Valentine Cards | Simon Says Stamp

Hello my crafty friends and happy Monday. Today I’am back on my blog showing you this three valentine cards I made using this super cute Stamp Set from Simon Says Stamp. 

First of all I would like to let you know all the products I have used for this cards:

First I started by creating all the backgrounds. Therefor I did cut 3 panels of heavyweight cardstock down to 5 1/2 and 4 1/4. For the first background I used the color Poppy. I fixed the stencil just with some purple tape, that way the paper does not move. For my second card I used the color Oceanside and for the rainbow card Poppy / Marmalade / Buttercup / Clover and Oceanside. So the backgrounds were done very fast. 

Now it was time to stamp the cute dog and cat on a piece of white cardstock using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. To color all the images I used my Spectrum Noir Triblend Marker. For me they make it so easy to color out the images and blend the colors. 

After I had everything colored I used the coordinating dies to cut all the images out. I really love to use coordinating dies, that way you get a perfect cut. 

To create the frames for two of the cards I used two of the Stitched Rectangles Frames and fixed them also with a piece of purple tape and then run it through my die cut machine. I did this twice as I wanted to have to frames. On one of the cards I used foam tape to adhere the frame, that way I had some dimension. For the other frame I used Gina K liquide glue. 

For the rainbow card I used both of the inner parts from when I die cut the frames and glued them together. 

Now I did adhere all my images onto the cards. For the two floating cards I used foam tape and for the couple (cat and dog) I used liquide glue as I already had dimension on the frame. 

Last but not least I did stamp the sentiments with black ink on white paper (at least two of them) and used the coordinating dies to cut them. On the rainbow one I did just stamp it directly on the panel. 

And that’s it my crafty friends, three very simple and cute cards for your valentine love.

I hope you like them and I would love if you leave me a comment in the section below. I wish you all a wonderful day and I hope to see you soon up here on my blog.
