Stacked with Love, Card Three

The third card from my Stacked with Love Product Sampler card kit isn’t a Valentine themed one, but it easily could be.  I wasn’t sure about the color combination Stampin’ Up! chose for this designer series paper.  To me, Real Red doesn’t “go” with Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe and I didn’t know how I would like them together.  Fortunately for me, I ordered the paper anyway.   What I found… Read More »

Sheltering Tree Meets Confetti Heart Punch

Today’s card, created with the “Sheltering Tree” stamp set, would be a fun one to give for Valentine’s Day.  However, it certainly wouldn’t have to be limited to Valentines’ Day and that’s why I left it without a sentiment.  This card would be a great way to express your love for someone any time of the year (maybe even for an anniversary) and would also work well for a thank… Read More »

Stacked with Love Bow Builder

This adorable Bow Builder punch card was one we created at my Upline’s demonstrator meeting last week.  The demonstrator who brought the project for us to create said that this was an anniversary card that she created for her husband, and the bow ties were meant to represent the bow ties he wore with his tuxedo.  I just love the card!!!

Playing with Washi Paper

Sometimes when I’m experimenting, I create projects that are okay, but nothing spectacular.  I would classify today’s card share along those lines.  One of the reasons I’m sharing it is because it uses two of the new specialty papers in Stampin’ Up’s! Occasions catalog.  My second reason in sharing is to demonstrate that there’s nothing wrong with experimenting and only having a so-so outcome.  We don’t always have to create… Read More »
