Jar of Hearts a Flutter Valentine Card

Hearts a Flutter Jar of Hearts card

I am so excited about this Jar of Hearts valentine card made with the outline heart from the Hearts A Flutter stamp set and, of course, the Perfectly Preserved jar stamp with the coordinating Cannery Set framelit dies.

The title of this post reminds me of the Wheel of Fortune category – is it called ‘before and after’?  Jar of Hearts and Hearts a Flutter to make Jar of Hearts a Flutter.

Here’s another valentine project video for you!  In the video I explain how I made the jar and the chalkboard background for this card.  Enjoy!  The supply list is below.

Clean and Simple Secret Garden Flower Dies Stamping

bloomin' marvelous secret garden card

More clean and simple collage stamping in this greeting card created with the Stampin’ Up! Secret Garden stamp and flowers die bundle and the FREE Bloomin’ Marvelous set available during Sale-a-bration with a $50 product purchase.

I stamped this on yummy Shimmery White cardstock.  It’s hard to photograph but if you look closely, you can see the shimmer!  And using the framelit dies made masking and layering these flowers super easy.  (You can watch the video below to see how!)

bloomin' marvelous secret garden card flag

I tried stamping the black sentiment directly over the flowers, but it didn’t show up the way I liked so I stamped it on a piece of vellum to layer over the top.  Using the vellum allowed the thought to stand out more without completely covering the flower design.  A perfect solution!

Here is the Card Recipe:
(All supplies from Stampin’ Up! Click on the link to visit my store for product pictures, details & ordering.)
SAB: Bloomin’ Marvelous wood-mount #129651 clear-mount #129654
Stamps: Secret Garden stamp and framelit die bundle wood-mount #129141 clear-mount #129144,
Ink: Baja Breeze #126960, Elegant Eggplant #126969, Melon Mambo #126948, Black StazOn #101406
Cardstock: Shimmery White #101910, Vellum #101856, Melon Mambo #115320
Extras: Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack #118309,  Pearls #119247, Pink Pirouette Taffeta Ribbon #122981, Glue Dots #103683

And here’s the video to show you how to quickly make this card using the flower framelit dies to mask!

Cross My Heart Valentine Card and Video

cross my heart pink & black card

 I love the crossword puzzle look in the Cross My Heart stamp and was anxious to make a simple valentine card with the I love you puzzle and the adorable little elephants!

Here’s another Valentine card video tutorial!  (If you can’t see the video in your email or feed, just click to the post to view.)  A few years ago our dog chewed up the end of my heat tool, but the darn thing keeps working so I keep using it.  I need it to stop working because I need a good excuse to buy the new heat tool, which is AWESOME.

Using the heart from the More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper made this project extra special and easy.
