Valentine’s projects using the Love You Always Suite

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!!

Love is in the Air blog hop banner

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).

                    True Love DSP            Love you always 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! 

Valentine's projects using the Love You Always Suite

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!

Three Easy Christmas Cards to Make

Blog Hop KB

Make Easy Christmas Cards with the Poinsettia Place Suite

Are you working on your Christmas cards? Perhaps you are starting to browse card ideas for inspiration, either way you are going to love this post as I am sharing with you three easy Christmas cards using the Poinsettia Place Suite from Stampin’ Up! 

Are these cards not the cutest?? I love making Christmas cards, and this suite makes it super easy for you to make as many cards as you can imagine.. 

Three Easy Christmas Cards to make

Also, I am participating on a Blog Hop, with an amazing group of fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world, to bring you lots of inspiration and keep you crafting! 

So let’s get started! shall we… 

Poinsettia Place Suite – The Possibilities!

As I mentioned I am sharing with you three super easy Christmas Cards using the Poinsettia Place Suite. This suite has a gorgeous designer series paper that you can either fussy cut or use the coordinating dies to get beautiful poinsettias to decorate your Christmas cards. 

You could also make your own poinsettias from scratch, using the Poinsettia Petals Bundle (in the picture below) and cardstock. However for the cards in this post I wanted to mainly focus on the designer series paper!! 

This suite also has a great vellum specialty paper which has flock! Oh gosh, your cards would look amazing and would have a wow factor using this specialty paper alone! and some of the images in this vellum paper can be cut using the dies as well!! 

Honestly I think that Stampin’ Up! is making it easier for us as they continue to coordinate more and more their products, whether it is by color coordination or by coordinating paper and stamp set bundles (dies or punches)! 

And finally I wanted to spend a few minutes talking about the pearls in this suite! these are perfect for the centers of the poinsettias! I particularly love them for when I make the poinsettias from scratch with the stamps and dies from the Poinsettia Petals bundle! 

What makes it even better is that you can color them using the blends or leave them as they come.. Either way you will love how they finish off your cards! they just add the perfect touch! 

I’ll be sharing more cards using this suite in future posts as I have been making so many of cards with this suite alone! so keep an eye for future card ideas on my blog.. 

Check the products from the Poinsettia Place Suite!! you can make the cutest cards with this suite! and get ready with your Christmas cards in no time

The Color Combination 

As usual I leaned on the designer series paper to come up with my color combination.. I keep thinking this is the easiest way to pick colors, as you are using what you already have on hand..  

This is my step 1 whenever I am making cards, I go over the designer series paper and start choosing which designs I want to use, I see if there are images I want to use as the background or as the focal point. and based on the sheets I pick a color combo.

If you ever struggle with color combinations, give it a try, you will see what a difference this makes!! 

At the same time I select the cardstock to use on the cards, that way I am picturing which pattern would go best with the different card bases colors. In my case I selected the Soft Suede as the card base that would go best with the Three Christmas Cards I had in mind. 

Sketches and Details 

After deciding which colors and what cardstock to use as well as the focal point on my cards, then I come up with a sketch to use for my cards. 

In this case, I knew I wanted to use the poinsettias from the designer series paper as the focal point, so I started thinking of sketches that would go well with the poinsettias, specially focusing on the size of the flowers.

In needed to have larges areas to be able to added them.. so you can see the sketches offer enough space on the card to add the poinsettias.

To finish off the cards I added wink of stella on the petals of the poinsettias and added crystal effects on the berries to add even more dimension to the cards.

Poinsettia Place Card Class

As you can see on the sneak peek in the left, you will be using the stamp bundle to make the poinsettias from scratch, as well as the beautiful vellum specialty paper on these cards.  Not to mention that you will also be using the pearls I talked about earlier.  You can see how they look colored and as they come.

Easy Birthday Card for World Card Making Day

World Card Making Day

Today I am sharing with you an easy Birthday Card to celebrate World Card Making Day!! And I am also participating in a blog hop with other demonstrators around the world who will be sharing more projects with you as we celebrate this day!

I know you will get lots and lots of ideas and inspiration, so make sure you visit all the participating blogs.

So without much further ado, here is my Birthday Card! ta-da!!

Easy Birthday Card to make

How to make an Easy Birthday Card

For this Birthday card I decided to use an easy for cool fun fold for you to try.. This is one of those Fun Folds that always look amazing no matter what theme, or paper pack or stamp set you use! 

So give it a try as you will see that you can make this cards with any DSP a.k.a. Pattern paper you already have… 

Speaking of which have you heard of the latest promotion Stampin’ Up! has about DSP??? nope?? 

