Valentine’s Card Kits

DSCN0028e Here are a couple of Valentine’s cards which I would be offering as my Valentine’s Class if my classroom were functional.  But since I am “homeless” right now, I will offer card kits for this month. The first card is a silver and white card made with the new silver embossed vellum and layered onto silver foil. The stamp set is the Language of Love – however, if you don’t have this set – Heart’s a Flutter will work for these cards too. DSCN0039e   The second card is made with the Fresh Prints Designer paper stack and the Language of Love stamp set.  Again – the Hearts a Flutter stamp set would also work for this card. 2014-01-09 09.36.57 The third card is also made with the Fresh Prints designer paper.  The hearts are cut from red glitter paper using the Hearts a Flutter framelits.   Ang Coastal Cabana Card-2 The fourth card has a modern flair and is made with coastal cabana and real red card stocks and the silver embossed vellum.  The stamp is from the Hearts a Flutter set.     So the details: I will precut the card stock and provide all the embellishments – just like you are taking the class with me.  You can purchase this pre-cut card kit for $24.95 for 8 cards (2 of each of the 4 designs). Or  – I am offering the full set of directions for these Valentine’s cards and more as follows: First 3 card directions for $11.95 Directions for 6 different cards for $19.95 (these 4 cards plus 2 other cards) Directions for 8 different cards for $24.95.

Mixed Bunch Card Sample

100_9122e2This is another one of the cards that I made using the Mixed Bunch stamp set.  I used the stamp set in a little different manner this time. I used the daisy stamp from the set and stamped a white daisy on lucky lime aid, summer starfruit, calypso coral and island indigo cardstocks.  I then embossed these flowers with white embossing powder.   Then I punched out the center of each daisy with the 1 1/4″ square punch.  I layered each piece onto a coordinating piece of cardstock punched with the 1 3/8″ square punch.  This is layered onto a square of whisper white and then a square of summer starfruit. I emobossed a piece  of whisper white cardstock with the petals a plenty embossing folder and added a piece of calypso coral ruffled ribbon.  I stamp the MOM in lucky limeade.  This is layered onto a white card base. Each of the daisies and the flower in the O of the Mom are embellished with a rhinestone jewel.   This card is part of the mixed bunch cards that I designed last week.  The directions for these cards are available for $4.95 via paypal.

One Sheet Wonder technique

Good Morning!  Well I hope that everyone is staying dry and warm on this rainy April Friday. 100_9125e_edited-1 Tonight is Bring Your Own Project Night which I host monthly in my Creative Playground. For those of you that don’t have a project to work on, I have put together a card kit using the Stamp Set Mixed Bunch (my favorite floral set from the main catalog) and the in-colors.   Yesterday I posted a couple of cards that I had designed using Mixed Bunch and the One Sheet Wonder technique. I used Mary Jo’s sketch challenge to make the Third card. ScreenHunter_83 Mar. 27 08.13 Here is Mary Jo’s sketch. the One Sheet Wonder technique is a fun way to make your designer paper.  A great technique for backgrounds on cards or scrapbook pages. To make this technique, select a stamp set and your desired colors of ink.  I used Summer Starfruit, Daffodi Delight, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeaid and Indigo Island.  You randomly stamp a sheet of cardstock with the images.  Your sheet will start to look like a sheet of wallpaper. 100_9127 You then use your sheet of stamped cardstock as you would a piece of designer paper.   I added a couple of rhinestone crystals to the petals and center of the flower.  the ribbon is the daffodil delight stitched grosgrain ribbon.     I hope to see you tonight at Bring Your Own Project Night! 100_9126e_edited-1
