Valentine's Ideas

Valentine Glassine Goodie Bag

 

You know how I treasure those fun stamping days with the amazing Cindee Wilkinson and I always love to see what she comes up  :) ... so, last time we stamped together, she went above and beyond and created this project that just blew me away! Check out this great Valentine goodie bag she had prepared for us to make!!!  It features several of the Sending Love Suite products from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog, pgs 14 and 15.

 

DIY Stampin' Up! Sending Love Valentine Glassine Goodie Bag created with Occasions Catalog stamps, paper, ink and embellishments.

 

We made the bag with new Stampin' UP! Sending Love Glassine sheets and the Mini Treat Bag thinlit die.

Then we added 6 layers of FUN die cuts, doilies and embellishments plus ribbon and sequins!!

And here is amazing tip #2... color the new Lace Doilies ANY COLOR to coordinate with your theme, holiday or color palette!!!  Be gentle, they ARE doilies afterall, but just sponge by dabbing color straight up and down to add layers of color.

 

Amazing Stampin' Tip for Stampin' Up! Lace Doilies: use a sponge and ink to change the color of these gorgeous Lace doilies!

All of the fun elements like the die cut envelope and love note, the heart, doily, and banner were glued together then just clipped to the bag, so that the recipient can get their treat from the bag without destroying the pretty packaging.

After brayering color onto the red and white striped paper, we punched the banner end with the Banner Triple punch.  We only needed 1/2 a doily, so those go twice as far!

Stampin' Up! Falling in Love Suite Anniversary Card Idea

 

February is approaching.. that means we think about love, Valentines, and sending love notes to dear ones!  Today I am sharing a card I made with an anniversary greeting, but you can change it up for Valentine's day or any occasion depending on the greeting you stamp!

The Falling In Love Suite from the 2017 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog, pgs, 50-53 is just gorgeous!  The lovely elements are so perfect for creating PRETTY cards!! :)

 

Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog 2017 "Falling in Love" suite products - create an aniversary, wedding, love or Valentine card by changing the greeting! by Patty Bennett

 
The "secret" on this card is die cutting the So Detailed Thinlit with the Falling in Love paper... see below for more info!

The products I used from the Falling In Love Suite are:

  • Falling in Love Designer Paper, pg 51, #142788
  • Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon, pg 51, #142794
  • Lace Doilies, pg 51, #142793
  • Falling in Love embellishments, pg 51, #142791
  • So Detailed Thinlit dies, pg 52, #142751
  • Falling for You stamp set, pg 51, #143106 (wood mount) or #143109 (clear mount)
  • So in Love stamp set, pg 52, #143112 (wood mount) or #143216 (clear mount)

All of these Stampin' Up! products can be purchased in my online store by clicking any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post.


Stamping supplies for the Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog 2017 "Falling in Love" suite products - create an aniversary, wedding, love or Valentine card by changing the greeting! by Patty Bennett

 

The perfect embellishments for this card are the new Falling in Love embellishments (attached with glue dots) and the new Lace Doilies.  They are vanilla on one side and white on the other so they go a LONG way in your crafting projects... AND you can add color by sponging or spritzing them, so the possibilities are endless!

The secret to this card was to die cut the Falling in Love paper with the So Detailed thinlit die.  What a neat effect that gives this card!  Then I layered that piece onto the "lace" pattern from the same Falling in Love package of designer paper.  Don't you love the contrast? I think it's gorgeous!


Die Cut the So Detailed thinlit with a piece of Falling in Love designer paper from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Occasions catalog!  Beautiful results!

 

I made this card on both Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette cardstock bases - both of them work well.

The vanilla embellishments keep the soft look and doilies are perfect for this card.

You may have noticed that I used the Stitched Shape oval framelit piece... GUESS WHAT.. it's BACK IN STOCK on 1/16/17!! yay!!! CLICK HERE to see more info about these great Stitched Shape framelits!

I stamped the images from the So In Love stamp set on the tags above, and from the Falling For You stamp set on the card below.

