Two Cool You Are Loved Regional Cards

I attended the Stampin' Up! Regional in Louisville last Saturday and we had two super cute make & takes using the You Are Loved set from the Holiday Mini. 

You are loved 123779L
I know, I know…talking about Valentine's Day already seems a bit premature, but our projects were a great example of how this set can be used for many occasions!  Take a look…

L - sweet friend m&t    L - sweet friend close

This pretty, "Sweet Friend" card could be used at any time as a "Thinking of You" card. 

How-To Tips

  • Use the Distressing Essentials Kit for the background of the main piece.  Ink up the flat rubber stamp with the Tea Stain ink, then rub onto the card stock to "antique" it.
  • Use the Good Grid stamp with More Mustard ink, but remember to "stamp off" once before you apply it to your background.  (I didn't and it was a bit overpowering).
  • Color the rubber stamp image with Markers before stamping, then be sure to stamp a second time on the corner of your envelope!
  • Add some 1/8" holes with the Crop-a-Dile, and snip each one along the edge to simulate a spiral-bound notebook page.
  • Add a Vintage Trinkets safety pin tied with a scrap of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding.

This one was my favorite!  Again, it could be used as a Valentine, or simply a thoughtful card to a friend for no reason at all.  See how versatile the images are?!  I LOVE it!

        1. I love the first card. It’s the type of card I love to create and CASE. I am getting ready to send in an order and I think I’ll be adding the “You Are Loved” set, the Grid stamp and the distressing kit to my order. Very fun and versatile. I’m so sad I couldn’t go with you girls but seeing my son for the last time for 7 months is all I can think about right now. I can’t wait to hear all about what you girls got to see and do, though!
