Valentine Card using Heartfelt Stamp Set

Just three weeks until Valentine's Day, and crafters are busy creating handmade cards.  If you're looking for ideas, here's a card using the Stampin' Up! Heartfelt Stamp Set form the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog that I found on Anne Marie Hile's blog.  It uses the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper--papers with a glimmer on prints on one side of this paper set.  I used this cute Real Red, Flirty Flamingo and a Whisper White polka dot print on a shiny Real Red background.        

The basecard for today's card is Real Red Cardstock.  Then a layer of Whisper White.  Then a layer of the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper.  

Then I used the Detailed Hearts Die to die cut the hearts overlay out of Flirty Flamingo.  I had used this die on other cards and so I had a collection of left-over Whisper White hearts from an earlier card I had made out of Whisper White and the Detailed Hearts Die.  I chose three of the Whisper White hearts and added them to the hearts on the front on the card.                   

I then used the Heartfelt Stamp Set and stamped the sentiment in Real Red.  This is a reverse sentiment stamp, so stamping on Whisper White created a heart with a white sentiment.  I used the Heart Punch Pack from the Heartfelt Bundle to punch out the sentiment.  Then I punched a scalloped heart using the other punch in the Heart Punch Pack.  I layer them together and mounted the all on a Flirty Flamingo Heart Doilies.  This pack of Doilies includes both Real Red and Flirty Flaming Hearts and when you turn them over, they can be used as White Hearts.  You can also turn them into Silver or Gold Doily Hearts by apply Versamark over the surface, cover with embossing powder and then heat set the embossing powder.   

I tied a bow out of the Real Red 3/8" Double Stitched Satin Ribbon and added it under the sentiment heart.  


Stmapin' Up! gave us so many Valentine elements to work with in the January-June 2020 Mini catalog.  You'll love playing with the different looks you can get using the From My Heart Suite.  You'll love everything you make with this suite.
