As I type this post, I realize that Valentine’s Day is only 2 days away and I haven’t shared any of my Valentine cards or my treat holder with you. The cards were created over a month ago and put in the mail way in advance of the holiday, but I am very much overdue in posting about them. I was busy this week in that I substitute taught one and a half days and I cleaned out two closets this week. (I do feel I accomplished a lot.)
Anyway, here is the first card I made using the Bloomin’ Love stamp set, Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit Die, Sweetheart punch, and Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper. When I cut out the heart with the thinlit, one heart was enough to make two cards since I only needed a small piece to peek through the punched out heart image.
I made the second card with the Sky is the Limit stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalog and the Happy Heart Embossing Folder. Just a reminder that it will no longer be available beginning Monday, as new Sale-a-bration items will be replacing it. If you aren’t familiar with Sale-a-bration, it is Stampin’ Up!’s biggest sale event of the year. When you spend $50.00 on any Stampin’ Up! product you qualify for one free item. This set is one of the free items until midnight on Feb. 14th.
I love this set because you could say it is quite masculine, and I thought this made a good card for my son.
Finally, my last Valentine card happened quite by accident. Someone once told me there were never any mistakes is stamping, just happy accidents. So, this accident was a happy one. I had cut out a vellum heart using the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit intending to use it for a totally different purpose on a card, and this is what I ended up with. 🙂
I hope you like the cards.
For the tutorial I promised, I have a cute little Valentine treat holder that takes only minutes to make. I call it a Sweetheart Candy Slider Sleeve. Isn’t it adorable?
