Stampin' Up Adoring Arrows January 2017 Paper Pumpkin - Sending Love, Sealed with Love, Little Cuties, Love Notes, Stitched Framelits, Sweet & Sassy Hearts

We got about 2" of snow last night and this morning and it's still snowing.  We are supposed to get 1 to 3" of snow; but, it looks like we might get more.  I hope the roads are good as I have to go into town today.  =(

My share for today is a Valentines Day Card that I designed using Stampin' Up's Adorning Arrows Stamp Set from the January 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Sending Love Designer Series Paper, Sealed with Love and Little Cuties Stamp Sets and Love Notes, Stitched and Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies.

My Good Friend and Fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie, sent out a challenge packet with a piece of Sending Love DSP, a die cut Real Red Envelope from Love Notes Framelits Dies, a Whisper White Stitched Circle and a Wood Heart from Sending Love Embellishments and we are to come up with a card from all the pieces.

Let's take a look at what I came up with:

Of course, I'm partial to Kitten's and this one is a Little Cutie!  Literally, as it is from Stampin' Up's Little Cuties Stamp Set.  I couldn't resist tucking the sweet little Kitten inside the little Love Notes Envelope.

My Card Base is Whisper White cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored and folded at 5-1/2".

For my Card Front Panel, I trimmed the piece of Sending Love Designer Series Paper to 2-7/8" x 5-1/8" and adhered it to my Card Base with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Using SU's Adoring Arrows Paper Pumpkin Stamp Set, I stamped my Sentiment in Real Red Ink and the Hearts in Blushing Bride Ink onto the Stitched Circle and adhered it to the Card Front Panel with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Using SU's Little Cuties Stamp Set, I stamped the Little Cutie Kitten in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock.

I colored the inside of the Kittens' Ear's with my Blushing Bride Stampin' Write Marker, went around the inside edges of the Kitten with my 00 Gray Copic Marker for some highlighting and went around the outside edges with my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.

I adhered the Kitten inside the Real Red Envelope and to my Card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I adhered the Wood Heart from Sending Love Embellishments in-between the stamped Heart and the Kitten with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

For the inside of my Card:
Using SU's Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies, I die cut one Heart from Real Red Cardstock and one from Blushing Bride Cardstock.

Using SU's Sealed with Love Stamp Set, I stamped my Sentiment onto the Blushing Bride Heart with Real Red Ink.

Using Adoring Arrows Stamp Set, I randomly stamped the Hearts in Blushing Bride Ink.

I adhered the two Hearts together and to the inside of my Card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

And, using SU's Thick Whisper White Baker's Twine, I tied a small Bow and adhered it to the Real Red Envelope with a dab of Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!
