Create a Valentines Card with a Paper Airplane Theme

Hello everyone! Today, I have a fun and creative stamping technique that you can use with all your clear stamps with symmetric form. This month we have prepared Valentine’s projects and of course, we are using the red color to enhance our passion for the inks.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour


Step 1

To create this project, I am using the Pink Shimmer Delicata inkpad and Glamorous VersaFine Clair in combination with both sides of one single stamp from the stamp set Life’s a Breeze from Joy Clair. Yes, you read well – to create my card I used both sides of the stamp. Let me share it with you.

Step 2

First, I positioned the paper airplane stamp over the acrylic block. I adhered the stamping side over the block and let the backside be inked with the Delicata ink in Pink Shimmer. Then I stamped randomly the image over a piece of whisper white card stock, cleaned the stamp thoroughly and let the ink dry naturally. I love to use the Pink Shimmer Delicata Ink – the color is soft and shiny at the same time.

Step 3

When the ink was totally dry I turned the same paper airplane stamp in the normal way and inked it with VersaFine Clair Glamorous Ink. Like I used a symmetric image, stamp the image in the normal way was easy.

Step 4

After stamping all the comets, I covered the entire layer with Clear Embossing Powder and melted with the heat tool. Then I resized the layer and pasted over the red card base using dimensional or double-sided foam tape. To resize the image, I used a stitched rectangle die cut from Gina Marie Designs. Set the entire piece aside for a while.

Step 5

To decorate the background, take a piece of cardstock in any color and ink it directly with VersaFine Clair Glamorous inkpad. Cover the entire piece with Clear Embossing Powder and activate the powder with the heat tool.

Step 6

Take the embossed piece and cut with the dies that you want to use. On this card, I am using the new I Love You Shadow dies from Kat Scrappiness. These dies come with a mat and I cut them from a pink piece of card stock, pasted the layer with On Point Glue and then paste the letters over the decorated card base using dimensional or double-sided foam tape. This is a creative technique that you can explore with different types of stamps. The result is always different and if you mix and match the colors of ink you will love the effect.
