Stampin’ Up! Sealed with Love Bundle….Sneak Peek!

Hey y’all!  It’s Tuesday again!  Only a week and a bit before Thanksgiving!  And then full-tilt into Christmas.  Hard to believe it’s already so close!

Finn’s developed a love-hate relationship with our deer.  He loves to chase them and they hate him.  Or…they act like they hate him.  He’ll give chase if not on the leash, but he gives up pretty quickly.  Scares the you-know-what out of me – I panic and go flying after him in the golf cart and he’s right around a tree.  Laughing at me.

Well, he looks like he’s laughing, anyway.

The deer flip their tails at him, and I think they bound away making it look like they’re going really fast?  But, in truth, they’re in moderate-boing mode.

This morning in our travels, we spent a little time playing with the fire-hose covered bumper.  One of the 2.3 million toys I bought for his entertainment.  He’s got quite a pair of springs for legs!  He was leaping up like 4′ in the air trying to catch the bumper while I swung it for the throw!  Hopefully I can channel that into some Frisbee!


You guys watch for us in the Purina Incredible Dog challenge in a few years!  I’ll be the fat girl trying to keep up with my uber-fast-and-fit incomplete-neck-collar Aussie! 🙂

Now – the card for the day!  You’re going to recognize my color scheme – I used Real Red, Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy again – just like yesterday.  But today’s card is a Valentine’s card.  Or a…I just love you lots card!  And it perfectly showcases the Occasions Catalog bundle called Sealed With Love.  This stamp set, of the same name, and the coordinating Love Notes Framelits are part of the Sending Love Suite of products.

I used some of the pretty Red and White Sending Love DSP Stack to make this card.  Take a look-see:

As you can see, there are a few really cool dies in the Love Notes Framelits.  One that made the fun heart at the center of the card and one that cut the bottom edge off – and made 3-D hearts at the same time!

My design was inspired by the TGIF Challenges sketch – obviously I went portrait!

This one also went along with The Paper Players challenge:

I started the card by using the edgelit die in the Love Notes Framelits set to cut the bottom from a panel of the Sending Love DSP Stack paper. Then I used a combination of SNAIL and Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere the cut panel to my Emerald Envy card stock mat.  I wrapped a length of Real Red 3/4″ Stitched Edge Ribbon around the whole thing and secured it in the back with scotch tape.

My center art panel was inspired by the little 3″ x 3″ note cards we did as make-and-takes at OnStage Local last weekend.

But I changed it up a bit!

I started by cutting out a square with the Stitched Shapes Framelits (I’m a little enamored with them right now – bear with me!  And check out the note about them below – if you haven’t gotten them yet…need to get on that ASAP!) and matting it on a square of Mint Macaron, cut with a Layering Squares Framelits die.  Using the little swoosh/swath image in the Sealed with Love stamp set, I inked up with Mint Macaron, stamped off once on scrap paper, and then stamped it in the middle of my square.

Then I used the heart die from Love Notes to cut a Red Glimmer Paper heart, which I adhered in the middle (right over the swoosh/swath) with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the little sentiment from Sealed with Love in Real Red.  Then I decided I really liked the little arrow – so I cut one from Mint Macaron and carefully threaded it thru the heart – securing both ends to the card with Liquid Glue.

I popped the art square over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and that was it for the card front!

On the inside. I started by stamping the “kiss” from Sealed with Love in Real Red in the center of my Whisper White panel.  Across the bottom, I stamped the little hearts image in Emerald Envy.

I SNAILd the panel to my Emerald Envy mat and into a Mint Macaron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a repeat of the Emerald Envy hearts from Sealed with Love on the front…

…and then on the envelope flap, I stamped a Real Red kiss and another tiny sentiment (it says “sent with love” if you can’t see it!).

Et Voila!  How cute is this card?  I think it could go to a man or a woman very easily, don’t you?  Hope you like.

  1. Sherry

    Love your card and your awesome dog! 🙂

  2. Love what you did with this, Mary. And the lips are perfectly done-especially love the placement on the envelope.

    • LOL – I thought that was inspired of me! And imaginative since I never wear lipstick to have made this kind of a seal for real! Thanks, Jari! 🙂

  3. Mom

    Pretty hard to gather up a group not wantin’ to be gathered.

    Hope fires not your way. Special place in gehenna for those who start such conflagrations. A pox on all their houses…they are barbarous muddy-mettled ratsbanes!!!

    To whom your beautiful valentine would never be sent by me.

    • Thanks, Mom – guess that Shakespearean insult book is working! 🙂 We’re watching the fires pretty closely – and spending most of the time inside. 🙂

  4. That’s awesome Mary! I love the colors, perfect with your design. That stamp set bundle is so cool! Cute picture of the puppy, hope that he has fun chasing those deer around…and that he doesn’t give you a heart attack by doing it! 😉

    • Well, he needs to have one turn and snort at him and that would be the end of the chasing!! 🙂 Thanks, Amy – and yes, this is definitely a great bundle! 🙂

  5. Beth's Fancy Stamping

    Love how you made the heart a focal point with all that pretty paper. By the way, my fearless 11# ShihZu was chased by a momma deer one day.l Saw it with my own eyes! She was barking at the baby deer, mom turned and chased her up the drive way-dog was yipping all the way, my car saved her! She ran under the car and momma turned around and went back to baby. Our deer here are fairly tame. Just don’t mess with their babies!

    • Ours are pretty tame, too – which is bad during hunting season! They’re also, however, used to Buck – who was always on a leash! They forgot about a dog who might chase them! Thanks so much, Beth! 🙂

  6. I love how you went Valentine’s Day with that color Challenge. And a great way to show off the new product!!

  7. Oh I love the dimensional glittery heart and awesome inside!
    So glad you joined us at The Paper Players Mary!

  8. Your card is superbly awesome with fun colors and layers. The added detail inside is such a fun touch. Thanks for playing along with our sketch challenge at TGIF. Smiles, Elizabeth

  9. So sweet! Love that you used these colors to make a Valentine’s Day card! Fun to see the new products too–great job! Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players!

  10. Love these colours on your Valentine card along with the glimmer heart and fancy border – some great sneak peeks here Mary Thanks for joining in my colour challenge over at The Paper Players this week!
