Hello there and welcome to today’s project of an updated pocket card and my brand new series of Wine & Dine Your Valentine! I will be doing a video on how to make this shortly, as well as posting my last project from the Spring Occasions Week 2017 of the adorable little ceramic flower pot I made with Oh So Succulent Bundle and Product Suite.
Once again, I used the Sealed With Love stamp set and Love Notes Framelits in the Sealed With Love Bundle. I also used the Flourishing Phrases stamp set for my sentiments.
The more I play with this bundle, the more I love it and use stamps in the set that I would normally never ink up, such as the little corner decoration. Since I used that little corner stamp, I’ve been looking at my stamp sets in a different way trying to find those little stamps that add that something extra special to your projects and I’ve found that most stamp sets have this, but have a tendency to be ignored, a lot. Check out the bundle in its entirety below. It’s amazing!
I think the modified pocket card is fun too and very easy to make! I would have to say that the Sealed With Love Bundle is my absolute favorite from the Spring Occasions Catalog and I really hope that Stampin’ Up! carries over this wonderful bundle to the annual catalog. It really be can used all year. I’m keeping it no matter what 🙂 Just look at the detail with a few stamps and fine gold embossing powder. When you use detailed or very small stamps, fine detail embossing powder is the only way to go so that it shows, well, the fine details of the stamp. The chunkier or regular embossing powder will kill your presentation and blur out your finely detailed image.
The Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack is specifically made for this bundle. Several of the stamps match perfectly with the patterned paper. In my pocket card, my pattern of paper chosen matches perfectly with the gold embossed heart and the accent stamp above the sentiment on the front of the pocket card. All of the products in the Sealed With Love Bundle are awesome with the paper stack. With how versatile this bundle is, some of the matching patterns are stamps and others are dies only. I love my options and you will too once you purchase these products today since Valentine’s Day is very close. If you purchase this bundle today, you will be playing with it by the end of the week. The price of the bundle is $45.75, which includes 27 photopolymer stamps and 14 dies. That’s a lot of fun stuff! Add the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack to your order and you automatically qualify to choose one of your favorite items from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. For every $50 qualifying purchase before tax and shipping, you get to pick a free item!
Even better, I will be making a blog post by the end of next the week with 4 brand new products being introduced to Sale-A-Bration, all of which I will be using for my Sale-A-Bration Week Series that I will be starting on February 20, 2017, along with my monthly Stamp Club, Kit of the Month and Product Shares, all of which I will be introducing to you shortly for March. It’s going to be a few very busy months here at Cindy B Designs and exciting ones too! I’m looking forward to having you join me!
During my video, I will show you how I made this pocket card and we can get a little bit more into detail as I feature this bundle. I see a lot of crafters incorporating Soft Sky into this purely Real Red and Whisper White-themed bundle and it looks lovely.
Since this is a product suite, that means there’s a lot of other coordinating products with it, such as 12 x 12 Real Red card stock, Mini Paper Clips Combo Pack, Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack, Sending Love Wood Embellishments and this! Sending Love Glassine Sheets! I’m having a love affair with glassine and vellum right now ?.
The gold foil heart I used is from last year’s Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit. I could have easily found an exact substitute by using our gold foil and die-cuts, but I had this lying around and figured that I might as well use it up. The rest of my images were die-cut. I will show you how I layered my pocket card up in the video. When you look closely at where I did my die-cutting, you can see where the dies automatically emboss in lines for additional detail. This really polishes up your projects.
The above is what my pocket card entails with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set. This stamp set is large with 2 CD cases, 18 rubber stamps and coordinates with the Flourish Thinlets Dies, which has 10 dies. This is also a bundle and the dies are beautiful. They are so dainty and delicate. This is one bundle I’m really looking forward to making some fun projects with and you can find this in our Annual Catalog & Idea Book. I had stamped the “I Love You” sentiment to fit perfectly in the oval opening of my pocket card. When you pull the card up, you will see the little secret hidden message. I’ve always thought that mixing foil card stock with glitter with vellum or glassine is fun and of course I have hundreds of ideas going through my head. You can be sure to watch for a project using this great bundle too!
So there my friends is a nice look at the Sending Love Product Suite. I owe you a few videos and I still need to post the adorable little ceramic flower pot I made using Oh So Succulent.
Thank you so very much for stopping by to visit me today and God bless!
