Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Stampin’ Up! has lots of new products for sending cards to loved ones for Valentine’s Day, anniversary, and wedding. The Occasions catalog is filled with so many ideas to inspire us! Today I am showcasing two cards I made using products from the Falling in Love Suite.
I love everything in this suite…the soft muted colors in the designer series paper, the lace doilies, jewel embellishments, and especially the Falling Petals Embossing Folder. It can look like hearts or falling petals. The Lace Doilies are printed Very Vanilla on one side, white on the other. I love that versatility! I was inspired by the anniversary card showcased on page 50 (and above) and couldn’t wait to make it in different colors.
My niece is getting married next month and her wedding colors are navy, silver, and white. I used the Falling Petals Embossing Folder for the background on this card. I embossed the hearts on a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 Night of Navy cardstock and added the lace doily, vellum, and ribbon before adhering it to the card base. I embossed the sentiment from the So in Love Stamp Set with silver embossing powder and cut it out with the Bunch of Banners Framelits. I used silver foil to cut the love from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits. I cut a piece of 2 1/4 x 6 Night of Navy cardstock to emboss with the hearts to make a matching envelope.
My next card uses the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper for the background.
The card base is Sahara Sand. Next is a layer of Very Vanilla which measures 5 3/8 x 4 1/8. The designer series paper from Falling in Love measures 4 x 5 1/4. I cut a circle from the layering circles framelits to place behind the very vanilla doily. It gives it a different look. I like the tone on tone to highlight the sentiment banner and heart.
I used the same sentiment from So in Love only this time I masked part of it so I would just have the word celebrate. I used the Bunch of Banner Framelits to cut out the sentiment and attached it with dimensionals. I cut the heart from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits using silver foil and added the embellishment to tie in the silver and vanilla. I used the DSP to line the back of the envelope. I love the elegant look of this card.
Preciously I shared a card and gift card holder I made using the So in Love Stamp Set and So Detailed Thinlits Dies. If you missed that post, you can see it HERE.
Check out this short video from Stampin’ Up! showing some different ideas using this stamp set and dies from the Falling in Love Suite.
