A Valentine...

Hi!  I'm sharing a card that I made yesterday.  This is a Valentine card for my husband.  I know. Some of these colors aren't exactly masculine.  But, at least I kept this card clean & simple.  No lace or buttons!

I'm playing along in 2 challenges.

My take on the challenges:

The *new* is this stamp set from Papertrey Ink.
I masked off all but a narrow strip across my card, then stamped in a variety of valentine images (all from the same stamp set).  I used 4 different colors.  Then after removing the masks, I drew a border at the top and bottom with a Stardust clear glitter pen.  After stamping the Love you sentiment on the heart die cut, I outlined (actually inside lined) the word Love.  I popped this up on another heart die cut, then adhered it to the card base with dimensional adhesive.
Thanks so much for stopping to take a look!

Card stock: white (PTI), raspberry ripple (SU)
Ink: primrose petals, raspberry ripple, soft suede, crumb cake (SU)
Stamps: with all my heart (PTI)
Other: limitless layers heart dies (PTI), stardust clear glitter pen (Sakura), foam tape (3M)


  1. I completely forgot about Stardust clear glitter pens - you've used it so well here I'll have to dig mine out and see if it works! lol! I love the idea of stamping all the different sentiments in different colours - at first glance I thought it was dp! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week, Susie!

  2. Wow! I would have sworn that was pretty patterned paper and not some clever and colorful stamping! And I love how you added the big heart as a focal point! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  3. Susie, I swore that was patterned paper until I read how you did it...amazing! I love my Stardust glitter really showcase what it can do here! I'm sure your DH will love his card...a perfect Valentine! Thanks for joining in the fun at CASology this week!

  4. Your multi stamped panel is genius, and with such a wonderful colour palette too!

  5. I, too, would have thought that was patterned paper. Your collage of stamps on that panel is fantastic! Glad you joined us this week at FMS!

  6. Wow! I thought that was patterned paper too! You did an amazing job with that. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
