Video: February Online Class Featuring Wonderful Moments week 2

 This Facebook Live Class was held on Valentine's Day.  It is not officially a Valentine's Day card, but it is a card that represents love.  It represents romance, softness, and elegance  It represents a bride dressed her very best, dreaming in anticipation of the moment her life will change forever,; she will change from  Miss to Mrs, from single woman to wife, beginning her family with her love, and maybe even changing her last name before the end of the day


The Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adds a feeling of elegance and the pearls added to the tufts adds a touch of elegance.  The watercolor wash in Blushing Bride creates more of a stark contrast with the pure white of the bride's gown.

Check out the video tutorial  for this card:




Sale-A-Bration second release begins today.  There is a new stamp set, embossing folder, and bundle with stamp set and matching DSP you can earn February 15-March 31.  Don't miss out on these exciting new products.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!!!  I hope you woke up this morning feeling loved and ready to spread the love to everyone you meet.  I want to challenge you to try to brighten the day of everyone you come in contact with today even if it's only with your smile and friendly greeting.  Make it your mission to make the world around you just a little bit better.

I was so excited to see a color challenge featuring my favorite color combination once again--pink and grey.  I knew immediately I would be joining the Paper Players color challenge this week and set about gathering all my card making supplies  I was shocked to discover my Melon Mambo ink pad has disappeared.  I searched all over for it and never could quite pin it down (I have a new one on my most recent order).  So, I substituted Lovely Lipstick for Melon Mambo



The stitching details of these stamps and thinlits never ceases to amaze me  I know it looks like I've spent the afternoon sewing on my card, but I promise I haven't.  :) There will be a list of products used on this card at the end of this post, but before that happens, I'd like to take a minute with a parade of Valentine cards I've made this year.  Enjoy!!

No Cutting Required

Sale-a-Bration offers some pretty impressive paper this year  When I saw this no cut design using a piece of 12" x 12" paper, I knew instantly I wanted to try it with some of the Sale-A-Bration paper.   I  spent quite a bit of time one evening creating five of these  Here are the three which reached the final cut and were finished with decorations




This would make a cute little handbag that matched your dress as well as a nice gift bag.  If I were going to use it for a handbag, I think I would attach Velcro to keep it closed  I originally thought about the foil as a handbag for Prom or another formal event.  How amazing that would look when the light catches the foil and creates a shimmer of rainbows.




I love how the Designer Series Paper is double sided, so you not only get a gorgeous pattern on the outside of your bag, there is a surprise pattern on the inside as well.

I CASEd this bag from Sam Hammond  To see her video tutorial and get the measurements to make one yourself, check out her blog here

Waiting for the Birth of a Star

 The night is full of stars, twinkling brightly in the dark sky, different shapes and different levels of brightness  Some form constellations in the sky, forming an image she can imagine if she looks hard enough and connects the dots with her minds eye  Some form shapes only she imagines as new constellations are born from her imagination as she connects the stars in new ways

She is quiet as she looks at the stars and dreams about the star that will be born soon and join her family.  The star that is growing inside her right now.  The star that will be born with promise and shine brightly into the world.  She imagines the impact of this star on her world and the many other' light will touch  She dreams of the brightness about to enter the world.  She can't wait to meet this miracle and witness the impact on the world.

 The expectation of a new baby seems like the perfect occasion to spend time creating a handmade card to welcome this new miracle.  II was inspired by the sketch from #tgifc198 and I also chose to enter this card in the Just Add Ink Challenge 443.  The two elements I chose were coloring and sequins  The star shaped sequins were perfect for this card.

Simple Valentines #simplestamping

I've had a great time making #simplestamping Valentines this month.  We had a great time making toppers for treat bags and 3" x 4" Valentine cards.  These cards are what will be making in Simple Stamp class this week.  I love how gorgeous Stampin' Up! cards are even when using nothing more than stamps, ink, and paper.



The DistINKtive stamps never cease to amaze me with the depth and detail that happens with just putting stamp to ink and paper.  The tip about running bone folder or spoon, or something over the ink pad to press the ink away from the center of the pad before stamping makes a world of difference in the clarity of the image
I used the Forever Lovely DistINKtive stamps to create the heart border on the outside and inside of this card as well  I don't know if this card officially counts as simple stamping because I did use the Big Shot  and the Be Mine Stitched Framelits, but when people come to class to create their Valentines, the hearts will already be cut out for them and all they will need to do is choose the pattern they want and glue it to their card front.  So, it may not have officially been a simple stamping design, but it is simple Valentine to put together  I love how the Grapefruit Grove foil simmers and shines rainbows as it catches the light
