Mass-Produced Valentines - You Warm My Heart

Hello!  Yesterday, I posted an in-progress photo on my facebook page.  I was mass-producing (if 8 can be called en masse) Valentines so that I could get them sent out by today!


For the first time ever, I used my Tim Holtz stamping platform for it’s intended purpose, as this set has lot of little pieces-parts to stamp.  I then colored them all at once, die cut them all at once, and glued them.  It did save a lot of time and I got all 8 cards done in less than two hours, and no two are exactly the same!


Supplies: Lawn Fawn Snow Day stamp set, Hero Arts black marker-safe black ink, Versafine Black ink, Spectrum Noir markers, Avery Elle Wonky Stitched Rectangles dies, Most patterned paper is from Pebbles Yours Truly 6x6 Paper pad, but a few are Recollections, Sakura Stardust gel pen for adding glitter to snowflakes

I would love to participate in these challenges!
Cute Card Thursday - Love
SimonSaysStamp Monday Challenge - Love is in the Air
SimonSaysStamp Wednesday Challenge - It Must be Love
WordArtWednesday -  Anything Goes

I ended up using all these cards, and then had to sift through my stash and found quite a few floral cards that had non-specific sentiments and used those for the older people in my life that enjoy cards.  I really dropped the ball on Valentine creating this year. I either need to start making them throughout the year, or start right after Christmas next year!  Hope you have a good day!

Oh, me too! I wait until it is almost too late. I did a mass stamping project for this year too, will show it next week.

I so agree with the love of the Misti, probably will have to always have one of those now :)
These are just too adorable, and so nice you were able to get so many done. I only managed one for my daughter and one for the hubby and that's it, so as far as I am concerned you did fantastic!

These are ADORABLE (all in caps cause I mean it)! I am in love with those bunny stamps and really like how you tackled all of these cards at once. Each one is lovely, yet they were unique in their own way. I liked seeing the difference that your background patterned paper made. I'm sure your recipients will love these because they're rabbit-tastic! Thank you for taking the time to share them for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

Wonderful set Heidi. Yes a stamping platform is fabulous for getting a lot of repetitive stuff done.

These are all so sweet. I feel ashamed as I only got one done this year for my DH. The grandkids did even get one from me...Bad grandma!

Yours are so lovely!

Love these cute designs, what a great idea to use the same layout and change it up with the colouring and design paper, makes each one unique!
