Today’s post is another Stampin Up Picture Perfect #140520 card that features the Picture Perfect Stamp set in the Occasions catalog The images in this set really come to life because of the 2 step stamping technique and then heat embossed to add more textureer. The swirls from the Everything Eleanor #131987 added classic elegance to the all occasion card.

Today’s post is a gorgeous brayered card that I received from Cammie for Valentine’s Day but it would be a fantastic pick me up card for any occasion. To make the seashell heart, Cammie stamped 2 conch shells from the now retired By the Seashore stamp set twice and the heart is embedded in her beach scene. The white sea foam was created using the resist technique with the Gorgeous Grunge #130514 stampset and her white gel pen. The sentiment is from the Picture Perfect # 140520 stamp set.
Today’s card is a simple card that can be used for any occasion and features the retired vellum from last years Stampin Up Sale-a-bration. This card is sure to spread happiness to anyone who receives it! The 2 color blocked rectangles help the card pop. The red layer features a row of hearts cut using the hearts border in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits die #137547. The sentiment is from the Stampin Up Lovely Amazing You #140594 stamp set.
Today’s post is from our sister Blair. She loves to craft but never can find the time to make and mail a card but give her a competitive competition and she is all over it! Her office is holding a Valentine box decorating competition. So Blair pulled out her supplies and went to town creating this darling sock monkey box. Hope Blair shares the others in the competition and keeps us posted on the winner. Good luck, but more importantly I hope your box is full of handmade Valentines and treats!
Happy Valentines Day. Cammie made the cutest of cute Valentines using the Stampin Up Beautiful Ride #140738 stamp set. The bug car rests on a Washi Tape roadway and the tree is creatively constructed using the now retired Joyful Season stamp set for the tree trunk and the Definitely Dahlia #139911 for the tree.
Another version of Cammie’s Beautiful Ride and her fantastic brayering skills.
Love is truly bloomin with todays post that features products from the Stampin Up Love Blossoms product suite in the Stampin Up Occasions catalog. I started with a crumb cake card base and randomly stamped the floral image from the Bloomin’ Love #140643 stamp set. I then began layering items starting with a strip of the Love Blossoms #1404548 DSP paper stack. I then added a lacy heart using the Bloomin Heart Thinlits Die #140621 and a heart punched from Love Blossoms DSP using the Sweet Heart punch #133786. The banner is stamped from the Bloomin Love set and then hand cut out and the little layered flowers are from the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits #140621.
Today’s post is a sweet alternate way to use my January Cute Conversations My Paper Pumpkin Kit. Rather than making the heart garland or treats as proposed in the kit, I decided to pair the big hearts with the Stampin Up It’s My Party DSP paper stack # 140552 from the Occasions catalog and the Cherry On Top #138443 DSP from the 2015-2016 annual catalog. The hello greeting is from the Hello #141240 stamp set in Stampin Up Sale-a-bration catalog and the You’re Sweet sentiment is from the Cute Conversations paper pumpkin kit.
The Hello stamp set is free during sale-a-bration for every $50 spend in merchandise, you earn free product from the SAB catalog. However the Hello stamp set and a few other items will be replaced with new items on Feb 16th so be sure to check out the limited SAB items and stock up.
Another one of my sweet Valentine cards is featuring the Love Blossoms #140548 DSP Paper stack and the Bloomin’ Love #140643 Stampin Up photopolymer stamp set. To hide the seam I added a row of Blushing Bride #140550 glimmer hearts punched using the Stampin Up Itty Bitty Heart Punch #133787. This card showcases just how perfect all the Stampin Up products work together and takes the guess work out of trying to match cardstock to DSP and ink!
For today’s post I am sharing one of my many Valentine card designs that features the Go Wild #138441 DSP paper stack from Stampin Up. I used the Stampin Up Sweetheart punch #133786 to punch hearts from several of the Go Wild papers and the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer cardstock #135315. I added a Wild banner created using the Banner Triple Punch #138292 and the sentiment from the Groovy Love #134246 to create a wild and non traditional Valentine card.
