Welcome to the Pals January 2018 Blog Hop. Our theme this month is “From the Heart” featuring heartfelt projects like Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, Get Well and Sympathy. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

For today’s blog hop, I went with bright colors and gold embossing on a  Valentine’s Day card.  This Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is the star though.  It is even prettier in person.  Because the paper is so beautiful, I went with a fairly simple layout.


Stampin' Up! Sure Do Love You, Jackie Beers, stampinup, sure do love you, jackiebeers

Sure Do Love You, 145766


All of the stamps I used are in the new stamp set “Sure Do Love You”.  The floral heart did not catch my eye at first.  But when I started thinking of the card, I knew it was perfect to surround the sentiment.  And with the gold foil in the DSP I had to emboss the floral heart with gold as well.




I stamped the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry.  The little “always” is stamped in Melon Mambo and die cut using the Lots To Love Box Framelit.  These are matching framelits for the stamp set.  Purchased as a bundle, you save 10% on this fabulous stamp set and extremely versatile set of framelits!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the post.
