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.

Happy Valentine’s Day…You’re just my type!

Today is Valentine’s Day and I wish you love!  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a Valentine’s day Challenge.   I love the old fashion typewriter image in the Established Elegance set but I also love all the sentiments in the ‘You’re my Type’ set so I combined both.

I was going for a vintage feel and used Cherry Cobbler with Very Vanilla.  For a bit of sparkle I used the Dazzling Details in Cherry Cobbler on the embossed background.  I also punched the hearts from red glitter paper. The label framelits are fast becoming one of my favorites.  I love all the different sizes.  The paper in the typewriter looks like it’s coming up from the rollers because I cut a notch at the paper holder on the typewriter and put the paper behind it.

I hope you’re inspired to join us this week and spread the love by posting you’re Valentine project at HSS.

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.

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.
