Make it Mine Monday: Sealed With Love Notes

Sealed With Love.1It’s Monday!  Make it Mine Monday!  Woo Hoo!

It’s also time to start thinking about Valentines.  Yep, Valentines.  These cute little 3 x 3 notes are my take on the ones we made at Stampin’ Up!’s November On Stage event.  You can see the ones that Stampin’ Up! designed in the second picture.

The first thing I changed on my little cards Sealed With Love.2was to get rid of the color green.  I’m sorry….Valentines aren’t green.  Save the green for St. Patrick’s Day!  Ha!

Stampin’ Up! used the Sending Love Designer Series Paper for the bases of the cards but I used Thick Whisper White card stock on all of mine.  On the first and third cards I just cut a 3 x 3 piece of designer paper and adhered it to the front of the card.

On the card in the upper right it’s hard to tell from the picture but I colored the wooden Sending Love embellishment red by rubbing the Real Red ink on it with a Sponge Dauber.  Did you know that you could do that?  Yep.  Just make sure to heat set it so the ink dries before you handle it.

Don’t you love the little envelopes in the center cards?  They’re made from the Sending Love Glassine Sheets and the Love Notes Framelits.

Can you see how easy it is to start with something and just change it up a bit to make it your own?  I hope you’re enjoying my Make it Mine Mondays.  Let me know what you think.  Take care and Happy Stamping!

Perfect Mix Valentine

Perfect Mix.0117Valentines Day is less than a month away and it’s time to get busy!  This week I’m holding my Love & Friendship Class.  Here is one of the cards we’ll be making.

I love the Perfect Mix stamp set.  It’s so clever!  This little mixer is one of my favorite images from the stamp set.  What’s your favorite?

This card is pretty simple but SO darn cute!  The designer paper is from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  The nice thing about this stack of papers is that not all of the images have hearts on them for Valentines Day.  There are a number of non-heart patterns which will make it perfect for the whole year.

I think this week after my classes are over I’m going to sit down and design more cards and projects with all of my Valentines products.  It seems a shame to use them only once.  Even if I won’t be using these projects in a class I can definitely share them with YOU!  🙂

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!

November Valentine!

IMG_7013What?  A valentine in November?  What am I thinking?

Well, if you’ve been following my recent posts you know that I’m in Dallas for a Stampin’ Up! event.  We demonstrators like to exchange ideas at these events by making cards that we share with each other.  This is the card I’m swapping.  Do you like it?  🙂

I was having a hard time deciding on what type of card to swap at this event.  There’s still plenty of time until Christmas so I could have used any of the fun Christmas products in the Holiday Catalog but I wanted something a little different.  I looked through the main catalog and at all of the stamp sets sitting on my shelves but nothing jumped out and grabbed me.  Then I happened to see the Red Foil Sheets in my stamp room and inspiration hit!  A Valentine!  Not just any valentine.  This valentine uses three products from the Holiday Catalog.  Yep.  Three!  Can you spot them?

Well, the first is my new favorite embossing folder:  Softly Falling.  The next is one I’ve already mentioned:  the Red Foil Sheets.  The final one is the new Curvy Corner Trio Punch.  If you haven’t played with this punch you need to give it a try.  Three punches in one!  All of this goodness in my favorite size card!

I’ll definitely share some of the fun I’ve had today over the next few days so stay tuned.  Don’t forget that you can check my Facebook page also to see what I’ve been up to!

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
