What is Valentine's Day without Cupid?! Paper Smooches' Love-Struck set has the cutest Cupid and Lauren created this card today with him featured. Her card base has two layers of white card stock by Neenah and pink card stock by Bazzill. She also used white card stock to die cut clouds from Lawn Fawn's Blue Skies set and a banner from Lawn Fawn's Stitched Journaling Card set.

She stamped the sentiment onto the banner and Cupid onto a separate piece of white card stock. She glued the clouds in place with some of them adhered with 3D Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives including the banner. Cupid is colored in with Letraset alcohol markers (Tan, Mustard, Ice Grey 1, Ice Grey 2, Cool Grey 1, Blush, Oatmeal, Denim Blue, Sunkissed Pink) and also popped up with 3D Squares.

To add some shine to this card, Lauren included a few pink Twinkle Goosebumps by Queen & Co. and some shimmer around a few clouds and Cupid using At You Spica in Clear.

We love how cute Cupid turned out and encourage you to come into Stamp Fever to see this card in person - the shimmer is hard to see in a photo but so fun in person!

Quill You Be My Valentine

We're back to start the week with another Valentine's Day card by Lauren! For this card, she used the Paper Smooches set, Love-Struck. The card base is three layers - white card stock by Neenah and pink card stock by Bazzill. She stamped the sentiment with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

On a separate piece of white card stock, she stamped different arrows and colored them in using Letraset alcohol markers in Hot Pink and Sunkissed Pink. Anything colored with Hot Pink was also colored in with an At You Spiza pen in Clear to give it a little shimmer. Lauren cut out the arrows and used 3D Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives to attach the different arrows to the card.

It's a very simple card and would be great to give to anyone - it's not overly done so it would be a great masculine valentine!

Jar of Hearts

Lauren wanted to make some Valentine's Day cards using Paper Smooches Love-Stuck set. Granted, she only ended up using the "heartfelt gratitude" sentiment on this card, but we still love how it turned out! Lauren started with a white base and added layers of red and pink Bazzill card stock. Before gluing on the pink card stock, she stamped teeny tiny hearts from Lawn Fawn to create her own background. Then, she layered on a paper doily and some snippets of seam binding ribbon in pink and red.

The jar filled with hearts is from the Summertime Charm set by Lawn Fawn and Lauren stamped the "heartfelt gratitude" on the label that she used some Lawn Fawn Peace Love Joy Petite Paper. She then wrapped the jar lid with twine.

We love that the card has shades of pink and red, perfect for the holiday!

Another Love Valentine's Day Card

We're back again with a card by Robin using the same "love" die as yesterday. Again using the inlay technique for the word "Love" (Memory Box) Robin used Petallics Cover stock in a soft peachy/pink. The beautiful heart die is the Whispers-Viney Heart from Die-Versions.  Both the word love and the heart use the matte silver paper from Bazzill. The card is embellished with pearl stick ons.

We're going to be at CHA this weekend and we're very excited! We can't wait to show you the new product that we'll be carrying. Have a great weekend!

With Love

Lynette made this gorgeous card using some paper leftover from the Lawn Fawn Peace Joy Love petite paper pack. Although the paper is themed for Christmas, she decided to see how it would look on a Valentine's Day card. Lynette found that it works well for this holiday also! Everything on this card is from Lawn Fawn, right down to the heart die-cuts, twine, and beautiful sequins. When stamping the sentiment on the front, she only inked up the "With Love" from the "Handmade With Love" stamp set.

Isn't it just beautiful? Stop by Stamp Fever to see it person and get supplies to make your own!
