Simply Valentines

Here is a simple Valentine's Day card for you!
White on white which I always love with a hint of color.  I used the Cuttlebug hearts embossing folder and then a tiny heart stamp from the Hearts2DieFor stamp set from the Stamps of Life.  I embossed the little stamp with some white embossing powder and then I used Glossy Accents over the top.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

I keep meaning to tell you my tip about Glossy Accents which I just happened upon by accident.  My tip would always clog up and I would use a straight pin or needle to unplug it.  Well, one time I accidentally left the straight pin in it.  And it wasn't clogged.  And since there is some gooey Glossy Accents in the top when I unscrew the cap the straight pin usually stays with the top.  I have used over a half a bottle of Glossy Accents and it still is flowing freely and I've never had to unplug it!  So keep a straight pin in your bottle.  It works!

Most inventions were probably by accident.  I wonder if I could patent this! LOL!

Anyway, here is my card:


  1. Like the white on white with pop of color. I have the embossing folder & may have to CASE this card with different heart punch & sentiment that I have. Thanks for tip on Glossy Accents and pin. I keep a safety pin attached to my pkg of red tape and use it but will now get a pin & put it into my Glossy Accents bottle.

  2. This is beautiful, Susan! What an elegant CAS card! LOVE that hearts embossed background and the pop of red! (:

  3. I know the straight pin trick. We use it with glues. Sometimes it sticks permanently in the glue, but it usually works. Tone on tone - love it!!!
