When I saw this month’s theme was all about Valentine’s projects, I got super excited, mainly because I really enjoy making Valentine’s cards. And this year, Stampin’ Up! released an over-the-moon cute suite called “From my Heart”. So if you like pinks and reds and hearts, then you will love playing with this suite.
Anyway, I have been seeing lots and lots of samples for Valentine’s cards using the “From my Heart” suite, and I fell in love when I saw some samples mixing this suite with the Bonanza Buddies bundle. I definitely wanted to give it a try and make my own Valentine’s card mixing these products.
And since I was going bananas with Valentine’s hearts, I decided I wanted to used the “Stitched be mine” dies to complement all the hearts I had in mind for the Valentine’s card I wanted to make.
The cutest Valentine’s card using two of my favorite both suites
See how cute this valentine’s card turned out!!! the designer series paper, a.k.a. DSP or patterned paper, I used was the “From my Heart” DSP, which is actually a specialty one as it has red and pink foil elements on the sheets! You cannot really see it in the picture, but if you watch the video-tutorial at the end of this post, you can appreciate it better.
As usual I followed the color combo from the patterned paper, so in this case it is Real Red, Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White! They really go well together.
For the little Koala I used the Smoky Slate ink for its body and Memento ink for its face. I also added a little heart epoxy droplet that I colored with Cherry Cobbler Dark stampin’ blend a.k.a. alcohol marker, this added a really nice touch on the Koala!!
Finally, I wanted lots of hearts for the background, so I die cut several heart shapes from the “Stitched Be Mine” dies in Real red and Whisper White. I also punched one heart from the DSP using one of the heart punches.
👉 As a tip for you, I usually lay all the hearts out on the card to see how I want them to line up! Once I like how the card looks, I glue the hearts down.
