Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Valentine’s Day Card

You made it to Friday – Yay!

Any fun plans this weekend?!
We’re still hibernating here in New York which is fine with me because that means lots of stamping in my future.

Before I begin with today’s card, the idea to stamp the hearts in a row is not my original idea and unfortunately I can’t remember who I saw it from.  I did a quick search on Pinterest but I can’t find the original card.  If it’s you, please let me know and I’ll be sure to mention you specifically.

My card starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock which I embossed using the Simple Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Stamparatus to stamp the heart from the Meant To Be Stamp Set first in Grapefruit Grove, then Lovely Lipstick, and then Blushing Bride across it.  Using the Stamparatus ensures that the images will be perfectly spaced out.

I then matted this on Grapefruit Grove/Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I adhered it down using Mini Dimensionals.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Love You To Pieces – HSS #307

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments’ challenge is an inspiration challenge.  I sure hope you’ll play along with us – it’s a fun one!

My card starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I then layered it with a pattern from the All My Love Designer Series.

I used the Be Mine Framelits to cut out three Whisper White scalloped hearts which I adhered one over the other.  I used the same framelit to cut out another pattern from the All My Love DSP to go inside the scalloped heart.

Before adhering the hearts down, I tied a Lovely Lipstick bow underneath them.

Lastly I used the Love You to Pieces Bundle to stamp the puzzle pieces in Lovely Lipstick ink and cut them out.  I adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimenionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Quick and Simple Valentine’s Day Cards

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Love.”

I decided to make super simple Valentine’s Day cards.

Stampin’ Up! has started a social media campaign using the hashtag #simplestamping.  I love this idea, as really clean and simple cards can be very classy…and easy to whip up.

The cards start off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock.

I then matted a pattern from the All My Love Designer Series Paper on Whisper White cardstock.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Lovely Lipstick ink on a diagonal.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Gold Vinyl Stickers Valentines’ Day Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

Glitter…glitter…glitter

If you love glitz, today’s card is for you!

Also, there is no stamping – None, zilch – crazy, right?!

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I then took a small panel of Whisper White cardstock and adhered a few Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers on it – Yes, the sentiments and hearts are stickers!

These stickers are great and there are a ton on each sheet!

I took the “love” panel and put it over another panel of Whisper White where it would go, marking it with a pencil.  (No sense in putting glitter in the spot that was going to be covered.)  I then used liquid glue to adhere a ton of Gold Glitter Flakes.

How I did the glitter flakes was I put some liquid glue on a scrap piece of paper.  I took another piece of scrap cardstock and picked up glue on the edge of it.  Then I lined up the edge with the glue to the line I drew previously and sort of wiped away from the line.  I then sprinkled it with the Gold Flakes.  I dabbed glue towards the top and bottom of the card to put smaller amounts of Gold Flakes.

I matted this Whisper White on a slightly larger Whisper White and adhered it to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Sure Do Love You Valentine’s Card

We are just a few weeks away from Valentine’s Day – are you all ready?

I’ve created a few cards, but realized I hadn’t created any traditional red cards.  I don’t even think I’ve used Real Red anything since Christmas.

So my card today starts off with Real Red cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the larger heart from the Sure Do Love You Stamp Set in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it with the heat tool.  I then matted the Whisper White cardstock on Gold Foil cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

I cut out a few Real Red hearts using the coordinating Lots to Love Box Framelits and adhered them around the larger heart.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sure Do Love You Stamp Set in Real Red ink and cut it out using the banner framelit from the Lots to Love Box Framelits.  I tied a Gold Ribbon to adhered underneath the sentiment using the Love Mini Tinsel Trim Ribbon.

Enjoy!

SPECIAL GIFT FROM ME!

Now through Thursday any order over $50 will receive a free gift from me.  The more you order, the bigger the gift!  Gifts will vary depending on your total order amount and will be personally selected by me just for you!

To give you an idea, an order of $50 will receive a gift worth about $15, an order of $100 will receive a gift worth about $30, an order of $150 will receive a gift worth about $45, etc., AND if you order $150 or greater you’ll also start earning Stampin’ Rewards from Stampin’ Up! too.

Don’t forget that you’ll also earn a free Sale-a-bration item with every order of $50 or greater on top of my free gift!

Stampin’ Up! “Love” Blog Hop – Watts of Occasions

This month’s Amy’s Inkin Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Love.”  Have fun hopping around and seeing how everyone interpreted this theme.

My card today starts off with Berry Burst cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Polka Dot Basics embossing folder.  I matted this on a slightly larger Whisper White panel and adhered it to the card front.

I then layered up a pattern from the Fresh Florals DSP, a banner of Emerald Envy cardstock, and the sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Watts of Occasions stamp set and was stamped in Emerald Envy ink on Whisper White cardstock.  (I’m a sucker for a good punny sentiment.)

Next I cut out an oval using the Stitched Shapes Framelits out of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  I stamped the light bulb from the Watts of Occasions stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I cut it out using Paper Snips and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I wound around a few times some Berry Burst ribbon and tied a Linen Thread knot around the middle to hold it in place and adhered it to the card using a small piece of Tear & Tape adhesive.

Enjoy!

My card today was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday challenge and the Paper Players challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Labels to Love Valentine’s Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop challenge is a sketch challenge.

My card starts off with Melon Mambo cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Labels to Love stamp set to stamp the “Love” all across it.  I stamped the first one in Flirty Flamingo ink where I knew the center of the heart would be and then in Melon Mambo ink in lines around it.  I matted the Whisper White cardstock on Gold Foil cardstock.

I took a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock and cut a heart out of it using the Lots to Love Box Framelits.  I adhered this over the Whisper White cardstock using Stampin’ Dimensionals and wrapped a bow around all of it using Flirty Flamingo Baker’s Twine.

I finished off the card by cutting out two hearts using the Lots to Love Box Framelits from Melon Mambo cardstock and Gold Foil cardstock to adhere to the card front.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Painted With Love Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

For today’s card I thought I’d pull out new product from the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  I’m really enjoying all the bright colors and new designs!

There’s nothing like new product!

My card today starts off with Melon Mambo cardstock.  I then took a panel of Rich Razzleberry cardstock, matted it on Whisper White cardstock, and adhered it to the card front.

Next I took a pattern from the NEW Painted with Love  Specialty DSP.  What makes this paper special is all the gold accents.  They add such a nice sparkle to the paper and I love the gold paired with these colors!  I matted this DSP on a panel of Gold Foil Sheet.

I cut out a label using the Everyday Label Punch and the Gold Foil Sheet.  I cut it in half and adhered each part opposite each other behind the DSP.

I stamped the heart in Melon Mambo ink on Whisper White cardstock from the NEW Sure Do Love You Stamp Set (isn’t that a great name!).  I stamped the sentiment banner in Rich Razzleberry Ink on Whisper White cardstock. I cut them both out with the coordinating NEW Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies (buy the bundle and save 10%).

Enjoy!

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.

img_0842

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

img_0843

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!
