Loving Cup Valentine Easel Card

Amazing Paper Grace January 2022 dom Photoplay Tulia & Norbert Love Story Easel Card by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Loving Cup Valentine Easel Card with Photoplay Love Story and Amazing Paper Grace DOM

Hello, Friends!  Is there anything cuter than a Loving Cup Valentine made from Photoplay Paper’s Tulia & Norbert Love Story collection?   Well, maybe, if the loving cup is made with the Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace January 2022 Die of the Month.  I’ve never really thought of myself as much of a gnome person, but these little critters are so stinkin’ adorable.  And I love their hats, of all things! Crafting with them makes me smile!

  • First, make a 6×6 easel card base.  Line the inside and make a pocket to act as the stopper.
  • Next, fussy cut the gnomes from a 6″ x 4″ journal card and use them to line the pocket.  See what I mean about the hats?

Although the APG die is a pop up vignette, I opted to just use it as the focal image on my card.  One of the dies in the kit is a little note card designed to fit inside the cup.  However, I turned it into a vellum “tea bag” then tied it to the cup handle.  Cute, right?

A Peek Inside

The patterns in the Love Story collection are so bright and happy!  I love these candy hearts.

I created a little folio to hold a chocolate treat, then tucked in a color matched tea bag and honey stick to complete the card.

You can find out more about the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month Club HERE.  There’s also a fabulous SALE going on that you might want to check out.  I may or may not have found a few items that were such a good deal that I had to let them fall into my cart.

If you’d like to see what Becca made with this Club Kit, check out her blog HERE. Everything she does is super elegant, so it will be fun for you to see the design contrast.

    I took a closer look at this teacup die set…glad there was a video to show how the die set works. As much as I like the pop-up cup, I think I like your use better…a solid teacup (no use of the lacey detail die) on the front of a card appeals more to my creative brain. I like the more simple gnome designs…perfect for paper piecing. That polka dot ribbon is perfect on this card…floral clusters are so eye catching! Lovely and fun start to this new year of creating! Thanks, Kathy!!

    What a darling card, Kathy! The little gnomes are so cute. Love the way you made the little tea bag tied to the cup. And oh my, what gorgeous ribbon and roses. The little hearts with the sayings on them really take me back. I loved them as a child. Thank you for sharing! Hugs!
