Stamping 411 – Love Impressions

Are you ready?  Today's Stamping 411 sketch is VERY easy…and you know…those easy ones are always harder for me!  lol!  So grab your stamps and play along with us!




I did like how my card turned out…especially after I convinced myself that I didn't have to have the sentiment in the same place as shown on the sketch!  It's super simple…you could make LOTS of them for the Valentines on your list!



Once again I started with Pink Pirouette cardstock, ran the front thru the Big Shot with the Finial Press Impressions Folder.  I added a piece of Love Impressions Designer Paper, layered onto Basic Gray and then Real Red cardstock.  I wrapped the Real Red Taffeta Ribbon around and tied a knot. 


I punched the Full Heart punch from Red Glimmer Paper  and placed it on the front with some Stampin' Dimensionals.  Finally, I stamped Happy Valentine's Day from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Basic Black Classic Ink on Whisper White, then cut it to a banner shape.  I placed it on the Glimmer Heart with a Stampin' Dimensional.  The Designer Paper and the Red Glimmer Heart do all the work making it POP! 


Make sure to check out what the rest of the Operators did this week over on Stamping 411!  I'm sure they will have some FABULOUS designs!

Soft and beautiful, Connie — perfect for Valentine's Day. I don't always know how to use this DSP but you did a beautiful job! Blessings, Gretchen
