Hopping With Lifetime of Love And Some of the Artisans!

I am SO EXCITED!  This all still feels like a dream & I seriously can't believe I am about to say this.  But ... 

My first projects that I designed for this Artisan year are HERE! 💕  Want to hop along with us today and see what we all made?!  Yay!  Myself and four other Artisans have all designed projects using the Lifetime of Love Bundle and want to share them with you!  We each have our own style and there are SO many possibilities with these products!  

So without further ado ... here are my projects! (Then keep reading to be linked to my other fabulous Artisans to see what they made! I promise ... it is worth your time!  They are all amazing! 😍 )


Colors Pool Party, Bubble Bath, Parakeet Party, Whisper White
Inks: Pool Party, Bubble Bath, Parakeet Party, VersaMark, Basic Black Marker
Cardstock/Papers: Basic White, Bubble Bath, Basic Black, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, Gold Foil Sheets
Stamps: Lifetime of Love
Tools:  Lifetime of Love Dies, Perennial Postage Dies, Heat Tool, Water Painter, Blending Brush, Painted Texture Embossing Folder, Exposed Brick Embossing Folder
Accessories: Pool Party 3/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Iridescent Foil Gems,  Basic Embossing Poweder, Metallics Embossing Powder, Baker's Twine Essentials Pack

It was really fun to use this bundle with different colors that you see it used with in Stampin' Up!'s Mini Catalog.  The Lifetime of Love Bundle is part of the Forever Love Suite, and is more of a muted color palette: Moody Mauve, Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock, & Very Vanilla.   I made these projects with a softer & brighter color palette: Bubble Bath, Pool Party, Parakeet Party & Whisper White.

This card was so much fun to make!  I will share a few details below: 


I kept this card pretty clean with some fun texturing.  I really love a bright white card. 💖
  • Die-cut frame from Basic White cardstock.  ***Tip: Add Adhesive Sheets to the back of the cardstock before die-cutting.  This then turns the cardstock into a sticker so it will be so easy to adhere to paper.  Do not remove adhesive sheet backing until ready to adhere.
  • Blend ink and splatter the middle of the card where the frame will be adhered to. ***Tip: lay out the frame onto the cardstock, without adhering it, to use as a stencil.  Make a few marks with a pencil to mark inside of frame.  Use marks as a guide on where to blend ink.
  • Emboss the Basic White cardstock with the Exposed Brick Embossing Folder. 
  • Adhere the frame over the blended ink.
  • Emboss the floral image onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper with Gold Embossing Powder.
  • Watercolor the flower with Bubble Bath & Parakeet Party ink for a soft look.  Set aside to dry.  Then die-cut.
  • Emboss the greeting with White Embossing Powder onto Basic Black cardstock.  Use scissors to cut out the greeting.
  • Die cut the smallest die from the Perennial Postage Dies from Gold Foil.  Cut in half, and adhere to the bottom of the greeting.  
  • Layer it all together with the Pool Party ribbon!
  • Add the FABULOUS Iridescent Foil Gems scattered around the focal point.



This next card is pretty feminine and makes me smile!  (Yes...I LOVE PINK!)  It uses my fave colors: pink & Coastal Cabana! 😍


  • Emboss the pink stripe paper with the Painted Texture Embossing Folder. Distress edges with the edge of a pair of scissors and curl a few corners with a bone folder. Adhere to card front.
  • Die-cut two wreaths from Coastal Cabana cardstock.  ***Tip: Add Adhesive Sheets to the back of the cardstock before die-cutting.  This then turns the cardstock into a sticker so it will be so easy to adhere to paper.  Adhere to center of stripe paper.
  • Emboss the the three floral images onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  
  • Watercolor the flowers with Bubble Bath & Parakeet Party.  Color in the center of the floral images with Daffodil Delight Marker. Die-cut the flowers.
  • Die-cut 2 of the leaf dies from Vellum cardstock.
  • Use Basic Black marker to ink up just the "love & happiness" part of the sentiment.  Stamp onto a strip of Basic White cardstock.  Cut at a slant. 
  • Layer all the pieces and adhere to the wreath!
  • Tie a bow from the white twine and adhere.  
  • Add the FABULOUS Iridescent Foil Gems scattered around the focal card.


These cards were a lot of fun to make!  I hope you enjoyed seeing them and they inspire you in some way!  Now it's time to go check out the other Artisan Designers!

A Little Birthday Love ...

I am a big fan of wrapping a birthday gift in a fun & special way.  However ... I will preface it by saying it is NEVER a necessity.  😁...
