You Are Loved!

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all doing well. I’m finally (I hope) back into the swing of things. I spent the day cleaning my office/studio…it was a wreck!!! Why do we do that to ourselves? Sure if fun while we’re doing it though , huh? Not so fun after!!! hehe


I wanted to share a pretty Valentine with you today. It features the You are Loved Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! It’s such a beautiful set…don’t you think?


You Are Loved Clear-Mount Stamp Set - by Stampin' Up!

# 123777 for Wood Mount $31.95 and # 123779 for Clear Mount $23.95.

You could use this set all the time….just not for Valentine’s Day. It’s gorgeous and just the right touch to say “I Love You” or “I’m thinking of You”.

Want to know how I inked the Heart? I took about three baby wipes and folded them. Then I added some re-inker drops in Rose Red, Real Red and Pretty in Pink. Not on top of each other but in rows alternating. It’s like making your own ink pad. I then stamped and got this beautiful variance of color.

I cut it out with the  Hearts Framelits. The “With Love” is from the stamp Set called “Hand Penned Holidays” .

The Ribbon is the 7/8” Twill and tied in a single bow using my bow maker (for sale at the top of my blog or in multiples on the right side bar). I think a single bow is just enough to make this special.

Don’t forget the Pearls. I love our Bling that Stampin’ Up! offers…’s just the best!

Guess that’s it for today. I hope you have a great Saturday and get your fingers a little inky this weekend.

See ya next time.

Beautiful card! I love the idea of making an inkpad from baby wipes.
