A Showcase of Valentines

I am often so busy creating that I don’t always get to photograph and blog about each card or gift I make. To me what’s most important is to share that handmade kindness and make someone smile. Today I have three different Valentine’s Day cards I made this year which I did manage to take a photograph or two before sending.

My first card today was for my son. It was made using products from the All My Love Suite.

My son loves to snowboard and he is heading to Colorado at the end of this month for a ski vacation. I know he will appreciate the little gift I tucked inside to enjoy the slopes in Vail! This card is clean & simple and full of love!

Yesterday I shared one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, Part of My Story.  I promised to show you another card I made using the same sentiment.  (If you missed yesterday’s post, click HERE to view.)  I love that this sentiment can be used any time of the year.  I enjoyed making these simple Valentine cards for my friends!

I used Stampin’ Up!’s Whisper White note cards & envelopes which made creating quick, easy, and economical!  Great for when having to make multiples! I also used the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies to cut the hearts (just like I did for all of today’s cards). These dies are gorgeous with stitching and scalloped details and can be used year round for wedding, anniversary, or other lovely occasions!

Check out the long scalloped die at the bottom.  You can use this die to add detail and stitching on an envelope flap and much more! How cool is that?! (Special thanks to Mary Fish for sharing that tip!)

Next, here’s a pop up gift card holder I made for my daughter. Her college apartment is across the street from Panera so I know she will enjoy this treat.Stampin Up Pop Up Gift Card Holder idea using Well Written Framelits Dies and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love how the heart gift card coordinates with the colors in the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Check back tomorrow and I will share all the details how to make this pop up gift card holder.

Previously I shared a project I made for my husband.  I’m giving him “the key to my heart”.  If you missed that project you can view it HERE.

I hope you are surrounded by love today. I am reminded of a simple poem I read to my students recently… “There are silver ships, There are gold ships, But the best of all is friendship!”

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Stampin Up friend card and gift idea using Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and Part of My Story Stamp Set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Today I’m “Sale-A-Brating” friendship! One of the best things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is all the new friendships I have made over the past several years while sharing my joy of stamping!

My card and gift uses three of my favorite items from the Sale-A-Bration catalog…the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, the gorgeous Organdy Ribbon (from the combo pack), and an awesome sentiment stamp set, Part of My Story.  Here’s a peek at each of these items.   (Did I mention you can get all of these for FREE?!!)

I love to create cards and gifts to match.  This gift was quick & easy to put together for a special friend. Gather some rocks, tree branches, and some store bought moss and put it all in a jar. (The rocks hold the branches in place.)  I fussy cut the large butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and attached them to the branches with glue dots.  This gift will last much longer than a bouquet of flowers! Choose the butterflies that match your home decor or stamp your own using the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set from the Occasions catalog!

For the coordinating card I used another pattern from the Botancial Butterfly DSP for my background.  I used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut the branch and then fussy cut another large butterfly from the DSP.  I punched the small butterfly from another pattern of the DSP using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  (I love how you can use the butterfly punch with the coordinating Butterfly Gala Stamp Set or the Designer Series Paper.  More bang for your buck!!)

I popped up the butterfly layer, the larger butterfly, and the sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The finishing touch was adding the beautiful bow made with the organdy ribbon!  The best part about this project is I got the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack, and Part of My Story Stamp Set for FREE!
