Two more Valentine's Day cards

As promised, here are two more Valentine's Day cards.

I had so much fun creating this card because it was a real challenge.
Here are the Stampin' Up! Products I used for this card
* Rose Red card stock
* Blushing Bride card stock
* Love Blossoms DSP stack
* Pearls from the Love Blossoms Embellishment kit
* Rose Red bow from Love Blossoms Embellishment kit
* Pink half pearls from Love Blossoms Embellishment kit
* Bloomin' Love Thinlits dies
* Bloomin' Love Stamp set
* Rose Red Stampin' Write marker
* Melon Mambo Stampin' Write marker
* Garden Green Stamin' Write marker

Here is a peak of the inside of the card. 
I use Grovey Love stamp set as well as the Bloomin' Love stamp set from the 2016 Occasions catalog. 

Here is my second card
I saw a similar card like this on Pinterest. The original card used the Bird Builder punch to create the rose. But because of the new stamps and dies in the 2016 Occasions catalog by Stampin' Up! I was able to create a rose that really looks like a rose. 
Here is the list of products I used for this card
* Real Red card stock
* Whisper White card stock
* Basic Black card stock
Old Olive card stock
* Foil sheets (silver)
* Foil sheets (red)
* Boho Chic Embossing Folder
* Bird Builder punch
* Metellic Foil Doilies (gold)
* Cups & Kettle Framelits dies
* Rose Garden Thinlites dies
* Itty Bitty Accent punch pack (heart)

Thank you stopping by my blog to see my cards. I hope you are inspired to create your own Valentine's Day cards. Please leave me a comment.

Playing Catch-Up!

Wow, I just cannot believe how fast time flies even when you're not having fun. 

I had to go to a few appointments so I got a few days behind in posting my Valentine's Day cards each day. So now I'm going to make an attempt to catch-up from the 4th of February. I guess that means I'm four cards behind. LOL

OK, so here is a card I made a few days ago (actually before I started this count down) but I hope you like it just the same
This is a heart-shaped flip card. It didn't turn out the way I saw it in my head but after I was finished I kind of like it. 
This is what it looks like when it's opened. 
So let me tell you what I used to make this flip card.
On the front and the inside right side, I used the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper (pink) from the 2016 Sale-A-Bration catalog. This DSP is only available by purchasing at least $50 of Stampin' Up! Products and if you purchase before February 15, 2016. 
I also used the following:
* Blushing Bride Glimmer paper from the 2016 Occasions catalog 
* Dazzling Diamonds Glimmeer paper
* Basic Black card stock
* Whisper White card stock
* Bloomin' Heart Thinlits dies
* Hearts Collections Framelits dies (retired)

OK, now onto my second card. 
Although this is not actually a Valentine's Day card, you can convert it into one just by using a different stamp on the clouds.
OK, for this card, I used the following:

* Crumb Cake card stock (card base)
* Real Red card stock
* Soft Sky card stock
* Cloudy Day Embossing folder (retired)
* Whisper White card stock
* Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine
* Confetti Hearts Border punch
* Fine-Tip Glue Pen
* Beautiful Ride stamp set (2016 Occasions catalog)
* Sky is the Limit stamp set (2016 Sale-A-Bration catalog) Limit Time product
* Word Bubbles Framelits dies (retired) for the the clouds

So that's it for today. I will try to get two more post either tonight or tomorrow. 
If you have any questions or comments, please either leave me a comment or email me.

Thank you for visiting and Happying Stamping

February 8, is the last day for this Weekly Deals

Countdown to Valentine's Day - Day 3

Well, as promised here is my day #3  Valentine's Day card. 
I really enjoyed making this card. Here are the supplies I used

* Balloon Builders stamp set (heart shaped balloon)
* Friendly Wishes stamp set
* Teenuy Tiny Wishes stamp set
* Watermelon Wonder card stock and classic ink pad
* Blushing Bride card stock and classic ink pad
* Caplyso Coral card stock and classic ink pad
Whisper White card stock
* 1" Watermelon Wonder Stitched Satin ribbon
* Blushing Bride Baker's Twine
* Sweetheart punch
* Basic Black Stampin' Marker
* VersaMark ink pad
* Stampin' Emboss Powder - Black
* Embossing Buddy
* Heat Tool

First I glued all the layers starting with Watermelon Wonder on the bottom, followed with Blushing Bride an then Calypso Coral on top. The last layer is Whisper White, but first I stamped it repeatedly with the three colors of classic ink and the balloon shaped stamp. Once done, I used the Heat Tool to dry all the ink. I then used my Embossing buddy all over the entire card. I used VersaMark ink and the "Love You" stamp from the Friendly Wishes stamp set and stamped it in the center top portion of the card. I used the Black Embossing Powerl over the stamped image and used the Heat Tool to heat set the Black Embossing Powder.
I then used the Watermeon Wonder Stain ribbon and wrapped around the bottom portion of the card making sure to leave about 1/2" of the stamped balloons showing. I adhere the ribbon to the back of the card layers. 
I then adhere the layers onto a Whispere White card stock base (8-1//2" x 5-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4")

