Sunday Stamps #274

Hello, crafty friends. Today I have an adorably fun Valentine creation to share with you using the Nuts & Bolts stamp set.

I have to admit that I am a sucker for holiday themed stamp sets so this set was on my "A" list.  I mean, who doesn't love (and remember) all the Valentines we traded at grade school, right?  I loved opening them up to see who it was from and what Valentine they chose for me. Remember those days? lol

The Nuts & Bolts stamp set is great stamp set for Valentines Day projects but can also be used for birthdays.  I love these sentiments!!

For today's creation, I chose the cute robot holding a heart.  I think all three are cute, but the robot with the heart is extra cute. :)
After stamping him using Memento Black ink, I colored him using Smoky Slate and Real Red Stampin' Blends and then hand cut him out.  Next, I stamped a partial image of him (focusing on the heart area) and stamped a few more hearts on a piece of scrap paper and colored them with a Real Red Stampin' Blend. Finally, I hand cut these hearts out.

After adhering my second heart onto my robot, I added some Shimmery Crystal Effects over the heart to make it more festive.
My robot, remaining hearts and sentiment were added to my completed card front using Dimensionals.

My card design follows this weeks new sketch challenge at Sunday Stamps! by me!
