Love Mail

Happy Tuesday!

Isn’t it so nice to receive little notes of love from their dearest friends and family members? Well today I have a video tutorial for you today, featuring stamps from Paper Smooches and Simon Says Stamp to create this fun little Valentine’s Day card!

I love shimmer and sparkle, and this card certainly has a lot of it… *Wink, wink*!  I used a combination of glitter paper, Heidi Swapp color shine, and Wink of Stella glitter in various portions of this project, and all of these sparkling elements look oh so pretty together!

I did a lot of stamping and die cutting on the main panel for this card; the heart dies are from the Paper Smooches “Balloons” wise dies, and I thought it would be really cute to have the envelope, which is from the Simon Says Stamp “Sending Happy Thoughts” stamp set,  hang from the balloons…  like it’s being sent by air to its recipient! :)

The colors I chose for this card were inspired by the Paper Smooches “Picture Perfect” challenge, which featured a lot of pink, gold and white tones and I loved the color combination.

Enjoy the video and thanks so much for stopping by!




This card is submitted into the Paper Smooches “Picture Perfect” challenge, the Simon Says Stamp “Red+Pink” Monday challenge, the CASology week 133 “Love” challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Flickr #12 “So Sparkly” challenge.
