I hope everyone had a nice Valentine’s Day and that you could spend time with someone or something you love. Rob and I are enjoying our time in Florida. There is nothing like a little sunshine, sand and water to soothe your soul and relax you.
Here is another Valentine I made this year using the Lots Of Heart stamp set and the coordinating dies called Many Hearts. This bundle is in the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog and you can save 10% by purchasing them together. You know, you can always use hearts year round and not just for Valentine’s Day. Hearts are great for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays or any other time you want to show someone you care.
When I designed this card, I found a piece of Well Suited Designer Series Paper that I had cut a piece out of. I decided to cut off that section and was left with a odd shaped piece so I ended using the corner of it. I adhered it to a piece of Basic Gray cardstock that was also a leftover and fit perfectly.
After that I stamped the heart in Cherry Cobbler ink using the plaid heart in the Lots Of Heart stamp set. The best way to ink up and stamp this heart is to use your Stamparatus. That way if the solid area does not come out totally covered in ink you can ink it up again and re-stamp it in the exact same place. Then I cut it out using the coordinating heart die. The Many Heart Dies include a die that cuts out the outline as well as the inside heart so I used that die three times. I cut the plaid heart out and then two more out of Basic Gray cardstock. I layered the outline of one around the plaid heart and the other to use by itself.
The sentiment if from the stamp set called Meant To Be which is in the 2020/2021 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog.
Susan, you are rocking this lovely set. I love that angled paper, and you’ve executed it really well. I love the subtle elements with that strong heart
Beautiful card, Susan! Love the plaid heart. Enjoy the sun and sand and salt air!
