Stamping 411 – Filled with Love

We have a fun, new sketch for you to try over on Stamping 411!  Mine is pretty simple, I think, but couldn't think of how to jazz it up any more without starting over!  I know I'll be smacking my head when I see all the lovely creations by the rest of the Design Operators!



And here is my card using Filled with Love Stamp Set:.  Last chance on the Filled with Love Promotion…it ends January 24th!



I started with a base of Real Red, then layered on the Love Impressions Designer Paper.  I stamped the word, LOVE from Filled with Love in Basic Gray on Whisper White, then layered it on Basic Gray cardstock.  I punched the Small Heart from Real Red Glimmer Paper and put it in the center of the O, popped up with a Stampin' Dimensional. 


I used the Pinking Hearts Border Punch on a strip of Red Glimmer Paper and put it under the focal point.  I laid down Sticky Strip in the background and added my ruffled ribbon over top of it and secured it in the back of the Designer Paper.  Finally, I added a Real Red large Button with a Pewter Glimmer Brad in the center for some extra sparkle! 


Pretty simple card and somehow masculine looking with all the streamlined edges.  I think I'll keep this one for my hubby for Valentine's Day!


Make sure to check out what the rest of the Design Operators did on Stamping 411!  Then make your card using the sketch and upload it over there!

Just love the masculine feel of this valentine.  I find it so hard not to go all frilly and feminine with valentine cards.  This one is fabulous!
