The Essence of Love is Kindness
As soon as I saw this sentiment stamp I thought of my sister, Julia. She is the kindest most loving person I know. I knew I needed to make her a set of cards featuring this beautiful sentiment.
I used Stampin' Up! Blendabilities to color the flowers. Unfortunately, due to quality issues, the Blendabilities line of products has been discontinued. But no worries...Stampin' Write Markers are an excellent option for coloring.
The Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack is not just for Valentines. In fact, I have used it for every type of card except Valentine's Day. It has classic patterns in Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red, Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe.
While some of the double sided papers have a side perfect for those "lovey dovey" cards, the reverse side is great for any other type of card.
