Ink blot shop love notes card and enveLope set

Hi Friends and Happy Wednesday! Just stopping by to let you know my first blog post as an Ink Blot Shop Design Team Member is now up on the Ink Blot Shop Blog.

The Valentine/Galentine Holiday is one of my favorite cardmaking seasons with all the Hearts, Loves and Pinks & Reds. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I’m sharing an Embossed Love Letter Card & Envelope Set using the Sending Love & Stretched Sentiments Stamp Sets.

Envelope Decorating

For the decorated envelope, I stamped and embossed the Address Label from the Sending Love Stamp Set (Masking the Sun) with white embossing powder to a Kraft Envelope. Then I colored the image with pink/red and grey colored pencils. 

Tip: When coloring envelopes, I insert a piece of cardstock inside the envelope before coloring. For colored pencils this gives me a nice flat/smooth surface to color on and for Copic coloring the cardstock insert prevents color bleeding through to the back of the envelope. 

To finish the envelope, I stamped the Sending Love sentiment in VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink. 

Cardmaking Details

For the Love Notes Card, I stamped and heat embossed the envelope images with white embossing powder to red cardstock and fussy cut the images.

I placed a white card panel in my MISTI, I added the red envelopes to the top of the card panel so I could position the Love & You Stretched Sentiments. Then I stamped the sentiments with dark red ink. I moved the card panel up “just a smidge” in the MISTI before stamping the sentiments with light pink ink.

To finish the card, I stamped a few of the cute little hearts from the Stretched Sentiments stamp set in red ink and adhered the decorated card panel to a pink cardbase. 

So there we are friends, a Clean & Simple Love Notes Envelope & Card Set using the Sending Love & Stretch Sentiments Stamp. Thanks for stopping by & Big Paper Hugs!
