Happy Valentine's Day because I "Sure Do Love You"

Happy Valentine's Day everyone. 

Sharing projects made in my Sure Do Love You class featuring the Bundle set of stamps and dies (#145966).  What a great set and the "Painted With Love" Designer Series Paper (#145580), I just cannot get enough of it! 

We accessorized with Sale-a-Bration Dies called "Celebrate You" thinlits (#146840...Free with a $100 purchase), along with the "Sunshine Wishes" thinlit dies (#141489).

Can anyone guess how I made the glittery, gold, hanging heart? Take a guess!

Class projects were 2 full size cards, 2 boxes made from the Sure Do Love You Framelit Dies; one filled with chocolates and the other fit our 3 Narrow Notes & Envelopes (#145583) we made.

The Mixed Medallions Card Kit make 8 cards with envelops but in Stampin' Up! fashion.... I bet with a little creative thinking, you could get even more from this kit.  Just let the imagination go!

Sale-a-brate good times!

And we did just that... My "short-stack" and kick-off to Sale-a-Bration and the Occasions catalogs was a great success.  But most of all, everyone had fun and stamped, stamped, stamped!!!  Here are some photos of the projects everyone made.  

The girls were able to see many items from the 2018 Sale-a-Bration catalog like the Shimmer Ribbon combo pack, Heartfelt Blooms, Amazing You and Happy Wishes stamp sets; and the Celebrate You Framelit Dies.  I wanted everyone to see as much product in action but had to contain myself.  There is so many fabulous things you can earn for Free.

Cards stamps with the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp set received a Faceted Gem just to add a little sparkle.  The Happy Birthday sentiment (one of my new favs!) came from Beautiful Day and the inside greeting from Perennial Birthday, both new in the 2018 Occasions catalog.

The Let's Celebrate Amazing You cards featured Silver, Champagne, and Copper Foil Sheets (opppsss.... I'm missing my copper card).  Well the Coppers foil card had a background paper from Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper (design with the black background and Tangering Tango poppy flowers).  Fun!  Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist cards feature Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack.  I think Fresh Florals is one of the best stacks.   What do you think? 

Lastly, Happy Wishes (Happy Wishes Sales-a-Bration stamp set) cards features a little hint of the Petal Palette Designer Series Paper, the Shimmer Ribbon combo pack (a Sale-a-Bration item too) and the Southern Serenade stamp set.   

 Well, that is my intro cards from my short-stack.  Hope you enjoyed them!


Petal Palette for My Card Challenge

Do you ever have one of those stamp sets that just intrigues you?  From the moment you see it, visions and ideas go flashing through your mind?

Well, from the New 2018 Occasions Catalog (download now), Petal Palette is that stamp set for me.  And...it is available in an amazing bundle!  The framelit dies included are perfect, unexpected and fabulous.  Perfect, because it helps get around fussy cutting that so many do not like to do; unexpected with the AWESOME detailed strip; and fabulous for coordinating the product together. 

Here is my card that I made for a group challenge.  I was able to sit, play and create.  I am quite please with the results.  Do you like it?

New Paper in the Occasions Catalog

Ladies!  If you love paper as much as I do, I promise you are not going to be disappointed with the new Designer Series Paper available in the 2018 Occasions catalog.

I use to have this obsession with gold leafing and gilding.  I could put it everywhere!!!  I use to cover chipboard, wood, home decor items, furniture.... until the day I realized I was over-doing it.  Haven't done much since so that is why I am SO excited for "Painted With Love" (#145580) Specialty designer series paper.  It reminds me of gold leafing and gilding.  And it is beautiful!

Take a look for yourself.  Keep in mind, the below image does No justice!  You cannot see the shimmer and depth of the color of the paper.  

Painted With Love DSP 145580

The Sure Do Love You bundle coordinates very well with this paper and will be great on all cards and projects, but especially for Valentine's Day.
