Happy Valentine’s Day

Welcome to this month’s Inkin’ Krew “Share The Love” Blog Hop.  This month our theme is “Share the Love.”  Well, of course, it being February 14th, I had to make a Valentine’s Day card.

My card starts off with Real Red cardstock as its base which I layered with a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut out the 3D hearts from the Love Notes Framelits which I then stamped in Real Red Ink and the solid heart from the Sealed with Love stamp set.

I stamped the different stamped images in Real Red ink and added the wooden heart from the Sending Love embellishments.

Lastly I created two envelopes and love notes using the diecuts from the Love Notes Framelits, the Sealed with Love Stamp Set, and the Sending Love DSP.  I used a Real Red enamel dot to seal the one envelope.

Enjoy!

Sealed With Love Valentine’s Day

Today’s card is a quick CAS (clean and simple) Valentine’s Day card.  The Sealed with Love Bundle makes creating a sweet Valentine’s Day card super easy using the different hearts and details.

I used Real Red cardstock as the base to my card which I layered with Whisper White cardstock.

sealed-with-love-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

Starting from the bottom up, I stamped the “smudge” from the Sealed with Love Stamp Set and a row of hearts on the Whisper White at the top and bottom.  I then cut out the Real Red heart to place over that.  I colored a Sending Love heart embellishment in red using a Real Red Marker and tied a silver bow around it using Silver Thread.

sealed-with-love-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I then heat embossed the sentiment using Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder on Real Red cardstock and cut it out and layered it using the Layering Circles Famelits.  Lastly, I stamped the “Love You Lots” in Real Red on Whisper White and cut the end in a banner.

Enjoy!

My card today was inspired by the challenge over at Paper Craft Crew.

I Love You Card

My card today uses a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

I was inspired by this week’s challenge over at Global Design Project.  What inspired me the most was the neutral color pallet with a small pop of color.

gdp072

My card starts with Sahara Sand cardstock as its base.  I cut a smaller piece of Sahara Sand cardstock, dry embossed it using the Falling Petals embossing folder, and matted it on Very Vanilla cardstock.

falling-petals-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

The sentiment comes from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set which I stamped in Melon Mambo ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  I then stamped the hearts from the Weather Together stamp set in Sahara Sand all around it and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I cut out an arrow from the Love Notes Framelits in Melon Mambo cardstock.  In order for it to fit behind the sentiment, I cut it in half and then adhered it behind the square.

falling-petals-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I placed a strip of Very Vanilla Lace Trim along the bottom and placed a Lace Doily (Very Vanilla side up0 in the corner.  I adhered the square sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Lastly, I added a Falling in Love embellishment to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Handmade Valentines

I happened upon a blog the other day (see it here) and I loved the idea of making homemade Valentine’s using different stamps that have “punny” sentiments.  It really inspired me to look at all my stamp sets and see what I could come up with.

I created 5 Valentine Cards in total.

  1. The first one uses the Lift Me Up stamp set and Marina Mist and Watermelon Wonder colors.

valentine-2-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

2.  The second one uses the Jar of Love stamp set and Memento Block and Daffodil Delight colors.

valentine-3-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

3.  The third and fifth ones (didn’t get a pic of this one, oops) use the Cool Treats stamp set and Melon Mambo and Crumb Cake colors and Tempting Turquoise and Crumb Cake colors.

valentine-4-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

4.  The fourth one uses the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and Memento Black and Daffodil Delight colors.

valentine-1-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

5.  The sixth one (the egg) uses the Hey, Chick stamp set and Pumpkin Pie, Memento Black, and Smoky Slate colors.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the handmade Valentines I’ve created.

Enjoy!

Did you notice anything new about our blog hop today?  Yay, we got a makeover!

This week we have a color challenge for you.

15781189_10211887760337710_4896637352793540930_n

My card today uses Real Red cardstock as its base on which I layered some Whisper White over Gold Foil Sheet.

valentines-day-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I used the “love” from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits to cut out a bunch of Real Red and one Gold sentiments.  I adhered them to the Whisper White, cutting off any part of the word that went past the edge.

valentines-day-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

I cut out one Gold heart and arrow from the Love Notes Framelits which I adhered using a dimensional.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Sending Love

Today I’m bringing you one of the cards we’ll be making at my Stamp Party this coming Thursday.  We’ll be make four Valentine’s cards in total.  When I created them, I wanted to keep in mind that they’ll be given to husbands, friends, and kids.

This card starts off with Real Red cardstock as its base which I layered with two Whisper White pieces of cardstock.

sending-love-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I then created an assortment of both stamped and cut out images to place horizontally across the card.  What makes this card so easy to replicate is that it uses so few items which can be rearranged in any number of ways.

sending-love-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

The stamps and cutouts come from the Sealed with Love Bundle.  This bundle is great not just because of the sweet stamped images, but also because of the 3D cutouts that come in the coordinating Love Notes Framelits.

Enjoy!

Sealed With Love Bundle

For my card today I wanted to use the Sealed with Love Bundle, but particularly the vertical heart framelit included in the Love Notes Framelits.

My card uses Flirty Flamingo as its base.  I layered it with some Pink Pirouette of which I cut the side using the long heart framelit.  On the Pink Pirouette I layered some Whisper White cardstock on which I stamped two heart stamps from the Sealed with Love Stamp Set in Flirty Flamingo and Pink Pirouette.

sealed-with-love-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie

I then layered a piece of Whisper White on Flirty Flamingo and stamped the sentiment, Hello Love, in Flirty Flamingo on it.

sealed-with-love-stamp-it-up-with-jaimie-stampin-up

Around the sentiment I stamp and cut out a variety of hearts, an arrow, and adhered one of the Sending Love Embellishments.

Enjoy!
