Valentine's Day

Love Collage Take Two!

Here's an alternate version of my original Valentine's Day collage I showed in my previous post. If you haven't seen that post and want a few tips for easy collage making, you'll want to see it.

All My Love Designer Series Paper Dimensions: Cut four different patterns 3" x 6" each. You'll want to pay attention to which pieces you'll be using in vertically and horizontally if the DSP pattern is directional. Cut one piece of DSP 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" for center. Card Stock is 12" x 12". Spacing between DSP pieces is 1/4". The card stock border around the collage is 1 3/8".

Collage Making Made Simple

I enjoy seeing so many handmade collages on social media. They're beautiful and often inspire us to want to create our own, but it also may be intimidating with concerns such as "What are the measurements?" and "How do I get even spacing between squares and around the outside of the collage?". January 29th, I did a Facebook Live with measurements and tips for collage making with ease and no stress. See the edited video of that FB Live below.

More Heartfelt Blooms

If you don't have Stampin' Up!'s new DistINKtive stamp set, you are missing out. This new type of stamp is patent pending! What an exciting thing for Stampin' Up! Our DistINKtive stamp is designed to give you a photo realistic stamped image. The detail in this floral image is truly amazing and so beautiful to look at, and it's simple to stamp too! Get the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set FREE with a qualifying order using my Host Code SK6JSEK6 on my website.

Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set
This is what I call a Tone on Tone card using Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant card stock and ink pads. I had the opportunity to swap this card at a recent Leadership Event I attended with 80+ other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. Swapping cards is always a fun exchange of creativity and friendship, one of the special benefits of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set

I used Sahara Sand and Basic Black card stock and ink pads for this Heartfelt Blooms card. Sometimes less is more, and simple is elegant. This card is a good example of a KISS & SIP card - Keep It Simple Stamping with Stamps, Ink, and Paper. 

I love thee "Sending Heartfelt Thoughts" sentiment. It has so many uses including sympathy, thinking of you, loving thoughts, etc. 

If you like these cards, be sure to take a look at my February 8, 2018 post which includes a video and free tutorial for several more cards and projects featuring the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set.

This Little Piggy Loves You

My goodness, the This Little Piggy stamp set makes me happy. I enjoyed creating another card using it along with the new In Color Powder Pink which pairs nicely with Smoky Slate. Stampin' Up! makes it easy to "watercolor" stamped images and scenes with ink pads and Aqua Painters. If you don't have Aqua Painters, I highly suggest you add them to an order. They are so easy to use and make you feel like a watercolor artist.

Another Valentine's Day Collage

My team has started swapping 2" x 2" squares with a particular theme, color combo, and/or featured Designer Series Paper. We then use them to create our own collages.  Last month, I received many of these swaps and used 9 of them to create this sweet collage.  The square I swapped is in the lower right hand corner.  I used Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack as my 2" square base. I stamped the heart from the You're So Sweet stamp set in Basic Black ink on Real Red card stock and cut it out using the heart from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies.  It's wonderful to see all the beautiful creations that my team comes up with for these and all our other swaps.
