Saint Valentine 2022 | #1


Hello again! Today I'm bringing you the first Valentine's card 2022. This year I have chosen to move away from the conventional colors of this holiday and have opted for gold and white tones. The result: a fine, elegant card with a very clean and simple style. The magic touch may be provided by the foiling of the main stamps using Heidi Swapp's Toner Ink. In the video I show you how to prepare and apply it correctly. The result, as you can see, is more than acceptable; but, it definitely depends very much on the foil you use. The one I used for these butterflies is specifically indicated for the Minc, so the result is very good. I imagine the DecoFoil from Therm-o-web will do as well.


Here you are some links where to buy both the ink and the replacement pads:


For this occasion I have used the Beautiful Butterflies 1 stamp set by The Ton. For those who don't know it, this is a relatively young American brand that emerged in 2015 with very clean and fine designs. For me, they are spectacular. You have to see their floral designs, their multi-layer designs, their background designs... well, they have an endless number of things, and many more accessories besides stamps. Here is the link to their website so you can take a look. In addition, before processing the order, they already ask you for the extra money needed for customs fees, so there is no need to worry.


In addition to bringing these beautiful butterfly designs from different angles and sizes, the set of stamps that I have used for this card includes a separate inner stamp so you don't needx to color the inside of each butterfly. So, it is a set of stamps with a multi-layer plus, simple, but multi-layer indeed.


Below you can find the video of the creative process of this card, along with its twin, a post that I will upload tomorrow (you can go there by clicking here!). If you prefer, you can watch the video on my YouTube channel. Thanks for stopping by and see you tomorrow in the next post!
