Stamp 'N Hop Blog Hop - Occasions
Welcome to the Stamp 'N Hop blog hop!!! I am Joyce Whitman, from Ohio, and this is my first blog hop! I am so excited to be joining other very talented stampers. We will be doing the blog hops on the second Saturday of each month. This month we are highlighting projects made from the occasions catalog (which will be available until May 31, 2018). Don't forget to check out the other projects we have to share with you. All the links to the other bloggers are at the bottom of this post.
As I was working on designing this card, I saw a card that we made at the conference last weekend. I loved the layout and decided to use it for this card. You can use this layout for so many different cards and even scrapbook pages.
To make this card you will need the following products:
Whisper White Thick Cardstock #140272
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
Basic Black Cardstock #121045
- cut at 2 1/4" x 5 1/2"
- cut at 2 1/4" x 3 3/4"
Melon Mambo Cardstock #115320
- cut at 2" x 4"
Whisper White Cardstock #100730
- cut at 2" x 2"
- cut at 2" x 3 1/2"
- scrap for the sentiment
Petal Passion Designer Series Paper #145589
- cut at 2" x 5 1/2"
This is an easy card that takes no time at all to put together. You will stamp the heart from the Heart Happiness stamp set and cut it out with a coordinating framelit from the Sweet and Sassy framelits. I also cut out 2 hearts, the same size, in Melon Mambo. For the background on the white paper, I used another stamp from the same set that has 6 little hearts on it. I turned the stamp a little to the left so the hearts were at an angle. The stamped heart is popped up using a Stampin Dimensional.
For the sentiment I used the Banners For You stamp set. I made one of the as a Valentine's card and the other one as a thank you card. You can use hearts for any occasion, it doesn't have to be just for Valentine's Day. Of course, I had to add a little bit of bling with the Rhinestones.
I hope you enjoyed Karen's project, isn't it awesome! You can click on the box below to get to Bobbi's post or you can click on their name in the list below the box.

I need to make my husband's Valentine card yet (I've kinda left it late!), your card has inspired me to get to my craft desk to start stamping 😁

Great card! I'm always hesistant to use black and white as the contrast is so sharp, but the dash of red gives the card a wonderfully bold look. Love it!

The colors in your card are wonderful! A pop of color on the black and white background is really stunning. I will be CASEing :) It has been so much fun to "meet" many fellow stampers through this blog hop. I look forward to seeing many more of your beautiful cards. Thanks for sharing, and see you next month!

Hi Laurie! Thank you for your kind comments on my cards. The biggest compliment you can give me is that you want to CASE my card. That just warms my heart! I agree, it has been a lot of fun doing the blog hop. This is my first one, so it has been a learning experience. Although, it was not as difficult as I thought it would be.
