Happy Valentine’s Day – Sneak Peek

LoveHappy Valentine’s Day!

My Valentine’s card uses one of the soon to be released Sale-A-Bration items available starting February 21.


Glimmer Paper! 12 sheets of 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper in Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum – I love them and this Bermuda Bay glimmer paper is absolutely gorgeous!

I used the “line” thinlit from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits to cut out the portion at the top of the Whisper White. Added some of the glimmer paper behind it and attached it back into the card. The hearts were made with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits and the sentiment is from Love Sparkles.

There will be two other stamp sets in the second release of Sale-A-Bration being offered and I’m sure you will love them.

Sale-A-bration ends on March 31 and while it seems a way off, trust me, time flies and if you don’t want to be disappointed in choosing your Sale-A-Bration items, be sure to place your qualifying orders ($60 exclusive of tax and shipping) to ensure that you’ll get the items you want.

SHOP MY ONLINE STORE HERE for all your stamping needs – and remember only one week away to the second release of Sale-A-Bration items.

The base card stock is Blushing Bride with the Fluttering embossed Very Vanilla for the first layer.  If you don’t have the Falling In Love DSP from the Occasions Catalogue, it really is a must have with all the beautiful subtle colors in the package.  The strip across the centre, layered over a piece of Blushing Bride card stock,  is one of the patterns and another pattern is used inside the shaker portion.

Floral Phrases with Note Card

Still not getting enough of this beautiful suite.  I have been making several cards using the suite but in alternate colors, however, today’s card is using the Night of Navy card stock once more.

The card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at  5 1/2″.  The DSP Floral Boutique panel is cut 5 1/4″ x 4″.  I used the larger thinlit and border to cut out the accent piece and it is cut 4 1/4″ x 3 1/2″.

Adhere the pocket to the front of the card using the Multipurpose glue.  A length of the Night of Navy Twine is tied around the layers and then adhered to the front of the card.

Floral Phrases Navy

I made a note card to tuck inside the pocket.  T3he Night of Navy piece is cut  4 1/8″ x 3 1/4″ with the Whisper White layer cut 4″ x 3 1/8″.  The floral image and sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy and embellished with some Basic Rhinestones.

Floral Phrases Navy Note

Swirly Bird Bundle

This is a fabulous bundle as you can make beautiful floral images to adorable baby cards.  The bonus is in the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits in this bundle as you get this nice “scroll” in them.

I used the scroll in today’s card.  I started with a card base cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.  On the front panel of the card, I cut it at 2 3/4″ from the top fold, and then cut off a 1 1/2″ piece.

Swirly Bird Melon
The layering pieces of Melon Mambo is cut at 4″ x 2 1/2″ and 4″ x 1 1/4″ with the Pop of Pink Specialty DSP pieces cut at 3 7/8″ x 2 1/2″ and 3 7/8″ x 1 1/8″.

The Basic Black scroll piece from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits is trimmed to 4 1/2″.   You next place the small front panel piece flush with the bottom of back panel of the card and then adhere the scroll to the front of the card with adhesive to the top piece and bottom piece.

I added Melon Membo flowers, highlighted with a bit of Clear Wink of Stella,  to the front of the scroll  On the inside panel of the card, I stamped the sentiment from Suite Sayings in Memento Black ink  to show through the opening of the card and colored the leaf with a Melon Mambo Marker.

Swirly Scribbles

Playing with some of the new goodies coming out in the Annual Catalogue on June 1 and had fun with this new thinlit, Swirly Scribbles.  I’ve also incorporated two other new products, Melon Mambo Thick Baker’s Twine and the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Swirly Scribbles MelonI started with a piece of Basic Black card stock cut 4 1/2″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.  The Melon Mambo later is cut 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ with the DSP cut at 5″ x 3 3/4″.   There are three sizes of swirls in the set and those are cut out in Melon Mambo and Basic Black.  I added the Baker’s Twine in the middle of the layers and added the swirls on top with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is from Circle of Spring stamped on Whisper White and punched out with the 7/8″ Scallop punch (retiring!) and layered onto a Black 1″ Circle punched piece and adhered to the card with a dimensional.
