Occasions Mini Swap card

I used a Mojo Monday layout challenge for this card, and I love it! It did take me a little while to get the hang of the corner and border punches working together, but the effect is wonderful. This is going to be another of my favorites :) I think this little owl is my favorite in the Love Bandit set. The one thing that I didn't do one this card that I did on the swaps I sent out was I stamped the Woodgrain background stamp in Regal Rose on the card base, which really brings the card to a new level. But I couldn't pull this apart and stamp on it. Oh, well. And this set is a clear mount rubber stamp set, and it was so easy to place everything just where I wanted it! Love it!

Valentine for Club Tonight

 I love Valentine's Day, don't you? It is so fun to find little ways to show those around us we care. And let's face it, papercrafters love to make cute stuff and will use any excuse, lol!
Here is the card we are making for club tonight. I usually avoid using Craft ink in a large group because it can be soooo messy, but I think it will be worth it for this project :) I used all kinds of stuff from the new Occasions Mini and the Sale-A-Bration brochure, which are both packed full of cute stuff that I can't wait to show it all to you! Ok, so here is the breakdown for this card.
  • Stamps: Love Bandit, I (Heart) Hearts, Grateful Greetings(from Holiday Mini-not available-sorry)
  • Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Naturals Ivory, Pretty in Pink
  • Ink: Whisper White Craft, Real Red, Pretty in Pink
  • Other: Scallop Trim border punch, Heart to Heart punch, Full Heart punch, 3/4" circle punch, Signo white gel pen, Real Red marker, Corner Rounder punch
Oops! I will try to find something else to stamp the greeting for tonight since you can't get Grateful Greetings now. I only now realized I used an unavailable set for this card!

Pink Damask Card

I was asked to make 4 custom Valentine's Day cards, one of which is to go to a sophisticated lady. So I played around with my new toys and this is what I came up with. I hope she likes it! The layout is from Mojo Monday.
  • Stamps: I (Heart) Hearts, Well Scripted
  • Paper: Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Regal Rose, Whisper White
  • Ink: Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Regal Rose, Platinum Shimmer Paint
  • Other: sponge dauber, Signo white gel pen, Melon Mambo marker, Melon Mambo polka dot ribbon, Whisper White satin ribbon, horizontal slot and 1-3/8" circle punches, dimensionals
  1. Stamp the damask style heart from I (Heart) Hearts set in Pretty in Pink ink, and then in Platinum Shimmer paint on the Pretty in Pink card base.
  2. Punch out the circles and adhere as shown.
  3. Punch a little slit in the spine of the card with the horizontal slot punch where you will slide the ribbon through and adhere the ribbon as shown, overlapping in the center where the sentiment image will cover it.
  4. On a 2-1/2" square of Whisper White, stamp the heart again in Pretty in Pink, then stamp the sentiment in Melon Mambo.
  5. Mat sentiment on a 2-11/16" square of Melon Mambo. Adhere to card as shown with dimensionals.
  6. Use white gel pen and Melon Mambo marker to make the faux stitching on the card.
     All done!
I will post more of my Valentine's Day creations soon!

Vintage Thanks

Here is another thank you card I recently made. I got to use some new stuff and some retired stuff here :) Sometimes it really pays to hoard a few things! I doubt I will ever get rid of that sentiment stamp set, and some day I will use up my stash of Soft Sky.I really love the new clear mount option that Stampoin Up is offering in the Occasions Mini that starts in Jan 5th!
  • Stamps: Vintage Vogue, Warmest Regards (retired)
  • Paper: Soft Sky (retired)
  • Ink: Chocolate Chip
  • Other: Organza Ribbon
