I Just Love You

Happy February 1! That’s means we are just a hop, skip and jump away from Valentine’s Day! Have you gathered your pink and red supplies together to make little cards or gifts for the loved ones in your life? If not, now’s your chance! πŸ™‚ Today’s project is a fun Valentine’s Day card featuring some “sweet” products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration brochure. Here’s my card:

  • Bundles to Love. This simple card features two of my favorite bundles from Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Occasions Catalog – the Sure Do Love You Bundle and the Petal Palette Bundle. While the small hearts that create the backdrop of this card are stamped with the Heart Happiness stamp set, the large heart is stamped with the Sure Do Love You stamp set and cropped with the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies. Here’s a look at the Sure Do Love You bundle:

    The sentiment is stamped with the Petal Palette stamp set and cropped with the Petals & More Framelits Dies. Here’s a look at the Petal Palette Bundle:

  • Shimmer Ribbon. Are you taking advantage of the amazing products you can earn during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-a-Bration event? You can pick from a variety of stamp sets, dies, kits or accessories when you purchase fun and exciting products you already want. Score! When you’ve picked up everything you want, there are plenty of consumable accessories you can stock up on. One of those is an incredible trio of shimmer ribbons – the Shimmer Ribbon Pack (#147243):

    This pack of ribbon comes with three rolls of gorgeous, shimmery ribbon in three colors and three sizes: 1/4″ wide of Basic Gray, 1/8″ wide of Bermuda Bay and 3/8″ wide of Calypso Coral. Each roll contains approximately 5 yards of ribbon. What a deal! The thin strand of Bermuda Bay Shimmer Ribbon is barely visible on my card, but it’s there – and it’s a great addition to the card – adds a little shine! <3

  • Love this Combo! I love reds with aqua tones – they are a lovely combination any time of year, but they are particularly fun at Valentine’s Day. This combination is perfect for either a man or a woman. Of course a Valentine’s Day card needs red, but there’s enough blue here to balance it out. If you love this combination of Real Red, Bermuda Bay and Whisper White, please save this: Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration: Whisper White, Real Red, Bermuda Bay
