Sealed with Love - Hugs and Kisses

Hi guys! Happy Tuesday! Wow, I went 6 day's without internet service and had serious doubts I was even going to get this post out to you, but low and behold...I made it...phew....! Anyhoo, my addiction with this stamp set does continue, but this card was actually conceptualized accidentally! What I mean is, when making one of the other cards, I had punched out the sweetheart shaped piece from a half sheet of cardstock sitting on my desk. Well that half sheet was still sitting there and so I picked it up and went a head and folded it in half again (creating a card base) and that's all she wrote...I got this idea, and here it is!
Stamp Set: Sealed with Love
Paper: Real Red 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" cut and scored 4 1/4" and scrap; Whisper White 5 1/4" x 4" and scrap for heart Sending Love DSP 2' x 5 1/4"
Ink: Real Red
Misc: Sweetheart punch; Sweet and Sassy Framelits; Falling Petals TIEF; Big Shot; Basic Pearls; Dimensionals; Fast Fuse

Punch the sweetheart shape from the bottom right corner of the card base and adhere the DSP to the left. Run a piece of scrap Real Red through the Big Shot with the 2nd largest heart framelit and a Whisper White piece with the next smaller size. Run the Real Red heart through again with the Falling Petals TIEF and adhere that to the card over the DSP. Stamp the Happy Valentine's Day in Real Red onto the Whisper White heart. and add that to the card with a Dimensional overlapping the Real Red heart. Add 3 small pearls to the bottom right. Add a piece of Whisper White to the inside of the card and while holding the card closed, stamp the Hugs and Kisses in the center of the punched heart.

 I hope you enjoyed today's "accidental" card. Please leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts. I would love to hear. Thank you and have a great day!
Happy Stamping,

New New New - Remarkable Blog Hop

Hey there! Welcome to the next stop on the blog hop! I truly hope you are enjoying all the talents of these great hoppers! I know I am! So, the focus of this hop as I am sure you have figured out, is all of the great new and awesome stuff in the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration mini and here is my card:
This card uses the brand new stamp set Birthday Blast, the new Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder and new Sale-a-Bration DSP Carried Away. I have to tell you, I am just LOVING on these new Dynamic Embossing Folders! The amount of texture and dimension is just amazing! Just a tip though, when using these folders, you will want to lightly spritz your paper with water to allow the paper fibers to soften a bit to allow them to stretch and mold to the folder. That's what gives you such amazing dimension.
Stamp Set: Birthday Blast
Paper: Whisper White 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored and folded at 4 1/4"; Mint Macaron 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and 4" x 2"; Carried Away DSP cut 4 1/2" x 2 1/2"; Night of Navy cut 3/4" x 3 1/4";
Ink: Night of Navy
Misc: Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder, Night of Navy solid Bakers Twine; Stampin' Dimensionals; Liquid Multipurpose Glue

Run the Mint Macaron piece through the Big Shot with the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder (remember to spritz the paper lightly) and apply to the Whisper White card base using Liquid Multipurpose glue (this works best when working with textured cardstock). Center the DSP onto the card using adhesive of choice, I used liquid glue since I had it handy. Banner the end of the Night of Navy strip and adhere that to the card. Stamp the Happy Birthday from the Birthday Blast stamp set using Night of Navy ink and wrap with the Night of Navy twine and tie a bow, trim the tails and using Stampin' Dimensionals, adhere to the lower, slightly to the right of the card.

I hope you enjoyed the card and I hope you've seen enough to help you fall in love with these new products as much as I have. Please feel free to leave a comment as I love hearing your feedback and I wish you all a wonderful evening.

It's an Addiction - Sealed with Love

Hey everyone! I have to admit, I need a 12 step program for this stamp set. I just can not put it down for anything. Just when I think I am ready to move onto something else, another idea pops into my brain and I have to play with it! So, here is the latest one.
Stamp Set: Sealed with Love
Paper: Basic Black 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"; Sending Love DSP 5 1/2" x 1 3/4"; Crumb Cake; Whisper White 3/4" x 3"; Real Red
Ink: Real Red; Crumb Cake
Misc: Sweetheart Punch; Paper Snips; Fast Fuse; Stampin' Dimensionals; Stitched Shapes Framelits; Big Shot; Sponge Daubers

Adhere the DSP to the cardbase. Cut the Crumb Cake using the 2nd to the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes framelits and using a sponge dauber, sponge with Crumb Cake. Punch a heart from the Real Red cardstock and add 3 Pearls and adhere to the crumb cake circle with a dimensional and adhere to the card. Stamp the Love Note sentiment in Real Red ink onto the Whisper White and banner the ends using your paper snips. Add this to the card, sliding it slightly under the circle.
I hope you have enjoyed today's card. Please feel free to leave a comment below as I am always excited to hear your thoughts. In the meantime, have a great day!
Happy Stamping,

Sealed with Love - A string of Hearts

Hey all! Happy Tuesday! I'm so glad you could stop by. I had a pretty productive weekend creating and today, I want to share with you this adorable card. Yes, I know, I really am addicted to this bundle of product. I just keep reaching for it over and over again. Yes, I really do love all the other things in this Occasions catalog, but right now, with Valentines Day right around the corner, it seems to be drawing me to this set time and time again.
So, here it is:
The coordinating dies make this card SOOOO easy! I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do.

Paper: Real Red 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored and folded at 4 1/4", scrap piece for the dimensional heart; Sending Love DSP 5 1/4" x 3 1/4"; Basic Black 2 1/2" x 4 1/4", scrap for the die cut heart and arrow; Whisper White 2 1/4" x 4"
Stamp Set: Sealed With Love
Ink: Real Red
Misc: Love Notes Framelits; Fast Fuse; Fine Tip Glue; Big Shot

Run the Real Red Card base through the Big Shot with the Heart Border die from the collection, add dimension by pulling the heart edges upward. Then adhere the DSP with Fast Fuse to the center of the card base just to the left of the dimensional hearts. Run scraps of Real Red and Basic Black through the Big Shot with the heart dies and arrow die. Adhere the hearts using the Fine Tip glue, overlapping the 2. Stamp the sentiment in Real Red and adhere the arrow below the sentiment also using the Fine Tip glue. Layer this onto the Basic Black panel and adhere this entire piece to the center of the card base using Fast Fuse.
That's it! Like I said, EASY PEASY!
So, what do you think? Please feel free to leave a comment. As always, I love to hear your thoughts.
Until next time, have a great day!
Happy Stamping,
