FLOWERS ARE LOVE

Do you like receiving flowers?  I sure do and think that they are probably one of the best gifts that show the giver loves you!  So today’s card in flower-infused.

No stamping here, just some great dies to layer over those beautiful flowers!  I used the Stitched with Whimsey dies(155314) to create the background mat for those flowers and then had fun with the Stitched Be Mine dies as well as the matching dies from the Forever & Always Bundle.

I’m following along with the new layout from Freshly Made Sketches and playing along with the SUO Challenge to use a “Love” theme.

We’re heading into the weekend and I wish you a happy one and don’t forget to do some stamping.  It’s known to be good for the soul!

ALWAYS TOGETHER

That title is the truth in this day and age – we’re always together in our small, safe bubbles.  So why not create a pretty card for the occasion?

I’m carrying on with the love theme here using the Forever & Always bundle(156200).  I also decided to use a few more colours than usual with the combination of Rococo Rose, Pool Party and the Just Jade in the designer paper piece.  It turned out very nicely and I’m quite happy with it.  This just might be the Valentine card that I give to my husband this year(yes, he does like flowers).

Here’s the product list for you to check out.  Just click on any of the pictures to do to my Online Store.

Best wishes to you in your safe bubble and happy stamping!

LOVE YOU MUCH

Hi on this wintery Monday!  I’m starting the week off with a “love” card that isn’t just for Valentine’s day.

Have you checked out the Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate(154557) yet?  Oh my, it’s beautiful and helps to make the perfect statement on a simple “love” card!

TIP:  I adhered the words to the acetate first and then added Mini Glue Dots strategically so they wouldn’t show through.  Using a bit of the adhesive from the Fine-Tip Glue Pen helps too.

I just couldn’t leave the card base plain so after adhering the Poppy Parade strip, tucked it into the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder(154317).

I needed an idea for the layout so followed along with the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge.

INTRODUCING KANGAROO & COMPANY

I very pleased and excited to introduce you to the Kangaroo & Company Bundle(156269).

This family is absolutely adorable!

Aww, there they are.  This is a fun stamp set bundle to play with as there are quite a few different poses to use.  I started with background from the Oh So Ombre designer paper pack(155225) from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue and went from there.

I’m playing along with The Paper Players this week with the challenge to use something new.  Well, this Kangaroo & Company bundle from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue is as new as it gets!

THE BEST DONKEY EVER

The best donkey ever!  I’m laughing while posting this as this Darling Donkeys stamp set is just the cutest ever!

Tell me you can’t laugh when you see this card – I dare you, lol!  I had fun colouring this cutie with our Stampin’ Blends and added the hearts to make it a “love” card!

This stamp set is a free choice from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue(page 4) when you spend $60.  It all starts tomorrow, January 5th when you can also order from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue!

I followed the layout from Freshly Made Sketches and added some texture to the card base with the Scripty Embossing folder.

ALL DAYS ARE BEAUTIFUL THAT BEGIN WITH YOU

“All days are beautiful that begin with you”!  This is the sentinment that I put on today’s card!

This simple message is to celebrate all of the women in our lives that support, protect and love us!  The whole idea for this card came from a combination of three challenges that I’m playing along with.  I don’t usually combine several challenges, but I wanted to keep things clean and simple and these three helped to make that happen.

The Paper Players Colour Challenge,

The SUO Challenge to celebrate women and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

I only took two stamp sets, lol, Floral Essence stamp set provided the sentiment and Butterfly Gala stamp set and matching punch provided that tiny butterfly!

BIRTHDAY BALLOONS FOR YOU

If it’s your birthday – have a happy one and enjoy some balloons too!

I received my order with the Special Day dies(153587) and used them right away for this card.  These dies work perfectly with the Special Someone stamp set(151643) and enable you to create several different scenes with the cute critters in the stamp set!

You could change up the theme of this card for Valentines day just by changing the sentiment.

SENSATIONAL YOU

Today’s card features the Sending You Thoughts Sale-A-Bration stamp set for a sensational you card.

I love all of the sentiments in this stamp set and did a little fancy masking to get the sentiment just the way I wanted it!  This card is filled with love and that is why I’m posting on The Paper Players “Love is in the Air” challenge.

The “another year of sensational you” is all one stamp, so I used scotch tape to mask off the words to make it easier to separate them for the card layout.  If you try this, make certain to clean the stamp after every use!

HAPPY HEARTS

Hi and welcome!  Today’s card is full of happy hearts for a sweet Valentine!

I took a piece from the most excellent package of From My Heart specialty designer series paper(151189) and created what looks like an optical elusion.  When I was setting it up to be edited I wasn’t sure if it was sitting straight or not, lol.  The strip of designer paper was cut at 3-1/4″ wide and 7-1/2″ long.  I used a pencil to draw the angled lines to measure 1-3/8″ at the top.  Then it was adhered on an angle across the card front and paper snips were used trim away the excess at either end.

The Meant To Be stamp set(148626) from last year has some beautiful dies to go with it so I made good use of them to add the interest and greeting at the bottom of the angled strip.  That’s it, a pretty card full of happy hearts for my special valentine.

Here’s the list of products used.
