A Day of Love and Joy

Is there anything more wonderful to wish for a friend or family member than a day of love and joy? It’s something we all need right now – a day where we can just be happy and find peace. That might be a special day (like a wedding), but you really don’t need a special occasion to offer love to a friend. Here’s a quick-and-easy card I made with the Woven Heirloom stamp set and Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper:

Woven Heirlooms, Feels Like Frost, Stampin Up!, Brian King

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Sweet, Framed Sentiment. I don’t usually reach for stamp sets with a vintage feel to them, but there’s something really special about the sentiments in the Woven Heirlooms stamp set. Here’s a look at the great collection of sentiments and vintage images in the Woven Heirlooms Cling stamp set: Woven Heirlooms, Stampin' Up!, 149306I stamped the sentiment with Gray Granite ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock and cropped it with a label die from my favorite set of dies – the Tasteful Labels Dies. I used the die in the bottom, left corner of the dies shown below. It has a beveled edge all the way around the outside of the die, which makes it really special. Here’s a look at these must-have dies:Tasteful Labels Dies, Stampin Up!, 152886
  • Feels Like Frost. I love papers with photographic images – especially when those papers feature Stampin’ Up! colors. Feels Like Frost Specialty 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper was featured in last year’s Holiday Catalog. It was such a beloved favorite that Stampin’ Up! brought it back again this year. Here’s a look at the gorgeous colors and patterns in the Feels Like Frost Specialty 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Papers:Feels Like Frost 6" x 6" Specialty Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog, 150444Before I glued the gorgeous page to the Highland Heather cardstock frame, I texture-embossed the page with my Tasteful Textile 3-D Embossing Folder. It gave the paper a very artistic touch.

  • Color Combination. While there is not a green color noted in the color palette from the Feels Like Frost Specialty 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, there’s definitely a hue of Soft Sea Foam in the page from the papers I used on today’s card. If you like this soft mix of Soft Sea Foam, Highland Heather and Gray Granite as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:Stampin Up!

    overlooked both the Woven Heirlooms stamp set AND the Tasteful Labels Die set. I mean really – what the heck is wrong with me? LOL I’m so glad
    you bring these things to my attention. Also, I just love the color combination in today’s beautiful card.

    Brian, This card is absolutely beautiful! You have outdone yourself.

  16. As always you have a great design with great colors. There are a few of the Feels like Frost papers that I thought needed something. What I wasn’t sure. I Love the idea of embossing them! Also I’ve been debating the Tasteful Lables Dies, this card has convinced me I ‘need’ it. 🙂
    Thanks for the inspiration.
