Hearts a Flutter for Valentine card and ribbon wreath

Welcome to the Stylin' Stampin' Squad blog hop. You may have just popped in, or come from Kim's blog. There's a complete list at the bottom of everyone involved in the blog hop so you can be sure to visit everyone! We're featuring Spring Catalog products. I chose to use the Hearts a Flutter stamp set with coordinating framelits of the same name.
I started with a Very Vanilla card and added a Pool Party oval scallop with a More Amore Specialty dsp oval on top of that. Both were diecut using the Oval Collection Framelits. The banner use a sentiment from Seasonal Sayings, a carryover from the Holiday Catalog, and two of the large rhinestone jewels. I finished the card with a knot of satin Pool Party ribbon (a Sale-a-Bration offering you may select for free with a $50 purchase starting January 22), and a couple of stamped and die-cut hearts that are adhered with dimensionals.

I made a ribbon wreath using an 10-inch wire form and 7-8" lengths of retired ribbon knotted onto the frame in current colors - Rose Red, Bashful Blue, Tempting Turquoise and Real Red - and thought the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and framelits would make a great banner! You can see a couple of clear vintage buttons on the banner, as well as a silver basics button (I love those!). The hearts and banners are held together with white baker's twine.
Here's one last look at the card. My club members are making it this month. The wreath and card will look great in my studio. My bestie, Kim, came over for a few hours and helped me take down the Christmas decorations, clean, and put up some Valentine decorations today. Now it's time for you to travel on to the next blog, Justin over at JK Cards. Have fun and enjoy your day!

I love the wreath! What an awesome job! And that card, I keep looking at it. I wasn't going to get that Love phrase but now.... ugh I might need it. LOL

Pat T. said...

Wow - what a great job on the wreath. Love the card too! Thank you for sharing!

Tonya said...

The wreath is fantastic! I think I might have some of the retired ribbon around to give it a try too. I love the card and even though I don't have the stamp I might just have to case the layout. Thanks for sharing!

Woh fabulous creations. I have to say that at first I didn't like the Amore papers that much but now I changed my mind after seeing your card. :)

Hugs, Rosalien

Both of your projects are awesome! I think I may be casing the card. The wreath I turned out great.
