Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug Hearts Card & Coordination Product Release

Tonight I’m sharing a CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) card from Brian King at http://www.stampwithbrian.com and you can view his card here. This sweet card uses the new Ladybug Dies from the Coordination Product Release that opens tomorrow, February 4th.

Customers will be able to purchase the new Coordination Products beginning tomorrow for a limited time or while supplies last.  Click here to see a flyer with the new products, what they coordinate with and pictures of sample cards using them. Other Promotion details are listed at the bottom of this post.

The Stampin’ Up! Little Ladybug Sale-A-Bration Host Exclusive Stamp Set is free with a $300 retail Customer or Workshop order. A $300 dollar order also qualifies for Hostess Rewards, Loyalty Rewards and earns free Sale-A-Bration items until March 31st. I’ll be glad to help you place your order or set up an online Workshop if you contact me at stampdabbles@gmail.com.

I began with a 11″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Basic Black Cardstock scored at 5 1/2″. I adhered a piece of 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ Flirty Flamingo Cardstock to the front with Snail adhesive. I added a 5 x 4″ piece of Basic Black and a 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ piece of From My Heart DSP.

I used a Rectangle Stitched Die (4th on in the largest set) to cut a piece of Lovely Lipstick Cardstock and added the stitched flight pattern in the left corner with the new Ladybug Dies. So stinking’ cute! I backed this piece with a 2 1/2″ x 3 6/8″ Basic Black. I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black in the right corner and the two ladybugs on Whisper White Cardstock. I colored them using the Lovely Lipstick Dark Blend and shadowed with Cherry Cobbler Dark Blend (strange combo, I know, but it looked best). The hands, feet and spots are filled with Smokey Slate Dark Blend. I cut them out with the new dies, mounted the flying one with Dimensionals and adhered the other with liquid glue and added it to the card front.

On the inside I added a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of whisper white stamped and colored with another cute ladybug. I think the one on the front that called it cute made it blush, lol. I haven’t added a sentiment yet, but it could be birthday, Valentines, thinking of you or thank you.

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! Bloom & Grow Thank You Card

I am fortunate to have a wonderful up-line who often rewards and helps me with my business. She is a wonderful example to me. This Bloom & Grow Bundle is one of those business rewards. This one’s for Amy.

  • 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 to add the pretty texture to a 5 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock. I adhered it to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.
  • I stamped the sentiment on a piece of 5 1/4″ x 1 1/2″ Very Vanilla Cardstock with Tuxedo Black Ink and adhered it to the card front with Snail.
  • I stamped the floral image in Tuxedo Black on a scrap piece (approx 3 1/4″ x 2″) of Very Vanilla and colored it with Stampin’ Blend Combos: Lovely Lipstick, Soft Seafoam and Flirty Flamingo. I cut it out with the coordinating dies.
  • I added a piece of Very Vanilla Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, cutting a slit with my xacto knife in the seam of the card for passage through. I did add a mini glue dot under the bow to secure it in place. (This ribbon has been retired, but there is a Very Vanilla Lace Ribbon in the clearance rack (for $2.80!) that would work just as well).
  • I added the cut out image to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • On the inside I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo black on a piece of 5 1/4″ x 4″ Very Vanilla Cardstock. (This would make a great Valentine’s Day card, too).
  • I added the floral image in the envelope corner with Flirty Flamingo Ink.
  • The sentiment begged for a heart. I used the Trio of Tags Dies for this one (in the Flirty Flamingo). It cuts a dual outline and inner. The inner heart is on the inside of the card and I added the outline heart to the front image. Both were adhered with Liquid Adhesive.
  • I stamped the floral image on a Whisper White Medium Envelope in the Flirty Flamingo for the matching set.

You don’t know how hard it was not to add Wink of Stella, lol. Maybe next time ;).

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).
