Valentine Stamps | Pop Art Cards

Hello! With Valentine’s Day only a few weeks away, Sharon Traynor is here with some fabulous inspiration featuring our gorgeous lips stamps and some romantic sentiments..

valentine cards | Lips stamp | sentiments

Hi there. I was browsing around the internet the other day when I came across a Pop Art image and I was immediately struck by how clean the lines were, how simple the images were and how the colours were bright and what I call ‘happy’.

Well, that little piece of art got me all fired up to make a card and the first image that popped into my mind was those gorgeous, luscious lips by Visible Image. Then I grabbed a couple of their stencils and set to work.

I firstly blended a couple of backgrounds, making sure the centre of each stencil was off centre, slightly below and to the left, so that they looked ‘right’ when the lips image was added. I did stamp the lips image directly onto these panels too, so that the splatters of lipstick were not omitted, because  I wanted to fussy cut the lips.

Then I stamped and heat embossed the lips onto scrap card using distress oxide inks for the first layer of stamping, plus a super-shiny clear gloss embossing powder. I used a stamping platform because I wanted a really fantastic shine, so these were heat embossed 3 times using clear ink for the subsequent stampings. Then I fussy cutting them out.

Just look at that shine!!!!

Next I stamped and heat embossed a couple of sentiments….

…. and drew a speech bubble in pencil around the sentiments before I cut those out too. The pencil lines can easily be erased with an eraser. I edged the speech bubbles with the corresponding distress marker for the colour of the lips.

Then I just added the panels onto card blanks and layered the lips and speech bubbles onto the panels.

There are LOADS of Visible Image images that would work well with this CAS and graphic type of treatment!
