Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Valentine’s Day Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a video that I did yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. This is my last Valentine’s Day card and it is inspired by a pretty note card that I found on Pinterest. I am using the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt bundle along with the From My Heart specialty designer series paper.

Here’s the Facebook Live video showing how to make this pretty card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.

I was inspired to make this card when I saw a pretty card by Mary Fish on Pinterest, so I CASE’d (Copy And Share Everything) it. Here’s her original note card.

Using the Heart Punch Pack, I punched the Real Red scalloped foil heart with the scalloped heart punch and the Flirty Flamingo and Real Red foil heart with the regular heart punch and adhered them together. I punched an additional scalloped heart from thick Whisper White card stock to give the heart stiffness and adhered it to the back. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt stamp set in Real Red ink on a panel of Thick Whisper White that was cut out with the Stitched so Sweetly dies. I wrapped a length of Real Red stitched ribbon around the panel and secured it in the back. I popped the heart on the panel with dimensionals and finished the panel with some faceted dots and a bow.

I cut a panel of the From My Heart designer series paper with the Stitched Rectangle dies and adhered it to a Flirty Flamingo mat. I adhered the panel to a Real Red card base and then adhered the decorated Whisper White panel on top.

For the inside of the card, I added a strip of the From My Heart designer series paper to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I stamped two Real Red and a Flirty Flamingo heart from the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt stamp set in the corner. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with snail.

All the Stampin’ Up! Valentine’s Day sets in the new Mini Catalog are great this year! The From My Heart specialty designer series paper is the prettiest Valentine’s Day paper ever and so all the Valentines for this year are sure to please!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Love You Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a video that I did yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. When I saw all the tulips showing up in the grocery store flower shop, I immediately thought of the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp bundle. But I had to make it a Valentine’s Day Card because it’s just around the corner, so I decided on red tulips with heart designer series paper – the new From my Heart specialty designer series paper.

Here’s the Facebook Live video showing how to make this pretty card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.

I started by stamping the tulip flowers on thick Whisper White card stock in Real Red ink. I cut them out with the Tulip Builder punch that comes in the Timeless Tulips bundle. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt stamp set in Real Red ink on a small Whisper White Panel. I stamped the stems and leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set in Granny Apple Green. I adhered the panel to a Real Red mat with snail and adhered the Tulips to the card with dimensionals. I finished the panel with a Real Red bow.

I adhered a panel of the Heart DSP from the From My Heart specialty designer series paper to a Real Red card base. I popped the decorated tulip panel on with dimensionals.

I stamped the large tulip flower in Real Red ink on the left side of a Whisper White panel for the inside of the card. I stamped the stem and leaves in Granny Apple Green. I adhered a strip of the Heart DSP to the bottom of the panel with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with snail.

Valentine’s Day is less than 4 weeks away and the products in the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalog create the cutest cards to say Love You Lots!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Can you feel all the love in the air? I am using the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely photopolymer stamp set with the new From My Heart specialty designer series paper to bring some more.

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using:

Doesn’t it inspire Love? I started with the shiny Real Red with Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White dotted paper from the From My Heart specialty DSP and cut a panel and adhered it to a Flirty Flamingo card base with multipurpose liquid glue. I cut a Thick Whisper White panel with the long flowers die cut from the Lovely Flowers dies which coordinates with the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely stamp set. I used the edge die from the Lovely Flowers die to cut a backing in Flirty Flamingo. I adhered the Flirty Flamingo die cut behind the Whisper White die cut with multipurpose liquid glue.

I wrapped the Real Red satin ribbon around the panels and secured it in the back. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely stamp set in Real Red ink on a scrap of Thick Whisper White. I cut it out with the curved edge die from the Painted Labels dies and popped it over the ribbon with dimensionals. I made a bow and adhered it to the ribbon with glue dots. I popped the layered panel on the card front with dimensionals and finished it off with a Real Red faceted gem on the label.


I stamped the long floral spray from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely stamp set on the bottom of a Whisper White panel in Flirty Flamingo ink. I stamped the coordinating leaf stamp over it using Pear Pizzazz ink. I added the strip of shiny Real Red paper and adhered the panel to a Real Red mat before attaching it to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

With all the flowers and pink and red, Valentine’s Day must be right around the corner – I think we’re getting ready for it!
