Colour Throwdown Challenge Stampin’ Up’s Bloomin’ Love Valentine’s Card

Happy Valentine’s Day!! I couldn’t not share a Valentine’s Card on Valentine’s Day! I don’t feel like I have made that many this year, compared to last year. You know those memories that you get notified of on Facebook, well I have had one every day this week and they have all been cards that were published on my blog last year, I was obviously feeling the love!!

For today’s card I have tried a bit of a different challenge. I have noticed a few people taking part in this challenge on Instagram and I am always looking for ways to step out of my comfort zone when it comes to colour combinations so I thought I would give it a whirl…..

This weeks Colour Throwdown #379

So I chose Blushing Bride A4 Cardstock for my base, cut at 4 1/8 inch and scored at 5 7/8inches. I then cut a mat from Rich Razzleberry A4 Cardstock measuring 3 7/8 x 5 5/8 inches which I adhered a mat of Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum over measuring 3 6/8 x 5 4/8 inches.

Using the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Die and my BigShot I die cut the heart from Gold Foil Sheets. The matching Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set and Die set are available as a Bundle saving 15% and it is gorgeous, I will not be parting ways with mine for a long time to come!

I stamped the accent flowers in Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink on to some more Blushing Bride cardstock and die cut them and adhered them on to my gold heart. I then adhered some gold sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment. I popped my heart up on some Stampin Dimensionals and popped my card front up on to my card base.

Finally breaking out the stamps in the Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set I stamped the Banner stamp and my sentiment inside my banner in Melon Mambo Classic Ink on some more Blushing Bride cardstock. I also stamped three hearts and fussy cut these out with my Paper Snips. I popped my banner and hearts up on dimensionals and covered my hearts in Dazzling Details and my flowers on my heart in Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Pen for that extra bit of glitter!

I hope you have a lovely Valentine’s weekend whatever you are up to and don’t forget to go and grab those Sale-a-Bration items that retire for good on Monday 15th February!

Make It Monday Stampin’ Up Sale-a-Bration This Day Notebooks

Make it Monday! I am hoping to post regularly with some creative projects that are not cards to try and push myself out of my comfort zone and showcase the versatility of Stampin Up products.  Don’t get me wrong I love my cards and would say its my “thing” but I love all the inspirational projects I see on other blogs and Pinterest and want to recreate them so Monday’s posts will be where I will share my makes with you!

As some of you may know I am a fairly new Stampin’ Up Demonstrator and I am working hard to build my business.  So for today’s Make It Monday I decided to start making my “Thank you” and “Welcome” packs.  I will be sending these packs out to my customers and anyone that joins my team as a little Thank you!

This Day Notebooks

I have a stash of memo pads that have been waiting to be brightened up.  I got these from my local pound shop, you normally get 3 or 4 in a pack for a £1, bargain!  So I measured the notebook including the front page, the spine on the top and added a couple of inches of cardstock at the back for me to be able to adhere the cardstock to the notebook.  So the four pieces of A4 cardstock for the covers of my notebooks were, Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Rich Razzleberry.  These pieces measured 4 1/8 inch x 7 inches.  I then scored these at 5 7/8 inches and 6 1/8 inches.  I took some Tonbow Mono Multi Glue and spread some on the back piece of the cardstock and adhered this to the back of my notebook.

 

To decorate my notebooks I decided to use the Sale-a-Bration Project Life “This Day” Mini Card Collection.  You can get these free as part of the Sale-a-Bration promotion with every £45 you spend, see more details below.

These cards are perfect, so bright and cheerful and just the right size, I had to cut off a 1/4 inch off the bigger card.  I adhered these to the fronts of my notebooks with some Fast Fuse adhesive.  I then took the coordinating smaller cards and popped these up on Stampin Dimensionals . To finish off my bright and cheerful notebooks I just popped on some Brights Candy Dots.
