Valentine's Day Inspiration - Blog Hop

Hi there

 It is only 2 weeks until Valentine’s Day, so the ‘Art with Heart’ team are giving you a load of Valentine inspiration with the first of what will be a monthly Blog Hop on the last day of the month. The Art with Heart team lead by Claire Daly, is a group of more than 80 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from across Australia. If you would like to be part of this supportive group of talented paper crafters email me for more details. 

You may have come from  Di Dunk’s blog, but if not, you can join the Blog Hop from here by clicking on the link to the next blog at the bottom of this post.  We hope you will visit each of the 12 blogs to see the wonderful creations we have to show you! If you leave a comment on every blog and then email Nikki at, your name will be put into the hat to win some beautiful Blog Candy. You have until 6am ESST on 3 February 2010 to leave your comments and only those who are not Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators are eligible to win the Blog Candy. Now settle in for the ride and be inspired to make something special for your Valentine this year.

The card I have for you is simple but vibrant using black, white and red card stock with the heart image from the Always stamp set. The heart has been embossed white on Basic Black card stock and then embossed black on Whisper White card stock and cut out. The white heart has been popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals. The jumbo pewter eyelets were set with the fabulous Cropadile. The sentiments are from the Chit Chat Rub-ons currently in the Summer Mini catalogue. If you would like to order any Stampin’ Up! products to create this project, please contact me. Here it is with the full details below.
