Happy New Year! It’s time for another Sweethearts Global Blog Hop where you get to hop along and see what Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators around the world are working on.
Celebrate the Season of Love with Country Floral Lane
The joy of the Christmas Season is behind us. It’s a new year and it’s time to turn our thoughts to Valentine’s Day – the season of LOVE! As a crafter, I’m always working a few months ahead of the upcoming holidays. My Christmas prep started in earnest in October and by December I was already thinking about Valentine’s Day – a sweet time to remember the special people in our lives.
The new January to April Mini Catalog goes live tomorrow (January 5th) and right from the start the beautiful product suite on pages 8 and 9 caught my eye. The soft colors of the Designer Series Paper just called to me and begged me to create with them. What else could I do but grab the Country Floral Lane Suite collection and begin creating?
When you have such beautiful Designer Series Papers, it’s so easy to create beautiful cards quickly, especially when you let the Designer Series Paper be the star of the show. Here are two of the cards I made featuring products from the Country Floral Lane Suite collection.
In both cards, the gorgeous Designer Series Paper takes center stage with minimal stamping and embellishments. I featured these cards in my live demonstration – you can watch the replay on my Crafty Klock YouTube channel
Beyond the Florals
I don’t know about you but one of the biggest challenges I have is creating masculine cards, especially when the products don’t really seem geared to guys. With this in mind, I challenged myself to create a Valentine’s Day card for guys using products from the Country Floral Lane Suite. Here’s the card I came up with – how did I do?
