SOS Challenge 87 Love or Valentines


Shopping Our Stash has their newest challenge up – make a card using Love, Red, Hearts or Valentines.

As I made all my valentines last month for Operation Write Home, this stumped me. I was mojo-less. I immediately thought circles but the ones I punched were the wrong color for the ink I wanted to use. Then I punched white circles and stamped and heat embossed I – Love – You on three different ones but then I couldn’t figure out the layout or correct background.

In the end, I came up with this. Not perfect but it will work.

Wausau Fleck Cardstock, black and patterned from stash. American Crafts pigment ink in Rouge, Hampton Art Clear Embossing Powder. Distress Ink Soot. ek Tools Long Oval Chain punch. Shapeabilities Large Circle Dies. Sentiment was created from the American Crafts Ginger alphabet set.