And then... I thought why not add a dragonfly to the card!  I had one die cut out of Gold Foil paper (from THIS card) and decided to add it to my birthday card version of the So Detailed thinlit card!  The birthday greeting in the card below is from the Best Birds stamp set.

Darling Sending Love Valentine Card Ideas

 

It feels like we just had Christmas (ok, we DID!) and can you believe Valentine's Day is only ONE MONTH away!?  Wow!

You still have time to order some fun new crafting supplies to make Valentine cards, goodie bags, tags or decorations!

 

Sending Love Suite Valentine card ideas from the Stampin Up! 2017 Occasions catalog featuring Sending Love paper stack, Sealed with Love stamp set and Love Notes framelits, by Patty Bennett

 

I created these 2 Valentine cards using the Sealed with Love bundle and the Jar of Love bundle from Stampin' UP!.  Bundles are always priced at a money-saving 10% discount, so don't miss that when shopping in my Stampin' UP! store!

The Sealed with Love bundle is new in the 2017 Occasions catalog, and you'll probably recognize the Jar bundle from the annual catalog.

 

Sending Love Suite Valentine card ideas from the Stampin Up! 2017 Occasions catalog featuring Sending Love paper stack, Sealed with Love stamp set and Love Notes framelits, and Jar of Love bundle by Patty Bennett

 

The Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack from Stampin' Up! is found on page 15 of the 2017 Occasions catalog.  I know you will love this stack!!  The red and white patterns will take you through the whole year for your crafting projects, not just Valentine's!


Sending Love Suite Valentine card ideas from the Stampin Up! 2017 Occasions catalog featuring Sending Love paper stack, Sealed with Love stamp set and Love Notes framelits, and Jar of Love bundle by Patty Bennett

 

Above & Below:  For this top fold Real Red Valentine card, I cut a piece of Sending Love paper at 4" x 5-1/2" to cover almost all of the front of the card.  Then I used a strip about 3" x 6" to cut the heart border with the unique framelit die cut in the Love Notes Framelit set!  See below for more info on this die and how it cuts these 3-d hearts.

I stamped some Real Red hearts from the Every Occasion stamp set (pg 110 Annual Stampin' Up! catalog) inside the Jar stamped image, then die cut the jar, and added more hearts from the Sealed with Love Bundle (pg 14 Occasions catalog) on Stampin' Dimensionals.

The stamps on the tag are all from the Sealed with Love stamp set, and the dies are from the Love Notes framelits (also sold as a bundle).

Below: I noticed this adorable little heart border in the Everyday Jars framelit set while I had it out, so I thought I'd die cut some Real Red hearts to add to the jars of hearts.  :)

Valentine Card version #2:

 Above and Below: for the 2nd card, I flipped the die cut and put it on the left side of the card, and did a polkadot theme with the Sending Love paper stack.  I love polkadots! 

The darling tiny envelope and "love note" are also from the Sealed with Love bundle!

Falling Petals Love Card Valentine Idea

 

This LOVE card can be created for Valentine's Day, for an anniversary, a wedding or just for someone special! 

I used the Falling Petals embossing folder for the background of this sweet card, and got my inspiration from page 50 of the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.

 

Falling Petals embossing folder "Love" card featuring Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog supplies, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

You can use this embossing folder background to look like falling petals, or like hearts rising from the bottom of the card.  I elected to use it to look like hearts!

I embossed 4" x 5-1/4" panels of Soft Sky and Pool Party with the Falling Petals embossing folder and then mixed and matched and used Fast Fuse to adhere them to Soft Sky and Pool Party top folding cards.  I liked the various monochromatic blue tones achieved by combining these 2 colors.

 

Falling Petals embossing folder "Love" / Valentine card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog supplies, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

For the focal point on this card I combined several Stampin' Up! products.  I layered these on top of the embossed piece:

  • a "flag" using the Sending Love Glassine sheets, pg 14, #142734 (end punched with Triple Banner punch)
  • on top of the flag: Lace Doily, pg 51, #142793
  • on top of the doily: die cut leaves with Crumb Cake cardstock & May Flowers framelits, pg 194 #140276
  • on top of the leaves: die cut heart with Soft Suede cardstock & Sunshine Wishes thinlits, pg 194, #141489
  • on top of the heart: "flag" using Very Vanilla cardstock, end punched with Triple Banner punch
  • on top of the flag: "love" die cut with Crumb Cake cardstock and Sunshine Wishes thinlits, pg 194, #141489
  • embellishments: as shown below, I used both the Falling in Love embellishments, pg 51 #142791, and the Sending Love embellishments, pg 15, #142735

 Multipurpose glue #110755 was the best adhesive for most of these layers.

