Valentine's Day Card with Lost Coast Design

Hi Dreamers!
I have still been making Valentine's Day cards!  This batch is for my family and friends and will go out in the mail tomorrow.  Today's card is made with a super sweet stamp  from Lost Coast Designs called Flower Sisters.  This image also comes with a pretty sentiment, but I did not use it on my card as I wanted a Valentine's.   TIP:  The stamp is a photo stamp.  This type of stamp always turns out best stamped on glossy white CS with dye ink.  I used black dye ink here.  Take a look.

Materials List:
CS: Glossy White, 2 shades of pink; red; pink polka dot
Ink: Black dye
Copic Markers
Heart Punch
Love word die cut--A muse studios
Spellbinders-Labels 22
Lace, ribbon, rhinestones. Pink tulle


  • Make a card from medium pink CS
  • Glue a piece of lace fabric over the card front
  • Stamp the image on glossy white CS with black dye ink
  • color with Copic Markers
  • Cut the image out with the Spellbinders die---trim the side edges off after die cutting
  • Layer onto light pink and red CSs

  • Punch a heart from polka dot paper and glue to card front
  • Wrap pink tulle around the stamped piece and secure on the back
  • Tie White satin ribbon around stamped piece and knot a pink ribbon around bow
  • die cut the word love from pink CS
  • Add rhinestones

Isn't this a lovely stamp??!!  This would be great for  Mother's day for a friend or sister too!  Oh, and it would be so cute for a friend's birthday!
