Stamp to the Max Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamp to the Max January Blog Hop. This month we are featuring stamp sets and supplies from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog. If you are hopping along with us this morning, you may have arrived from Laura Widdison's blog. I am number seven on the list of bloggers.

I am sharing with you today a set of three Valentine's cards I made featuring the Hearts a Flutter stamp set (129252 clear/129249 wood), matching Framelits Dies (130159) and More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper (129309). If you love the Hearts a Flutter set and can't live without matching dies, Stampin' Up! has bundled these products for us at a discount (131097 clear/131098 wood).

This layout is a simple one which I go to often without regret. It not only showcases the fabulous Designer Series Paper but also the different shapes offered to us in this new bundle, including the flags and hearts. The soft colors of the More Amore DSP are romantic and just perfect for your sweetheart or friend lucky enough to receive a Valentine. I was not a fan of pairing Real Red and Primrose Petals at first, but love the result when set to card. I added a lot of texture to these cards using both the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (120175) and the Square Lattice Folder (119976).


Stamp Sets: Hearts A Flutter, Wacky Wishes (hostess set)
Cardstock: Primrose Petals, Real Red, Pool Party, Basic Black, Very Vanilla
Ink: Real Red, Basic Black, Primrose Petals Classic Inks
Other: Hearts A Flutter Framelit Dies, Vintage Wallpaper & Square Lattic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, Small Heart punch, Rhinestone Basic Jewels
