I have been having so much fun designing different handmade Valentine Cards this year using some of the newer stamp sets I’ve purchased through Stampin’ Up. Every year, from July through March, Stampin’ Up has what is called a Sale-A-Bration. This is the time of year when you can earn free products. It is their biggest sales event of the year, allowing you to earn free products three different ways.
- When you shop – earn one free product for every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping). This is a great way to get products you’ve been wanting, plus earn more for free at the same time!
- Join as a demonstrator – It’s a perfect time to join Stampin’ Up! as a new demonstrator! Choose one of the following limited-timeSale-A-Bration offers when you join between January 6 and March 31, 2015:
- Option #1: Receive a FREE Simply Created Project Kit from the Occasions catalog with your Starter Kit
- Option #2: Receive 2 FREE Sale-A-Bration items of your choice with your Starter Kit
- Host a Stampin’ Up! Party!

So, now on to the Valentine’s Day Cards.
All but one of the cards below were made using the You Plus Me stamp set from the Stampin’ Up Occasions Catalog. However, each one is unique depending on the card stock I used, as well as the elements and embellishments. Below each card is the recipe with links to items used.

Also used, were Real Red Card Stock, Real Red Stampin Pad, Silver Glimmer Paper, 2″ Circle Punch, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, Happy Heart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (Occasions Catalog), Mini Treat Bag Thinlits (Occasions Catalog), Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper (Occasions Catalog), and the Bow Builder Punch (Occasions Catalog)