Now I know you know that Stampin' Up! Does not have a heart-shaped balloon punch so let me tell you how I made the heart shaped balloons. 
First, I used the Balloon Bouquet punch and Blushing Bride, Watermelon Wonder and Calypso Coral card stocks. Then I put the put the balloons into the Sweetheart punch (top part only) and punched out the top part of the heart shape. I did have to use my paper snips to make the tops of the heart a little more round because they come put a litte pointy. 
I used "Happy Valentine's Day" stamp from the Teen Tiny Wishes stamp set and the Basic Black Stampin' Marker, I inked up one word at a time and stamped it onto the heart-shaped balloons one word per balloon. I then used the Blushing Bride Baker's Twine and wrapped it around the bottom of the balloons and tied a knot and let the string hang down.
I used a few Stampin' Dimensionals to pop-up the two larger balloons and adhere all the balloons on the bottom left corner of the card.

There you have it, my Day 3 Valentine's Day card. 
Hope you like my card. Please leave me a comment and Happy Stamping!

I Guess I Goofed

Yesterday I posted Valentine's Day card as my countdown to Valentine's Day because I thought it was the 1st of Feburary but I discovered today that this is actually the 3rd of February so somewhere I lost a day. 

So, since today is the 3rd and not the 2nd, I guess I owe you all two Valentine's Day cards today. 

Here is my day 2 Valentiinel's Day card
This card is a Magical Marquee card. I had so much fun making this card. I've made a marquee card before but not like this one. First of all, this card is made with a belly band an I used some products from the Love Blossoms embellishment kit from the 2016 Occasions Stampin' Up! Catalog. 
This is what the card front looks like without the belly band. When you open the card, the marquee window (that's in a heart shape) will also open. 
This is what the inside of the card looks like. So you can see the heart shaped window is now opened and I stamped it with the heart from th Bloomin' Love stamp set. 
I use the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper stack along with Rose Red, Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake card stock. On the belly band I used the foil heart from the Love Blossoms Embellishment kit ass well as the Rose Red Bow ribbon on a gold paper clip. I also used the new Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper in the center. Inside the card, I used some of the string of pearls an Blushing Bride satin ribbon. I did have to use the retired Hearts Collections Framelits Dies, but how can you make a Valentine's Day without hearts? LOL

OK, that's it for now. I will post another Valentine's Day card after my iPad charges up. Please leave me a comment to let me know if you like the card or if you have any questions. 
Until next time, Happy Stamping!

My First One Sheet Wonder

I have often wondered what a 'One Sheet Wonder' meant, so after doing a little research of my own I discovered how fun it is to make cards (and other projects) using one sheet of Designer Series Paper (DSP).

So here is my very first One Sheet Wonder
This is my first sketch I made on a chipboard from a DSP package. I was trying to create cuts that were not all squares or rectangles so I included a few diamonds and tags in my sketch. However, I quickly discovered that it wasn't going to be so easy cutting out this  sketch, so this is what I ended up with
When I started to cut the 12"x12" DSP, I end up with these cuts and I thought 'OK, I can work with this'.
In addition to the ONE DSP, I used two Real Red, two Old Olive and two Smoky Slate card stock and one Whisper White as well as the Whisper White card based.

I couldn't believe I was able to make 17 cards. However, because I wanted to make one card using the Festive Flower Builder punch to make a poinsettia flower card, I used a little bit more Smoky Slate and Real Red card stock for a total of 18 cards. I know that you are really suppose to use only one stamp set to make all the cards but I used two. I used the 'Reason for the Season' stamp set only for the poinsettia card.

I had so much fun making these cards that I decide to offer a 'One Sheet Wonder' class. It turned out great and they were amazed at how many they could make using one 12"x12" DSP in a short amount of time.

Here are individual pictures of my cards so you can see them better;

Supplies used:
  • Lots of Joy stamp set (139468 C) $19.00
  • Reason for the Season stamp set (139730 P) $21.00
  • Real Red (102482), Old Olive (100702) and Smoky Slate (131202) card stock $7.00 each
  • Real Red (126949), Old Olive (126953) and Smoky Slate (31179) Classic Stampin' pads $6.50 each
  • Basic Rhinestones (119246) $5.00
  • White Perfect Accents (138416) $5.00
  • Snowflake Elements (139638) $6.00
  • 1/8" Striped Ribbon (139615) $8.00
  • 1/8" Silver Ribbon (132137) $5.00
  •  Festive Flower Builder punch (139682) $18.00
  • Decorative Label punch (120907) $18.00
  • 1-3/4" Circle punch (119850) $18.00
  • 1-3/8" Circle punch (119860) $16.00
  • 1" Circle punch (119868) $13.00
  • 1" Square punch (124094) $16.00
  • Tree punch (135859) $18.00
  • Tree Builder punch (138295) $18.00
Wow! That's a lot of punches. LOL
