Valentine’s Day…with a twist!

Do you ever have trouble finding exactly the right sentiment for a card?  Stampin’ Up! are brilliant at covering all the beautiful moments but sometimes showing that you’re cranky can be a struggle.

Do you remember that Janet Jackson song “What have you done for me lately?”  My friends and I have often commented that a card like this could be handy at times 🙂 This video will have you reaching for your largest shoulder pads in no time!

We did have a fabulous stamp that I’ve used on this card, it is a rotary style so you can make up your own words.  In it’s place you could use any of our alphabet sets.  Scroll to the bottom of this post for a supply list.

This card features a background technique that I will be showcasing this Friday at my classes.  Check back here after that to see how you can recreate this look on your own cards.  It is not too late to book into the classes.

The card above was a lot of fun to make but it is not at all how I feel about my Valentine.  For his card I have cased Cindy Schuster with some very minor changes.  The stamp is from “Suite Sentiments”.


I wanted to make a card for each of the kids and so I followed the basic design above and simply changed the background colour (and then stamped the “kid” with the “Back to Basics Alphabet” and matching ink).  I changed the washi tape to a gorgeous sparkly one that we had at our previous Sale-a-bration.
