Groovy Kind of Love Valentine

Groovy L ove Valentine



Our next card-giving holiday is Valentine’s Day, and it’s my favorite holiday for which to create cards.  This year, Stampin’ Up! has given us so many Valentine’s Day products, both in the new 2016 Occasions Catalog and in the larger Annual Catalog, I’m not sure I’ll be able to show them all!

  • For this card, I’m once again combining the old and the new.  Groovy Love is a – well – “groovy” stamp set in the Annual Catalog that coordinates with the Sweetheart Punch.  I love all the different images and sentiments in this one set – it could keep you busy for a long time!
  • In the Occasions Catalog, there is a paper stack called Have A Cuppa.  It goes with our tea suite and it is so adorable!  But I thought I’d wait until Mother’s Day to show all of the cuteness to this suite.  Looking through the papers, I noticed that there are several pieces with hearts, so it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day, too!  And as always, using Stampin’ Up! designer paper gives you a “no-brainer” color scheme for your card.  I just picked up the colors in the designer paper to use as my solids – Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate (although the designer paper is Basic Gray, but I wanted a lighter feel).
  • A really pretty new accent in the Occasions Catalog are the Botanical Gardens Jewels.  It’s a pretty silver flower with attached rhinestone in the center.  I’m going with the “flower power” idea on my groovy card!
  • It’s really fun to create custom-sized cards so that you’re not always locked into filling the standard space.  This card measures 3-1/2″ x 6″ so that I could take advantage of a longer, thinner card front.  And I can easily create the perfect-sized envelope using the Envelope Punch Board.  All I needed was an 8″ x 8″ piece of cardstock and the instructions on the board.  I like Multipurpose Adhesive to put my envelope together.  And while you’re making your envelope, you can use the Punch Board to round the corners on the designer paper – a two-in-one tool!

Groovy Love Valentine alone


  • Here’s a close-up photo so you can see the Botanical Garden Jewels accessory a little better.  They’re super easy to use – just adhere with a Glue Dot.  Pick up a container or two on your next order!

Bloomin’ Heart Love You

Bloomin Heart Valentine



 

Stampin’ Up! has really outdone themselves with the 2016 Occasions Catalog!  It’s going “live” to customers tomorrow, January 5th!  And my card features a couple of my top picks from our new publication – the Love Blossoms Suite, including a Bundle & Save 15% opportunity to purchase the Bloomin’ Love photopolymer stamp set and the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Dies.

  • You’re going to just love the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper – so, so pretty!  I’ve cut it out using the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit Die with the Big Shot.  The Precision Base Plate and a new product – the Die Brush – will make it super simple to get your glimmer paper heart out of the thinlit frame.
  • I really like combining existing merchandise with new products to give a fresh look.  This background is the Happy Heart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Big Shot.
  • In the Bloomin’ Love stamp set, you’ll receive this pretty banner frame along with 4 different sentiments that fit inside – perfect for sending love to anyone in your life!  There’s a coordinating banner framelit in the Large Numbers Framelits Dies, or you can snip by hand using your Paper Snips.  Be sure to pop it up on Dimensionals!
  • A pretty little Black Satin Ribbon bow is all the accessorizing you’ll need!

Be My Valentine

The Twitterpated Product Suite in the Occasions Mini is one of my most favorite product lines ever!  Here I began by choosing the pretty floral print I wanted to use then building colors around it.  Base of the card is Whisper White, followed by Blushing Bride card stock.  Next I layered the designer paper and Island Indigo pieces.  Finally is Baja Breeze card stock run through the Big Shot with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  The cupid image is heat embossed with Versa Mark and Silver Embossing Powder, punched out with the Extra-Large Oval Punch and placed inside a frame created with Pear Pizzazz card stock and the Designer Frames Embossing Folder.  Accents are Twitterpated Designer Button and Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon.  Even though it's technically Riding Hood Red in the designer paper, the Cherry Cobbler looked perfect with this card.

XO-llent!

Here's another card using the Twitterpated Product Suite from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I began with a Whisper White card base, then added some Basic Gray that's been run through the Big Shot with the Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Next comes some layering with Pear Pizzazz and a piece of the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper.  The main image is bordered with Real Red and stamped in Basic Gray ink.  I stamped again in Real Red, cut out the "XO" and popped it over the gray with a Dimensional.  The larger stamped heart (and the sentiment) are from PS I Love You, the "must have" stamp for Valentine's Day.  It's punched out with the Full Heart Punch, but one of the hearts from the Framelis Dies Hearts Collection is the exact same size.  So if you don't already own the punch, you may want to consider more bang for your buck and purchase the Framelits.  The three smaller hearts come from the new Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die – this little tool both embosses and cuts out 5 different hearts!  Love it!

MDS Valentine

I'm pretty excited to be using My Digital Studio more!  I love what you can create mixing both traditional and digital card making.  Here I've used the MDS download called My Cute Valentine Printables Designer Template to print out the main heart image onto Whisper White Card stock.  Set includes 4 different hearts designed to coordinate with the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies.  I began creating my card using a Whisper White base, then Riding Hood Red, then a piece of Twitterpated Designer Paper, and finally the heart popped up on Dimensionals.  I added a Rhinestone and some Basic Gray Satin Ribbon for a pretty finish.  Hybrid card making is so fun!
