Today I thought I would make a simple, easy to stamp valentine card using the Gold Vinyl Stickers! It’s time to start making some valentines as tomorrow is the first day of February! Making valentines is something that takes us back to our childhood – the decorated shoebox or lunch sack to put on our school desks, the handmade valentines with doilies and red construction paper, the bottle of white paste! Wow! Does that bring back memories??! Now we can be a little more sophisticated with our wonderful Stampin’ Up! cardstock, creative stamps, and beautiful embellishments!
This card starts with a base of Real Red Cardstock and a layer of Whisper White Cardstock stamped in Real Red Ink! Basic red and white for Valentine’s Day with a touch of gold! I stamped the various hearts from the Heart Happiness Photopolymer Stamp Set. Just choose whichever ones you want and stamp away!
To add a little bit of pizzazz to this valentine, I used some of the Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers. If you haven’t noticed these in the Occasions Catalog, it’s not your fault! They are barely noticeable on the page. But now that you know they are there, go look on page 19 on the left edge of the page in the fold! These are self-adhesive stickers in gold that coordinate with the stamp set Sure Do Love You. However, they coordinate with lots of stamp sets and designs, so you can use them even without this stamp set. The stickers are really good quality, not flimsy, and they DO stick….so make sure you know exactly where you want to put them because you aren’t likely to be able to move them once they stick on the paper! Don’t ask me how I know!
Since the stickers come on a clear sheet, you can hold the sheet over your project and see where you want to place a certain sticker and what it will look like.
Here are the Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers on page 19 of the Occasions Catalog. Be sure to check them out! They aren’t just for Valentine’s Day either! They will go with any pretty card or project! You get two sheets, so you might want to order an extra package or two to have on hand! You will want to use them!
