I am freezing my tush off here in Newfoundland. I am not a fan of winter and generally spend this time of year holed up in my home. Fortunately for me I have Stampin' Up! I am not sure how I managed winter before SU (cause as you get older the mind tends to also hibernate). I am surrounded by Bright colors - and hearts - and lots of Flowers oh and my music!
I love music and have it playing 24/7 when I am working. I never turn on a TV (well except to watch Survivor - I know, What's up with that?) Last night I was in my craft room working on an up coming Valentines day Class and listening to a radio station from Athens Greece. Music is universal for sure and even though the announcers speak Greek the music is English and I like the mix in the evenings as it is up beat and I get to listen to what I like to call World Music. So Opa!!! (sounds of smashed plates in the background and dancing in my head going on!)
So as I said last night I was working on my Valentine's Day class and making pretty cards. Yay now I have a couple of things to show you.
Found this card on the net done by Leigha Rock. I liked how she used a couple of non traditional stamp sets to make a Valentine's day card. The Post card stamp (wavy lines) is from Christmas Post Card and the Paris, Coffee blotches and wording is from French Foliage. I punched out the hearts with the Trio Heart punch (the largest heart) and did as she did and placed the colors from lightest to darkest. So - Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Poppy Parade, Real Red and Cherry Cobbler. I did change the greeting and the way it was presented. I also added a bit of bling to the middle heart and the greeting is from Filled with Love. So lots of different things going on here for sure. What I like about this card is if you were giving it to a man you could dispense with the glitter stone. With the greeting it could be for any time of the year.
This is a small note card/Valentine Card way to present a Hersey Kiss. This one would work for co-workers or kids. I used the Pinking Hearts border punch and the Brights Designer Package. I used Filled with Love for the Stamp set and cut out the O with a 1" circle punch. The Hersey Kiss is glued on with Sticky Strip. Cute huh?
This is the inside of the 3" x 3" note card. Oh and ladies I will be bringing the Chocolate!
Of course no class would be complete without this easel card that I showed you in one of my other posts. I only have one or two more projects to work on today and I am heading to Stephenville tomorrow for a class out that way. Hopefully the weather will co-operate!
The ladies are coming tonight to work on a couple of cards using the Flower Fancy stamp set. I should have some new ones to show you tomorrow.
