Stampin’ Up! Sealed With Love for the Dream Theme Blog Hop


We’re back with another Dream Theme Blog Hop!  This month we’re focusing on Valentine projects and I created a card with the Stampin’ Up! Sealed With Love stamp set to share today.


My card design was inspired by TGIFC Sketch 90.


I started by adhering a panel from the Falling in Love DSP to a panel of Sahara Sand card stock with SNAIL.  I added a Lace Doily with the Very Vanilla side up over the center of the panel, adhering it with SNAIL.  I cut a heart from another panel of the Falling in Love DSP with a Sweet & Sassy Framelits Die and adhered it with SNAIL over the Lace Doily.


I cut a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with the So Detailed Thinlits Die and I wrapped it around the edges of the DSP panel.  I adhered the die cut in the center and around the back with SNAIL.  I stamped the sentiment from the Sealed With Love photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Sahara Sand card stock, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.


I cut the sentiment out with a Layering Ovals Framelits Die and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the panel.  I added three gold enamel hearts from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack to the panel and then adhered the panel to a Sahara Sand card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


I stamped the scroll image from the Sealed With Love stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on the top and bottom of a Very Vanilla card stock panel inside the card.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Bright Project Kit

I recently purchased the Stampin’ Up! Birthday Bright Project Kit and I put it together to share with you today.  I didn’t need as many tags as the kit creates so I modified one of the sets of tags to turn them into cards since it seems that I never have enough of those!

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blast Masculine Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blast stamp set to create a masculine card to share today.  If you haven’t picked up the Urban Underground Specialty DSP…you need to!  The paper has so many great designs and they’re perfect for masculine cards!  I know that many of us struggle with those, this paper makes them really easy.

Hello and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop, formerly known as the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  We’ve got a new logo and a slightly different name, but we’re still the same group.  Hope that you like the new look!  🙂

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sunshine Sayings and Sealed With Love stamp sets to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today.  We’ve got a color challenge and this is what I created for it.
