Welcome to the February Pals Blog Hop. This month we are sharing what we love – our favorite Stampin’ Up! products and our favorite crafting techniques.
You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Nicole Watt at Pixel Maven’s Retreat. Use the full lineup below to move along from blog to blog so you see all of the new projects.
I challenged myself to create a valentine without any pink or red. My card design for the Pals blog hop is a mix of Very Vanilla, Night of Navy and the stunning floral die cut that comes with the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Embellishments Kit.
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- The “love life” sentiment (I’m sure diggin’ that font) is from A Happy Thing stamp set, one of the free gifts offered as part of the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration (PDF) promotion.
- More than a valentine. This card could easily work for wedding, anniversary, friendship and more.
- A single rhinestone accents the heart (Sweetheart Punch).
- The Night of Navy 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon lends such a rich touch.
- To dress up the Medium Very Vanilla Envelope, I cropped a perfectly sized envelope liner (Envelope Liner Framelits Dies) in Silver Foil
- Hover and Pin it! Here’s a photo showing key products for today’s card that you can save or pin to Pinterest. See ALL my product photos in one spot on my How to Make Simple Cards board on Pinterest.
