Valentine’s Cards: using creative supplies

Hi All – I wanted to show you some super easy & fun cards using some supplies that you might not think to use. These cards are easy to mass produce and don’t require a lot of supplies, so they are perfect if you’re on a budget!

I used some Kraft cardstock, cut to 4.25″ x 4.25″ and some stamps from Hero Arts “Valentine Sayings” clear stamp set. To create the hearts, I used a punch from Stampin Up along with some FREE colored paper. Yep, totally free :)

…paint samples!!

I thought these would be fun to use because they have a perfect gradient of color. I had fun picking out a few swatches that would be great to use on Valentine’s Day. I’ve seen people make Christmas trees with these too – so much you can do.

I used some foam adhesive to adhere all of the hearts to give the cards a little more interest, as they are pretty simple to begin with.

…and just a fun little sentiment on the inside. I will be listing this set for sale in my Etsy shop if any of you are interested 😉 Have a great week!