Well, let me share with you that during October we have a selection of paper packs that are available at 15% discount!!! 

Is that not amazing??  I love using patterned paper for the majority of my cards as it makes it so easy to design my projects.. so definitely would recommend you check this promotion here

And if you are curious to know exactly which designer series paper are included in this section, then head over here to see the pack included and their discounted priced..  

If you have been following me for a while, you know that I use the designer series paper as a  way to get color combinations and even some of the embellishments as I love to either die cut or fussy cut some of the larger images for my cards..

I will be posting throughout this month about how to use the designer series paper so you get more ideas.. so keep coming back every week to get more inspiration..  

Ok but lets get back to the Birthday card for today.. Below you will see the sketch I used and other details for this card!!  And as usual you will find as well the video tutorial below, where you can see how to make this fun fold ..

The Sketch and other details

For this Birthday Card, I selected the Ornate Garden Suite, which has a great specialty designer series paper.  it has sheets with foil elements that just make it beautiful!

I picked the sheets I wanted to use and from there I selected the color combination!! This is by far the easiest way to come up with color combinations!!

You already have seen these colors together in the sheets you are using, so It is always a successful combination when you are making cards!! no need to know fancy color theories  to make cards that color coordinate beautifully 😉 

Once you have the color combination, then it is time to decide which card lay out to make!!! so looking for sketches is the next step.. 

sketches to playAs I have mentioned in previous posts, I love using sketches for my cards. This is an easy way to trigger my creativity in no time..

So if you ever find yourself not knowing what card to make, I encourage you to look for sketches and give it a try!!!

Believe me it never fails!!  

Once you have selected the sketch, start looking for ways to incorporate the designer series paper and how to embellish your card. 

In my case I decided to use the patterned paper for the background of my card, and a coordinating ribbon in the Terracotta Tile, which is part of the color combination I had selected. 

Additionally, I wanted to add a daisy flower mainly because this was part of the patterned paper I used. So I knew that would coordinate beautifully with the card.

For this flower I used both  sizes of the daisy punches.  You can watch the video tutorial below to learn how to make this flower step by step.

The Video Tutorial 

And as promised here is a video tutorial, where you can see step by step how to make this easy Birthday Card. I show you how you can make the flower with punches and also how to construct this Fun Fold with ease.

Three Valentine’s cards using From my Heart suite from Stampin’ Up

Do you send Valentine’s cards for your friends and loved ones? if you do, then this post is perfect for you! As I will show you how to make three easy Valentine’s cards that look amazing. 

Three Valentine’s cards using From my Heart suite from Stampin’ Up

As I mentioned above, today’s post is to share three easy to make Valentine’s cards, and for these cards I have used the “From my Heart” suite from Stampin’ Up! 

This suite is from the Spring Catalog and is filled with lots of products that are perfect for your Valentine’s cards. The “From my Heart” Designer Series Paper a.k.a. DSP or patterned paper is covered in foiled images that will surely help enhance all your projects! 

On this post you will learn how to make three easy Valentine's cards using the From my Heart suite from Stampin' Up!

The main colors on this DSP is Flirty Flamingo, Real Red and Whisper White, which go really well with all other products on this collection. 

As usual, this suite has a coordinating bundle. This is the Heartfelt Bundle, which consists of one stamp set and two punches that make coordinating hearts! how cute is that? 

In addition to these products, this suite also has heart doilies that are super cute! and they look so great when paired with the hear punches included in the heartfelt bundle!

Finally, this suite has as well a real red double stitched satin ribbon that coordinates really well with the DSP. 

Over all all the products on this suite coordinate beautifully and they will sure help you create easy and quick Valentine’s cards!

Valentine’s Card #1 

On this post you will learn how to make three easy Valentine's cards using the From my Heart suite from Stampin' Up!This card is made following a very simple lay out. As you can see the DSP is glued following the edge of card base. 

I then added a focal point using a piece of whisper white and basic black and then added a heart doily and a set of coordinating hearts. 

Please note that the whisper white heart was stamped with real read for the border and flirty flamingo for the sentiment. 

Additionally, I wanted an extra sentiment, so I added a banner with the sentiment stamped in basic black. 

To make this card pop up a bit more, I added two heart epoxy droplets that I colored using the dark cherry cobbler stampin’ blend a.k.a. alcohol marker. And finally I glue a bow made with the real red double stitched ribbon.  

Valentine’s Card #2

On this post you will learn how to make three easy Valentine's cards using the From my Heart suite from Stampin' Up!The second Valentine’s card is as easy as the first one. I used the DSP to decorate the front of the card but I added a little border in flirty flamingo. 

