1. miss you card
For this card I dis some heat embossing using the Heart Garland background stamp and then did some ink blending on top. The embossed areas resist the ink and allows the stamp image to reveal. One of my favorite techniques, that never gets old and brings me so much joy to do! The miss you sentiment is nice and bold and I added a secondary sentiment from the sentiment strips to complete it.

2. like you card
For this card I stamped the heart garland with red ink to create the perfect Valentine’s Day background! I also created a window to stamp my sentiment inside. All the sentiments come from the Like you Words stamps set.
here is a closer look to this card
3. I love you card
For this card I stamped the background with white pigment ink and cut out 3 hearts in various sizes. I heat embossed my sentiments and here is a clean and simple card that is really easy to recreate. All the sentiments come from the Like you Words stamps set.

I really enjoy your cards. I recently got into card making as my daughters want to start a card making business. I’ve been trying to find the circle die cuts you used and I’m having a hard time. It’s so many to choose from on SS website. Could you send/post the link for those specifically? Also, do you have classes for us beginners?
