You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Use a Stamparatus to stamp the Happy Valentines Day Heart (Heartfelt Bundle – part of My Favorite Things) onto a piece of scrap paper first, then onto a piece of Whisper White card stock.  

Crop with the coordinating Heart Punch.

Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Use the Small Bloom Punch (Sale-A-Bration – Free with $100 Purchase) to crop the flowers from the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper.

POP OF PERSONALITY! Add the coordinating Holiday Rhinestone Jewels (Pumpkin Pie & Coastal Cabana) and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel that has been colored with a Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend. 

FOR THE PERFECT POLISH: Use an envelope liner die (Beautiful Layers Dies) and the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper to create an envelope liner.  Adhere to the inside of a Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Medium Envelope with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. TIP: To avoid embossing and plate marks, I dedicate a relatively clean bottom cutting plate for envelope liners.  Flip the pattern over and cut on the opposite side.  You can use a bone folder to help any soften lines.
