Sweet Valentine & Tasteful Touches!

Don’t you just LOVE my card?! I know my SWEET HUBBY will love it! Slim Line cards are all the rage these days so I jumped onto that band wagon! This is my very first Slim Line card and I’m sure it won’t be my last. I am tickled PETAL PINK how my card turned out! LOL! When I brainstorm a card design, I pick out a few things I know that I want to use. In this case it was the heart and the “Love you” stamp from the January 2021 Sending Hearts Paper Pumpkin Kit plus the left over heart embellishments. Do you see them inside the heart?

I used my last large heart embellishment under the sentiment, which is from the Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set. I LOVE the coordinating Tasteful Labels Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Dies. You can buy the stamp set and dies separately or buy them as a bundle and SAVE 10%.

I also knew that I wanted to use Poppy Parade and Petal Pink. January 2021 Sending Hearts Paper Pumpkin Kit included a Poppy Parade Stampin’ Spot and Petal Pink was one of the coordinating colors in the kit. I used the heart stamp for the focal image and to also create my own DSP (Designer Series Paper), which is so simple to do. I just stamped onto Petal Pink cardstock using the heart stamp. My card base is Poppy Parade. By the way, what do you think about how I did the ribbon? I struggled on how I was going to utilize ribbon as I don’t have a lot of current ribbon on hand. The only current white ribbon I have is Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon so that is what I used on my card. Then I had to figure out how I wanted to do the ribbon. I came up with loops! What do you think?!

Taking pictures of my cards are a real struggle as I fight for natural light! There are no windows in my Hobby Nook. Our home has a lot of windows but we sit at a diagonal of the sunrise and sunset.

I used a sentiment from Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set on my inside panel. By the way, you can use other stamps such as the Always In My Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set for the focal heart image. You can see it in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog #154337 page 12 $18.00. Check it out! You can download the catalog from the right side of my blog! Purchase $75 in product (before shipping/taxes) before the end of March and you’ll receive the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Our current annual catalog ends May 3, 2021.

Something Old, Something New Just 4 You!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! This is one of the cards I created to send to someone special! I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do but I knew I had to use the ANY OCCASION Stamp Set #143348 (SAB pg. 14) from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure! You, too, can get this stamp set FREE with a $50 product purchase (before taxes & shipping).

FYI, you can order from the Annual Catalog, Occasions Catalog, and even the Clearance Rack to be able to earn FREE items from the SAB Brochure! February Hostess Code R3G9W2V2

I used the retired Framelits called Hearts Collection for  my two hearts. There is a stamp in this set that has the curved line but it wasn’t long enough so I used the top of a plastic round container to draw the line so it would fit from one side to the other in the heart. I used the retired embossing folder Adorning Accents at the bottom. I love those little hearts! I also used the retired stamp set P.S. I Love You for my sentiments. I love that set!

BTW, you can use the NEW Sweet & Sassy Framelits #141707 (AC pg.193) that has MANY hearts to do this same card! AND you can use the Happy Heart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #137364 (AC pg. 195) to have hearts embossed that will cover the entire card front! Also be sure to check out the Blooming’ Love Stamp Set #140643 (AC pg. 46) and Sealed with Love #142815 (OC pg. 15). Both of these stamp sets have sentiments that would work great with this layout! I included these new/current items in my Supply List below!

I’m HAPPY to say I actually entered into two card challenges today! Check these sites out for GREAT inspiration not to mention the many TALENTED Design Team Members!

SU! Only Challenges

Here is my first Valentine’s Card I made using Real Red card base. Then I decided to use Whisper White for my card base. I actually love both cards! I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the heart up on both cards. I also use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp my sentiments. When using Wood Mount or Clear Mount, I recommend using this hand dandy tool! It’s a life saver and ensures I stamp sentiments exactly where they need to be placed on my card. Nothing worse than messing up and having to start over!
