Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Valentine

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re halfway through the week already and on the downhill to the weekend.  It’s been gorgeous weather here.  I’ve had my windows open all day and night.  After being without A/C all summer this is most welcoming.

Before I get to my card, I just wanted to let everyone know about World Card Making Day, Saturday October 3rd.  Our Inkin’ Krew Team will be doing videos all day, every hour.  I will actually be doing 2 Facebook Live videos that day.  I will post a schedule when we get closer.

Today’s card is the last card that we made on Sunday at our virtual in person team meeting.  The Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Bundle has all different occasions in it.  This is such an awesome bundle to have that can be used over and over again.  It covers Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine’s Day.  What’s not to love about a bundle like this.  Here’s my card which was a design by my team member Sue.  Sue only used the stamp set for her design, I did have to adjust it a little since I didn’t have some of the items she was using.

I started by embossing a Whisper White panel using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Melon Mambo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From another panel of the Plaid Tidings DSP I cut the stitched heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I then cut a scalloped stitched heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies.  I adhered the 2 hearts together using Stampin’ Dimensionals around the edges on the back and adhered it to the card front.  On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebration Tidings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Melon Mambo Ink.

Using my Paper Snips, I cut the words out separately and adhered them to the heart using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the heart and the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Meant To Be Cling Stamp Set in Melon Mambo Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the heart with the scroll from the Celebration Tidings stamp set on the top of the panel and the small hearts from the Celebration Tidings stamp set randomly around in Melon Mambo Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Melon Mambo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the heart with the scroll and the small heart from the Celebration Tidings stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked the card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
