When I saw this set for the first time I reconsidered buying it as we dont do much for valentines day here in this household so I wondered how much I’d use this set. Well needless to say I was wrong – just dont tell the kids!
Really we dont need it to be Valentine’s Day to tell those close to us that we love them so going on that theory this set could be used throughout the whole year and not just on February 14!
I dont think this set has been put away in the last week and I do hope you’ve enjoyed the cards I’ve made using it.
This flower stamp here reminds me of our dandelions (or lawn daisies as my sister calls them) after they’ve flowered and gone to seed.
When we were little we used to pick them and blow the rest of the seeds off and however many were left there was some significance but now it escapes me – I’m sure someone will remember and let me know. Now if you leave me a comment and it is the right answer I will send you a card just like this one – but without my Cherished Teddies (sorry).
I used my markers to just colour the flower & stem then stamped it onto whisper white cardstock. I did the same with the words. If you would like to see how to use your markers more or more effectively then drop me a line and we’ll book you in for a demonstration or technique class
With the flowing hearts I used just the flying hearts bit of the stamp and coloured it with my Rose Red Stampin Write Marker and started stamping from the top right corner of the Pretty in Pink Cardstock piece. I stamped those hearts three times to give the flying/floating look as if they had been blown off the flower.
I have just realised that this card uses just the one stamp from the A Happy Heart set which is in the Summer Mini Catalogue. I’ve just used each part of the stamp separately and spaced out the elements.
I had visioned this card in my mind before doing it and surprisingly it turned out just as I had imagined and much nicer than I expected and I hope you like it too.
