BLOG HOP: Introducing "True Love" Stamp Set

Hi everyone!

It's time for another Blog Hop! Today we're featuring the all-new "True Love" stamp set.  This set comes with a ton of fun stamps that are good for more than just Valentine's Day.  You can use these for weddings, just because or a note for that special someone.  You can fill the frame with the sentiments that come with the set, or the butterflies, or pick some of your favorite sentiments from other sets and mix and match to your heart's content!  I didn't use the frame in these cards, but I plan to make more cards in the future with the frame.  It's great for any occasion.

If you came here from Jennifer's blog, then you're in the right place.  If you want to start the hop from the very beginning, click here.

This stamp set is so fun. I couldn't just make one card, so instead, I made two!  The first is inspired by yesterday's historic news in the US which has taken over social media, news outlets, and courthouses across the nation. #LOVEWINS.  I mean... who doesn't love rainbows and butterflies and love?

Card #1: Love Wins

The second card is a Flip-It card -- which shows a sentiment on the front and the butterflies on the back.  These Flip-It cards are so fun to make and the sentiments from this stamp set fit perfectly in the messaging area.
Card #2: Always You (Front)
Card #2: Always You (Inside)


  • Stamp the LOVE stamp on colic-friendly paper, color with Copic markers, add liquid pearls over the dots.  Let it dry
  • Die cut the stamp from the second largest tag.  You may need to do some partial cutting if you're using the My Favorite Things tag dies -- this makes the tag shorter.
  • Die cut a tag from the rainbow paper using the next largest die -- also partial cut the top so it's the right height.
  • Attached the LOVE tag to the rainbow tag and punch a hole at the top.  String some Baker's Twine through the hole.
  • Stamp two butterflies using Tuxedo Black Ink.  Color with pencils.  Attach to tag using glue dots.
  • Using the largest stitched rectangle, cut a card insert from white card stock.
  • Adhere this white insert to the front of the folded kraft card.
  • Attach the tag using foam adhesive, drape the twine around the edge.


  • Stamp the sentiment and butterflies and heart on white card stock using Versamark Ink
  • Heat emboss with Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder
  • Cut those out using the scalloped or pierced circles that come with the die set.
  • Die cut the card base (largest die) from the purple card stock
  • Die cut the two edges of the card (2nd and 3rd largest dies) out of patterned paper.
  • Glue the edges into place.
  • Adhere the ribbon down the center section using glue dots.
  • Layered the embossed pieces onto alternating scalloped or stitched circles.
  • Adhere these "tags" to the center circle using foam adhesive.

Yup, that's right -- we have PRIZES!  For your chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to, just leave a comment on each blog of the hop.

  1. AWESOME projects Christina! This is such a fun set - I LOVE your purple block letters on the tag, So perfect!

  2. The rainbows and butterflies card is a great card to celebrate the news. The flip-it card is really beautiful and looks like it took a lot of time to create.

    1. Aw, thanks for your feedback and comments. It's funny - the flip-it took less time to create. :-)

  3. The one that looks like a tag is great!!!


Look forward to your feedback and any fun ideas I should incorporate into my card designs. Or just say hello!
