Welcome back to my blog for Swap Card Sunday! This week I’m sharing eleven more Valentine’s Day cards. These are all cards made by other demonstrators from North America. I love the variety. It’s a great way to find new card layouts, color combinations, or to fall in love with a stamp set you may have previously overlooked.
I challenge you to try a new layout this week inspired by one of the cards pictured below.
Valentine’s Day Cards
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Next Sunday I’ll be sharing some ideas using the products in the Sale-a-Bration brochure? Did you know that you can choose a free item out of the Sale-a-Bration brochure for EVERY $50 you purchase? There’s no limit! You can earn one or one hundred free products!
Thanks for stopping by! Today’s post is special – it’s the monthly Stampers’ Dozen Blog Hop featuring some wonderful Stampin’ Up! demonstrator “Leaders” from the US and Canada. Granted, you may already know that if you’re coming from Janet’s or Jodi”s blogs. We’re highlighting new products in the Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration brochure. I’m sure you’ll see a wide variety of projects this week!
I hate to admit, but I almost forgot about the hop this month. I was running short on time but then realized that I hadn’t shared with you the final six cards I’d made for swaps last month! SO….you’re getting six for the price of one today from me! And, if you’d like to see the cards I received back from the swaps (there were almost 200), I’m sharing them each and every Sunday in my Swap Card Sunday Series!
Whenever I design cards for a large swap, I really work hard to create a nice variety. A few of the layouts are repeated. But, I think I successfully used a different stamp set or suite for each card.
While making these cards, I have to admit, I fell in love with Sweet Sugarplum! That color has never done anything for me – even if it was a top seller! BUT, when paired with Old Olive, I’m in love! I’ve completely fallen in love with the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper which features these two. I love the floral prints on one side and the more geometric patterns on the other. Have I used the word “love” enough? Ha Ha!
If you get lost along the way, here is a list of everyone involved in the hop this month (note these links will take you to their blogs and not directly to the hop post):
Do you send Valentines? If you do – or if you want to start a new tradition this year – I’m sharing eight card ideas with you in this week’s edition of Swap Card Sunday! I recently participated in a couple of HUGE swaps with other demonstrators. Last week I received back over 180 different card ideas that I’ll be sharing with you in the coming weeks. I love seeing and sharing these ideas. We all have different styles. So, looking at swaps definitely helps get me out of a stamping rut.
This group of cards features just about all of the products from the Sending Love Suite found on pages 14 – 15 in the Occasions Catalog. I especially love the framelits dies in this set. The mini envelopes are just so stinkin’ adorable! And, that heart edgelit? OMG so cute! Did you notice that the Sending Love DSP Stack contains 6 sheets (instead of the normal 4) of each pattern? I love that! It helps if you want to send out a huge stack of Valentines to your loved ones next month.
Links to all of the products in the Sending Love Suite are located at the bottom of the post.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope some of these projects inspired you today.
