Poppy Parade Take It To Heart Valentine

Take it to Heart is a delightful stamp set that can be found in the new Occasions Mini Catalog.  A year-round stamp set, the heart shaped images are suitable for all occasions, not just Valentines Day.

In this week’s club meeting, we stamped our card stock using the Take it to Heart stamp set, and then die cut the stamped images using sizzix heart framelits die (also an Occasions Mini Catalog exclusive item.)  The nesting hearts perfectly framed the heart and children image to cut a perfect allowance around the entire stamped image.Valentine_Club_SharonField

Isn’t this cute?  The background designer series paper (DSP) is actually one of the free selections available on January 24th in the new Sale-a-Bration catalog.  The DSP was embossed using the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Sizzix Big Shot Machine.  After embossing, the raised surface were distressed using a sanding block.candy conversations, inside of card

The inside of the card was made a bit more ‘special’ by stamping the $8.95 “Candy Conversations” stamp set which may be found just inside the back cover of the Occasions Mini Catalog…

I can envision these hearts stamped in multiple candy colors, and punched using the compatible small heart punch for a cute pastel or colorful kids’ Valentine too, can’t you?

Short and sweet today.. spent the afternoon with a friend at the hospital… I got to leave and come home, but she’s got a room for the rest of the week. 

See you tomorrow with a new hand stamped project!



Pin It!
