Valentine's Day card

Here's the Valentine's Day card I'll be sending out to my family soon. It's about 90% CASED. I changed a few things, but loved the original idea so much I thought I'd just leave (almost) it as-is!
Happy Stamping!

Stamp Club January 2012

These are the cards I demoed and we made at the January Stamp Club. The card, above is Emboss Resist. Stamp an image with VersaMark and emboss with clear embossing powder. Then run an inked-up brayer over it, and then rub a paper towel over it. That will rub off the ink from the embossed part. You can also try embossing in other colors (lighter work best), sponging on the ink, etc. Wherever you embossed something, the ink will resist it!

The smaller card, above, has a Maze Game from the Occasions Mini. Those maze games can be a little addicting!

We stamped the word "Love" and then cut it out with the Framelits Label Collection. I love the way you can see through the die to get perfect placement. The ribbon is also from the Occasions Mini. The hearts along the bottom are from the SAB (Sale-A-Bration) catalog.

This is a Double Z-Fold card. We put a belly band around it so it would stay closed better. These cards are quick and easy, but with a little DSP (Designer Series Paper) it looks like you spent a ton of time on it. The picture below shows it half open with the belly band on the side.

Happy Stamping!

January Stamping Fun Night 2012

The first card I will demo at Stamping Fun Night uses the fun new Maze Game in the Occasions Mini. This game is still as addictive as when you were a kid! I wrote "love u!" with clear mount stamps on a long block. It was a great way to stamp all the letters at one time!

This quick and easy card, above, will be a make-n-take. This card uses products from the Sale-A-Bration Mini, but just about any Designer Series Paper (DSP) and stamp set will work!

The other make-n-take is made with a Framelits from the Occasions Mini. These are fun to use- and you can see where you are cutting when you run it through the Big Shot!

Happy Stamping!
