Cards- Valentine's Day

Punch Party Valentine

For the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #650 we are using the colors Flirty Flamingo, Real Red, and Bermuda Bay.

CCMC650

These colors made me think of Valentine's Day.  It's this Sunday, you know!

CCMC #650 Punch Party by Jo Anne Hewins

The base of this card is Bermuda Bay measuring 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.  Use the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder on the front of the card.

The designer paper is from the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  The Bermuda Bay dots is 1 1/4 x 4 1/4.  Cut one of the labels, 2nd largest, from the words paper using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  Add that label in the center of the card with dimensionals.

Stamp the saying on Basic White in Real Red.  The saying is from the Punch Party stamp set.  This set is available free as a Host Reward for an order of $300 during Sale-a-Bration.  Punch this out with the heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack.  Punch a scallop heart from Real Red card stock.  Layer the two and glue to the center of the label.

Tie a bow with the red ribbon from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack and attach with a rolled up glue dot on the heart.

Use the Small Bloom Punch to punch 4 Real Red flowers, Regals 6 x 6, and 5 Flirty Flamingo flowers, Brights 6 x 6.  some of these will be used on the inside of the card.  Use a regular hole punch for the flower centers.  All are from the Bermuda Bay papers from Brights.  Add the centers to the flowers.  Put the flower on a foam mat and press down in the center.  I used the wrong end of one of our retired paper piercers.  This gives the flower a little dimension.  Add to the card.

Embellish with some Basic Red Rhinestones.

CCMC #650 Punch Party Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside of the card, the saying is from the stamp set Meant To Be.  You can see from the picture just what you need to do.  Follow the lead from the front of the card.

A Valentine Using the Heart Punch Pack

Valentine's Day is this Sunday!  Are you ready?  I have a card for you today that might give you a little spark.  It uses some of our favorites from the Annual catalog with a little of the Punch Party stamp set thrown in.  The Punch Party stamp set can be earned for free with an order of $300 or more during Sale-a-Bration.  Here is the card.

Valentine Heart Punch Pack by Jo Anne Hewins

This is one of those cards that uses a lot of different products.  I love picking from here and there.  It's so easy because Stampin' Up! coordinates so well.

The base is Real Red 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The patterned paper is from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It has that bit of gold to make the card special.  Cut it to 4 x 5 1/4.

For the band across cut a piece of Gold Foil to 4 x 1 1/4.  Run it through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder.  When you attach this piece across the middle, make sure that the writing goes the right way.

Cut the 2nd largest Stitched Nested Label from Basic White.  Run it through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.  I think it's important to center the label on the folder so that the design looks centered.  It makes a difference in the long run.  Add to the center of the card with dimensionals.

Valentine Heart Punch Pack Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Stamp the saying in Real Red ink using the Punch Party stamp set on Basic White.  Punch with the plain heart from the Heart Punch Pack.  Punch a Real Red heart with the scallop punch.  Adhere the two and then glue to the center of the label. 

Add a bow knot using the Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon with a glue dot.

Embellish with the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.

There you go!

Valentine Heart Punch Pack Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside, stamp the saying in Real Red.  This saying comes from the Happy Thoughts stamp set.  It is found in the Jan-June Mini.

The hearts are cut out using the Stitched Be Mine dies from the Annual.  I used the die that cuts out a bunch of little hearts at one time.  Of course you could use the heart frame cut out that it makes too.

Facebook Live 1.20.21 Kangaroo & Company Cards

I love the Kangaroo & Company bundle from the Jan-June Mini Catalog.  I focused on this bundle for my Facebook Live this past Wednesday.  Here are the cards we made.

Kangaroo & Company Card Group by Jo Anne Hewins

I love that there are choices of hearts, flowers, a baby joey, or presents that can go in the kangaroo pouch.  You can even put them on a tab to pull out and replace with another.  It reminds me of paper dolls.

Kangaroo & Company Valentine Note Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The first easy card was made using one of the Basic White Note Cards & Envelopes.  I simply stamped the envelope stamp randomly over the card front in Memento Black.  Color in the hearts with Stampin' Write Markers.  I used the Real Red from the Regals and the Blushing Bride from the Subtles.   I used the markers because they do not bleed through to the other side like Blends do.  I did not want to see it from the inside.

Wind some of the Blushing Bride twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo around the card and tape where it will be covered by the heart.  Make a bow to add later with a rolled glue dot.

Stamp the saying from the Punch Party stamp set in Real Red on Blushing Bride card stock.  Punch with the heart from the Heart Punch Pack.  Punch the scallop heart from Real Red card stock.  Adhere the two and add to the card center with dimensionals.  

Add the bow.

Kangaroo & Company Valentine by Jo Anne Hewins

This card uses the patterned paper from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper.  

The base is Real Red 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and fold at 4 1/4.  The Blushing Bride layer is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  I trimmed just a tiny bit from the side.  The 3 patterned of  Snail Mail paper are 1 5/8 x 3 3/4.  I started gluing with the hearts paper and then added each one butting them up against each other.  Add this layer to the card front.

The heart is from Blushing Bride card stock and is cut from the Stitched Be Mine dies.  Use the scalloped large die and the heart both to cut this out.  The heart alone only makes the stitching.  The scallop piece can be added if you wish.  Use the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder to add some texture to the heart.  Glue to the center of the card.

Stamp the large kangaroo and the joey in Memento.  Color with the Crumb Cake combo, the Ivory blend, and the Dark Petal Pink blend.  Cut out with the Kangaroo dies.  Add with dimensionals.   Stamp the hearts with Memento and color with the Real Red Combo blends.  cut out with the dies and add with dimensionals.

The saying is from the meant to Be stamp set.  Cut out with the rectangle in the Kangaroo dies.  Add with dimensionals.

Cut small hearts using the Stitched Be Mine dies and add them to the card front.

Kangaroo & Company Family by Jo Anne Hewins

This card starts with a basic size base of Rococo Rose.  The Blushing Bride layer is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  The designer paper from the Paper Blooms Sale-a-Bration Designer Series Paper is 3 3/4 x 5.

Before adhering the layers, cut the largest oval from the Layering Ovals dies from the Blushing Bride layer.  Use the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder with the oval.  Add the oval to the center of the card.  

Run a length of the Blushing Bride twine around the card and tie in a bow.

Stamp the big kangaroo, the child kangaroo, and the baby.  Color with the Smoky Slate combo blends and the Dark Petal Pink blend.  Cut with the dies.  For this card the baby is added to the top of the tab.  Watch how you add the big kangaroo to the card so that you can add the baby and also take it out.  Add the child.

The saying is from the Kangaroo & Company bundle.  Add with dimensionals.  Use the Rococo Rose pad.

For this card we also stamped the hearts, the presents, and the flowers so that they can be interactive on the card.

I think my granddaughter Sagan will be playing with this card.
