Stars & Stamps Sketch #99

My husband and I have never been big on celebrating Valentine's day, even when we were dating. I'm extremely blessed that he expresses his love for me many times a day and often surprises me with fun stuff for no reason.  Therefore, Valentine cards are hard for me to make. But I do like the idea of everyday "love" cards so I thought I'd make a simple, understated, card using this sketch.

I also wanted to try a ribbon tying technique from a tutorial by my friend and former shipper, Dixie.  It worked like a charm and was so simple!  If you didn't see the tutorial, check it out here!

Patterned Paper: Echo Park "For the Record"
Stamp: Hero Arts CL342
Punch: Martha Stewart
Inks: Archival Sepia and Distress Tea Dye


  1. Yummy! Looooveeee that paper and the xo's! Great job! TFS!!!

  2. This card is a winner! That Echo Park paper is so fun. I like that it can be used all year.

  3. Hi, Wendy,

    Great card -- love the colors. (And, I, too, love Dixie's ribbon technique!)

    Thanks for stopping by Scrapping with Purpose -- and for your kind words.

    Happy New Year!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
