Jar of Love Card for Valentine's Day

Jar of Love Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

If you have been following my blog, you may have noticed that I have been doing a string of "Love You" cards or Valentines.  Even though saying I Love You is a 365 days a year thing, love you cards seems especially appropriate now with Valentine's Day just 2 weeks away.

For today's card, I use the Jar of Love stamp set without the jar.  Instead, I framed my bouquet with a window frame and a heart.


Handmade Valentine by Robin Feicht
The window frame is the Hearth & Home Framelits Dies and the heart is the Sunshine Wishes Dies.  I did snag the "I love you" stamp from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set, because I really like the font and it fits the windowsill so well.

 My color choices are bright and cheerful-Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach, Old Olive and Garden Green.  The Brick Wall is Smoky Slate.

Faux Dry Embossing with dies & Petal Palette

Petal Palette Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

With today's card, we do a little Faux Dry Embossing and I'll share a twist on Coloring and Blending.  It's also my first card with the beautiful Petal Palette Bundle.  Wow, is this a gorgeous a gorgeous and versatile bundle!


Petal Palette Stampin' Up!
Petal Palette Card Idea

I love coloring and blending with Stampin' Blends, but I didn't have all the colors that I wanted.  It was time to experiment.  I colored and blended the small flowers with my Night of Navy Stampin' Blends (Alcohol Markers).  I wanted the leaves to be Lemon Lime Twist, so I colored them with a bit of Lemon Lime Twist ink and a Blender Pen.  For shading, I simply went back and added more color.  For the pink flowers, I combined both coloring techniques.  First, I laid down a base color with my Dark Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blend, then I layered on Powder Pink ink with my blender pen.  And that's my Twist on Blending and Coloring.


Faux Dry Embossing Technique

There are some really intricate dies included in the Petals & More Thinlits Dies that lend themselves to Faux Embossing.  To give the look of dry embossing with dies, simply die cut your images with the same color as the background, then glue the die cuts directly on top of the background.  The dies fool the eye into thinking that it may be dry embossing.  Hint:  For best results using intricate dies, use the Precision Base Plate.  The Precision Base Plate adds a little more oomph to your die sandwich, making working with detailed dies a dream.


How to Make a Card

 For a fun twist, try adding a panel of colored card stock to the inside of a white card base.  For today's card, I inserted Lemon Lime Twist.

How to Make a Trio of Handmade Valentines

How to Make Valentine Gifts & Cards

Hello Friends,

I love Valentines Day.  It just another excuse to say "I Love You" with adorable paper crafts.  Today's trio of handmade Valentine Paper Crafts were all made with the ridiculously gorgeous Painted with Love Specialty Paper.  The splashes and swatches of Pinks, Purple, Coral and Gold are both trendy and beautiful.


DIY Popcorn Box

Give the Gift of Carmel Popcorn in an adorable Popcorn Box.  I made mine with the Popcorn Box die, the Ready to Pop Stamp Set and the Painted with Love Designer Paper.   See the Stampin' Up! Video below for the ins and outs of making a Popcorn Box.

The Ready to Pop Stamp Set and the Popcorn Box Dies also make adorable Baby Cards.  See the card that I sent to my Daughter-In-Law just before our Granddaughter, Lacy, was born.

DIY Love Notes

This cute little love note can be made in minutes.  It's the perfect size to pop in a lunch box or just about anywhere.  The Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelope are super simple to make up and are an adorable size.  For today's Valentine, I cut a 2-1/4" x 4-1/4" pieces of Designer Paper.  Then cut 2 hearts with my Sweet & Sassy Dies.  I used the Flourishing Phrases stamp set to stamp both my heart and the inside "I Love You".  Because of the hinged system of my Stamparatus, I was able to neatly stamp the "I love you" 3 times in less than 2 minutes.  See a video of the Stamparatus in action Here.

 
Cute & Simple Valentine Treats
I made these sweet treat holders with a 2" by 6" piece of Painted with Love Designer Paper Scored at 2-2/2" and 3-1/2".  It easily fits a fun size candy.  But you can adjust the size to fit any candy.  To finish my Valentine project, I wrapped Shimmery Powder Pink Ribbon and cut 2 hearts with the Sweet & Sassy Dies.  The Stamp is from the Ready to Pop Stamp Set.  As always, you will find a complete list of supplies at the bottom of this post.
