Happy Valentine’s Day! If you have followed me for a while, you will know that I love versatile stamp sets – even better when they come with coordinating dies to make life easier!
One of my current fav’s is on pg 10 of the Occasions Catalog – it is called Lift Me Up and has a great balloon theme to it and sentiments that you can use for many different occasions, my favorite is ‘sending smiles across the miles’ – how fun is that? We can all use a stamp like that from time to time when you just want to bring a smile to someone’s face with a handmade snail mail card…
Here is my card…themed of course for Valentine’s Day…
You will find a link to the printable/downloadable Project Sheet detailing all measurements, colors & instructions on how to make this card below – look for the red text!
See that BIG beautiful balloon? LOTS of fun to make using dies from Up & Away Thinlits – I particularly love that big intricate balloon under which you can see the bands of color – yes, I did sneak a glitter layer in there – oh my I just love that beautiful glimmer paper to get my glitter fix!
AND so easy to make because in Up & Away Thinlits Dies you also get all of the dies to make those bands behind the top layer – check them out…
Isn’t that fun? You can play for hours with color combos! The red I used is Real Red and the pink basket is Blushing Bride – and the clouds are also easy to make as you get a total of 4 different cloud dies too – the possibilities are endless!
Love is in the air is stamped using a stamp from Lift Me Up – see all the stamps you get in this set further down…
Here is another close up of that big gorgeous balloon…I just love it! And see those little hearts? They were made using the Confetti Hearts Border Punch again punched from Red Glimmer Paper…
And here are all of those dies & stamps in these two items – which you can get as a BUNDLE and save 10% – this is a fantastic bundle of products that you can use all year long for cards, scrapbook pages & all kinds of projects…
And because I just love this card so much LOL – here is a view of all of the hearts & clouds on a slight angle so that you can see the definition a little better – sometimes white-on-white just works so nicely…
