With All My Heart Shaving Cream Valentine

One of my friends requested I do a card with the shaving cream technique for her next party. Since Valentine's Day is soon approaching, I thought this would be a fun Valentine to create. I used Stampin' Up!'s new With All My Heart clear mount set and the Stampin Up's new Scallop Trim Border punch. If you have never tried the shaving cream technique I have step by step instructions my customers.

Whimsical Friends Box with Kite

This is another card I created for SCS Wicked Challenge for Stampin' Up! demonstrators. The box is based on the Fabulous Friends project which you can access when you shop the online catalog! In case you didn't notice when shopping online, you can access over a hundred projects and then click to see all the materials used.

I made the basic box and added Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Paper to the top that I punched with the new Scallop Trim Border Punch which you can get for free (with a $50 purchase) during Sale-a-bration! Next I hand cut a kite shape and folded to make it pop off the box, added the kite "string" using the new Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch and tail using a piece of ribbon and the mover & shapers Heart and the full heart punch to complete this box.  Wouldn't your friends like to receive a gift packaged in this box?

Life happens Love helps

This is another card on the way to my sister in Virginia. I used the Designer Series Paper from the Sweet Pea Paper Stack. I love the variety of the colors in the paper stack (see my previous post for a list of colors). I used the paper itself as the major part of this card. I added a 5/8" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon at the top and stamped the saying "You're never more than a thought away." on a piece of cardstock punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. At the very bottom I stamped "Life happens. Love helps." from Stampin Up's Vintage Vogue set in the Occasions Mini.

Heart Window Card

I saw a card on the Stampin' Up! demo web site which was created by Cindy Russell. I loved the simplicity of it and this is my version of Cindy's card.  I used the same colors, stamp and layout, however, I changed the punch to our new scallop trim border punch and added the layer of designer series paper.  Check out the bling in our new Sending Love Specialty paper adds to this simple design. All the papers in this pack have a "glittery design" on one side of each piece.  You truly have to hold the paper in  your hand to see how gorgeous they are as well as the subtle details such as 4 overlapping hearts that become the flowers of some designs. I hope you can see the bling in the close up of details below.
