Someone Special

You could say I am carrying over yesterday’s Valentine Blog Hop with InKing Royalty.  I have made a sweet and loving card using the new stamp set Special Someone.  It is an accurate name for an adorable set.  It reminds me of the Nature’s Beauty stamp set that was in the Holiday Catalog and carried over.

 

Stampin' Up!, Someone Special, Stitched So Sweetly, Bird Ballad, Jackie Beers

 

This card was made with the First Sketch from Mary Fish’s Stampin’ Pretty Sketchbook.  #sps001.  She shared the sketch on 01/13/2020.  Here is the sketch.

I noticed in the Mini Catalog samples for Special Someone that the Squirrel and the Rat are facing each other.  And even though I really, really, really dislike rats or mice, I do love the set. So they were my little love couple.  The lovebirds are cut out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I love the scalloped edge.  And with the stitching they are very easy to adjust the size, which is what I had to do to shorten the piece for fit the couple.

I used a solid piece of Calypso Coral card stock behind the loverbirds and layered it on top of a great piece of DSP from the Bird Ballads Designer Series Paper.  The Burlap Ribbon and Linen Thread are perfect partners.  I needed something for the dots on the DSP so pulled out the faithful pearls.  I colored them with the Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blend.  If you have not tried this, you really should.  They dry almost immediately and you can then have dots in any color you need.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will come back tomorrow for another new project.

InKing Royalty January Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Valentine’s Day, so prepare yourself for lots of hearts and beautiful showcases of love. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My choice for a Valentine’s Day card is a bit different.  I am not a big fan of Red.  As I was looking for options, I came across the Parisian Suite of products.  I new I had found my substitution.  It is a tad unusual, but I hope you will like it.

 

Stampin' Up!, Forever Blossoms, Parisian Dies, Parisian Blossoms, Jackie Beers

 

I definitely went in a different direction from Red!  I chose Petal Pink, Smoky Slate and Soft Sea Foam.  I hope you will agree with me that the Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper does have a hint of romance in it.  Of course, the “Amour ” pretty much defines the intention.

The flowers and die cuts are from the Forever Blossoms Bundle.  This is a bundle for any occasion.  The sentiment is from the Parisian Dies. It is the finishing touch.

I am hooked on the soft look to the flowers.  I made a similar “soft” card last week.  You can see it HERE.  My go to for beginning the softness of the flowers is to stamp them in Smoky Slate instead of Black.  I then colored only the highlighted areas and left the rest plain white.

I stamped and cut the branch with flowers as well as two extra blossoms.  The “Amour” is die cut from Smoky Slate.  Everything is placed with Multi purpose Glue except for the blossoms. One is added on top of another blossom for definition.  The second is anchoring the sentiment.

I also stamped the large image on the inside of the card and added a sweet sentiment there.

A Friend Like You

The way time flies it seems, I decided I should get with Valentine Cards.  It will be here before we know it.  And I am enjoying the two heart stamp sets in the new Mini Catalog that just debuted.  The matching heart punch pack with scalloped and straight cut hearts are fabulous.  Here is a look at a quick and easy Valentine card.

 

 

The colors in the gorgeous DSP are Flirty Flamingo and Real Red.  I went with the Flirty Flamingo as a backdrop and focal point on the heart.  I also used the new Heart Doilies behind the Flamingo heart.  The doilies are adorable and come in both colors also.  They will fit perfectly in the heart shaped tins in the suite of products.  I will share a project with those soon.

I stamped the sentiment inside the heart and then punched it from the DSP using the scalloped heart punch.  I layered it onto the doily heart and raised them with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  The strip of card stock was just in place of a ribbon as something to ground the heart.  This is a quick and easy trick when you may not have a matching ribbon or just want to use a scrap of DSP or card stock.

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you will stop back tomorrow for another new project.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.

Sending Love

 

I am sharing a mix of products today for a fond farewell to one of the cutest stamp sets.  It is the Birds of a Feather stamp set.  I think these birds are adorable and have used them for several occasions cards as well as some RAK cards during thanksgiving.

 

Stampin' Up!, Birds of a Feather, Stitched So Sweet, Heart punch, From My Heart, Jackie Beers

 

I paired this adorable rooster with a few new products for a sweet little valentine card.  The Designer Series Paper is the new From My Heart DSP.  The punched out heart is from the same DSP pack and is punched using the ruffled Heart from the Hearth Punch Pack.  The Ruffled Heart fits the heart in the paper perfectly, and the plain heart matches a plain heart as well.  I then used a stamp from the Birds of A Feather stamp set to place in the center of the heart.

The rooster is cut out using another new product.  It is the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I LOVE these unusual shapes.  The dies also have several rectangular shapes as well.  I grounded the chicken and heart with the Real Red Ruched Ribbon.  I also added a Real Red Glitter dot from the Toile Tidings Enamel Dots for the “O” in the Love.

I have paired products that are retiring from the Holiday Catalog with products that are debuting in the Mini Catalog 2020 soon.  I love sharing how well all of the SU products pair together.

The retiring products are the Birds of A Feather Stamp set, the Real Red Ruched Ribbon, and the Toil Tiding Enamel Dots.  So if you like these items please click on them in the supply list and get them ordered.  My new supply list allows you to click on an item and it will add it to your cart automatically.  How cool is that???

Thank you for stopping in today.  Please come back tomorrow for another new project.

Happy Valentine Day

I am sharing a sweet Valentine card for you today.  This one is actually for my sweet husband, but since he doesn’t look at these posts, I don’t have to worry about him seeing it. LOL!

 

Meant to Be Bundle, 150587

 

I used my favorite Valentine Bundle.  Although it would work wonderfully for anything that requires hearts.  I love the various dies and the ways they can be used.   I chose the All My Love Designer Series Paper to pair with the gorgeous hearts.  This pattern is my very favorite of the cute paper in that pack.  I love pairing it with the Balmy Blue.  A nice twist for a romantic look.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you will return tomorrow after enjoying this sweet day.  As always, the complete supply list is at the bottom of the post.

Otter Be My Valentine

This is a really cute Valentine card, and I love it.  However , I keep invisioning it as a Baby Card.  I am going to have to work on that idea.  My Valentine version is a Clean card for me.  Not really a lot of stamped area or layers.  Here it is:

 

Stampin' Up!, Hey Love, Beauty Abounds, Jackie Beers

Hey Love, 148644

 

I really love using the little Bocca dots from the Beauty Abounds stamp set.  (I hope that is the correct term!).  And I think the little Otter is just adorable.  I stamped the dots, which look like bubbles to me, in Coastal Cabana Ink.  The Otter is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.

The gorgeous ribbon is the Reversible ribbon of Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green.  I think the shine is just perfect.

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you have a great weekend and will stop back in on Monday for another new project.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the post.
