Valentine Share: Nuts & Bolts

RR Nuts n Bolts (6)

A little Valentine love for the little's. Are you still making last minuet Valentines? I am! lol This week went off the rails here. Unplanned work deadline sprung up on us, nasty blizzard, 3-4" of snow dumped on us, temps plunged into -25 but felt like -36, I received my 4th Covid Shot and with my Rheumatoid Arthritis I have a different reaction then most people I ended up very sick for a few days but hey whatever it takes to keep me protected from having worse things happen, and the really sad part a good friend who is in her mid-40's discovered she has a rare cancer ughh it was discovered by pure luck too. So, people get yourself checked go to those eye doctor, dentist and year appointments. Like I said it was a banner of a week that really went off the rails.

Nuts & Bolts

For the nephews cards I used the Nuts & Bolts Cling Stamp Set item #157650 from the January - June 2022 Mini Catalog on page 13. The adorable imagery and sentiments of this Nuts & Bolts Stamp Set will make anyone feel loved and appreciated. The playful artwork and cheerful sentiments will add a perfect touch to your handmade cards and crafts. And while it may be a great stamp set for Valentine's Day, you can also use it to show loved ones how much they mean to you all year long! This set also offers some great versatility: The robot images can be combined on a card or used individually on a tag, while the open line-art images allow you to customize the look with different coloring techniques.

* 9 cling stamps
* Suggested clear blocks (sold separately): a, b, c, d

I saw several other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators make the bots look like rusted metal. Genius and adorable idea! Below is the FREE Tutorial on how to make this card.

I most of the time like to dress up the inside of my card as well + it is a great way to use up those scraps of designer series paper around too!

Cut the following pieces of card stock:

  • Cajun Craze 4 x 5 1/4
  • Basic White 3 3/4 x 5
  • Pattern Party Designer Series Paper 1/2 x 2 1/2

Adhere all the layers together as shown with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhere to the inside of the card base.
