It’s getting cold outside, so this white, cable knit pattern from Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack really called my name as I sat down to make a sweet Valentine’s Day card. This pairing of Basic Gray, Rose Red and Whisper White create the perfect combination of colors to create a warm and sweet project. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Layout Inspiration. When I was designing this card, I used the tip I shared with you in yesterday’s video (see it here) to create this layout. I used neutral pieces, punches and crops of paper leftover from other projects to create a layout with this Snuggles and Smooches sentiment. I use neutral pieces so that my sketch doesn’t define the colors I select. Once all the pieces were in place, I knew I needed to balance them a bit with a sprinkling of Rose Red candy dots.
- Photopolymer Stamp Sets Not in the Catalogs. Each month, Stampin’ Up! releases new photopolymer stamp sets that aren’t featured in the printed catalogs. If you blink, you might miss them. Snuggles and Smooches was introduced late last year – and this one is PERFECT for Valentine’s Day, so you might want to check it out. Want a visual of all photopolymers available by Stampin’ Up!?

- Color Combination. I love how Stampin’ Up!’s color cycle. Rose Red has likely sat on your shelf for some time, not really getting the attention it deserves. Well, it’s all over the projects in the Occasions Catalog this year – to remind you how much you love the sophisticated, yet flirty, color. It’s all grown up when paired with white and gray. If you like this combination, too, please feel free to save this:
