Bloomin’ Love Valentine

Bloomin Love Valentine



We’ve all fallen in love with the Love Blossoms bundle in the Stampin’ Up! 2016 Occasions Catalog!  The Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Dies are delicate and detailed and oh, so pretty!  But let’s explore the pretty Bloomin’ Love stamp set a bit more!  For this card, I didn’t use the large heart thinlit, but I did use the two small flower thinlits that are also contained in the set.

  • Like so often, my color scheme comes from the Love Blossoms designer paper that is part of the Love Blossoms suite – Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake (I changed it to Sahara Sand), Garden Green, Rose Red and Whisper White. 
  • I’ve used a piece of that designer paper 2″ wide to set the stage.  Sahara Sand Lace borders the edge – use Fast Fuse Adhesive to hold the lace to the back of the designer paper.
  • The Garden Green tag gets its pretty topper from the Ornate Tag Topper Punch.
  • I stamped the heart image from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set in Garden Green ink on Whisper White cardstock.  There isn’t a framelit to cut this heart shape, so I just “fussy cut” around the image with my Paper Snips.
  • I added a bit of Sahara Sand Lace and White Baker’s Twine through the top.

  • Flowers are cut out using the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Dies in both Rose Red and Blushing Blossom cardstock.  They’re adhered at different levels using either SNAIL Adhesive or Dimensionals.
  • I added Pearl Jewels to each flower center.

Bloomin Love Valentine inside



  • No room for a sentiment on the front of the card, but that’s okay – you have the full inside of the card to say what you’d like!  And you can also dress it up with leftover designer paper to coordinate with the front.

Valentine’s Day Treat Fry Boxes

Valentine's Day fry boxes3

If you’re looking for a fun Valentine’s Day project, I’ve just completed lots of these.  They went together quickly and were easy using the Stampin’ Up! Fry Box Die and Big Shot.  Dress them up any way you like!  I used Pink Pirouette cardstock; you can get two boxes out of an 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of paper.

  • The Silver Glimmer Paper was punched out with the 2-1/2″ Punch, and you could also use the Circle Framelits. 
  • The sweet red heart is from a new baby stamp set in the Occasions Catalog called Little Sunshine.  I love when I can get multiple uses for my stamps!  The Sweetheart Punch lines up perfectly to cut the heart out.
  • The Heart Border Punch is great for a tiny heart like the little black one on my project.  I used a Mini Silver Brad to set it off.
  • “Happy Valentine’s Day” comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes, still one of my favorite stamp sets!

 

Valentine's Day fry boxes

  • Of course, I had to bring my container to the grocery store to get matching candies!  I found Valentine’s Day peanut M&M’s in the bulk department and filled the Stampin’ Up! 4″x6″ Cello Bags with them, then tied them up using Real Red Cotton Ribbon and some 1/8″ Silver Ribbon.

I love seeing a whole finished collection of these sweet containers.  They look so pretty!

Argh, it’s a Valentine’s Treasure

Valentine Treasure

The Hey Valentine stamp set by Stampin’ Up! is so cute!  Four fun images are this set.  If you missed it, I posted another card using a different image from this set HERE.

  • This set is all about coloring, and Stampin’ Up! has so many ways to color in images.  I really like the effect I get with an Aqua Painter and my stamp pads; I find I can control the shading the way I want it.  And since I already have the stamp pads for stamping images, it gives dual purpose to purchasing them.
  • I used the Heart Framelits to create my card.  The largest framelit cuts out the scalloped heart, while the second to the largest cuts out the card base.  Just fold a piece of Whisper White Cardstock in half and place the framelit with just a little of the fold below the framelit edge.  When you run it through the Big Shot, then the top will stay uncut and you’ll be able to have a heart-shaped card.
  • Since this makes an “odd-sized” card, I used my Envelope Punch Board to create a custom-sized envelope.  Just measure the size of your card and follow the sizing chart printed on the Punch Board.  Couldn’t be easier!

 

Valentine Treasure 3

  • Did you notice my little embellishments?  I used a strand of Pearls over the stamped pearls in the treasure chest, and the coins and buckles are colored in with Gold Encore Ink.
  • The three little hearts come from You Plus Me stamp set.

Love in a different color

LOVE

Here’s a stamp set you haven’t seen in the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog called Snuggles & Smooches.  That’s because it was added to the Stampin’ Up! offerings in December as a new photopolymer release.  Tap on the photo of this great stamp set below to view all of the images.  This set has so many elements and so many possibilities.  Here I’ve used 3 stamps from the 12-stamp set – the “love” and the two hearts.

