Love Is In The Air

It is another fun Friday when Jackie, Buffy and I participate in our Stamp Off Challenge.  This week our challenge is just in time for Valentine’s Day.


Here is my card:

Sunshine Wishes, Valentines, Stampin Up,

I just realized while I am posting that I actually followed the colors of the challenge (even though it is not a color challenge).  I didn’t mean to but I guess I need to make up for my crooked Tic Tac Toe from last week so I am following the letter of the law this week!

Also, please notice that I used Blushing Bride, a doily and Burlap Ribbon.  I think it must be a first for the doily and burlap.  I also just noticed I cut the ribbon incorrectly but hand made cards aren’t supposed to be perfect so I am leaving it the way it is.

Let’s talk about that doily.  The proper name is actually Lace Doilies and they are in the Occasions Catalog.  The reason I bought them is because one side is Very Vanilla and one side is Whisper White so you an choose which color you want to use.  I like that!

The sentiment “love” came from a set of Thinlits called.Sunshine Wishes.  The arrow is from Love Notes and the Embossing Folder is called Falling Petals.  The petals are actually little hearts.

Now let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made.

Bloomin’ Heart Valentine

Bloomin Heart, Sealed With Love, Valentine, Stampin Up,

I just got back from a quick trip to drive my 91 year old mother to Florida for the winter.  My mom is pretty amazing for being 91 (almost 92 as she says!).  She takes very little medication, lives on her own and still (gulp) drives.  Now, she doesn’t go long distances (thankfully) but she can still go to the bank and grocery store easily.  Mind you, she NEVER drives when I am in the car.  I do.  I am sure many of you can relate to that.

Anyway, I need to get caught up on my Valentine’s Day cards so you might see a lot of them for the next week or so.  I decided to dig out an oldie but goodie set of Thinlits called Bloomin’ Heart.  I love this set of Thinlits because it is so elegant looking.  I added some Wink Of Stella on the cut out but you can’t really see it in the picture.  It adds just the right amount of sparkle without being too overwhelming.

The sentiment if from a new stamp set that is in the Occasions Catalog called Sealed With Love.  This is a darling set that has matching Framelits called Love Notes.  You can save 10% by purchasing them in a bundle.

Sealed With Love Valentines

Sealed With Love, Love Notes, Stampin Up, Valentine,

This is the third and my favorite card we made at our monthly stamp club meeting last week.  It uses a brand new stamp set called Sealed With Love.  This set is in the 2017 Occasions Catalog.  It has a matching set of Framelits called Love Notes and you can save 10% by purchasing them both in a bundle.  I love this set of Framelits.  It has 14 different dies with it and include two dies to make little envelopes.  There is also a die to make that awesome border of hearts.  To top it all off it has hearts (of course!), arrows, and a couple of little cards that fit into the envelopes.  Just think of all those cute Valentine cards you can make for your loved ones with this Bundle.

Another great thing about this card is if you buy the Bundle of stamps and dies, plus the Happy Heart Embossing Folder, you will earn FREE product from the Sale-a-bration catalog!

A Stamp Off Sneak Peek

Stamp Off Logo Clean

This time our Stamp Off Challenge is a sketch challenge.  I love sketch challenges the best because I find them the easiest to do.  I know that sounds bad but I have a much harder time with the other challenges.  I won’t even try to guess who made this challenge because I usually get it wrong.


Here is my card:

Sealed With Love, Love Notes, 2017 Occasions Catalog, Stampin Up, #onStage2016

I used a new stamp set and some new dies that will be in the 2017 Occasions Catalog.  This catalog will be available January 4, 2017.  You are going to love it!  The stamp set is called Sealed With Love and the dies are called Love Notes Framelits.   You will be able to save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.

I absolutely love the heart edge die in this set.  I think it will get a lot of use all year round.  It cuts out the hearts on both sides but only scores them in the middle so they pop out.  The stamp set has 27 stamps included with it.  The dies, oh the dies, are awesome.  It has hearts, arrows, two little envelopes and so much more.  You are going to love it!

Now, let’s go check out what Jackie and Buffy made for this sketch challenge.
