Valentine’s Day

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Tri-Panel Fun Fold for The Paper Players

I’ve got another fun challenge for you today from the Paper Players – I hope that you’ll come on over and play!  We’re playing with a color challenge, and I didn’t get even a little jiggy with it! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I decided to make one last Valentine’s Day card for this challenge – giving me a great chance to use several pretty designs in the From My Heart Specialty DSP.  And, with that, I also pulled out the Heartfelt stamp set and the wonderful bundled Heart Punch Pack.  All on a fun-fold card.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s colorful Paper Players challenge!  Join the fun and show us your projects! 🙂

This is called a Tri-Panel Fun Fold and I got the inspiration for it from my friend and teammate Karen Ksenzakovic who got it from our other teammate Barbara Ross, who saw a video on it from Tina Rappe!  Whew!  That’s a lot of talent right there.  Hope I did this justice – cuz it’s totally cool!

Also?  It’s totally easy, so…winner winner!

Being that it’s February and stuff, I figured a Valentine’s Day card would fit perfectly with this FUSION challenge.

I started with a “card base” of Basic Black and added a Real Red-matted piece of the From My Heart Specialty DSP.  The card base is flat – but is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (which means this one fits right in a regular A2 envelope!).

I cut the tri-panel part of the card from Flirty Flamingo and scored it at 1 1/2″, 3″, 5 1/2″ and 8″.  Then I folded each score line in opposite directions – starting with a “mountain” at the 1 1/2″ fold.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the last panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the card base.

All but one panel has a Basic Black-matted decoration – either a piece of the From The Heart Specialty DSP or a Whisper White sentiment panel.

On the Whisper White panel, I stamped a sentiment from the Heartfelt set in Real Red.  Over that, I added the small lace-y heart in stamped-off-once Flirty Flamingo.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the solid Happy Valentine’s Day heart in Real Red and cut it with the heart punch in the Heart Punch Pack.  I adhered it at a jaunty angle to the back panel.

For the front of the card, I made a stacked heart sentiment.  First, I stamped the dotted heart image from Heartfelt on a piece of Whisper White.  Inside that, in Real Red, is a sentiment from the set.  I also stamped the larger lace-y heart in Real Red and punched it out with the scalloped heart in the punch pack.

To make the stack, I started with a Flirty Flamingo Heart Doily, to which I adhered a loop of Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon with Glue Dots.  I popped the scalloped heart over that with Stampin’ Dimensionals – then added the sentiment with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the whole thing to the front-most panel of the tri-panel fold with Liquid Glue and that was it for the card.  When you make one of these – be sure that you only use the adhesive on HALF of your decoration!  Otherwise…fun-fold be like…glued shut! 😉

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the large Heartfelt heart in Real Red on the front…

…and one of the From My Heart papers on the envelope flap.

Et voila! Easy Peasy, huh?  I am loving this Tri-Panel Fun Fold and it is so Valentine-perfect with the Heartfelt stamp set and bundled Heart Punch Pack, don’t you think?  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


On chilly mornings, I sometimes will go sit in the tack room after I put the girls out and before cleaning the stalls.  There’s a comfy recliner in the apartment and it’s warm.

So – I sit there all bundled up and read a book for a bit until I can gird my loins and go back into the cold to finish the chores.

Okay – yes.  Sometimes I might accidentally take a little nap. 😉

Finn comes in with me.  Not cuz he’s cold (he LOVES winter!!) – but because he’s velcro!

But – there’s only so much laying-around-while-mom-reads/naps that a guy can take.

So…he sits up and scratches to see if I’ll get the hint.

Is she watching?

Is she even AWAKE??

Mom?  For crying out loud, Mom – let’s GO!!!

He’s nothing if not persistent! 😉

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Heart to Heart Valentine

Well – good day-after-Super-Bowl Sunday (and also – day after Groundhog Day!).  Did you watch the game?  We did.  No dog in this year’s hunt, but…it’s the thing to do, right??  And boy – I’m glad we did!  What a great game!  KC – talk about keeping their heads up and driving thru to the other side.  I was real happy to see them win.  In the immortal words of Sir Alexander Dane: Never give up. Never surrender!

