Technique Time!

Tonight I was reading the Blog from CTMH titled Five Ways to Get out of a Creative Rut and Get Inspired (You can also read it here).  One of the suggestions is to try something new.  This week at Heart 2 Heart, we are challenging you to create something using a stamped background.  No matter if  this is a new technique for you or an old favorite, I hope you will be inspired to create a project and then link it!

I used the "love you" stamp from the January Stamp of the Month for my stamped background.  The paper is from the Heart Happy set, available through February. I originally planned to stamp a sentiment on the larger heart, but with all the patterned paper I used, I really needed to make the hearts solid and just allow the "love you" background serve as the sentiment.  The inside will be stamped with a Valentine's message.

Happy Stamping,


  1. I love how you stamped your background!! It is a fantastic valentines card!

  2. You did a lovely job on this card, both artistically and your technique. Your stamping is so evenly colored and lined up so nicely.
