Be My Valentine Card with Adorable Owls

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am tickled pink to share today’s card with you. With Valentines Day approaching quicker than we’d like to think and I cannot get enough of these little owls from the Adorable Owls so they are highlighting my card again today. The Adorable Owls will be FREE during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order.

First let me start with the Sweet Talk Designer Paper … it’s on the Clearance Rack and is as adorable as these owls!

The sheet I chose has the two patterns you see … one on the front and one on the back, and then I used the Black Glitter Washi Tape from the Holiday catalog that retires on the 4th of this month. I used Real Red for my card base to coordinate with the Sweet Talk Designer paper. Let’s take a look …. Now let’s talk about our Adorable Owls!!

I stamp them with Momento Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and then color them with our Stampin’ Blends Alcohol markers. Yesterday I used the Smoky Slate Combo pack to color and today chose the Natural Tones Stampin’ Blends.

I used 200 from the Deep Tones, and 500 from the Medium Tones Combo. The Natural Tones come in combo packs of two, but they are two different tones. I begin coloring with the 500 Medium tone and then color in my darker 200 marker, then I go back over with the lighter color. I also use the color lifter if I think it’s too dark or go outside of the lines, so the areas that look “highlighted” are actually done with the color lifter.

I decked out my gent with a nice blue bow tie to match his eyes – I used Light Balmy Blue and Light Night of Navy for both. My lady has Dark Pool Party and Dark Bermuda Bay eyes and she is adorned with a necklace created with the NEW Opaque Adhesive Backed Gems.

My greeting comes from the NEW Share a Milkshake bundle and stamped with StazOn ink (doesn’t smear on vellum) and then die cut using the 2nd largest circle from Stylish Shapes. This card uses the Sweet Talk from the Clearance Rack for a sweet Valentines Day and the Adorable Owls… they sure named them correctly!

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.

Have a wonderful week ~

Here is a list of supplies used to create this card …. The Share a Milkshake and Opaque Gems will be available January 5th, and the Washi Tape retires after the 4th. The Adorable Owls will be FREE during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order.

Shake Things Up with the New Horizons Designer Paper

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’ll be sharing my video replay of last nights Facebook LIVE along with the two cards. I showcasing the New Horizons Designer Paper and Stitched Rectangle Dies … also highlighted is the Sweet Conversations Bundle.

I love all the pinks and purples in this card and with Valentines Day right around the corner … I thought this would be perfect, and what better way to showcase the card than a “Shaker” card! Don’t we all want to get “all shook up” over Valentines?

Ok … just a little teaser there and a close up of how I did the greeting! Let’s take a look at the video. You can grab a cup of coffee (or your favorite beverage) and join me …

The card would have been assembled even quicker if I wouldn’t have had “technical difficulties” … Oh, if only life’s little problems wouldn’t rear their heads when your going LIVE … LOL


  • Blackberry Bliss: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ Scored at 4-1/4″ fold in half
  • Designer Paper: 5-1/4″ x 4″ (to be die cut)
  • Basic White: 5-1/4″ x 4″ (inside of card) Extra strip for greeting.
  • Window Sheet: 3-7/8″ x 2-3/8″

The video shows how you can use the entire piece of designer paper on your card as I did here on my sample …

I thought it was just too cute to wrap my greeting in hearts, and it was a way to use the strip of heart from the die cut. I’m sure Stampin’ Up! designed it that way, but we like to think we can be creative too! lol

I really do like the “white” background on the card because it really makes the hearts POP!! I also enjoy stamping with my friends and getting their opinion … that is my favorite part of the Facebook LIVES! I love to share but the interaction with you, my stampin’ friends is what makes it so fun.

I thank you for taking time out of your day to hang with me and watch (or rewatch) the video. I really would love to hear what YOU want to see … If I have it, I will share it.

Have an amazing day ~

Four Quick & Cute Valentine’s Cards!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am so excited to share my cards and video with you today … the cards turned out so cute and are all so different for being created with the same suite. I tried to showcase all of the products in the suite … I did good! I only missed out on the red ribbon.

Let’s start the fun off with the video …

Now that you watched the video, let’s get a close up of those cards. The first card is so simple and cute … perfect for making Valentines for the kids! You will get 16 cards from one 12 x 12 sheet of the designer paper, and you have many cute patterns to choose from!

A simple card base and a 3″ x 3″ square with a 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ mat with a coordinating color behind it. Stamp on your greeting and your good to go. Remember, you can stamp those cute hearts instead of die cutting your designer paper … just do what works best for you!

My second card highlights the embossing folder and the hearts and Iridescent Rhinestones really say … Happy Valentines Day!

By popping up the embossed card stock, you not only add texture to your card but so much dimension, and that includes the playful layering of the hearts. Who wouldn’t want to get this little cutie!? It’s just full of love

The third card adds a bit more “bold” to our valentine cards … I pulled the red out of the designer paper pattern and added some black. Don’t you just love the gingham ribbon, so glad it carried over, it adds that nice pop without over taking the the hearts.

The hearts are stamped in Real Red and die cut so I could “pop” them up too! There is double the layers because I popped up the tags as well. This card wouldn’t have to be for Valentines at all … it’s a perfect way to say “I’m glad you’re in my life” to your friends (BFF!)

I put both cards together so you could see the subtle difference (and no bling on the “in line” hearts. I do want to share the dimensions again as I think I said them wrong in the video:

  • The Basic White Base: 9-1/4″ x 7-1/4″ then score at 3-3/4″ and fold
  • The Basic Black Mat: 8-3/4″ x 3-1/4″
  • Designer Paper: 8-1/2″ x 3″

I’m so thrilled with the way all these cards turned out and so happy to share them with you. I hope they inspire you to create and send Valentines or cards filled with love for a friend (or your favorite sister)!

Don’t forget … Sale-a-bration is in full swing and you will receive a FREE Sale-a-bration item with the purchase of this suite … Add the Take Your Pick Tool and the mat and you’ll have enough for 2 FREE items or a Level 2 Sale-a-bration item. CLICK HERE TO VIEW CATALOG

Thank you for hanging out with me today, and I hope you are just as excited as I am for this new suite, and that I’ve inspired you to get back in your stamp room! Have fun 🙂

Have a wonderful day ~
