Catching Butterflies, Sweet Conversations, Valentines

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I have one last Valentine card to share today….because it’s Valentine’s Day!  I have more card ideas rolling around in my head, but not enough time in my day to get them all out and onto card, so I’m going to have to save them for next year.


This card is a great way to use use scraps of your Designer Series Paper.  You just need 6 strips cur 3 7/8″ x 3/4″ of any coordinating designs.  I used the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper.  One of the great things about Stampin’ Up!’s papers is that everything is color coordinated!  It takes the guesswork out making card making easy!


I stamped my “balloons” using the Sweet Conversations Stamp Set and die cut them using the Sweet Hearts Dies.  But did you know that you can die cut hearts right from the Designer Series Paper?  Yes, the dies fit right on the hearts in the top left paper!  I also used the new Gingham Embossing Folder for the center panel.


To make the “balloons”, I adhered a piece of White Twine to the backside of each heart with a glue dot before I adhered the hearts using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I gathered the twine strings and tied them together with a piece of Real Red Ribbon.  So the balloons wouldn’t float away, I put a glue dot behind the bow to adhere them to the card front.


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

  • Sweet Conversations Bundle (Sweet Conversations Stamp Set and Sweet Hearts Dies
  • Real Red Cardstock – Cut 4 1/4″ x 11″; Score and fold at 5 1/2″, plus cut 2 pieces 1″ x 5 1/4″ for scalloped edges

  • Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper – Cut 6 pieces 3 7/8″ x 3/4″ – one each of various designs,  plus one piece cut 1/4″ x 4″ (inside)
