Pretty in Pink Handmade Valentine Card Ideas

Shades of pink paired with black, white and kraft are a fun color combination for Valentine cards this year! Today let's look at two ideas that you can create with this fun color combo, along with the adorable Valentine Hearts stamp set from Impression Obsession

One of my favorite techniques on kraft colored cardstock is adding white colored pencil and/or white gel pen. Just some little details and shading add a fun POP to darker cardstock colors. It also helps brighten up the kraft so it doesn't feel dingy or dull for a cheerful Valentine card. On today's cards I used both colored pencil and gel pen to add some highlights and finishing touches to the designs. It's a little doodling, and a little coloring that makes a big bright impact!
I love love love the heart background on this card. I'm ALWAYS here for polka dots, so this heart jumped out at me BIG TIME! It was a simple way to create a fun background, and then all this card needed was a a few layers to balance out the pattern and keep the focal point on the sweet sentiment. 
I love the way the Jumbo Pinked Sentiment Banners can be a landing place for a stamped sentiment, but they can also be used as a design element, as I did on both of today's cards.
