Language of Love, FMS118

Happy Monday morning, Stampers! Valentine's Day is not too far away and I make lots of cards for the holiday. I was looking through my collection of current stamp sets and realized I have quite a few that are suitable for Valentine's Day! Shocker! I thought I would highlite some of them this week, so I guess this will be Valentine's Week at Stamp with Sandy!

I used two stamp sets for this card. I love the heart stamp from the new Language of Love Stamp Set. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set. I wanted this to be a more masculine kind of Valentine, so I used the classic black-red-vanilla color combo, with the emphasis on black.

I love this awesome, CAS layout by Jen from Freshly Made Sketches. It was perfect for my masculine Valentine.

I thought the More Amore paper complemented the words in the heart perfectly. It's an MDS (My Digital Studio) download. I'm not very good at all with MDS, and one of my goals this year is to learn to use it a little better. So in the coming months you'll be seeing more projects featuring MDS. I hope! I couldn't resist using one little retired brad, because it matched the paper so perfectly.
