Love Notes


These were the Make and Take projects from my recent Workshop. Each of the 17 ladies made all 3 cards. The 3 x 3 inch size makes them easy to embellish. You can use them as they are or attach them to a standard 4.25 x 5.5 inch card. The pink card was colored with Stampin' Up! Pure Color Pencils. The center card was simply stamped with Tempting Turquoise ink and punched using the Scallop Circle Punch. We added some Ginger Blossom Designer Paper and layered. The final card uses Kraft Cardstock and Berry Bliss Designer Paper. We added a Chipboard heart and the greeting from Define Your Life was stamped in Purely Pomegranate ink. PP ink was also sponged on the heart to color it. Thanks to Dawn and Margie for helping me the day of Eileen's 7th Annual Workshop! It was wild!

Sr. Center Class projects 4/24/08





I had 17 ladies sign up for class this time. I created these simple, easy cards for them. (click on each card to enlarge)
It's a challenge for me to create cards that use only one ink pad.
Keeping the cards simple is the key. Using different techniques and tools helps.
I generally used makers and punches for the Sr. Center cards. These are great for adding some "punch" to simple cards.

Rub-ons + Scallop Notes = Easy


Although this photo doesn't show these cute Scallop Notes very well...they are really sweet. Scallop edges are all the rage. I made this note card for a Party I held recently. No cutting, scoring or stamping involved. I simply applied Stampin Up Rub-ons! These are superior quality, in my opinion. This was a fun, easy project.

My SWAP cards...








I was recently invited to participate in a SWAP with 4 other Stampin Up Demos. I love this new set from the "Occasions" mini catalog, called Bloomin' Blossoms. (Pgs 2&3) Card #1 Reverse masking: Used the Coluzzle to cut an oval shape in a piece of scrap CS to create the oval template. I held the template over the card front and sponged Old Olive ink to create the look of a layer of CS. While the template was still in place, I stamped the flowers and the bee. Removed the template and colored the images with Stampin' Up PURE COLOR pencils. I added the new Ribbon Sliders and Olive Poly Twill ribbon, also found in the Occasions mini. Card #2 This card was water colored using the AquaPainter and ink from my Purely Pomegranate ink pad. Card base is Purely Pomegranate. Designer Paper is Certainly Celery and the image was stamped on Whisper White using Black Stazon ink. River Rock ink was used for the vase color and Old Olive for the leaves. Card #3 Pretty in Pink card base. I used Shimmery White CS for the flower image and added a simple layer of vellum. Again, water coloring the flower with Old Olive and Purely Pomegranate ink. I love the simplicity of this card. I want to make one in every color. Posted by Picasa
