Project of the Month

Current project of the Month is: Jan/February 2008 Heartlines


To create this card you will need:

  • CL161 Sweet Valentine Clear Stamp Set
  • Happy Valentine Stamp (I used CL159 Heartlines Clear Stamp Set)
  • 62322 Valentine Sentiments 12x12 paper
  • Rose Petals Chalk Queue Inkads and Primary Elements Chalk Queue
  • Waterbrush
  • Onyx Black Versafine Inkpad
  • C6 White card, Dark Red Card and White Card
  • Double Sided Tape or Glue stick
  • Trimmer and Scissors


  1. Cut the Valentine Sentiments to cover the white card allowing a border, with room to stamp the Happy Valentines greeting underneath. Use the dark red inkpad from the Rose Petals Queue inkpad and wipe around the edge of paper to give a border effect. Mount onto card.
  2. Stamp the heartlines image onto white card using the black versafine inkpad.
  3. Wipe the Chalk Queue inkpads onto an old CD or plastic surface, then using your waterbrush use to paint your image (as shown above). I used the Yellow from the Primary Element set to colour the washing line rope and pegs. Alternatively colour with your own pens, pencils or paints.
  4. Trim and mount onto dark red card and layer over the Valentine Sentiments paper on card.
  5. Stamp the Happy Valentines greeting with Black versafine inkpad.

Another idea using the CL161 Sweet Valentine set.

Valentines Day

NB: These stamps can be used for many occasions and are certainly not limited to Valentines Day.
