Stampin’ Up! So Detailed Valentine

I used the So Detailed Thinlets Dies and the Sealed With Love stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card for today.

So Detailed

 

The inspiration for the sketch is from Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch PCC229

I’m also playing along with the TGIFc93 Color Challenge:

TGIFc93

I started by dry embossing a Whisper White panel with the Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Next, I pulled out the die from the So Detailed Thinlets with the hearts and cut out a panel in Real Red card stock.  I saved some of the little hearts that fell out of the die cut to use on the front panel.  

 

So Detailed

 

Then, I pulled out my Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies and cut out a large heart in Silver Foil.  Next, I die cut graduating sized hearts in Real Red and Whisper White, and a small Real Red one.  The small Silver Foil heart is from the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Framelits Dies.  

 

So Detailed

 

I stamped the sentiment, from Sealed With Love, in Real Red and attached the sentiment heart to the Real Red heart with liquid glue.  The Silver Foil heart was adhered to the card front with liquid glue first, then the So Detailed cut out was glued on top of that.  The sentiment hearts were popped on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I popped the small Silver Foil heart onto the small red heart with dimensionals, wrapped some White Baker’s Twine around a Mini Paper Clip and tied a bow, then clipped it onto the two hearts.  

 

So Detailed

 

I stamped another sentiment and the lips from Sealed With Love, in Real Red, on a panel of Whisper White.  The small hearts were left over from the So Detailed Die cut and I added them with some liquid glue. Finally, I attached the sentiment panel to the Whisper White Thick card stock base with more liquid glue.  

A complete list of products and card stock cuts in inches for my So Detailed Valentine are at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Sealed With Love Valentine Gift Bags

I used several different stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create my Valentine Gift Bags for today.  These bags were actually used at my Open House for my guests to take their goodies home in, you may remember this picture from my post. 

I forgot to show you the close ups and more information on how to make them in case you’d like to make some of your own Valentine Gift Bags

 

Valentine Gift Bags

 

For these two bags, I used the Sealed With Love Bundle, using Real Red and Soft Sky card stock for my heart cut outs and some Sending Love Designer Series Paper for the scalloped die cut.  I fussy cut out a heart on the bag on the right, from one of the Sending Love DSP pages.  I also added a pretty Lace Doily to the bag on the left.  Both bags are stamped with Real Red ink. 

 

Valentine Gift Bags

 

For these two bags, I pulled out my Bloomin’ Heart Thinlets and my Sunshine Wishes Thinlets and some Gold Glimmer Paper.  I used the sentiment and lips stamp from Sealed With Love and stamped them in Real Red.  For the bag on the left, I die cut the open heart from Love Notes Framelits and threaded the arrow, also from the Love Note Framelite, through it.  The large Gold Glimmer heart was die cut with one of the heart dies from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits and the small hearts were from one of the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets Dies.  

 

Valentine Treat Bag

 

 

For this bag, I die cut another Bloomin’ Heart in Real Red and added some Rhinestones to the flower centers.  Then, I made a little envelope with a Sending Love Glassine Sheet and the Love Notes Framelits Die.  The small note on the inside was stamped on Whisper White and then die cut.  The small heart on the envelope flap was stamped with a stamp from Sealed With Love and also die cut.  

I hope you enjoyed my Valentine Treat Bags today!  I know I used a lot of different products, but you can see that there are many stamps and die sets that will work for this type of bag!  I purchased the handled bags at Hobby Lobby.

Stampin’ Up! Sealed With Love for Catalog Launch

I am a little late in posting this as my 2017 Catalog Launch Open House was a few days ago, but life has been a little hectic!  I am sharing a card my attendees made using the Sealed With Love Bundle. The inspiration for this card came directly from the Occasions catalog.  Sometimes, it just is too easy to find inspiration there, especially when you are planning games, making gift bags, cutting card stock, cleaning, and, well you understand!

 

With Love

I started with the spotted Gorgeous Grunge stamp, using the stamping off technique so that the Soft Sky ink would be very subtle on the Whisper White art panel.  Then, I used the solid heart from the Sealed With Love stamp set and randomly stamped a few full strength and a few that had been stamped off all around the panel.  The sentiment was stamped full strength in Soft Sky ink.  

With Love

Next, I stamped the Love Note in Real Red ink and cut it out with the coordinating Love Notes Framelits Dies. Then I chose two panels from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack for the envelopes and die cut them, too.  One was sealed with liquid glue and the other left open for the Love Note to peek out.  

With Love

The open heart was die cut with one of the Love Notes Dies in Real Red and for the arrow, I used Gold Foil.  The wooden heart is one of the Sending Love Embellishments. 

With Love

The inside sentiment is also from Sealed With Love, and it and the lips were stamped in Real Red ink.  

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, so time to get the Sealed With Love Bundle and get busy stamping!  When you order the bundle and the DSP, you will have the chance to order one FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!

Stampin’ Up! Sunshine Wishes Valentine for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday

Happy Inkin’ Thursday, we are back with a new name, but, with the same players!  Today, I am sharing a card using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets Dies, some help from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets, the Sweet & Sassy Framelits and the Sealed With Love Bundle.  

Our color challenge this week is Real Red, Whisper White and Gold… 

 

Sunshine Wishes for Happy Inkin' thursday

….so, I made a Valentine:

 

Sunshine Wishes

My card front has no stamping, but with the help of the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets, I die cut the love sentiment in Gold Glimmer Paper. In fact, I cut out two just to give it a little more pop.  This paper is really thick, so you need to run it through the big shot several times for the die to cut it all out.  I die cut the heart from the Love Notes Framelits Dies in Real Red. I cut some of the letter “o” off before attaching the heart to the rest of the word with liquid glue. 

