Seasonally Scattered Valentine’s Card – Stampin’ Up!

I rarely use retired products in my cards, but I couldn’t resist using the recently retired Seasonally Scattered “love” sentiment for at least one Valentine’s card this season.  I think it pairs just perfectly with the Hello You Thinlits Dies, don’t you?

Seasonally Scattered Valentine (1 of 6)It is rare that a card design arrives in my brain fully formed, but this was one of those instances.  I could instantly picture how great the Seasonally Scattered image would look in gold embossing powder (which doesn’t photograph well, here… bummer!).

The Red Glimmer Paper was the perfect partner for the Hello You Thinlits Dies too!  Throw on a few hearts, and some rhinestones, and voila!  Some of you may have noticed that I used two different sizes of small hearts…. you might be wondering where I got that cute little tiny heart shape.  For those of you who were paying attention, it is from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies.  That set has so many cute little extras!  I haven’t actually used it to make a treat bag just yet, but those little hearts have come in handy on several projects!

Of course you know that I don’t like to leave the inside of a card naked, so I used a few hearts on the inside to finish things off.

I love how this card turned out, and it was so quick & easy to make! If you are a fan of this project, I hope you will pin it to Pinterest for me.  You will find a “pin it” button at the very bottom of this post following the supply list.

Seasonally Scattered Boxed Card Set – Stampin’ Up!

Today’s project is another boxed set of cards featuring the Seasonally Scattered stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  I was inspired to create these cards by my friend Amy Koenders.  She created a similar card that introduced me to the baby wipe technique.  I had never heard of this method before, but I am in love!  I adore how the colors blend to create unique patterns.  To view Amy’s card and photo tutorial of the technique click here.

First of all, let me apologize for the photos.  I couldn’t get them to show all the details of the Blackberry Bliss layer, which is dry embossed using the Stylish Stripes embossing folder.  In the pictures, the layer just ends up looking black, but when I tried to adjust the exposure everything else became washed out.  So, just imagine a great textured effect under the main panel. 🙂

For my stamped image, I used the baby wipe technique described in Amy’s post, but instead of creating stripes, I just used random drops of color.  I love the effect that is created by combining the Old Olive, Blackberry Bliss, Tangelo Twist, and Hello Honey inks.

After my birthday party a few weeks ago, I had a lot of thank you notes to write.  This card design was perfect because it was really simple, but beautiful at the same time.  I was able to make 25 cards in under an hour (and then it took me another hour to write the notes).  I will definitely revisit this card design for thank you notes in the future!   If you like this project, I hope you will pin it to Pinterest for me. You will find a “pin it” button at the end of this post below the supply list.
