This year I decided to bring my card making and stamping to a new level. So, I signed up for the Stamp Club at Colorful Creations, a local scrapbooking store in Hyannis, that meets once a month. I think it’s worth it as it will help push my creativity to a new level. It’s also fun to meet new people who share your love of stamping, get inspired and see what other people come up with interpreting the swaps and challenges. Doing the monthly card swaps will help me try new things and push me to do things I might not. This month was the first meeting where we did a Valentine’s Day card swap. Here’s the card I did.
I used a pink card base and layered brown Bazzil cardstock and Memorybox SC-Coolbeans stripped paper as the base.
I also used the Memorybox Branch Heart rubber stamp, that I fell in love with. I stamped it in the Memento Rich Cocoa because I thought I might color it with my Copics, but didn’t. Instead I used my Quickie glue pen on parts of the heart and then added Hot Pink Sparkly Fluff that I discovered when Tim Holtz used them on his 12 Tags of Christmas. I love this stuff. It’s fluff with a sparkle and it’s very easy to use, a tad messy, but worth it.
To finish the card, I hole punched two holes at the center of the heart on the top and put through some hot pink May Arts pink silky ribbon and tied a bow with tails. I thought it needed something else, so added three brown glittery pearls in the lower right hand corner. Inside I just stamped Happy Valentine’s Day.
Are you doing Valentine’s Day cards? I’ll post more Valentine Day projects that I’m working on in the next couple of weeks, so I hope that you check back again. Thanks for visiting and remember, do something creative today.
