Valentine’s Day part 3

Welcome to part three of my three-part series featuring Valentine’s Day Cards! Each blog post will feature two cards giving alternative ideas featuring some current and some retired Stampin’ Up! products and even some Paper Pumpkin. Don’t worry if you do not have a retired product that is used, you can easily swap it out for what you have on hand or for something that is current.

For this first card, I thought using this stamp from the Party Panda’s stamp set would be perfect to use in creating a Black, White, and Red card.

The card base is in Real Red card stock cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½’, the first base layer is in Basic Black cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and the second base layer is from the Sending Love DSP (retired) cut at 3 ¾” x 5”. On a scrap piece of Whisper White, stamp the panda stamp in Memento ink, color the heart on the envelope with the Real Red Stampin’ Write marker, and then use the sending love stamp from the Sealed with Love stamp set (retired) in Real Red ink. The image is cut out using the 2nd largest square from the Layering Squares Framelits and then a piece in Basic Black using the largest scalloped Layering Square Framelits, adhere together. The two base layers are adhered together, use a piece of the Vintage Crochet Trim (retired) to tie in a bow around the middle, adhere to the card base, and then use Stampin Dimensionals to adhere the square layers to the base layers. The inside sentiment is from the Sealed with Love stamp set, stamped in Real Red and Memento inks.

The second card base is Melon Mambo card stock cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”, and the base layer is from the Painted with Love DSP cut at 3 ½” x 5 ¼”. I used the Love Notes Framelits Dies (retired) for the hearts along the front and then adhered a piece of Gold Foil Sheet cut at ½’ x 5 ½” to the card base so the hearts are on top and adhere the base layer to the card base. Using the three smallest curvy hearts from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits, cut out the hearts from scrap pieces of Rich Razzleberry, Blushing Bride, and Vellum card stock. Layer hearts and adhere to the base layer and I used a piece of Melon Mambo Cotton Ribbon (retired) to tie in a bow and adhered to the biggest heart with a Mini Glue Dot. The inside sentiment is on a piece of Whisper White card stock cut at 3 1/2’” x 5 ¼”, stamped in Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, and Rich Razzleberry inks using the stamps from the Sending Love stamp set (retired).

Anniversary Card

This anniversary card is my first project using items from the New Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs and I really like how versatile the Painted with Love Designer Series Paper is.

For this card, I started with Powder Pink cardstock cut at 8 ½” x 5 ½” and scored at 4 ¼” and the piece of Painted with Love DSP is cut at 5 ¼” x 4”. I used two of the layering hearts from the Sweet and Sassy Framelits, the bigger hearts are in Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry and the smaller hearts are from the Painted Love DSP. The front sentiment is from the Happy Wishes stamp set, stamped in Melon Mambo on a 1” piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock and the end punched from the Banner Triple Punch. I placed some snail on the back of the sentiment and used that to secure the Gold Metallic Thread, placed a couple of the gold hearts from the Metallic Enamel Shapes, and then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop on the front.

The inside sentiment is from the Happy Wishes stamp set, heat embossed in Gold Embossing Powder and the “anniversary” is from the same stamp set, stamped in Melon Mambo. I wanted to give the “happy” a little more pop, so I used Lite Old Olive, Lite Calypso Coral, Dark Pink Pirouette, and Dark Rich Razzleberry for the flowers and leaves. The surrounding flowers are from the Beautiful Peacock stamp set, stamped in Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry.