I then added the ribbon in a zigzag pattern and then glue the heart doily on top of the ribbon. 

Same as before, I made a coordinating heart using real red and the DSP to go on top of the doily, as well as a sentiment in real read and stamped in basic black. 

And to finish this card I added a heart epoxy droplet that I had previously colored with dark cherry cobbler stampin’ blend.  

Valentine’s Card #3

On this post you will learn how to make three easy Valentine's cards using the From my Heart suite from Stampin' Up!The third card is actually a fun fold!! who doesn’t like a fun fold, right? and when it is so easy, it’s even better!

Three birthday cards with the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set!

Did you see the three birthday cards with the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set that I created last week during my Facebook Live? I know you will fall in love with this new stamp set and all the products that coordinate with it. 

Best of all, the Lovely Lily Pad is FREE!!! yes, you read it right!! This stamp set is part of the sale-a-bration offering. 

If you are new to Sale-a-bration, let me tell you, this is the best time of the year, in terms of Stampin’ Up! because we all get free products every time we purchase products. Also, there are no limits, so we all get extra goodies with every order! is that not great??

You can see all the products available for FREE on this brochure!

Three birthday cards with the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set!

So without any more delay, let me show you the birthday cards I made last week! As usual these are super easy to recreate! 

Three easy birthday cards with the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set from Stampin' Up!

Like I mentioned at the beginning of this post, these birthday cards are using a set of products that coordinate with the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set, there are Lily Pad dies, that will help you cut out the images from the stamp set, and also give additional die cuts to embellish the card. 

Also, there is the Lily impressions designer series paper a.k.a. DSP or patterned paper, that goes really well with the stamp set and the dies. The colors on this DSP are bright and cheerful and it inspire you to create happy projects.  

Below you will see the video tutorial on how to make the three birthday cards using the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set, however I wanted to give you a bit of information on each of the cards before just showing the video. 

Birthday Card #1

Three easy birthday cards with the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set from Stampin' Up!

The first birthday card made with the lovely lily pad is actually a fun fold, which believe it of not is super easy to make! 

I did add a magnet to close the card shut, as I usually see that these type of card do not close shut when laying flat. 

Now to be honest, I glued too soon the DSP onto the card front, and so the magnet shows up. If I make this card again I would probably glue the magnet first and then add the DSP so that the magnet is hidden. I guess this is a lesson learned! 😂😂😂

Birthday Card #2

Three easy birthday cards with the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set from Stampin' Up!

The second birthday card is a fun layout, you can see that the card base is stamped tone on tome and the DSP layers are shifted to add interest. 

I then added a band and a circle to make my focal point pop up. 

As you can see from the picture, I added the detailed die cut, but before gluing it down, I sponged a little Melon Mambo to add a little color and make the die cut to stand a little better. I also sponged the leaves on the die cut to add some dimension. This is an easy trick and it adds a lot to the die cut!

Birthday Card #3

Three easy birthday cards with the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set from Stampin' Up!

The third birthday card is maybe my favorite, which is kind of odd, since I love purple. So one would think the first birthday card is my favorite, however, I felt as if all the colors and pieces coordinated perfectly on this card!

Not to mention that this card was the easiest of all! One thing to note is that I added a petal pink vellum circle on top of the whisper white circle and in person this add a really nice texture. 

I also love how the two detailed die cuts are laying behind the stamped lily! If you noticed I used different colors for these die cuts and these added a great contracts overall.  

Video Tutorial

And as mentioned earlier, here is the video tutorial where I go over how to make the three birthday cards using the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set as well as the other coordinating products. 

I show you step-by-step how to make them and go over measurements and colors in more detail.

Please know that because it is three cards in one video, this is a little long, so I recommend watching this video when you are winding down from your busy day. I know you will enjoy it more.

If you are interested in catching me live, you can do so every Thursday at 7pm CST on my Facebook Page, where I show how to make three cards using one set of products. 

I know you will get a lot of inspiration, and hopefully  you will get excited to make cards! 😉

Stampin’ Dreams Blog hop – Case a card

Stampin Dreams Blog Hop

Hi there!!! – Here we go again, it’s me participating in the Stampin’ Dreams blog hop for January!! make sure you hop with us as you will get lots of inspiration as you visit all participating blogs!!

I know it seems like lately I am participating in a lot of blog hops, but honestly I have fun at these and I get lots of inspiration when I play with them.

Also being very honest, I have my new resolution for 2020 that I need to step up on my blog and be more consistent with posting my cards in my blog. 

Committing to the blog hops keeps my behind on task.  It forces me to write even when I don’t feel like doing so to meet the deadline and therefore it helps me with consistency and accountability. 

