I am excited to be headed to Houston for a Stampin’ Up’s Leadership Conference – any Stampin’ Up! sponsored event is always awesome and I look forward to a few days immersed in all things creative – and getting to see some of my favorite stampin’ friends from across the US and Canada!
I have scheduled a few posts while I am gone – hope you enjoy them!!
First one is a Valentine Card that was inspired by my friend, Mary Waring. She reads my blog – so Thank you, Mary for the inspiration!! I loved your card!
This uses the Love You More stamp set which is a special release for Valentine’s Day – – clear #131853 and wood #131850
The little banners are a sneak peek from a Saleabration stamp set and coordinating punch! Saleabration is Stampin’ Up’s! biggest sale of the year and it runs from January 28 – March 31. If you purchase $50 in Stampin’ Up! products during Saleabration you get to select an item from the Saleabration flyer for free!!! Woot! Purchase $100 and get two items free, and so on! WOOT!!
The “love” on the little banner uses one of the stamps from the Banner Blast stamp set – FREE during Saleabration!!
And the coordinating banner punch makes it easy to create the cute banner really quickly – it is a FREE Saleabration item also –
Other supplies used on this card are :
Real Red, Whisper White, Coastal Cabana and Crumb Cake Card Stock
I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to add a few splotches of color (I stamped off before stamping them on my card so that I could get a subtle looking splotch).
I used a Tea Lace Doily – I always think of Valentines when I see a doily.
A bit of red glimmer paper was punched with a small heart punch and slipped into the birds beak.
Hope you enjoy my card!
OMG, Laura. What an honor to have inspired you; thank you for the honorable mention. I'm here in Houston also; I hope we run into each other.
