Blog Blitz – New Sweet Seal, Heart Rays and Wirework Hearts Clear Stamp Set by Jean Okimoto


The new Heart Rays and Sweet Seal get ready to celebrate Valentine's Day - and the midpoint of our Blog Blitz.  A versatile greeting from the new Wirework Hearts Clear Stamp Set becomes a Valentine message with the addition of a diecut heart.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here - hope this card makes you smile today!


Cut a 4-¼" x 5-½" Wrapped Stitch Rectangle from white cardstock.  Cut it with Heart Rays.  

Cut Sweet Seal from speckled gray cardstock or a scrap of cardboard.  Attach a scrap of black cardstock behind the eye and nose cutouts.  Cut another seal from black cardstock and layer it for dimension and a bit of a shadow.  Lightly sponge the edges with Lightning Black Brilliance.

Stamp the greeting on white cardstock with Lightning Black.  Trim it with the 1" x 2-¼" Rectangle Basics die.

Cut the large heart from Heart Rays (hidden behind the seal in the photos) from bubblegum pink cardstock.  Stamp it - at an angle to match Heart Rays -  with the "day" portion of the greeting.

Attach the diecuts to an A-6 (6-¼" x 4-⅝") bubblegum pink card - use foam dots to attach the greeting.  Add gold gem stickers


Hope you're enjoying our Blog Blitz and are inspired to start creating your Valentine cards, treat wrappers and tags with the great dies and stamps from our January Release.
