Sweet Valentine

Good Evening,  I have been wanting to make a valentine box since I saw these heart dies from SU.  I started by cutting out 2 hearts with the hearts framelits dies on that thin carboard backing that comes with the DSP.  I thought this would make it more sturdy.  You can not cut the thicker cardboard or chipboard with these dies but you can the white thin cardboard.  I then cut 2 hearts in Ridding hood red (which I am now out of, note to self) and glued them to the whiteboard hearts with my tombow glue.  I then cut a strip of DSP from the new twitterpated collection (which I absoultely love) with the same heart die.  I added some of the new pleated satin ribbon in blushing bride along the top of the DSP.  I then stamped an image from the "Take it to Heart" stamp set in Whisper white craft ink and embossed it with my new cherry sented embossing powder and cut it out using one of the smaller heart dies.  The banner is from the same stamp set and the sweet Valentine is from "something to celebrate" stamp set.  I tied a little bow and attached on of the Trinket Hearts charms to it.  For the box I cut a piece of CS at 5 x 5 and a piece of CS at 5 1/16 x 5 1/16 and scored them at 1" on all sides and glued them to the hearts.  This is perfect to hold a few ghiradelli chocolates or other small candies.  Hope you like it, Thanks for stopping by:)

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Pleasant Poppies

These are a couple of Sympathy cards I made this week for 2 different friends.  I used the same set Pleasant Poppies and water colored one with Primrose Petals and the other with Raspberry ripple.  Love the new In-colors from Stampin Up!  I used 2 different framelits from the Apothecary Accents set.  On the bottom of the top card I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits (love them) and the other one I used one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits.  The ribbon is just some of the Taffeta Ribbon in very vanilla which I sponged with the matching in-colors to get the color I wanted.  The sentiment is done using a stamp from the Petite Pairs Stamp set and punched out with the new Ticket Duo Punch. The very vanilla layer is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder.  Well thats it for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.   Feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think.

Avant Garden

Hello stampers,

I'm back with some more coloring.  This is another card from my Challenge class last month.  I used the water color pencils on this card however I did not use any water.  I just simply used them like you would a colored pencil.  I love how this turned out. 
Here is a close up of the flower....
I used the gray pencil and the white pencil on the flowers and a little bit of green on the stem.  This stamp set is called Avant Garden and can be yours for free with a $50 order before tax and shipping.  This offer is only good until March 31 and only while supplies last so don't wait if there is something you had your eyes on.  You can check out all of the free sets by clicking on the links for Sale-a-bration on the right hand side of my blog.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by
