Stampin’ Creative January blog hop


It’s a bit late, but Happy New Year!  Welcome to the Stampin’ Creative blog hop.  Our theme this month is Love and Hearts.  You may have arrived here from Lesley or started here, either way, welcome!

I’ll be honest, I was a bit surprised by how many heart things I had!  Punches, stamp sets, the whole works.  To say nothing of lots of lovely red cardstock.  So I went a bit overboard, perhaps.  But can you really?  Where Love and Hearts are concerned?  See what you think:

Three “pink” hearts punched out using the Sweetheart punch in melon mambo, blushing bride and rose red.  The stamped heart is from “Hello Life” and is stamped in Rose Red.  I mounted these on a mat of Very Vanilla, added a very skinny Early Espresso mat and the base is melon mambo.

I *love* the curvy gift box.  Just sayin’.  It is definitely not just for Christmas!  Again, I used the Sweetheart punch  to create a Whisper White heart.  The cloud-like heart is from a Sale-a-bration freebie called Sky is the Limit, which I’m really enjoying.  I stamped that in Real Red.  I used the circle framelit dies to cut out a circle in Gold Glimmer paper and layered them up to go on a Real Red curvy box.  I used Whisper White satin ribbon as a final touch.

My final project is a simple Valentine’s card.  I used a Real Red Base and then a skinny Basic Black layer topped off with a Whisper White mat.  I stamped the three heart images (I told you I had lots!) from the Hello Life stamp set in Real Red.  I mounted all three together and stamped in one go – you can do them separately if you prefer.  I stamped “Know What I love” from another SAB free set – “What I love” in Basic Black and put it together.  What does it say inside?  “You”, of course!

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s projects – I really enjoyed putting these together.

  1. Love these Caroline – the full hearts and the outline hearts are lovely in their simplicity, and what a cute way to use the smoke heart trail from that stamp set for your curvy keepsake box – cute!

  2. Well, there may be lots of hearts but I thought the use of the stamps from Hello Life and Sky is the Limit were a real inspirational touch. Well done!


  3. Oh I must get that set out again, your makes have totally inspired me! Not sure which one is my favourite, I keep changing my mind!! But at least I have one for real – thanks!
