Dreamy Valentine


I made this card with the new Dream A Little stamp set from the Spring 09 catalog. This set is a Level 3 stamp set and I just LOVE it!! (If you can’t already tell since I have been using it a lot lately) The cardstock is from Paper 24/7 (the dark pink) and SU (pink pirouette). The card measures 4.25X5,5 and that standard card makes the perfect sized card to place the Top Note die cut on!

I used the Rock and Roll technique for the hummingbird. The rock and roll technique is used to make two toned stamped images.

1. Get out two ink pads. Pick out two shades of the same color. I used a dark blue (SU Pacific Point) and a light blue (SU Baja Breeze).
2. Ink the entire stamp using the lighter color ink.
3. Lightly ink the edges of the stamped image with the darker color ink as desired (you can do all the way around the image, just some edges, stamp just two sides to make the image look striped).
4. Stamp!

  1. I love the clean look of this card. That hummingbird is precious, I love hummingbirds! The others posters are so right, rock n roll is a great technique, but I hardly ever remember to use it. Love that you used the Top Note on this.

  2. LOVELY card! Love the colros that you used! What a great set!! I have always wanted to try the rocknroll technique – it is such a beautiful effect!!!

    best wishes,
    Sankari 🙂
