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!)
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!
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.
And embossing the I Love You on the Pink Pirouette cardstock gives it a crisp, clean look.
I decided to have a little fun making valentines with the Hearts A Flutter stamps and die bundle and the Stampin’ Up! note cards and envelopes. This Valentines note card is made in the collage style with In-Colors Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit and Pool Party with a little Basic Gray for a hip color palette.
The note cards and envelopes come in a pack of 20 which is perfect for making Valentine cards! And you can simplify the card by just stamping a heart inside of the larger heart instead of die-cutting the embossed More Amore designer series paper heart to add to the middle. Set out several cards at once and stamp each step for easy mass production.
I’ve created a video tutorial to show you how to make these cards. (If you are viewing this in email you will have to go to the post to view the video.) And be sure to readto the bottom for a special Sale-A-Bration offer exclusive to Stamping Julie customers.
I love this Stampin’ Up! Blissful Bird stamp that coordinates with the Bird Builder punch, but I hadn’t used it yet. So I combined it here with Ciao, Baby! and the fun Sale-a-bration Petite Curly Label punch to make this wedding card. And, by the way, I love Ciao, Baby! Not only the stamp set – I just love saying the name! Ciao, Baby!
I used the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper as an inspiration for the colors. I stamped the Blissful Bird stamp twice – once in Pretty in Pink and once with Regal Rose – to create the bird. I stamped it a third time with Lucky Limeade to punch out the branch. I wanted a softer look so I stamped the Lucky Limeade off once before stamping and punching.
Love from the Ciao, Baby! stamp set was stamped with Pretty in Pink and punched out with the Petite Label Punch available for FREE with a qualifying Sale-a-bration order. I stamped ‘bride & groom’ on Very Vanilla cardstock with the Sweet Essentials stamp set in Island Indigo. Again, because I wanted a softer look I stamped if off once before stamping on the card.
The heart is punched from the Silver Glimmer paper. (Learn how to get a free pack during Sale-a-bration.) I love the little heart in the birds beak. Don’t you? I ran the So Saffron pattern paper from the Tea for Two dsp pack through the Big Shot in the new SAB Vine Street Embossing Folder (also available for FREE with a qualifying SAB order).
This Bloomin’ Marvelous Heart Butterfly card features a couple of Sale-A-Bration goodies, including the Bloomin’ Marvelous stamp set and the ribbon from the Sycamore Street Pack. This card also features a couple of products from the new, beautiful Spring catalog, the butterfly from the Cross My Heart stamp set, the Honeycomb Embossing Folder, the Pool Party Core’dination cardstock and the heart from the Hearts a Flutter Framelit Dies set.
The Silver Glimmer Paper and Island Indigo butterflies are cut with the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die. I ran the largest butterfly back through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots Folder. The Red Glimmer Paper heart is trimmed out with the heart from the Hearts a Flutter Framelit Dies set.
The butterfly is adhered to a Two Tags Die cut tag. I stamped the Bloomin’ Marvelous sentiment on the tag with Early Espresso ink. After I ran the Pool Party Core’dination cardstock through the Big Shot with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder, I stamped the butterfly from the Cross My Heart stamp set in a few of the honeycombs and added a little rhinestone.
The butterfly antennae were snipped out with the stem from the Bird Builder Punch. The smallest of rhinestones were added to the end of the antennae.
