Love You Forever

Hello, I'm back with another card that we made in class last week.  A very clean and simple Valentine card.  The base was stamped with a swirl from Everything Eleanor in real red ink onto real red cardstock for a tone on tone effect.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Think Big line.  I love those big sentiments.  You don't need a whole lot else IMO with those sentiments.  It is fun for them to take center stage.  I punched a heart out and then ran it through my crinkler for a fun texture and popped it up on my card base.  The photo doesn't really capture it.  I really need to work on my photo editing skills.  I made a little bow out of black sheer ribbon and added it to the heart.  Easy peasy!!!  Hope to be back tomorrow with another card!  Enjoy your weekend.  I am taking advantage of my hubby being out of town and spending lots of time in my craft room.  It makes me happy :)

Happy Birthday Shaker Card

My poor neglected blog!  I can't believe I haven't updated it since August 1st!!!! Well Happy New Year!  I hope you all had a lovely holiday season.

I have been busy creating lots of cards and hope to be better at posting more frequent updates.  In the meantime, here is a card that I taught in my class last week.  Shaker cards seem to be all the rage right now and I had so much fun making this one.  I think I am hooked and all the ladies seemed to have fun making this one too!!!  I started out with Stampin' Ups Celebrate Today stamps and die combo.  This set just screams to be made into a shaker card, lol!  I used Jennifer McGuires tutorial found here:  They are a lot of fun to make and really are very easy.  I was a little intimidated in the beginning, but like I said I think I am hooked and have lots more ideas for fun shaker cards!

Keeping this short and sweet and easing back into the blog slowly.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
