Pool Party Valentines

My first run through the Spring catalog was not exactly inspiring.  I’m not sure what I was looking for or expecting, but whatever it was I didn’t see it.  All my other demo friends were excited as can be and I was just kinda meh.

But of course I placed a pre-order and hoped for the best.  The box arrived and I opened it and something happened.  The things in the box were so much better than their pictures!!  I take it all back!!!  I am an Official Spring Catalog Fan.  And as such, I have been busy creating:

Maui Stamper More Amore Valentine

  • Delightful Dozen stamp set (annual catalog)
  • Pool Party card stock
  • Primrose Pink Core’dinations card stock (Spring catalog)
  • More Amore DSP (Spring catalog)
  • Primrose Pink FFIP
  • Finishing Touches Edgelit
  • Hearts Collection Framelits
  • Needlepoint Border TIEF (Spring catalog)
  • Big Shot (well, duh!)
  • Stampin’ Sanding System

Those little peek-a-boo hearts are easy to achieve – just place a couple of Heart Framelits on your card front and run it through the Big Shot.  Cut a piece of DSP – I used More Amore from the Spring Catalog – to 4 x 5 1/4 inches – just a hair smaller than your card front.  Adhere it to the inside of the card and the DSP shows through the openings.  Even better, you’ve got the reverse of the DSP as relief on the inside of the card.

The DSP also covers up the line where that strip of Embossed and trimmed Core’dinations is attached to the front of the card on the inside edge.  I trimmed off 3/8 inch from the front of the card to make space for that trimmed piece.

We made these last week at Hostess Club.  There’s a sweet little favor that matches, so tune in later this week to see it.  There’s also a very special event coming soon in my family, and I’ll have some fun things to share from that too.  I can’t wait to show you!!
