Sue T.’s Valentine’s Day Series: Day Four
Sometimes you have to look at your stamps and think outside the box. This is a Christmas stamp I used this year. I kept looking and looking at it and thought -"hey a bit of tweeking and this makes a great Valentine stamp". Let's see if George notices I used the same stamp on his Valentine that I used for his Christmas card!

Classic Oval large die (Spellbinders)
Die cutting machine of your choice
Die cut the 3.5" scallop oval from the pink polka dot paper. Adhere to pink note card.
Cut oval out of the center of the scalloped oval to create a window in your card.
Ink just the boy and girl on the under the mistletoe stamp and stamp on the inside of the card to show through the window. I have two tips that will help: 1) Use the small Momentos black pad to ink the stamps with. The pointed end allows you to apply the ink just where you want it. 2) I carefully trimmed away the mistletoe on the stamp and glued it to the top of the stamp. That way I have it when I want it.
Stamp just valentine on the inside of the card and stamp "brings us together" to complete your saying. I carefully added the "'s" with a Sharpie to the end of valentine.
Using your copic markers, or any coloring tool you prefer, color in the boy and girl.
Stamp two tiny hearts on scrap paper with regal rose ink and cut out. Adhere onto card.
Stamp trio of hearts in regal rose above the heads of the boy and girl.
Stamp "you make my heart happy" on the front of the card.
I hope I showed you some new and innovative ways to use your stamps today! Come back tomorrow for our last card in this wonderful Valentine's day series.
