As I’m racing to finish up final packing and blog post scheduling (plus new video tutorials too!) I wanted to quickly hop on to share a card that I totally thought I had shared a while ago, but apparently didn’t!
It is an easy card that takes advantage of some of the fun stuff you get in the Love Blossoms Embellishment kit – specifically the GORGEOUS Blushing Bride ribbon and the cute pink sequins!
This whole card started out with a sample we made at OnStage in November – a Stampin’ Up event for Demonstrators where we get to play with the upcoming catalog products. Well the Bloomin’ Heart thinlit die was coming out and so we used it to cut out a piece of the Love Blossoms designer paper, and then stamped the flowers over the top – yes, they are directly on the heart – using the flowers from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set. Quick and easy. Well, easy if you have the Stampin’ Up die brush to pop everything out! (Check out my video tutorial on the die brush to see what I mean!)
But then I needed to do something with it – so I started to look at other things in the suite and loved the Embellishment kit. I layered the ribbon behind a strip of pattern paper from the same paper pack and added a few sequins at the bottom. Then I just created the sentiment with a scrap of Whisper White cardstock that I stamped the vines from the same stamp set in Crumb Cake and the sentiment in Memento Black. Trim the ends and you are done!
And yes… I know that “Be Mine” makes you think of Valentine’s Day, but this is great as an anniversary card or anytime you just need to send someone some love. Your spouse, I’m sure, never gets tired of hearing that you love them!
