Stamps from your stash. Do they get used enough or forgotten in lieu of something new? I’ve been digging in the drawer this week to use some “not-so-new” stamps for Valentines Day card ideas. The products in the Occasions Catalog are fantastic and I have so many new ideas but can’t forget that the stamps in the drawer were new once upon a time 🙂 Let’s check out Time of Year Hostess stamp set as a Valentine’s Day card. I think this project would be great for any friend or family member, not just a spouse or significant other.
The card base is made from Soft Suede card stock, which is sturdy enough to hold the panels well. I layered a piece of Falling in Love DSP for the card front, with the beautiful depth of this image. I stamped with Sahara Sand, in keeping with the colors in the Designer Paper and used vanilla card stock to compliment the colors. The large heart die in Sweet & Sassy Framelits dies is just large enough to hold the large scripted words. And don’t they already look to be in the shape of a heart! I added Clear Wink of Stella highlights on the words and paper to give some sparkle.
Measurements for this project are:
vanilla card stock layer: 4″ x 5 1/4″
DSP layer: 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
sentiment: 1/2″ high vanilla, 3/4″ high sahara
card base is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
The bottom sentiment is made from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I think they have every single holiday covered in this one stamp set 🙂 It’s stamped on the same colors as carry the rest of the project and I made a small ribbon from Burlap Ribbon to add some texture. I colored the flowers as well with Wink of Stella to bring around the shine factor.
For a visual demonstration of this project, take a look at the video I made for this project.
