Day 2 of “7 days of Stampin’ Up! Valentine inspirations” by KristyLee


Good morning Friends,

I am happy  you all are back for Day 2 of “7 days of Stampin’ Up! Valentine inspirations.”

So lets get on with it!

Day 2:


I have used 2 different V-Day stamp sets today.

1. The bird with Love heart is from the brand new set called “Love You More #131853.” I have colored the stamp with 6 different SU Stamp and Write markers.

2.  I used a retired set called “Valentine Defined.” The stamp that is horizontal hearts was stamped using Real Red. For the sprigs, I used 2 different SU Stamp and Write markers. I use to go to a monthly Stampin’ Up! work shop. The demonstrator received 2 of these stamp sets, one by accident. So she used it as a door prize, and I won!! I wanted this set anyways, and then when she did a name in the hat drawing for it, I was like me me me me! And sure enough my name was picked. I so happy to happy!! I think I made like 30 something cards, because I  really like this stamp!

The stamps have been stamped onto the Top Note Bigz Die #113463. The card stock base is “Strawberry Slush”  so is the DSP, it is from the “2013-2015 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack #130136.” You get 40 12×12 DOUBLE-SIDED sheets in these packs.

The ribbon is new also it’s called “Island Indigo 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon #131151.”

And added some Jeweled brads.


Here is the inside of the card. I have used the Top Note Bigz Die #113463. The sentiment inside of from the set “Valentine Defined.” Stamped in Real Red. I used the DSP with the “Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die #125596.” I like to decorate the insides of my cards. And if you know me then you know I LOVE to use the Top Note die cut for the inside, among other reasons to use the Top Note. (It is my most used Die.)
