Stampin' Up Sweet Sayings notecards, quick and simple DIY Valentines and more!!!


Sweet Sayings notecards
Sometimes you just need a lot of cards and QUICK!  I love these precious Sweet Sayings notecards from Stampin' Up for this purpose. As I set out to do my Valentine's post, I gathered up all of my current sets that had any "love" theme and was going to just make simple valentines. Then I remembered the ruffled stretch trim in crisp cantaloupe and coastal cabana, and HAD to fuss up the cards some. THEN I realized that the cards would work for many occasions and I just had a big stamp party and used every stamp I could think of from the sets that I grabbed. I had so much fun! Here's what I came up with!  12 precious cards and in not time at all!!! Oh, and by the way, Real red, coastal cabana and crisp cantaloupe envelopes are included in the kit!
Yes, you want to see that heart close up, don't you? It is adorable!

going maritime!

I think this little bird looks like he is on stage or in a window sill. Aww...
going global...
See, the card is cute with or without the fussy ribbon. But for Valentine's I like fuss!
It's hard to see here, but three rhinestones really spruce up this precious card.


simple thanks...



 just for fun...

Stampin' Up supplies used:
Sweet Sayings notecards (not in catalog, in "Valentine's section on online store) INCLUDES ENVELOPES
paper: red glimmer paper
stamp sets: Geometrical (Occasions catalog - OC), Hello Sailor (OC) , Hip Notes (OC), Just Sayin' (OC), Language of Love (OC), Simply Celebrate (OC), Starburst Sayings (OC) Love You More (exclusive vals set)

These were sooo simple. I used the markers to color the stamps and that's really it. I added the trim using double sided tape folded in half on itself lengthwise. Added a few rhinestones here and there. For the glitter hearts, I used the small heart punch on the red glimmer paper. WOW, that's easy!!!
