Bon Voyage Blog Hop


Welcome to Port of Call #7 on Stampin' Addicts 2009 Bon Voyage Blog Hop!

Nestled snugly between Ports of Call #6 (Connie's Bella Blossom) and #8 (Barbara's Blooming with Love), here we explore Stampin' Up!'s hidden versatility of Happy Heart Day
.

One announcement before disembarking: the tour links are only active through 11:59 pm Tuesday June 16; after that, many hostesses will post more details on projects you see today. Bookmark your favorite stops now--on return visits, you'll bypass customs & immigration and go straight to the fun!

I want to try to show you that even though this looks like a Valentine's Day set, it can be so much more. I will be sharing directions of how to create all of the fancy folds you will see today later in the week. So stay tuned.


I am going to start with a Valentine. This cute little card is made using a "Triangle Trifold". It looks sort of complicated but it actually isn't.

Stamps: Happy Heart Day (Last Chance)
Paper: Candy Lane Designer Series Paper (Last Chance), Very Vanilla Cardstock, Pink Pirouette Cardstock (Last Chance), Chocolate Chip Cardstock, Riding Hood Red Card Stock (Last Chance)
Ink: Riding Hood Red Classic Ink (Last Chance), Pink Pirouette Classic Ink (Last Chance), Sahara Sand Classic Ink, Going Gray Stampin' Write Marker, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker
Accessories: Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon
Tools Used: Blender Pen


This set includes a great little Thank You that works great with the other images in set to make something for that special someone. This card fold flat for mailing but can stand up on its own for display.
