Stampin’ Up! Sunshine Wishes Valentine for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew

Amy's Inkin' Krew Share the Love Blog Hop

 

Happy Valentine’s Day and welcome to our Share the Love Blog Hop, compliments of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew!  I made a Sunshine Wishes Valentine to share today, with some help from Thoughtful Banners and the Love Notes Framelits Dies.  
Sunshine Wishes Valentine

I used the Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and dry embossed a panel of Whisper White, and set it aside.  Then, I made a banner with my Banner Triple Punch and some Pop of Pink DSP.  Next, I cut out some hearts with more of the Pop of Pink, Melon Mambo and Basic Black.  I pulled out the Love from Sunshine Wishes and die cut it in Melon Mambo three times.  The arrow is from the Love Notes Framelits Dies.

 

Sunshine Wishes Valentine

 

 

Before stamping the You sentiment, I arranged all of the hearts and the banner on top of the Whisper White embossed panel to make sure of placement.  Then, it was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink.  The banner was adhered first, then, I adhered Love onto the largest heart with liquid glue.  All of the larger hearts were popped onto the front with dimensionals, and the smaller ones glued on.  

 

Sunshine Wishes Valentine

 

For the inside of my card, I added a strip of the dotted Pop of Pink DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel, then also added some left over small hearts.  Finally, I adhered the inside panel to the Whisper White card base with liquid glue.  There you have it, my Sunshine Wishes Valentine!  When you put different stamp sets and framelits together, you can come up with some amazingly different types of cards! 

A complete list of Stampin’ Up! products used to create this Sunshine Wishes Valentine as well as card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.

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

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! Valentine Sweet Treat Box

I made Valentine Sweet Treat Boxes from the Stampin’ Up! Popcorn Box Thinlets Dies for my share today.  

Valentine Treat

 

These Popcorn Boxes are so versatile, and they come together quickly.  I used them at Christmas time for little candy treat boxes and really, they can be decorated for any special holiday treats. 

 

Valentine Treat

I started by creating the Popcorn Boxes with the Popcorn Box Thinlets Dies and the Brights Designer Series Paper Stacks Real Red paper.  For the box on the left, I die cut the large heart from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets Dies and a panel of Sending Love DSP.  I used Gold Foil, Dazzling Diamonds, and Real Red card stock to die cut the medium sized hearts from the Love Notes Framelits Dies.  Next I stamped From Me to You, one of the sentiments from Ready to Pop,  in Versa Mark ink and sprinkled it with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  

For the Valentine Sweet Treat box on the right, I used another sentiment from Ready to Pop, and embossed it in Gold also. The Gold Foil arrow was die cut with the Love Notes Framelits.  The Whisper White sentiment heart and the Real Red Heart were also die cut with the Love Notes Framelits and the banner is a panel of the Sending Love DSP cut with the Banner Triple Punch.  

Valentine Sweet

I know I have used quite a few different products today, but I hope I have shown you that if you look carefully at your stamp sets and framelits, you may find many ways to use them!   Now, do I give away these chocolate covered truffle hearts inside the carefully packaged Valentine Sweet Treat boxes (with 6 x 8 Celophane bags), or do I just unwrap them and save them for myself?!!

A complete list of products used for these boxes will be at the end of my post.

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!!  

Here are a couple of shots of the ladies working on their cards

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!

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:

Stampin’ Up! the Sky is the Limit

Happy Saturday!  I decided to make a Valentine card using the Stampin’ Up! Sky is the Limit stamps from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  This is a really fun set and what makes it even better is it can be yours for FREE when you purchase $50 in Stampin’ Up! products.  You only have a limited time to get your hands on this great set, though.  It is only available through February 15th.  If you love it as much as me, you need to hurry and get yours!

Sky is the Limit by Cardiology by Jari

I started out by stamping the bi-plane image from Sky is the Limit in Basic Black archival ink onto Very Vanilla card stock and fussy cut it with my paper snips.  Next, I layered the Typeset Specialty DSP onto a panel of Basic Black with Multipurpose liquid glue, then glued a strip of the stripe from the Typeset DSP to a panel of Basic Black and glued it to the front and popped it onto the Real Red base with Dimensionals.

Sky is the Limit by Cardiology by JariDimensionals were added to the plane and the hearts before popping  them onto the front.  My banner is stamped in Real Red with a sentiment from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set from Stampin’ Up! , and framed the banner with another banner in Basic Black. It was also added with Dimenensionals.

Sky is the Limit by Cardiology by Jari

I love this sentiment from Sky is the Limit, and I thought it worked well for this Valentine card.  What do you think?

Real Red base 4 1/4 X 11; scored and folded at 5 1/2; scraps for hearts

If you are in need of a quick and easy card, this one fills the bill.  For the background, I layered a panel of Love Blossoms DSP onto a little larger panel of Garden Green, then attached that to the Blushing Bride card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

The sentiment, from Stampin’ Up! Friendly Wishes, was stamped in Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride, and Rose Red onto a panel of Whisper White using my Stamp-a-ma-jig.  Boy is that a life saver!  I framed the sentiment panel with a panel of Rose Red using Multipurpose Liquid glue to attach them, then popped it onto the base with Dimensionals.

I stamped Be Mine, also from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set, in Rose Red ink. I decided I needed a little bling, so I punched out a small heart of Blushing Bride glimmer paper using my Itty Bitty heart Accents punch.  It and the banner are popped onto the front with Dimensionals.

Today’s Happy Stampers Team Blog hop features a color challenge for the last day of 2015:

12096205_1282833705076535_3973718640053185818_n

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Bloomin’ Love stamp set and the coordinating Bloomin’ Heart Thinlet Dies available on January 5th,  to create my card for today.

Bloomin' Love Card-iology by JariDon’t you just love the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper?  It really adds some pizzaz to your projects!   The Bloomin’ Heart Thinlet Die (Heart) was my starting point.  After the heart, I used the two flower dies included in the set to create my Real Red and Whisper White flowers.

Bloomin' Love Card-iology by JariBefore die-cutting the flowers, I stamped Real Red ink onto the Real Red and Whisper White cardstocks using the flower stamps in the Bloomin’ Love stamp set.  Next, I stamped the banner from the set in Soft Suede and then stamped the sentiment, also from Bloomin’ Love, in Real Red ink.  The banner coordinates with the new Large Numbers Framelets Dies also available January 5th!

Bloomin' Love Card-iology by JariI added some small Pearl Basic Jewels to the center of the flowers and then punched 5 small hearts with my heart punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack in more of the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper. Two of those hearts went on the outside, and the other three went inside.

The inside sentiment is also from Bloomin’ Love, and is stamped in Real Red onto Whisper White.  I know you are going to add this new bundle to your wish list for January 5th! The Bloomin’ Love stamp set and Bloomin’ Heart Thinlet Dies come in a bundle so that you can save 15%.  Isn’t that wonderful?!!  You will also want to check out the new Big Shot Die Brush-you can easily remove your die cut pieces with this great new tool.
