Happy Galentine’s Day!

Hello! Today’s cards feature the Hearts & Kisses Bundle. When I saw this bundle in the mini catalog, as a woman that loves lipstick and feels naked when I’m not wearing it, I knew I had to purchase it! I also thought that it would make great cards to send to my gal pals to celebrate Galentine’s Day! As I’m writing this post, I’ve already heard back from a few of them to say how much they loved receiving their cards! One of my friends has a Valentine’s Day birthday and another has a birthday on February 17 so I used a birthday greeting for those two cards.

Here is how I made the cards.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Real Red cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut piece of DSP at 4″ x 5 1/4″. I used From My Heart Specialty DSP from the 2020 Spring Mini Catalog, now retired. Adhere to card front.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ and run through your die cutting machine with the largest rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.
  • Stamp the lipstick streak image from the Hearts & Kisses stamp set with Flirty Flamingo ink at the top and bottom of the die cut piece, stamping off first, before stamping onto the cardstock. For the birthday card I stamped the Galentine’s Day greeting with Real Red ink in between the stamped streaks. For the Galentine’s Day card I used the Hello Fabulous greeting from the Dressed to Impress stamp set.
  • Stamp two lips with Flirty Flamingo ink, punch out with the Kiss Punch and adhere on top of the streaks. Embellish with three Resin Hearts. Adhere piece to card front.
  • For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. For the birthday card I stamped it with the Happy Birthday greeting from the Happy Thoughts stamp set and I used the Happy Galentine’s Day greeting for the rest of the cards. I stamped the greetings and the xoxo with Real Red ink. Stamp the lipstick with Flirty Flamingo ink. Adhere to inside.

Hello! Today I’m sharing another Valentine’s Day card that was one of the projects in my January class to go. It features the True Love Designer Series Paper.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Real Red cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut piece of the True Love DSP with the stripes at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card front.

  • Cut piece of Basic White cardstock at 2 1/4″ x 2 1/2″. Cut a piece of an Adhesive Sheet the same size and adhere to cardstock. Using the “Love” die from the Always Dies, run through your die cutting machine. Adhere to bottom of the Basic Black rectangle.
  • Select one of the double flowers from a sheet of the True Love DSP. Color the flowers with Real Red light and dark Stampin’ Blends. Color leaves with Mossy Meadow light and dark Stampin’ Blends. Fussy cut and adhere to Basic Black rectangle. Adhere several white Resin Hearts from the Snail Mail suite. Adhere Basic Black piece to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp greeting with Real Red ink. You can use any of the greetings from the stamp sets in the Love You Always. I used the “Happy Heart Day” greeting from the Arrange a Wreath stamp set. Adhere to inside of card.

Flower & Field-Kylie’s Training Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for February. I’m part of a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world that participate in Kylie’s program for building our businesses. The theme for this year is thank you cards that we make as a way to show appreciation to our customers. Please be sure to click on the names in the list at the end of this post to hop around and view the beautiful projects posted by so many talented stampers.

Today’s card showcases the pretty Flower & Field Designer Series Paper, one of the Sale-A-Bration items you can earn for free with a $50 order. This is an easy layout that makes DSP the star of the show.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Just Jade cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, fold in half and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut a piece of Flower & Field DSP at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Cut in half on the diagonal by lining up opposite corners along the cutting track of the paper trimmer. Once you make the cut, without pulling the two pieces apart, gently turn the piece around so that you are now cutting the two other opposite corners. You have now cut out an “X” and can pull the triangles apart.
  • For this card I decided to use both sides of the DSP, however, you can mix and match with other contrasting pieces of DSP. You would just cut another piece of DSP at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and repeat the cutting process for making the “X.”
  • Adhere one set of triangles , matching the points in the center of the card front. Adhere the second set of triangles and space them so that some of the card base shows in between.
  • Stamp greeting from the Heal Your Heart stamp set, another Sale-A-Bration item, with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on scrap piece of So Saffron cardstock. Run through your die cutting & embossing machine with one of the labels from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
  • Die cut two sets of the smallest set of leaves from the Pierced Blooms Dies, a fabulous set of dies in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Adhere the leaves to opposite sides of the label with glue dots. Adhere label to center of card front.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp the smaller image from the Corner Bouquet stamp set with Just Jade ink in the lower left corner and adhere to inside of card. I chose not to stamp a greeting in order to write a personalized note.

Always Valentine’s Day Card

Hello! Today I’m featuring a Valentine’s Day card that we did in my January class to go. It uses dies and an embossing folder and the only stamping is the greeting on the inside of the card. I’ve been seeing cards with a Basic Black, Basic White and Magenta Madness color combination that I think is very striking so here is what I came up with.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Cut piece of Basic Black cardstock at 4 1/2″ x 11″, score at 5 ½”, fold and crease with bone folder.  Cut piece of True Love Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card front.
  • Cut piece of Basic White cardstock at 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″. Run it through your die cutting and embossing machine with the Lace 3D embossing folder, centering the design so that it is even on both sides.  Adhere to a piece of Magenta Madness cardstock cut at 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.
  • Back a scrap piece of Basic Black cardstock with part of an adhesive sheet that is cut to size and run through your die cutting & embossing machine with the Always die from the Always Die set.  Cut a 2 1/2″ square piece of Magenta Madness cardstock and back with a piece of adhesive sheet. Run it through the machine with the second largest scalloped heart from the Stitched Be Mine die set.  Adhere the heart to the embossed Basic White piece.  Adhere to the Magenta Madness cardstock.  Adhere the Always die cut to the piece and then adhere piece to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • You can use any greeting from your stamp sets for the inside greeting. I mixed sentiments from two different stamp sets. I used “In My Heart” from the Field of Flowers stamp set and the “Happy Valentine’s Day” greeting from the Forever Lovely stamp set, which is now retired. I lined both of them up on an acrylic block so I could stamp them both at the same time and stamped them with Magenta Madness ink on a piece of Basic White cardstock cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Adhere to inside of card.
