This month’s Paper Pro challenge is Love. I used the new Karen Burniston Spinner Square Pop Up die to make a Valentine card. The front uses the Painted Love DSP and Gold foil papers along with Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry and Tangerine Tango card stocks. The little heart is Powder Pink, painted with a shimmer pen and cover with Glossy Accents. The row of gold hearts are die cut with Karen Burniston’s Cake Trim die. It’s all finished off with a Powder Pink ribbon.
The dies on the Spinner Square can cut an opening on the front. As you open the card, the message pops out!
Since I turned mine vertically, the message pops out from the bottom. The sentiment is from Sure do Love You. Hugs, Fran
This card is made with Hero Arts Window on Love Confetti background die that I paper pieced using Real Red, Powder Pink and Flirty Flamingo. The gold sentiment, border and hearts are the new Painted Love Gold vinyl stickers from Stampin Up! I simply pressed them over the background die.
And I added some Glossy Accents on the Love and the hearts (couldn’t resist!) Such fun! Hugs, Fran
Here’s a quick Valentine for you to make using Vertical Greeting. Simply use you markers to color directly to the heart topiary and stamp on whisper white card stock. The card base is a notecard that is 3 1/2 x 5. I added some little hearts to the top and around the front and stamped the greeting in Real Red. Tie it off with some red Baker’s Twine and you have a sweet card! Hugs, Fran
Hedgehog love! This card uses Hedgehugs in the Occasions catalog. I used an old heart stencil and the new embossing paste on the card base. The tops of the mushroom were stamped in gray and then again in Real Red and fussy cut. The hedgehogs were stamped in Soft Suede and then the color was pulled from the image with a blender pen and fussy cut. I added a heart with the sentiment and some extra hearts to finish it off. Hugs, Fran
Graceful Garden has this beautiful sentiment – I Adore You – that is perfect for Valentines Day or any card that expresses love. I paired is up with Berry Burst and Rich Razzleberry to make a Valentines card. The sets I used are Sure Do Love You and Heart Happiness with dies from Sweet & Sassy hearts and the Lots to Love Framelits. Cut and inch from one side of your card base and stack your hearts along the edge. I also added some cute Metallic Enamel Shape hearts.
Enjoy all the hearts! Hugs, Fran
We are going to need Valentines very soon! This one is made with the Sure Do Love You stamp set and the Lots of Love Box Framelits that match. The Designer Series paper is Painted with Love and the bottom scallop is from the Colorful Seasons dies. All of the hearts are popped up with 3 card stock hearts underneath them. The first heart has a Calypso Coral bow tied with the Calypso Coral Shimmer Ribbon that is free during Saleabration. The entire thing is finished off with a skinny strip of Gold Foil. Hugs, Fran
Are you thinking “Valentines” yet? The Sure Do Love You set in the Occasions catalog is perfect for making some quick, but pretty, Valentines. I paired the set with the Painted with Love Specialty paper to make this card. The base is Melon Mambo ( 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 for a top fold card.) The front is Powder Pink and the Painted with Love paper. The little layered squared is Powder Pink and Calypso Coral, die with the Layering Squares framelits. The ribbon is from Saleabration! It’s free with a $50 purchase 🙂 I finished off the card with Metallic Enamel Shapes and Gold Glitter Flakes (from the Occasions catalog.) Hugs, Fran
This 3 x 3 shaker note is perfect to tuck in a package for your Valentine. I started with a 3 x 6 piece of Real Red, scored at 3″ to make a little note card. I already had the negative of a square, cut from another project so I trimmed it down to 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 and put a piece of acetate on the back. Using the foam strips, I made a box on the back and filled it with little shaker bits and some heart from the Confetti Hearts punch. After adhering a piece of white card stock to seal it up, I die cut a Red Glimmer Love to the front and a white embossed You from Crazy About You. Hugs, Fran
Valentine’s Day is almost here and I have a gift card holder to share with you. (Because what says “I love you” more than a Venti White Mocha?) This starts with a 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of Real Red scored at 4 1/2, 5 1/2 and 6 1/2. Put some strong adhesive right on the inside of the score lines and die cut, punch or simply cut the top of the sealed area. This makes a space for your gift card. Decorate the inside and out of your holder and wrap with a belly band.
My belly band is 1″ wide and is decorated with Sending Love Designer Series paper. The heart is punched from Red Glimmer paper and the Love is die cut from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.
I made some 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 envelopes using the envelope punch board to hold these and they fit perfectly! Hugs, Fran
I made a little pouch to hold a gift card and decorated it like a Scrabble board. You could use this idea on a card, box – just about anything that you can draw squares on. My squares are 3/4 x 3/4 – not an exact fit, but it worked. I glued the tiles to the card stock. The little hearts are from the Confetti Hearts punch and covered in Crystal Effects.
The flap closes with tiny magnets. Hugs, Fran
