French Pastry Doily Valentine's

I had a wonderful time in my craft room on Sunday afternoon this week making some little and big Valentine's.

Here are some pictures of the one's made with the French Pastry Doily Die:

I love how cute the card base turned out when using this die!

Design paper is Kaiserkraft - a leftover scrap from my scrap bin.  

Next I made a special "Thank You" and "Valentine" card with one of the felt doilies that I made on Friday night...this card will go to my friends BJ and Mike Dywan -  to thank them for a gift and for their friendship! I give more info about this in the video linked below.
The Canadian Kaleidoscope Doily Die in Cream with red hearts.

  The flower was made with both the French Pastry Tiny Doily Die and the Waltzing Matilda Tiny Doily Die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  The leaves and red doily behind the flower are also Cheery Lynn dies and the large cream flower is Prima I believe.
For those interested - I give more detail on how to make the flower with the tiny doily dies in the You Tube video linked below:

One last card...this one is for a special friend of mine - a soul sister if you will.  I will be mailing it to her in a couple of weeks.... One of my goals this year is to keep practicing with my Copic markers.  I think I have made maybe 6 or 7 cards in the last year  with stamps I have colored?  Most of my coloring jobs have not been fit for a card front as I always goof up!!! LOL!!!  But coloring is very soothing so I will keep at it!

 I tried really hard to work on the hair for this one but I still don't have all the marker colors that I need for blond I tried to improvise...not too sure of the result but I sure love this MFT Stamps "Jolinne" image with the heart banner!  Isn't she sweet! Thanks for taking a look at my cards!  By far this has been the most I have crafted in the last 6 months and I have the ink on my hands to prove it! LOL!                                   :) Jill
