Happy Valentine's Day!

by Holly Brown for Cheery Lynn Designs
I hope you're enjoying the spirit of St. Valentine's Day. I thought this card was so 'happy' and wanted to use it as a greeting to you. But I cannot take credit for it . . . it comes from today's posting on the Cheery Lynn Designs' blog. Click on this link to see how Holly Brown made this card . . .

Here's another Valentine card that Marj is showing at the store:

I really like this cute card that could be used very easily for Easter, or any occasion for someone that you know who loves bunnies. From the Poppy Stamp blog . . .

I'm really having fun with the Elk stamp from Earth Arts' Animal Spirit stamps.

by Debbie Gaetz
I stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with Tsukineko's silver embossing powder. A scrap piece of washi paper was placed on the card base. A Spellbinders' die was used on the black card stock. Candi's were colored with IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko Radiant Neon in Radiant Green and adhered to each corner. A very quick and easy card to make that I hope will please the elk-hunting recipient.

The Earth Art's Animal Spirits Stamp Trunk Show continues through tomorrow, Saturday. Please be sure to stop in and pick out your favorites. We're so appreciative of Gwen Evans for leaving the stamp selection at Art 'n Soul to allow everyone time to look through them all, including the 4 new releases!

This card is on the back table next to the stamp bins.

Here's another Valentine card from my friend Cathy Andronicou who is on the Penny Black Design Team as well as IMAGINE Crafts. I love how she stamped the hearts onto kraft card stock with the new Radiant Neon inks and colored in the kraft color with a white marker. I think this would make a great card for other occasions involving 'the heart' and you could use a different word stamp to match that occasion.
