Greetings fellow card makers! I am not telling you anything new when I say Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so, I have a few projects that I will be posting for the next couple of days to help you with some last-minute card ideas.
Valentine Cards using Honey Bee Stamp Set Beautiful Life
Inside of Valentine Card
Honey Bee Stamps are so stinkin’ adorable and the set I used here is Beautiful Life. This card was inspired by a card that one of the DT member’s on Honey Bee Stamps Blog created. Beautiful Life stamp set has dozens of images, words and sayings and I found the cutest little checkmark in this set, although I did not use it on these cards, I will soon. 🙂
I started out by using a circle stencil and applying Tattered Rose Distress Ink, then I removed the stencil and lightly applied Tattered Rose Distress Ink again, this time over the entire panel. I actually made a large panel that I cut into three parts so I could make several cards at one time. I then used Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and stamped various hearts from the set inside some of the circles. I stamped some of them full strength and some of them I stamped off to give a variety of shades.
I die cut tags from some of the heart pattern paper as well as gold cardstock. I stamped LOVE from an old Stampendous stamp set onto the heart pattern tags and inked the edges of these tags.
I then cut strips of chevron black on black patterned paper from Close To My Heart and adhered both the heart panel and the chevron strip to a card base. I covered the seam with CTMH Gold Foil Tape.
Finally, I tied pink and white Doodlebug baker’s twine to the tags and added them to the front of the cards. I stamped the inside of each card with the You Are Loved sentiment from the Honey Bee set, stamped some hearts around the sentiment and called it done!
