Valentine Truck with Bears

Hello!

Valentine’s Day is only four weeks away and I’m getting a head start on my Valentine’s Day cards.

I am in love with this brand new adorable stamp – LoveBear2Stamp – from The Stamps of Life!  It has so many fun hearts, Valentines, two adorable bears, and of course an old fashioned pick-up truck, my favorite! It has a coordinating die set called Valentine Truck w/Bears.  You can use the die set to die cut several pieces of cardstock and/or patterned paper and then paper pierce them together to form the image. This is great if you don’t like to color — you can simply use your papers to make the die cut. At the bottom of this post is a link to my card tutorial on YouTube.

For my first card, I used the stamp and colored it with Copic markers. The stamp is a large stamp which will fill most of the front of an A2 size card base. Therefore, you really don’t need many other things to add to the card front to decorate it. Just put the stamp on a card, color it in, add a few papers, and your done!

For my second card, I used only the dies. It is shown here on a step-up card base. I also used the mini heart stencil to create my own patterned paper.

I also made a third card. This card demonstrates that you can fill the pick-up truck with anything! It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day related. You can simply cut the hearts away and add something else of your choice. For my card, I added Easter eggs!
