Happy Valentine’s Day…You’re just my type!

Today is Valentine’s Day and I wish you love!  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a Valentine’s day Challenge.   I love the old fashion typewriter image in the Established Elegance set but I also love all the sentiments in the ‘You’re my Type’ set so I combined both.

I was going for a vintage feel and used Cherry Cobbler with Very Vanilla.  For a bit of sparkle I used the Dazzling Details in Cherry Cobbler on the embossed background.  I also punched the hearts from red glitter paper. The label framelits are fast becoming one of my favorites.  I love all the different sizes.  The paper in the typewriter looks like it’s coming up from the rollers because I cut a notch at the paper holder on the typewriter and put the paper behind it.

I hope you’re inspired to join us this week and spread the love by posting you’re Valentine project at HSS.

Simple Valentine Cards

I created these simple Valentine cards for a class.  These were very easy for my guests and they loved them.  These two-layer cards showcased the Big Shot for the embossed backgrounds.  I love the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and combines well with the Artistic Etchings stamp set.  I stamped the medallion in Riding Hood Red on Very Vanilla CS to make the background.  I then stamped the Eiffel Tower, glued the Red Glitter heart atop the tower and added a bit of Scallop Trim to the bottom and stamped ‘AMOUR’.  I also tore the edges of the Very Vanilla CS and sponged the edges in Riding Hood Red. For the finishing touch,  I adhered pearls and rhinestones to the corners.

For the “Just my Type” card   I used the Texture Plates Kit #4 which I had not used for awhile.  This set has a wonderful typed background which coordinates perfectly with the vintage typewriter image from Puns from the Past and the Newsprint DSP.  I punched the border of the Newsprint layer and sponged the edges in black.  I love the Tiny Tags stamp set and Medium Jewelry punch.  These little tags add so much to any card.  I adhered with the mini glue dots the tags underneath the knot of the ribbon.  I stamped the typewriter image on Very Vanilla CS then punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch.  I also punched another Decorative Label in black and framed the Typewriter image.  I added the Red glitter heart to the top of the typewriter image and the pearls to the corners.

One of my goals this year is to finish the inside of my cards as I did below.  It just looks so much neater and gives you another opportunity to use more images from a stamp set.
