I have loved working with the new All My Love Suite of products from the 2019 Stampin’ UP! Occasions catalog! (pages 4 to 7) I thought I’d share a few tips and photos with you today that I’ve discovered as I’ve been working with the Be Mine Stitched Heart frameltis and All my Love designer paper in this amazing suite!
Die cut lots of Be Mine hearts, keep them on hand for your Valentine cards and treat packages!
Be sure to cut at least one of each of the images in your Be Mine Stitched Heart framelits.. you never know what lovely pieces you’ll discover like the gorgeous detailed floral heart below! It’s my FAVORITE in the entire framelit set!
Use Stampin’ Blends markers (here) to color on the Clear Epoxy Heart embellishments.. use ANY color you wish! I’ve found that using a darker color yields a lighter result… below is Dark Cherry Cobbler… it appears more like Real Red on the Epoxy Heart.
I hope you enjoyed these paper crafting tips as you get ready to order supplies for your Valentine projects!

I have a FREE Video Tutorial for you today to show you how to make these beautiful cards that combine the Petal Promenade paper and the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut paper, both from Stampin UP!. I got the original idea from my friend and Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator Gloria Plunkett, then I just kept designing more cards until I had dozens of them. You'll see most of them in the video below 🙂
All of my cards today feature the Beautiful Promenade stamp set and coordinating framelit dies (available as a 10% off money-saving bundle!), and Stampin' UP! ink and cardstock. All supplies are available in my online Stampin' UP! store by clicking any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post.
Above: I layered the Delightfully Detailed laser cut paper onto the floral frame paper from the Petal Promenade pack shown below. See all the details and step by step "how to" in the video below in this post.

I really like this greeting (below).. wishing you a lifetime of love & happiness.. it would make a terrific wedding or anniversary card!! Or even a greeting on a bridal shower card, right? It's found on page 118 in the current 2018-2019 catalog, in the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.
The large flower is stamped using the Beautiful Promenade set, and die cut with the coordinating Beautiful Layers thinlit dies (sold in a 10% off bundle! #148389, or see it on pg 107). The leaves are also die cut from the same thinlit die set.
All of my card bases are Petal Pink cardstock, and the mat layer is Flirty Flamingo cardstock.
The greetings are all stamped on a Stitched Shape Framelit oval with Flirty Flamingo ink.
The greeting below, and the "live every moment" greeting are both found in the Ribbon of Courage stamp set.

Have you discovered the fun of inking your own Spectrum (rainbow) pad yet? You can purchase an uninked Stampin' UP! Spectrum pad (here) and use your ink refills to create your own rainbow, or, your own choice of color spectrum!!!
Today I am sharing a couple of my own Spectrum Rainbow Ink Pad card samples, and several tips with you!
My cards today all feature the same rainbow pad that I inked with Stampin' Up! ink refills (see below for color combo). I used the Ribbon of Courage stamp set, the Beautiful Day stamp set, and the Springtime Impressions butterfly die cut on my colorful cards! For the card above, I layered my stamped piece onto Gorgeous Grape and Pineapple Punch cardstock!
I have a challenge for my Luv 2 Stamp Group this coming month to create projects using their own inked rainbow pad, to earn fun prizes, so I thought I would play along and give them some examples to jump start their creativity!! Thinking about joining my team?click here to read more – and don't forget about the 10 free ink pad offer in July when you join!
To create the rainbow butterfly die cut, I tapped the rainbow pad across my Whisper White cardstock, then spritzed it with water… after it was dry, I die cut the butterfly in my Big Shot.
Some TIPS for creating your own rainbow pad…
think about a color combo you'd like to use
do you want a true "ROYGBIV" rainbow? or a monochromatic pad with different shades of all one color?
For this Spectrum rainbow pad, I used this color combo:
When inking a larger stamp such as the butterfly below (from the Beautiful Day stamp set) or the Thank You stamp from the Thankful Thoughts set, you can get almost all, if not all, of the colors on your pad. When using smaller images like the heart from the Ribbon of Courage set (1st card in this post), you can just capture a couple of the colors!
Tip: I stamped this butterfly once on the card and again on a scrap, cut it out and then added it as a 2nd layer to the card.. I love the extra dimension! I also added some Glitter Enamel dots and did a little splattering with my Stampin' Write marker!
The top fold card base is Mango Melody cardstock.
I hope you enjoyed these ideas! Think of all the different color combos you can create with your own uninked pad and all 50 of your Stampin' Up! reinkers!! Find them ALL in the product snapshots below.. click on any one to go to my online store.
