Valentine LOVE, Post 4-4

Happy Valentine's Day
stampin' friends!  Here are a couple more Valentine cards to inspire you!

This card was the result of waaaaay too much Pinterest surfing!  Well, maybe never too much . . . ha!  Banners are all the rage, and I love love love my new Banners Framelits dies - they make banner tails perfect and quick to make!



I flared the banner tails a bit  by pressing and curling them between my thumb and forefinger . . .



The embossed strip is separate from the card - I embossed it, wrapped the ribbon around the bottom edge, and attached it over the tops of the banners and flush with the top edge of the card fold.



All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

This card was inspired by another card designed by my stampin' friend, Shirley Guzzi.  So simple - I love that! - and yet elegant and pretty.



I don't often use Rose Red, but I had some Rose Red Seam Binding that I wanted to use up, so I pulled out the card stock and ink, too.



The tulip images uses the two-step stamping technique:  the more solid image is stamped lighter, and the detail image is stamped darker.  I stamped both images using Rose Red ink.  I 'stamped off' the solid image on scratch paper before stamping it again on the white cardstock - this creates a lighter image.  Then I stamped the detail image full strength right over the solid image to create darker detail.
