There are few more

Hello there! Did you enjoy yourself with your loves one during Valentine's day? I sure hope so! I didn't quite get to post all these cards before Valentine's day as I misplaced my memory card. So I ended up borrow from my friend. Here you go...

Same as above. I created this card with the same color combination and stamp sets along with coordinating die. I cut the sentiment strip with my zip zap scissor just to add extra element onto this card. 

And how about car with full of loves? As I wanted to keep the love die cuts as the focal point of this car, I decided to stamp the car stamp straight on to the card stock and colored with light grey marker. Then adhered with small buttons at the light of the 'tutu' car.

Next up is 

"Thinking of You, Always". Simple as that. All the kisses speaks how much you love your partner. Ha! I added the love shape die cuts at the end as it will be quite empty with only the kisses alone. 

Another simple and clean card. I then realized sometimes simple is better off than adding too much of details on it. It can simple as just adhere a large love die cut at the centre and add a simple sentiment at the bottom. Simple as that. You just have to play with the layout and sketch out the ideas then work from there. 

Now, the last card for today post. With unusual yellow, grey, red color combination, I'm not sure how this color combo will turn out but the result ain't that bad. Maybe it's only me..

I also played around with the flower die that I got from Papertrey a while ago. 

Thanks so much for visiting me... I hope you've enjoyed my cards! Have a great weekend!

Xoxo, M

hello love

In about 4 days time, it's world's XOXO's day. Or whatever. Valentine's day is approaching and unless some stroke of whirlwind romance hits me, I will be alone this year. 

This is fine with me because I do not mind to share the love with my family. With steak and red wine and/ or some chocolate fondue perhaps. Ha!

Now, with Valentine's day being just a few days away, the love bug finally decided to hit me recently. I managed to made few love love cards and honestly. I love it! Instead of sitting there and watching tv, I decided it's about time to pick up the tools and make some cards. No regrets. Very simple and clean design for this time.

Ideas were flying around the room the other night and I came out with this....

I was also super inspired after created the first card, and couldn't wait to use the same technique by die-cutting the alphabets and create another valentine's card. 

It's definitely simple and clean design for this time. Simple and clean are usually not my design style yet I need to learn to be 'simple minded' some time. 

Maybe I should post some of the details of the cards. It seem very simple and I tell ya... it is simple to make. I'm sure your partner will value it so much if you decide to make something (card, cake, cupcake etc.) for her/him. I'm not saying you must create something like this but at least some words that will cheer up his/her day. Be creative. 

Ready for much more easier and simple card? I'm ready and I'm surprise with the outcome. Love... love it! I think it's only takes about 6 minutes to create each cards below. 

Good grief, that was fast and easy. I think I'm in love. Happy indeed!! I hope with this post, it will inspire you, you, you and you... to do/make something special for your loves one. Mom, dad, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, neighbor, nephews, nieces, friends or even your kitty kitty cat or pup! Anyone.

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy day, dear friends!

xo, M

Updated: WOW! How can I forget this card?! It's one of my fav among all these. Lucky that I doubt checked my photos before I dooze off for tonight. Here you go. "You + Me = Forever"
