This month, my cards were created with Valentine’s Day in mind. I decided to use the Celebrate You stamp set and the Sweet Talk DSP, both are available in the Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalog.

Before creating my card, I wanted to make some colorful hearts. So, using Blending Brushes, I brushed the same colors of ink that are in the Sweet Talk DSP on a piece of Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used the smaller heart from the Heart Punch Pack to punch out the hearts. I love the soft colors (the Subtles color family is my favorite) and I have lots of extras to use on more cards or other projects.

My Basic White Cardbase is cut to 4-1/4″x11″. I cut a piece of Sweet Talk DSP at an angle to add the bottom of my card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Then added a few pieces of Tear & Tape along the edge of the DSP to add a piece of Real Red Faux Linen Ribbon. I wanted to be sure to leave some white space between the ribbon and DSP.

I used my Stamp-a-majig to add the sentiment along the edge of the ribbon. You could also use the Stamparatus to line up the sentiment before stamping.

I punched the scalloped hearts from the Heart Punch Pack to layer behind the hearts I created earlier. I added the hearts to my card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. As much as I LOVE to add bling to a card, I decided to add just a subtle touch with a Wink of Stella, I brushed it lightly on the tiny hearts on the DSP. I tired get a good picture of the shimmer but that was not to be. Anyway, I wanted the bling to be subtle so these could be given as masculine Valentine’s cards. However, you could dress them up with some Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Polished Dots or even the From My Heart Faceted Gems.
