Valentines Day Cards - Authentique Cards

Do you send Valentine's cards? 
 I like sending Valentines cards to a bunch of folks; our children, my parents, relatives, and some good friends.  My husband says Valentine's cards should be between romantic relationships. Nonsense. I enjoy sharing the love.  

These are the reasons I send cards:   I love making cards.  Everyone loves getting happy mail.  We aren't in a position to travel and visit everyone we love so we need to show our love in other ways.  That means I'm sending cards for Valentines Day.  

 Today I'm sharing Valentines cards created using three Authentique paper collection ( still available while supplies last.) The cards are a blend of blend Authentique's Flawless Collection and Authentique's Love Notes Collection  and  Authentique Paper - Romance Collection .

I can't believe it's time to start the Valentine's cards because I literally barely finished getting the Christmas cards out the door. 

The first card is a blend of  the Love Notes Collection collection  and the Romance Collection.  The  beautiful fuchsia tones of Love Notes are so striking with the black and cream of the Romance papers used. 

The dies and kitty stamps used today are from Spellbinders; the kitty stamps are from Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month for January 2021 and have been stamped onto watercolor paper and colored with Spellbinders/ Fun Stampers Journey -  Color Splash Watercolor Pencils.  

The ornate heart die is from Spellbinders Large Die of the Month for January - so versatile to use in countless ways.  The scalloped border die is also Spellbinders - Curved Borders One die , which has been retired.

The darling kitties represent my sweet gray triplet kitties we call the Grays ( Eddie Gray, Frannie Gray and Macy Gray).  They are identical and use that feature to the best of their crazy kitty abilities - always together, virtually unidentifiable and full of adventure and curiosity x 3!   

As I mentioned, the kitty stamp is from Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month for January and has been stamped onto watercolor paper with  Spellbinders/Fun Stampers Journey Dark Roast True Color Fusion Ink Pad ( with my MISTI stamping platform for accuracy).  The images have been colored using Spellbinder/ Fun Stampers Journey -  Color Splash Watercolor Pencils  which are bringing me such joy lately because they are easy to use for someone with no watercolor skills.

  1. Fantastic designs! I especially like how you positioned the trio of gold hearts in the opposite direction of the damask-y looking hearts in that elegant black and cream paper.
