So last year I have a bunch of articles about Valentine’s day and inexpensive (and yet still utterly romantic) ideas for how to spend a wonderful day with your sweetheart. I also gave some Valentine’s card making ideas.

This year I thought it would be fun to do something a bit different. On Thursday, February 11, 2010 I am thinking of hosting a live stream Valentine’s Cardmaking tutorial starting at 5 PST / 8 EST. I thought this would be a fun way to show how to make cards, test out a camcorder’s webcaming ability and get the crafting community together. I’m still debating on which streaming site to use so stay posted for more information! I will be both updating the blog with more information and sending it out via twitter so please add @Lhriangel for more for the latest updates when they happen. And I hope to see/chat with you all on Thursday night!

I have some last minute ideas for your Valentine if you are still looking to create an extra special card! The other day I had a “card party” with two of my good friends and we made a bunch of cards. These are the ones I made to give you inspiration. The stamps I used were from Stamp It Up! and the cards were precut and came with envelopes in a collection of pinks and browns. I also used some Valentine’s ribbon from Marshal’s. All in all these cards took approximately 2 hours, but that included the design process.

Valentine 1

This card uses three colors of paper, six stamps and three stamp pads.

Valentine 2

This card used three colors of paper, two different stamps, two colors of ink and a small piece of ribbon.

Valentine 3

This simple card used three colors of paper, three stamps and two ink colors. A great idea for an simple, elegant card.

Valentine 4

This is one of my favorite cards. I used three different heart stamps, three colors of paper, three ink pads, and a small strip of ribbon. It was made especially for my friend Charleen who is very interested in card making and scrapbooking.

I hope you enjoy my card designs. Have a great Valentine’s Day!
