Hearts A Flutter Valentine

IMG_2475I just love how Stampin Up is grouping products together in their catalogs to create product suites.  It makes it even easier to make beautiful cards when all I need to do is start out with things that already coordinate with each other!

I created this card for a Spring Mini swap and used lots of stuff from the More Amore Suite.  See the large, lacy Primrose Petals heart on the left side?  That was snipped from the laser-cut sheet that comes with the More Amore designer series paper!  Then I stamped the lacy heart from the Hearts a Flutter set in Versamark and embossed it with Pool Party embossing powder and stamped the ‘hearts’ heart from the same set in Real Red to create the stamped layers.  Here are the ingredients for this card:

Card stock:  Pool party, Very Vanilla, More Amore DSP

Stamps:  Hearts a Flutter, That’s the Ticket

Ink:  Versamark, Real Red, Primrose Petals, Pool Party

Accessories:  Clear & Pool Party Embossing Powder; 5/8″ Flower Trim; Ticket Duo Builder Punch, Homemade Shimmer Spray, Pool Party 1/4″ Satin Ribbon (a Sale-A-Bration award from the Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack)

Hope you have a terriffic Tuesday, and take some time to be creative!



Happy Birthday, Jen!

IMG_2471Ask anyone who knows her and they will tell you my daughter is a complete fan of anything new, funky, and unusual.  She has found her calling as a Nail Technician, and embraces art and style in both her job and her personal life.  As much as she is a fan of most anything contemporary, her mama knows that she’s still a girly girl deep down inside.  She’ll always be my baby, and I love her with all my heart and soul…

Its a tradition that I make part of her birthday present an over-the-top Wow! card, and this one is what I gave her this year.  Of course, the lace and flowers show off the girly side, but I managed to get a little contemporary with the chevron embossing and bottle caps.  What do you think?  Did I capture her spirit?

Here’s what I used:

Cardstock:  Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Tea for Two DSP

Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink:  Calypso Coral

Accessories:  Artisan Embellishments Kit; 5/8″ Flower Trim; Soda Pop Tops; Linen Thread; Pearls Basic Jewels; Chevron Embossing Folder; Bitty Butterfly Punch

All items are available in my Online Store
