Sweetheart Valentine

I have been a bad little blogger. Construction was completed on my new stamp studio last weekend (whoo hoo!) so I’ve had the arduous task of moving into the new space. I must tell you it’s always eye opening to see what you really have when you have top pick up each and every item and move it down 2 flights of stairs. While I’m still not fully settled I have the majority of the stamp items settled so I knew it was time to “break in” the studio, boy did I have a lot of fun. One of the projects was for this weeks Stamping 411 challenge. With Valentine’s Day only a week away it’s only fitting that this weeks card takes advantage of our “sweet” holiday.

I started with a card base of Regal Rose and added a piece of whisper white cardstock that I had run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder. Then I added a piece of Real Red 1/8” taffeta ribbon and bow. The greeting is from A Perfect Heart stamp set and is stamped with Real Red Ink on Regal Rose cardstock before being punched out with the Modern Label Punch. The main image uses the Sweetheart stamp set and used Real Red to ink the heart and Garden Green for the flower leaves. To really add some bling I used the large Heart Punch to punch a heart out of the Red Glimmer Paper for the center. This is matted on a piece of Real Red Cardstock.

That’s about it, now check out the sketch we were provided. Pretty perfect and certain to brighten up anyone’s day.

Stay tuned for more valentine’s projects, sure to please!

Happy stamping,

Pin It!
