It's time for another edition of the Stampin' Up! Only Challenge, and I think this is always my favorite of the whole year. It's time to get all those Valentine's Day Cards done, and that's the challenge!
I have been working like crazy to get lots of Valentine's Cards done this year because I think that the Sealed with Love Stamp Set and the Sending Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack in the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog is one of the best combinations I've seen in a long time!
Add to that paper and stamp set combo the wonderful shapes from the Love Notes Framelits Dies, and you have just about everything you need for great Valentine's Cards (well, except for the Real Red Ink and Whisper White Cardstock, which you probably already have in your stash)!
For today's card, I also added a gorgeous stamp (IMHO) from the FREE Sale-a-bration Delicate Details Stamp Set. That's the lace stamp across the card, under the hearts. I used the small heart Framelit from the Framelits Set to cut hearts from scraps of paper from the Sending Love DSP Stack.
Oh, and I love how the teeny white hearts are spaced on the sheet of the DSP that I used for the mat for the stamped layer of this card. They are spaced perfectly to be cut to sizes that typically appear as layers on a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card base (this fits into an A2 or "medium" size envelope).
My final touch on this card was a sprinkling of Pearl Basic Jewels.
If you are a reader of CardMaker Magazine, you just might recognize this layout. Yes, it's a CASE (Copy And Share with Everyone) from a card in their article about simple Valentine's Day Cards using small hearts. I've created a couple of other cards using these layouts, and am sharing them with you this month also. It's just a great magazine for ideas even though they use Stampin' Up! products a bit too infrequently for my taste. Nonetheless, I can usually find Stampin' Up! products to make with their design ideas!
Speaking of products, here are the products that I featured in today's project. Click on any of the pictures to go to my Stampin' Up! Store to order any of them. Or just give me a call, and I can help you place the order if you'd prefer!
