Simple Stamping Sunday: A Little Twinkle Valentine’s Day Card

For this week’s Simple Stamping card, I used the Little Twinkle stamp set to make a Valentine’s Day card! The Little Twinkle set has been used primarily for new baby cards and projects…and up until this point, I had only used it for that as well. But for January’s Simple Stamping Challenge from Stampin’ Up!, we were asked to make a Valentine’s Day card, and I wanted to mix it up a bit. So I figured I would try using the set for that instead!

Normally, a Simple Stamping card uses only a card base, one stamp set, and ink. But for this month’s challenge, we were allowed to use a punch too. So for this card, I used the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch to make the little hearts. Using the punched hearts adds just a tiny bit of extra detail that really makes the card pop!

Here are step by step instructions for this card:

  1. Use an Aqua Painter to add a few drops of water to one drop of Pool Party ink. Swirl to mix and then brush on a light watercolor wash on the front of the card. Let dry.
  2. Stamp the heart image from the Little Twinkle set in Smoky Slate ink.
  3. Stamp the sentiment below the heart in Lovely Lipstick ink.
  4. Punch out four tiny hearts from Lovely Lipstick card stock using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. Apply to the card with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.
  5. Stamp your envelope to match (if desired).

While this card is definitely different for Valentine’s Day, I like it! I hope you do too!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
