Valentine Card using the Stampin' Up! Bee Mine Suite from Stampin' Up!


  • Getting a start on Valentine cards using Stampin' Up! Bee Mine Suite
  • Lovely Lavender January 2024 Paper Pumpkin Kit coordinates with Perennial Lavender Suite
  • Customer add-on dies work for three upcoming Paper Pumpkin Kits

The new January-April 2024 Mini catalog has a variety of lovely and fun stamp sets and products suites for Valentines.  You'll find just the right phrases and images to help you express your feelings to your Valentines.  Today I'm using the the Bee Mine Suite on page 8-10 of the Mini Catalog.  Additionally, I'm using the new Adoring Hearts Hybrid Embossing Folder and Dies from page 19 of the new Mini catalog.  I can tell you I'll be using these a lot more this month as we are only 6 weeks away from Valentine's Day.  I'm using a color theme of Sweet Sorbet, and Basic White, with a print from the Bee Mine Designer Series Paper of Sweet Sorbet hearts on a Petal Pink background. I used the Adoring Hearts Dies to die cut heart shapes in my Basic White layer so that the Designer Series Paper showed through the openings.  I used another die from Adoring Hearts to die cut small Sweet Sorbet heart shapes to add to the corner of my Basic White Piece.  The sentiment is from the Bee My Valentine Stamp Set, which is also part of this Suite.  This suite includes Sweet Sorbet 1/4" Ribbon, which I included as a bow at the bottom of my card.   Purchasing from the January - April Min Catalog begins Thursday, January 4, as does 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 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.

    The basecard for this card is Sweet Sorbet Cardstock.  Then a layer of one of the Petal Pink and Sweet Sorbet Heart prints from the Bee Mine 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper, matted with a piece of Basic White Cardstock.

    Next, I created three heart-shaped openings in a piece of Basic White cardstock using dies from the Adoring Hearts Hybrid Embossing Folder, with over 14 dies in this bundle.  I used another die from this die set to cut smaller hearts to use as accent from Sweet Sorbet Cardstock.

    Finally, I used Sweet Sorbet 1/4" Bordered Ribbon from the Bee Mine Suite to create a bow for the bottom of my card.  I used a sentiment from the Bee My Valentine Stamp Set and stamped a sentiment using Versamark Ink, covered it with White Embossing Powder and set it with my Heat Tool.  The sentiment label was die cut from Sweet Sorbet Cardstock using one of the dies in the Adoring Hearts Dies.