Pyramid Pals Penquin I Love You card

 

I do love you .. yes, I do! This was one of the cards I made for our son Jason for Valentine's day.. he and I both share a love for penguins, so I thought this would made him smile and it did!

Pyramid Pals / Playful Pals stamp set and matching framelit dies from Stampin' UP! - such a cute penguin "I Love You" card - great for Valentines Day!!  I dressed up the Penguin with the Snow Friends scarf and top hat! :)   card by Patty Bennett

 

I used the adorable Pyramid Pals Thinlit dies and the coordinating Playful Pals stamp set (these are on pgs 44/45 of the 2016 Occasions catalog).  I dressed up my penguin with a scarf and top hat from the Snow Friends framelit dies (carried over from the Holiday catalog - see all the carry over bundles on pg 48 of the Occasions catalog - and see all products used for this card at the bottom of this post). 

In the background of my Valentine card, you'll notice I embossed the Whisper White piece with the Happy Heart embossing folder, and layered part of a Project Life card onto the background as well.  I also embellished it with a die cut heart from the Cups and Kettles framelit set!  I layered it all onto a folded Real Red card.

Cindee created the cute animals below, and gave me the penguin, so I used it as inspiration for my card above!

 

Playful Pals / Pyramid Pals bundle from Stampin' Up! creates cute 3-d paper animals for party favors, decorations, candy treat holders, and more!

 

This bundle will let you create great little 3-d boxes for classroom treats, party favors, co-worker gifties or decorations for parties!

DIY Bloomin' Heart Valentine card featuring Stampin' Up! thinlit, Botanicals vellum (from Sale a Bration), and the Bloomin' Love stamp set heart and banner. Love Blossoms Embellishment kit is the perfect touch for adding a vintage touch to this card by Patty Bennett, pattystamps.com

The amazing and gorgeous Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Heart Thinlit die is so pretty and so versatile!  You can either cut it out and layer it onto your project (see THIS POST) or you can try the technique from my card above... die cut it but leave it in the piece of paper you put through the Big Shot and only push out the little inside detail pieces! (do that with your Big Shot Die Brush).

Find this Bloomin' Heart die on pg 16 in the new 2016 Occasions Catalog, and find the Big Shot Die Brush on page 19.  You can also click on the photos of each product at the bottom of this post to see them online and purchase in my online store.

I think you could use this for a Valentine or an I Love You card.. maybe an anniversary or wedding.. just change out the Friend Greeting to something else!

Sending you Bear Hugs for Valentine's Day!

 

Stampin' Up! is amazing when it comes to stamp set artwork in their catalogs.. I am just amazed at every single creative stamp set, the matching/coordinating framelits or thinlits, punches, papers, and tons of accessories in the 2016 Occasions Catalog!!

And without exception, the BEAR HUGS stamp set is so creative and fun!!  Who doesn't want a BEAR HUG for Valentine's Day!? 

Create a cute Bear Hugs Valentine Card with Stampin' UP! Supplies including: Hearth & Home Window frame thinlit, Bear Hugs stamp set & Framelit die bundle, Color Me Irresistible woodgrain paper, and It's my Party Enamel Dots.  I Love You This Much card by Patty Bennett, www.pattystamps.com

Don't you love my bear holding his Valentine, peeking out the window at us?  I stamped him with Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla cardstock then used my AquaPainter to lightly go over his fur and slightly blend the ink color.  Cindee and I made this card together yesterday... we had so much fun! :)

This seriously adorable Bear Hugs stamp set and matching framelit dies are available as a bundle.. save 15% when you buy them together!! The Bundle is available in wood mount or clear mount.. see it on pg 40 of the 2016 Occasions catalog.

