The theme of this blog hop is "Occasions/Sale-A-Brations" which made my heart jump as I had a design in my head for Valentine's Day for my wonderful husband, who is my big love and great support through good and bad times. I must be the luckiest girl on the planet with a man like him!

You may be starting the blog hop here at my blog, Sacha van de Kerkhof (Stampin' Sacha) from the Netherlands, or you may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full line up below will help you move along from blog to blog so you can see all the wonderful projects that everyone has made.

party pandas stamp set

For my card for today I used the ever so cute Party Pandas stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. I wanted to create an Eclipse Card but with a twist, as the letters are not quite aligned. The card had to be playful like the panda's`. Also the size of the card had to be different from a standard size.

panda between letters

First I stamped the panda's on the piece of Whisper White Cardstock in the way I wanted them between the letters. Then I cut the word "love" out with the Large Letters Framelits and coloured them with my Pool Party Stampin' Blends. It was easy to create an ombre effect by using the dark and the light marker.

I cut the letters four more times with Basic Black Cardstock to pop the word up and I created just a tiny bit of a black edge to give it a bit more interest. I gave the panda's a bit more depth with a ligth Smoky Slate Stampin' Blend Marker and faded it out with the Color Lifter.

panda with envelope with heart

I switched the balloon of the panda with a pop up heart. First I scored a piece of Calypso Cardstock with the Simply Scored and then I cut out the smallest heart two times and stuck them together at the fold.

Also from the same piece of cardstock I cut out the word "you" with the Celebrate You Thinlit Dies from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. Doesn't it look really cool? Of course I've used my Wink of Stella for some bling on this card!

heart with the word 'you'

I cut a small strip of Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper for the left side of the Whisper White layer and stamped a few hearts in the same (Calypso Coral) colour to tie everything together. The little heart comes from the Heart Happiness stamp set.

For the inside of the card I stamped one of the panda's again and a few of the hearts and adhered a strip of the same designer paper. Nothing is too much for my hubby! I made an envelope from the same designer paper, so everything matches. I love this card and I hope my husband and you will too!
