Cute Valentine’s Day Card Featuring Waffle Flower Stamps

Hello friends. This cute little card features musical bugs from the Waffle Flower Rock On Stampset as well as Simon Says Stamp Grid Play Alphas Set (no longer available) and cute Valentine’s Day pattern paper (all which came in the Crafty Parcel I purchased from Simon Says Stamp). If you haven’t tried the crafty parcel from Simon, you should give it a try once. I received lots of unexpected supplies I wouldn’t normally purchase for myself but was happy to try.

For this card I began by cutting a piece of Stampin’ Up! Real Red 8 1/2 x 11” Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″and scored at 4-1/4″. Then cut a piece of the hearts pattern paper (from Valentine’s Day paper included in the Crafty Parcel) to 3-5/8H x 4”W (left side) and 2”H x 4”W (right side), creating a diagonal cut and grid pattern paper (from the same paper pad) to 1-7/16 x 4” (left side) and 3-5/16 x 4” (right side) and adhered them to the card panel using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. Then added some Love From Lizi Red Glitter Peel-offs where the two pieces meet.

I stamped 3 of the musical bugs from the Waffle Flower Rock On Stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them using COPIC markers. I used the following colors:

  • Bugs = C3 and C7
  • Accordian = E000 and E40; E37 and E29
  • Wings = BG000 and Blender 0
  • Horn = Y13 and Y18
  • Drum = R17 and R27; R81 and R85

I fussycut the images out and then moved onto the sentiment. I stamped the letters L-O-V-E from the Simon Says Stamp Grid Play Alphas Set (no longer available) onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Catherine Pooler Rockin’ Red Ink and fussycut the letters. Then I stamped “you are my #1 pick” from Waffle Flower Rock On Stampset onto a piece of Simon Says Stamp Card Stock 100# BLACK using Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder. I cut it down to 1/2 x 2″.

Closeup

I adhered the little bugs onto the card using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue for the middle one and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the two others. I adhered the LOVE sentiment towards the top of the card using 3M Foam Tape and the sentiment strip directly to the card using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. I finished it off by adding some of the musical notes from the Waffle Flower Rock On Stampset with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

On the inside of the card I cut a piece of Neenah 80lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4 x 5-1/4” and added a strip of the hearts pattern paper, measuring 3/4 x 4-1/4″, to the bottom of the panel and adhered that panel to the inside of the card. I stamped the “Happy Valentine’s Day” sentiment from the How you bean? conversation heart add-on and some little hearts from the Waffle Flower Rock On Stampset using Catherine Pooler Rockin’ Red Ink as well as some music notes from the same stampset. And that completes the card.
