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.

Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop.  The 2nd Tuesday of each month we have a Blog Hop.  If you are starting here or have hopped over from Julie Johnston’s blog Welcome.  I hope you will take the time to hop around and see all the amazing projects made by my remarkable team members.  They are a very talented group of ladies.  Our theme for this month is “LOVE”.  We can interpret this any way we would like to.  Here is the card I made for this months Blog Hop.  Take a look.

I started with a Gray Granite card front and adhered a panel of Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper using Snail. Using my Big Shot and the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, I cut out the border of hearts in Petal Pink cardstock.  I also cut out the border of hearts in Gray Granite cardstock.  I adhered the Petal Pink border about 2/3 the way down on my card front.  Using Glue Dots I adhered the Gray Granite hearts inside the Petal Pink border (hope this makes sense).

I wrapped a piece of Silver & Petal Pink Bakers Twine around the card front and tied a side bow.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Forever Lovely stamp set in Gray Granite Ink.  I punched the sentiment out using the Pretty Label Punch.  I punched a second label out in Gray Granite cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White label to the Gray Granite label using Snail.  I adhered the label to the card front using Stampin’ dimensionals.  I then adhered a few of the hearts that were cut out from the Petal Pink heart border to the label using Glue Dots for the 2 smaller hearts and a Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals for the larger heart.  I brushed the hearts with some Wink Of Stella to give them a little shimmer.

On the inside I stamped the cluster of hearts from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Gray Granite Ink over the hearts.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then to a Gray Granite mat using Snail again.  I adhered the matted  piece to the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I adhered a piece of Twinkle Twinkle DSP to a Medium Whisper White Envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up Verticle Greetings for Paper Craft Crew

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and Happy New Year to you all.  Hope you had fun ringing in 2019.  Has anyone made any New Year’s resolutions?

For today’s card I played along with the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #319.  Be sure to stop by Paper Craft Crew to play along and see everyone’s projects.  Here is their sketch.

Here is what I came up with.  Take a look.

I started with a Balmy Blue card base and adhered a piece of the beautiful All My Love Designer Series Paper to the front using Snail.  I then adhered a piece 1/2″ Lovely Lipstick Ribbon from All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack (available in just 2 days).

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Vertical Greeting stamp set.  I colored the stamp in using my Balmy Blue, Lovely Lipstick and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Balmy Blue mat using Snail then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Big Shot I cut out 3 of the smallest hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies in Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I adhered the heats to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel, I stamped the heart from the Vertical Greetings stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink stamping off 3 times to get a very light image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely stamp set (available January 3, 2019), in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Lovely Lipstick mat using Snail then to the Balmy Blue card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the image from the Vertical Greetings stamp set on the envelope front the same way I stamped it on the card.  I adhered a piece of All My Love DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  The stamp set is available from the Annual Catalog and the DSP and Framelits Dies will be available on January 3, in just 2 days.   The new 2019 Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Catalog start on January 3, in just 2 days, YAY!  You’re going to love all the new products.   Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up Time For Tea for Fab Friday #153

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Did you all have a nice Christmas?  Was Santa good to you?  Did anyone get some fun new stamping products?  Hope you all had an enjoyable day with your loved ones.

For today’s card I have a little sneak peek for you.  I played along with the Fab Friday sketch challenge #153.  Please be sure to stop by Fab Friday to play along and see what everyone has made.  Here is their sketch.

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

I started with a Crumb Cake card base and using Snail I adhered a panel of the beautiful All My Love Designer Series Paper, which will be available January 3, 2019.  I adhered a smaller strip of the same DSP about 2/3 of the way down the card front.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the teacup image from the Stampin’ Up Time For Tea Photopolymer Stamp Set in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  Using my Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Write Marker I colored part of the sentiment in and stamped it above and below the teacup.  I colored the teacup in using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Using my Big Shot and my Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies, I cut out the teacup with my second largest stitched circle.  I adhered the artwork to a Pearlized Doilie using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Big Shot, I cut a circle out from Balmy Blue cardstock using my Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  I adhered the Balmy Blue circle just under the Doilie.  I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside on a Whisper White panel I stamped the bottom section of the sentiment from the Time For Tea stamp set in Lovely Lipstick Ink.  I stamped the teacup in Flirty Flamingo Ink, stamping off twice, on top of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Snail then adhered it to the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the teacup from the Time For Tea stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of the All My Love DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Only 8 days till you can order from the new 2019 Occasions Catalog and earn FREE products from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  Happy Stamping.
