Valentine's Day Cards

Valentine's Day cards created for Scrapbook Nerd

Hi there!

It seems like i blinked and January just flew by... and now we are starting to get everything ready for Valentine's Day, so i thought i put to work my obsession with Concord & 9th stamps to create a set of cards using their December release.  So let's get started...

For the first card, i decided to use the Little Love Tags stamp set to create the heart background of the card using Red Brick Distress ink.   The same stamp was used to emboss a few hearts ( i used WOW gold powder and Lawn Fawn Rose Gold powder).

The hearts were cut using the die set, and then attached to the card using foam adhesive.  The sentiment was then added using black Archival Ink.

For the next card, i used the Hugs and Kissed Turnabout stamp set to create the heart panel using Distress Oxide inks in Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries.  I used the heart dies in the Little Love Tags to cut the center heart of this card.

I used some foam adhesive to attach the pannel to a piece of paper from the LA LA LOVE collection from Crate Paper, and added an embossed heart (created using the Little Love Tags stamp and die set) in the middle of the card.

For my last card, I chose to emboss the Just Love stamp image onto Vicki Boutin's Foundation paper.  I used my prima watercolor palettes to add the watercolor look to the card.

The gold watercolor comes from the Starry Nights watercolor palette form Gansai Tambi.  To shade the background, I used a combination of watercolor and hb pencil.

I framed the pannel, and then glued it to a made to size card.  Love how these card came together in a short amount of time (even with the detailed watercolor!)
