It’s February, and Valentine’s Day will be here in just 12 days so I thought it would be fun to showcase a few Valentine cards.

I made the clouds in the background with a plastic cloud template.  I held it down where I wanted it and tapped a sponge dauber on a blue ink pad and proceeded to tap the edge of the cloud template and the area above.  Then I moved the template a little lower on the card and repeated the process.  I made the grass with green paper and wavy-cut scissors and created the lawn-mower with silver, black, red paper and a silver marker.  I hoped to find a lawn-mower on a Cricut cartridge so it would look right, but I didn’t find one so I just winged it and made it myself.  Hopefully you can imagine that this is a lawn-mower. 🙂  I completed the card by writing with sparkly Copic Spica AtYou markers.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.

    • Oh, thank you! I just free-hand cut out some shapes when I made this card years ago, but if I were to make it again now, I’d probably search for an image I could cut with my Cricut Explore machine.

  1. Your free-hand mower is super cute! After doing a scour of my stash this week I came online to see what I could find and your card popped up. Adorable! 🙂
