Snuggles & Smooches

I told you I had made another card for the Color Challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary…there is still time to play along!  You can see the original card I did for the challenge here.  Love the combination of Blackberry Bliss, Rose Red and Blushing Bride!

 

Snuggles and Smooches 2

So, here’s another card using the same color combination and Snuggles & Smooches.

  • The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Blushing Bride, folded in half.
  • The Blackberry Bliss layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.
  • On the 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 layer of Whisper White, the small floral image from Snuggles & Smooches was stamped with Blackberry Bliss three times in the lower right corner.
  • The line image from Gorgeous Grunge was stamped with Rose Red ink along the bottom and right side.
  • The splatter image form Gorgeous Grunge was randomly stamped with Blushing Bride ink in the background.
  • It’s All About You from Hooray It’s Your Day was stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink.
  • The Whisper White layer was adhered to the Blackberry Bliss layer, then offset on the front in the lower right corner.
  • The small flower in Itty Bitty Accents was punched from Rose Red three times and adhered in the background.  Rhinestones were placed in the middle.

OK…that’s it!  I loved how it turned out…and it was pretty quick to pull together!

SUOC115 Snuggles and Smooches

It’s all about Valentine Wishes for the Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge this time!  Valentine’s Day will be here soon!  Here’s what I came up with using the special Stampin’ Up! set, Snuggles and Smooches…it’s not in the catalog, you need to see it in the online store.

 

SUOC115 Snuggles and Smooches 2

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Real Red, folded in half.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 Crumb Cake cardstock layer, the large and small flower swirls were stamped in the background with White Craft Ink.
  • LOVE was stamped with Real Red on a curved banner of Whisper White and a small swatch of Stacked with Love Designer Paper placed along the right side of the banner.
  • Black Bakers Twine was wrapped around the banner to hide the seam and tied with a bow, then popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The heart was stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink on Real Red and punched with the Sweetheart Punch.  The two small hearts were stamped with Real Red on Whisper White and punched with the Small Heart Punch.  Both were popped up on front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Finally, a little Rhinestone was added to the large heart.

Lots of fun on this card!  I loved how it turned out.  Now check out SUO Challenges to see what the rest of the Design Team did with the Valentine Wishes theme!

Snuggles and Smooches

Here’s one that I made…you’ll have to come back tomorrow to see the other one.  This one I had some scraps of Stacked with Love Paper Pack sitting on my desk from making Valentine Kits, so I thought I’d use a few of them up.

 

Snuggles and Smooches

The details:

  • The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Whisper White, folded in half.
  • The Real Red layer is 3 3/4 x 5.
  • I added 3/4″ strips of Stacked with Love Designer Paper Stack along the bottom.
  • Snuggles and Smooches was stamped with Calypso Coral and punched with the 2″ Circle Punch, then layered on the 2 3/8 Scallop Circle Punch piece of Basic Black.  It is popped up on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • LOVE was stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink Pad on the left side.
  • I added a couple Rhinestone jewel accents and a punched Red Glimmer Heart for some bling!

Super easy and fun!  Oh, and I used an old Create with Connie and Mary sketch for my layout!
