Heart Happiness

Valentine with a fun Surprise inside

Another valentine card made and ready to be given to someone sweet. I used the Heart Happiness stamp set and coordinating Sweet and Sassy framelits. Because, as you know, I LOVE Valentines and hearts and pretty paper!

I only used one ink pad on this card- calypso coral. It looks like the heart has more than one color, but that is because of the unique carving of this beautiful stamp.


The cardstock used is whisper white, pink pirouette and melon mambo. I also used the gorgeous Painted with Love designer paper and Gold Glimmer paper.


I used the new gold tinsel trim to make a bow and attached an Enamel Glitter Dot over the knot in the ribbon.


So, do you want to see what's inside?


A cute little "pop up" heart <3

I can't get enough of this beautiful designer paper..


The verse is borrowed from the Painted Palette stamp set.


I hope you are having fun making your valentines for next month.

Thanks again for stopping by!

Until the next time...

Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!

Valentine Card in 3-D

I'm going to share a pretty simple Valentine, (love, wedding or anniversary) card with you today. There's not much stamping going on, just some simple die cuts and folds.

I used the Sweet and Sassy heart framelit dies, the Diagonal Stripe Background stamp, berry burst metalic edge ribbon, sweet sugarplum cardstock, powder pink cardstock and rich razzleberry ink for this 3 dimensional valentine.


This is the card from the top, looking down on it.


And here it is from the side.


I cut 8 of the largest hearts in the Sweet and Sassy framelit set. And then scored them down the middle with the Simply Scored tool. This photo shows 3 of the 8 hearts.


Next, I attached them back to back on only one side of the heart.


I did this with all 8 hearts.


The back will end up like this. This will be what you will adhere to the card. NOTE: the hearts in these photos are smaller than the hearts on the card. But still the same technique was used.


This is what the front of all the hearts looks like, once you have all 8 attached to each other.


After you attach the 3 D heart to the front of the card- fluff it out. The hearts actually lay flat inside an envelope and pop up once taken out of the envelope, so its easy to send in the mail!


I hope you give this 3 D pop up a try. It really is simple, but packs a punch!

Thanks for visiting today.

Until the next time...

My Pretty Valentine- Stampin' Up Style

Yes, its time for another pretty Valentine! I had so much fun making this one. Its all the colors that I love and even some glimmer and shine!

I made this for a swap that I host with other demonstrators across US and Canada. I'm so excited to share this Heart Happiness stamp set and the gorgeous "Painted with Love" designer paper.

I used powder pink, melon mambo and whisper white cardstock, as well as gold glimmer paper.

To cut out the heart window and the smaller hearts, I used the Sweet and Sassy heart shaped framelit dies. I attached some dimensionals behind the heart window to pop it up from the card.


Its so vibrant and shiny in real life. I wish you could see that in these photos.


Here's the inside. Sweet and simple. This is the only place that I actually used the Heart Happiness stamp set. The colors are calypso coral, rich razzleberry and melon mambo. The verse on the front of the card is from a new set called, "Petal Palette."


Isn't the "Painted with Love" designer paper, stunning?


The "Love" mini tinsel trim is new in the Occasions catalog as well. It comes in powder pink (shown here) and gold.


I cut the powder pink cardstock 4" x 3 3/4" on top- the smaller piece is 4" x 1 1/2" on bottom. The strip of designer paper on the bottom of the card is 4" x 3/4" and the gold glimmer is 4" x 1/2". The designer paper behind the cut out heart is 1/4" smaller each way than the powder pink. The whisper white card is the standard 4 1/4" x 11- then folded in half.


Oh how I love these beautiful colors, especially for Valentines Day.


I can't wait for my friends to get their cards. I even made a few for my friends and family at home.

Thanks so much for visiting today.

Until the next time...
