Heartfelt Masculine Valentine

Happy Valentine's Day!

Since it's Valentine's Day, I thought I'd share the card I made my hubby. I always use a masculine color combo for his Valentine, and this time I used Merry Merlot, Crumb Cake & Early Espresso. I've written a tutorial for the card, and you can find it below.


The card features the Heartfelt Bundle from the Stampin' Up! January - June, 2020 Mini Catalog. The bundle includes the Heartfelt Stamp Set and the Heart Punch Pack. Purchasing them together in the bundle saves you 10%!

I love having different hearts in one stamp set, and having punches to punch most of them out. So much fun! There are even more heart stamps than what I used, including a scallop one that coordinates with the scallop heart punch in the punch pack.


The Merry Merlot piece was embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder, and the Early Espresso heart was embossed with the Absolutely Argyle 3D Embossing Folder.


My husband plays the guitar, so I just had to add the ukulele trinket from the Tropical Oasis Trinkets. He plays the bass guitar at our church, so I thought the ukulele could pass as an acoustic bass, since it has 4 strings like a bass. I know he's going to love it!


You won't believe the name of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) I used...Pressed Petals Specialty DSP. As you can see, there are a couple designs in the pack that don't include flowers. 😉 You can find this DSP in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. I also used the 5/16" Braided Burlap Trim from the Mini Catalog. I love fraying the ends.

Positive Thoughts Coordination Product Card


I've been in love with the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set ever since I saw it in the Stampin' Up! January - June 2020 Mini Catalog, but I LOVE it even more now that we have the Nature's Thoughts Dies that coordinate with them! There are dies to die-cut the images in the stamp set, along with a few extras to make your projects even more special!

If you want these wonderful dies, you'll need to hurry! They're available while supplies last or until March 31, 2020...whichever comes first.


I sponged the Very Vanilla base layer with Crumb Cake ink. I love the rustic look this gives the card. The color combo I used is Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Rococo Rose, and So Saffron.


The frame was made with a die from the Nature's Thoughts Dies that die-cuts an embossed-bordered rectangle. It doesn't die-cut a frame, but I show how to turn it into a frame in the video below.


The greeting was die-cut with one of the dies in the Stitched Rectangle Dies. These dies really look  good with the Nature's Thoughts Dies. The greeting was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Dimensions:
  • Thick Very Vanilla:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Very Vanilla:  4" x 5-1/4" (sponged base layer), 6-1/2" x 3-3/4" (flowers, leaves, & butterfly), and a scrap piece (greeting rectangle)
  • Crumb Cake:  3-1/4" x 4-3/4" (frame)

My Coordination Product Release Cards


Above are the cards I made with the Coordination Products I purchased. I demonstrate how to make the top three cards in my Facebook/YouTube Live (Recorded) video. They feature (from left to right) the Pleased as Punch DSP, Sending Flowers Dies, & Ladybugs Dies. 

I just got done making individual videos for the two cards on the bottom, and I'll post each one within the next two days. These two cards feature the Birthday Dies and the Nature's Thoughts Dies.

Below are close-up pictures of the three cards demonstrated in my recorded Live video, which is below the card pictures.

The only die set I haven't purchased yet is the Special Day Dies. One of these days, I'll purchase the Special Someone Stamp Set, and get the dies  then. In the meantime, here's a picture of a card that Stampin' Up! made with the dies:
