This weekend, between demolition of my brother's kitchen and painting his man cave, we made several trips to Home Depot and Lowes. I remembered an idea I had seen in various outlets online, and decided to pick up a few freebie paint samples to make some quick Valentines. I took my Alphabet stamp kit (last seen here) and used them to make cute cards for my loved ones. Here's the quick project:
Pick out the letters that you will be using. I decided on Xs's and O's to keep things simple, and I LOVE U for my husband's card.
At Home Depot and Lowes, I found some great paint swatches with shades of pink and red that worked perfect for the cards.
Just stamp on the letters or message. I really liked that the 3 colors made three great lines for wording. Since the paint swatches have a semi-gloss finish on them, I recommend letting the ink dry for a while before you put them on envelopes or hand them out. They tend to smear. You could also take a hair dryer to them if you need them in a jiffy.
Here are the completed cards:
