Today I have a couple cards, one made with a stencil and single die, the other with all dies.
 I wasn't fortunate enough to get my hands on the MFT LO♥E Centerpieces die set for Valentine card creating, but did manage to get  a stencil.  I used translucent embossing paste mixed with black craft paint and a heart die to create the closest thing I could to that die and made a shaker card:)!!...
For the inside of the shaker, I used a Memory box and Mama Elephant dies. 

 My second card uses a bunch of the dies that I got with another MFT die set...all the bold block words from the set, and a couple heart dies from another set of MFT dies..
 I adhered black cardstock to the back of the white panel for the "love you" and used a shiny metallic magenta die cut heart that I glossy accented.  I love love:)!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. Wow, I was positive that you had used a silhouette for that second one - the placement of each die is perfectly straight and perpendicular! You are a star!

  2. These are both fab but the second is amazing how you placed all those dies!! Gorgeous design :)

  3. Wonderful, bold Valentines! Well done with those dies and I love the black and white contrast.

  4. Love both these cards. Had never thought to make black embossing paste but now I just have to try it. I love embossing paste, so much potential.

  5. Such beautiful cards Lisa. I am so impressed that you created your own of what you wanted and it is fabulous. I love all that white with a pop of color using the word dies.

  6. Great cards! Love the clean graphic look and the touch of fun with the shaker on the LOVE card and the magenta heart in the Hugs and Kisses card.

  7. Great card shaker. The perfect combination of colors.


I so appreciate your comments...thank you, so much, for taking the time to write:)!! Hugs!! Lisa
