Sealed with Love Card - January Card Club

We made this fun Valentine's Day card at my Card Club workshops this month featuring the Sending Love Suite from the Occasions Catalog.  Isn't it pretty???

The Sending Love Suite includes the Sealed with Love Bundle (Sealed with Love Stamp Set and Love Notes Framelits Dies) shown above.  What a fun assortment of stamps and framelits! 

I also used the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack from the Occasions Catalog.   These sample cards have different patterns to show how you can mix and match these fun designs. 

For this particular card I chose a different sentiment stamp which is also included in the Sealed with Love Stamp Set.  I heat embossed it with the Gold Emboss Powder which makes a perfect accent with the Gold Foil Paper

The Love Notes Framelits Dies includes a cool border die with 6 hearts in a row which you can use it anywhere on your paper to die cut.  To die cut the right side of the card front, I scored at 1" and placed the border die on the scoreline and then ran it through my Big Shot.  I love this border die!  It's so fun that you can pop up those pretty hearts or keep them flat if you like.

I love this color combination - Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla and a touch of Gold from the Gold Glimmer Paper.  I also used a piece of Shimmery White Card Stock for the sentiment to show it better over the gorgeous Lace Doily.  By the way, did you know the Lace Doilies are printed Very Vanilla on one side and white on the other side?  Clever!!!

Sealed with Love Happy Valentine's Day Card

Have you ever felt stressed when making a project?  You don't know where or how to start?  Stampin' Up! has created some Product Suites that make easier to combine stamps, paper, cutting tools, and embellishments.  Products in the suites work perfectly together to help you create some amazing handmade projects without the stress!!!

This card features some products from the Sending Love Suite.  I combined the Sealed with Love Stamp Set, Love Notes Framelits, Sending Love Designer Series Paper and Sending Love Embellishments.  

The Love Notes Framelits are such a fun set of love notes/envelopes, hearts, arrows and more.  My favorite is the heart border die.  I adhered a strip of red patterned paper to the inside of my card to show off the heart border die.  Each of these hearts pops out to make it dimensional.  So cute!!!

Stamps - Sealed with Love
Paper - Soft Sky Card Stock, Real Red Card Stock, Shimmery White, Sending Love DSP, Gold Foil Paper, Red Glimmer Paper

Here's to Cheers Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone!  Hope you had a great holiday season.  It was not my intention to take a month off from my blog but I am happy to say that I was able to take care of a few projects around the house that I wanted to do for a long time.  It's a great way to start the year off!!!

Here is a beautiful card featuring the Here's to Cheers Stamp Set.  I wanted the card to be shiny for the new year's celebration so I heat-embossed the sentiment with the Silver Emboss Powder on a piece of Shimmery White Card Stock and then adhered it to a scallop circle die-cut out of Silver Foil Paper.  The wine bottle/glass image is stamped with the Archival Basic Black ink on a piece of Shimmery White Card Stock

The pretty circle die-cut piece is made using with one of the Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies.  I first die cut a piece of Silver Foil Paper with one of the Layering Circles Framelits and then die cut this piece with the detailed rectangle die.  I really like the die!  Don't you??

I have some photos of our property to share with you.  These were taken this morning.  We had about 3" of new snow overnight.  Both of our ponds are covered with snow.  I had to shovel some snow to make a way to my studio today:)

Here is a photo of our big pond... I just hope my dogs will stay away from there.  They have never attempted to go to the island in this situation but it looks closer than normal with so much snow there.  Brrr....

Here is a photo of our dock.  No fishing today! 

Thank you for stopping by today.  Have a great 2017!!!
