Valentine Train Block Card!

When I first saw the design for Block cards- I thought they looked like a train or maybe stairs.  I had to try to see if I could make a train come to life.   I made two!  This one is a more straight forward train.  I used SU's oval punch to make the roof of the train.  The wheels are Spellbinder's circle dies with the center a Spellbinder's flower die.  Here is a picture of the back-

My husband did not like my first attempt at turning the Block card into a train- see below.  I was going for Whimsical- He is more of a realist!  

I added a picture of our Grandson as the conductor.  The roof is from a SU punch- the name escapes me.  These block cards are fun to make!  You can check out my previous posts to find the link to the instructions from PaperCrafter 45!


  1. Chris, you just made me get out of my desk chair and start cutting and stamping! This train and all your block cards are amazing. Thanks for sharing the link earlier and your amazing art.

  2. Wow. The black and red train is just right. I think the wheels are perfect, too. Great work.

  3. I love the wheels too! Love, love love your train! You definitely have an eye for the punch art!!!

  4. I love both of these. They are fabulous! You always do such amazing things and you inspire me. Thanks for sharing!

  6. This is fabulous and I have a 3-1/2 year old great nephew who loves trains...may have to try your idea! THANK YOU!

  7. If your man is pushing you away and acting distant

    Or if the guy you’re after isn’t giving you the time of day...

    Then it’s time to pull out all the stops.

    Because 99% of the time, there is only 1 thing you can say to a standoffish guy that will grab him by the heartstrings-

    And get his blood pumping at just the thought of you.

    Insert subject line here and link it to: <=========> Your ex won’t be able to resist?

    Once you say this to him, or even send this simple phrase in a text message...

    It will flip his world upside down and you will suddenly find him chasing you-

    And even begging to be with you.

    Here’s what I’m talking about: <=========> Is your man hiding something? He may need your help?

    Thanks again.
