Good Morning! Today it is time for the January Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop and the theme is “Love”. I made a note card with the awesome Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions stamp set with a little treat holder made with the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box dies. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I am featuring the new Best Dressed designer series paper for today’s project because hearts and flowers with presents say LOVE:
I cut a panel of the Best Dressed designer series paper and adhered it to the front of a Whisper White Note Card. I took a panel of Whisper White and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Abstract Impressions stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink. I stamped the two thickest images of the rose in Highland Heather ink. I stamped off the thick one and then stamped the thinner one on top full strength.
I stamped several of the round flowers in Daffodil Delight. I inked up the single flower that was off to the side and again stamped the thicker image after stamping off once and the highlight stamp full strength. I stamped the single leaf the same way using Mint Macaron – stamping off once for the background and full strength for the highlight. These two-step stamping sets make a nice design when used this way and the photopolymer makes it easy to see and control your design. For the red flowers, I used my Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Write marker to hand draw small wispy flowers to echo the flowers in the background paper.
After I finished stamping the panel, I adhered it to a Purple Posy mat with multipurpose liquid glue and then popped it on the front of the note card with dimensionals. I finished off the front with a Purple Posy faceted dot and a Blackberry Bliss twine bow. I decorated the envelope by stamping the flower and some leaves in Highland Heather and Mint Macaron, just like the card front.
I used the same sheet of Best Dressed designer series paper to make a Mini Curvy Keepsake box. I used the heart tag die cut to cut a heart from the DSP and from Blackberry Bliss card stock. I decorated the hearts with the small stitched heart from the Stitched Labels dies – I was pleased that these hearts go together perfectly. I tied the hearts to the box handle with Mossy Meadow Linen Thread.
I kept the inside simple, just adding some hearts made with the small heart die.
This set is designed for a quick little love note and chocolate treat – perfect for that someone special!
