"Will You Be My Valentine?" Card and Design Team Member Introduction

"Will You Be My Valentine?" Card and Design Team Member Introduction


 Hi Friends,

I am delighted to introduce our fourth team member from Germany! I saw her super creative projects on Instagram and saw her enthusiasm for crafting there. She did some very interactive cards and often even had a little video showing how it moves. I was impressed by that very much. I think you will enjoy her fun cards as you see what she creates from week to week. Her fun personality also comes through on her cute and fun cards, too.

Be sure to follow her on Instagram  @some_bits_and_pieces and see all her fun creations there.

Hello crafty peeps!

My name is Jeanin,  I am 27 years old and live in Germany. I work at the university as a researcher where I mostly work at the computer. Therefore, I love to be able to actually create something with my hands in my leisure time. 
I've always loved arts and crafts since I was a little girl but after finishing school I somehow lost my creative mojo. I started sewing in early 2012 after seeing the great creations of some friends of mine. Later I also got into baking and crocheting. In October 2014 I slowly found my way into crafting and card making after buying my cutting machine, the Brother Scan'N'Cut. I first heard about it (or cutting machines in general) in a Facebook sewing group and was a fool to believe at first that I would never need it. Thanks to YouTube I quickly realized that I had to get one and found tons of card making tutorials. 
Now I craft almost every day. Sometimes I enjoy listening to music, on other days I watch an episode of one of my many TV series I enjoy, sometimes I call my family or friends. I love that I can combine crafting with so many other activities. As I said earlier, I am in love with my cutting machine. The second greatest thing, at least for me, is heat embossing. I can actually recall the first time I saw heat embossing in a crafting tutorial and I was absolutely amazed by it. 
I hope you'll get some great inspiration out of all the cards and projects the DeNami Design Team will show. Happy crafting!

Hello DeNami Friends!
Today I am showing you this fun and interactive Valentines card. I used the sentiment "Will you be my valentine?" that I printed on vellum and wanted the question to be answered right away. Therefore I came up with the idea to include the answer in the card. The recipient of the card is able to pull on the golden flap on the right side of the card and the "lonely" coffee cup will change into the picture of it and a donut. I think the little heart above the two images let them seem to be in love. I really liked that.
To create this card I used this heart background that I actually found in a magazine. It has foiled hearts in it and I thought it would be just perfect! I cut out a circle from the paper that was big enough for the second image of the coffee cup and the donut.

I stamped the little coffee cup and the cup and donut on white cardstock and spaced them accordingly. I also stamped the a little donut individually because I thought it would be fun to adhere him near the sentiment as if he is asking the question. I colored the images with alcohol markers.

I adhered the patterned paper to a card base making sure not to apply the adhesive where I want the flap to be. At first I wanted the word "yes" to appear on the white flap but I didn't like that and covered it with golden washi tape later.

To finish of my card I adhered the vellum and the little donut to the patterned paper.
