Sliding Barn Door Valentine

January means a new year and a fresh start.  Many of us are heading back to the gym in full force, organizing and tackling DIY projects.  One of the projects my husband and I are working on is purchasing a sliding barn door for our bedroom.  These doors are one of the hottest home design trends.  So I was so excited to  see the Barn Door Bundle (Barn Door Stamp Set and Sliding Door Framelits Dies) in the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog!

Watch Stampin’ Up!’s Brandy Barnard in this video demonstration of how to use the Barn Door Bundle.  Purchase the bundle which includes the Barn Door Stamp Set and Sliding Door Framelits Dies and save 10% .

Sliding Barn Door Valentine Card

Stampin Up Barn Door Valentine cardThe cool detail is how the door slides left and right within the die cut grooves.  I created this barn door card front for this Valentine card.

I used #6 washers with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to slide the door.  However,  I’ve seen tutorials using dimes or pennies.

Monstermaniacs Valentine card

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is a color challenge and I was so excited to use the Monstermaniacs stamp set given to me by my upline Erin.  This was the first time I used this versatile stamp set.

Since Valentine’s day is coming up I created this card for the occasion. I used a blender pen to color the image of the monster and used Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to go over the spots on the monster.  This was a quick and easy card to make.

Happy Valentine’s day tag card

This week at Hand Stamped Stamped Sentiments we have a color challenge for you.  The colors of Cherry Cobbler, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mamboare perfect for Valentine’s day so I created this Valentine card with tag.  The kraft pocket is a holiday retired Stampin’ Up! product that I embossed with the Chevron embossing folder. The tag is created from Vanilla card  stock and embellished with the Cherry Cobbler Dotted Scallop ribbon.  It’s perfect for a Valentine message.  I would show it to you but it’s a surprise for someone special.

Sea of Love Valentine Card

How these days in January make me long for the beach.  I guess I shouldn’t complain since the weather here has been sunny and in the 70’s but I just can’t help thinking of long summer days at the beach.  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a beach theme but I still have Valentine’s day on the brain.  So when I began to think of what to create for this challenge I thought of the sea…love…Eureka!!…The Sea of Love!  So here’s my interpretation of this week’s beach theme challenge.

Sea of Love Fish Punch Art Valentine Card

I used the Lots of Love Letterpress plate for the background.  I inked it up with Versamark then ran it through the Big Shot and to add sparkle I heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  The sentiment is stamped in Indigo Blue and also heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.

I hope you can see how the Sea of Love  shimmers with the Iridescent Ice.  The fish are made with various Stampin’ Up! heart punches.  I couldn’t resist the wiggle eyes.  The sand is Crumb Cake card stock sponged with Soft Suede ink.  This card would be perfect to give to your hubby or wife.  Either way love is in the air or rather the sea.

I hope you’re inspired to join us this week with your beach themed creation.  Hop on over to HSS for more inspiration from our very talented design team.

Waterfall Valentine’s Day card

I did not want to post my Valentine card for my DH until the day because I did not want to spoil the surprise.  The card I created is a hybrid card made with My Digital Studio.  The glittery background is the Sending Love DSP and the waterfall panels were created on MDS.  I love this software.  Since my husband and I do not have children we do have furry ones.  We have two Bengal cats, Rocco and Franco aka Chummy and a Chihuahua named Chula.  I photographed our pets and shaped the photos as ovals or circles and put them on the Full Heart punch image printed and cut them out then adhered them to the panels.  The last panel that says “luv u always” was also done on MDS.  The ‘always’ stamp set is one of the stamp sets included on MDS when you purchase it.  The waterfall card is really easy to make and lots of fun for the recipient.  They simply pull on the ribbon and they see all the panels.  How fun!  You can find instructions for making this card here on SCS.
