Valentine’s is around the corner, and with that in mind I thought to share a couple of Valentine’s projects using the Love you Always Suite. I am sure these ideas will help you when you are planning for your Valentine’s projects.
But even better, this post is part of a blog hop which theme is LOVE!! And in this blog hop my fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators will be sharing projects that will inspire you to create your your Valentine’s projects!
So let’s get started!!
Valentine’s projects using the Love You Always Suite
For my projects I decided to showcase the Love You Always Suite, which has two beautiful designer series papers (DSP).
The True Love DSP showcases all designs in black and white. And the Love you Always DSP features monochromatic designs with foil details in Rococo Rose, Sahara Sand, and Blushing Bride.
Both of these designer series papers coordinate beautifully as you will see in both of my projects.
The Color Combination
Once I know which pattern paper I want to use in my projects, then I select a color combination from it. This makes it easy to select the embellishments, and cardstock to use.
For these projects I decided to use the following color combination.
Using the Designer Series Paper (DSP)
Since the True Love DSP has larger flower images, I decided to use these as my focal point. Plus these would be perfect for coloring them in any color using the alcohol blends.
Following the color combination I selected from the paper pack, I knew I have to color the flowers in Rococo Rose. You can see the flowers in the picture below.
This is why I love Stampin’ Up! products! It is always easy to color coordinate all the elements in my projects. I just need to pick a color and then select inks, embellishments, cardstocks in the same color and everything coordinates!
You can watch the video tutorial below where you can see step by step how I colored these flowers with the stampin’ blends a.k.a. alcohol markers.
I share with you lots of tips on how I use the alcohol markers to have a nice blending with the colors. And as you can see I added wink of stella to the flowers to give it a shimmery look.
Valentine’s Card & Treat Holder
As you can see below, here are my Valentine’s projects.. this is an easy and cute Valentine’s card with a coordinated treat holder.
Both of the sentiments come from the Always in my Heart stamp set. These sentiments are great, as these can be used for so many other occasions and not just Valentine’s, and the font is just really nice. I love when the sentiment mixes different type of fonts, don’t you agree?
For the Treat holder I use the brand new Love You Always treat box, which was really easy to ensemble and even better it does not uses any glue!!! Plus I was surprised with the size as this can fit easily fit about 4-5 chocolate candies.. These boxes are about 4 x 3 x 1.5 inches, so these are great for little party favors!
