Red Valentine

This is a card that I made similar to one I made a few years ago.  I changed the color and I used the new Embossing Folder and Heart Framelit.  Sorry about the bow, I may need to redo that. Lately, I've been looking at some of my old retired cards and redesigning it to use the current stamp sets, ribbon, accessories and cardstock.
Here is the one from a few years ago which is now retired.

Valentine Crush

I love Stampin' Up!'s cardstock colors Concord Crush and Wisteria Wonder together.  I combined several stamp sets with this card.  First I stamped Delicate Doilies stamp set onto the Wisteria Wonder cardstock using Concord Crush ink.  Then, I used Hello Doily stamp on Whisper White.  I cut it out with my Paper Snips but also trimmed the edges of the doily so that it would fit onto the Wisteria Wonder and attached to a folded  Concord Crush card.  I stamped "Love You" on Wisteria Wonder cardstock and used the Framelit Hearts Collection to cut out the heart.  I cut out another heart but this time using Concord Crush cardstock.  I layered the two hearts together and attached to the center of my card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I'm having fun making lots of valentines with my new Stampin' Up! stamps and accessories.

P.S. I Love You Holder

This is a cute little holder I made using Stampin' Up!'s Bigz Die Scallop Envelope #113462 and the new set P.S. I Love You in the Occasions Mini 2012.  It's made with Elegant Eggplant cardstock and Whisper White. The Designer Series Paper is the Elegant Eggplant from Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack #117154.  The holder is large enough to hold a Slim Pack of Gum, or 3" x 3" gift cards, or even a Ghirardelli Chocolate Square.  Your sweetheart will love this treat holder!

Take It to Heart

This is a card I made for a recent swap using an Occasions Mini stamp set. The stamp set is called Take It to Heart. The colors I used were Soft Suede, Baja Breeze and Whisper White. The new tools I used from the Occasions Mini were the Hearts Collection Framelit Die the Large Sizzlit Paper Doily Die, and the Adorning Accents Embossing Folder and Edgelits Die. I used markers to color in the bird with Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, and Baja Breeze.

Cherry Cobbler Valentine

This is my first card made using the new stamp set Take It to Heart from the Occasions Mini Catalog. The cardstock is Cherry Cobbler, one of very favorite colors and Whisper White. I also used Cherry Cobbler ink. I used the new Large Sizzlet Die called Paper Doily and one of the new Adorning Accents Embossing Folders
