Stampin' Up Sneak Peek 2017 Occasions Catalog Yummy in My Tummy, Sending Love, Sealed with Love, Succulent, Layering Circles, Stitched Shapes, Sweet & Sassy Hearts, - Cards, Envelopes, Card Box - I

Our day is starting out just gorgeous outside.  The sun is shining and it's going to be about 40 degrees.  Although, rain showers are going to move in tonight.  It's funny to see rain in January in Michigan.

My share for this week is 6 cards, Envelopes and another Card Box using Stampin' Up's new product from the 2017 Occasions Catalog; Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack, Yummy in My Tummy and Sealed with Love Stamp Sets and Love Notes & Succulent Framelits Dies and  Layering Circles, Stitched Shapes and Sweet & Sassy Hearts Framelits Dies from the Annual Catalog.

Let's take a look at my first 2 cards:

My Card Bases are Whisper White Cardstock cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored and folded at 4-1/4".

Using SU's new Love Notes Framelits Dies, I die cut the long Hearts Die in the front right side of my Card Base.

I trimmed out my Card Front Panels from SU's new Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack to measure 3" x 4" and adhered it to my Card Base using Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

Using SU's new Succulent Framelits Dies, I die cut 2 of the skinny Banners from Whisper White Cardstock.  I adhered the ends of the 2 Banners together and to the bottom of my Card Front Panel with Mono Multi Purpose Glue for some grounding for the Happy Monster.

Using SU's new Yummy in My Tummy Stamp Set, I stamped the Happy Monster in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Shimmery White Cardstock and fussy cut him out.

Using Stampin' Write Markers in Basic Black and Blushing Bride, I colored in the Happy Monsters Horns, Teeth and Paws.

I stamped my Sentiments in Basic Black Archival Inks onto Whisper White Cardstock, die cut them out with SU's Layering Circles and Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and adhered them to the Happy Monsters Tummy with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I trimmed out 2 tiny strips of Real Red Cardstock for the Handles for the Valentines that the Happy Monster is holding.  I also fussy cut the Valentines from a piece of SU's new Sending Love DSP Stack.  I adhered the Handles to the back of the Valentines and then to the Happy Monsters Paws with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I adhered the Happy Monster to my Card Front Panel with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I used SU's new Sending Love 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon in Real Red for my Bow and Card.  Using my 1/16" Handheld Hole Punch, I punched 3 Holes in the upper left fold of the Card Base to slide my ribbon through the Hole, around the back and up through the Hole in the top upper right die cut Heart.  I adhered the 2 ends of the Ribbon together in the center of the front of my card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.  I tied a Bow and adhered it to the center of the Ribbon also using Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

For the right inside of my Card, I trimmed out a piece of SU's Blushing Bride Cardstock to measure 1" x 5-1/2" and adhered it with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.  I did this so I had a different color (other than white on white) showing through the die cut Hearts when looking at the front of the card.

For the left inside of my Card, I fussy cut some more Valentines from the Sending Love DSP Stack and adhered them to the Ribbon with SU's Mini Glue Dots.

Using SU's new Sealed with Love Stamp Set, I stamped the Painters Stroke Stamp onto Real Red Cardstock by stamping off once onto another piece of Cardstock (for a future project) and then onto the Cardstock for a lighter touch.  I stamped my Sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink over the top of the stamped Painters Stroke.

Using SU's Sweet & Sassy Hearts Framelits Dies, I die cut out the Sentiment and adhered it to the inside of my card with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I adhered 2 Real Red Heart Enamel Shapes on the Sentiment in the card on the left and one Real Red Circle Enamel Shape on the Sentiment in the card on the right.

I am so happy with the way my cards turned out.  I LOVE making Valentines Cards and Projects.  And, I'm in LOVE with the new products in SU's new 2017 Occasions Catalog.

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges, using them for their own card classes and (using them on their blogs as their own creations) - Please give credit where credit is due.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
