I had so much fun making Valentines yesterday! Naturally, it was a race against the clock to try to get them out to the mailbox before the mailman came. I wanted to make some valentines for my eight nieces and nephews. Normally I would spend at least half a day searching for all possible designs that I liked online before I would find something to copy….but I’m finding that if I just sit down and play around with my stamps and ink I can actually come up with things myself! For these valentines I wanted just kind of the little "kid size" cards. I got into my stash of retired items and found these Pretty in Pink Pocket Note Cards. You can still buy an assortment of Pocket Notes in the catalog, just different colors. They’re very cute and really suited my purpose. On the one heart you can see some retired colors of beads, which I attached with the new Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive. I used the Happy Heart Day stamp set, Simply Said, Tagger’s Dozen, and Holidays and Wishes to make the cards. You’ll also notice some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on a couple of the cards. What’s a day of stamping without some glitter?!
