Stampin' Up! Sending Love Non-traditional Valentine!

Happy Friday the 13th!

You guys voted for me to redo the Hot Mess card on Youtube!  Here it is!  I definitely love how this version turned out, but it was still a bit of work!

I used the Sending Love Bundle from the 2017 Occasions Catalog from Stampin' Up! Click here to request a copy! 

If you guys know anything about me, it's that I love to throw in some non-traditional takes on popular holiday colors!  Today, I'm throwing caution to the wind and using a rainbow of colors to create a striking card...that isn't the traditional red and white for Valentine's Day!

Let me tell you that this card takes a little bit of work!  I started by tracing the largest circle from the Layering Circle Framelits on the center of a Basic Black layer.

I lined up the 2 heart dies from the Love Notes framelits and secured them with washi. I ran them through the Big Shot until I had all of the circles cut.

I added all of my favorite bright colors behind the hearts and adhered the layer on top with our Foam Strips.  
I added white ribbon from the Sending Love Ribbon Combo.  I heat embossed the sentiment onto a piece of Basic Black and punched using the 2" circle punch

Guess what?!?  You can use the link below to print out the coordinating tutorial which includes a picture, supply list, dimensions and instructions!  You can also watch the video of me making this card down below or over at Youtube!

Product List


  1. Love this card. I personally would like to see cards with the tasty truck stamp set. I'm think of getting it as my free stamp next time i order but I want to see what it looks like on a card first.

    1. Hi Kathryn! I will do Sending Love next week, but I have an idea for a truck valentine :)

  2. I enjoy your cards and videos. But your information on becoming a stampin up demostrator is incorrect. The most you can earn as a demostrator, as I understand from another demostrator is 25%. Please let me know if I am incorrect.

    1. Hi Carol,

      Actually, my information is correct. Once you promote further up in the company, your percentage raises. Someone who is Platinum or Platinum Elite can earn 37%! Many demonstrators are hobby and do not promote that far and wouldn't know about the raise in percentages!


I love to read your comments and feedback! Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me :)
