I don’t typically do anything special for Valentine’s Day. For example, today I came home from work, ate dinner, blocked a shawl, and dozed off on the couch listening to Pandora. Sounds thrilling doesn’t it? Once I finish writing this post I plan to knit for a while before going to bed. I do really need a dog. Anyway, the point is Valentines and all its associated heart imagery doesn’t do much for me. So I was surprised to find myself liking a stamp set in the Stampin Up catalog called Sealed with Love.
I think it was the envelope die cut and tiny notes that did it. Maybe the arrows…but it was love at first sight. My stamping demonstrator who organizes the stamping group I craft with was offering a class using this set and my mom and I attended. We spent a few hours stamping and cooking up some Valentines cheer. It’s been many, many years since I took a stamping class and it was a lot of fun. By the end of the session we had made 4 cards and 4 treat holders.
The aqua card and the treat bag in the back are my favorites I think. We got a great sampling of the stamp set and it’s quite versatile. I’m hoping this might kick start me into making some Valentine cards in the future. But the set has many elements that can be used year-round for a variety of occasions. I’m really pleased to have taken the class and hope to join another one soon. In the meantime, some close-ups
The envelope is adorable! I loved adding the glitter heart to seal it.
Hope that you have a happy heart today.
Blessings to you,