Yes, he is even sporting a red bow tie, just for Valentine's Day!  The bow tie stamp and die are in the bundle!

Another die that I used in this card is the Hearth & Home window thinlit.. I die cut it out of the Color Me Irresistible paper with the woodgrain pattern.. too cute!  I sponged some Soft Suede ink onto the paper and the woodgrain pattern resisted the ink for a cool effect!  It's found on pg 142 in the Annual Catalog.

I Love You This Much card by Patty Bennett, www.pattystamps.com

Coloring in all of the little flowers was quick and fun with the Stampin' Write markers.  I used Calypso Coral, Real Red, Watermelon Wonder, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Cucumber Crush.. basically my "go to colors" right now!

I added some yellow enamel dots to the centers of some flowers for dimension.  The dots are on pg 6 of the Occasions catalog in the It's My Party suite.

The window box is die cut from the Love Blossoms 6x6 Designer Series Paper pack and the Hearth & Home window frame die on my Big Shot.

138439 Stampin' UP! Color Me Irresistible In Color paper - embossed images on white and on the Stampin' UP! In Colors.  Customizable Designer Paper!

The Color Me Irresistible paper package comes with 6 sheets that are already colored in the In Colors, like the Tip Top Taupe sheet here with the woodgrain embossed resist image, and it also comes with 6 White on White sheets.. so you can custom color those 6 sheets with any color using your Aqua Painter, Spritzer, Sponge, Dauber, Brayer... endless color possibilities!

When assembling your card, I found it easiest to put the die cut bear on the Whisper White cardstock that was going behind the Window Frame die cut, then trim the excess bear image away from the white rectangle.  I layered a window sheet on top and then the window frame die so that in person it really does look like a window!

Glimmery Valentine Heart Card

 

One of the very best products in the new 2016 Occasions catalog from Stampin' UP! is this glorious Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper!!   It's so stunning in person... I know it's pretty in the photos, but it's even better in person!!! :)

Love Blossoms heart card featuring Blushing Bride Glimmer paper and the Bloomin' Heart Thinlit die from Stampin' Up!.  Card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

This pretty card could be used for Valentine's day, for an anniversary, for a wedding, or just because I Love You!

I've combined layers of the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper stack with the Blushing Bride Glimmer paper and it's just so pretty!

Love Blossoms heart card featuring Blushing Bride Glimmer paper and the Bloomin' Heart Thinlit die from Stampin' Up!.  Card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

We die cut this pretty heart using the Bloomin' Heart thinlit die at the OnStage Stampin' UP! event last November, and we got to use the GREAT Big Shot Die brush and foam pad to help remove the little pieces from the die. It works like a charm, especially when you use the Precision Plate in your Big Shot when die cutting the heart or any other die that is really intricate.

A few of the pretties you'll notice on this project, are the Curvy Corner Trio Punch on the corners of the Glimmer Paper, and the pretty glimmery pearls from the new Love Blossoms Embellishment pack!

Love Blossoms heart card featuring Blushing Bride Glimmer paper and the Bloomin' Heart Thinlit die from Stampin' Up!.  Card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 I also tied this card up with the 5/8" organza white ribbon.. it truly goes with almost any project and is a must have in your ribbon arsenal!

I added the extra little flowers to the heart.. they are also die cut with the Love Blossoms paper stack paper and the little flowers in the Bloomin' Heart thinlit set.

Thought you might like a close up of the patterns in the Love Blossoms paper stack:

Wood You Be Mine Valentine's for my Guys

 

Woodworking, Valentine's Cards and a Hot Date!

I just had to share the "manly Valentine's" I made for my two Sweethearts...

They are both woodworking enthusiasts so I decided this stamp set "wood" be perfect for their Valentine's Cards!  See the Wood You Be Mine stamp set here!

