Tuesday Ideas {Love Cards}

Hey there, everyone!  Welcome to my second post guest designing for Precious Remembrance Shop!  I have enjoyed using the new Thanks Stamp Set so far this month, and I am excited to share my creations with you!!  Valentine’s Day is this week, so it seemed fitting to create some cards with a little bit of love in mind.  Up first is a card using the sunshine sentiment for the stamp set!

Instructions:
1. Make A2 card from oatmeal cardstock.
2. Cut a strip of yellow polka dot paper, and adhere to the top.
3. Stamp the sunrays to the top left side of the dotted paper.
4. Stamp the sentiment below the dotted paper with right hand alignment.
5. Layer the chipboard sun below the sunrays, then accent the middle with a yellow jewel.
6. Diecut the clouds from oatmeal cardstock, then layer to the bottom of the chipboard sun.
7. Add the story diecut, then accent with sequins & pearls to finish.

This might be my favorite sentiment from the Thanks Stamp Set.  It makes me think of the amazing people I have in my life that truly make me smile, no matter the storms of life that might be passing through.

Because I am not available every single Tuesday this month to post, I am doubling up on the Tuesdays that I do have available….so I have another card to share with you!  This one is a little more traditional in terms of Valentine’s Day and celebrating love!  Check it out!

Instructions:
1. Make A2 card from oatmeal cardstock, then round the lower right corner.
2. Cut an XOXO border from kraft cardstock & red cardstock.
3. Adhere the kraft border to the bottom of the card.
4. Stamp the row of X’s directly below the border, then add the banner to the top of it.
5. Diecut a circle from oatmeal cardstock, then stamp the heart sentiment to it.
6. Trim the red XOXO border, layer to the stamped circle and adhere to the right side of the card.
7. Cover a chipboard heart in gold glitter, then layer to the right side of the circle accent with a red brad & clear jewel.
8. Add a jewel circle around the circle sentiment, trimming off the unnecessary section.
9. Embellish with gold star confetti & a clear jewel to finish.

What I love about this stamp set, is that while it is mainly a Thank You sentiment based set….I was able to create these two loved theme cards from it as well!  I love when a stamp set is versatile, and you can create multiple types of cards from it…it definitely gives you more value for your money! {And in this economy….who doesn’t need their dollar to go the extra mile?!}

I hope that you enjoyed my cards today, and I will be back in another two weeks to share a couple more with you!!
