Stamping Inkspirations - February 2021 Blog Hop

Hello and Happy Saturday to you! I am super excited to share a project with you today as part of the Stamping Inspirations Blog Hop! We are a group of stampers from all over the world who enjoy sharing our love of Stampin’ Up!® products. 

You may have arrived here from Susan Simpson’s blog or you may be starting the blog hop here. Welcome! My name is Anne Marie Hile and I live in Texas in the United States. I’m so happy you stopped by today! 
Our theme for the blog hop is: Love is in the Air! I decided to create an anniversary card for this challenge, as I always seem to need them. The Always in My Heart stamp set and coordinating Floral Heart Dies were the perfect combination for this card to celebrate another year of togetherness. 

All of the measurements for my project are listed below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this blog post.
Color Combo:
I decided to use a soft color combo along with the beautiful Love you Always Specialty DSP and Foil Sheets. The foil accents add so much beautiful detail and really add an elegant touch to the card. 

The Floral Heart Dies have all kinds of little bits and pieces to layer together, which I really like. The little flowers and leaves can be used with or without the heart which makes them even more versatile. I especially love that curvy banner for the sentiment. I also added some soft texture to the background and the die cut heart for a little more detail. I really like how the card came out and I hope you do, too. 
Card Measurements & Details: 
  • Sahara Sand Card Base: 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2” 
  • Pear Pizzazz Cardstock: 4” x 5-1/4” 
  • Blushing Bride Cardstock: 3-7/8” x 5-1/8”, embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder
  • Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper (Sahara Sand): die cut a 3” x 4-1/2” rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies
  • Love You Always Foil Sheets (Sahara Sand): die cut the floral heart image 
  • Love You Always Foil Sheets (Blushing Bride): die cut trio detailed floral 
  • Blushing Bride Cardstock: die cut three of the solid floral images to layer with the detailed flowers
  • Pear Pizzazz Cardstock: die cut two sets of the leaves
  • So Saffron Cardstock: die cut three sets of the leaves, accent with Wink of Stella 
  • Soft Sea Foam Cardstock: die cut the heart image, emboss using Subtle 3D Embossing Folder
  • Basic White Cardstock: die cut the banner image and stamp the sentiment
  • Linen Thread and Champagne Rhinestones
  • Basic White Cardstock (inside card): 4” x 5-1/4” 
  • Love You Always Foil Sheets (Sahara Sand, inside card): 3/4” x 5-1/4” 
Finally a peek inside the card. I used another small strip of the DSP along with a coordinating sentiment and some stamped hearts.
