Fun Fold Valentine with Heartfelt Bundle

Fun fold cards have a way of bringing smiles--they're just fun to open!  I think the unexpected folds are what bring such delight.  Add in some pretty paper and stamping and you have a winner:)  My fun fold Valentine is actually very quick and easy to make.  Heartfelt Bundle and From My Heart DSP are the two main items that make this design come together so nicely.

funfoldvalentinestampinupheartfeltbundle

This is one of the designs from my Saturday Card Club in January.  This is the last Valentine project I'll be bringing you as we are just days away from the official day when we celebrate love.  You can still make some fun fold Valentines using my measurements.  Just sub out for whatever DSP and stamps you have on hand.  

I demonstrated this card in a Facebook Live and promised the measurements, so here they are:

  • Pool Party Cardstock:  5-1/2" x 7-1/4" scored at 3", 3-3/4" x 1-1/4" scored at 1"
  • Whisper White Cardstock:  5-1/4" x 2-3/8", 3" x 3"
  • DSP:  Small hearts pattern, 5-1/4" x 1-1/2"; pale pink pattern, 5-1/4" x 2-3/4"; striped pattern, 2-1/2" x 1"; a pink and a red foil scalloped foil heart

Once again, I'm using From the Heart Suite of products from Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog for super easy coordination.  Although the color palette is Real Red, Flirty Flamingo, and Whisper White, I added in Pool Party for some welcome coolness to the intense colors.

By finishing off the inside of the arm, I brought another layer of unexpected delight:)

heartfeltbundlestampinupminicatalogcandyrattray

This is one of four designs I created for my January Saturday Card Club.  This quick and easy handmade Valentine features classic colors and design with an updated feel.  It's perfect for the guys and gals in your life!

heartfeltbundlestampinupminicatalogcandyrattray

I'll point out just a few things about my quick and easy Valentine:

  • Heart Doilies are a steal at just $5 for 40!  You get 20 in Real Red and 20 in Flirty Flamingo.  Turn them over for a third color--Whisper White!
  • The colors in this sheet of paper from From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper are strong, and the stripes are small.  All that intensity of color needs something to calm it down but still let it shine.  Enter--classic black and white!
  • I dressed up the inside of my handmade Valentine with some very simple stamping.  A single arrow was the perfect touch.  Use the same arrow on the envelope for an extra special touch.  This card comes together in minutes--literally!

I have another card for you today using the awesome Heartfelt Bundle from Stampin' Up!  I actually used most of the products in the Heartfelt Suite.  Stampin' Up! product suites help you do "one stop shopping" with effortless coordination.  The SU designers do all the work for us so we can just get on with quick, easy, and beautiful projects!

This is one of the cards from my recent class celebrating friendship.  It COULD be used for a Valentine's Day card...or not.  I like versatility with my handmade cards so that I can tailor them to the occasion or person.  But I like having them in my stash, ready to go, with the versatility built in.

Let me point out a few things about my handmade card:

  1. I added a good dash of Pool Party to calm down the very vibrant color palette of Real Red and Flirty Flamingo.  The coolness of Pool Party brings a welcome calm to the intense colors.
  2. Stitched Rectangle Dies are a perfect complement to the Stitched Satin Ribbon.  I love repeating patterns in my designs, and here I chose to repeat TEXTURES.  
  3. Look at those hearts on the inside of my card!  I think the brand new layering heart punches (Heart Punch Pack) make fabulous INSIDES for handmade cards:)

Heartfelt Bundle Card Idea


heartfeltbundlestampinupminicatalogcandyrattray
Although Valentine's Day and the whole month of February celebrate love, love is always in season:)  Heartfelt Bundle is a winner for making quick and easy cards with plenty of pizzazz.  Add in the Designer Series Paper, Heart Doilies, and Real Red Stitched Satin Ribbon from the suite and you have coordination that makes creating simple, carefree, and beautiful!  Today's share is a Heartfelt Bundle card idea that comes together very quickly.

I created this love card for a class recently and specifically made it to go beyond Valentine's Day.  You could easily add a Valentine's Day greeting to the inside...or a Happy Anniversary or Just Because. Celebrating holidays is a must with handmade cards, but I love handmade cards that are versatile enough to go beyond specific holidays.

