Lovely Thank You Wishes

Today I am featuring the Lovely Wishes stamp set (145924) which can found on page 50 of the 2018 Occasions catalog.  I started with a card base of thick Whisper White cardstock.  I added an embossed layer of Pear Pizzazz using the Layered Leaves Dynamic embossing folder (It has an extra deep impression).  I then used one of the leaf stamps from the set to stamp on some of the raised areas in the coordinating ink color.  That’s one of the things I love most about Stampin’ Up! Everything coordinates--inks, papers, and embellishments!  It’s so easy to make beautifully coordinated projects without worrying about the colors matching.  My main focal panel was stamped on Whisper White cardstock in Momento tuxedo black ink.  I colored the images with my Stampin’ Blends markers.  I didn’t have to as the stamp set has stamps to easily fill in the images if you don’t care to color. I love to color and I've been having so much fun with my Stampin' Blends that I chose not to use those particular stamps on this project. 

The sentiment I used is from the Petal Palette stamp set (145785 clear mount).  Thanks for stopping my blog today.  I hope you've found a little inspiration here.  Please leave me a comment, I'd love to hear from you.  If you'd like to purchase any of the items I've used today, please click on the shopping cart to go directly to my online store.  I'd love to earn your business.  I hope you have a happy and creative day.

Painted with Love narrow notecard set

Today’s project features four note cards I made to go inside the You Warm My Heart note card box I blogged about last week.  All cards start with the Whisper White Narrow note cards & envelopes (145583).  You get 20 cards and envelopes in a package and they are made from the thick Whisper White cardstock. 

This first card features the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (145580).  Each sheet of this paper has gold foiling on one side and a printed pattern without foiling on the reverse.  I used the Sure Do Love You stamp set (145766) and coordinating framelits Lots to Love Box framelits (145653), bundle pricing (145966).  When you purchase the bundle and the narrow note cards, you will have spent enough to qualify for a free Sale-a-Bration item such as Party Pandas (147221). {Offer available through March 31, 2018 only}


The second card utilizes the same Sure Do Love You Stamp set as well as a coordinating stamp set called Heart Happiness.  (145769).  I used the Petal Passion DSP on this card as well.  The gold hearts are from the Painted Love Gold Vinyl stickers (145586).   The gold embossed dots are from a stamp included with Petal Palette (145788).


The next card again uses the Petal Passion DSP and the Petal Palette stamp set (birds).  There is only one bird in the stamp set, but a stamped a mirror image to have the birds looking at each other.  The heart is from Heart Happiness.  I added a stamped image from the same set by inking up three of the small hearts and stamping them inside the main heart image.  A final touch is the retired washi tape from the 2017 holiday catalog. 

The final card uses the same watercolor technique as the heart from the box last week.  This time I inked the stamp with Marina Mist, Island Indigo and Dapper Denim markers and spritzed with water.  I wanted this card to have a very masculine feel to it.  The heart is mounted on a stamped label from Labels to Love punched with the Everyday Label punch.  The gold intricate piece behind is from the Petals and More thinlets dies (145655) which I also used to die cut the birds in the card above.  You an purchase the Petal Palette stamp set and the Petals and More thinlets as a bundle (145974) and save $10.  These items can be found on page 23 of the 2018 Occasions catalog.  You Warm My Heart sentiment comes from Lovely Wishes stamp set (145924).


Thank you for taking time from your busy day to visit my blog.  I hope you found some inspiration and will try your own projects.  Please leave me a comment, I'd love to hear your thoughts.  I hope you have a happy creative day.

You Warm My Heart narrow note card box

My project today is a box created with the Lots to Love Box framelits (145653) and the Sure Do Love You stamp set (145763) which can also be purchased as a bundle (145966) to save 10%.  The box is made from Powder Pink cardstock.  My next step was to stamp my heart as it needs time to dry.  I started with the heart image from Sure Do Love You.  I inked it up with Stampin’ Write markers in Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst and Rich Razzleberry working from lightest to darkest.  I then gently spritzed the stamp with water and quickly stamped it on a piece of watercolor paper.  After it dried, I die cut it with the coordinating framelits Lots to Love Box.  I then added a layer of the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (145589) to the box top.  The sentiment is stamped on Powder Pink cardstock in Rich Razzleberry with a stamp from Lovely Wishes (145924).  The shape was stamped using Labels to Love (144967) and the Everyday Label Punch (144668).  The gold strip behind is actually a sticker from Painted Love Gold vinyl stickers (145586).  You get four sheets of stickers (2 each of 2 designs.). They are gorgeous and add elegance to any project.

This box was designed to hold the new Whisper White narrow note cards and Envelopes which are part of the Painted with Love suite.  The finished size of the box is 4 7/8" x 3 5/8" and will hold four note cards and envelopes (145583).  It can also be used to hold treats or small gifts.
