You will find the Heart Happiness Stamp Set in the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog, and what a fun stamp set to make a valentine or any occasion card like this Heart Happiness Thinking of You card!
At this time of year, with Valentine’s Day coming up soon, you might think this stamp set is great for Valentine’s Day……and it is! But as you can see, hearts are wonderful for lots of occasions so this stamp set can be used year-round! I could have chosen a birthday greeting or congratulations or other fun greetings to put on this card.
I use my Big Shot most days when I am stamping, but sometimes it feels good to “just stamp” on your card, like this one! Honestly I didn’t really know what I was going to make for this card, just got out the stamp set and started with this particular heart stamp. I thought I would make a line of these hearts across the middle of the card but this is what evolved!
And sometimes when you stamp, you just love the look of a particular stamp. That’s how I felt about this heart stamp when I used it. That IS the way it is supposed to stamp – not completely solid all the way across – it’s the trendy watercolor look. I really like it. And I really liked choosing several colors of ink pads from the Brights Family and rather randomly stamping on the Whisper White card layer. It seemed to maybe need a bit more, so I added the tiny hearts that are also in the stamp set to fill in the empty space. I looked for a greeting that was a decent size to stand out, and I found this one in the Window Shopping Stamp Set.
I think you could make your own beautiful designer paper pattern by stamping these large and small hearts on a larger piece of paper, even 12″ x 12″ of Whisper White and then cutting it down for cards or using for a scrapbook page or whatever project.
