Easy Valentine’s Card With One Colored Pencil

Giving a handmade Valentine’s card for your loved ones will leave a special meaning. You can craft a Valentine’s card or draw your Valentine’s card. This time I’m going to share an idea of an Easy Valentine’s Card With One Colored Pencil. Yes, You will only need to use a pink colored pencil to draw your own Valentine’s card. It’s easy and quick to do, and of course it looks super sweet for Valentine’s Day. Let me show you how I draw my Valentine’s card step by step.

Things To Prepare

Super short list of supplies for this Valentine’s card, and your main tool is your hand. Let’s see what are the list supplies which were used to make this Easy Valentine’s Card With One Colored Pencil :

  • A drawing paper (I used B5 paper size)
  • Pink colored pencil
  • Black drawing pen

How To Make

To show how much I love my loved ones, I drew lots of hearts. It’s easy and will take less than an hour to draw even for those who doesn’t used to draw. Anyway, just follow these easy steps on how to draw an Easy Valentine’s Card With One Colored Pencil :

1 . Fold your drawing paper into two, neatly.

2. Now, draw a frame with one line by using pink colored pencil. It doesn’t have to be very straight lines, it can be a little bit shaky lines.

3. Next is to draw many hearts in a different sizes and orientation. Some are big, small, medium, or tiny. Some are facing left, some are to the right and some just straight. I was starting with drawing a big hearts first then follow by smaller and smaller hearts.

4. It’s time to color it. Start to color some hearts in darkest pink. Press your pink colored pencil while coloring to get a darker pink. Try to scatter the colored hearts.

5. Repeat it to some other hearts, but this time, loose your pressure to the colored pencil to have a lighter color than before.

6. Do it again with even lighter pink, so you will get 3 shades of pink; dark pink, medium pink and light pink.

7. Your hearts coloring is finished, so now take your black drawing pen and write “/lav/” which is how to pronounce “love”. And on the inside, write down “That’s how you say it”. Finished!

I think is super cute and you can make more of this Valentine’s card easily. You can change the pink color with other favorite color of your loved ones, like maybe red, purple or even blue. Well, but if you want to stick to the traditional Valentine’s color, then use a pink colored pencil.

Oriental Pink Orchid Artwork Paper

Oriental Pink Orchid Artwork Paper

Recently I have posted my Baking Artwork Paper This time my art work paper object is pink orchid. I love orchid, it’s the most beautiful exotic flower and the great thing is; it comes in many varieties and colors. If you googling you will find that “Orchids are actually native to tropic regions of Asia. The Chinese adopted the term “Butterfly orchid” to describe the aesthetics of this particular flower.” So, to me, orchid is one of the most elegant oriental flower.


I used sketch paper again for my artwork. I chose this paper because it is very thin but firm enough to be drawn and colored. I used watercolor pencils for the coloring media. I used more pastel colors to achieve the vintage look. I love vintage look, it feels like more stories coming out from the drawing. I used some pink shades, white, green and gold color.


This piece of orchid artwork paper I made can be useful for anything, maybe card, tag, little framed artwork or more. Well, let’s see what I’m going to use it for on my next post. I hope you enjoy my oriental pink orchid artwork paper and even get inspired by the beauty of orchid flower drawing.



I included my orchid artwork paper on challenges below:

  • Make My Monday – Oriental
  • Colour Crazy – Anything goes
  • Love To Craft – Anything goes
  • Craft Rocket – Anything goes
  • Crafting With An Attitude – Always anything goes
  • Crafting By Design – Anything goes

DIY Pink Dahlia Flower Pot Holder From Ice Cream Sticks

DIY Pink Dahlia Flower Pot Holder From Ice Cream Sticks

As I have promised on my previous post (DIY Painted Coaster From Ice Cream Sticks), I will show more how to make use of ice cream sticks with unusual way. I made those ice cream sticks into wooden plates. you don’t need to use heavy tool to cut wooden plank and make wooden decoration. It is convenient, practical, super easy and cheap. It only takes two delicate hands and glue to do it.

So, this time, another functional decorations to make, a flower-pot holder from ice cream sticks. to give more personal and summer touch, I will paint the flower-pot holder with a pink dahlia plus the wording “la fleur” (It’s a French, which in English means the flower).

What do you need to DIY pink dahlia flower-pot holder from ice cream sticks?

  • Ice cream sticks
  • Glue (for wood)
  • Spray paint – white color
  • Acrylic paint – red, white, green, black color
  • Paint brush
  • Scissors


How to make a pink dahlia flower-pot holder from ice cream sticks?

  1. Apply glue (for wood) evenly along the ice cream stick surface. Glue the ice cream sticks to each other one by one. Watch for the same length and width.
  2. Line them all up and make set of it. One is around 25 cm (or twice more the length of the ice cream stick), the second one is  square in dimension, and the third one is around a dozen of sticks.
  3. Let it sit for a while until the glue dry and become a firm wooden panel.
  4. Spray or apply paint to all the surfaces of the ice cream sticks panel with white color paint. Let it dry.
  5. Paint the longest panel on the top area with white acrylic paint. Paint the pink dahlia on the white-painted area and the word “la fleur”. Let it dry.
  6. Glue the three panels in a way like on the picture.
  7. Your diy pink dahlia wall flower-pot holder from ice cream sticks is ready.


You can be creative with the painting for the ice cream sticks flower-pot holder, the object, the colors or the wording. You can choose any theme according to your home color theme or simply your favorite color or favorite summer flower. I chose the soft pink dahlia which I love most for vintage shabby look, besides blue. And I painted the french word “la fleur” to add more vintage feeling. You can also mount it on the wall and become a wall holder, for that you might need an L shape steel on the bottom for strength .



I hope you can try my idea of making flower-pot holder from ice cream sticks with your own personal touch and find it easy, cheap, no heavy tools involved and fun. Well, have a good fun trying!
