Lovely Lily Pad

Most of the products used for today's card were made using FREE products that I earned during Sale-a-bration.  The Designer Series Paper is called Lily Impressions , the Stamp Set, Lovely Lily Pad, and the Lily Pad Dies are all Sale-a-bration products.  

I used Bermuda Bay Card Stock for my card base and a layer of Grapefruit Grove under my DSP.  To get my lily impression, I first cut it out with Whisper White Card Stock, stamped the detailed flower using Grapefruit Grove Ink, and then then turned the stamp around to the smooth side.  Next I inked that side of the stamp, stamped it off once onto a piece of scrap paper, and then stamped it over my detailed flower I stamped previously.  

Usually I don't die cut first, but for this stamp it seemed to work better.  I also stamped off my ink when I used the flat side of the flower so my ink would be lighter so you could see the details of the flower better.

My sentiment is from the Painted Glass Stamp Set #148220, and I punched this out using my Tailored Tag Punch #145667.

Lovely Lily Pad #152288 - Free with $50 Purchase
Lily Pad Dies #152325 - Free with $100 Purchase

Lilly Impressions #152284 - FREE with $50 purchase

Dino Days Valentine

Another set from the Annual Catalog that makes a nice children's Valentine Card is Dino Days.  I combined that with the new paper in the mini catalog to create the above card.  

The sentiment worked great too, and I like when I can combine sets that I already have with new product to get the most out of my supplies.

Wildly Happy Valentine

I used the Wildly Happy Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog, and paired it up with sentiments and paper from the new mini catalog for today's Valentine Card.  I like to use sets I already have and incorporate them into my new products, and I remind my stampers not to forget their prior purchases when we are so excited to create with our new things.

I  used my Smoky Slate Blends to give my pandas a bit more color, and also sponged some Real Red ink around my punched sentiment to make it stand out a bit more on the background paper of hearts.  I went with a Basic Black card base as well, changing things up a bit from the standard red or pink valentine cards.

It's time to start making your Valentine Cards.  I will be preparing cards all week for the ladies who come to my stamp classes, combining my new stamps and accessories from the occasions catalog, as well as using products from the Annual Catalog.  

Here is the first card.  

Using a piece of From My Heart Designer Series Paper for my background, I added coordinating layers of card stock, added my sentiment, some new red ribbon, and a Heart Doily.  So easy to make when your products coordinate, and with the From My Heart Suite Bundle that is now available, you have everything you need with just one product number.  Purchasing this bundle will also qualify you for one FREE Sale-a-bration products.

Peaceful Poppies Suite Video

The new Peaceful Poppies Suite from Stampin' Up!s 2020 mini catalog has a lot to offer! It comes with two stamp and die bundles, designer series paper, multiple embellishments, and beautiful poppy elements. Each piece is designed for coordination and beauty to give you an amazing crafting experience. You can see more about it by watching this video made by Stampin' Up!.

You can tell it is a favorite of Stampin' Up! too.  The front cover of the new mini catalog shows you a lot of beautiful cards made with these products. 

In addition, if you purchase this suite you would automatically qualify for 2 Sale-abration products and be on your way to creating beautiful projects. 

I have been busy during the holidays taking a much needed break from my stamping to spend time with my family, but starting today I will be back to my craft room and should have projects and cards using some of these beautiful products soon.

The new mini catalog goes live today, and if you are looking for an easy way to make some Valentine treats the From My Heart Suite Bundle has it all.

I made these little treats using the Heart Foil Tins, Heart Doilies, and the Heartfelt Stamp Set and one of the coordinating punches.  The tin fit 4 Lindt Chocolate Truffles and it can be used again after the candy is taken and makes a nice little container.

If you don't want all of the products in the Suite, you can purchase the stamp set and punches together in a bundle to save you 10%.

Don't forget that during Sale-a-bration once your order reaches $50 you can select one free product from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  

Not all of the products in the suite were used, but the numbers for the products are listed below for your convenience.
