Here is my simple …yet … So Sweet Valentine.  I needed some inspiration, so I turned to the Occasions Catalog (page 9!).   I just LOVE the sentiments in the Hello Life stamp set … so sweet!!!!

This card is made with one of our Whisper White Note Cards.

I used the heart strip from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies for the heart cutouts on a 4 7/8″ x 3 3/8″ Whisper White layer.  (There are so many pieces to work with in that set of dies …. well worth the purchase!)  I just lined up the die and cut three times to get the 3 rows.  Then I stamped the sentiment in Strawberry Slush Classic Ink.  Tip:  Remember to use your Stampin’ Pierce Mat under your cardstock when stamping with the Photopolymer Stamps for a crisp and solid image.

The glimmer hearts were created by inserting small strips of Silver Glimmer paper that I dyed with Strawberry Slush re-inker and a sponge dauber.  (Your dauber will get glitter on it … DO NOT use your ink pad for this!!! … you don’t want a sparkle-y ink pad.)  AND take-it-from-me:  Allow the strips to dry well before assembling … Strawberry Slush finger prints somehow appeared on my first effort!

I adhered the assembled piece to the note  card base with Fast Fuse. (Love that stuff!)    2015 valhop inside

I always like to add something to the inside of my cards.  I cut some Strawberry Slush hearts with the die and glued them around the sentiment from Something to Say from the annual catalog.

I hope you enjoyed your time here ….

Thanks for stopping by … onto Mary Bush’s creation … which is going to be amazing!
