Take a Peek: Valentine Defined

Stampin pretty valentine defined occasions mini catalog
Looking for the Pals Hop I promised you yesterday?  We'll I'm all ready for it (card done, post written).  However, I now realize it's NEXT Tuesday (Dec. 14).  Oops!  Sorry, gang.  I quickly whipped up today's 4 x 4 card and envelope, both offering sneak peeks from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

NEW PRODUCT ALERT!  Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog products will be available for purchase with on Jan. 4, 2011.  New products are in red.

  • Stampin up valentine defined occasions mini card Valentine Defined is a flirty and fun new stamp set.  The heart tree is adorable and is easily colored with Stampin' Right Markers (Real Red and Basic Gray).
  • The "love" stamp (also from Valentine Defined) gets a little extra oomph with the help of a Black Flourish Designer Jewel (Holiday Mini) and a Real Red heart (popped up on a piece from Stampin' Dimensionals).
  • The envelope flap is highlighted by a snapshot of Love Impressions Specialty Designer Series Paper.  
  • The final touch is the strings of hearts from Valentine Defined on the back of the card.  I love how it wraps up the look.  It's not a wheel . . . just a long stamp.

    Love the classic red and white, and the little tree is super cute. Thanks for sharing! Do you have tips somewhere for using the treat cups? I have some cups but haven’t actually used them yet. I tried to search for it and end up getting distracted by other cool things on your site…argh! While searching, I saw you were going to do a workshop of a lifetime…I’ll need to search that now and see what you guys did 🙂 Thanks for your help!
