Valentines Day is one of my favorite holidays!

on a date with my husband or staying in and having family movie night.  The options are 
endless as long as I am with my family and sharing the love it is the best.


I love all the adorable Valentines Day images at Tiddly Inks.  For my card I used the

Pink And Main Scentsational



Welcome back to Robin's Crafting Nest!

Today I am working with some adorable stamps from Pink & Main.

Do you ever have a smell that you just can't get enough of?

As my family knows my favorite smell is Skunk! 

I think I may be the only one in the world who's favorite smell is skunk.  My entire family cringes when I say it is my favorite smell, they just don't understand.  I don't know why it is my favorite but I love that smell.

When I saw the Scentsational stamp set from Pink & Main I knew it was one that needed to be added to my stamp stash.  This stamp set comes with 4 adorable skunks, 3 scent filled sentiments, and lots of additional scene setting stamps.  Aren't they adorable!

Karen Burniston Dies



Welcome back to Robin's Crafting Nest!


Today I am moving a little out of my comfort zone... A card with no coloring!  My card is made with just die cuts.  I have these fantastic dies from Karen Burniston that make really cool cards.  I am using three different die sets on this card: Snowman, Word Set 3 - Holiday, and Twist Panel Pop-up.  Now let me tell you the Twist Panel Pop-up make the cutest Pop-up card centers.  When your recipient opens the card the inside pops up and twists open to display your beautiful creation.  All the dies work so well together along with the rest of her die sets and they were really easy to use.  I love how they come with different layering options to help make card designing easier.

Lets take a look.  I started out with plain blue card stock.  I used one of my many snowflake stamps and stamped it with a darker blue ink to make the background.  The snowman and the words were as simple as picking out the paper I wanted to use and cutting them out with the dies.  Just layer the different pieces of the snowman which are all included in the die set and you have an adorable snowman you can accessorize in any way you want.  I added some bling to the center of the snowflake and his buttons.



Now for the inside of the card.  The Twist Panel Pop-up dies were so easy to use.  Karen Burniston has tutorials online in both paper and video format.  I watched the video to make sure I did it correctly the first time.  It was so much easier then I thought it was going to be.  It is a little intimidating at first but once you try it you will want to make many cards this way.  It is such a cute design that can be used for all kinds of occasions.  Just change up your papers and the accessories you use along with the die set.  The set also comes with an adorable banner and some hearts that I didn't use today on this card but will definitely use in the future.

Since I had the different pieces of the snowman I decided I would put different parts of him on the different panels.  This allowed me to make a cute sentiment to go along with the piece asking "Do you want to build a snowman?"




I wanted to provide a closeup of the sentiment and assembled snowman on the inside of the card.  I really enjoyed working with these dies and it made designing an adorable Christmas card really simple.

Di's Digi Stamps Candle Light Mice




Welcome back to Robin's Crafting Nest

This week I created a card that I have never tried before.  I made a Double Gate Fold Card.

I started with 2 pieces of white cardstock that were 8 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches.

I used my Scor-Pal and scored both pieces of cardstock at 2 1/8 inches and at 4 1/4 inches.
Adhere the two large 4 1/4 inch sections together and fold on the score lines to get the Double Gate Fold.  See picture below to see what the fold will look like.

Now that I have my Double Gate Fold Card I needed to decorate it.

I started with the adorable image from Di's Digi Stamps called "Candle Light Mice".  I thought these two were just adorable.  I colored the image with my Copic Markers and then cut die cut it with my Double Stitched Circles dies.  Which gave me this adorable round image to use.





I felt like the inside of the card needed a little something extra.  I decided to use my new Nuvo Aqua Flow Watercolor pens to create a watercolor background and my Dancing Snowflake Frame to frame the sentiment from Power Poppy's Peony Muse stamp set "Sending Love and Light Your Way".  I thought the sentiment went so well with this image because they are lighting the candle.




Double Gate Fold image so you can see how the card folds.




Copic Markers used are:

Mice: E31, E33, E35, E57, E79, R81, E51, E53
Holly Leaves: G24, G28, G29
Holly Berries: R24, R29, R59
Candle: E41, E42, E43, E50
Candle Light: YR15, Y00, Y18, Y21
