CASEing Coast to Coast: A Boho Indigo Valentine

Welcome to the first CASEing Coast to Coast of 2021. Each month, Karen Hallam, in CA and I, in PA have been taking turns CASEing (copy and selectively edit) each other’s projects.  To change it up a little, this year we’ll be adding a theme to each month’s project.  Our theme today is Valentine’s Day…

Stampin Up Slimline Meant To Be Valentine Card Idea -Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

I went the non-traditional route on my slimline Valentine card.  When I was looking through my patterned papers, nothing very Valentine-y caught my attention.  So I turned to my favorite color and one of my favorite Designer Series Paper collections, Boho Indigo.  This paper is part of the Boho Indigo Product Medley.  However, I just purchased the refill kit, as I was really only interested in the paper and embellishments.

The Very Vanilla card base measures 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ with the Misty Moonlight panel measuring 8 3/8′ x 3 3/8″.  The top Very Vanilla panel measures 8 1/4″ x 3 1/4″.  I cut 4 strips of DSP to 1/4″ and 2 strips of Misty Moonlight card stock to 1/8″ to create the center background.  The DSP is 6″ x 6″ so it was necessary to have a seam in the center but the middle heart covered it.

Using various heart dies from the Stitched Be Mine dies, I cut 2 patterned hearts from the DSP.  I then cut 12 of the scalloped frame hearts from Misty Moonlight card stock.  I layered 4 of these together to create each scalloped heart for some dimension.  The center heart is stamped with a sentiment from the Meant to Be stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink.  Lastly, for some added detail, I added some tiny pearls to the flower centers.  I’m pretty sure these are retired SU pearls.  I’m actually on the hunt for more of this size.

I used the Forever and Always stamp set for the inside sentiment.  I love this set and can’t wait to use it on an entire card.  A little DSP added to each side is a simple yet pretty way to add some interest.

I purchased a box of cream colored and white resume envelopes from an office supply store for my slimline cards.  These envelopes are slightly bigger than I need for this size card but they have a nice quality feel and texture. So I’m ok with a little wiggle room!

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects featuring “Sale-A-Bration Products.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments. We love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

For today’s project, I used my current favorite bundle from the January-June 2021 catalog…Sweet Strawberry.  This stamp set and coordinating punch are aptly named as they create just the “sweetest” cards and 3D projects.  I know I’ll be using this bundle well beyond the catalog period!

I used another new product for the coordinating gift box…the Love You Always Treat Boxes.  These boxes are such a generous size, so you could fit many different treats or gifts in them and they’re super sturdy.  The embellishing possibilities are endless!

I frequently want to give a little something to friends, neighbors and co-workers.  This box will now be my go-to for this.

A Year of Wreaths

Like most, I’m putting 2020 behind and looking forward to a brighter new year.  Since I’ve been on Christmas break, I’ve been cleaning, organizing and even creating.  It feels so good to be able to spend some uninterrupted time crafting.  Since our Christmas was limited to playing games with our grown children and watching our grandson open his gifts via Zoom, crafting has been a great distraction from this anti-climatic holiday. One of the projects I’ve been working on is a new 2021 desk calendar.  Although I make these each year, I stepped it up some this year and I’m excited to share them.

Seasonal Wreaths Calendar Card -Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

 I started by creating 4 seasonal interchangeable wreaths using a lot of different stamps and dies.  I loved going through my collection and finding just what I needed for each.  Then I added 3 more holiday wreaths to the collection.  Each wreath attaches easily with magnets, so there’s no wear or tear on the calendar.  

Here are the holiday add-on wreaths…

I’ve gifted a few of these calendars to my neighbors and co-workers.  I thought they made a pretty and useful gift to start the new year.  These can be used year after year simply by adding a new calendar.

I’d love to share these calendars with you.  Here’s how….

  • Make a purchase of $75.00 or more (before tax & shipping) from my online store and I’ll send you a calendar and 4 seasonal wreaths. 
  • Additionally, after qualifying for the free calendar and 4 seasonal wreaths, you can purchase the 3 add-on holiday wreaths (Valentine’s, Halloween & Christmas) for $10.00 .  Payments can be made via PayPal “send to a friend” option.  My PayPal address is romulhern@gmail.com. Shipping to US only.
