I Heart "Sending Hearts"


The January Paper Pumpkin is all about Love. Not just the Valentine's Day kind of love, but all kinds -  anniversary, wedding, even I'm happy to be in lockdown with you kind of love. Included in the kit is a great stamp set, sweet enamel hearts & flowers, die-cuts with an elegant font & of course the snail & mailbox images - so perfect for a "snail-mail" message.

Normally I don't send too many Valentine cards but these aren't normal times so a message of love is in order for all kinds of people. The patterned card bases give the option of pastel Petal Pink or bold Poppy Parade red or a fun combination of both.

The snail stamp is adorable coloured to match his cardstock background, sitting on a mat embossed with the Stitched With Whimsy Dies from the Jan-Jun Mini catty. Here I stamped him, then cut him out & raised him up on Dimensionals.

The heart stamp was stamped on these next cards to send a message to your sweetie in elegant gold or bright red.

This big, bold heart makes a great background stamp on a fresh white mat, bordered with a strip of Poppy Parade & a second strip cut from one of the card bases.

This last card adds some punch to the theme of this wonderful kit. 

Lets all send some love - not via text or e-mail but a personal, heartfelt message delivered right to a mailbox.

I hope that I have inspired you to not only create a personal card, but to get it in the mail as well. We could all use some mail during these times of isolation.

Lipstick Hearts

Is anybody else missing their lipstick? Wearing a mask every time I leave the house is making lipstick rather pointless so maybe that's why I was so drawn to this cute Hearts & Kisses Bundle. It's one of my favourites from the new Jan-Jun Mini Catty & I've had great fun playing with it.

Those luscious lips look good enough to kiss - another no-no during lockdown! Unless you live with your sweetie there's no kissing allowed - unless of course you can do it from 6' away!

This cute stamp set has lips, hearts & endearing sentiments that I used on this card. The inside message makes this card perfect for my g'daughters or besties - a great way to cheer them in the middle of our Covid lockdown here in Ontario.

The hearts sprinkled across the front are cut from the Be Mine Stitched Dies. This is a great collection of dies with stitched hearts, funky & classic, & a straight edged die that adds a scallop. Some of the dies are pictured below.

Be sure to check these items in my online store HERE & remember you can earn free product with a $60. CAD order from the any catalogue during the Sale-a-bration promotion until February 28th. 

Stay in & stay well everyone & be sure to share some love on Valentines Day.
