I Love Chocolate!

I love chocolate, especially when it comes packaged in such cute containers. Everyone knows I LOVE chocolate!  These are two treats I received from my team members Carol Mitchell-Cusick and Bethany Crummett.  

Valentine's Day Treat Holders Jeannine Tarrio

Carol's is the matchbook that holds a bag of M & M's and Bethany the Heart box that unties to reveal the wrapped chocolates inside. Yum, Yum. Thanks, ladies!


Bloomin’ Love is in the Air

Here are two more cards from my Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Love Bundle card class:

Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Love Jeannine Tarrio

This one has a vintage feel and was the favorite of most attendees.


#Bloominlove, Stampin' Up! Jeannine Tarrio Maine

This one is more monochomatic with just pinks and the pearls added the perfect embellishment for the flowers.

Did you watch the video on my previous post?  Brandy gives you tips on using this bundle.

Bloomin’ Love Class Cards and Box

Here is one of the cards we made at my Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Love Bundle Class last week. Everyone had fun learning how to use the new Stampin' Up! Die Brush set, Precision Plate and the beautiful Bloomin' Love Bundle.

If you look close you can see the subtle sponging I used on the card edges. Look how the die brush removed every bit of the cut outs. This would make a great Anniversary card, Birthday card, or Valentine's Day card.

Happy Valentine’s Day

The three items in today's post was created by my Maine Stampers team member Carol Cusick.
This was Carol's shoe box swap that we all made.  Don't you just love the bling.  Carol used Stacked with Love paper stack, Bow Builder Punch, and Stampin' Up"s Sweetheart Punch to create this  card.

The tag below was made by Carol with  the One Tag Fits All stamp set.  I attached it to a Whisper White card that I ran through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder.

Wood You Be Mine?

Stampin' Up! created a fun Valentine's stamp set with their Wood You Be Mine? stamp set.  Sort of reminds me of Paul Bunyan, just need Babe the blue ox. I digress, let's get back to the fun elements of this stamp set. There is the woodsman of course,  an ax, a two-man buck saw, a wood slab, pine trees, and 3 sayings.  Below is a card which I created for my Bordering Blooms Background class last week.

Did you spot where I used one of the Bordering Blooms stamp? Yes, I used it to create the "brush" left over from cutting up the tree. Also, how do you like my stump? We have always had one to split wood  for our fireplace or wood stove.

Hope you are staying warm today, especially if you are in New England!
