Quick and Simple Friendship Valentine's Day Cards | Two Ways

Hi my friends!
Today I wanted to share with you two cards you can create quick and easy using one stamp set for Valentine's Day for any of your friends.  You also don't have to give these as Valentine's Day Cards, but anytime of the year!

I used the Heart Smile stamp set from Concord and 9th.  Their products have been some of my favorites.  They actually came out of the blue for me.  I knew they of course existed in the stamping industry, but since I've purchased some of their products, I've really been drawn to their stuff!  They have unique stamps and dies, and I love that about them!

I used my MISTI stamping tool to stamp the large solid heart, and I used two ink colors from Simon Says Stamp, Sunkist, and Rosie Cheeks!  I love these two pastel like colors!  

For this first card, I used the Rosie Cheeks color, and stamped it a few times getting a good saturated in color image.  I am stamping on my favorite white card stock, PTI stampers select white.  Once, I finished with this one, I moved onto the Sunkist color, and did the same.  I die cut both panels using the stitched frame from the Femme Frames die set from Mama Elephant.

I wanted to heat emboss my sentiments, so I used my powder tool first to prep the area of the heart, and then I stamped my sentiments and embossed in two embossing powders on each card, Gold and Liquid Platinum from Ranger.  I also added the arrow element to the Sunkist heart to added a bit more interest.

I backed the main panels with some PTI Hawaiian Shores card stock, and used the other die in the Femme Frames set to die cut the card stock.  

For the inside I stamped some sentiments from the Fun and Flirty stamp set from Paper Smooches, and added a heart to tie everything together.

For a final touch, I decided to add some shimmer with my Wink of Stella pen to the Rosie Cheeks heart and that completes both cards!

You can see all supplies used and the video tutorial below!  Thanks for stopping in today!  See you soon!
