Hello Life ~ Valentine

clean and simple valentine cardGosh, I can’t believe that it is February already! Time seems to fly by so quickly, doesn’t it? Of course, since it’s February, that means that Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.  Chocolates, flowers, and cards are just a few of the ways that we show that special someone how much they mean to us! So today, I have a great card design to share with all of you! A simple, yet elegant, card that you can make for your special someone!

To make this card, start with a piece of whisper white cardstock for the base of the card. Stamp your favorite “love” sentiment on the bottom of the card front. I used the beautiful “love” sentiment from the Hello Life photopolymer stamp set.

Note: if you turn your embossing folder to the side, you can slide in the front flap of the card and emboss it without embossing over the sentiment (see picture for embossing folder placement). Once you have embossed the card, simply add a few hearts using one of the punches in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. That’s it! Simple, hey? Enjoy!

Sheltering Tree Valentine

heart tree valentineNeed a few quick and simple Valentine’s Day card ideas? Well check out these fun little projects showcasing the new Sheltering Tree and Hello Life stamp sets. These cards are commonly referred to as CAS ~ Clean and Simple. CAS cards have very few if any layers and are quick to put together.  Let’s take a look and both of these projects…

The first card showcases both the Sheltering Tree and Hello Life stamp sets. There are absolutely no layers to this card, you simply stamp the images on a whisper white piece of cardstock (which is the base of you card). Start with the sheltering tree stamp set. Stamp the tree image on the left hand side of the card using using black ink. Grab a light pink (Pink pirouette works perfect) and stamp the shadow under the tree and the shadowy leaf images on the top of the tree. For the finishing touches, use the Hello Life stamp set. Randomly stamp the little hearts in the tree using real red ink and stamp the love sentiment across the bottom.  That’s it! Clean and simple, right?

The second project also showcases these 2 stamp sets. For this project, I left out the pink background colors and stamped just using real red and black. Stamp the tree image and hearts in the middle of the card (the same process we used above). Punch out a little heart shape using a scrap piece of real red cardstock and adhere it to the middle of the tree with a dimensional. Stamp the love sentiment on the bottom and you are done! This particular card is a more masculine type of design simply because I left out the pink color. 🙂 Enjoy!
