OK, Christmas is down and the new year is just hours away…Time to start the Valentine’s. I love making and sending Valentines to the kiddos in my life.

Today I have two to share. They are basically clean and simple designs but I did create some smooshed ink backgrounds and used my stamp set to create a “design” on these backgrounds.

This first one uses Texture Tiles 7 to create the design on my background piece then I colored up the heart from the Heart Candy set and added it on top – this one is so fun!!

The second one uses Vintage Romance. I used the key to create a pattern in the background then. I colored the lock and key, fussy cut them and adhered them to a die cut circle – otherwise they blended to much into the background. I used a sentiment from the set and this one is ready to go. Maybe not to a kiddo but it is ready to go 🙂

Do you make Valentines? If so, I hope these inspire you!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year my friend!
