Love themed cards for valentines day by Jasleen Kaur

Hello!

This is Jasleen, back with my guest designer post for this month. And Valentine’s Day being just around the corner, I thought of sharing a few love –themed card ideas using a couple of stamp sets by CrafTangles the team sent me- one is ‘Love is in the Air’ and another one is ‘Always Yours’.

Both of these stamp sets are sentiment-based, so I simply chose a sentiment and co-ordinated them with some free-hand watercoloured images, as shown in the first two cards below:

Attempted some free hand water colouring
for the first time. I used Gansai Tambi 
water colours here. The sentiment
you are my sunshine from Always Yours set  goes perfectly well with
this image.

And heres the second card with some more water colouring:-

I started by lightly drawing a heart shape along the edge of a 4 by 5 inches Brustro water colour paper, using a pencil. Then I added a water colour wash using Gansai Tambi in different shades of pink, trying to confine the colours within the pencil drawing. After letting it dry, I stamped the sentiment ‘LOVE’ from ‘Love is in the Air’ set using Versamark Ink. I heat embossed it using silver embossing powder, and stamped ‘always’ in versafine onyx black ink. I mounted this panel over a standard sized card base and finished off using some sequins and a Baker’s twine.

And the third card :

This one’s a clean and simple card that uses multiple sentiments from the ‘Love is in the air’ stamp set and that die cut heart is from Sizzix Bigz-Heartfelt set. The sentiments on the white card base were stamped using Memento ink-London fog, whereas the one on the black strip was heat embossed in white.
