Pleased as Punch Valentine Card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which feature’s the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper! This is part of special product release available for purchase February 4th and features four designs of double-sided DSP (for a total of twelve sheets) that coordinate with punches from the 2020 Mini and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs. How fun is that?? So, I thought I would show you a fun and easy Valentine’s Day card paired with the Heartfelt Bundle!

The base layer is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. The next layer is this design from the Pleased as Punch DSP, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”:

Since the other side of the plaid DSP are hearts that you can punch out with the regular heart punch, I trimmed the DSP down and punched all the hearts out, which gave me a total of 30 hearts. I separated them into groups of three colors. For the first card, you will use the Highland Heather, Blushing Bride, and Pool Part Hearts. On Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink and punch out with the heart punch. I used the scallop heart punch to punch out a Vellum cardstock layer for under the hearts:

Adhere the DSP layer onto the embossed base layer and after adhering the heart layers together, adhere to the DSP layer at slight angles. The sentiment heart is adhered with dimensionals:

This is then adhered to a Petal Pink cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. I used the Dark Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends to color two small Heart Epoxy Droplets:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink and the small hearts in Petal Pink ink. I also adhered at ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the bottom to coordinate with the card front:

I did the same thing for card 2, just used the Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, and Petal Pink DSP hearts. I changed the sentiment from Lovely Lipstick to Poppy Parade and colored the epoxy hearts with Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends:

Super easy card! I did use two of the three sheets of this design, one sheet was to punch out the hearts and the other for the second base layer. What I did with this, is first I cut a 1 ½” strip off the bottom and then I cut the rest for the layer. This way I could trim that long strip down into ¾” x 4” strips for the inside of the card since the card front layer is at 3 ¾”, thus making it too short. I made six cards, three of each design, and I still have four sets of the hearts and a whole sheet of DSP. So, I can make four more cards just like these and then make two of whatever, with the end result of twelve Valentine cards and the majority of the DSP used up!

Valentine’s Day Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Stamp It Group’s Valentine’s Day Blog Hop! My name is Christina Miller and you are visiting my blog, Christina’s Creative Corner! Whether this is your first stop on the blog hop tour or have hopped on over from another blog, thank you for letting me share my creation with you today! Let’s get started!!

I thought I would create “little goodies” for my Valentine’s Day, which are perfect for co-workers, friends, or even if your child has a or attends a Valentine’s party! These are quick and easy, which is awesome if you have several to make. I combined the Heartfelt Bundle and the Honey Bee Bundle, with just a hint of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP, for this super sweet mini card and treat holder.

For the 3” x 3” mini card:

1. Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3” x 6” and score at 3”. Tip-if you use 12” x 12” Whisper White cardstock, you can make 8 of these cards with no leftover scraps.

2. On a piece of Gold Foil Sheet, stamp the stitched heart and sentiment in Stazon ink and punch out with the heart punch. 

3. Use the double heart die from the Detailed Bee Dies to cut out of Gold Foil Sheet.

4. Stamp the bee in Memento ink on Whisper White ink, color in the body with a Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Marker, and cut out with the coordinating die.

5. Use the honeycomb die to cut out a piece in Basic Black cardstock.

Adhere the honeycomb and die cut hearts to the card front and then use dimensionals to adhere the bee and heart. The sentiment is stamped on the inside with Memento ink:

The treat holder is for a piece of Ghirardelli candy (have you tried this one?? Crème Brulee is delicious!!):

1. Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 2” x 5 ½”, punch each end with the Delightful Tag Topper punch, and fold in the middle. Tip-if you use 8 ½” x 11” cardstock, you will make 8 of these with only a ½” strip left over.

2. Cut a 2” x 2” piece of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP and use the Detailed Trio Punch to round the corners.

3. Stamp the bee on Whisper White cardstock, color in the bee with a Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Marker, and cut out with the coordinating die.

4. Cut a piece of Black Satin Ribbon to tie the treat holder closed.

The DSP is adhered to the cardstock and the bee is adhered with a dimensional. The candy fits perfectly if you fold the flaps in:

To tie this all together, I stamped the heart sentiment on the 3” x 3” envelope in Pineapple Punch ink, the bee’s in Memento ink, and colored them in with a Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Marker:

Isn’t this just adorable?? This is a fun and easy way to make a sweet treat for Valentine’s Day! I really like it when I can combine different products for special occasions and the Honey Bee Bundle pairs perfectly with the Heartfelt Bundle.
