Sealed with Love Valentine Card




Some months ago I found a very cute card on Sarah'sInkSpot.com where she used the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and Beautiful Branches Thinlits. I CASEd the card and have had it up on my shelf since then. I love it! It's so pretty. Today I re-vamped the copy and made it my own be eliminating an Early Espresso border between the Whisper White and Pink Pirouette. Also, I used Sealed with Love or my sentiment instead of a sentiment from Thoughtful Branches.

I hope you enjoyed my card today. Won't you take a minute and leave me a comment? Thank you!

From the Heart -- January Pals Blog Hop



Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for January 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  

This month our projects showcase themes that are “from the heart.” This includes any of the following themes… Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, Get Well and/or Sympathy. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.


My cards are a "family" of sympathy cards. You see, a patriarch I know passed away last week and I know his widow and his three grown children, therefore I wanted to give four separate cards to show my love and send comfort.


After making the first card using a 4" x 5-1/4" print from Falling in Love Designer Series paper, I decided to use the rest of the 4" strip I cut for two more cards. 


My 4th card is just the Crumb Cake card stock base with the same rows of Gold Embossed Delicate Details images. I used all of the images from the stamp set and just placed them on my clear block, making sure they were straight. I used my Stampin' Grid paper to see through the block while placing the images.


You see here my "family" of cards (minus the one without designer series paper).

I hope you enjoyed looking. Please leave me a comment so I know you were here!

Something For Baby and Blog Hop Reminder


I was inspired by a card that Karen Gilbert made and posted in Splitcoast Gallery. Her card was larger than mine, had more elements on it and was actually a Thank You card. I wanted a card for a baby shower gift. This card matches a rag quilt I made for the new baby boy.


I hope you enjoyed looking! Please leave a comment for me to read. Any time you need Stampin' Up! supplies, just use my Online Store.

Colors: Tip Top Taupe, So Saffron, Mint Macaron, Whisper White

Thank You So Very Much Sale-A-Bration 2017


Today's card was inspired by a very similar card in the Stampin' Success Magazine, which all Demonstrators receive.  There are always inspirational cards, workshop ideas and hobby or business tips in each issue. The articles and featured projects are from corporate or fellow demonstrators. There is always something to learn when the issue arrives. When you purchase your starter kit, you will begin receiving your Stampin' Success!


This card was stamped using the So Very Much stamp set y0u earn FREE during Sale-A-Bration for ordering $50 in products. When you have such a large sentiment, you don't have to add a lot of other elements to your card and you can make several at a time. By stamping the sentiment twice (in Emerald Envy and Pool Party), I created this shadow effect. My other ink color "for the gift" is done in Night of Navy. The strip of paper is from Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper. I tied a bow using White Baker's Twine.
