Sweet Conversations Cards

All week I am focusing on making valentines. Not the lovey kind (although I guess I should make one of those for Noah) but the friendship/ thinking of you kind. I have a class full of sweeties that deserve a bit of extra sunshine in their day, plus a bunch of friends I don’t get to see enough of these days. I want everyone to know I am thinking of them and grateful for them in my life.

Today’s card was inspired by two different challenges.

Global Design Project #325 | Color Challenge

The set I featured was the Sweet Conversations stamp set and Sweet Heart dies from the Stampin’ Up! Jan – June 2022 Mini Catalogue.

Using the same Sweet Conversation bundle and adding in some of the coordinating DSP I also showed this fun card.

The hearts on this card were die cut from cardstock (and heat embossed to add the sentiment to the green heart) and mostly from die-cutting from the DSP (bottom left sheet of mixed hearts). I love the watercolour patterns on the rainbow array of hearts.

To see all the details of these cards you can watch my video below.

Sweet Conversations Card

The NEW Jan – June 2022 Mini Catalogue is almost here – you can order from it beginning Tuesday, January 4th!! This sweet card was created using products from one of the upcoming Suites.

The layout of this card was inspired by a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (#FMS516)

This suite has dies that perfectly cut out the conversation hearts from the DSP – however once you’ve used all those up there are the stamp sets that allow you to stamp the hearts and the words separately to be able to truly mix and match colours. There is a beautiful red ribbon in this suite – but I HAD to pair this sheet of DSP up with our gorgeous Highland Heather Grosgrain Ribbon. The slight metallic shimmer to this thick ribbon makes it so fun. For just a bit more sparkle I embellished the card with the magnificent new Iridescent Rhinestones.

The banner die is also a part of the Sweet Hearts dies set – keep an eye out for it on many more projects, I can see myself using it often. If you want to see more of these products contact me to get your own copy of the Mini Jan – June 2022 Catalogue. Also – check out my upcoming Product Shares and Stamp Camp.

Playful Alphabet Christmas Card Sketch

You all know I LOVE a good Card Sketch – so I had to play along with Freshly Made sketches today.

I wanted to create a blue and silver Christmas card – but couldn’t find a blue DSP in my stash that felt like Christmas. So I created my own using the Festive Foliage stamp set. I embossed it with white and then dipped the whole piece in watered down blue reinker. Once that dried I created a silver mat by inking the edges of a slightly larger piece of cardstock with Versamark and then dipping in Silver embossing powder. Heat it up and voila! Silver border without using a whole piece of Silver Foil.

The rest of the card came together quickly as I cut out my sentiment from the Playful Alphabet dies ( this time I did use Silver Foil – with adhesive sheet on the back to make sticking down the letters a breeze). The tag is from the Tasteful Label Dies cut out of Misty Moonlight. I added the slits for the amazing Glittered Organdy ribbon using the Label Me Fancy Punch. A few Opal Rounds and the card was complete.

Here is a full list of supplies used. I am a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Canada – so if you’d like to place an order for any of these supplies – just click the images below or contact me directly. Also, please leave a comment below and make sure to follow this blog for more great inspiration!

Be Jolly – Freshly Made Sketch

This Santa set is so cute! I love the little extras that come with him – like this sweet Christmas tree.

I designed this card using the Freshly Made Sketch #508.

I fussy cut Santa so that I could pop him up in front of the tree. I also added some Wink of Stella to the trim of his hat and cuffs so that it would look a bit different than his beard.

Frosted Gingerbread- Another Sketch Challenge

I adore Sketch Challenges and this one from Freshly Made Sketches (#FMS507) is so cute! I actually created two cards – but one of them is also a fun fold.

The first card I created using this sketch uses a super fun colour combo – the snowflakes are Balmy Blue with Misty Moonlight sponged on the edges. The sentiment is heat embossed onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock and the background DSP is from the host reward – Pattern Party DSP. This card just seems so happy!

The second card I created is a fun fold card you can actually see all the details on yesterdays blog post.

For a full list of supplies to create the snowflake card see below – each item is even clickable if you live in Canada and want to pick up some new stamping supplies.

Counting Sheep Shimmer Card

I created a fun Counting Sheep card tonight using a sketch from Freshly Made Sketchs (#FMS502). These adorable sheep and the dies are both FREE Sale-a-bration items. For every $60 cdn order placed you can earn a fabulous reward.

I created a nearly identical card, using Poppy Parade Blends instead of Magenta Madness. I can’t decide which I prefer.

The shimmery clouds and balloons are a special touch to the card.

The look was created by using the scraps from my Wonderful Snowflakes to die cut the clouds and balloons. I can’t stand wasting such pretty paper – not even a scrap. The spaces left would also make great flowers or snowflakes.

You can see all the details in my video below. Make sure to subscribe to my channel while you are there.

Product List
Sheep Dies
$0.00

Right now – until September 30th, 2021 every $60 (before shipping and taxes) order placed with me earns you Sale-a-bration rewards AND an entry into my Birthday Giveaway draw for a Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. Go grab your wishlist!

The FREE Be Dazzling Specialty Paper from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Brochure adds a sparkle to any project! I used it today on this Sketch Challenge card inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.

Here is a full list of supplies I used to create this quick card. Don’t forget that for every $60cdn you spend before taxes and shipping, you earn a FREE sale-a-bration item! Time to start shopping 🙂
