It's going to be a quiet night here, but I am fine with that because it's been a very busy week. While Janet and I were out shopping yesterday she asked if I had watched Jennifer McGuire's video on chevrons. I hadn't, but decided to watch it last night. Like ALL of Jennifer's videos it was amazing and I decided to create a chevron of my own.
I looked through my pink, red, and valentine papers and chose 5 of them to create a chevron that could be used on some of my valentines. I followed Jennifer's instructions exactly and then cut up some of the chevron to create this first valentine.
The flowers were created with a Wavy Stem Trio wooden stamp from Denami Design and the text was created with a wooden stamp from Victorine Originals.
I used one of my standard heart Nestabilities to cut a heart from my chevron. Then I mounted the chevron heart onto a scalloped white tag heart that was created from a scalloped heart Nestability die. I pierced the edges of the white heart to make it look like lace.
The text was stamped with a Lockhart wooden stamp. The tiny hearts on either side of the text and at the top of the chevron heart are brads.
I used the negative stencil that was left after I die cut the heart to create my third card.
As you can see I used Denami Design's Wavy Stem Trio wooden stamp on this card too. I found the shiny white heart shaped buttons in my stash.
I used another piece of my chevron on today's 4th card.
Yesterday I found some valentine stickers in the dollar bin at JoAnn's. One of the stickers was a tiny envelope. I took it apart and used it as a pattern so I could create additional envelopes. I used a punch to create most of the hearts. Some of them are epoxy stickers from my stash.
Hope you have a wonderful night!
