Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Prized Peony Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew blog hop!  Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products.  This month we are all creating projects with a “Love” theme and I’m featuring the Prized Peony Bundle and Heartfelt Bundle from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. This card is for my mother for Valentine’s Day (don’t worry, she doesn’t subscribe). She loves florals and soft pinks so the Peony Garden Suite of products is perfect. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Petal Pink Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ for the card base & 2 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ to punch.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ panel and 3″ x 4″ to die cut.
  • Gray Granite Cardstock: largest Stitched Rectangle die cut.
  • Peony Garden Designer Series Paper: 2nd largest Stitched Rectangle die cut.

The Creating

  • Adhere the Gray Granite Stitched Rectangles die cut to the card front. Add the Peony Garden Stitched Rectangle die cut on top.
  • With Gray Granite Ink, stamp the large peony from the Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set on the 3″ x 4″ Whisper White Cardstock. Pass it through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the coordinating die from Peony Dies. Adhere the die cut to the Peony Garden panel on the card front.
  • With Gray Granite Ink, stamp the large peony and leaves from the Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set on the left side of the Whisper White inside panel. Add the sentiment from Heartfelt Photopolymer Stamp Set. Adhere to the inside of the card.
  • With Gray Granite Ink, stamp the large peony from the Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set on a Whisper White Medium Envelope.
  • Punch the 2 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ Petal Pink Cardstock with the scallop edge heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack. Use Gray Granite Ink to stamp the sentiment and stitched heart on it. Pop it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Using a Dark Gray Granite Stampin’ Blend, add color to a 6″ piece of Whisper White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon. Tie in a bow and adhere to the card front with a Mini Glue Dot. (I love how the Stampin’ Blend makes the ribbon a little bit stiffer for a crisper bow). Trim if needed.
  • Embellish with three (3) petal pink Elegant Faceted Gems.

You can see a list of supplies used to create this card at the very bottom of this blog post.

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Medallions Valentine Card

Tonight’s card features the Heartfelt Bundle and the Many Medallions Dies from the 2020-21 Annual Catalog. I couldn’t resist sneaking in the Resin Hearts Embellishments from the upcoming January – June Mini Catalog. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ for the card base and two 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ pieces or the heart punches.
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ and 3/4″ x 4″ for the medallion die cuts.

The Creating

  • Run the Basic Black Cardstock and the Many Medallion Dies thought the Stampin’ and Emboss Machine. Lay each die cut, in turn, face down on the Silicone Craft Mat. Squeeze a quarter size dollop of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the corner of the mat, dip in 1/4 of a Stampin’ Sponge and apply to the edges and center of the dies. Adhere to the front and inside of the card base.
  • Tie the Whisper White faux linen ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the end of the card and tie in a bow.
  • Stamp the red heart in Real Red Ink and the lace heart in Tuxedo Black Ink. Punch with the coordinating punches from the Hearts Punch Pack. Adhere the red one on top of the lace heart with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Pop onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Apply three (3) red Resin Hearts Embellishments (available January 5, 2021) on the card front.
  • Stamp the greeting and heart on the inside of the card and the arrow on the envelope flap.

Note: I recommend the Stamparatus when stamping solid fill stamps such as the Happy Valentine’s heart and also when adding two images closely together like the inside of this card. It makes it so much easier and correctible if something goes awry 😉

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Curvy Valentine Card

I love the mix of reds, grays and blacks in this card. It’s CASED from a Pinterest post created by Colleen Seymour Crafts. It is made using the Quite Curvy Bundle (Preorder and Jan – June 2021 Mini Catalog), the Heartfelt Bundle (2020-21 Annual Catalog) and the Plaid Tidings 6×6 Designer Series Paper (2020 Aug – Dec Mini Catalog). This paper is retiring and the last day to order it is January 4, 2020. Don’t miss it, it’s a great pack! There is also a sneak peek of the Resin Hearts Embellishments from the upcoming Jan – Jun Mini Catalog. They are sooo stinkiin’ cute!

The Paper Cuts

  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ for the card base and 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″
  • Real Red Cardstock: 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ and a scrap for the small heart punch.
  • Plaid Tidings 6×6 Designer Series Paper: 3″ x 5 1/2″ and 1″ x 5 1/2″ gray plaid; 2″ x 5 1/2″ and 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ black plaid.

The Creating

  • Cut the 2 gray plaid strips of DSP with the fancy Curvy Dies border. Cut the black plaid DSP with the dotted Curvy Dies border. Be sure to note which way the cutting edge of the border die is before you pass it through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. You want the cutting edge near the edge of the paper.
  • Stamp the lattice heart stamp from the Heartfelt Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the small piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock. Punch it out with the scallop heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack. Also punch the smooth heart from Heart Punch Pack from Real Red Cardstock. The smaller punch in the center is from Real Red Cardstock and punched with a punch I bought at a craft fair probably 25 years ago. They were quite common, but if you don’t have one you can use a die or snips.
  • Dry fit the pieces to decide your placement on the card. I adhered the two hearts together and popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals. The other layers I adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The black plaid piece on the inside is left over from cutting the outside piece.
  • Stamp the outer greeting from the Quite Curvy Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and the inside greeting from the Heartfelt Stamp Set with Real Red Ink.
  • Apply three (3) red Resin Hearts Embellishments (available January 5, 2021) on the card front.
  • Apply Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the envelope flap, adhere the DSP and trim with Paper Snips.

