Looking for some Valentine's Day card inspiration? We've got you covered.
Here's a fun card idea from Technique Tuesday's Shelley Goff.
This card packs a lot of punch with those metallic words and charms. Even though they look like real metal embellishments, they really aren't! They were cut from metallic and glitter papers with the Charming Hearts and Long Love steel dies. So cool!
A fun trick for the dies is you can use them on their own or you can pair them together like Shelley did. The charms can easily be hung on the love words!
You'll find more fun ideas for Valentine's Day, anniversaries and other love-themed occasions on the Technique Tuesday website. Be sure to check out our Idea Gallery.
Several Technique Tuesday team members have been playing with this month's Greenhouse Society stamp set, Carnation Friends. Julie colored the image using basic markers, Tam used our watercolor crayons, and Teri added color with Copic markers. They all report the slightly thicker lines and open space in this stamp set make it easy to use, even for those who aren't coloring experts. Yet it is sophisticated enough to delight the most experienced artist.
Teri here, and I'm excited to share with you a couple love-themed cards created with Technique Tuesday's Charming Hearts DIY Steel Dies. These cards would be great to give for Valentine's Day or on an anniversary, or even when you randomly just want to let someone you care about know you are thinking of them!
The Charming Hearts dies are super cute with hearts incorporated into each shape. There are charms, tags and banners! Oh, how fun they are!
I did something different with my second card. I created the design by taking several of the charms and arranging them together in a grid pattern.
You might be wondering about the sentiments on these cards. They both came from the You Aren't Normal clear stamp set. It's such a fun, sassy stamp set.
