Throw Me Some Kisses Mister!

Welcome to my stop on the Club Scrap Valentines Day blog hop, there’s a whole lotta love in this post! There’s also a Linky Party on the Club Scrap blog for you to share your own Valentine creations. Link up for a chance to win a cool Club Scrap logo t-shirt! The hop features the new Love Ink kit (which I did not get) and past Valentine kits (which I have hoarded been waiting to use)!

I have nieces and nephews in three different states and they all LOVE to get snail mail. What am I saying, I love to get it too! I packed some fun boxes to send…paper heart garland, cool Valentine themed cups, little gift cards for Chick fil A, Starbucks for the big girls, and CANDY! Oh, and chewy chocolate chip cookies for my brother!

They all received their packages today. My sister-in-law sent this video of her little blondies…I ♥ that baby!
I haven’t made Valentines in years and decided to make the Club Scrap Love Blooms G2G cards from 2012. I love this paper…I printed out the card making instructions and tweaked them a bit so I felt like they were mine. I even mailed them on Thursday so that they would arrive on Valentine’s Day! (So not like me, I am a procrastinator…)
I also used stamp images from the 2011 Love Inkorporated and My Funny Valentine collections. 

And last, but not least, my final card. In celebration of Mardi Gras, because I am a Louisiana girl, I made a Mardi Gras card!

 I just got my Dylusions stamps by +Dyan Reaveley in the mail Monday and thought they would be perfect for a Mardi Gras card! I used a quote stamp from the Club Scrap 2011 My Funny Valentine kit and stamped the background with Perfect Medium and dusted with a mix of Perfect Pearls powders. I “watercolored” the embossed Dylusions stamp with Perfect Pearls. Just mix a little water with a tiny bit of PP’s and you have some cool shimmery watercolor paint. The jester hat is designed from a couple of different stamp images. The triangles on the hat are stamp images from the 2014 Club Scrap Reunion kit that I cut out. The purple one is embossed with a background stamp from the 2008 Haberdashery kit, as well as the brim. I sewed the little jingle bells on with waxed thread.
 I loved Roni’s star card from the Constellations blog hop and designed my card base to mimic that style. 
12*12 sheet of cardstock scored in half at  6 inches and turned and scored again to make four 6 inch panels. Two opposing panels are scored in half on a diagonal. I folded on all the score lines and folded the diagonal folds in toward the center. 
Keep hopping to check out all the Valentine surprises! Your next stop is Cathy at The Artful GamutSo, in true Louisiana Mardi Gras style laissez les bon temps roulez and Happy Valentines Day too! “Throw me some(thing) kisses Mister!”

  1. Laissez les bon temps roulez! I originally hail from Houston, TX, so the Mardi Gras card brings back so many memories of king cakes and the like. Thanks for this totally cute card! Oh, and I love the care package you send your nieces and nephews; you must be the best aunt ever :-).


  2. Hi Wendy! Love your cards – especially the Mardi Gras card! Been to NOLA a couple of times. Always a great place to visit. Someday I'll go for Mardi Gras! Have a great day and a wonderful Fat Tuesday!


  3. These are AWESOME Wendy! First, I about died with your adorable video – those kids are so cute! I love the cards you made, but I especially love how clever you were with the jester hat! I didn't even recognize those stamps and you did such a good job of using the Club Scrap stamps in a new way. Thanks for the inspiration!


  4. Wendy! You Mardi Gras card is off the chain (to borrow a phrase from the youth), meaning it is very, very, very, very, very, beautiful! I love the care packets? I may have to case that idea foe mid- term care packages to my Goddaughter and niece!


  5. Thank you for sharing your lovely family with us, Wendy ad they much love your cards! That Mardi Gras card is very cool. Hope you have a lovely Valentines day! xx


  6. Wow Wendy, what a lot of work went into the Mardi Gras card and the hearts project. The Love Blooms cards are so sweet and I think they were my favorite set from a Club Scrap Valentines collection, Well done!!
