Below is a quick card that I made using one of the darling stamps from the set, along with a sentiment from the set "Summer Letter Seals"
by Whimsy's Raindrop Echo Designs.
I colored the image using my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. The papers are from Stampin Up, white card stock is by Neenah. I embellished with a punched out butterfly (MS), a button with some twine, and then of course glitter.
Oh, and did you notice my new watermark on the card above? It's been designed by the amazing Ann, who is the designer behind Whimsy's Raindrop echo Designs sentiments, and she also makes the most amazing watermarks. These can also be purchased at Whimsy Stamps, several designs to choose from, you can go check them out HERE.
I had the idea to use these cute stamps to create valentines for my daughter's class. Below is a start, I still need to make about 20 more, but I won't start until after the holidays. I just thought this set would be perfect for that, and I love cute little sentiments that are included in the set.
These are really simple and quick to make, I simply added a little designer paper strip, and then the image which I cut out using circle nestabilities. The sentiment was punched out using SU's word window punch, and then I added some twine and a little bit of glitter. These were so much fun to make, and it's a great way to use up small paper scraps.
We will add a little pack of skittles or m&m's on the inside using a glue dot, once they are starting to sell Valentine's things. These are the perfect size for them.
