Have you seen the set Beautiful Ride on pg 15 of the Occasions Catalog?  As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it simply for that VW Bug – just love that classic vintage car!

That plus my girls are forever yelling ‘slug bug’ whenever they see one when we are out and about!  Well it turns out that this set is super versatile – there are a bunch of sentiment stamps in there and combined with that car, it can be used for so many occasions…

Today I used it to create a two-color Valentine card and here it is…


I just love this color combo – it surprised me just how much!

The card colors…are Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler – just the two – with a splash of brown ink – love this look!

The car…I stamped that big beautiful car, stack of cases and ‘love’ on the door with Early Espresso ink – all these are in the set Beautiful Ride and being photopolymer stamps, this was quick & easy to do…

The large dotted heart…is a stamp from the set Groovy Love and I stamped it using Cherry Cobbler ink onto a scrap of Crumb Cake and used my Sweetheart Punch to punch it out.

The banner…is a scrap of cardstock that I shaped using a die from Banners Framelits – I added it to my base and then added the heart on to it using Dimensionals…


The sentiment…the ‘love you’ stamp is from the set Banner Banter and I punched it out using my 3/4″ Circle Punch and tucked it just under that heart

The small hearts…I used the small heart punch (which is the exact same shape as the Sweetheart Punch so it’s co-ordinates beautifully!) from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack to punch a red solid heart – and I stamped another large dotted heart and punched out a small heart from it – LOVE the look that gives!


The finishing touch…I added a small bow made of Linen Thread to my large heart just as a cute accent and LOVE how that one small thing added so much to my card

I am going to be using the stamps in Beautiful Ride all through the spring and summer – such a fun set to play with!