Wood-you-be-mine-valentine-cards-stampin-up-pattystamps

If you want to hear about our "hot date" for Valentine's Day... I'll fill you in on that at the end of this post :)

Wood-you-be-mine-valentine-card-fallen-for-you-stampin-up-pattystamps

In addition to the new Wood You Be Mine stamp set, I used several pieces of paper from the Adventure Bound Paper Stack... it is a GREAT paper stack, especially for anyone who likes the outdoors or for guy cards!  Find it on pg 40 of the Occasions catalog or HERE in my online store.

Wood-you-be-mine-valentine-card-inside-2-stampin-up-pattystamps

Wood-you-be-mine-valentine-card-stampin-up-pattystamps-3

I cut around some of the logs above, and pieced it over another piece of paper from the same Adventure Bound paper stack... I like these 2 pieces together!

I tore pieces of the Adventure Bound paper stack for the inside of the cards.. I really like how both of the insides turned out!!

(UPDATE... they liked their cards!! :)  Yay!)

The photo below was taken a couple years ago when they were making organizational products for crafters.. my woodworkers..

 Ok, so back to the Hot Date...

I have been wanting one of these turning organizer trays for a LONG time.. I kept seeing them on Pinterest, and last week when I found out that they are available right here locally at Harbor Freight, I was .. shall we say EXCITED!!!!!!

For Valentine's Day we decided that we were taking our first day off since Christmas to go run errands and stop at Harbor Freight to get this tray!!

Valentines-harbor-freight-revovling-storage-tray

So yes, that was our HOT DATE for Valentine's day... a trip to Harbor Freight, a few other errands and lunch at Cocina Medina!

It was a very fun day off, and Eric and Jason LOVE Harbor Freight because it's nothing but tools and hardware!!  As I type this, they are both putting it together for me and I'll share pix of what I organize in it in a future blog post.

Hope you all had a great Valentine's day with those you love!

Update on the Valentine's for the Office cards

 

You may remember that I blogged about the handmade Valentine cards I sent in to my hubby's office for the guys to select from... well, I asked you which set of card you thought the guys would like best.. and I have an update..

The "Love Story" Project Life card cards and the Stacked with Love cards went first (See them all here).  One person selected the Sheltering Tree cards.

Since these Project Life cards were the most popular, I thought I'd do an update with more info on them.  These were SO easy.. Here is the HOW TO:

  • I just grabbed some of the Love Story Project Life cards (see them on pg 189 of the annual catalog or here online) and I trimmed 1/2" off the length so they'd fit perfectly on a standard size card! How easy is that!?
  • I cut and folded Real Red cardstock as the base.. super simple!
  • I stamped I DO LOVE YOU in Real Red on the card below.  You'll find that great stamp on pg 24 of the Occasions catalog, or see the Big On You set here online.

 

Project-life-love-story-valentine-cards-stampin-up-2

I added the sweet little "love" heart on the Love you to the Moon card .. the heart is from the You Brighten my Day free Sale a Bration set on pg 11 of the Sale a Bration catalog.  I punched it out with the Itty Bitty Punch pack and then put an Itty Bitty Epoxy heart sticker on top!  See below at the bottom of this post for ordering info.

Project-life-love-story-valentine-cards-stampin-up-3

The only thing I added on the cards above was to stamp you on the card on the left.. that's in the Countless Sayings 2 stamp set, seen here online.

  Itty-bitty-epoxy-sticker-heart

Isn't it so cool how the love stamp from the "You Brighten My Day" Sale a Bration set coordinates with the Itty Bitty Punch pack heart punch and the Itty Bitty Epoxy stickers! Wow! Way to go Stampin' Up! for all these coordinating products!!!

Sending you a Little Love

 

I have a couple more Valentine's cards filled with love for you ... since it is Valentine's week.. right?  Well, I am IN LOVE with the beautiful flower stencil piece found in the Stampin' Up! Artisan Embellishment kit!!! 

Read on for more details about creating this flower background with the stencil:

Artisan-embellishment-cards-snuggles-smooches-love-stampinup

Can you go wrong with Black, White and Red?

I think not.

LOVE CARD on left: The cute images are from the Snuggles and Smooches stamp set.  Do you recognize them from yesterday's blog post?  And the tiny love heart is a FREE CHOICE stamp set during Sale a Bration (from the You Brighten my Day set).

