Runsational Valentines Card

For today’s project, I’m creating this cute “Runsational” Valentine’s Day Card using the Runsational Stamp Set from Colorado Craft Company.

I’ve been wanting this stamp set for quite a while, and finally got around to getting it. 

I have quite a few insane runners in my life.  And I’m sure that you do too… although you may not have it as bad as I do.  My hubby is not only a runner, but an Ironman triathlete as well.  While I’ll probably never get to a point that I can do a triathlon, I’m trying to get healthier and more fit, and hope that I can finally do another 5k race this year.

Anyway, this stamp is perfect for all of those insane people in your life. And I’m glad that I got it when I did.  It’s still available but being discontinued soon. 

I’m using my DIY Sticky Grid to hold my paper in place on my Tim holtz stamp platform while I stamp the running legs onto a scrap of white cardstock.

I did some simple coloring with my Spectrum Noir Markers.

With the coloring finished, I’ll start on the rest of the front panel. I’m using some scraps from a couple of pattern paper pages in the “Be My Valentine” paper pack that I’ve had in my stash since last year. I’ll be creating a striped panel using the Stripes 2 Die set from Simon Says Stamp. 

I’m cutting thin strips from one pattern, and thicker strips from a contrasting pattern.

Then I’ll create that background by adhering the strips down to a scrap sheet of paper that I’ve already added a double sided adhesive sheet from to.

Next I’ll cut a heart out of this panel.  

I’m using the Heart shaped Torn Edge Dies from Gemini Elements, but you could use any heart die that you have in your stash.  Just make sure that it’s about the right size so that the stamped and colored image shows through the Heart shaped opening in your front panel.
