Happy Valentine's Day

I meant to post this on Sunday but I forgot my cards at my friends house, ops. These are quickie photos, sorry if the quality isn't as good. 

Card 1:
This card is featuring one of the new stamp sets from the 2011 Occasions Mini Catalog that just came out.

Card 2:
I started out trying to make a "simple" card...this is what happens when I try to do simple, I get elaborate. :)

Card 3:
This was a card we made in a class I held this past sat as a quick little 5 minute card.

Oh no I forgot to photograph one of my cards...I'll have to take some pics and post this in another post. 

Happy Valentine's Day,

It sure does look like used 2 different color inks on the background doesn't it?
Truth be told that is the exact same color but for the lighter shade I didn't build up the color to give it the true Bravo Burgundy shade. I also used a clear acrylic stamp which made this technique easier since I could see if I had too little or too much ink on the stamp.

What I used on this card:
  • Cardstock: Pretty in Pink (SU!), Random Ivory scrap
  • Ink: Bravo Burgundy and Basic Black (SU! Classics) and a random shade of pale magenta from a cat's eye stack.
  • Pop Dots
  • Stamps: XoXo (unknown), Demask from a Prima Clear set.
I'll be doing a stamp workshop today so I will 3 very cute cards to share with you tomorrow.

PSC: Clean vintage card

What I used on this card:

  • Cardstock: Black random scrap, Pretty in Pink (SU!)
  • Ink: Basic Black (SU!)
  • Gold Embossing Powder
  • Stamps: Friends 24-7, Day of Gratitude (SU!)

Have a beautiful Sat!

I'm back, and have GREAT news!

So first off my cousin Delaney made it through her surgery, she had a lot of bleeding but we got a miracle and almost all of the tumor was pulled out. Her vitals improved once it was out but has remained in the ICU since. Her recover will take time but she is a fighter so she marches on towards health everyday. Thank you all who have prayed for her, everyone in my family truly appreciates it.

I was able to get a few cards made in the last few days so here is one...

What I used for this card:

  • Cardstock: Pink & Cream (Recollections)
  • Stamp:  Set Unknown (Prima), Wonderful Words ( SU!)
  • Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black (SU!)
  • Brads in a dark color (no brand)
Thanks for visiting,