Also – apparently Spring is right around the corner.  Whether your team won or lost – there’s THAT to hang on to!

My card today is another one for Valentine’s Day – this one aimed at a card for a friend (versus a card for a spouse or other romantic interest!).  I used the Heart to Heart stamp set and the Heartfelt Bundle – with it’s cool Heart Punch Pack!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is inspired by the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

And the color palette of grays, red and white comes from this week’s Color Throwdown.

I needed to start with the sentiment strip and the DSP strip so that I’d know where to stamp all my hearts!  A little different order of doing things, huh?

I stamped the sentiment from the Heart to Heart stamp set in Basic Gray on a strip of Whisper White.  Then I snipped a banner end.

I laid the strip on a Whisper White panel and used that as the starting point for the stamped hearts.

With the smaller lacy heart image from the Heartfelt set, I stamped twice in Real Red.  Then I pulled out the small heart images from the Heart to Heart set and stamped them in Real Red, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate.

Then I matted the panel on Real Red to make the card front.

On the side, I added a Real Red-matted strip of Basic Gray paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP, adhering it with Liquid Glue.

Using the scalloped punch from the Heart Punch Pack, I punched out a Real Red foil heart from one of the designs in the From the Heart Specialty DSP pack, and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon around the card front – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I adhered the sentiment with Liquid Glue, and then added Rhinestone Basic Jewels – one on the sentiment strip and several around the stamped hearts.

A good-sized bow from the Real Red 3/8″ Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon, adhered with a Glue Dot, finished off the card front.

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the Heartfelt stamp set in Basic Gray on a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped Heartfelt and Heart to Heart images in Real Red, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more hearts on the front…

…and some more Basic Gray Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  These two stamp sets – Heartfelt and Heart to Heart – really work in concert to let us make Valentine’s Day cards for friend and lover alike, don’t they?  And I LOVE when punches – like the Heart Punch Pack (bundled with Heartfelt) – will cut images from Designer Series Paper like the From the Heart Specialty DSP.  SOOO stinkin’ handy!!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


I’ve mentioned a time or two that Katy gets me up early to be fed.

Most mornings, Finn gets up with me.  Out of solidarity.

Also FOMO! 😉

But – like me, the early mornings tend to make him sleepy (“er” than usual) in the afternoons.

Sometimes I’ll take a short power nap in the recliner.

Finn – out of solidarity – usually does the same!

Frequently on the sofa – where he can keep an eye on me.


Just in case.

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Detailed Hearts for The Paper Players

I’ve got another fun challenge for you today from the Paper Players – I hope that you’ll come on over and play!  It’s a very month-appropriate theme challenge, as you’ll see in a second.

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I decided to go all-out Valentine’s Day for our challenge – with the Heartfelt stamp set and bundled Heart Punch Pack with a little extra help from the Detailed Hearts Die set.  Take a look-see:

 

And here’s this week’s Paper Players challenge!  Join the fun and show us your projects! 🙂

The layout for this one is from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.

And it’s for certain-sure a Valentine’s Day card so…the TGIF Challenge was perfect!

Finally, the Just Us Girls Word Week Challenge helped me add the final element!

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that I embossed in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and matted on Basic Black for the card front.

To create the ombre Detailed Hearts Die cut – I took a piece of Whisper White card stock and adhered 1 1/8″ wide strips of Lovely Lipstick, Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride and Petal Pink cardstock to it with Liquid Glue.  Be sure to get adhesive right up to the edges of the strips!

I laid the Detailed Hearts Die over the panel and ran it thru my die cutting machine.  It takes a few passes – it’s thick!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut to the card front.

Then I used some Liquid Glue to adhere a length of Black 1/2″ Satin Ribbon on a diagonal.

For the sentiment, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment from the Heartfelt stamp set in Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White.  Using the Heart Punch Pack, I cut the sentiment with the straight-edge heart and used the scalloped-edge heart to cut one from Silver Glimmer Paper.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment heart to its Silver Glimmer heart mat and then to the card front.

