Happy Valentines Day (A Snarky Card)

Hi friends! I wanted to pop in and wish you a happy Valentines Day and since I know not everyone one loves this holiday I thought I’d make a funny card. Honestly I about died laughing when I saw these stamps at the Lost Coast Designs booth at the last stamp show I went to. Remember the “before times” when we could go places and do things…

This is not a sponsored post, I just love these stamps from Lost Coast Designs and Carmen’s Veranda! BTW Use coupon code QUARANTINE to get 25% off any purchase of stamps at Lost Coast excluding Katzelkraft and Stencil girl products. *Carmen’s Veranda and Lost Coast Designs are owned by the same person, Linda will combine orders if made on the same day to save you a shipping charge or to meet shipping minimums and refund the difference.

Supplies:

  • American Gothic Couple Steampunk style (Lost coast designs)
  • Funny saying (Carmen’s Veranda) There are loads of funny sentiments here, some are a bit raunchy but they are pretty hilarious!
  • Cardstock & patterned paper (unknown, probably American Crafts)
  • Mini playing cards from a bubble gum machine
  • Memento black ink
  • Alcohol markers (random assortment)

That’s all from me! I hope you are enjoying this day however you wish! I’ll be spending it with my hubby:) Love and happy crafting to you!

  1. Lindsay,

    Happy Valentines Day to my favorite redhead other than my dad.

    I used you idea. Thanks.

    What do you think of my feather? Going to glue some tiny rocks randomly over the ones in the picture.

    You so inspire me thanks. Keep up the good work. Hubby even knows who you are that is a huge compliment.

    I want to send you a very pretty rock or two, could I get your address please? I bought some at a garage sale and they are just so lovely. I too have a thing for rocks. When my grandson lived with us (he was 6) I went to take the stuff out of his pockets and wondered why his jeans were so heavy. Well because the pockets were full of little tiny rocks.

    Gloria

  2. I enjoy watching your U-tube videos. I particularly enjoy your frugal insights and your delivery. You speak very well and listening to you is a joy as well as relaxing.

    QUESTION: I have one question about restoring inkpads. In a recent video you suggested using denatured alcohol to revive old pigment ink inkpads. What is used for dye-based inkpads? Glycerin perhaps? Wouldn’t want to ruin my drying-out pads.

    If you could answer my question by email I’d be very thankful. I don’t usually look at the comments you get being just an amateur looking for creative tips.
    Thank you very much for being such a great teacher and inspiration. I greatly appreciate your talent.

    1. if a pad is out of ink it’s best to use a reinker for that pad but if it is just dry you can make a refresher by adding a tablespoon of glycerin to a 4oz spray bottle of water, shake and spray on the dye pad. Use glycerin on a pigment pad and denatured alcohol on a solvent pad like stazon.
