What a winter we’ve had here in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia! Arctic cold temps (colder than Alaska!), snow and ice. But I’ve begun my SPRING Countdown on my Facebook Page, which I’ve done for several years and now have requests for every year. A fun way to look forward to spring!
But first…Valentine’s Day!!
Painted with Love Suite Sampler and Card
The Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is just so elegant and gorgeous, I’ve loved working with it. The whole “Love”ly Suite can be found in the NEW Occasions Catalog. I love samplers because they’re just something pretty to create and enjoy, as home decor or a gift. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now, and have decided to offer a Class in February. But today I really wanted to work with this Painted with Love Designer Series Paper to create a Valentine’s Sampler.
One of my favorite things about Stampin’ Up products is that everything is coordinated for you, which helped inspire me in the design of the Sampler.
I used an 8 X 8 Melon Mambo base. The Whisper White squares are 2 1/4″. I used 9 different patterns from the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper cut into 2″ squares. The accents are a gold Metallic Foil Doily, as well as hearts cut from the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies in gold foil, Sweet Sugarplum and Powder Pink. The large gold foil hearts are the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies.
I also created a coordinating card to go with it, using some of the same products on a different scale. So easy when Stampin’ Up products are already coordinated for you!
January Class Cards
Despite the weather, we were able to have the Quick and Easy Cards Classes last week and had a fun time creating some cards and a 3D project.
We used the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies to create a box decorated with the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. Calypso Coral Cardstock was placed behind the die cut image, then the die cut heart was used on one of the new Whisper White Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes. You can fit four of these cute little cards in the box!
The Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set was used on the other card, stamped in Soft Suede Ink. Strips of Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper provided the perfect background for this beautiful stamp. The sentiment is from the You’re So Inspiring Stamp Set in the new Occasions Catalog.
