Hello stampers. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and this fun and innovative stamp set with coordinating framelits is just awesome for both kids and grownups. It is great for mushy cards but also for fun or serious cards. I love how the framelits can be used for both cutting out puzzle pieces or for creating an embossed focal point. The very best part is that it is quick and easy. This product makes it look like you really slaved over making a super special card, so whoever receives one from you will really be feeling the love. Only you know how much fun you had making it and how easy it really was. I went online for inspiration and all but one of these cards was cased from other talented demonstrators. The first one was from Tami White.
I love how all Stampin’Up! products coordinate. If you really want to look “put together” then limit yourself to one suite at a time when you are purchasing instead of dabbling with several suites at a time. The All My Love ribbon is the perfect accent to this card. Now just to be contradictory, you can mix and match. The negative piece from the light pink heart is from the Tropical Escape paper from the annual catalog. Thanks to Tami White for the inspiration, I might not have thought of that! I could have used the epoxy heart droplets in the suite but I just noticed them now. You know what? This photo is a little out of focus, so I am going to add a droplet and take another picture just to make up for it!! I have been known to be impulsive, so why not live up to my reputation?
The next card is just so colourful and it makes me so happy. This one was originally created by Laura Vanverloh. She made it for an autism awareness event with is a perfect fit! I changed up the background by using Touches of Texture as well as the little hearts from Love You to Pieces.
This next card combines Grey Granite with Night of Navy for a perfect masculine card. Thanks to Jackier Beers for this clean and crisp design.
I really love the next card as Lori Wilcox was really thinking outside of the box. She used the High Tide set to create a beach scene which was then cut using the puzzle framelits. One piece was taken out to make a cute statement. A simple trick with this card is to put adhesive on the back before taking them out of the framelits. Flip it over, framelit and all and press onto your cardstock mat. Then pop the pieces out and they will stick to the mat without you having to align them all.
Here is a look of the panel before being attached to the card.
The last card was my own creation and I made it because I wanted to show my customers that this puzzle stamp had a good use. You see, it doesn’t fit with the puzzle framelit and we found that a little annoying. I then suggested that it could be used to stamp a background. So I tried it this afternoon and I loved how it turned out. This bright card also uses the rectangle stitched framelits. They are easy to adapt to different sizes as well. Tomorrow I will do a video on that and include it in this post.
A clean and simple card…the inside is pretty cute too. I used Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch and Lovely Lipstick for the puzzle piece background. Do you know what these colours all have in common? They are all this year’s “In Colours”. The only one missing is Grapefruit Grove. I cut out one “puzzle” from each of the colours mentioned and then I keep the leftovers in a small Ziploc bag inside the stamp case. That makes it super easy to add some of these colourful puzzle pieces to any card. I really loved playing with this set, it brought out my inner child and the bright colours were so cheerful on this cold winter day.
As you can see this bundle can be used for so much more than just Valentine’s Day. I hope you have been inspired by these cards and I challenge you to pop a card in the mail this week and show someone some love. If your wish list is long, you know what to do.
