Well….I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth….I’m just a mom of two kiddos and I have to conquer much before I can play with my stamps and blogs! Needless to say, I have made plenty in the past several months…I just haven’t shared it with you. Not that you missed me!
Here are the two valentines I created for my hubs for Valentine’s Day.
For this first card I used the Groovy Kind of Love stamp set and the heart punch. Most of the placement was easy – just making the zebra striped heart have a 3-dimensional effect took 3 hearts – not two. You stamp each of the 3 hearts and punch them out, fold each in half down the center of the heart and glue half of the heart to the next heart. Once you have all 3 hearts glued together, then you can put it on the card.
Stamps: Groovy Kind of Love
Ink: Real Red, Memento Black
Paper: Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Stacked with Love DSP
Accessories: Heart Punch
And, of course, you always need a nice manly card for him! I wish they had made additional sentiments for this little stamp set – I think it is a great stamp set for male birthdays, etc.
This card is pretty straight forward. I did stamp the trees before embossing. I colored the rest of the image directly with my Stampin’ Write markers.
