Henry Says "Happy Valentine's Day !!"

Hey Stampers,

Happy Valentine's Day !! Hope you get to share this day with your loved ones. When my little boy woke up this morning, he had a little treat left by Cupid (aka Mommy & Daddy) and with it was this sweet card !! I knew I wanted to use the ADORABLE Henry Says stamp set, so perfect for a little boy or girl, for his Valentine this year ... and I am really pleased with how it turned out !! What do you think ??


Isn't that too sweet ?? My color combo of Baja Breeze, So Saffron and Riding Hood Red is great for a fun Valentine for a boy. This card uses a TON of products from the Spring Catalogue too !! First, I stamped Henry in Jet Black StazOn ink onto some Baja Breeze striped DSP from the Subtles Patterns DSP Stack. I also stamped the fun hearts image from the Confetti stamp set all over him, also in Baja Breeze ink. He got fussy cut out with my Paper Snips, so fun !! Then I stamped the cute hearts from the Henry Says stamp set in Riding Hood Red ink and punched them out with my Large Oval Punch. A piece of Whisper White measuring 3-3/4" x 5" was then ran through the Cloudy Day embossing folder, and I sponged the tops of the clouds with Baja Breeze ink to really make them pop. Love how that turned out !! A 1" strip of So Saffron polka dot DSP was torn across the top and then adhered to the layer, something for Henry to sit on (he was added with some dimensionals, along with the hearts coming out of his trunk). The So Saffron piece was adhered to the cloudy layer, then to a layer of Baja Breeze and this was all put on a Riding Hood Red card base. So easy !! 

My sentiment piece is from the That's The Ticket stamp set. I stamped the Valentine sentiment in Riding Hood Red, and then the plain ticket image in both Baja Breeze and So Saffron. I punched them all out with the Ticket Duo Punch, and suck them together using a Mini Silver Brad. Then I added it to my card using a dimensional. The fun button in the bottom corner is from the Silver Basics in the Spring Catalogue. There are 2 sizes, this is the bigger one. It is HUGE and so nice !! I tied a knot of the 1/8" Baja Breeze Taffeta Ribbon through the holes and added it with some Glue Dots. Cute !!

Well, thats my card for today !! My son really liked it, he thought the elephant was funny. Hahaha. I hope you like it too !! Thanks for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
