HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY to everyone … thanks for popping by to see this week’s blog hop.
Sorry that I missed joining in last week but I am very pleased to be back for today because we are featuring the perfect suite of Stampin’ Up!® for making cards and projects for someone you love – PAINTED WITH LOVE.
I made this card for a work get-together that I hosted last Tuesday, after school finished … this is the second time I’ve held a Valentine’s card making activity for my colleagues to join in.
Here’s a photo of two teachers making their cards … Luke actually made a birthday card, for his partner, as well.
The card was so quick and easy to make, which was great for my mixed ability group … and they loved the way the small heart sentiments linked the card to the envelope … ‘I’m yours’ … ‘Always’.
The second card … which is even easier … was a great way for me to use up the hearts that we had cut out to create the raised card front for the first card. Several loops of gold metallic thread and some pearl basic jewels coloured using a Stampin’ Blends marker made a basic card so much prettier.
I don’t often stamp a sentiment onto Designer Series Paper … but I really liked the effect for this super simple card … definitely worth trying more often.
I have included a product list for you to see what I used to create these cards … I also used my Bigshot, which always sits on the bench beside me when I’m paper crafting … I cannot live without it [actually I have more than one].
If you do not already have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator to order your products through, I would love to help you out. Contact me for more information.
