Valentine's Day is a Celebration of Love

Hi Everyone,

With the new Occasions Mini Catalog starting today, I just wanted to share a quick creative project idea to inspire you ready for Valentine's Day. It's hard to believe that it is only a few weeks away, so there is no time like the present to start creating cards and gifts for the loved ones in your life.

Today's Creative Card Share is a project featured on my Stampin' Up! website Project Gallery here.  This beautiful card features the new stamp set, P.S. I Love You, which can be found on page 8 of the new Occasions Mini Catalog (available in both Wood & Clear Mount).

I love the embossed resist technique used to create the heart image and the heart circle stamp makes a wonderful background on the card base. This card also features several new products including the Blushing Bride Smooch Spritz (page 9) and the Calypso Coral Baker's Twine (page 35).

In case you are not familiar with Calypso Coral, it is one of the new In Colors for 2011-2013 and you can find the beautiful ruffled Calypso Coral ribbon in the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog, as well as the other wonderful In Color products.

This card design is simple but has a definite Wow factor to it. It would also make a great birthday, anniversary or thinking of you card.  You could create a gorgeous card set featuring this layout and vary the colors for each card for a beautiful gift idea.

I hope you have enjoyed this Creative Card Share I hope it helps inspire you to create a special card for someone special in your life.

Until Next Time.
Happy Stampin',