I tied a small bow from the Black 1/2″ Satin Ribbon and adhered it with a Glue Dot to finish off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Heartfelt sentiment in Flirty Flamingo on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the dotted-heart image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then I made a mask from a sticky note by punching the straight-edged Heart Punch.  I set the mask over the heart and sentiment and stamped the arrow in Melon Mambo.  Then I “fixed” the little gap with my Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and then into my Flirty Flamingo card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Tuxedo Black Memento ink dotted heart and Melon Mambo arrow on the front…

…and a Melon Mambo heart stamp from the Heartfelt set on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Valentine’s Day – straight up!  I love the way the Heartfelt Bundle with the cool dual-punch Heart Punch Pack works with the Detailed Hearts Die, don’t you?

That single die gives so much interest to a card – whether you do it in tone-on-tone (like I did on this card here) or with a rainbow of colors like I did today!  I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


So – Finn gave up his “spot” today for a different kind of post.

On Friday evening, my brother lost his sweet kitty, Bijou.  She was rescued from New Orleans after Katrina as a youngster and he adopted her.

Bijou – “a small dainty usually ornamental piece of delicate workmanship; something delicate, elegant, or highly prized”

No photo description available.

As all our fur-children do, she quickly became a fixture in his heart.

Image may contain: cat and indoor

Considering he had her for most of her life he is pretty devastated at her loss.  And I know his apartment is feeling very empty today.

Image may contain: cat, table and indoor

So – please send good thoughts and prayers his way for peace today and comfort knowing that she’s at the Bridge, playing will all the good kitties who have gone ahead.

Image may contain: possible text that says 'A piece of my heart is at rainbow bridge'

Bijou was about the same age as Katy.

Which means that our time with her is probably drawing to a close.

So I’ll try to remember that at 3:30 in the morning when she wakes me up to eat – even though she’s got food bowls set out.  It’s apparently not the “right” food.  In some cases it’s the SAME food that she WILL eat if I get up and give it to her at 3:30 in the morning.

My little fur-tyrant.

Of course, like all fur-children, just about the time I “can’t take another second” – she…

and….

So.

Now both Bijou and Katy are immortalized on the internet forever!

Thanks for reading my not-Finn-Fan Fix!

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Flowers Are Meant To Be Mine!

Mornin’, my peeps!  Hope your weekend is going well!  Mine started out great – on Friday! – with the arrival of my housekeeper!  She has recovered from her broken knee and been cleared to work by her physician!  I am very happy that she’s better – I mean, broken KNEE! Yikes!  She’s one of the hardest working ladies I know and I know it’s been hard on her being sidelined.  Oh – and I suspect it’s been hurting like crazy!  So – it’s good that she’s recovered as well as she has!

Finny was…beyond ECSTATIC to have her back!  He was gyrating from nose to wiggler for about 30 minutes!

His MOTHER was also beyond ECSTATIC at the prospect of a perfectly clean house – SHE was wiggling from nose to toes on the INSIDE! 😉

My card for today is a quick and easy little number that lets some beautiful All My Love DSP just shine thru!  I added in some sentiments from the Lovely Flowers and Meant To Be sets, plus a few little die cuts.  Take a look-see:

Mornin’, folks!  Hope your week is going well!  We’ve had a heckuva cold front come thru – no snow or precipitation, but…BRRR!!  Guess it’s officially winter-in-the-south.  Sure did enjoy those 3 and a half hours of Fall… 😉

I’ve got a sneak peek of a lovely suite in the 2019 Occasions Catalog.  It’s called the All My Love suite and it’s got two beautiful bundles – the Meant to Be and Be Mine Stitched Framelits bundle – and the Forever Lovely and Lovely Flowers Edgelit dies (all of which will be available on 3 Jan 19!).  My card today uses the first bundle and some of the All My Love DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Heart Happiness Springtime Foils Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a little something fun and romantic planned, if that’s your thing.  If not, and you tend to think of your significant other as your Valentine every day, then…today’s card will be right up your alley!

I used the Heart Happiness stamp set and two new goodies from the second Sale-A-Bration release (coming on Friday, 16 Feb!) – the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP and the wondrous Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF.  And with all these fun tools, I made a clean and simple Valentine’s card for you.  Take a look-see:

I loosely used the sketch at this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge for my layout: Continue reading
