January 2023 - Stamping Sunday Blog Hop

Hello Stamping Friends! Today, I’m super-excited to share the January 2023 Stamping Sunday Blog Hop. This hop is hosted by Sara Levin and we share on the second Sunday of every month. 

Our theme for the month is “Love Is...” where we are each sharing projects centered around a love theme. Welcome, I’m so happy you are here today! 
Today, I am sharing two cards with my favorite stamp set “of the moment” from the Stampin’ Up! January - April Mini Catalog. If you are a pet lover like me or just really like adorable images, the Love Cats stamp set is a must-have! I also paired this little kitty with the Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper to create a super-cute Valentine’s Day card. 

*I’ve listed all of the measurements and details for my projects below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this post

Measurements and Details:
  • Sweet Sorbet Cardstock: 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2” 
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 4” x 5-1/4” 
  • Basic White Cardstock: 3-7/8” x 5-1/8”, stamp sentiment in bottom right corner with Sweet Sorbet ink

Here is a peek inside the card! I simply added another kitty image from the set along with a coordinating sentiment stamped in Sweet Sorbet ink. I colored the heart with Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends. 
I had some scraps leftover from my card for the hop and decided to create a second project with another image in the Love Cats stamp set. That bitty blinged-out collar just makes me happy! I used a lot of the same elements from the first card with the addition of: 
  • 2022-2024 In Color Designer Series Paper Assortment #159253
