My daughters love to stamp with me. They especially love to use my Stampin'Up! stuff, because somehow, they know, it's the good stuff. With Valentine's Day coming up, we needed to knock out 16 special valentines for my daughter's preschool class. We always break out the good stuff for these special occasions, and here's what we came up with...
Of course, if I were making them by myself, for one or two special friends, I would probably add another layer or two of hearts from the framelit heart dies, and probably some glitter, too. And it would have to be a chocolate lollipop, because most of my friends are not 5 years old. But we're trying to keep it simple for my daughter. (And we can't show off too much for her class, we wouldn't want to make those kids that BUY their valentine cards feel bad.)
- Pretty in Pink card stock cut to 7x4 1/2, then folded in half to be 3 1/2x4 1/2.
- Hearts Collection Framelits Die (item 125599, $26.95) using the largest heart that is not scalloped. Place the folded edge, as shown in the picture, so that the card stock does not reach the point of the heart.
- Stamp the heart image from the Sprinkled Expressions stamp set in Melon Mambo ink.
- Stamp the greeting form Teeny Tiny Wishes in Melon Mambo ink.
- Punch two holes in the creased center and thread your lollipop through.
- Repeat 15 times.
