Ugly Christmas Sweater… CARDS!

This was SO fun! Last night at our Girls, Ink! group party, our hostess Rochelle provided supplies for us to make “ugly Christmas sweater” cards! Hysterical! And so easy. Make a standard size card base, use any patterned paper, and make it look like a sweater by making a V neck or scoop top. Scoop top made using a circle punch. This really might need to be an annual creation! My ugly sweater card is on the top row, second from the right. Let me know what you think about these! 🙂

Happy Valentine’s Day to YOU!

FEB Card-More Amore-001I’ve been playing with My Digital Studio again! I found a Valentine’s Day card design I liked, and changed a few items on it to make it my own. So fun! I used the More Amore designer paper & ensemble, and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp brush set.

In Love with Valentine’s Day: Class Projects

Are YOU ready for Valentine’s Day? You are if you make one or all of these adorable projects! We made these at my recent “In Love with Valentine’s Day” class!

The card on the right uses Crumb Cake cards & envelopes, which come in a package of 20, already cut and scored for you! We simply stamped, added some Stacked with Love Washi Tape, and added the Sweetheart Punch heart on dimensionals.

The “so sweet” project in front of the card is a Ghirardelli chocolate holder! We used the Ornate Tag Topper Punch, Stacked with Love designer paper stack, and the Hello Life photopolymer stamp set. It’s tied with a simple white baker’s twine, and has a single rhinestone embellishment.

The box project on the left uses one of my favorite items: Tiny Treat Boxes! They are 2-inch cubes, 25 per package. We added some designer paper, a Red Glimmer Paper (no glitter-shedding!) heart punch and tied it up with a Real Red cotton ribbon bow.

The final card is a shaker card. The window is cut with the Word Bubble Framelits, and the tiny hearts inside were punched with the Hearts Border Punch.

Let me know if you have any questions. You can order all the supplies for the above projects from my Online Store, 24/7! Order NOW for Valentine’s Day projects – orders typically take 7 days to arrive unless you pay extra for expedited shipping.
