Stamp Simply Vintage Valentine Kit

Today I have a Vintage Valentine Kit to show you that I put together using a product I have long loved — Cotton Scraps by Crafty Secrets.  Unfortunately, these Cotton Scraps are no longer being manufactured, so when they are gone, they’re gone.  They were a produt that I’ve used over and over and over again over the years and how I wish they were still available.  My supply is limted, and once sold out there will be no more of this kit.

First let me show you a card I made this morning using the Vintage Valentine Kit contents:

This card is 6.5″ x 4.75″, made that size so it fits perfectly into an A6 Clear Box.  This card has a fair bit of dimension, so inserting it into the Clear Box protects it, makes a wonderful presentation and is also mailable.  There is just something about giving someone a card in a Clear Box.  They  just love it and it always evokes a lot of WOW’s!

All designer paper used is from the Blush 6×6 pad by My Minds Eye.

All coordinates to the Blush pad can be seen here.

MME makes a lot of pads great for vintage themes and they can all be seen here.

My Cotton Scrap image was cut with pinking shears and it’s hard to see, but it is layered catty-wampus style onto 2 other sheets of designer paper.

The bow is of the 1/2″ Wrinkled Ribbon, adorned with Fairytale Roses.

The bow was made on the Original Bow Easy.

When I made my bow, I left long tails and then just twined them around until they looked right, adhering in inconspicuous spots with glue dots.

3D Foam Squares were used for elevation.

The valentine sentiment is included in the Happy Everything Tag Making Kit by JustRite (currently on sale).  It’s an all-inclusive kit with a large variety of sentiments, the clear stampers and dies.  It’s one of those sets I use over and over.  The other Mini Sentiments made to coordinate can be seen here.

My sentiment was stamped onto a 1/2″ strip of paper and the ends were hand cut with scissors.

Versa Fine Onyx Black Ink was used.

These are the Sheer Rosettes — love the fun vintage/glamorous touch they add.  They are adhered with Scor Tape and there is a strip of 5/8″ Crochet Lace peeking out of the top.
