Love is pretty cool. Today’s card celebrates romantic love with a silhouette right out of an old movie. My card combines three colors and three stamps (two that are retiring soon) and mixes classic beauty with a modern twist. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Retiring Bundles. My card combines the romantic couple caught in the rain from the Silhouette Scenes. Maybe they’ve been under that umbrella for a while, and she’s sticking her foot out to see if it’s still raining? Either way, they are a beautiful image, don’t you think? The sentiment is from Last a Lifetime, another set that celebrates love. While the dies associated with these stamp sets are deeply discounted (and while supplies are still available), you can buy these bundles at a deep discount by buying the products separately (just add the stamp set and dies separately for a big savings): Want to see some more deeply discounted pairings?

- Flower Power. To create a romantic backdrop for the lovely couple, I stamped the Wild Flowers Background stamp from Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2021 Mini Catalog with Petal Pink ink on Petal Pink cardstock. I didn’t press too firmly to give the flowers a textured look in the background. Here’s a look at this stamp set: I then stamped the couple with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink over and over (using my Stamparatus for perfect placement) until I achieved the depth of ink I wanted. I cropped the couple with a Stitched Rectangles Die. Here’s a closer look:
- Sweet Color Combination. My card mixes different tones of Petal Pink and only two other neutrals – Gray Granite and Basic Black. Quite romantic, don’t you think? If you like this mix of Petal Pink, Gray Granite and Basic Black as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:
Stamp Sets: Silhouette Scenes, Last a Lifetime, Wild Roses Papers: Petal Pink, Gray Granite, Basic Black Inks: Petal Pink, Memento Tuxedo Black Accessories: Stitched Rectangles Dies, Stamparatus, Stampin’ Dimensionals
