Need a quick classroom craft for next week? A valentine idea for your kids to make at home? Here’s a sweet (ha!) one that doesn’t take much time. It uses the Cross My Heart stamp set (see it online) that I shared yesterday for the birthday card.
Just trim out a doily heart from the More Amore Designer Series Paper (see the paper online – 129309) and punch another heart from the paper to layer. Attach your finished pieces to a flat lollipop and tie a ribbon!
Stamping Tips & Tricks to remember:
- Use your Stampin’ Write Markers (the broad tip) to color directly on a stamp in several different colors for a multi-color image like on the crossword puzzle. (see the Stampin’ Write Markers online)
- With Stampin’ Write Markers, color the lighter colors first and don’t worry about detail. Use a darker marker next and color over anything you want to be darker. The dark color will cover up the lighter ink just fine.
- For a tiny stamped image that you want to punch out (like the elephant), remember to stamp first, then punch. It’s easy to use the Stampin’ Up! punches upside down so you can see through the window and center your image. (see punch selection online)
