Arrows and Hearts!

Hello my Crafty Friends!  I hope that you have had a great Tuesday!  Today I have a Valentine card to share!  It's hard to believe that Valentines Day is just 9 days away already!  I've hardly made enough Valentine Cards!  We are busy into Valentine mode over here as we prepare for a Valentine crafting session on Breakfast Television next week, figure out what Valentines to make for classmates, decide what Valentine treats for the classes (this year will be my first year with both kids in school!)  and actually figure out some Valentine plans!

Did you see that on Hero Arts blog they are sharing cards featuring HA's and Basic Grey's True Love collection?  I have both clear stamp sets from this collection and today's card features stamps from both:


I stamped the three arrows and small hearts from the two sets all over the card. To easily get the same angle for each time I stamped I placed the paper sideways and stamped straight (I lined up the two corners to a lined piece of paper)  It made it so much easier (I may have tried first not doing it that way...)  I really really love the I love you arrow!  Oh the possibilities! I was excited to play with the arrows as I've noticed the trend of arrows lately!  The stamped background seemed busy enough so I went with a strip of grey and white cardstock and added some xoxo's die cut from my new die by Hero Arts Uppercase alphabets!  I also used all Hero Arts shadow inks on this card:  Wet Cement, Bubble Gum Pink and Red Royal.  And the stamps I used are Hero Arts:  True Love and Amore!  

I hope to be back soon with more Valentines Day cards!  :>

8 days away here... that's still a lot of cards I have to make!

Love this card Anita! Your stamping is just *perfect*!! I actually thought it was patterned paper!!! Thanks for the tip on aligning these for stamping, I will definitely have to try that!!
