Postage Stamp Cards

Today, I have two cards to share using the Tim Holtz postage stamp die.  I love this die!  These cards can really be for Valentines's Day or an anniversary.  My first card features Graphic 45's Sweet Sentiments collection.

I did a lot of fussy cutting with these papers.  Don't you just love the sweet vintage look?  I simply added some Stickles and the ribbon and heart button to highlight the pretty papers and chipboard.


The little cherub pulling the cart as well as the love chipboard tag were given some dimension with foam dots.

Next up is a card I made using Recollections Valentine collection.  The large flower was made with another Tim Holtz die where the edges were inked with tea dye Distress Ink and given some slight sparkle with Stickles.


I took a red Recollections doily and wrapped it into a cone shape and then added some various flowers and a Recollections charm to create a bouquet.  I saw that idea on the Graphic 45 blog.  A touch of Stickles was also added to the flowers.


Well, that's it for me today.  Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day coming up this week!  Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Never would have thought to use the TH postage die as a card base, but it makes such a pretty edge. Also I really like the doily cone filled with flowers and the heart. Both are lovely vintage type cards!

  2. Gorgeous cards, love the fussy cutting on the first one and love the red on the second!

  3. Oh, these are SO beautiful, Patty! I cannot believe I don't have that postage stamp die yet. Totally putting it on my wish list after seeing your gorgeous cards! LOVE the vintage look to these and LOVE all the amazing detail. The doily posy you made is absolutely fabulous!

  4. Wow! Such layered goodness on both cards, Patty! Lots of wonderful vintage detail, so pretty!

  5. Happy Valentine's Day, my friend! So happy to report that we still have power! Extra special treat for this special day. I hope you have a fabulous day surrounded by those you love most!

  6. Oh my, both Valentine's Day cards are absolutely gorgeous! I simply love the softness of the first one and the cute bow that you used on it and the flower on the second is gorgeous too.
    Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog too! I made the edges of my papers with a border punch ;)
