Embrace Life, Card

I love the way this card turned out. I used a new set from Stampin' Up's!® Spring - Summer 2008 Collection called, Embrace Life. I used Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Basic Gray & Very Vanilla Card stocks. I stamped the card with Pretty in Pink & Whisper White. I used my Basic Gray pad to stamp the flowers & leaves. I used my blender pen to color in the images by lifting the color from my ink pads. The white is also from my Whisper White Craft Pad. I added Taffeta Ribbon to finish off the card. I love to here your thoughts on this one.

Have a Heart, Box with Flap

Another Happy Heart Day Project. This time I did a Valentine box. There is a great tutorial on Splitcoast which you can link to from here. 2-5-7-10 Box with Flap
As you can see, I first roller stamped a sheet of Pixie Pink Card stock using my Love Wheel with a Pink Passion ink cartridge. Stampin' Up! sells the un-inked cartridges and you just add a re-inker in the color of choice. You can basically have a cartridge in all of our 48 Colors, our In Colors & the Neutral colors if desired. I stamped the mouse with Basic Black on Whisper White Card stock & colored in with Stampin' Write Markers and a Blender Pen. I added Certainly Celery Card stock in my layering, scalloped the flaps using my corner rounder and added a Whisper White grosgrain ribbon to finish off the box. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Happy Heart Day, Party Favor

Whenever I think of elephants, peanuts always come to mind, so using these Circus Peanuts was just what I needed to make this valentine favor from the new Happy Heart Day stamp set. Using Whisper White, Real Red & Bordering Blue Card stock I stamped images with Basic Black and colored in using my Watercolor crayons and Aqua Painter. I also used Circle Punches, a Medium Flat 4 x 6 Cellophane Bag, Groovy Guava Double Stitched & 5/8 inch Real Red Grosgrain Ribbons. I also put Red Hots in the bag for added color.
