I made a valentine card using an unexpected stamp set from Stampin’ Up! I bet you cannot guess which stamp set I got the sentiment from?
I used the happy heart embossing folder to emboss part of the card front as per the sketch below and then simply stamped the sentiment from the Build a Bouquet stamp set. I did double stamp the sentiment in Smoky Slate and then using the stamp-a-majig I stamped it again in black to create a shadow effect. I punched out some hearts using the confetti heart border punch and added some rhinestones.
Can you see my little mail box? I bought it from Target for $1 whilst I was in the States, how cute is that? I knew I would only use it once or twice but at $1 I could not resist.
I bought quite a lot of other stuff too! I even visited the Container store which is my idea of heaven but left there empty handed as there was just no more room in my case! This was the stuff from my case which was not clothes and toiletries……
Here is the sketch which inspired me –
