Thank you note

Decided to try swapping.  Signed up for a thank you card swap and this is the card I have decided to send.  The color of paper used are whisper white, daffodil delight, and black.  Ink used was black and daffodil delight.  The stamp set used hostess set posy punch and then cut out using the fancy flower punch.  Edges are cut using the edgelits die cut with the textured impressions embossing- adorning accents.

Heart to Heart

Here is my take on a picture from the January stampin success.  I wanted something that could still be hung after valentine day.  Instead of using valentine paper I used Beau Chateau.  I then used the new heart framelits.  Then the little hearts are cut using the fashionable hearts embosslits.  The background is confetti white cut into an 8 x 8 square.  The bow on the smaller heart is marine mist 1/4 inch grosgrain.  

Purse favor

This is a purse made from the top note die cut.  Could not find the pattern I saw on splitcoaststamper so this is my version.  The color used is the concord crush and glitter paper.

Bridal Shower Invites

Trying to decide which card to use for a bridal shower.  Got a cricut for christmas and this gave me the opportunity to play a little.  Her colors are green, purple and silver.  Used the concord crush, glitter paper, white, and pear pizzazz.  My favorite is the cake invitation.

Fancy Hearts

Made this card after seeing the hearts on Valitas design blog.  Had to try to make and thought it was fun. Going to make them this month.  Will post the directions a little later today when I sit down again to play.

Here is a link to Valita's Design website   There is a tutorial on how to make the hearts on this card.  The Card is cut from Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the top note is cut out of white paper      using the top note die cut.  The background behind the hearts is cut using a sizzix label die cut out of glitter paper.  The ribbon is cherry cobbler seam binding.  Stamp set on decorative label punch using the You are loved stamp set.  

First Card of New Year

Finally have gotten all the christmas decoration put away and cleaning done.  Love Christmas but hate the clean up.  Happy New Year to everyone.  Spent some time playing yesterday getting ideas for the monthly stamp group.  Love the new framelits from Stamping Up.  Used it for several projects.

 This easel card is my first attempt with this technique, it came out better then expected.  The Card is cut using the largest framelit.  The inner heart on the front is cut out using the third largest heart in the set.

After cutting out that heart I lined it with pink pleated satin ribbon so it sticks out through opening.   I then cut two hearts like the one used on the inside using the second heart.

One was used on the base and the other was for the back of the top and stamped the Love on it and attached to back of top piece.

 The love stamp comes from the Outlined Occasions stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  The Card Stock  and ink color are Cherry Cobbler.  The small hearts are cut out of the red glitter paper.  Haven't decided on the phrase for the inside yet.
