Quick and Easy Valentines Cards.

Posted on 22 Jan 2018

The best quote I have came across lately must be this one…
“it’s not how you look, but how you see”
This applies so many things in life but none more true than in art and creativity.
For me seeing potential in something that may not be obvious. This was the case with the Chiswick Nifty Digits stamp set.
I love that little plus sign with its pattern. That was also the start for my card backgrounds – how I see them as something different and not just a plus sign but a pattern.

 I used pink and turquoise ink and simply stamped 3 different patterns onto backgrounds for my cards using this single stamp.
my first pattern was stamped totally random with pink, interlocking the lays sign into each other. Then I stamped the turquoise over the pink adding another layer and just overlapping the images.

My second background patterned was stamped onto book paper also randomly but leaving open spaces and adding a third coolur of ink.

My third pattern is stamped neatly in little rows using the 3 colours. Thta’s how easy it is to create different patterns using a single stamp.
1 stamp but 3 looks.

To finish off my cards i used heart stamps for the front of the cards making these quick and easy love themed cards perfect for the special people in your life.

Creating can be a wonderful journey and therapy making sense of things where life cannot, and I have tuned my life into this philosophy.
