Stamp It Group Blog Hop, Valentine's Day

Team Stamp It Blog Hop – Valentine’s Day

Hello and welcome to the Stamp It Group’s Valentine Day Blog Hop.  Today, we are featuring cards with a love theme.   I’m sharing a Valentine card designed for my husband with a simple masculine look in classic black and red.

I used a mix of new products from the 2020 Occasions Catalog and products in the 2019-2020 Annual catalog which carried over from the 2019 Occasions catalog.  The new Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder makes a nice versatile background and the striped design from the From My Heart Speciality Designer Series Paper was exactly the classic look I wanted.  The hearts were all cut with the Be Mine Stitched Framelits dies, including the foil heart strip in the background.  The sentiment is from the new Heartfelt stamp set and fits perfectly on the smaller heart.  The arrow is also from the Heartfelt stamp set.  I stamped it in black ink and fussy cut it out.  It is adhered to the back of the white heart and both are popped up with dimensionals.

Inside the card, I used stamps from 3 sets – Forever Lovely, Heartfelt, and Meant to Be.  I usually overlook the smaller sentiments in a set, but the “my love” stamp in the Forever Lovely set adds a nice personal touch to the sentiment.  I used the Stamparatus to be sure that I would center the dotted heart perfectly around the sentiment.

Valentine's Day

Party Pandas Valentine

The Party Pandas stamp set is absolutely adorable!  And this week’s challenge over at What Will You Stamp? features this stamp set.  The Party Pandas stamp set is one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration products available with a qualifying purchase.

These cute little pandas were so much fun to use for my granddaughters’ Valentine cards and today I’m sharing one of those cards.

Being a Valentine card, I used images from both the Heart Happiness and Sure Do Love You stamp sets to create a heart shaped balloon.  I couldn’t resist adding an enamel heart in the panda’s other paw.

Another Valentine

Today I’m sharing a card my Coffee & Cards group made this week using products from the Painted with Love Suite in the 2018 Occasions Catalog.

The Painted with Love DSP is so pretty with lovely color combination and gold accents.  For this card, I started with a Whisper White base and added a panel of Rich Razzleberry.   Next, I added a banner cut from one of the DSP prints.  The heart image and sentiment are both from the Sure Do Love You stamp set and are cut out using the coordinating framelits.  The heart is stamped in Calypso Coral and the sentiment is embossed in gold.

The Sure Do Love You stamp set and Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies are offered as a bundle which will save you 10%.  Purchase a package of Painted with Love Specialty DSP with the bundle and you earn a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  These items can all be purchased from my Online Store.

2018 Occasions, Valentine's Day

You’re My Valentine

I hope your new year has started out well!  I’ve enjoyed some extra time to play with a few of the beautiful new products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.

I often struggle with where to start on a new card and find that online challenge blogs are a great source of inspiration.  Today I’m sharing a card inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #280.

You're My Valentine - HSS #280

This card features a few products from the Painted with Love product suite in the Occasions catalog.  The Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is absolutely gorgeous!  Each sheet has gold foil accents on one side and brushstroke imagery on the other.  This card makes use of both.   The gold foil doily pairs so nicely with the DSP.  Notice the tinsel trim behind the heart?  What a fun way to add some bling.  The sentiment is one from the Sure Do Love You stamp set.  It coordinates with the heart image in the same set.

Supplies Used

Ink: Powder Pink, Rich Razzleberry

Embellishments:  Love Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack, Metallic Foil Doily

Valentine's Day

It’s All About Love!


SSC117fWith just a month until Valentine’s Day, the Sunday Stamps color challenge helped me get started on Valentine’s cards.  The colors I used for this card are Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, and Whisper White.

The cute little heart on this card is from the You’re So Sweet stamp set and is cut out with the coordinating die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies.  It is layered onto a small tag cut out using the Tags and Labels Framelits Dies.  The soft texture on the Blushing Bride layer is achieved using the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder – such a versatile embossing folder!  A piece of a Tea Lace Paper Doily and a small flower with a pearl center complete this card.
