INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Blushing Bride card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Stamp My Valentine in Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock. 3. Go to your Big Shot:
~Cut out My Valentine with an Oval Stitched Shape Framelit.
~Cut out the Heart from Real Red cardstock. Remove the excess pieces with either the Big Shot Die Brush or a Piercing Tool or a toothpick.
~Cut from Whisper White cardstock: 2 large flowers and three small flowers using the Flower dies in the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits. Save the Whisper White cardstock you cut them from. 4. Back at your table….. Get your Stamp-a-ma-jig Imaging Sheet and T-Handle. Stamp the large flower in one corner and the small flower in another corner.
~Use a marker to color the Whisper White cardstock you cut the flowers from. Color around the cut out flower images. This will make it easier to see your White Flowers.
~Put your Flowers back in their holes. Use your Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the flower stamp with the die cut. Remove the imaging sheet and stamp with Real Red ink. Repeat with the remaining flowers.
~Glue the Flowers onto the Heart over the coordinating size flower part. You could also attach the Flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals if desired. 5. Lay out the Heart and the Oval in the desired positions on your card base.
~Use Tombow Glue to attach the Heart.
~Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the Oval Sentiment.

~Cut at 3″ x 4-3/4″.
~Score at 1/2″, 3/4″, 2-3/4″, 3″ 2. Attach two Glue Dots close to the 1/2″ score line on the lower flap and two Glue Dots towards the top back of the candy. Attach the candy to the lower flap first, then to the back. Fold top flap over and tuch inside the lower flap. 3. Decorate for the occasion. These are for Valentine’s Day. Stamp the Heart in Real Red Ink on Whisper White cardstock. Then stamp one of the other sayings inside the heart. I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to help me position my stamp inside. Cut out with the Heart Framelit. The Heart Framelin in the Mini Treat Bab Thinlits fits perfectly. The Sweet & Sassy Heart Framelit is close to perfect, but not the exact shape.
Happy Candy Giving! You can get all the supplies to make these Matchbook Candy Holders from My Online Store. You will need to get the candy from your local store.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Thick Very Vanilla card base at 5-12″ x 8-1/2″. SCORE and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your patterned paper at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Run through your Big Shot with the Sweethear embossing folder. Use the coordinating Sweet & Sassy Heart Framelit to cut out the center heart. While at your Big Shot, cut out the Celebrate from Elegant Eggplant cardstock. Glue onto the bottom of the DSP. 3. Cut a Window Sheet at 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″. Attach to the back of your DSP Heart cut out with SNAIL around all four sides. 4. Attach Foam Adhesive Strips on the DSP back about 1/8″ from the edge of the Heart cut out. Make sure there are NO gaps in the Foam Adhesive Strip otherwise the Gold Flakes will escape and get everywhere! Also put the Foam Adhesive Strips around the edge of the card.
NOTE: If you do not want the Gold Glitter Flakes to stick to the inside of the Foam Adhesive Strips, either run your fingers along the adhesive sides or run your Embossing Buddy along the sides to remove the sticky there. I personally like the Gold around the Heart edges so I didn’t do this. 5. Lay your DSP on your card base to determine where to put your pile of Gold Glitter Flakes. Remove the DSP. Put your Gold Glitter Flakes on the card base in the center of where the Heart will cover. Remove the Adhesive backing and put on your card base. Press firmly. Now you can “test” out to see if the Shaker Card works. 🙂
Your card is finished. 6. Envelope options: Use the Embossing folder on the envelope flap.
This would be a great Valentine Card for your favorite guy! Most guys (and some gals) love wood and nature. So make this card with the fun Wood paper and this stamp set with a Tree stump. You can replace the retired (oops!) Jute Twine with the 1/4″ Copper Trim or Linen Thread.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Thick Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. SCORE and fold at 4-1/4″.
NOTE: I just did this all on the card base. When you use Blends to color, the color will bleed though your cardstock. SO either color with your card base open OR if you do not want the bleed through to show, cut a Whisper White card front at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. Do everything to the card front, then attach it to the card base. Instructions are for just the card base with no additional card front. My son thought the bleed through was an additional feature of the card. 2. Cut your Wood Textures DSP at 2″ x 6″ with the pattern you want on your card. Attach to your card base with Fast Fuse. Trim excess from top and bottom. 3. Stamp your Tree Stump in Early Espresso ink overlapping your Wood paper. Lay your card base open and flat on a piece of scratch paper. Color the Tree stump around the bottom edges and left side and the bottom of the oval at the top with the Crumb Cake Dark Blends Marker. Color the rest of the Tree Stump with the Crumb Cake Blends Marker blending the darker Crumb Cake. Now color some grass with the Old Olive Blends Markers. I then used the Thin tip of the Crumb Cake Dark Blends to color the tree trunk next to the grass. 4. Stamp Forever at an angle in Real Red ink. Stamp two of the Heart Confetti also in Real Red ink. 5. Place 4 Glue Dots along the border of the Wood paper. Attach your Jute Twine or Linen Thread. Use SNAIL on the back of the Copper Trim to attach it to the card base. Trim excess.
Your Card is Finished. 6. Envelope: You can stamp the round wood stamp on your envelope. Use regular Stampin’ Write Markers to color it if desired.
~You could also emboss the flap with the Pine Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder. Watch this Video to learn how.
I am not normally a Black Valentine person, but these Paper Pumpkin cards turned out pretty cute. I think I will need to make a template for them….. For the Alternate cards I also used Sweet & Sassy Framelits (with my Big Shot), and Flirty Flamingo cardstock. All other items used were included in the Kit.
ORIGINAL CARDS INSIDE LEFT CARD INSIDE RIGHT CARD
ALTERNATE CARDS Left Card: Sweet & Sassy Framelits, Flirty Flaming cardstock, Berry Burst ink sponged around Heart. Vellum die cut is cut in half and attached behind heart with Glue Dots.

INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Pink Pirouette card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Lay your strip of Hearts sticker 3/8″ from the bottom edge of your card base. 3.

Trim off excess from top and sponge top of DSP strip. 4. Attach the Love sticker at the top of the card. Then attach the Heart. This Heart is actually two stickers, so separate them and attach one at a time.

Here is an I Love You card you can use for Valentine’s Day. It is for Sketch Challenge #12 which posted on Saturday on Facebook . I decided to make two versions of this Sketch. I will post the secone card on Wednesday. Hope these cards give you some inspiration for your own cards and projects.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Thick Very Vanilla card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. SCORE and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Attach your Berry Burst Ribbon by running a strip of Fast Fuse 1-3/4″ from the bottom edge.

Punch one end of each strip with the Banner Triple Punch. Sponge around the edge with Berry Burst ink. Decide which will go on the bottom. Decide what the length will be. Attach it with Fast Fuse. Trim off the excess from the top and sponge the edge of the strip. Decide how short the second strip will be. Use Fast Fuse on the top edge and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the sides and tips. Attach, trim top, and sponge top. 4. Now for the Hearts. Choose the size of Heart Framelits you want. Cut the larger one from Berry Burst cardstock and the smaller one from Pink Pirouette cardstock. Sponge around the edges of both hearts with Berry Burst ink. Stamp your words in Berry Burst ink on the Pink Pirouette heart. Attach the Berry Burst Heart with Fast Fuse. Attach the smaller Heart with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Your Card is finished!
We tested out my NEW Stamparatus for both these cards. You can order yours in June.
The Party Pandas looked best with 2-3 layers of ink which was super easy to do with the Stamparatus. I also used the Color Theory Designer Series Paper for the Bamboo stalks and the leaves are from the Everyday Jars Framelits.
The Lovely Wishes card also used the Stamparatus. We placed the two flower and leaf stamps on one side, then stamped, then rotated the card front and stamped again. We also lined up the Happy Wishes stamps in the Stamparatus and stamped it. We again colored with Blends Markers.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cur your Real Red card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Whisper White card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. 3. Stamp your Flower Arch image and Love You Yesterday sentiment in Memento Black ink. Stamp the I Love You in Real Red ink. 4. Although there are two-step stamps for the Arch, flowers and leaves, I chose to color the images with my Blends Markers. Make sure you have at least 1-2 layers of scratch paper under your cardstock when coloring as there will be bleed-through of the Blends inks.
~Crumb Cake Dark along the left sides of the wood. Crumb Cake Light to color in the rest and blend out the lines.
~Old Olive Dark and Light for the leaves.
~Daffodil Delight Dark for the center of the large flower. I had accidently colored the center with the Cherry Cobbler Dark. I used my Color Lifter to remove the color, then colored the center with Daffodil Delight Dark. So I am having you do the Daffodil Delight first.
~Cherry Cobbler Dark for the large flower with the Daffodil Delight center.
~Cherry Cobbler Light for the other three flowers. 5. Attach your colored card front to your card base.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Pink Pirouette card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Pink Pirouette card front at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. 3. Big Shot:
~Run your Pink Pirouette card front through with the Sweetheart embossing folder.
~Cut out five Hearts from the Rich Razzleberry ombre Color Theory DSP. Tyr to get at least the larger hearts so they show lighter and darker color on the same heart. Make sure they will fit on your card front.
~Stamp the Banner in Sweet Sugarplum ink on Whisper White cardstock. Stamp the words in Rich Razzleberry ink. Cut out with the coordinating Banner framelit. (Or you can just cut it out like I did. My Banner Framelits were in hiding at the time.) 4. Assemble your card.
~Lay out the die cut hearts and banner on your embossed card front. Yes, I did mostly cover the heart shape in the center.
~Glue the Hearts directly onto the card front.
~Attach the Banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
~Glue the card front onto your card base.
Your card is finished. 5. If desired, emboss your envelope flap with the Sweetheart embossing folder.
