Pam Sparks Typewriter Valentine

I had great fun using stamps and dies to make Valentines last week! Our family party was yesterday so now I can show what I made. I don’t have a picture of one of them and two others didn’t get finished! I always run out of time!

This typewriter (CG280 My Type) card is Hero Arts stamps except for the row of hearts…it’s from Printworks.  I used the Misti to stamp so I could get this super, wonderful black inking!  love it!

Pam Sparks World Valentine

This one is the size of an ATC and uses Reverse Confetti’s world die and an Avery Elle sentiment.  The background embossing folder is from Cuttlebug.  The woodgrain stamp is from All Night Media.

Pam Sparks Airplane Valentine

I made a few of these for the younger grandsons…Avery Elle stamp and die sets and a Hero Arts sentiment stamp. Silver Wink of Stella Brush Marker on the wings and more.

Pam Sparks Fishing Valentine

Here’s the Memory Box Rectangle Frames die with a partial cut heart die, also from Memory Box.  The sentiment stamps and Little Bits Fishing pole and Fish are from Taylored Expressions.  The background is the All Night Media woodgrain stamp again.

Pam Sparks Tree Ring Valentine

I was inpsired by Sarah G for this card. I used the Winnie and Walter Tree Ring stamp, a Memory Box heart die, WPlus9 you die and the Hero Arts sentiment again.  Oh the arrow stamp is from My Favorite Things.

I made envelopes for all the Valentines using the old penmanship lined paper we had in grade school. Fun!

Whew, I could’ve made Valentines for a couple more weeks… it’s like Christmas cards once I get started I don’t want to quit! lol

Now, it’s time to clean up! lol All 17 of the grandkids loved the Valentine exchange party we had yesterday afternoon and hey, the adults had a great time too!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share with you. Happy stamping!

Memory Box and WPlus9…





Christmas in July is always so fun! I have two more cards with the Memory Box Chatfords Wreath to share today.  I love how these turned out!  I threw in some teal card-stock to throw me off the traditional Christmas colors path!  But wait…keep scrolling…I hopped back on with the second card!  Another card with this wreath HERE.





I die cut the wreath two times from two different green card-stocks, kept all the pieces and just interchanged them between the two cards.

I die cut the alphabets with score tape on the wrong side of the card-stock so they’d be stickers. It works so slick!  Easy to line up when you use the smallest size banner too! JOY is cut from metallic gold card-stock.




The white just makes it pop! Some pearls and Liquid pearls and it’s time to celebrate!  or bust out singing a carol or two!  : )

I’ll link up the dies and everything I used in inlinkz below.

I used the sketch from the Get Sketchy Challenge at WPlus9HERE


the challenge over at CAS-ology is Line – HERE


the challenge at Addicted To Stamps is CAS – HERE

I cut a quarter panel with the WPlus9 banner long die… it was the perfect amount of space I wanted for the ‘gap’ and an easy way to get a perfect gap! I lined each side with Washi Tape.  Stamped the Blanket Stitch flowers with chalk inks, the sentiments with Versafine black and all with the MISTI.

Thanks for visiting today!  Happy, creative weekend to you!
