Welcome to another edition of Throwback Thursday—a trip back in time! For each throwback, we’ll be spotlighting fantastic cards and projects using products from previous releases. The new stuff is always SO fun, but think about all of those great products you’ve collected and set aside. They are STILL AWESOME! And we want to inspire you with fantastic inspiration from our creative archives.
Recently we released two fantastic Valentine-themed collections—Love You More and Hey Bestie, but today we’d like to take a look back at a collection that made its appearance last year. You might remember some pretty spectacular products from our You Are Loved collection. Below you’ll find four inspiring cards created with goodies from this lovey-dovey release!
First off is this stunning floral card by Yoonsun Hur:
With the help of the So Loved stamp set from last year’s You Are Loved release, Yoonsun created this beauty. She used the stamps from the set along with nine different dye inks to create this design. You can see Yoonsun’s original post HERE where she also shares a clean and simple card using the same set.
Next, let’s throw it back to this fun design by Lisa Addesa:
The Ornate Love stamp set and coordinating dies helped Lisa pull together this pretty design. The large heart die is actually designed to cut out the large heart stamp in the set, but it works well on its own as well. Lisa says that she just LOVED coloring in the letters with lots of different markers. She shared this card HERE on her blog.
And let’s not forget this shiny beauty designed by Misty Elam:
Misty had a blast using Deco Foil Transfer Gel and foil with the Reverse Hearts stencil from the You Are Loved release. The sheen on this card has me going GAGA! You can see Misty’s original blog post HERE (which includes two more cards), and she shares a how-to on YouTube HERE.
And finally this lovely and thoughtful spring-feeling card by Yana Smakula:
The beautiful Moments of Grace stamp set from this release includes pretty florals and leaves which Yana colored with markers. The sentiment is from the Love Messages stamp set also from the You are Loved release. Fun fact: This card was shared right here on our blog exactly one year ago today as part of our Yippee for Yana series. You can check out the original blog post HERE and see how she created the card on YouTube HERE.
