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).

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:

Wedding Card using Stampin' Up! Love Story Project Life for Stamping and Blogging

Today's share shows a different way to use some of the Project Life cards from Stampin' Up!. I have created a wedding card using the beautiful Love Story card collection and based on this weeks sketch from Stamping and Blogging.

Stampin Up Love Story Project Life Wedding Card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Australia

I have to be honest and say I found this week's sketch a little tricky. I just felt I needed another shape to break up the rectangles, so I cut a heart from the cardstock vellum and added that. I find this a subtle way to add a layer. I was much happier when the vellum heart was in place.I have listed al the products I have used in this week's card in the links below.

Here is the sketch that Sandi gave us to work with this week.

I'm really looking forward to see what the fabulous Stamping and Blogging girls around the world have done with this sketch. A couple of the girls are having a little break this week, but still plenty of inspiration! Hop on over to their blogs and have a look. Such fabulous talented ladies and viewing their creations each week is so inspiring to me.

Stampin' Up! Just Sayin' and Beach Hut Washi Tape for SB61

Hello lovelies, it's challenge time today over at Stamping and Blogging and I have a card to share with you featuring the Just Sayin' stamp set, matching Word Bubble Framelits and the lovely new Beach Hut Washi Tape.

Stampin' Up! Just Sayin' and Beach Hut Washi Tape for SB61 by Claire Daly Melbourne Australia at www.clairedaly.typepad.com

I love the bright happy colours in this washi tape: Crushed Curry, Pool Party and Real Red. Washi tape makes for quick and easy card embellishment don't you think? You'll be able to purchase this set from next Tuesday when the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue for 2014 goes live in Australia, I'm so excited! I've also used the Just Sayin' Stamp Set and Word Bubble Framelits, and layered them within two ovals cut using the Oval Framelits. I have pierced around the outside using the Paper Piercer and the Occasions Paper Piercing Template. Finally I embellished with some adhesive rhinestones and a punched heart.
