Quick & Easy Valentine’s Cards! Ideas for Love Messages stamp set

Hello, all! Kristina Werner here with some clean and simple inspiration for the new year! I challenged myself to create a couple cards using only one stamp set–a greeting stamp set! I used the Love Messages stamp set to create two Valentine’s Day cards.

For the first card, I used what small images the greeting stamp set had (three small hearts) and created a line of heart “flowers”. It was as simple as drawing stems from the hearts and adding simple leaves! I used four colors of VersaFine Clair ink for the hearts (Charming Pink, Golden Meadow, Warm Breeze, and Blue Belle) and one for the greeting (Morning Mist). I also added some dots and a small drawn heart with a white Gelly Roll pen.


The second card was created by masking a diagonal rainbow with only Post-It tape. I masked off each stripe and blended the colors using a Mini Round Blending tool. I also added some drawn hearts and dots using the same white gel pen.

I hope you enjoy the cards today!

  2. Hello Kristina. Sometimes clean and simple cards are just perfect, and these are! I love my elaborate cards too, but sometimes simple is just what the doctor ordered. TFS.
