Good Morning and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I have a Valentine’s Day card made with the Stampin’ Up Heart To Heart stamp set and the beautiful Love You Always specialty designer series paper and matching foil sheets. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the pretty sketch we are using. I think it’s a Valentine’s Day sketch!
I embossed a panel of Blushing Bride card stock with the Scripty 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Blushing Bride card base. I cut a Blushing Bride foil sheet and a Blushing Bride Love You Always specialty designer series paper with the two different scalloped rectangle dies from the Stitched So Sweetly diesI adhered these together with liquid glue and adhered them to the card front.
I stamped the lattice heart from the Heartfelt stamp set in Blushing Bride on Basic White and cut it out with the plain heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack. I used the scalloped heart punch to punch out a heart from the Blushing Bride Foil and adhered the stamped heart to the front. I cut a little heart from the remaining foil using the heart die from the Lasting Elegance dies and adhered it to the center of the heart and popped the heart on the card front with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heart To Heart stamp set in Rococo Rose and cut it out with the label die from the Always dies using the two step cutting method to make the label fit the sentiment. I cut another label with the same die from the Blushing Bride foil using the same method, but making it a little longer. I adhered the two labels together and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots.
On a Basic White panel, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heart To Heart stamp set in Rococo Rose. I stamped the flower in Blushing Bride, the stem in Pear Pizzazz and heart in Rococo Rose. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! Heart To Heart stamp set has pretty sentiments and images for traditional Valentines – hearts and flowers. The beautiful new Love You Always specialty designer series paper and matching foil sheets are also perfect for fancy Valentines, but they are also great for Weddings, Anniversaries and even extra special Birthdays.
