Alternative Valentine using the Heart Happiness stamp set

I hold a Card & A Cuppa event twice a month at a cafe in the local craft village (1st and 3rd Wednesday's of the month) and this month I wanted to come up with something a little different for Valentines day.

I'm a bit of a non-traditional girl when it comes to Valentine cards and I knew that the people who attend the Card & A Cuppa events like to do something a little different on occasions.

The Heart Happiness stamp set is a great set to use for valentines, anniversaries, weddings etc. There are your more traditional hearts, flowery hearts and one that is slightly different because it has stripes.

This is what I designed using the striped heart.

Valentines, Sale-A-Bration, Oakfield Crafts, Stampin' Up!,

I stamped the heart twice in Early Espresso onto some paper from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack and then a third heart in the same colour onto some Crumb Cake cardstock. All three hearts were then cut out using the die from the co-ordinating Lots to Love Box Framelits.

The heart embellishment comes from the Hearts & Stars Elements and I simply coloured it by pressing it into an Early Espresso ink pad.

I used a sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set. You have to love this set because it's a great all round one for sentiments (there are 24 of them) and most of the them will fit into the Classic Label Punch. 

I purposely took the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set with me because I knew that there would be people not wanting a valentines card.

Here's another card that I took to show.

Anniversary, valentines, hearts, oakfield crafts, Stampin' Up!

The hearts are the same as those in the first card. The differences being -
  • The card is landscape instead of portrait.
  • There is an added Very Vanilla layer under the Crumb Cake layer.
  • The heart embellishment is the interior element from the heart in the first picture.
  • The sentiment has a piece of Early Espresso punched out, cut in half and glued underneath the crumb cake.
  • I used a different sentiment from the same Teeny Tiny Sentiment stamp set.
Fancy coming along to the next one? I'll be at the Grange Chocolate Cafe (RG40 3AW) on Wednesday 21 February from 10.00 am to 11.45 am. It's a very friendly group, but if you fancy bringing a friend with you that's great. The cost is £5.00 per person and for that you receive all your supplies to make a card and also a hot drink of your choice.

Happy Stamping.
