Heart Bouquet


A fast and fun valentine card! I made this card using the SU demonstrator challenge colors - tempting turquoise, lovely lilac, certainly celery, night of navy and a little splash of real red. I don't have a heart punch so I used the heart stamp from the Sock Monkey set and cut them out. For the vase, I punched out the wide oval punch and then cut off the top part. The sentiment is curved and popped up on foam dimensionals.



Stamps: Sock Monkey, Holidays and Wishes, Polka Dot

Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Lovley Lilac, Certainly Celery,

Night of Navy

Ink: Stazon Black, Tempting Turquoise, VersaMark

Accessories: Real Red Grosgrain, Eyelets, Wide Oval Punch

Two of my nieces had on glittery taffeta dresses on Sunday that I thought would make a lovely card! So I thought I would try out using glitter on vellum.

I stamped the leaf image with versamark and applied heat and stick power. After I heated the heat and stick powder, I generously dumped on the orchid fine cosmo glitter from SU and heat set the glitter with the heat gun.

Then I had this fabulous glittery piece of velum and no plan! This is my final product.

The ribbon is some leftover retired purely pomegranite satin ribbon and the sentiment was oval punched and popped up with dimensionals.

Thanks for looking and Happy Creating!

Heartfelt Cased Sale-a-bration


When I have time (or rather when I want to!) - I participate in challenges for SU demonstrators on Splitcoaststampers - the number one stamping place on the web. Recently the challenge was to CASE (copy and share everything) a card out of the upcoming Sale-a-bration (SAB) Brochure (SU's once a year special free stamp sale in Feb and Mar).

This is my CASED card. The only thing changed was I used the Heartfelt Thanks stamp set instead of the SAB stamp set that SU featured in the brochure.

Happy Creating!


Stamp Set: Heartfelt Thanks
Paper: Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Celery Ribbon, Celery Brad and Button, Bashful Blue Brad, Five Petal Flower Punch, 1/4 Circle Punch
