Valentine Class

These are the cute projects we'll be making at my house this Thursday, February 6th at 1 or 7.
This first card features the stamp set Banner Blast along with it's coordinating punch, both of which are available free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration.  The inspiration came from this card I found on Pinterest.  I will have other sentiments available if you want it to say something other than Happy V-day.
These treat holders are made with the new scallop tag topper which I am so excited to play with some more. They hold a fun size Kit-Kat or Peanut Butter Cup.
And this card is another Pinterest find.  I love that place and it's perfect for me right now, while my crafting time is limited, I don't have to spend time coming up with an idea.  I just pull up my pins and start creating.  So you can find the original card here.  The only thing I changed was making the background Vanilla instead of white.  The word love and the red hexagons are all punched from sparkly red paper, so while this card is easy to make it has a big WOW factor.
Each item will be $2. I hope you can join us and if you can't, but are still interested in making the projects I can put a kit together for you. Just let me know.

Merry Monday #93

I am determined to get this posted on time so I can finally enter this challenge. Christmas Challenge #93 was to use Chocolate, Kraft, Vanilla, and Red with ribbon.

 I knew immediately that I wanted to use Stitched Stockings.  This is one of my very favorite Christmas stamp sets ever.  And the quilted ribbon is another favorite.  The sentiment comes from More Merry Messages.

Merry Monday # 92

This is my submission for last weeks Merry Monday challenge #92 to use a snowman.  I missed the deadline, but it's still 4 more Christmas cards for my stash.

At first, I didn't think I had any stamps with a snowman on them and then I remembered this one, which is not in a Christmas collection.  The snowman is tiny, but it's there.
And the inside...
It's hard to tell, but I put Dazzling Diamonds on the the little dots around the tree and on the ground.

The colors are Island Indigo and Pool Party with silver ribbon and Winter Frost DSP.

Getting a Jump on my Christmas cards

I didn't get any Christmas cards sent out for 2013 and so I made it one of my goals for this year to participate in the Merry Monday challenges each week.   I've been following the challenges and wanting to participate for a while now, so now is the time.  This challenge (#90) was to use ribbon or twine.   Not so hard.   I used the stamp set Endless Wishes.  I embossed the smaller snowflake and sentiment with silver embossing powder and the bigger snowflake in Midnight Muse. I used the silver ribbon from the Holiday Catalog which has been carried over to the Occasions Catalog.  Love it.
I also stamped the inside.
And since I was making one, I thought I'd make four.
