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.

Valentine Easel Shaker Card

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a technique challenge – Shaker Cards!  I’ve never made this type of card but since I have the Stampin’ Up! Heart Framelits it was easy to make using two different sizes of heart dies to make the red heart frame for the window.  For the easel base I used the large scallop heart framelit.  The cute stamped image is from the Take it to Heart stamp set featured in the new occasions mini.  Can you guess how I created the background?  I used the Lots of Love Letterpress plate.  The letter press embosses and can also ink at the same time.  For a more subtle background you don’t have to ink it up.  The shaker heart is filled with the scrap small hearts after using the Pinking Hearts border punch.  A bit of mica flakes is also mixed with the small hearts to add  some additional sparkle.

Strength & Hope Butterfly Card – Let’s Fight Breast Cancer!

This past weekend I held a workshop and my make-and-take was a card I saw in the May issue of SUCCESS.  SUCCESS is a magazine for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and is a valuable tool to helping us with our business.   I used the colors and punches I own to create the card.  My customers loved making it.  Plus it showcased the stamp set so well.  With each purchase of this stamp set Stampin’ Up! will donate $2 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  BCRF is dedicated to preventing breast cancer and finding a cure in our lifetime by funding clinical and translational research worldwide.

With all my Heart

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have sketch challenge.  I knew I wanted to create a Valentine card because I’ve been itching to use the red glitter paper in the new occasions mini. I also used one of my favorite stamp sets Notably Ornate and my two DSP favs – Love Letter and Newsprint.  Hop on over to HHS and take the challenge.  We’d love to see your projects.

With all my heart Valentine card

I have also entered my card over at Pals Paper Arts.  Their Design Team is so talented.

I knew I wanted to to create a Valentine card because I wanted to use the Red Glitter paper and the Notably Ornate stamp set because I love the frame.  I stamped it and the bird in Basic Black and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I cut them both out with my paper snips.  The dotted heart is from the I {Heart} Hearts set and stamped in Cherry Cobbler and also trimmed with paper snips and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I framed the heart with the Pinking Heart border.  Kasey has a wonderful tutorial on how to frame with punched borders.

I created the large scallop border with 1″ circles.  I punched the circles from the Love Letter DSP.  I adhered the circles starting from the center so the border would end up even on both sides. The polka dot paper is from the Love Letter DSP and I also used a Newsprint layer.  For that Valentine feel I used the Red Glitter paper.  Love it!!  The sentiment banner ends are punched using the 1-1/4 square punch.  The sentiment is from the With all my Heart stamp set.

Hand Stamped Sentiments – From A Card to Something Else – Challenge #39

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is so much fun!  The challenge is to be inspired to create a 3D gift project from a card.  I created a card with the Northern Hearts hostess stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  This stamp set is so versatile.  It’s a Christmas stamp set but can be used for Valentine’s or a birthday.  I love it!  This stamp set can only be earned with a minimum workshop of $150.  Email me to book your workshop so you can earn this stamp set.

With Christmas around the corner I decided to create a Christmas gift set.  I created the card using the bird image in a heart then thought about putting it together with a heart box.  The heart box is perfect for a small gift.  I purchased the heart box from a craft store and painted it with white acrylic paint.  I traced the lid on Cherry Cobbler card stock, cut it out and stamped the bird image in craft Whisper White then adhered it to the top of the lid.  I stamped the image with Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White card stock then cut it out banner style.  I also added small half pearls, and used the Eyelet border punch for trimming and the Perfect Polka dots embossing folder to give my project that extra touch.  The sentiment is from the Contempo Christmas stamp set which is perfect.  I hope you’re inspired to participate in this fun challenge.
