Here is my first Valentine’s Day card of 2019. I used Concord and 9th‘s Little Love Tags BUNDLE. It is primarily a tag set but you can definitely use it to make cards. I used the XO heart stamp to create a circle, alternating ink colors for interest. I stamped the lines stamp twice using my Mini MISTI onto vellum using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I used the same ink to stamp the sentiment, which I trimmed with my paper trimmer, and the heart with lines through it, which I colored with three Copic markers to create an ombre effect. I die cut the heart using the dies from the bundle.
In my previous post I used this same Ruffled Flowers Stamp & Die Bundle from Altenew without the dies. For today’s card, I used the dies for the flower clusters on the front of the card and to create a pop-up on the inside of the card.
Even though we had fairly cold and rainy weather in Atlanta for a while, after New Year’s I was thinking of spring. I guess it does rain a lot in Spring. As soon as I saw the Ruffled Flowers Stamp & Die Bundle from Altenew, I knew I had to have it. I love these little flowers. The set has two flower clusters with outline stamps and two color layers for the flowers and two for the leaves. You can use the color layers or use your favorite coloring medium.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a nice New Year’s eve and that you are looking forward to a wonderful 2019. I have not made new year’s resolutions in a while but I have a few this year. I am currently seeking a “resolution buddy” to make sure I stay on track :). Have you made any new year’s resolutions?
