Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, the theme is “Love Is In The Air.” We hope you will be inspired by the creations the Pals are sharing with you! You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Happy Valentine’s Day, and without a douvt, love is in the air.

I thought it would be fun to use the Bright Skies Bundle to sprinkle some love. It’s snowing here in New Jersey as I’m writing this post, and it’s beautiful to watch. What comes to mind is this is a part of nature’s love that gives us the pretty flowers and blooming trees in the Spring!

So, let’s make a card!

  • As you can see, my die cutting machine was movin’ and shakin’. The die cutting was quick. I lined up the dies using small scraps of cardstock. Most were done in one sweep.
  • I cut the Coastal Cabana cardstock card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, and scored it at 4 1/4″ on the long side.
  • The Basic White die cut large cloud is my first “layer”. I attached it to the center of the card front.
  • The patterned paper die cut cloud was next, followed by the Daffodil Delight sun.
  • I stamped the sentiment with Berry Burst ink onto a small die cut white cloud, and attached it with Dimensionals.
  • The Berry Burst stamped and die cut heart (from the Hooray For Surprises Bundle) is also attached with Dimensionals.
  • The little flowers, rain drops, and hearts are all attached with liquid glue.
  • I used a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a little sparkle.

I stamped the inside of the card with a sentiment from the Irresistible Blooms stamp set, and added a patterned paper strip to the writing layer, along with a die cut flower.

My “happy” color inspiration came from my Color Coach. You can download and print a copy of the current Color Coach here.

So, die cut a few clouds, a bright sun, a few raindrops and hearts, add a little sparkle, and sprinkle love to someone special.

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. Then, please mark your calendars for our blog hop next month. Our theme will be “It’s All About The Kids.”

Until then, have fun in your craft space.
