Love Punches - Stampin' Up! Festive Post

   It's always a shame when a stamp set from the Holiday Mini catalog has some images that are meant for Valentine's Day.  I feel that those images get shorted when it comes to being used since all the focus is on fall and winter themes and then the new mini comes out and all the attention is on the newer products.  I know I don't start thinking about 'love' and 'hearts' until about mid-January and by then the stamp set is no longer available (usually).  That's the case with the Festive Post set.  I hadn't used the 'love' stamp until this card.

  This card ended up being a mix of older current, retired, and new products.  The base is Blushing Bride with a panel of fun little heart print from the Snail Mail DSP.  

  The Heartfelt heart is stamped in Blushing Bride on Blushing Bride cardstock then punched with the scalloped heart punch.

  Next I punched a Rectangular Postage Stamp out of the Old Olive dotted pattern in the Ice Cream Corner DSP and layered that under the heart.  A sweet little baker's twine bow anchors the punch grouping.

  And finally the main image from Festive Post from the Holiday mini that ended last month.  I used markers in Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive to color in the 2 stamps that make up this detailed image.  The love and floral bits are separate and when you 2 step stamp them makes for a pretty postage stamp.  I popped this last punch up with dimensionals and then added a white enamel dot to the heart for the final detail.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
