Rainbow Valentine’s Day Card

Happy Monday! Today I’m sharing another Valentine’s Day card that you can make with a few supplies from your stamping stash or see the supplies I used at the bottom of this post.

This week we are CASEing (Copy and Selectively Edit) designer Steffi Helmschrott from Germany. She makes beautifully simple cards with a splash of artistic inspiration. You should check out her work.

Global Design Project Case the Designer Challenge #GDP224
Inspired by Global Design Project CASE challenge #GDP224. This week we are CASEing designer Steffi Helmschrott.

I started by stampin the tiny heart from the Meant to Be stamp set in a variety of rainbow colors. I used two ink pads (except for green) for each row of hearts, but I also used the stamping-off technique to add more variety to the rows. This is when you stamp once with an inked stamp and again without re-inking the stamp. The result is a lighter version of the same ink color.

Rainbow Valentine's Day Card with Stampin' Up!

The sentiment was heat-embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss powder over Basic Black cardstock. Yes, I hand cut the greeting closely around the letters. A little patience is worth the result. The sentiment was then glued over a piece of the hearts I die-cut from the Stitched Be Mine Dies.

A few black sequins were used to ground the sentiment and add a little more playfulness to the card.

I hope you enjoyed by card today. If you did, I’d love to hear your comments or questions below. If you’d like to play along with us at Global Design Project, we’d love to see how you CASEd Steffi’s card. Add it to the challenge lineup here.

    Love this Shawn – those hearts are stamped so perfectly and the white-on-black sentiment with the heart diecut behind pairs beautifully.
