With Valentine’s Day fast approaching I keep thinking of all sorts of things to make using hearts…

My card today includes Designer Series Papers from the Occasions Mini Catalog and a beautiful stamp from the set Bliss that you can get for FREE during Sale-a-bration…

And Sale-a-bration is ONLY 4 days away!  I am SO excited for this event and in the countdown to it will be featuring a new item each day to give you ideas on using those fab freebies on offer…

And because it’s Friday please read on for the winner of this week’s Tutorial Tuesday Blog Candy…

I used the colors Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Riding Hood Red for my card – I chose this red because I wanted to create a more elegant feel to my card and this red is more subdued than some…

I layered a piece of Black card stock onto my red base – see the texture on it?  I used my Big Shot and Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder to create this texture…I then added a piece of printed paper from Limited Edition DSP that you can find on pg 25 of the Occasions Mini – I love this pack of papers and it is fabulous value for money at just $11.95 for 24 sheets!

Like the little red envelope?  I die cut it out of Textured card stock using my Big Shot and Scallop Envelope Die… I added my sentiment using a stamp from the Sale-a-bration set Bliss and punched it out using my 2″ x 1 3/8″ Oval Punch, adding two little Pearls to each end.

My hearts?  Made using Designer Series Papers from Love Letter and my Full Heart and Heart to Heart Punches…for a finishing touch I added a piece of Black 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon and took a little piece of black and vanilla ribbons and tied a knot with both of them together…

I love how my card turned out…and I really love that Bliss stamp set…bet you cant wait to try it out for yourself!
