CTMH Valentines Day

February 09, 2015

Welcome

I apologise for being a little late this week but it has been a very busy week.  I am aware that I have not done a tutorial on making the box envelope and I will do that as soon as I can.

This week I have a couple of cards using the lovely Amour stamp set and Heartstrings papers that is only available until 31 March through the Seasonal Expressions catalogue.  These go so well together and would be suitable for both a Valentines Day card and also a wedding card.

For this card I have cut a piece of cardstock at 4″ x 8″ to create a 4″ x 4″ card for something completely different.  I stamped the background script stamp with Bamboo ink on Colonial White cardstock and then stamped the Eiffel Tower and Armour stamps in Slate ink over the top.  The lovely silhouette stamp was stamped with Black ink.  I love how the inks do not smudge and I can used the stamped cardstock straight away.  The stamped card has been matted with the red paper from the Heartstrings paper pack and then matted again with Black cardstock.

DSCF2278For this card I have made the card look like a postcard as the stamps fit that so well.  As before I have used the script stamp to create the background in Bamboo ink on Colonial White cardstock.  I have used a mix of different stamp to create the postcard and this time they have all been stamped with Slate ink.  The background is made from the red Heartstrings paper and Hollyhock cardstock embossed with the Damask embossing folder.  I have added a trim of Black cardstock.  The sentiment is stamped in Black ink on Colonial White cardstock and then matted on a mix of Hollyhock and Black cardstock.  The hearts are from the January SOTM This Moment stamp set and I have stamped them in Hollyhock ink on Colonial White cardstock and then fussy cut them out and placed them on the card.

The Heartstrings paper packet and Armour stamp set are only available until the end of March when the Seasonal Expression catalogue is retired.  All these products (except for the This Moment stamp set) are available from my website here.

Materials used:

Cardstock – Colonial White, Black, Hollyhock

Paper – Heartstrings

Stamps – Armour, This Moment (NLA)

Inks – Bamboo, Black, Hollyhock, Slate

Embossing folder – Damask

Have a good week and Happy Crafting
