bring handmade Valentine cards and Valentine treats to the teachers, aids and administrators that pour so much of themselves into my children’s lives. BTW you can see what we did for the teachers at Christmas time here, here and here.
Amuse Stamps Mocha Me Happy
This is one of the teacher Valentine’s Day cards I designed this year. It was inspired by two challenges Color Throwdown #376 use Shell, Sky, Kraft and White and SOS #235 which was a 3,2,1 challenge. I used 3 – hearts, 2 – stamps from A Muse Studio Mocha Me Happy, and 1 – Heart Doily. I made this Valentine for the teacher, but Mocha Me Happy is perfect to make cards for any coffee lover. For that matter, Mocha Me Happy is a great stamp set to make cards for the lover of puns too!
Here is another card for the SOS #235 3,2,1 challenge. This handmade Valentine’s Day card has 3 sentiments, 2 – coffee cups with hearts and 1 – ribbon and button embellishment. FUN!

handmade Valentine’s Day Card – I love you more than bacon

love is all you need
This year I made my husband two handmade Valentine’s Day cards. This is one of them. I couldn’t resist! I am sharing his Valentine in the Mod Squad Love is in the Air challenge. If you are here from the challenge, thank you for stopping by!

I got the Love is All You Need stamp set from the A Muse Studio January Collection. Love is All You Need is a fun graphic stamp set, with large letters; L,O,V,E and X. Those large solid letters are perfect for stamping and layering with A Muse Studio opaque inks.

The Love is All You Need stamp set also includes nine tag lines. My favorite of those tag lines is “you more than bacon.” I knew right away Max would be getting a handmade Valentine with that tag line! I also like the tag line “you to the moon and back”.

You can see a card I made “to the moon and back” when you pop over to my Facebook page. While you’re on Facebook, don’t forget to like my page so you don’t miss any of the crafty inspiration and information I share there.
