Love Sparkles- All Occasion Card Set

Hello there stampers!  I'm a little late with this post as the day it went live on the Stampin' UP! blog- was also an Artisan Design Team blog hop day.  I've been meaning to share this with you ever since!
This was my corporate blog post:
All Occasion Card Set

Hello there!  Do you have a favorite item that you like to give?  For me- one of my favorite things to gift is a set of all occasion handmade greeting cards.  For many, cards are a way to celebrate specific occasions or a way to express emotions.  No matter what the reason for sending a card is- one thing is for sure.  Cards are always sure to brighten someone’s day!

This beautiful set consists of 4 different cards/envelopes and an adorable little window box to hold them.   To create this set I used the Love Sparkles (item #143183) stamp set, Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (item # 131527) and silver DSP from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (item # 138435).  Various other elements such as Silver Metallic Thread (item # 138402), Rhinestone Basic Jewels (item #119246), 5/8” Silver Satin Ribbon (item # 134548) and Silver Sequin Trim (item # 138399) were used to embellish the cards.  

The first card is a Thank You card.  The flower was created using the Big Shot (item # 143263) and Succulent Framelits Dies (item # 142757). Not only are the Succulent Framelits Dies (item # 142757) used to create succulents but they also make pretty flowers!  This Daffodil Delight Card Stock (item #119683) flower is the perfect addition to this card.  It adds a subtle yet pretty touch to this soft color scheme.

Next up is a gorgeous love note.  This sweet card features the Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (item # 142761) and a Real Red Card Stock (item # 102482) heart cut from the Sunshine Wishes Dies (item #141489).  The Love banner was created by stamping the Love sentiment in Real Red ink (item # 126949) onto a Pink Pirouette Card Stock (item # 111351) banner. A tiny little white bow from the Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack (item # 142737) adorns the right side of the heart.

The last two cards are pretty much dual purpose.  Since they don’t specifically refer to any occasion they can either be for a birthday, congratulations or just because.   The first one features an adorable balloon bouquet created with the Balloon Bouquet Punch (item #140609) and the silver DSP from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (item #138435).  A simple Pool Party Card Stock (item # 122924) banner stamped with Island Indigo ink (item #126986) adds the perfect finishing touch!

Last but not least, this card says “it’s your day to sparkle” (another dual purpose card).  My favorite element on this card is the little banner created using the Confetti Stars Punch (item # 135861).  So fun!

This picture shows how the completed set looks all boxed up and ready to go!


Thanks for joining me!  I hope you have enjoyed my project and are inspired to create a set of all occasion cards for yourself or to gift!

*****Since this post went live- I have received several requests for a tutorial on how to create the box.  I apologize in advance as I'm not very tech savvy and therefore don't know how to add a .PDF file here however if you send me an email and ask for the box tutorial- I will attach it in an email.*****
