IS IT TOO EARLY FOR A VALENTINE CARD

Is it too early for a Valentine card?  Time does go by quickly so I decided to get creative with the new Special Someone photopolymer stamp set from the Occasions mini catalogue.

The images in this set are so cute and you can create them with the 2-Step stamping method.  I also wanted to show off some of the beautiful designs in the From my Heart Specialty designer paper so pulled this sketch posted by TGIF challenges.

We Canadian SU Demonstrators are creating Valentines for our Veterans and this is one of the cards that I will be sending.

Here’s the list of products used.

INTRODUCING THE PEACEFUL POPPIES SUITE

Have you checked out the Peaceful Poppies Suite yet?  There are so many beautiful pieces to it that it’s hard to list them all so I created a simple card to show you some of these lovely products.

It starts with the Painted Poppies bundle paired up with the Peaceful Moments stamp set(for the greeting).  The background paper is from the beautiful Peaceful Poppies Designer series paper – there are many more beautiful pages as well so make sure to check it all out!

This lovely simple sketch from Freshly Made Sketches was my starting point.

Here’s the list of products that I used.  Note – one of the colours in this Suite is Poppy Parade!  So appropriate isn’t it?

TRY A LITTLE SUNSHINE

Hi, I’m back with the Honey Bee bundle again!  Because a little bee-enfused sunshine and happiness seems like a good way to end this week!

There are so many beautiful designs in the Golden Honey Specialty designer paper and they just have to be shown off!  I matched up the honeycomb design with a little piece done in Pineapple Punch behind the hive.  Just drag the ink pad across a piece of whisper white cardstock and the die does the rest!  The flowers were coloured “direct to stamp” with Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Markers.

Here’s the full list of products used.

HONEY BEE BUNDLE

The Honey Bee Bundle is another stamp set that I smiled at while browsing through the new 2020 Occasions Mini Catalogue.  And, the matching dies make it so easy to create a busy bee hive!

There’s also the beautiful Golden Honey Specialty designer paper from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue to amp things up to a whole new level!  I used a piece for the background on this card.  You can earn this beautiful paper pack with just a $60 purchase!

I wanted to play along with The Paper Players first challenge of the new year.  So this card is the “something new” that I’m playing along with!

ALL OF ME LOVES ALL OF YOU

All of Me Loves All of You – what a beautiful sentiment for that special someone!  And I think that this card will make a lovely Valentine greeting with that beautiful sentiment.

I’ve been using the Forever Blossoms bundle(153781) again – I just love everything about it and the flowers are so easy to colour!

FOREVER BLOSSOMS

Hello and welcome to you!  I just can’t stop using the Forever Blossoms bundle – it’s so very beautiful especially with the matching designer paper!

Just look at those beautiful flowers on that piece of designer paper!  So I pulled the Pool Party from the background and stamped several blooms with the Pool Party ink and added the leaves stamped with the Silvery Shimmer Delicata ink(it’s retiring as of tomorrow).  The dies that match the Forever Blossoms stamp set make it so easy to cut out those pretty blooms.

Along the left edge, in the background it a piece of braided border made using the new Braided Border Punch that’s in the 2020 Occasions Mini Catalogue.  Make sure to check it out on page 29!

CHERISH EVERY MOMENT

On this first day of 2020 I encourage you to cherish every moment of every day!  We’re starting a new decade – do you have goals that you want to achieve?  My goals are to cherish every moment and learn and grow from them!

So I made this card that will sit prominently to remind me of those goals!

I used a piece of the beautiful Parisian Blossoms Specialty designer paper for the background and the matching Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder for the vellum cardstock!  All that was needed to finish it off was that beautiful sentiment and a tiny flower bud.

Following along with the layout from Freshly Made Sketches was perfect for showcasing that lovely paper!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2020

Tonight we usher in the year 2020 – a brand new decade of possibilities!

What better way to say Happy New Year than with this soft and pretty card.  It was created with the new Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp using the Silvery Shimmer Delicata Metallic ink!  I added interest by stamping a couple more images and then cutting out the flower to layer.  The silver strips add an extra bit of interest as well.

Here’s a side view of that popped-up flower.

I used the layout posted by CAS(E) this sketch and had a lot of fun with it as you can see.
