We Blend Well… Together

Valentine's Day

As I sit to write about today’s card I taste cinnamon with a bold rich taste of love.  =)  Yes, it’s simple black ink, but the real red card stock for the card base literally jumps out at you.  Why do I think that?  Because the base of the card is like the foundation it is strong and will endure the test of time when it’s blended.

This card is a unique 5-1/2″x5-1/2″ in size.  I made it this big because I’m going to demonstrate how to make your own envelope at a workshop using the Envelope Punch Board, which is one of my favorite tools Stampin’ Up! has made available to us.  You can see the how to use it video here.

Bee Mine

Valentine's DayI have seen many variations of this card, but the one is mine.  I have loved the nesting framelits we have and the hearts are my all time favorite.

The cut outs remind of the times when I was in grade school and I would hold a piece of paper in half and use my thumb as a guide to make a heart cut out.  Did you ever do that?

What a great memory… I’m just glad I can now use Stampin’ Up!’s heart framelits and get a perfect cut out each and every time! =)

Valentine's DayI performed just a wee bit of tape surgery on the bee to separate it from the word “mine.”  I do not own the Crushed Curry Stampin’ Marker, so I had to tape up the heart while stamping it with the ink pad.

The Real Red Stampin’ Marker was used to line in the heart.  Adding a rhinestone finished it off.  Quick and Easy card, yet classy and perfect for your perfect Valentine.

My Paper Pumpkin


I have already ordered My Paper Pumpkin for February and since I saw with my own eyes what the kit looks like I’m beyond excited to be getting it in the mail today.  I will put a least one card together and show it to you soon.
