This year I made 55 Valentines! There are so many beautiful Valentines for the women/girls in your life but what about the men? And boys? Here are some I came up with this year.
This used some elements from the January Simon Says Stamp card kit. I used the woodgrain paper and colored it with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo distress inks. I then cut the clock out of craft paper with dark brown paper for the hands. The die is Weathered Clock from the Tim Holtz Alterations by Sizzix. I stamped the sentiment included in the kit on a kraft paper sticker also included in the kit and mounted it on dark brown paper, cut around the sticker and adhered it with a pop dot.
Here’s the card I made for the teens and tweens. I saw the Technique Tuesday stamp set “Love Always Wins” and realized it would be a perfect sentiment for the older boys on my list. I used paper from the SEI collection “All Star” for the background and stamped the sentiment on red paper. I mounted it on black and there you are. Inside I stamped the sentiment included in the set – “live in the moment, Love Life”. Perfect for boys!
Here’s the one for the little boys. Hearts were punched out from assorted Valentine papers – no pink! – using the heart shaped Martha Stewart punch. I used black wire from the jewelry department to fashion the antenna.
The last 4 are all based on the Mini Valentine Blueprint Stamps from Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous.
Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
