Heartfelt Love Notes January 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit, We Must Celebrate, Flying Home, Heart Happiness - Valentines Mini Cards - I

It's a very mild, mostly sunny day out today with a high of 39.  We are to expect another January snow melt down through next Monday with highs in the low to mid 40's and rain, snow mix and snow.  Crazy Michigan weather once again!

My share for today is a Mini Valentines Card that I designed using lots of Stampin' Up's new products and SU's January 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit called Heartfelt Love Notes.  Let's take a look at my first Mini Card:

My Card Base is Whisper White Cardstock cut at 3-1/2" x 4" and scored and folded at 2" for a side opening Card.

My Card Front Panel is Pool Party Cardstock cut at 1-3/4" x 3-1/4" and adhered to my Card Base with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.


Using SU's Picnic Basket Builder Framelits Dies, I die cut the Grass die from Old Olive Cardstock, trimmed each end off as shown in the picture above and adhered it to my Card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue on the Bottom edge only leaving the Top free of adhesive so I could tuck my Bear behind the Grass.



Using SU's Sweet and Sassy Framelits Dies, I die cut my Heart from Powder Pink Cardstock.

Using SU's Heartfelt Love Notes Stamp Set, I stamped my X's and O's onto my Heart with Basic Black Archival Ink.



Using SU's We Must Celebrate Stamp Set, I stamped my Bear in Memento Black Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.

I colored my Bear with my Stampin' Blends Markers in Light and Dark Crumb Cake and Light and Dark Pink Pirouette.

I fussy cut out my Bear and adhered the Bear to my Card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue as shown in the picture above.

I folded the Bears' Paw's forward, colored them with my Light Crumb Cake Marker and adhered my Heart to the Bear with a Stampin' Dimensional.  I adhered the Bears' Paw's down with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.


Using SU's Flying Home Stamp Set, I stamped the Bee 3 times in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock, colored them with my Stampin' Write Markers in Real Red and Pink Pirouette and fussy cut them out.

I adhered two of the Bee's with Mono Multi Purpose Glue and the Center Bee with a small piece of Stampin' Dimensionals.

I ran out of time today, so I will use my Wink of Stella on the Bees' Wing's and cover the Bee's with the adhesive from SU's Fine Tip Glue Bottle later.


For the inside of my Mini Card:
Using SU's Heartfelt Love Notes Stamp Set, I stamped the To and From Hearts in Real Red Ink on the left side of the inside of my Card.

Using SU's Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies, I die cut out the Large Heart from Powder Pink Cardstock.

Using SU's Heartfelt Love Notes Stamp Set, I stamped the Be Mine Stamp onto the Large Heart and adhered it to the right side of the inside of my Card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Using Heart Happiness Stamp Set, I masked and stamped 4 of the Bunch of Hearts Stamp in Real Red Ink so they are coming out of the top of my Heart.



That Bear just makes me Smile BIG!!!

Flora and Flutter December 2017 Paper Pumpkin Alternate Cards with Bird Banter, Tutti-Fruitti Cards & Envelopes, Card Box Project - VI

It's a pretty calm day outside and mostly cloudy with a high temperature of 32 degrees.  Getting warmer!!!

Today I'm wrapping up four of the Bird Banter Cards that I shared with you on my blog into one of Stampin' Up's Acetate Card Boxes.  Let's take a look:


Gosh...I just LOVE these Birds and could make many more Cards with SU's new Bird Banter Stamp Set.  But; this is my wrap up blog post for the Birds!!!


I inserted four of my Bird Banter Cards and four Tutti-Frutti Envelopes into one of SU's Acetate Card Boxes and made a Belly Band for the Box.


I trimmed out a piece of Basic Black Cardstock that measures 3"x 5" and flagged the ends for my First Banner.

I trimmed out a piece of a Calypso Coral Tutti-Fruitti Card Base to measure 2-7/8" x 4-1/2", flagged the ends for my Second Banner and adhered it to the Basic Black Banner with Mono Multi Purpose Glue on the top of the Banner only.


Using SU's Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, I die cut out a Scalloped Oval from SU's Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper and one from Pool Party Cardstock.  I adhered the two Ovals together with Mono Multi Purpose Glue and to my Banners with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I adhered a Long Stem Leaf, a Short Stem Leaf and a Flower to the Ovals with Mono Multi Purpose Glue as shown in the picture above.  ( You can see my previous blog posts on how I made them. )  I adhered a Black Basic Jewel Rhinestone to the Center of my Flower.

I adhered the Bird to the Stem with Stampin' Dimensionals under the Birds Body and with Mono Multi Purpose Glue under the Birds Feet.


Using SU's Sure Do Love You Stamp Set, I stamped the Just For You in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a scrap piece of Daffodil Delight Cardstock, die cut it out with an Oval die and trimmed the top and bottom off in my Stampin' Trimmer.  I adhered it to the Ovals on my Banners with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.


I made a Ribbon Belly Band for my Acetate Card Box.  I cut 2 lengths of SU's Lemon Lime Twist 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon.  I wrapped one around the top of the Acetate Box and adhered it together in the Front with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.  I wrapped the second length of Ribbon around the top of my Banners and adhered it in the Back with Mono Multi Purpose Glue and Tape.

I adhered the Banners to the Ribbon on the box with Glue Dots.

I cut another length of Ribbon, tied it into a Bow and adhered it to the Ribbon on my Banners with Glue Dots as shown in the picture above. 


I did not put my Bird Banter Sure Do Love You Card into the Box.  This one is going to be my Valentines Day Card for my Hubby!


Here are pictures of my Cards and the back of the Envelopes:





Here are pictures of my Cards and the Front of the Envelopes:







I just LOVE how this project turned out and I hope that you all enjoyed it as much as I did.