Don’t get me wrong, I create cards on a regular basis, and in fact I share lots and lots of ideas on my Facebook page but I know I can do way better if I share those ideas as well in my blog!! what do you think?

What do you do to keep yourself on track on your NEW YEAR resolutions? for me is commitment with others..  It always force me to do better as I know others are counting on me and I definitely don’t want to let them down.

Blog Hop Theme – CASE a card!

OK, so back to our card project!!! The theme for this blog hop is actually CASE a card.  If you are not familiar with this term, let me explain it a bit. 

CASE means Copy and Share Everything! To be honest this is my favorite way to design cards! there are so many ways to CASE that I can go on and on for hours, but today I want to share with you one way I design my cards using patterned paper and CASE-ing (is that a word??? 🙄 )

Designing your cards with patterned paper 

This post has excellent ideas on how to design easy cards using patterned paper

For my cards today, I want to show you a quick an easy way to come up with your ideas with the CASE method. 

This was the idea I found on Pinterest to come up with the projects shown on my postFirst you find an idea for inspiration, in my case I found this Pin on Pinterest.  

Then, you see the elements that you like in the idea you are using for inspiration. 

In this case, I loved the layout and the fact that it was a card set. I also loved the use of designer series paper (DSP) for the background and the focal point. 

Finally, I loved how easy and simple these cards looked.  So when I decided this was the idea I wanted to CASE, I created an sketch to follow for my cards. 

 

The Sketch!!

Below is the sketch that follows the basic elements on the cards from the pin I wanted to CASE. 

Please note: I do not add all the elements from the card into the sketch, as you want to have a simple sketch to stretch your creativity, by thinking how you can play with it, how you can change it, or how you can exchange elements.

Sketch from Allie # 5

Having a sketch always helps you to follow a layout for a card. Additionally, it helps you to focus on the products you want to use.  I tend to do this a lot, to avoid copying exactly the same design.

You see, when you are watching the original card it sometimes can overwhelm you, thinking you might not have some elements on the collection of items you want to use to replace the ones you see in the card you are casing.

 Therefore, having a sketch takes that noise away, as a result you can think of what you have from the collection of products you want to use into your card. 

For example, the cards on the pin used linen thread under the circle, and in my case, I did not  add this to the sketch.  Similarly, you can see that for the sentiment, I added a banner on the sketch, however the cards on the pin do not have banners for the sentiment. 

Different sources to help you design your cards 

Since we have been talking about getting card ideas for you to CASE, I thought it would be helpful to share a list of sources you can use.

  • Old cards you have made in the past 
  • Stampin’ Up! catalogs (past or current)
  • Card magazines
  • Pinterest 
  • Sketches 

Additionally think of other ways you can CASE, in these cards, I used the layout for inspiration and that is what I copied for my cards. However, you can copy other things when CASE-ing.

The following ideas might be something to consider when designing your cards and CASE-ing. 

  • Color combos you liked 
  • Layout – as shown on these cards
  • Copy the same card, but change the colors or stamp set
  • Rotate the layout – if the card was made horizontal, try to make it vertical
  • Make the same card using another patterned paper collection 

I am sure these ideas will help you get your mind thinking on other ways you can design cards and make it easy, while getting a lot of sources to get lots of inspiration.

In the cards I am showing today, I wanted to focus on the Bird Ballard Suite from Stampin’ Up!, as I adore the designer series paper (DSP) and stamp set included in this collection. I then used the Follow your Art embellishment kit to compliment the cards. 

As usual, I looked at the back of the patterned paper pack (DSP) to get the color combo for my cards. This is the number one tip I can give you if you struggle with color combinations. Believe me, it never fails! 

For these cards I used the following color combos:

  • Calypso Coral, Basic Gray, Pool Party
  • Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Calypso Coral
  • Petal Pink, Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party 

At the end of this post you will see the full supply list of the products used for my cards. If you are interested in getting any of these products you can click at the pictures, and you will be taken to my online store, where you can purchase any of these items. As always I truly appreciate your support, this keeps me motivated in creating and sharing card ideas with you. 

Step-by-step instructions

Here is the Video tutorial where I show step-by-step on how to make these cards, I go over how I create the sketch from the pin I found in Pinterest and how I go about making decisions on mix and matching the designs from the designer series paper a.k.a. DSP or paper pack collection. 

Also, I go over the measurements and colors of the ink and cardstock. As a result you will get lots of information on this video. However, the downside is that the video is around 42 min. Therefore, I recommend you watch this one when you are winding down from your day so you can relax and enjoy it. 😉
