A Sweetheart of a Card

My dad always gives my sister and I Sweetheart candies at Valentine's Day, even as adults. When I was stamping with the Adorning Arrows My Paper Pumpkin Kit from January, I envisioned a sweetheart card. I've seen some online by other subscribers, but here's my version:

I love how the Rose Red ink blurred when I watercolored--just like the real ones. Some were so blurry they were hard to read as kids.

Basically, I stamped in Basic Black for the edges of the hearts, then the messages in Rose Red, and then used an Aquainter Painter to add the pastel colors. Pretty easy and basic. I tried many embellishments, but just love it simple.

I also finished up the rest of the treat boxes from the Adorning Arrows kit and as I did, I realized this tip:

I had wasted a few of the diecuts because I was bad at aiming. However, once I set the white diecut on the darker paper, I could tell exactly where to stamp.

Remember, there's a Sale-a-bration Special if you want to join the My Paper Pumpkin Club!

Happy Stamping!
