I've been crafting up a storm this Valentine's Day and wanted to share all the adorable cards, tags and projects I've been making for Vanlikethecar Designs!!
1. Chanel-Inspired Valentine. My friend request a card for his Chanel-loving wife so I wanted to somehow mimic those gorgeous quilted Chanel bags.
Supplies: Patterned Paper (My Mind's Eye); Cardstock (American Crafts); Stamps (Lawn Fawn, Inkadinkadoo); Digital Files (Silhouette Online Store).
2. Marine Corps Valentine. This valentine was custom ordered for a Marine Corps dad from his Navy daughter. The flag and Marine Corps seal are both hand stamped, hand colored and then covered in glossy accents for a three dimensional look.
Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts, Bazzil); Stamps (Unity); Other (Glossy Accents).
3. Conversation Hearts Pop-Up Valentines. I love the look of long cards that fit inside a business envelope. These are embellished with a rainbow of conversation hearts and have a pop up greeting on the inside.
Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts, Martha Stewart); Baker's Twine (Twinery); Digital Files (Silhouette Online Store).
4. Love Bites Valentine. This is a shape card for a little boy who loves sharks. I initially wanted to place the heart banner on the outside but it didn't look right for some reason. So I placed it on the inside along with some letter stickers saying "Love Bites."
Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts, Martha Stewart); Stamps (A*Muse); Letter Stickers (Echo Park); Digital Files (Hero Arts).
5. Curious George Loves You. My daughter is a Curious George fanatic so I made this cute little card to look like Curious George is holding a banner holding her name. Super simple but I think she'll love it.
Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts); Stamps (Lawn Fawn).
6. I Cereal-ously Like You Valentine Tags. This was inspired by something a friend saw on Pinterest and she wanted to make them for her daughter's preschool classmates. I couldn't resist also making some for Charlotte.
Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts, Georgia Pacific); Embossing Folder (Provocraft); Digital Files (Silhouette Online Store).
7. I Like You a Ton Valentine Tags. These are some cute tags for a friend to add to her son's treat bags.
Supplies: Cardstock (Georgia Pacific, Martha Stewart); Baker's Twine (Twinery); Digital Files (Lettering Delights).
8. I Like You to the Core Valentine Tags. I made these tags for Charlotte's classmates. I wrapped a bag of apple chips in the lunch bag and just tied it all together with some green yarn.
Supplies: Cardstock (Georgia Pacific); Digital Files (Lettering Delights).
9. Candy Boxes and Tags. These are the little candy boxes I made and filled with homemade chocolates for Charlotte's teachers. For the tags, I simply hand stamped some cute images/ sentiments onto shipping tags and colored them in.
Supplies: Shipping Tags (Avery); Stamps (A*Muse); Cardstock (Recollections; Martha Stewart); Digital Files (Loni Stevens).
10. I Love You Frame. And finally, here is a frame I made for Justin and I. Since you can use dry erase markers on glass, Justin and I write reasons why we love each other on the frame every day. It's a good way for us to keep things in perspective. I will post a tutorial on how to make your own soon.
Supplies: Patterned Paper (We R Memory Keepers); Vinyl (Silhouette); Digital Files (Kerri Bradford).
Whew...that was a lot of crafting for Valentine's Day!!! Thank you again for all the support and for dropping by.
Project 100 Update: 46 down, 54 to go. There were three conversation heart cards and I'm counting each candy box as a separate project.
