Bright Hugs & Kisses - Stampin' Up! Country Bouquet

   Not a country floral in sight on this Valentine's day card!  I used the colors at Just Add Ink for this bright and bold hugs & kisses card using the Country Bouquet stamp set and punch. Orchid Oasis, Tahitian Tide and Polished Pink are a knockout combo I think!

  I used the challenge colors in nice big blocks to create a fun background for my shimmery X's and O's die cut with the Alphabet a la Mode dies.  I lined up the panels and then stamped across them using Versamark ink and the large open heart stamp in Country Bouquet.  I then mounted the colored panels on a piece of Basic Black for a nice contrast. 

  Next I cut 2 sets of X's and O's; one in retired Shimmer paper and one in foam adhesive sheets and put them together and adhered them to my card front.  They pop nicely against the background.

  I punched a few small hearts from Orchid Oasis glimmer paper and popped them on the card with dimensionals.  A few Tahitian Tide Matte Decorative dots finishes off the details.

   Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. Very cool card, perfect for Valentine's Day or any day to send some XOX love, liking it's not pink and red as let's be honest most men don't like pink!

  2. Using the Versamark for the back ground stamping is a great effect. A lovely card. Chantell Just Add Ink
