Valentine's Wrap Up!

Well I have been a bit behind on my blogging this week.  It's been a busy one for sure!  We have stamp club coming up this Saturday and the Birthday Bash Card Class next Saturday.  I have to spend lots of time getting ready!  Here are a bunch of Valentine's cards that I didn't have a chance to post before Feb. 14th!

First up is this pretty Wisteria Wonder/Pear Pizzazz card.  

Stampin' Supplies:
Cardstock: Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White
DSP: 2010-2012 In Colors Designer paper
Stamps: P.S., I Love You
Inks: Pear Pizzazz, Wisteria Wonder
Other: Pear Pizzazz seam binding, Modern Label punch, Heart framelits (smallest one)

This next card was an experiment for me.  I normally use this embossing folder on Christmas projects because I think the flowers resemble poinsettias so much.  I think it works for a Valentine, don't you?

Stampin' Supplies:
Cardstock: Blushing Bride Textured, Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White
Stamps: P.S. I Love You
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty in Pink
Other: Modern Label punch, Fashionable Hearts Embosslit, Petals-a-Plenty Textured Impressions Embossing Folder

Here's a quick and easy card that I found here on Splitcoast Stampers.  It was so cute and simple that I could not resist CASEing it!

Here is a close up so that you can see the scoring detail.  This would be such a quick and easy mass producible card.

Stampin' Supplies:
Cardstock: Whisper White
Stamp: Candy Conversations
Ink: Real Red, Early Espresso (Stampin' Write Markers)

And finally the last card!  I was so excited to get to play with the brand new Blushing Bride Smooch spray from the Occasions Mini catalog.  I love, love, love the effect!!!

Stampin' Supplies:
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black
Stamps: P.S. I Love You
Other: Hearts Framelits, 1/2" Circle Punch, Blushing Bride 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon, Blushing Bride Smooch

Love is in the Air Class Part 2

I'm back with the second project from my Love is in the Air class!  I went for a very non-traditional look for this card.  It's a little edgy and perfect for those guys in your life!  We used the new Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details glitter glue which just cannot be beat for adding a bit of sparkle to your projects!  Here's a tip for getting a really crisp solid black stamped image...use Staz-On black instead of the Basic Black ink pad.

I outlined one heart using the Real Red Stampin' Write marker for a little added detail!

Card Interior:
Stampin' Supplies:

Cardstock: Basic Gray, Whisper White, Basic Black, Brushed Silver
Ink: Basic Gray, Staz On Black, Real Red (marker)                                   
Whisper White A2 Envelope
Stamps: P.S., I Love You
Paper Trimmer
Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details
