Amour

Hello! Today’s card features products from the Parisian Blossoms mega-suite and it is for Valentine’s Day. There are two bundles in the suite and I used both of them for this card. I especially love the Eiffel Tower images. Over the years, Stampin’ Up! has included images of the Eiffel Tower in other stamp sets, however, I think this is the best one of all – it is tall and elegant!

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base: Cut piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11,” score and fold in half.
  • Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder, run through your embossing machine. Adhere to card front.
  • Die cut the Eiffel Tower out of a piece of a Black Foil Sheet using the die from the Parisian Dies set. Adhere to card front. Die cut “Amour” out of a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock using the die from the same set. I had originally planned on using Cherry Cobbler but it didn’t show up as well as I thought it would as there didn’t seem to be enough contrast. In the end, I really like how the Flirty Flamingo looks! Adhere to the lower part of the tower. I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen for this.
  • Using the single flower image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set, stamp flowers with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Cherry Cobbler and Flirty Flamingo cardstock and cut out with the die from the Cherry Blossoms Die set. I like to use an odd number in groupings so decided on three flowers for each of the two groups. Arrange them on the card and glue them down with Multipurpose Glue so that you have some wiggle room to move them around until they are positioned to your liking.
  • I used a few gems from the From My Heart Faceted Gems in the From My Heart suite for a touch of bling.
  • For the inside of the card I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and stamped the Valentine’s greeting from the Meant to Be stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink. This set was in the 2019 Occasions catalog and was carried over to the 2019-2020 Annual catalog. It is a lovely set and has a fantastic set of dies, Stitched Be Mine, that were also carried over. I used the Stamparatus to partially position the large blossom image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set and stamped it with the Tuxedo Black ink.

Forever Blossoms Valentine’s Day Card

Hello! Today’s card features products from the beautiful Parisian Blossoms suite and is another card that we recently made in my Valentine’s Day class. This is such an elegant suite of products, so soft looking and pretty too!

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut piece of Petal Pink cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score and fold in half.
  • Cut 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of paper from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series papers and adhere to cardbase.
  • Stamp blossom image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on piece of Whisper White cardstock. Color image with Stampin’ Blends. I used Petal Pink and Cherry Cobbler Blends for the flowers and Soft Sea Foam Blends for the leaves. Die cut with coordinating die from the Cherry Blossoms Dies set.
  • Stamp the “love” sentiment with Cherry Cobbler ink on a small scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. Cut heart image with one of the elongated dies from the Stitched Be Mine Dies, pictured on page 195 in the Annual Catalog.
  • Die cut large Petal Pink scalloped heart frame from the Stitched Be Mine Die set. You can save the heart piece from the inside of the frame for use in another project.
  • To finish off the front of the card, use either Multipurpose Liquid Glue or the Fine Tip Glue Pen to add adhesive to the scalloped heart and adhere to card. Center the heart with the “love” greeting inside the frame and adhere. Position the floral piece along the left side of the frame and adhere.

For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Cut piece of Parisian Blossoms DSP at 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to left side. Stamp the two sentiments from the Forever Blossoms stamp set with Cherry Cobbler ink and adhere piece to card.
