OWH Be My Valentine Blog Hop - Awesome!

I had a great time doing the Valentine Blog Hop.  I still haven't made it all the way through everyone's blogs, but I will!  I'm making a card for every blog I visit, so it's going to take me a
I managed to make 17 cards yesterday, doing all sorts of various techniques and using stuff I had in drawers forever.  It was such a great day.  (I stamp and tuck as I go, so be forgiving of the envies sticking out the backs of the cards in the photos.)
  Dixie's card was fun because I realized I bought the scalloped Spellbinders hearts last year.  Then when I tackled Sandy's vest card, I found the herringbone embossing folder that I bought at a stamp show last year and had never used.

 The next thing I got to was the gatefold card.  I whipped out my Crafter's Companion folding board, another thing I barely touched since I got it.  The hero's totally awesome jeans pocket card reminded me that I had a Coluzzle template for a pocket card and I found a huge box of dollar store paper, with jeans paper....I was on a roll.......But....the dog needed walking......

Ozzy and I had a nice little walk, I cleared my head and came back and tackled some more.....  My first attempt at inking the inside of the cuttlebug folder was a disaster.  A smeared mess.  The second try was better, but it's still not perfect.  I'll try that again for sure.  I got bogged down at Kate's spinner card, I'm not sure what to use to cut the slot, but will be doing research (probably at work tomorrow....) and hope to continue on my merry way, hop, hop, hopping until I get all the way through...  Keep your fingers crossed for me!  --Nancy F.


  1. holy smokes I don't even know where to begin!! I can't believe you got those all done yesterday .. wait a minute.. yes I can....
    but still.... great job - love the herringbone vest ... love them all -- and I guess that means I better crack the whip and get going on some myself .... J

  2. Wow, you're an ambitious woman! And what a fantastic idea! I might have to give it a try, too.

    Also I think there is about to be a tutorial on Kate's spinner card on the OWH page on Tuesday... a little bird told me ;)

  3. All of your cards are darling. Isn't it fun trying new techniques:) Thanks for stopping by my blog and for leaving such a nice comment. Please stop by anytime OK.
