Valentine 3 Card Set with 3 Artwork Tips

3-card set made with the January Stamp of the Month (Adore You) in Raspberry, Pansy and Emerald

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and we are here to help you prepare with a $5 Valentine stamp set.  No kidding! Keep reading to find out how to get it.



How about if I first tell you how to get this beautiful set for only $5, then I give you some fun artwork tips for these cards?  Okey dokey!

This beautiful set (Adore You) is only available in January and is yours for only $5 ($12.95 savings) with every $50 you order (before shipping and tax). When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your $5 set(s) before checking out. Easy, peasy!

Now, on to more details and tips for these cards:

4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card, top fold with bottom corners rounded


1.  When stamping your rows of hearts, lay a piece of paper straight across the card.  Position your heart on your acrylic block and let the bottom tip of each heart stamp just above the edge of the paper.  This will give you your first row of hearts, and it will be nice and straight.

2.  For the second row, turn your stamp upside down and position the tip of each heart between the two hearts in the row above.  Repeat steps 1 and 2 again until you have filled the front of your card with hearts.


3.  When embossing, stamp in our clear Versamark Pad, sprinkle your White Embossing Powder on top. Shake off the excess.  You may still have a few little grains of powder sticking to your cardstock. For a nice crisp image, with no "embossing powder polka dots" scattered around  your image, be sure to use a tiny paint brush to carefully brush any of those little stragglers off. Even if the powder isn't sticking to the stamped image, if it's on your cardstock, it will emboss when you heat it.

I've included a list of all of the products I used on this card at the very end of this post, complete with photos and links for your convenience.

A set of cards like this is a great gift for a friend, or fun Valentines for you to hand out to those you love!

February Play Group Scrappin' and Card Makin' Classes (Sugar Rush)



The deadline to order your long-distance kits or sign up to attend February classes in person is Wednesday, February 18  by 10 pm MDT.  Just call or email me to sign up (801.360.9896, pedermom@aol.com).  Long distance kits will be shipped the first week of February.

We'll be making three 2-page 12" x 12"  layouts (Layout #3 has 2 fun pocket page inserts) using our fun Sugar Rush papers and matching accessories, as well as adding a 9 card option (3 each of 3 designs) to the layouts this month. 


  • To create all three layouts plus the pocket page inserts for Layout #3, all you need is the Basic Kit. 
  • If you want to add the 9 cards, and will be attending the class in person, you'll need to get all or part of the Better Kit  (just order the items from this kit you don't already have). If you are adding the cards and are participating long-distance, you'll need the Best Kit.
  • If you just want to make the cards, I've added that option as well. If you are attending the class in person, just order the Cards Only option. If you will be making them long-distance, order the Cards Only Option plus the stamp/thin cuts set in the Best Kit.
  • If you are participating long-distance and want to do both the layouts and the cards, you'll want to order all or part of the Best Kit (just order any items you don't already own).   
Please call or email me if you have any questions and I'm happy to answer them for you (801.360.9896, pedermom@aol.com).

February Dates and Times to Choose From:

  • Thursday evening, February 2 from 7-10 pm in Pleasant Grove, UT
  • Friday morning, February 3 from 10 am - 1 pm in American Fork, UT
After the layout and card photos, you'll find the shopping list.  In order to participate, you are only required to purchase the Basic Kit or the Cards Only kit, but you are more than welcome to buy the Better or Best Kits, or to pick and choose from some of those items to add to your Basic Kit.  You'll see the kit totals in the shopping list below. I've also included a products list, complete with photos and links, at the end of this post for your convenience.  Also, please go back and read the bolded paragraph above to be sure you understand which kits get you just the layouts, which kits get you just the cards, and which kits give you both.
