So In Love … Happy Anniversary

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared with you the “So In Love” bundle, what did you think? Pretty right!

Well today I’m going to share a simply beautiful card that I created using the “So In Love” bundle. I began with with the largest of the dies and knew I just wanted it to highlight my designer paper.

I knew I was going to use the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper so I chose the Very Vanilla cardstock as my base and cardstock to be die cut. I used the Precision Base Plate and die brush to cut and discard of the inner pieces with ease.

Next, I layered my designer paper onto my base, and then my die cut piece onto the designer paper.  I then added my “Happy Anniversary” greeting which I stamped in Crumb Cake on my banner.  I added the pretty little “Falling in Love” embellishment to anchor my banner and create and eye catching effect.

How simple, and how pretty is this.  You could use this card layout with so many of our pretty designer papers, and there are plenty more greetings to use in this stamp set.

Hope you enjoyed … Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Have an awesome day!

So In Love …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a quick post but it’s packed full of stampin’ tips and samples from the So In Love bundle. We’re going to start with a video …

Carrie, from the training team at Stampin’ Up!, shares some beautiful project ideas and tips for using the So in Love Stamp Set and So Detailed Thinlits Dies from the 2017 occasions catalog.

I also want to share some additional projects that were created with this fabulous bundle …

Here you can see the foliage stamp was used to create the background, then the flower was added to compliment the foliage and add some dimension.  A pretty bow and an banner with the “just for you” greeting completes this card. 

Look at the jar in the background … it was wrapped with one of the delicate bands created from the dies. Below the die cut band was used again to turn this simple bag into a beautiful gift bag.

If you love pretty, delicate items … this is the bundle for you.  I can image all sorts of beautiful cards and gift packages that you could make for Wedding’s, Anniversaries, Mother’s Day … or a special friend.

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …

 

 

 

Simply Saturday … Valentine

Hello my Stampin’ Friends,

Holy cow … I’m a bit late with my post today!  Got caught up in the Winter Olympics and then in my stampin’ room creating.  Funny how time flies … one minute it’s 9:30 in the morning the next it’s almost 2 in the afternoon!  On that note, let’s get on to the card share.

This Saturday share is simple and easy to make.  Sometimes we get so bogged down with trying to make impressive cards that we forget that sometimes simplicity is pretty!

I wanted to make one more Valentine’s card for you …. it’s less than a week away, so I simply layered the beautiful Fancy Foil Designer Vellum in Silver over Real Red mat.  My base is Whisper White.  Then I added a bow using the Real Red Grosgrain Stitched Ribbon.

Next step was to choose a greeting… I pulled “Happy Together” from the “A Dozen Thoughts” stamp set.  I wanted to add a little flair to the greeting, so I turned it into a banner.  A simple heart punched out of the Red Glimmer paper was added to finish off the card.

Just think of all the wonderful cards you could make using this layout and some designer series paper!

Have a wonderful Saturday and I’ll see you tomorrow.

So Happy Together …

Hello my Stampin’ Friends,

It’s finally Friday!!  Wooooooooooo Hooooooooooooo!  I’m not complaining … my work week went very fast, and we closed the candy store on Tuesday because of the bitter cold, so it was a short week too.

Today’s card share will warm your heart.  A sweet and simple card created with heart … and with punches!  You can use it for Valentine’s Day or an Anniversary.

I knew I wanted to use our Red Glimmer Paper for the card, in fact, the entire card was designed in my head (now you know it won’t be hard to make – lol)

I simply punched out the red glimmer paper with the “Postage Stamp Punch”.  I then punched 3 hearts out of a strip of Whisper White using the Small Heart Punch.  Then I centered the 1″ Square Punch over the heart and punched out the square.  It is so much easier to center the hearts that way, instead of trying to punch the heart out of the square.

I mounted the white heart squares onto the red glimmer paper using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then mounted each of the completed squares using the Glue Dots onto the Whisper White mat.

The mat is 5″ x 3-3/4″ and is mounted onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Since my “A Dozen Thoughts” stamp set was still on my table from yesterday’s card … I chose the “happy together” for my greeting.

Not to waste the hearts … I stamped the greeting onto one of them, and then layered it over the stamped greeting to add a bit of dimension onto the bottom half of the card.  The other two hearts are on the inside of the card.

You will notice that the main part of the stamping in the heart is “to”… for the two of you together!

Have a “happy” weekend ~
