Stampin’ Up Assorted Valentine Cards

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Well, we made it to Friday.  Has anyone made any fun plans for the weekend?

For today I have an assortment of cards for you.  They are all the same design just different colors and images.  This card is super simple and quick.  I never make 2 cards the same, so that’s why each card is a different color and had a different image on it.  This is one of the cards we will be making next week at my workshop.  Take a look.

As you can see all the cards are kind of the same.  The frog card is made with Melon Mambo and the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch.  The puppy is made with Poppy Parade and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and the kitty is made with Blushing Bride and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  All these cards are Peek-A-Boo cards


I started with a card base in each of the differed colors. Using Snail, I adhered a panel of either Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper or Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to match the card base. I then adhered a strip of the matching cardstock along the seam of the DSP.  I punched the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch out of the Melon Mambo card and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies from the Poppy Parade and Blushing Bride cards.


I stamped the Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely stamp set in either Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (on the Melon Mambo or Poppy Parade cards) or Early Espresso Ink (for the Blushing Bride card) above the circle or ovals.  I wrapped a piece of Whisper White 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the top of each card base and tied a knot.  I added 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels to each of the card fronts.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the frog from Stampin’ Up So Hoppy Together, the puppy from Stampin’ Up Bella & Friends stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and the kitten from Stampin’ Up Pretty Kitty stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the frog in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the puppy in using my Poppy Parade and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the kitten in using my Crumb Cake and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker.  I cut each of the images out using the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch or the same size Oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. 

I stamped the You Are Loved sentiment from the Forever Lovely stamp set on a Whisper White panel using Melon Mambo, Poppy Parade or Early Espresso Inks.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of each of the card bases.

I lined the cut image with the card front and using Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered the images to the inside panel.

To complete each card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the frog, puppy or kitten on the front of each envelope and colored them in the same as I did for the cards.  I adhered a piece of the matching 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flaps.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my cards and will give them a try.  This is a super quick and easy card that looks like you took a lot of time to make. Happy Stamping.

Now on to my card for today.  For today I used some of the new DSP from the Occasions Catalog and a couple of the FREE items you can earn from Sale-A-Bration.  Take a look.

I started with a piece of Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  Using my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Marker I drew lines between the checks to make it look like plaid.  I adhered a small piece of the DSP to the left side of a Whisper White card front using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of the Grapefruit Grove 1/4″ Organdy Ribbon around the card front on the seem.  I adhered the card front to a Call Me Clover mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  In the upper right corner of the Whisper White panel, I stamped the flies from the So Hoppy Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in using my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Marker.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the Frog riding the unicycle from Stampin’ Up So Hoppy Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Call Me Clover Ink below the wheel.  I colored the frog and unicycle in using my Basic Black, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch, Smoky Slate and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the artwork to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail and then to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 1 Grapefruit Grove Share What You Love Artisan Pearl next to the sentiment.

On the inside Whisper White panel I stamped the frog from So Hoppy Together stamp set on the bottom portion of the panel and the flies from the same set by the frog.  I colored it in the same as I did for the front of the card.  I adhered a small strip of the Gingham Gala 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Postcard Pals stamp set in Call Me Clover in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail, then adhered it to the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the frog from the So Happy Together stamp set on both sides of the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did on the card.  I adhered a piece of the Gingham Gala 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  This was really a fun card to make and I hope you will give it a try.  Happy Stamping.

Stampin’ Up So Hoppy Together Sneak Peak for Global Designs and Sunday Stamps

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  I have a sneak peak for you today from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration catalog.

My card today is for 2 challenges.  It’s for Global Designs Project # 169 and for Sunday Stamps Getting Sketchy # 194.  Be sure to stop by Global Designs and Sunday Stamps to see all the amazing projects made and to play along.

Global Designs Project #169 has a color challenge.

Sunday Stamps has a Sketch challenge.

Here is what I came up with for the 2 challenges.  Take a look.

I started with a piece of Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in Poppy  Parade and adhered it to a Pool Party mat using Snail.  I adhered it to a Poppy Parade card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink,  I stamped the frog from the up coming So Hoppy Together stamp set that will be available FREE as a Sale-A-Bration item from January 3, 2019 – March 31, 2019.  You will be able to get this stamp set free with a $50 purchase.  I colored the frog in using Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut the frog image out using my Big Shot and one of the circles from the Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies.  I cut the scalloped circle out in Pool Party cardstock using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the scalloped circle mat using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the dragonfly from the So Hoppy Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the frog image.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and made a banner.  I adhered the banner below the frog using Snail and added a Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiment from Colorful Seasons stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the frog and the bees from the So Hoppy Together stamp set on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the frog and dragonfly image from So Hoppy Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I colored the frog in using Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the dragonfly in with Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a piece of Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Starting January 3, 2019 you will be able to earn this stamp set with Sale-A-Bration along with a lot of other great items.  Happy Stamping.
