Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! I hope you are enjoying your day! I wanted to share these last minute goodie bags I came up with last night! These are for Nick (my boyfriends son) to pass out to his class.He said they all had to be the same so we made small 3x3 cards using the P.S. I Love You stamp set from Stampin' Up! we stamped the Heart in Real Red and then the greeting in Basic Grey. We added a silver glimmer heart using the small heart punch and then he signed his name on the inside!
The goodie bags had a blow pop, a fruit by the foot and a fun dip inside. For the tops of the bags I used the NEW framelits dies in the Occasions Mini catalog, folded them in half and stapled them to the top of the bag. We added a Basic Black circle with dimesionals that had a P.S. I Love You greeting on it with a red glimmer paper heart.

Emboss Resist

I saw a card similar to this one a while back and the image has just stuck in my head. I think it was from Shannon West from Stampin' Up! 
I am doing a Technique Tuesday class this evening and one of the techniques we are doing is emboss resist and this will be the card we make to go along with it! If you are in the Tampa area and would like to join in the fun click here and join Croppers Couture!

I used Elegant Eggplant as the card base
then a layer of Wisteria Wonder and then a layer of Whisper White. I used the Vintage Vogue stamp set and Elegant Eggplant ink on the dark image and the sentiment (Teeny Tiny Wishes) and then stamped off the small flower in Wisteria Wonder before stamping on the card. I used Versamark ink on the large flower and clear embossing powder over it! After I heated it I used my sponge dauber with Wisteria Wonder and rubbed over the image and then the edges. I used my spritzer tool with my ELegant Eggplant marker to get the speckles! That tool is so cool and gives it just the right amount of color! 

Have a great day!!

Leprechaun Punch Art

One of my downline members, Aida, was creating this card at my crop on Friday and I absolutely fell in LOVE!! I thought this little guys was so adorable, I had to snap a photo! Not only does the out side look amazing, check out the rainbow of butterflies on the inside!! Aren't they amazing? It was funny because she was sitting next to me the entire time and I kept looking of at all the little tiny squares she was cutting out wondering what the heck she was doing. Each colored pile of 
squares kept getting bigger and bigger and more and more colors were getting added to the pile. Then....she wanted started using the butterfly embosslit folder for just the tiny little butterfly and cut out each one for a card class she was teaching! What an amazing job Aida!! I know your ladies will love making this one! Thanks for letting me share:)

Dog gone Cute!

I am not the one who designed this card and I'm sorry I don't know who did but if it was you please message me so I can give you credit! This is sooo cute I had to share this with you all! I absolutely love punch art so when I saw this I had to get a quick pic of it at leadership! The stamp set used was the P.S. I love you from the occasions mini catalog.
I'm having my monthly crop night tomorrow night and my entire house has been sick all week, thank goodness we won't be cropping here! I'm looking forward to seeing everyone but I still have no idea what I'll be working on! I haven't been able to get anything done, ugh! Hopefully next week will be more successful!!
