Happy Sunday! Today’s project is bright and cheery love note that incorporates a Sneak Peek of Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog along with a great stamp set and framelits that can be ordered right now. Woo hoo! This card is a fresh and vibrant Valentine based on this week’s Freshly Made Sketches sketch. Here’s my card:
- Coastal Cabana. I’ve become quite addicted to Coastal Cabana, one of the In Colors introduced this year. I love blue, and I love green. When the two come together, I’m starstruck. Don’t jump to conclusions – I’m not cheating on Island Indigo (our relationship is already too close to ever be pulled apart). Like Island Indigo, Coastal Cabana pairs well with almost any color in the Stampin’ Up! family of colors. This Designer Series Paper Stack, Fresh Prints, contains great patterns in Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, Real Red and Whisper White. I chose a page that’s just Coastal Cabana and Whisper White. Drawing on inspiration of the DSP colors, I completed this card with Whisper White and Real Red.
- Love You More. Love you More is a stamp set introduced by Stampin’ Up! on December 1. It’s time to start thinking about Valentines, right? Well, this is an adorable and trendy stamp set that contains perfect images for adult greetings or Valentines for children. Stampin’ Up! has introduced several new Valentine’s Day products, including some adorable. If you would like to check out these items, CLICK HERE.
- Centering on Polka Dot Paper. I didn’t think through the entire construction of this card – I missed one important thing but decided to let it go. When using polka dot paper, it’s impossible for a centered image to look perfectly centered. The polka dots pattern generates staggered circles. The eye wants one of these circles to be the center, but things just don’t line up that way. In my as-of-late rebellious state, I decided to just go with the flow. I had to eyball the paper when lining up my centerpiece and flags and just go with the flow. It’s hard to be this carefree! 🙂
