Two Heartfelt Hearts

It’s Valentine’s week and it is not just for couples. This is a great time to let someone know just how much you love them.

These two Valentine’s Day cards are just wonderful for sharing your love. Today I will show you how to make the Two Hearts card.

This card is made with the Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt stamp set available in the 2020 Mini Catalog which you can view at my store.

Measurements: Whisper White Card stock (CS) 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches scored at 4 1/4 inches and 5 x 3 3/4 inches, Real Red CS 5 1/4 x 4 inches, From My Heart Designer Series Paper (DSP) 5 x 2 1/4 inches and a strip of the foil hearts from the From My Heart DSP.

Adhere the 5 x 2 1/4 inch From My Heart DSP to the bottom of the 5 x 3 3/4 inch Whisper White CS.

Tip: Since this stamp set is Photopolymer, use the Stampin’ Pierce mat to get the best image. Stamp the sentiment “Roses are red, Violets are blue” in Real Red ink onto the right side of the Whisper White CS portion, just above the border of the From My Heart DSP.

Use the Bone Folder to fold the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Whisper White CS at the 4 1/4 inch score line. This is your card base.

Stamp the sentiment “Being friends is better than eating candy (but let’s do that too)” on the inside of the Whisper White CS card base in Real Red ink.

Stamp a few heart doilies on the inside with Flirty Flamingo ink.

You can clean the extra ink off of the Stampin’ Pierce mat with a baby wipe or wet rag.

Punch out the foil hearts from the From My Heart DSP using the scalloped-edged heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack.

Adhere the stamped Whisper White card piece to the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Real Red CS.

Measure the Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon to be about 1 inch longer on each side of the card piece.

Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon to the card piece. Tip: The easiest way to get the glue dot onto the ribbon is to press the ribbon on top of the glue dot while it is on the roll.

I also put a glue dot in the center of the ribbon to hold it in place, then flip the card piece over and adhere the ribbon to the back side.

Adhere the card piece to the front of the Whisper White card base, making sure the inside sentiment is in the proper orientation.

Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Flirty Flamingo foil heart.

Tip: When you have used all the Dimensionals there is a border left behind. Cut into smaller pieces and use these as well.

Position the two foil hearts, then adhere the Real Red foil heart with Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Snail Adhesive.

Peel off the protective cover on the Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhere the Flirty Flamingo foil heart over the top of the Real Red foil heart.

Next you will need some Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the Take Your Pick tool to add some bling. (Sorry about the blurry photo of the rhinestones).

Use the pick end of the Take Your Pick tool to get under the adhesive of the rhinestone and move it into position on your card. Gently press on the rhinestone with your finger to secure it to the card and remove the pick.

I used three rhinestones.

And Viola! my fellow stampers! You have a wonderful card to send to share your love with someone special!

Lovely Lily Pad Thank You

I just love to earn free stuff. During Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration, for every $50 you spend, you choose free stuff from the Sale-a-bration brochure. This card is made from the free Lovely Lily Pad stamp set and the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (DSP).

This is a really fun and colorful thank you card!

Measurements: Whisper White card stock (CS): 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card base with a score at 4 1/4 inches, 5 1/4 x 4 inches and 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 inches; Grapefruit Grove CS: 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches and 3 x 3 inches; Bermuda Bay CS: 4 3/4 x 2 inches; Flirty Flamingo CS 3 x 2 1/2 inches; Granny Apple Green CS 3 x 1 1/2 inches; and Lily Impressions DSP 4 5/8 x 1 7/8 inches. Additional supplies: Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, and Memento ink, and Metallic Bakers Twine and Sequins Combo Pack.

The sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments stamp set. Stamp the “Thank You” sentiment in Memento ink onto the bottom of the 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 inch piece of Whisper White CS. Tip: This is a red rubber stamp so you do get a good image when stamping on a flat surface.

Stamp the lily in Flirty Flamingo ink onto the 3 x 2 1/2 inch piece of Flirty Flamingo CS. Next, stamp the lily pad in Granny Apple Green ink onto the 3 x 1 1/2 piece of Granny Apple Green CS. Tip: To get the best image with a see through Photopolymer stamp, use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat or your catalog. I cover my Pierce Mat with white copy paper so that the ink goes on the paper and not the Mat.

Cut out the lily and the lily pad with your Paper Snips. (If you do have a Big Shot, there are Lily Pad Dies you could use). Adhere the lily pad onto the Whisper White CS piece just over the “Thank You” sentiment. I use Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the lily.

Adhere the lily just over the lily pad. Now adhere the whole piece to the 3 x 3 inch piece of Grapefruit Grove CS.

Adhere the 4 5/8 x 1 7/8 inch piece of Lily Impressions DSP to the 4 3/4 x 2 inch piece of Bermuda Bay CS.

Wrap the Bermuda Bay colored Metallic Bakers Twine around the card piece 2 times, then tie a bow.

Fold the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Whisper White CS at the 4 1/4 inch scoreline and run the Bone Folder over it so it is a nice, crisp fold.

Adhere the 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of Whisper White CS to the 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inch Grapefruit Grove CS. Then adhere the piece to the front of the Whisper White card base.

Adhere the Bermuda Bay and Lily Impressions DSP piece to the card front.

Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the piece with the lily and lily pad on it.
Tip: I get the corner pieces from cutting up the leftover outside edge of the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Adhere the lily and pad piece to the card front above the bow.

Now for the Bling! Apply the Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the area you would like to place the sequins.

The Take Your Pick tool is an easy way to pick up a sequin and place it on the glue.

Easy peasy!
