Hey friends, it’s Christy here with a sweet Valentine mashup using a mix of stamps including Autumn Days, Balloon Buddies, Bloom and Grow, and Carried Away. I colored all of the images to match some patterned paper, and hand-drew a floral pattern on the girl’s dress to bring her out of the Fall season and into Spring. Then I trimmed all of the images out with their coordinating dies.
For the background, I started by trimming down some Bristol Cardstock with one of the Nesting Deckle A2 dies. I did one panel for the sky, then cut the second one in half with the Grassy Knoll dies. Then I blended on Distress Oxide Inks, using Salvaged Patina with a cloud stencil for the sky, and Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the grass. I stamped a sentiment at the bottom and popped the focal panel up with foam tape over some layers of patterned paper. I finished off the card with some Stardust Stickles for a little sparkle.
If you’d like to see how this card came together, I’ve created a video tutorial for you. It’s also Day 11 of my 2024 Valentine Card Series, so I really hope that you enjoy it!

Sending you all lots of love and crafty hugs,