LOVE CARD on right: this sentiment is from the Build a Bouquet set

 

Artisan-embellishment-cards-snuggles-smooches-love-stampinup-tag

So you're wondering how I created that beautiful floral background, right?

Grab one of the stencils in your Artisan Embellishment kit (pg 27 Occasions catalog or HERE online) and a sponge dauber, and apply ink onto your cardstock!  Alternating between light and dark really gives this interesting dimension.

Artisan-embellishment-kit-sponge-flowers-stampin-up
 

Artisan Embellishment kit available here online.

I used Rose Red ink and my Sponge Dauber for these samples.

I'm just tickled over how well these products coordinate... I LOVE it when a stamp matches a punch.. and then when you find an embellishment created just for the image.. wow!! TOO FUN!!  Itty Bitty Accents punch and Epoxy Stickers are the bomb!

Artisan-embellishment-itty-bitty-epoxy-sticker-heart

 

I was looking for a sentiment with "love" in it, and I came across this one in the Build a Bouquet stamp set.. it's on pg 29 in the Occasions catalog, or here in my online store.  I think it just fits this tag perfectly, and I loved the scripty font and the message!

Artisan-embellishment-cards-build-bouquet-flower-stampinup

Artisan-embellishment-cards-build-bouquet-flower-stencil-stampinup-tag

I cut a 2" wide strip of Whisper White cardstock and punched the top with my Ornate Tag Topper Punch, stamped the sentiment with Rose Red ink, then added 2 pieces of Stacked with Love Washi Tape.  I tied a piece of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and Sahara Sand Lace trim on the top of the tag.

 The tiny hearts paper is from the Stacked with Love paper stack - limited time only and it's the best seller in the Occasions catalog!! Find it on pg 5.

Artisan-embellishment-cards-build-bouquet-flower-stencil-stampinup

 

As you can see, the Artisan Embellishment kit comes with LOTS of goodies in it.. I'll have a video showing more of the contents of this kit on Friday, Feb. 20th, so please check back then for more info and ideas!

 

How-to-punch-tip

 Stamp Tip!  Remember.. always stamp first, then use your punch "upsidedown" to center it over your stamped image, then punch!

Valentine's Cards for the Office

 

My Hubby works in an engineering office with about 10 men, and I guess they were talking about Valentine's and cards and all that jazz last week... so I volunteered to make some cards to send in to the office so that the guys could pick a card to send or give to their wife, girlfriend, etc.  

I couldn't settle on just one Valentine Card design, so I made several different selections... which ones do you think they'll like best?

 

Valentine Card Selection #1: Project Life Love Story cards

Project-life-love-story-valentine-cards-stampin-up

 

Valentine Card Selection #2: Sheltering Tree heart cards

Sheltering-tree-valentines-for-the-office-stampin-up

 

Valentine Card Selection #3: Stacked with Love DSP cards

Stacked-with-love-valentines-for-the-office-stampin-up

 

I'll be back in a day or 2 with an update on which cards they liked best and some more details on how I made and embellished the cards.

What a sweet little goodie treat this would make for your co-workers, bank teller, Post Office worker, etc.!!  Give this for Valentine's Day or anytime!

Stacked-with-love-post-it-note-holder-stampin-up-2

I found these cute printed Post-it Note pads in the Dollar Spot at Target and decided they'd make great little gifties!!  Of course, that means decorating them a bit with Stampin' Up! cardstock and embellishments!!!

You will need the Stampin' Up! Stacked With Love paper stack for this project. See it on pg 5 of the Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog or HERE in my online store.

HOW TO MAKE the Post-It Note Holder

Stacked with Love paper stack available here in my online store!

Since my Post-It Note was about 3"x3", my cardstock strip was about 3" x 9" which allowed me to wrap it all the way around and make the little stapled flap to give it that fun matchbook look.

I decorated it with a piece of 2-3/4" square Stacked with Love striped paper and punched hearts with the Sweetheart punch and one of the other patterns in the Stacked with Love paper stack.  Rhinestones and Red Ribbon finish off the sweet project.
