Valentine cards using Stampin' Up! Adoring Hearts and Bee Mine Designer Series Paper


  • Valentine cards using Stampin' Up! Adoring Hearts
  • Sale-A-Bration includes Two Joining Bonuses until 29 February 
  • Lovely Lavender January 2024 Paper Pumpkin Kit coordinates with Perennial Lavender Suite

Today I'm combining images and die cuts from multiple Stampin' Up! product to create more Valentine cards.  That's one of the benefits for Stampin' Up! products -- products that work across the product line.     I'm using images from Adoring Hearts Stamp Set, Sentiments from Charming Sentiments and Adoring Hearts and die cuts from Adoring Hearts Dies, Darling Details Dies, and from Sentiment Silhouettes Dies.  Additionally, I'm using two prints from the Bee Mine 12" X 12": Designer Series Paper.  While Stampin' Up! creative artists put together tightly coordinated product suites that makes it easy to create cards and paper crafting project, if you like to stretch your creativity, Stampin' Up! products also work well across the product line.  I made two slightly different versions of today's Valentine cards. Both use the dies from the Adoring Hearts Dies and the floral heart from the Adoring Hearts Stamp Set.  Both cards use one of the floral print from the Bee Mine Designer Series Paper.    Both also use a Daffodil Delight checked print from the Bee Mine 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper as a background.  Both use the Border Die from the Darling Details Dies.  Both include a bow using the Sweet Sorbet 1/4" Bordering Ribbon.  Both use a sentiment "Just For You", however, one sentiment is from Adoring Hearts Stamp Set, and the other is from the Charming Sentiments Stamp Set.  One card is plain Tuxedo Black Memento ink floral hearts.  The other card goes one step further after stamping the hearts, where the florals are colored with Lemon Lime Twist and Daffodil Delight Blends, and the hearts are offset on that card.  Subtle changes, but a fun difference.   You'll enjoy creating your Valentine cards using a product suite from the January-April 2024 Mini Catalog, or in combining new products with products you already have to create your Valentine cards for the upcoming celebration.   Purchasing from the January - April Min Catalog is now underway, as well as the earning period for Sale-A-Bration.  From January 4-February 29, for each $50 or $100 you spend, you can select Free items from the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  As always, Sale-A-Bration selections are available until out of stock, so my Shopping tip is to order from the new Mini catalog and Annual Catalog early so your Free Sale-A-Bration selections are available when you order.

Valentine cards using Stampin' Up! Adoring Hearts and Bee Mine Designer Series Paper

    The basecard for these cards is Thick Basic White Cardstock.  Then a layer of one of the prints from the Bee Mine 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper is used to complete cover the front of the card.  Next, I cut a piece of Basic White to use as my image area.  The image area is bordered with a Sweet Sorbet die cut using one of the dies from the Darling Details Dies.

    Next, on both cards, I used the floral heart stamp from Adoring Hearts Stamp Set and stamped 3 floral hearts using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  On one card I left the stamped floral hearts plain.  One the other card, I used Daffodil Delight and Lemon Lime Twist Blends Markers to color the images.   I then selected plain heart dies from the Adoring Hearts Dies, and used them to die cut three heart shapes using one of the prints Sweet Sorbet and small flower prints from the Bee Sweet 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper.  I popped the hearts up on Dimensionals.  On cone card, I centered the hearts in the middle of the stamped floral heart image.  One the other card, I twisted the hearts a bit before adding them to the center of the stamped floral hearts.

    Finally, I added Sweet Sorbet 1/4" Bordered Ribbon from the Bee Mine Suite to create a bow for each card.  I used sentiments from two different Stamp Set to add to my card.  One card uses a Just for You sentiment from the Bee My Valentine Stamp Set and the other card uses a Jus For You sentiment from the Charming Sentiments Stamp Set.  I used a sentiment label from the Adoring Hearts Dies for one sentiment, and I used Dies from the Sentiment Silhouettes Dies to die cut the other.  Both sentiments are stamped in Versamark onto Sweet Sorbet Cardstock, covered with White Embossing Powder, and set using my Heat Tool.  Both sentiments are popped up on dimensionals before adding them to the cards.
