Stampin' Up! Sweet Conversations ~ SNEAK PEEK!


I had so much fun creating this card from the catalog!  Actually, this is a Sneak Peek of products from the upcoming 2022 January-June Mini Catalog.  The card I was CASE'ing  is from the current 2021 July-December Mini Catalog, p. 50.
 (CASE = Copy And Share Everything) 

Card Base ~ Basic White Thick Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper ~ 4-1/4" x 5-1/2"
Layer 2 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 3-1/2" x 5"
Layer 3 ~ Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper ~ 2-1/2" x 3-1/2"
Highland Heather Cardstock ~ 3" x 3"
scraps of Basic White Cardstock

  • OPTIONAL: I used a die from Rectangle Stitched Dies to cut out the center of Layer 1 to use on another project.  (I didn't want to waste DSP)
  • Use a Water Painter with Real Red, Highland Heather and Blushing Bride inks to create a splatter background on Layer 2.
  • Die cut a Post It Note mask with one of the smaller heart dies from Sweet Hearts Dies.  Use it to cover up the words in one of the large heart stamps while inking the stamp with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Remove the mask before stamping on a scrap of Basic White CS
  • Stamp the two large heart stamps on scraps of Basic White CS with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  • Use the solid heart image to fill in the heart outlines you just stamped.  Fill the empty heart outline with Real Red ink and use Blushing Bride to fill the other two.  
  • Stamp the 'Happy to...' sentiment with Highland Heather ink on a scrap of Basic White Cardstock.  Use one of the smaller solid hearts & Blushing Bride ink to stamp a heart behind the words.
  • Use the coordinating dies to cut out the three hearts and a Highland Heather envelope.
  • Trim around the 'Happy to...' sentiment with a Paper Trimmer or Paper Snips.
  • Assemble the envelope, leaving the top flap open. Use a small amount of adhesive to attach the 'Happy to...' sentiment inside/on the envelope, as shown. 
  • Adhere Layer 1 to the Card Base.  Then, Layer 2 on Layer 1 at an angle.
  • Make a tiny pencil mark in the center of Layer 3 about half an inch from the bottom.  Cut from the bottom corners to the pencil mark, creating a banner.
  • Attach approximately 12" of ribbon behind the banner, as shown.
  • Place Stampin' Dimensionals behind the banner, then attach it to Layer 2.
  • Use Dimensionals to attach the the large hearts to the banner.
  • Put a small amount of Liquid Glue at bottom of the envelope, and a Dimensional at the top before attaching it to the banner.

Stamp the inside sentiment and 'XOXO' with Real Red ink. 

TADA!  I hope you like this card and have as much fun making it as I did!  If you make any adjustments, I would love to see them!  (You can share it with me on my Facebook Page)

Here's the video tutorial.
