The Sure Do Love You stamp set was one of the first sets I picked from the 2018 Occasions Catalog. It also happens to be the first of four designs we made in my January Stamp Class. I wanted to create a masculine or gender neutral Valentine design for those guys or teens in our lives.
BASE: The card base is 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4 Lemon Lime Twist embossed with the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder horizontally. When designing I wanted to have the stripes on all four edges. So I cut a piece of Lemon Lime Twist the same width as the square and embossed the stripes vertically and placed onto the base.
FULL OF HEARTS SQUARE: The Sure Do Love You stamp set includes the three different small heart shapes with fun sentiments. The non-traditional colors I chose were Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Tempting Turquoise. It took me a little while to get the Type-A “random” colors and stamps. Lol! Oh……I almost forgot. The Berry Burst and Temping Turquoise are really strong so I stamped them off before stamping onto the Whisper White square. Can you guess what I thought was missing???……sparkle. Giggles! The stamped square was layered onto a slightly larger square of Turquoise Glimmer Paper. (This amazing colored glimmer paper is also available in the 2018 Occasions Catalog. Sweet! It adds just a tough of sparkle but not too much. Of course I had to add some height so I popped the square with Dimensionals.
SENTIMENT: This was a happy accident. I had a 3/4″ strip left over on my table and found that it fit perfectly across the third row of hearts. I was excited to find the “Love You” from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set and then stamped it in Tempting Turquoise. Finally, to add another height layer I popped the strip with Dimensionals.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a great weekend and upcoming Valentines Day!
