Sweet Stampin’ Up Valentine and the current Weekly Deals

Hey what day is it?  HA HA, I know you said hump day!

I hope your week is going smoothly. Since I am a day late in getting this post up I can say mine has been just a tad bumpy.  Hopefully as I sail downhill to the weekend, that will all change!

I have another cute valentine card to share today.  This one is made with the You plus Me stamp set and the Groovy Love stamp set. Both are perfect for valentines day!

Lots of cute stuff in this card and it was not to challenging to make!  The patterned heart paper is part of the Stacked with Love DSP. The little heart punched out in the bottom right corner also has paper from this stack peeking out behind it.  The tiny love and the polka dot heart are both from the Groovy Love stamp set.  One of my favorite elements to this card is the burlap. Burlap and red always looks so nice together!

I found a few blog challenges out there that fit perfect with my valentine theme so I am entering this over at SUO blog for their current Valentine Wishes challenge and over at Just Us Girls for their Photo Week Challenge # 277.

Fun valentine card with Stampin’ Up! You Plus Me stamp set

Happy Sunday Crafty Folks!

I have been playing with all the new Catalog goodies I received and I seem to be in the mood for Valentines day!  I decided to try another one with one of the fun new sets available – You Plus Me. This coordinates beautifully with the new Stacked with Love DSP.

f56a106f-e92e-4073-a466-7c60344757f9_zps154d99bdI am loving this new DSP! Sometimes I get a paper pack and I don’t like all the papers, but that is not this case for this pack! There is definitely a valentine/love theme in the paper but many of the patterns could be used in lots of other ways and I love that. This stamp set is really fun too!I can see me using the ampersand quite frequently and there are lots of occasions to use the various hearts in card making and scrapbooking. A few things to point out on this card and the cute little embellishments. It is hard to see in this picture, but I used one of the new Itty Bitty Accent Epoxy stickers on the tiny heart in the You and Me stamp.  It adds just a little bit of dimension. Also I used a wire heart from the Basic Hodgepodge Clips available in Annual Catalog. The cute white bow is made of the New Cotton twine available in the occasions catalog. It is so SOFT! I can’t wait to use it in more of my projects.

Hope you enjoy my little valentine. Have you started working on any valentines yet?  🙂
