Valentine Treat

Here is another Valentine creation I made using the Petite Pocket Bix XL.  The stamp set is from the new Ciao, Baby! from the Spring Catalog.  The printed tag wrapped around the Petite Pocket is from the Holiday Catalog from the Snow Festival Designer Printed Tags.  I inserted a Blow Pop in the pocket for a Valentine treat.

Happy Easter Bunny

Isn't this just the cutest Easter card?  My demo friend Dianne, made this card and sent it to me last week.  It really made me smile.  It is made with punches and the ribbon is the new 3/8" Striped Organdy Melon Mambo Ribbon in the Spring Catalog. Thanks Dianne for letting me post it to my blog.

Cross My Heart

This is a card I made for a Stampin' Up! demo friend of mine.  We have been friends for over a year when we did a group swap, but the hostess for the swap never returned our swaps.  So my demo friend and I have sent emails to each other almost every day and have become very good friends.  So I guess a bad thing turned into a good thing.  She has helped me with so many tips or ideas for my husband's health because her mother went through cancer too.  Anyway, this one is for you Dianne.  This card is made using the new stamp set Cross My Heart.  The colors I used were:  Pool Party, Primrose Petals, Basic Black, and Very Vanilla which are colors in the More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper.   I used the DSP to punch the heart with the Hearts Collection Framelits.  I also used the laser-cut doily heart from the More Amore DSP.  The background was made using the new Pool Party Core'dinations Card Stock which is perfect for using the Sanding Block after I ran it through the Big Shot using the new Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  With the Paper Snips, I trimmed out two sections of the Honeycomb from the More Amore DSP and attached to the front of my card with a button from the Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack from Sale-a-Bration brochure.

Be My Valentine

I didn't post at all in January.  My husband was in the hospital and no time to stamp, but I did make a couple cards before he got sick.  This is one I made for a swap I was in.  It is made with the new Hearts a Flutter stamp set and Hearts a Flutter Framelit Dies.  The "Be my Valentine" is from Delightful Dozen and the "Just for You" is from Tea Shoppe.  The little hearts are from the Owl Builder Punch and attached with Glue Dots.  The colors I used are Very Vanilla and the 2012-2014 Primrose Petals In-Color.  The background is made with the Fancy Fan Folder.  I used the new Borders Scoring Plate for the bottom of my card.
