For the last day of the reveals, the design team is showcasing two mini stamp sets with its coordinating dies.  They are My Type and Candy Heart.  Here’s what they look like:



For my first card, I stamped my images with memento ink and colored the images in with Copic markers.  I die-cut the images with its coordinating die.  I used my handmade circle stencil and inked up a piece of some Bristol smooth white card stock using different pastel color inks.


I stamped the sentiments using the Candy Heart stamp set and adhered the pieces onto my card with some foam adhesive.


I adore this mini stamp set.  You can use this stamp set not jsut for Valentine’s Day but for any occasion as well.  Here’s a closer look:


For Christmas this year, my daughter gave me a mint-green typewriter!  I was bawling when I received it!  I’ve always wanted one and every time my daughter and I went to Michael’s I would stop by to admire the typewriter and say to her one of these days I’ll get one of these.  She bought it out of her teacher’s salary!  I was so touched by this and I was super emotional that day!  So coloring the typewriter with pastel colors reminded me of my very special gift from my loving daughter!


For my second project, I also used the cat images from the Newton’s Christmas Cuddles stamp set.  I wanted these kitties sitting on a pyramid of candy hearts.  I stamped he images with memento ink and colored them in with Copic markers.  I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.  Here’s my second card:


I used a Hearts embossing folder that I purchased from Hobby Lobby to add more details to the card.  To finish my design, I added the red heart from the Heart Sprinkles Embellishment from Kat Scrappiness.  Here’s a closer look:


Don’t you just love the kissing kitties?  Those Candy Hearts are adorable too!  The coordinating die really cuts out the hearts perfectly and is a must-have.  These mini sets are so inexpensive!

  7. These are two phenomenally fun cards!!! I don’t think I would’ve have ever thought to use the cute typewriters that way, but I love the colorful and unexpected way you have them delivering cute Valentine messages!! And then the other card has a ton of interest by using the embossing folder, the pyramid of hearts and the cuddling kitties!!
