Hearts a Flutter, Love You

With Valentine’s day a few weeks away, I created a Valentine’s day card.  I used the Hearts a Flutter Framelits and stamp set.  Although the stamp set is retired you can still purchase the digital set.  I used the sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments to inspire me and the colors of Real Red, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral and Whisper White.

The designer series paper is from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  The cute border was created with the new Confetti Hearts Border Punch.  It creates a cute border and lots of cute hearts.  The scalloped red heart is stamped with White Whisper Craft ink then die cut with Hearts a Flutter Framelits.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and die cut with a banner from the Bitty Banners Framelits set.  The small hearts are the hearts punched out with the Confetti Hearts Border Punch.  To add sparkle I embellished the card with basic rhinestones and vintage faceted buttons.

Groovy Love From My Heart

This week’s challenge is a color splash challenge with the colors of Basic Black, Whisper White and Melon Mambo.  These colors inspired me to use my Groovy Love stamp set and coordinating heart punch to create this card.  I also used the new Happy Heart embossing folder from the Occasions catalog on the Whisper White layer along with the Fun Frames embossing folders for the hearts.  After embossing the frame on to Whisper White I cut the frame and sponged with Melon Mambo.

I stamped the polka dot heart and used the Sweetheart punch to die cut it.  I also used the punch to die cut a Melon Mambo and Whisper White hearts.  The edges of the Whisper White heart is sponged with Melon Mambo.  I then adhere the hearts on to the frame with Dimensionals.  I then used 1/8″ Melon Mambo taffeta ribbon to embellish.

Valentine’s with Stampin’ Up! Circle and Label Thinlits die

Love the Circle and Label Thinlits dies!  This week for Handstamped Sentiments Sketch challenge I created this card using the Circle Thinlits die with elements from the Label Thinlits.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

For this fun card I used a new Valentine’s color combo of Real Red, Pool Party, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight.  It was a lot of fun creating this card using Stampin’ Up! items from my latest stash from the Occasions catalog.  So many Stampin’ Up! products to play with with and so little time.    The Circle thinlits die made it so easy to create this card.

I started with a Whisper White card base of 5-7/8″ x 5-1/2″ then die cut using the Circle framelits die and the Big Shot.

I used the Real Red from the Polka Dot Parade DSP on the right panel then just went crazy embellishing with hearts and such.  I also used the Large Scallop Edgelits die to die cut the scallop edge in Real Red.  The left side of the panel is stamped with the “Countless Sayings 1” Photopolymer Stamp set.  If you haven’t tried Stampin’ Up!’s Photopolymer stamps, you’re in for a treat.  The images are crisp and you can see precisely where you’re stamping.

Also used was the heart from the Owl builder punch.  The sentiment “love ya”  is from the “Just Sayin’ stamp set and Thinlits bundle.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed with White embossing powder.  The “i love u’ is from the Label Card Thinlits die set.  Also used was the scallop heart die from ” Hearts a Flutter” framelits set and the Small heart punch.  To finish the card I used lots basic rhinestones.

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.
