Valentine Love Bandit!

Need some quick and cute cards for Valentine giving?  Today's card is one that fits the bill.  It is bright and cheery as well as quick and cute!  I don't usually "do" cutesy but after having seen some cards made with the new Love Bandit set from the Occasions Mini Catalog, I thought it was something I could use not only for childrens' cards but also for other ages including "grown-ups" (do we ever really grow up? but I digress...).

I haven't used Creamy Caramel cardstock in quite a while but its a warm tan tone which looks so good with rich Real Red and it seems fitting for the image too.  Don't you just love this new I {love} Love Jumbo Wheel (Occasions Mini)  that is rolled across the bottom of the card in red?  The little raccoon was stamped in Basic Brown, colored with a Blender Pen, punched with the Scalloped Square punch then layered onto a square of Real Red.  Tie a length of Red and White Striped Grosgrain ribbon around the card and you're done!

There are lots of ways to kick this card up a notch or two or three, but this one is simple and quick, and gets the message to the recipient loud and clear... they are loved!  : )  Plus there are other stamps in the set that could be used more occasions besides Valentine cards.

Stamps:  Love Bandit, I {love} Love jumbo wheel
Inks:  Basic Brown, Real Red, Creamy Caramel
Paper:  Real Red, Whisper White, Creamy Caramel
Tools:  Jumbo wheel handle, Blender Pen, Scallop Square Punch, Red/White Striped Grosgrain

Thanks for coming by today.  Hope you have some fun stampin' this weekend!
