Last Minute Valentine!

Hello Creative Friends!

The day of hearts and flowers is so close, are you ready? You’re not? Well, I have a super easy card you could make in no time!

It doesn’t get more simple than this! All you need to make this card is Paper, Ink and Stamps! I used two stamps from the Meant to Be stamp set. The sentiment was stamped in Flirty Flamingo and the heart was stamped in Real Red. The Designer Series Paper is part of the All My Love Designer Series Paper pack and it was gives this card the wow factor even though it is such a simple card to make. The DSP was cut at 3 1/8 X 5 1/2. I added a small strip of Flirty Flamingo to make a transition color between the card base and the DSP. The card base is Real Red card stock. The card base is cut to 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4. I added a layer of Real Red behind the stamped heart. The dimensions of this layer is 2 3/8 X 2 3/8. The Whisper White square for the stamped image is 2 1/4 X 2 1/4. I popped up the sentiment using dimensionals and added a little bit of Clear Wink of Stella on the flower part of the heart.

You could easily make this card with any patterned paper you have that has a Valentine theme. One interesting fact is that the Designer Series Paper actually has Lovely Lipstick as the color in the hearts, but Real Red still looks great with it too! I love how versatile Stampin’ Up! makes their colors and papers!!

I hope you are getting all your Valentine treats ready to go and enjoying some crafty fun too. Come back soon for inspiration!

Supplies Used:

A Valentine using the Meant to Be stamp set and Be Mine Stitched Framelits

Hello Creative Friends!

I am back to share a lovely and simple Valentine you could give to just about anyone. In fact, it wouldn’t even have to be a Valentine. It could also be used to lift someone’s spirits or make them feel extra special.

The star of this card is the beautiful Be Mine Stitched Framelits. There are many different heart shapes and sizes in the set. I used a plain heart to cut out the pretty All My Love Designer Series paper and then I used a stitched heart to cut from the Sale-A-Bration freebie paper. This is the Foil paper in Lovely Lipstick. Isn’t it goregous? The tiny little hearts I scattered around were also cut using another die from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits set. The Just for You sentiment is part of the Meant to Be Stamp set. I used a smaller heart to cut out the sentiment and as you can see it just barely fits! I used the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits to cut out a large background page in Soft Seafoam card stock. I added some 1/8 inch Grosgrain Ribbon in Lovely Lipstick. I layered all of this on Crumb Cake cardstock.

Now is truly one of the best times to shop for the great items used to make this card. Not only do you have wonderful supplies for many occasions, but you get FREE products for every $50.00 you spend! Remember, Sale-A-Bration only lasts through March 31st and sometimes they run out of the items they are offering in the Sale-A-Bration catalog. Once those are gone, they are truly gone!
