Bubble Over!

If you are looking for something unique, and products that  can be used for masculine cards as well, the bubble Over Stamp Set and coordinating Framelit Dies are perfect.  I often struggle on making cards for our male friends and in addition to these products being good for anyone's birthday or thank you card, making the bottles into beer bottles is perfect for my masculine cards.

What is even better you can get the coordinating Bubble & Fizz Designer Series Paper for FREE during Sale-a-bration as it is one of the choices in the Sale-a-bration catalog that can be yours for FREE with a $50.00 order.

The video below, done by Stampin' Up! shows you how cute these products are and how nice they go together.

More than Chocolate!

Since chocolate seems to be a nice Valentine gift, I thought the More than Chocolate stamp set would be an appropriate set to use for my Valentine card.  The heart looks like a box of chocolates all wrapped up ready to give to that special someone.

The inside sentiment is appropriate too!

In addition to stamping my chocolates onto my heart, I embossed my Real Red Card Stock layer with the Sweetheart Embossing Folder and added my "I Love You" sentiment which is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

Lots to Love

The Sure Do Love You Stamp Set and coordinating Lots to Love Box Framelit Dies can be purchased together in a bundle to save you 10%.  I used some of the framelits and stamps to create my Valentine Card below.  I like the layering of the hearts and the embossing which made the large heart and layer stand out.

The Whisper White Layer and the large Valentine were embossed with one of the embossing folders from the Petal Pair set.  These are small embossing folders, only 6 1/2" x 2 1/4" so if you want to emboss a whole layer, just run it through your Big Shot a few times, moving it each time to a different spot.  I also punched some leaves using my Leaf Punch which is one of the items being carried over from the Holiday Catalog.


The sentiment for the inside of my card is from the Flourishing Phrases and Teeny Tiny Wishes  Stamp Sets. There were several of my sets from the Annual Catalog which had nice sentiments for Valentine Cards.  Don't forget to check your sets to see what you might be missing.

The Party Pandas stamp set can be yours for free with any $50 order before shipping and tax during Sale-a-bration.  The pandas make great cards for many occasions and I thought he would make a cute Valentine Card for my granddaughter.

I embossed my Real Red Card Stock with the Sweetheart Embossing Folder and then cut out a heart with a Sweet & Sassy Framelit.  I also added some Myths & Magic Washi Tape to the top and bottom of the layer before adhering it to my card.  I stamped my panda in the opening to finish my card. 

I used the cut out piece of the heart and placed it on the inside of my card and stamped my sentiment directly on it.

Happy Wishes

The Happy Wishes Stamp Set is one of the free items you can select through Sale-a-bration.  Something different this year is that this item requires $100 in sales instead of $50.   It is one of my favorite Sale-a-bration items and has 16 stamps and comes in either wood or clear, and the sentiments are perfect for so many cards, and I love how you can color it in and have it coordinate with your ribbon and card stock.

I layered my card with a piece of  Petal Passions Designer Series Paper and tied a bow using the new Berry Burst Metallic Ribbon.  My In-Color markers were used to fill in my flowers, and I added a Glitter Enamel Dot for a bit more embellishment.  Such a quick card to make, and with the large sentiment and just a touch of flowers under the word happy I think it really is a nice touch for an anniversary card.