This is what I did with the inside of my love card for class:

Here are my quick notes about today's handmade card:

  • I absolutely love using the Heart Doilies on the inside of my cards!  They are the perfect way to dress up the inside and also bring an unexpected element.
  • Classic Label Punch is probably my most-oft used punch in my entire craft room.  I love using just a piece of it!
  • From My Heart Specialty DSP has a strong pattern which I mimicked with my stamping.  To keep things from being too structured, I scattered rhinestones randomly.

Bloom & Grow in Spring Colors

Bloom & GrowAAfter sharing all Sale-a-Bration and Mini Catalog projects last week, I thought to kick off this week with a handmade card featuring Bloom & Grow Bundle using all annual catalog products.  This beautiful bundle is versatile with flower images that can be colored according to the season and some great sentiments.

Let me point out a few things about my card:

  1. My color scheme highlights one of this year's In Colors--Rococo Rose--teamed up Mint Macaron and So Saffron for a soft, springy color palette.
  2. Look at the mix of print and script fonts in my sentient!  I love what it says as well as the way it looks:)
  3. The subtle patterns in the 6 x 6 DSP patterns (available in every single Stampin' Up! color collection) is a perfect backdrop when you want your focal point to really stand out.  For my card, I used the Subtles Collection.

Although there are some seasonal items in the annual catalog (aka the big book:), it's primarily filled with things you will use all year.  I think of them as workhorse products--those things we use all year, no matter the season.  Every single product in today's card is in the annual catalog.

If you do not have your own copy of the annual catalog, contact me today and we will talk about the best way to get one into your hands asap!

When you purchase the Bloom & Grow Bundle right now ($53), you earn a free Sale-a-Bration item!  The free selections are found here.  Now is the best time to purchase those annual catalog (or any items at all!) because you get something free with every $50 spend.

Power of Hope Card Idea

 

powerofhopebundlestampinupsaleabration2020candyrattrayI've been featuring Power of Hope Bundle here on my blog all week.  It's one of the FREE selections available during Sale-a-Bration 2020.  Click here to see all the free options.

I kicked it off Monday with a bookmark, and then I shared my simple notecard -both these projects use just the stamp set.  Then I shared a card idea that uses both the Power of Hope stamp set and Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  Today I have one more Power of Hope card idea for you.  That gives you 4 ideas for using this extremely versatile and FREE bundle!

Pagoda Close UpI created all 4 of these projects for my recent Stamp Camp in San Antonio.  I host one of these all-day stamping events with the release of each new catalog, and we always make 16 projects.  They give you the opportunity to experience many new products to see which ones are best for you.  Save the date for my next one:  June 13th.

Let me point out a few features of today's Power of Hope card idea:

  1.  Once again, I used Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper, tapping into those gorgeous cherry blossoms which are a natural for Japanese inspired designs.  It doesn't really show up in my pic, but there is champagne foiling throughout the DSP which brings a LOT of shine and pizzazz:)
  2. Again, not sure it shows up in the photo, but I heat embossed the pagoda image to bring more shine and that rich, black lacquer look to my design.  To add to that, I used a micro layer of Black Foil Sheet around the pagoda image.
  3. I used Stone 3D Embossing Folder on the bottom layer and popped up the entire layer on Stampin' Dimensionals to really showcase the texture.

Power of Hope Card Idea

powerofhopestampinupsaleabration2020candyrattrayI'm featuring Power of Hope Bundle here on my blog all week.  I kicked it off Monday with a bookmark.  You can see that post here.  Yesterday I shared my simple notecard which you can see here using just the stamp set.  Today's card is another simple card, this time using both the Power of Hope stamp set and Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  And tomorrow I have one more Power of Hope card idea for you.  That gives you 4 ideas for using this extremely versatile and FREE stamp set!

The Power of Hope Bundle includes the Power of Hope Cling Stamp Set and Stone 3D Embossing Folder. Pair the stamp set and embossing folder for artistic coordination--like I did here--or use them separately for even more options--like I did on my previous two posts.

So now that you know ALL about the Power of Hope Bundle, let me point out a few things in today's Power of Hope Card Idea:

  • I paired the bundle with Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper.  It features cherry blossoms--very important in Japanese culture--which are a perfect complement to this bundle!
  • The black strip running down the center of my card is the Black Foil Sheet.  it's shiny and simple which is another perfect touch for my handmade card.
  • Stone 3D Embossing Folder is such a nice touch of texture!  I wanted it to be a prominent feature, so I kept everything else pretty simple.
