Painted with Love for Valentine's Day & More

The Painted with Love Suite in the 2018 Occasions Catalog is filled with a fabulous assortment of products to help you create beautiful cards and paper crafts for your loved ones. The products are perfect for Valentine's Day but also for weddings, babies, anniversaries, and simple expressions of love for your family and friends. Here are just a few of the projects I created with the Painted with Love Suite.

Sure Do Love You Stamp Set, Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper

I made these cards using the 3 1/2" x 5" Note Cards & Envelopes. The note cards are cut and scored to save you time. The Note Cards & Envelopes are a great deal at $6 for 20 of each (# 131527).

SIP it Saturday - Stamps, Ink, and Paper

This birthday card is an example of what I like to call a KISS & SIP card! Keep It Simple Stampin' with Stamps, Ink, and Paper. Not a lot of layers, techniques, or extras, just simple stamping with the most basic of paper crafting supplies.

I began designing this card by choosing a Designer Series Paper with a small, simple pattern and limited color palette. This DSP would serve as the background that I would stamp Happy Birthday on.  It's not often that I stamp directly on DSP, but it works when using it in this way.

The Stylized Birthday stamp is one of my favorite a la carte stamps Stampin' Up! has ever sold. If you need a birthday stamp and don't have this one, I highly suggest you purchase it. You won't regret it. I use it lots and lots and it's very popular with my customers as well.

I did go beyond SIP a bit by adding a few sequins to the card front for a more festive look to my birthday card.

Stylized Birthday stamp, Urban Underground Designer Series Paper

Basic Black card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" on long side.

Very Vanilla card stock inside is 5 1/4" x 4".

Urban Underground DSP is 5 1/4" x 4".

Here I'm showing you an example of what I like to call a KISS card - Keep It Simple Stamping. It features the Reverse Words stamp set I got free with a Sale-A-Bration order. Many of my customers (also known as my Stampin' Peace VIP's) recently chose this cheery Bermuda Bay as their favorite color in the Stampin' Up! Brights Collection. I think the shiny Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim also adds to the fun of this card. I'm sending this card to someone who is embarking on a new venture in her life! I can think of many other uses for this card too. Please share what occasions you would use this card for.
