Valentine's Day

Sending Love Valentine Cards for the Office Guys

 

Valentine's Day can be special for many reasons.  One of my favorite memories was exchanging Valentines with my classmates when I was a little girl, so of course I always made sure that our son Jason had special Valentines to exchange when he was in school.  Now he's 25 and since I can no longer make Valentines for him to take to school, I decided to send in Valentine goodies to his office (he and my husband work at the same office).  Click Here to see what I sent this year.

After I sent those goodie bags in to the office last week, my husband said the guys at the office would love to have handmade Valentine cards to give to their sweethearts, so, I made a batch and sent them in to the office.  Eric and Jason were texting me throughout the day and letting me know that the guys loved them (and Nancy - office manager, too!). :)

Above: these are the Valentine cards I made and sent to the office.  I used the Sending Love Paper Stack on all of the cards.. the cute red and white patterns are perfect for Valentine's day and beyond!!  I also used the cute gray and white heart pattern from the A Little Foxy paper stack.

Each Valentine is embellished with either silver or gold  -  Sale a Bration metallic ribbon, enamel shapes, rhinestones, etc.

All of the cards also feature hearts die cut from the Stampin' Up! Sweet & Sassy heart framelit die set. The heart with the Happy Valentine's day greeting is punched with Whisper White cardstock and the Sweetheart punch. The greeting is from the January Paper Pumpkin kit.

The Valentine above features a "love" die cut from the Sunshine Wishes set of framelits.  I used Clear Wink of Stella on the Real Red die cut to make it sparkle.

 

I incorporated the new (personal favorite!!) Lace Doilies from pg 51 of the Occasions catalog.. they are so fun - white on one side and vanilla on the other!!

Love Sparkles Valentine with Window Box Heart die cut

 

Thank you for your kind comments about this Valentine card idea in my previous video (see it here), featuring the Window Box thinlit die as an accent piece!  I wanted to share a few more details about this card today.

 

Valentine card idea stamped with Stampin' Up! Love Sparkles stamp set, and die cut with heart image from the Window Box thinlit die set. Red and White patterned paper from Sending Love paper stack.  by Patty Bennett

 

As you can see from the little heart piece I'm holding above, I used that part of the Window Box thinlit die set to die cut the border of the Whisper White cardstock and then layered it over Real Red to reveal the die cut heart border!  I placed it in the center of the Whisper white strip first, and die cut it in the Big Shot, then moved it left, then right then to the edges. So 5 total die cuts.

 

142762 Stampin Up! Window box thinlit die, click order online at www.PattyStamps.com

 

You'll find this die set on page 43 of the 2017 Occasions catalog, or HERE in my online store.

 

Truly, isn't this the most versatile thinlit set you've seen in a long time!?  wow!!!  Not only can you make amazing boxes with this but you can use all the other pieces to create other intricate die cut images on other crafting projects!

 

Valentine card idea stamped with Stampin' Up! Love Sparkles stamp set, and die cut with heart image from the Window Box thinlit die set. Red and White patterned paper from Sending Love paper stack.  by Patty Bennett

 

This Valentine card idea starts with the folded Real Red cardbase, then 2 layers of red and white designer paper from the Sending Love paper stack.   The white printed layer is scalloped with the Best Badge punch.  If you don't know how to do that, check out this blog post.

I finished off this card with LOVE stamped in Real Red onto Whisper White and die cut with the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits and the Love Sparkles stamp set (pg 53 in the Occasions catalog).  I added some silver metallic hearts and 2 layers of ribbon.  The Red ribbon is from the Sending Love 2 pack in the Occasions catalog and the pretty silver and white ribbon is one of your FREE product choices in the Sale a Bration catalog (see it here).

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!! 

 

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

 

Stampin' UP! Sending Love (Occasions Catalog) Supplies we used:

  • Sealed with Love Stamp set, pg 15
  • Love Notes Framelits, pg 14
  • Sending Love paper stack, pg 15
  • Sending Love Glassine Sheets, pg 14
  • Sending Love embellishments, pg 15
  • Real Red, Whisper White and Pool Party cardstock and ink
  • Lace Doilies, pg 51
  • Gold Binder Clips (annual catalog) pg 177

 

Using the Sealed with Love bundle stamps and dies makes it easy to create tiny love notes and envelopes as shown on the bag front!!!

 

You'll also want to grab your Sponge Brayer and a Stampin' Sponge and some ink... because you'll be able to change the color on your Sending Love paper and the Lace Doilies!!!

 

Amazing Stampin' Tip for Stampin' Up! Sending Love red and white paper: use a sponge brayer to change the color combo of this paper!

 

ABOVE: Check out that AMAZING TIP!  Just grab your Sponge Brayer and an ink pad and roll color right on to the red and white Sending Love paper to create a whole new look!!! 

AMAZING!

 

BELOW: a closer look at the red and white patterns in the Sending Love paper stack, available HERE in my online store.

 

142733 Stampin' UP! Sending Love paper stack perfect red and white paper for DIY Valentines and other crafting projects

 

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!

 

If you enjoy my Stanpin' Tips, you may want to visit my Stamping and Crafting TIP PINTEREST BOARD here for 291 other crafty tips!

 

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!

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.

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! 

Did you see all the fun animals you can make with this bundle (watch the video below)?  Of course don't let your imagination be limited to just animals.. look at these cuties by Nicole!

I think this would make a fun Valentine... isn't that a cute saying.. You Send Me Soaring! :)

The blue swirly paper in the background of both of my samples today is from the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series paper pack, found on pg 19 of the 2016 Sale a Bration Brochure.  I thought it was a great background for the airplane image in this stamp set! I used  a heart from the January Paper Pumpkin refill kit (available to subscribers here).

When I opened my January kit and saw the hearts I was in love!!  I didn't really need a banner because I just don't decorate our home for the seasons throughout the year (I was better at that when Jason was little!)... so, I decided to make cards out of the supplies in the kit, and I added my own cardstock and designer paper!

Bloomin' Heart Thinlit Valentine Card

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.

 

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

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!
