Last Minute Valentine Art

Last Minute Valentine

 I am pretty sure that every single year I end up needing a last minute Valentine gift and this year is no exception. My sweet princess needs a valentine to display on her school desk so I pulled out some supplies from my studio and went to work. Once I had my cut file created the rest of the project was pretty quick. Other than watching paint dry of course! 


Valentine Crafts
I am so happy to be joining in the fun with the amazing ladies at Creative Crafts for a Last Minute Valentine collaboration. There is also an amazing give away so be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of the post and check that out. 

Craft Supplies

I used a piece of chipboard I bought at a scrapbook show years ago - I had a few left over from my project. I applied three coats of Wicker White Paint, drying between each coat, then sanded the edges for a rustic look. 

Samantha Font

After all the paint was dry I gave the base a couple of spritzes of mica ink in pink, because you can never have too much sparkle! I - LOVE- the Samantha font! It is one of my all time favorites and I had to use it for this too. My sweet princess is learning to read/write cursive so she will be able to read it! I used StyleTech Craft™ Craft Vinyl in Glossy Black for the sentiment. 

Glitter Hearts

To make my cut file I use a butterfly outline and filled it with hearts of varying sizes, then removed the outline. I used StyleTech Craft™ Ultra Metallic in Dark Red to cut the design, then used the end of a paint brush dipped in Licorice to create the body and antenna. Easy peasy!