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt and Ornate Thanks

The inspiration for this card is from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, page 75. I love the colors and that it uses a Heart Set in a way that is not Valentine’s. If you like the Heartfelt Set you may want to take advantage of the 10% bundle savings before June 3rd. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Whisper White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ card base scored at 5 1/2″ and a scrap for the sentiment.
  • Terracotta Tile Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel and 2 heart punches.
  • Old Olive Cardstock: 3 heart punches.
  • Ornate Garden Specialty DSP: 1 heart punch and a 4″ x 3″ panel.

The Creating

  • Use the Subtle Embossing Folder to add texture to the Terracotta Tile panel. Tip: Spritz with water for a more defined impression. Adhere to card front.
  • Punch a Scallop Heart from Old Olive Cardstock.
  • Use Old Olive Ink to stamp the dotted heart twice. Stamp in Terracotta Tile Ink twice.
  • Use the Straight-edged Heart to punch the stamped images and one from the DSP. Tip: if you need to cut away cardstock to line your punch up, use a post it note as an extension to hold your heart in the punch.
  • Cut one of the Terracotta hearts in half. Adhere the Hearts to the DSP strip and the strip to the embossed panel.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Terracotta Tile Ink and fussy cut with Paper Snips. Pop up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp the Thanks from Ornate Thanks in Old Olive Ink. Add “for everything” in Terracotta Tile Ink.

Stampin’ Up! Simple Stamping Valentine’s Card

My husband likes to get my handmade (for him) cards, but he isn’t really impressed with a lot of frills, bells and whistles. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, this card was made with him in mind. He’s not afraid of red hearts and I added the black for masculine appeal. Simple…no die cutting, glitter, or embossing. Here’s how it happened…

I began with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock scored at 5 1/2″. I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black and the hearts from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set (2 first generation and a second generation) in Real Red Ink on a piece of 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I back it with a 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ piece of Basic Black Cardstock with Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the Happy Valentine’s Day heart from the Heartfelt Stamp Set (the one in the Forever Lovely set was too tiny for this purpose) in Real Red Ink. To add the black scallop I punched a heart from a scrap of Basic Black Cardstock with the “straight edge” punch from the Heart Punch Pack (this I tossed into my reserve stash) and then punched the “scallop edge” to allow me to align the two front visual. I’m pleased with how that tired out. So, no frills, bells or whistles so I added a simple 1/2″ strip of Real Red Cardstock to the bottom.

I decided Mr Man could handle three (3) Holiday Basic Rhinestone Jewels on the front…skipped the Wink of Stella though. 😉 Links to the supplies used are listed below. Thanks for joining me. Please comment or send me an email if you have an questions or if I can be of help.

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Window Card

I used the Heartfelt Bundle and the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper from the January – June 2020 Mini Catalog (linked below) to make this sweet Valentines card.

I began with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock scored at 5 1/2″. I used the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder directly on the Front Panel, then punched the scalloped heart from the Heart Punch Pack in the right corner.

I stamped the greeting from the Heartfelt Stamp Set in Real Red ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White (one of those 1″ strips from trimming down a 12×12 sheet) and after adhering it with Liquid Adhesive punched it being careful to line up with the previous punched opening.

I added a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock on the inside of the card. I used the scallop heart punch to punch the heart from the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper. I checked the placement through the window on the front and then added the surrounding images. I closed the card and used liquid adhesive to adhere the punched heart through the opening for accurate placement.

The final touch was three (3) Pearl Basic Jewels on the card front. Links to the supplies used are listed below. Please comment or send me an email if you have an questions.

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Card

Tonight’s card is about all things girly….pink, red, glittery, shiny, sequins and sweet. It uses the new Heartfelt Bundle and the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Jan-Jun 2020 Mini Catalog. I hope you enjoy!

I began with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock scored at 5 1/2″. I added a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock that I spritzed with White Shimmer Paint (mixed 80/20 with alcohol) and embossed with the new Parisian Flourish 3D Folder. It is adhered with Liquid Adhesive.

I punched a pink heart and a red heart from the larger heart pattern paper (top left) with the lacy heart punch. Then I punched one from the other larger heart pattern with the smooth heart punch. I stamped the larger lacy heart from the Heartfelt Stamp Set in Real Red on a scrap of Whisper White and punched it out with the lacy heart punch.

I added Wink of Stella to the edge of the stamped heart. Then adhered it with the large tri-color punched heart with Liquid Adhesive. I wanted it to have a lacy edge like the other two. I stamped “Roses are Red” in Real Red ink on the pink heart and I stamped “So Lucky” in Flirty Flamingo ink on the red heart. The top two hearts and the sequins (I recommend the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool) are adhered to the card with Liquid Adhesive. The bottom heart is raised on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The inside piece of Whisper White is 4″ x 5 1/4″. The heart is stamped in Real Red and the “Being Friends” in Tuxedo Black, and adhered with Liquid Adhesive. The products used are listed below and when clicked will take you straight to the store where you can purchase them and any other items you may need as well. Be sure to use the Host Code listed below for the free gift for orders over $50 (which also qualifies you for a free Sale-A-Bration item-see below).
