Valentine’s Day

I’m not a huge Valentine’s Day celebrator. Why do we have only one day to tell the people in our lives that we love them? I think it should be an everyday event! Flowers, and dinner and movies are all nice, but wouldn’t it be nicer to randomly surprise someone with something heartfelt and meaningful? That is one of the reasons I love cards. They are made by me, for that someone special, with love. Now that is something to celebrate!


cardstock, dye inks, corner rounder punch: Stampin’ Up
watercolor paper: Strathmore
punch: EK Success
alphabet: American Crafts
other: twine, straws

Lay blobs of ink color on a palette. Use a spray bottle to really wet your watercolor paper. The wetter it is, the more the colors will move. Dip the end of a straw into a puddle of ink and blow the droplet onto the watercolor paper. Start with light colors and work your way through to the darker colors. Finish with accents that pop off the colorful background.
