Valentines

Welcome to the CREATION STATION BLOG HOP!  This month we are all about VALENTINES!! The big day is less than two weeks away so you’ve come to the right place.  The blog hop is full of fabulous ideas so make sure you visit all of them!!

I was so excited to order new supplies that I didn’t think about Valentine’s Day being around the corner….so no Valentine sets (sad face).  BUT WAIT!  I know there are others out there that did the same, so I am giving you a couple of Valentines using everyday stamps.

Sky is the Limit becreativewithnicole.com

This first card was so much fun to make!  If you look closely at the background, you can see the bokeh effect which is a favorite technique of mine.  It gives such a lovely soft look that’s perfect for a sky scene.

A couple of vellum clouds added in give more interest without overtaking the plane.  And of course since it’s a Valentine, I had to add some hearts!  This just goes to show you how versatile SKY IS THE LIMIT really is!  The variety of greetings really makes this one a gem and must have!!

Now, how about one that’s clean and simple??  I used a Sale-a-bration set that is another must have…HELLO.

Hello by becreativewithnicole.com

How is that for simple!  I love the giant HELLO in this set, it’s just so darn useful!  I was able to add in another stamp set and create a beautiful Valentine.

The swirly “love” from HELLO LIFE fit just right below “hello”.  It turned out just as I pictured it!  A few RED GLIMMER hearts and voila’ a Valentine!

    Your soaring card is DIVINE!!! It is perfectly designed from the color palette, to the papers, to the layout–everything. It’s perfect, I can’t say it enough. Smiles, Elizabeth
