Sale-a-bration ~ Courting Hippest Hippo’s

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We have a couple more days of Sale-a-bration ~ a chance to get free stuff when you place a qualifying order ~ for every $50 to $100 you spend you get to select free products from the Sale-A-Bration Summer 2022 Brochure. (see the link to the right) In the brochure, each item indicates if it requires a $50 or $100 purchase. Depending on the amount you spend, you’ll be able to mix and match the Sale-A-Bration items you earn. There are some fantastic options to choose from stamp sets, designer paper, and dies! – click here for more info on Sale-a-bration.

The Hippest Hippo Stamp Set is probably my ‘most, bestest favorite’ choice so my final share from this year’s Sale-a-bration features it and the coordinating Hippo Dies

I thought I might start each month this year by posting the page for that month, so today I share, February which you can see has a Valentine theme.

Simple Z-fold Valentine Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We are just a couple of weeks away from Valentine’s Day – it just seems a few days that we were celebrating Christmas!

Today’s card uses the Touched My Heart Stamp Set which is one of the sets you can get for free for hosting a party or if you place an order for $150 of Stampin UP goodies! I have been surprised on how versatile it has been, it has a beautiful heart stamp with leaves twisting and curling around it just perfect for Valentine or maybe a wedding or anniversary card. I have paired it with the Meant to Be Stamp set for my greeting.

I have a card class every month where I share fun/fancy folds and techniques, mainly cards with the occasional 3D project. I work hard to create projects that I hope will be fun and interesting to the ladies who faithfully join me each month.

From my Heart Valentine Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Just a couple of weeks away from Valentine’s day so today I have the perfect card for that special day – I was playing with some color combinations and really did not know which I preferred so I have included both in today’s post.  It just occurred to me that you could use this for an anniversary card, wouldn’t that be pretty?

I have chosen the Heartfelt Bundle which has the Heartfelt Stamp set and 2… yes ….2 coordinating punches! I played with some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter with Rhinestones Basic Jewels and some of the pretty Scalloped Lace with Pearl Basic Jewels working thru which combination I preferred most.  I have to say though, I ended up liking them both 🙂

Meant to Be ~ Z Fold Bridge Valentine Card

Happy Valentine’s Day

Today’s card is one we made during our January card class and it is a variation of the Z fold card, with a cute little 3D embellishment.   My inspiration came from a the Christmas card my dear friend, Elly, of ElleMentry Papercrafting in the UK, sent me.

I chose to use the Meant to Be Bundle today, it has such pretty, decorative hearts allowing me to randomly decorate my card, as well as the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies giving me lots of choice for using decorative die cuts.

I know that not everyone wants or needs to make a valentine card so I created a birthday version using the same supplies but using the Petal Pallete Stamp set and the coordinating Petals and More Thinlet Dies.
