Good morning, crafters! Design Team Member Cynthia here with you for a super-sweet Valentine’s Day card featuring the brand new KS Say It With Hearts stamp set. This stamp set is just the cutest thing ever, and with so many different sentiments to choose from, you can send any message you like! Let’s go ahead and start going through the steps you’ll need to follow to recreate this card for yourself.
My first step was to go ahead and cut the paper layers for my card. I used my favorite KS Stitched Scalloped Rectangle dies for the perfect touch. The pink-on-pink hearts patterned paper was cut using the largest rectangle die, which is just a tiny bit smaller than my A2 size card base. I added a diagonal black & white stripe paper next, trimmed to fit within the layers neatly. Then I used the next largest rectangle die to cut my white card stock piece, where I’ll be adding the stamping.
I selected four fun colors of ink from my ink pad stash, using dye inks so that they would dry immediately. Remember, when using pigment inks, you’ll have to allow time for them to dry completely. Using the solid heart stamp from the KS Say It With Hearts stamp set, I stamped a random pattern of hearts across my white rectangle (I used some washi tape strips to mask the scalloped edges.) I then stamped the heart outline stamp over the colored ones using some Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I was happily surprised at how easy it was to layer my hearts with these stamps! The final touch was to stamp my sentiments inside the hearts. There are so many to choose from that I was able to use a different one for each of my hearts with no repeats.
For my last step I decided to wrap some black & white baker’s twine around the center of my card and tie a little bow. I absolutely LOVE this twine, and it worked perfectly with my colors and design. This card turned out to be one of my favorites, and if you would like to recreate this for yourself, you can follow the links above and below to start shopping.
