SSS Valentine's Cards

Good evening! I don't know if you briefly saw the special Simon Says Stamp Valentine Card Kit last week - it sold out in record time, within hours I believe! Mine didn't arrive until after I had left for CHA last week, and I didn't have a chance to sit down and play with it until today finally. And while I know many people were very sad that it sold out so quickly, most of the items in the kit are still available separately (although I noticed even several of THOSE were sold out as well!) Hopefully it will be back in stock soon - in the meantime, here is some inspiration for either those who are lucky enough to have gotten their hands on it - or when it comes back in stock for anyone else who might be interested. All supplies are linked at the bottom of this post if you want more info on any of them.

First up - I have a trio of simple little notecards using the SSS 4 Bar Pre-scored envelopes - they use the little heart die that was included in the kit (I couldn't find it separately, but any heart die would work, like THESE):

I die cut each heart 3 times from a strip of pattern paper from the kit, then stamped some sentiments on each one from the little Candy Hearts stamp set - as well as stamping the main sentiment underneath. I used my Mini Misti to make it super quick and easy to stamp them all in the same place.

I added some washi behind the hearts with the included Pinkfresh Studios Felicity Washi Stickers - tearing the edges slightly for a fun edge.

Finished off by attaching the hearts with foam adhesive over the washi.

And then...I decided to use the negatives from all the little hearts I cut to put together another card! This one is a full size A2 card that I made by layering all the negatives together, adding one of the cute Doodlebug Heart Paper Clips to the top corner.

Added a sentiment from the Doodlebug Cream and Sugar Icons Stickers, a few more die cut hearts, and a few enamel glitter hearts from Crate Paper's Cute Girl Embellishments pack. I love how it matches the beautiful SSS Metallic Audrey Blue Envelope!

All product links are all below - including affiliate links where possible, which simply means if you use one of the links below that I receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
