Do you remember Valentine’s Day as a youngster? I folded a piece of red construction paper in half and cut the shape of the heart. And, then I decorated it and gave it away. Of course, I signed it with the obligatory “Love, Kim.”
I also remember decorating shoe boxes to collect the little Valentine cards we collected in school.
Paper crafting has certainly come a long way in the last fifty years! We have access to awesome rubber stamps, coordinating punches and die cuts, beautiful Designer Series Paper, and much more.
Valentine’s Day is one of the largest card-sending holidays of the year. Are you ready? Today I’m sharing a sampling of cards using a variety of current Stampin’ Up! product.
Also, enjoy the video inserted at the end of this blog post. I showcase an array of cards and make one with the Hearts & Kisses Bundle.

I heat embossed the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings with white embossing powder.
I did a bit of white heat embossing to make the sentiment pop.
For the background, I used the “splotch” from the Hearts & Kisses stamp set. I inked it in Blushing Bride and stamped “off” on scratch paper before making the background.
More white heat embossing to make the sentiment pop! Isn’t the foil paper gorgeous?
Take a look at this video that shares a bit more information about the card.