 

Sunshine Wishes

 

The large Whisper White heart was die cut with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies and placed in the Happy Heart TIEF, then dry embossed.  Next, I die cut the arrow and “open” heart using my Love Notes Framelits Dies and more Gold Glimmer Paper.  I pulled out the die from my Mini Treat Bag Thinlets that creates a line of hearts for the banner.  Again, I had to run it through the Big Shot several times because that Glimmer Paper is so thick.  The small hearts were popped out so that I could use them on the front.  One end of the banner was notched using my Banner Triple Punch.

 

Sunshine Wishes

I pulled out a piece of my Pop of Pink DSP for the other banner and also used the Banner Triple Punch to notch one end.  To add just a little more interest, I cut a length of Gold Metallic Thread and wound it around, attaching it with dimensionals before popping the large heart on the front, also with dimensionals.  

 

sunshine Wishes

For my inside sentiment, I went back to my Sealed With Love stamp set, stamping two of the images in Real Red.   

A complete list of supplies for my Sunshine Wishes Valentine and card stock cuts in inches are at the end of my post.  


Now, on to the rest of the hop.  Kristi is next in line, so make sure to check out her creation for today!

Join my team during Sale-A-Bration!  This is the best time of the year to join Stampin’ Up!  Look at the benefits:

Joining Stampin’ Up! is one of the best things I have ever done.  I love the products and Demonstrator Support is excellent.  When I joined two years ago during Sale-A-Bration, I loved the fact that I got extra stamp sets and got $125 dollars worth of product for $99, and there was free shipping.  That is always a draw for me-I love free shipping!  Also, there was no pressure to sell anything, plus I got a discount on all of my purchases.  Yippee!! I have a super up-line, Amy Koenders, who has encouraged me since day one!  

I would love to add you to my team and you would then become part of our larger team, Amy’s Inkin’ Krew.  I would be happy to answer any questions you might have and you can learn more about joining HERE.

Stampin’ Up! Sealed With Love for the Happy Stampers

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Welcome to this week’s Happy Stamper’s Blog Hop.  I’m sharing the Sealed With Love Bundle with you today.

 

Sealed

 

This week, we are working with a sketch.  If you’re just starting out here, I hope you’ll hop around to see what all of the other team members have created, too.  

 

Sealed

 

I started by stamping the swoosh image from Sealed With Love in Tempting Turquoise onto a panel of Whisper White, using the stamping off method.  Then, I stamped the Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment, also from Sealed With Love, in Real Red.  I pulled out my Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies and cut out a heart, then cut out a little larger heart in Tempting Turquoise to frame it.

 

Sealed

 

Two hearts and an arrow were die cut using the Love Note Framelits Dies from Red Glimmer Paper.  My floral heart was stamped with one of the heart images from Sealed with Love and also die cut with the framelits dies.  Before attaching my sentiment hearts, I attached a piece of one of the new Lace Doilies to the back.  These doilies are really great because one side is Whisper White and the opposite side is Very Vanilla.  The card base is Tempting Turquoise, then a layer of Red Glimmer followed by another layer of Tempting Turquoise, and finally a layer of the Sending Love DSP,  which is part of the Sending Love Suite of products found on pages 14 & 15 of the new 2017 Occasions catalog.  

 

Sealed

 

For the inside of my card, I stamped several of the images from the Sealed With Love stamp set in Real Red ink all around a panel of Whisper White.  Then, I created that adorable little envelope in Tempting Turquoise with my Love Notes Framelits Dies. I slipped in a little note which was also stamped and then die cut and added a Real Red Enamel Shape to the envelope.

 

Sealed

 

Don’t you just love this fun bundle for Valentine’s Day, or anytime you want to send a special little love note to someone?  Purchase the bundle and save 10% and add the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack and earn one FREE item in the Sale-a-Bration catalog, now through March 31st.  Yippee!!

Sealed With Love for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers

Hi and welcome to another week with the Happy Stampers!  My share today is another sneak peek from the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog.  I created a fun Valentine card with the Sealed With Love stamp set and Love Notes Framelits Dies.  Yes, I know we haven’t made it to Christmas yet, but I really wanted to share one of the new suites with you! 

I also used a little creative license with the sketch for this week.

The Sketch:Happy Stampers sketch

My Card:

 

Sealed With Love

 

 

Don’t you just love the new Love Notes Framelits?  My card base is Soft Sky and I die cut it right on the edge to create those adorable hearts as the border.  The sentiments in Sealed With Love have beautiful fonts.  And, of course, bundle the stamp set and framelits and you will save 10%.  The Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stacks is also featured on my card.  

 

Sealed With Love

 

The Real Red and Soft Sky hearts and the Real Red arrow were die cut with the Love Notes Framelits dies.  The wooden heart is from the Sending Love Embellishments that can be purchased to accent this set.  Sorry, you have to wait until January 4, 2017 to order all of these products!  But, you could become a demonstrator and get your hands on them sooner……..

.Sealed With Love

 

The lips stamp, from Sealed With Love, has to be my absolute favorite, but isn’t that font for the sentiment pretty?  I used one of my Sweet & Sassy Framelits dies to cut it out.  (They are available for purchase now.)  

Take a peek at the Sealed With Love stamp set and the Love Notes Framelits:
