Simon released a grouping of products called “Better Together”. The release celebrates life, sharing hugs, sharing love, spending time together, giggling, laughing, expressing how much we care for each other are great ways to celebrate our lives. Even though we are often physically far apart from our friends and family, we can connect through words and cards are such a delightful way for us to reach out to one another.
I’ve created several quick, easy and very simple to make Valentine’s Day cards using just one stamp set called Locking Hearts. I challenged myself to come up with more than just one card idea and I’m sharing my results in this post. I hope you like them!
All of these cards are simple one layer projects that involve a bit of stamping and heat embossing. I did die cut a window in one of the cards to create a fun locking mechanism using a die matching the stamp set I used.
For the color combo for these card I went with aqua, black, white and a hint of gold. For the gold I used cute little enamel glitter bows from My Mind’s Eye and for the white I used white pigment ink and also white embossing powder.
As always, I’m sharing a quick video tutorial showing how these were made. You can watch it here or on my Youtube channel. If you are new to my blog and my Youtube channel and you like my projects, please remember to subscribe!
I really enjoyed working with the Better Together release from Simon and I’ve already shared several cards on my blog, I’d love for you to check them out. Just click on the image to go to a specific blog post:
