Catching Butterflies, JOIN STAMPIN’ UP!, Valentines

Catching Butterflies Valentine Card

Today I combined two stamp sets to make one card (raise your hand if you have done that!) and I wanted to use one of the new FREE stamps sets that you can earn by purchasing $50.00 worth of Stampin’ Up Products.  The Catching Butteflies Stamp Set is not a “valentine stamp set”, but the sentiments say otherwise!

I did change it just to bit so instead of catching butterflies….she was catching hearts instead! 

I used the several of the Sweet Conversations Suite of Products, Sweet Hearts Dies and Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper.  I chose the heart patterned pattern in the center of the top row.

I also used this maybe overlooked set of embossing folders that is in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog called Dotty Hearts Embossing Folder.  There are two embossing Folders in this set and they are small enough to fit through the Mini Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine.  So you get two designs! 

The Real Red cardstock strip is embossed with the heart pattern on the left above.

I stamped this sweet girl on a piece of Basic White Cardstock that I die cut with the Hippo & Friends Dies.  And then colored her with Real Red and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.  The hearts she is catching were die cut using the Sweet Hearts Dies pictured above from both Real Red and Blushing Bride Cardstock…they are the small hearts from the inside of the chain of hearts.

If you would like to make this card, these are the supplies that you will need:

  • Catching Butterflies Stamp Set (Sale-A-Bration item)
  • Dies: Hippo & Friends, Sweet Hearts Dies, and Layering Circles (or alternate us 1 1/4” Circle Punch & 1 1/2” Circle Punch)
  • Dotty Hearts Embossing Folder
  • Basic White Thick Cardstock – Cut 5 1/2” x 8 1/2”; Score and fold at 4 1/4”
  • Real Red Cardstock – Cut 5 1/2’ x 4”, Cut 5 1/8” x 1 7/8” (emboss), plus a scrap for 1 1/2” Circle and for several small die cut hearts.
  • Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper – Cut 5 1/8” x 3 7/8”, plus a piece cut 6” x 2 1/2” (envelope)
  • Basis White Cardstock – Cut 5 1/2” x 4”,  Cut 3 3/4” x 3 3/4” for die cut, scrap for 1 1/4” circle
  • Blushing Bride Cardstock – scrap for several small hearts
  • Ink: Real Red, Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Stampin’ Blends: Real Red, Ivory, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake
  • 3/8” White Glittered Organdy Ribbon
  • Adhesive: Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Glue Dots, Dimensionals
  • Tools: Paper Trimmer, Paper Snips, Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine

I have also decided that my envelopes this year should not go into the mail “naked!”, so I adhered a matching piece of Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper to the flap of my envelope.  Everyone likes to see pretty things in the mail.

And don’t forget to add something to the inside too!

Happy Stamping!
