Kraft-y Hearts Blog Share Day 3: Not Just for Valentine's Day

Celebrating Close To My Heart's January Stamp Of The Month: Happy Valentine's Day

Hi All! Welcome to Day 3 of the Kraft-y Hearts Blog Share for the January SOTM: Happy Valentine's Day. I hope you've been inspired over the last few days!

So today, I wanted to show how versatile this stamp can be, so I used it in conjunction with the Avonlea Card Workshop On The Go stamp set. (That set will also retire at the end of the month, so you want to act quickly to get it!)

This A2 card was made with Whisper cardstock and stamped in Whisper Exclusive Ink using the small rose image. I cut a piece of Lagoon cardstock 1-inch smaller than the base (which makes it 4 1/2 x 3 1/4 inches) and again used the tone-on-tone stamping technique with Lagoon Exclusive Ink. The White Daisy cardstock layer is cut at 3 inches square. The sentiment and edge stamps are from the Avonlea Card Workshop On The Go, and are stamped in Ruby Exclusive Ink. It seemed a little bare, so I added a rose in the corner in Whisper Exclusive Ink. Finally, I used small and medium Opaque Pearl Gems to add a little elegance and Color-Ready Seam Binding for texture.

Here are a couple of close-ups:

I hope you have enjoyed our Kraft-y Heart Blog Share and are inspired to go out and create something beautiful today. Remember, the Happy Valentine's Day stamp set and the Avonlea Card Workshop On The Go are only available through 31 January. If you are interested in purchasing either or both, visit me here.

Now hop on over to From My Bungalow to be inspired by the über-talented Kraft-y girl, Lynn Darda!
