Hello Stamping Friends and Happy Valentines Day!!

(Hostess code for Joy’s online party: FCGZVMVE)
I hope you have wonderful plans to celebrate all the loves of your life next week. How about celebrating our “LOVE” of stamping?
At club last month I gave the stampers a card base with a special trifold and then had lots of the new designer paper, the new stamp sets and dies offered in the Occasions catalog and the free foil paper from Sale A Bration available for them to use and design their own Valentine! The results were amazing!
I cut and stamped the Meant To Be stamps with the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies so we could see all the wonderful things we could make. The All My Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) even has one side with hearts that exactly match the framelits. Can you tell which ones are from the DSP and which ones are stamped? What a great bundle this is for many occasions. Check out page 6 of the Occasions catalog.
The card bases were a fun trifold layered with DSP from All My Love Designer Paper.
- Card Base: 11″ X 5 1/2″; Score at 1 1/4″ then 4″ then 6 3/4″
- DSP (X2) for front flaps: 1″ X 5 1/4″
- Coordinating DSP for next flap: 2 1/2″ X 5 1/4″
- Whisper White Message Panel: 2 1/2″ X 5 1/4″ (If Whisper White is your base, cut a coordinating DSP first with these measurements and then make a Whisper White Panel that is 2 1/4″ X 5″
- DSP Panel on the right side matching DSP of the front panels: 4″ X 5 1/4″
Now the fun begins! Check out these beautiful valentines my club ladies created:
Valentine 1 by Joy:
Valentine 2 by Jo:
Valentine 3 by Terri:
Terri used the Lovely Lipstick foil. I missed the closed version of her card.
Valentine 4 by Lucille:
I love how she mounted the foil on a white background and used the little flourish and a heart in the middle!
Valentine #5 by —-:
How creative to pull in the color of the DSP with ribbon and to layer a DSP heart on a white heart!
Valentine #6 by Sharon:
The little Heart Epoxy Droplets pick up the color of the shiny foil beautifully. See page 5, item # 148583. The little flowers she used are the Frosted Flower Embellishments on page 11, item #148782.
Valentine #7 by LIsa:
Check out the embossed heart embellished with a flourish and the top little stamped heart holds the front flap down.
Valentine #8 by Christine:
I love how Christine placed the red outline of the heart so it perfectly matched her front white heart.
Valentine 9 by —–:
The white on the DSP is lovely and there is a plethora of hearts from the one framelit!
Valentine 10 by —-
Look at how she used the Crumb Cake to stamp the greeting and the heart so everything coordinates!
Help me with names dear stamping friends. Send me a comment with which numbered Valentine is yours and I will update the post. After all, it will be sort of a scrapbook for us.
Next post I will share the Shrinky Dink fun that we had for our club technique as well as the new Sale A Bration free products that will be available February 15 and the coordinating products we can purchase March 1 to go with many of the free stamp sets.
This is the Christmas card we made in 2017 with the same folds:
The DSP used here is retired but the stamp set and framelits are still available!! See page 102 of the Annual Catalog for the Ready For Christmas stamp set and the Christmas Staircase thinlits dies on page 216. There is a little Dachshund in this set so it was a must have for me! Check out the other trifold card we made with this set at the card buffet:
I think I started down a rabbit trail, one trifold leading to another and then to another! Thank you for stopping by!
I have a couple people interested in doing a monthly or bimonthly Christmas Card Stamp A Stack starting now so we have lots of cards made by November. Leave me a comment if you are interested.
