Stampin’ Up! Sweet Conversations Valentine’s Day Card

Have you been getting lots of inspiration this week for Valentine’s Day cards?!

I’ve been using the Sweet Talk Suite and Sweet Conversations Bundle to make five Valentine’s Day cards this week with a variety of designs from super simple to a little more dazzled up.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Conversations Valentine’s Day Card

My card today starts off with Blushing Bride cardstock, which I embossed using the Painted Texture Embossing Folder.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Conversations Valentine’s Day Card

I used the Scalloped Contours Dies and cut out a panel from Basic White cardstock. On it I adhered a pattern from the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper.

I used the Sweet Hearts Dies to cut out another pattern in a banner, a tag, and the linked hearts from Real Red cardstock.

I did a “kiss technique” with the dotted stamp onto the solid heart in Highland Heather ink and then stamped the BFF over it in Memento Black ink. I stamped another solid Highland Heather heart and then cut them all out using the Sweet Hearts Dies.

Lastly, I added a Real Red ribbon through the tag.

All this week I’ve been sharing Valentine’s Day cards using the Sweet Conversations Bundle.

Yesterday my card had a handmade textured background with a video tutorial.
