So Hoppy Together ~ Froggy Valentine

I shared a card using the So Hoppy Together Stamp Set last week – he is such a cute little guy – I could not resist using this set again ~ this time as a valentine card, since we are just a few weeks shy of February 14th, come to think of it ~ this may just be perfect for an anniversary, engagement or even a wedding card!

I was able to make this card using one of the free Sale-a-bration stamp sets, So Hoppy Together.    I think we all love to get something for FREE and from January 3rd thru March 31st Stampin’ UP! are offering some really beautiful products that you can get for FREE with each $50 you spend on Stampin’ UP! product….. read on for more information 🙂

Embossing Lovely as A Tree ~ Video Tutorial

I am not really sure what to call this technique and I have seen it used in various places, but is produces such a pretty effect and is really quite easy to do, as I show in the video.

I chose to use the Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set along with the Woodland Embossing folder.  As this stamp set does not have any greetings I used one from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set and created a thank you card, but it would work as a really great card for the fellas in our lives or maybe a Christmas card simply by changing the greeting.

Heat Embossed Lovely Lattice – Sale-a-bration Goodies

This stamp set is true to its word – it is LOVELY ~ so serene and peaceful.  I chose to use heat-embossing to really highlight the delicate details.

The stamp set does not have any greetings so I chose to pair this with another of the Sale-a-bration item, the Part of My Story stamp set, which has 7 different greetings that would cover several occasions.

What excites me though is that I got both of these stamp sets for FREE as part of Stampin’ UP!’s annual promotion where by spending $50 on you get to choose from 11 different items for FREE. Read on for more information…………….

3D Greeting Technique with Video Tutorial

As I explain in my video – I received a card using this technique and just had to give it a try.  It works wonderfully with dies with words so I am sure it would work equally as well with ones for flowers and the like.
