Hey Sweetheart! Cards Using Sweethearts Patterned Paper


The Sweethearts 6×6 Patterned Paper is a perfect pairing with any love themed stamps for creating fabulous Valentine's Day Cards. Here's some inspiration pairing this great paper pack with the We Go Together Stamp Set and Dies.


Just a pop of paper can make that just right touch! I added a small strip to add color to this sweet donut motif. How cute is that Heartthrob Die?

Erika created a set of small square valentines with the various pairings in the We Go Together Stamp Set. She used the papers to create perfect backgrounds, accents and little flags. These have my heart!

I donut know if this card would be as great without this pop of red xoxo print! Patterned paper as a background is always a great choice and helps create a fun frame on this card.

Kristie Goulet

How sweet is this perfect pair? Milk, cookies and a pop of pink scallop paper is simply just right! This paper accent anchors the main image and sentiment and breaks up the white card base.

With 8 patterns and prints to mix and match in each pack and a ready-to-go color combo, using patterned papers like Sweethearts is a great way to create batches of too cute Valentines. Don't forget our UR Sweet 12×12 Paper also coordinates for treat bags and scrapbooking!

Rainbow Ink Blending for Valentine’s Day Cards


I love a rainbow ink blended background and thought it would be fun for a Valentine's Day Card! See how to create this card in this Youtube Video!

After running one ink blended background piece through the Big Shot, you end up with pieces for two cards! The pieces that cut out from the die can be pieced onto a card layer for a fun look. Die cut the Fold-n-Cut Coverplate from White Cardstock as well, cover in glitter and inlay back into the design. The card on the left uses Sparkling Sugar Sparkles Glitter and the card on the right uses Sweetheart Sparkles Glitter.

The Sweet Nothings Sentiment Stamp Set also has options in foil! Be sure to check out both options, which is your favorite?

Having Fun with the Fold-n-Cut Hearts Cover Plate Die!


The Fold-n-Cut Hearts Cover Plate Die has been an instant fan favorite! If you've already grabbed one for yourself, you'll love this look at the various ways our design team used it on their cards.

Ilina Crouse

Simple white on white is always a cover plate winner! Using the Fold-n-Cut Hearts as the background for this sweet card adds texture and of course, hearts! It's showing the love for the milk and cookie pairing.

Kristie Goulet

Color blocking is such a gorgeous and modern look. Kristie added all the layers here to really give dimension to her card. A bit of direct-to-paper inking gave her a Rockin' Red Background and It's a Girl Die cut pop! She highlighted a few of the hearts with Sweethearts Sprinkles to add that bling!

Ilina Crouse

Who doesn't love a two-for? Ilina did some simple and easy ink swiping over her cardstock and then made one card with the die cut layer and one with it's negative pieces. They both look super cute…how could you pick a favorite?

Kristie Goulet

Grab that embossing sandwich for your cutting machine and just add a subtile background instead. This allows you more versatility from your die and it an elegant, quilted look.

Cards to Make Your Heart Melt with the Give Me Some Sugar Bundle!


The January Collection, Cutest V'day Ever, features the Give Me Some Sugar Bundle. Let's take a look at how our Card Making Team used this sa-weet! bundle to create a variety cards.

Arsenia Wolf

Arsenia created this card and highlighted the strawberry stamp in the Give Me Some Sugar Stamp Set. She created a focal point on her card with the Heartthrob Die and then added all her pieces in the center layered up just right. I love how she nested in the stamped heart gumballs into the mix!

How about tags? The Party Tag Dies is a versatile set with a shaker tag option and these stamped images and patterned paper work perfectly for cute Valentine tags!

This card focuses on the gumball machine stamp and die. This one has two stamps for filling in with heart gumballs and Arsenia selective inked her stamps to incorporate 4 colors. She used the WOW! Sweetheart Sparkles to make a strip of glitter paper, too, which is a great accent!

The ice cream cone and scoops are just too cute! Both Lisa and Arsenia used the scallop pattern on their ice cream cards and the same sentiment but with different layouts and accents. Just think of all the colors you could use for this ice cream stamp!

Too Sweet! Guest Andrea Lake’s Scrapbook Spread with the UR Sweet Patterned Paper


The Cutest V'day Ever Collection needed to find its way onto scrapbook pages so we created the UR Sweet 12×12 Patterned Paper to help bring that to life! We invited the talented scrapper, Andrea Lake from Andrea Lake Creates, to unleash her creativity with these goodies!

Andrea did a gorgeous two-page spread featuring layers of the UR Sweet Paper. She fussy cut some of the doilies from the sheet of doily paper and tucked them around her layers and photos. She also fussy cut hearts from one of the paper patterns and adorned the bottom of her spread with little folded hearts- how cute?!?

Using the Give Me Some Sugar Stamps and Dies, Andrea made a shaker gumball machine filled with Rome Sequins and created her own shakable ephemera element. Using the direct-to-paper method, Andrea inked letters she cut from textured cardstock to add the LOVE and embellished them with a white gel pen.

Stamped and foiled sentiments with the Sweet Nothings Hot Foil Plates and Dies add that perfect touch. She also used the Party Tag Dies to add some paper flags and a journaling tag to tuck into the spread. There are so many little details in here! I know this will inspire you for your next spread you create for you and your sweethearts!

Five Ways to Use the Hearts Aflutter Bundle and Hot Foil Plate!


CPD Card Designer, Amanda Fitterer used the Hearts Aflutter Bundle to make a super batch of cards by mixing and matching products as well as incorporating various techniques. Let's take a look at how she took these products and made them shine!

Stamp and Stencil

The Hearts Aflutter Layered Stencils were designed so you could ink blend your color right over your stamped image to bring it to life!

Use the Die to Create a Window Card

The Hearts Aflutter Dies not only give you the ability to die cut and pop your main stamped image, but also work perfectly to create a window card. The stamped images were colored in and the white gel pen highlights add such fun detail to these stamps!

Go Black and White and POP Some Color

Go black and white with a large stamped image for a bold statement! Try a simple foiled sentiment with ink blended die cut heart in bold red-violet inks layered that over the black and white image. This is a show-stopper!

Just Foil It!

The Hearts Aflutter Hot Foil Plate creates a stunning focal point for a card. Amanda added a splatter of metallic paint to her foiled image and card background piece to add a lot of great texture.

Skip the Stamp

Try just using the Hearts Aflutter Layered Stencils without the stamp. This gives a soft, watercolored feeling to the image. Gold Metallic Inks were used to add pops of shimmer to the card. Gorgeous!