  • How do you feel about a non-traditional color scheme for Valentine’s Day?  I was getting a bit tired with working with reds and pinks, so I thought I’d give this a try – Pear Pizzazz, Tempting Turquoise and Rich Razzleberry.
  • The Pear Pizzazz background banner is run through the Big Shot using the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder, new to the 2014-15 Annual Catalog back in July.   So pretty!
  • The large heart from the Snuggles & Smooches stamp set coordinates with the Sweetheart Punch for a quick punched image. I used my Paper Snips to snip out the small heart by hand.
  • I added a Tempting Turquoise Candy Dot from the Brights Collection.

Hello Love Valentine

Hello Love

Here’s a quick and easy card using just 2 punches and one stamp from Stampin’ Up!  It’s definitely a Valentine’s Day kinda card, but it could be used all year long.  Who wouldn’t like getting this card in any month!

Not sure where the “hello love” came from?  That’s because it’s from a retired hostess set called Good Greetings.  Here’s a photo of all the great sentiments contained in this one set.

Good Greetings

Since Good Greetings is retired, you can replace the sentiment with something else appropriate that you have.  But wait – I just happen to have an extra copy that’s never been used!  Leave a comment to this post and let me know which sentiment is your favorite from this set.  I’ll do a random drawing from the comments below.  Saturday, January 17th, is my birthday, and to celebrate I’ll choose a winner on that day.  I’ll announce the winner here on my blog, so be sure to leave a comment now then check back on the 17th to see if you’ve won!

Now on to telling you about my card.  Color scheme is Blackberry Bliss, Tangerine Tango and So Saffron – these colors work so well with each other, even though they aren’t in the same color collection!

  • Begin creating the circle heart images by using the heart punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  Punch into the cardstock then using the 1″ Circle Punch, punch around the heart.  It’s much easier in this order!
  • Save out one of the punched hearts and pop it up on a Dimensional next to the sentiment.
  • A little Tangerine Tango Baker’s Twine is all the accessory you need with this fun layout.

Enjoy creating your own card and have fun playing with different color schemes.  This is a non-traditional Valentine’s Day color combo and if you’d prefer, you can try it in pinks and reds, maybe with some black.

Hey, Valentine!

Hey Valentine

You’re going to love working with the sweet images in the new Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Hey, Valentine.  And today I’m also showing you two separate gifts you can receive during the biggest sale event of the year – Sale-A-Bration.  With each $50 you spend from now until the end of March, choose among fabulous free gifts in the new Sale-A-Bration brochure.  The two featured in this card are the Best Year Ever Designer Paper and the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack.  I used some of the three ribbons in the accessory pack, but you’ll also receive coordinating buttons.

A circle theme is a great one when there’s fish and bubbles involved!  The background of the card is Coastal Cabana cardstock run through the Big Shot using the Large Polka Dot embossing folder.  The designer paper has a circle pattern, and I even rounded the corners of the main image using the Envelope Punch Board.  Yep, best corner rounder ever – two for one use on this great tool!

Stampin’ Write Markers were used to color in this cute image.  Color scheme in the designer paper is Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Whisper White.  Don’t forget to use StazOn Black Ink to stamp your image when you want to do some coloring!

Be Mine, Valentine

Be Mine

I love a classic red, black and white look!  And that’s why I love the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack that’s in the new Stampin’ Up! 2015 Occasions Catalog.  There’s some Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe mixed in, too.  And true to form, Stampin’ Up! has designed the prints to coordinate with each other beautifully.

My other most favorite new-catalog product is the Sheltering Tree stamp set.  You’re going to get such a bang for your buck with this versatile stamp set!  It’s great for every season, and I even created a Valentine tree (with the help of the tiny hearts in You Plus Me stamp set).

I also used the “Be Mine” stamp from You Plus Me inside of a Real Red cardstock punch from Sweetheart Punch.

AND if you purchase the You Plus Me stamp set and Stacked With Love DSP as a bundle, you’ll save 15%!

Valentine’s Day chocolate holder

Valentines

Are you looking for one last idea for Valentine's Day?  Here's the perfect little chocolate gift decorated Stampin' Up! style!  Allyou need is the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.

  • Begin with card stock that measures 2" x 7-1/2".  Score at 3-5/8" and 3-7/8", so either side of center to make the gusset.
  • Then punch both ends of your card stock with the Topper Punch.  Decorate as you wish, or follow my design.
  • I love the sweet hearts from the Adorning Accents embossing folder.
  • I grabbed an oldie but goodie stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes for the sentiment.
  • You're going to LOVE embossing the Gold and Silver Foil Sheets!  Here I used the Fasionable Hearts Embosslits, but I'm thinking I'll be doing this a lot in the future with the embossing folders.
  • Chocolates are tied up with Pink Pirouette Taffeta Ribbon and Gold Baker's Twine.
  • Add a sweet little Vanilla Candy Dot to one of the hearts and you're done!

Here's a close-up of one of them:
