Hello Friends! Katy here and I am so excited to be joining the Maker Forte Design Team.

For todays project I thought it would be fun to show you how to create some simple Valentine cards using the Watercolor Hearts Background stamp set from Maker Forte and The Hedgehog Hollow.

Listed below is a video tutorial with how I created the backgrounds. Each of the cards I made will be listed below the video with the products used to create, but be sure and watch the video to see how they come together.

TipTree Jam Thinking of You

I do want to mention that even though hot pressed watercolor paper is very smooth it still has a texture to it and as you can see in the up-close photos it seems as though the images were not stamped solidly.

Rest assured these Color Hive Inks are wonderful, they are very vibrant and saturate regular card stock beautifully. In the video I give a quick tip on stamping with these inks on watercolor paper and I hope it helps you when stamping on all textured card stock and paper.

Leave me a comment below and let me know some of the fun ways you like to use our Color Hive inks.

I hope this inspires you to break out your dye inks and give this technique a try.
