Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and kids are gearing up to hand out their sweet valentine cards. I always loved this when I was little. I think my favourite part was seeing what valentines card designs I would receive! If you are a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber and received January’s kit, you’ll know it was Valentine’s themed.
While the kit included all the supplies to create 24 treat boxes, I used the supplies to make some cards. The Adoring Arrows stamp set is so sweet and perfect for making some fun cards!
This first card focuses on repetition. I didn’t bother using any tools to align my hearts but rather eyeballed it. I stamped the little mini black hearts randomly inside the large ones as well. I added the new Sending Love Ribbon, tied around the card front only. Using one of the die cut hearts from the PP kit, I stamped my sentiment in Real Red ink and used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up on the card front.
I attached the front to a layer of black striped patterned paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Pack and attached to my thick Whisper White cardstock base.
The second card was created along the same lines in regards to repetition. I stamped the sentiment ‘ I adore you’ all over the card in Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo ink. I had a piece of the Lace Doilies left over from a previous card and not wanting to waste it, attached it to my card front, aligning the toothpick heart arrow along the edge. Again I used a die cut heart to stamp my heart outline and sentiment, using a glue dot to attach to the toothpick and a Stampin’ Dimensional to hold up the left side on my card front. The little bit of White ribbon from the Sending Love Combo pack completed the focal point of the card
It is layered on striped Flirty Flamingo patterned paper from the 2016-2018 In Colour Designer Series paper pack and attached to a thick Whisper White cardstock base.
Two quick and easy cards using many of the supplies from the Adoring Arrows Paper Pumpkin kit and supplementing with some additional products from my own stash!
When you receive your Paper Pumpkin kit, do you stick to the project instructions or do you like to make alternative projects as well?
