Handmade Anniversary card using new 2021 Always in My Heart Bundle

Hello stampers. Sneaking in another card for you before the weekend. This one is an Anniversary card and I think it could be used for a couple, husband or boyfriend with this colour combination. It uses the brand new 2021 Always in My Heart bundle. I just love that floral heart die!

Always in My Heart

My colours are Smoky Slate, Real Red, Basic Black and Basic White. I have used that lovely Subles 3D embossing folder on the layer underneath the floral heart die.

I love the banner piece in this die set as well. In the stamp set, there is a velentines sentiment stamp that fits perfectly in the banner too. There are other great sentiments suitable for wedding and engagement cards too, which maks this a really versatile bundle.

Lots of Heart Valentines Card

Hey crafters.  Today I have a handmade Valentines day card using the new 2021 Stampin' Up! Lots of Heart stamp set. It would also be suitable for a wedding, anniversary or engagement card.

Stampin Up handmade card using new 2021 Lots of Heart stamp set. Has 3 overlapping punched coloured hearts and a watercolour background. By Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I was inspired with this summery colour combination that was used in the Sweet Little Valentines cards and more in the 2021 January to June Mini Catalogue. I have used Pool Party as the watercolour wash, and then Melon Mambo, Petal Pink and Calypso Coral for the hearts. I love the variety of patterns that the hearts can be stamped in.

Heart Colour
I have used our new Opal Rounds embellishments from the 2021 January to June Mini Catalogue to embellish my card, and a white heat embossed sentiment on basic black cardstock. I didn't have the coordinating dies for this stamp set, so I used the smooth edged heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack. I managed to make it fit pretty well, with just needing to cut a teeny bit out with paper snips at the top centre of the heart.

The Lots of Heart stamp set has 5 great sentiments suitable for a range of occasions. It is also available to purchase in a bundle with coordinating dies.

10 Minute Valentines Card for Husband or Boyfriend

Hello friends, it's getting to that time of year when a lot of my card making friends and customers are looking for card making ideas for Valentines cards. Today I have a quick 10 minute Valentines card for you, that is designed for a husband or boyfriend.

2021 Valentines Card using Always in My Heart bundle Stampin Up

 

I'm so in love with this sentiment stamp (famously quoted in the movie Jerry Maguire), which is from the Always in My Heart stamp set. I have used the bundle in this project (includes the coordinating Floral Heart Dies).

Always in My Heart Bundle Stampin Up

2021 Valentines Card using Always in My Heart bundle Stampin Up

I love how the Bricks and Mortar 3D Embossing folder gives this card base a bit of a subway art or industrial feel. Then all I needed to do to complete my card was:

  1. Stamp the sentiment heart in Real Red ink and cut out with the inside of the floral heart die in the bundle;
  2. Die cut a heart with the same die from Smoky Slate cardstock;
  3. Die cut a small real heart (die cut from the small strip of hearts in the Floral Heart dies);
  4. Some black and white bakers twine from the Playful Pets Twine Combo Pack.
  5. When assembling the pieces, the sentiment heart is adhered with Dimensionals to lift that up a bit.

Wedding Card for SB113 using Happy Happenings from Stampin' Up!

Hello.

Something a little different today - a wedding card. This week's Stamping and Blogging Sketch 113 and the new Stampin' Up! sentiment stamp set I received last week called Happy Happenings, were the base for my card.

Stampin' Up! handmade wedding card using Happy Happenings for SB113 by Claire Daly Australia

Lots of bits and pieces on this one and you will be able to view all of these products in the links below. Happy Happenings is going to be a favourite sentiment set for sure. I love the funky font and that it coordinates with one of my favourite punches, the Label Bracket punch (used for the sentiment on this card).

Stampin' Up! handmade wedding card using Happy Happenings for SB113 by Claire Daly Australia

I think a wedding card needs a bit of bling, so I have added some gold printed vellum, gold glimmer paper, gold foil punched hearts and some gold metallic thread. The little wooden heart embellishment I have used is from the Watercolor Wishes card kit.

Here is the sketch Sandi gave us to play with this week:
