Today I’m sharing some super simple cards that I’ve made for Valentine’s Day!

My love for Lawn Fawn stamps and dies is no secret – I just adore the designs, how clear they stamp and how versatile the sets are (it’s always fun to mix and match!).

For these two cards I have used the “How You Bean” stamp and matching shaker die set.

You can get them directly from Lawn Fawn here: https://www.lawnfawn.com
As an Aussie, I try to shop local where I can, and have found https://www.scrapdragon.com.au to be a fantastic stockist for Lawn Fawn products in Australia.

This card used a few other dies from Lawn Fawn (Everyday Sentiment Banners and Reverse Stitch Scalloped Circles – both super versatile and quickly becoming favourites in my stash!).

Both of these cards were super easy to put together and really didn’t need a lot of materials. If you’re interested in seeing the few steps it took to put them together, I’ve included some photos below.

I’ve noticed that I keep going back to this simple layout for cards! I think they look super neat and not too over the top with too many elements (which is something I’m often guilty of). Here are the first cards I made with this layout: https://www.whirledofpapercraft.com/2019/12/14/christmas-cards/

My husband got me some new Copics for Christmas – I’d been eyeing off this set for a while. This brings my total number of Copics to 12! I mostly stick to my very basic alcohol markers, but these are such a treat to work with!
I used 3 layers of craft foam for the shaker to ensure there was enough room for everything to move around.

For the items and shaker elements in this jar, I use the adorable How You Bean Conversation Heart add-on stamp set. This is my FAVOURITE of all the add-ons for this stamp set!

This particular craft foam had sticky backing, so I only needed a small amount of glue for the top when sticking down the acetate.
Once the acetate was glued, it was just a matter of sticking the top, stamped image of the jar on as the final layer.
I kept the background simple for this one, sticking to the pastel colour scheme. The hearts are quite subtle with this design as I used the same ink to stamp solid hearts as I did for blending my background. These oxide inks are just amazing to work with!
The final result! This card is my favourite of the two! I just LOVE the way the colours came together.

Which card is your favourite of the two?

Do you have any plans to make Valentine’s crafts? I have a whole list with about 9 more crafts I would love to do, but I think this baby has different ideas and might not give me quite that much time!
