Banner Blast sample-1

 

I had a blast creating a few Valentine’s Day cards over the weekend and I’ll be sharing them here with you all week!

I made this one first because I really wanted to use my Hearts Collection framelits – they are VERY unused in my studio which is a crime!  They make WONDERFUL cards – this won’t be the last time you see them in use this week!  I also used my brand new Banner Blast stamp set and matching punch – items I got FREE with my order this month because of Sale-A-Bration!  Make sure you check out the Sale-A-Bration brochure below to see what YOU could earn FREE!

A few hints for you if you want to make one for yourself or something similar:

1.  I cut a small heart from a piece of Real Red cardstock and adhered that to the Coastal Cabana cardfront.

2.  I then cut a larger heart from a piece of Whisper White cardstock, run it through the Polka Dot embossing folder and then adhered it to the cardfront with dimensionals.

3.  I cut a piece of baker’s twine and used Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped and punched banners to the twine.  I picked the entire garland up and attached it to the cardfront with a dimensional in the heart cutout and then liquid glue on each side.

Supplies used:

Stamps – Banner Blast

Ink & Paper – Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Real Red, Fresh Prints DSP

Accessories – Big Shot & Polka Dot embossing folder, Hearts Collection framelits, dimensionals, baker’s twine, banner punch, Pennant punch, rhinestone jewel

Perfect Pennants set sampler-3

I’m quite enjoying the color combination in the Fresh Prints DSP paper stack – Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, Real Red and Whisper White.  The sentiment image is from the Perfect Pennants stamp set.  Can you see the pierced heart around the sentiment?  LOVE that – learned it from the very great Mary Brown of Create with Connie and Mary!  Speaking of them…

The next session of Create with Connie and Mary, the Spring Collection, is happening very soon!  Preview week will start on Sunday, January 15th so get ready for some FREE tutorials to be shared that week.  Visit the Create with Connie and Mary website for more information and to take advantage of the Early Bird pricing NOW!

Supplies used:

Stamps – Perfect Pennants

Ink & Paper – Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Basic Black, red glimmer paper

Accessories – Big Shot & Adorning Accents embossing folder, red taffeta ribbon, heart punch, piercing tools

TTFN!

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday season filled with fun, friends and family. 

I spent the entire month of December sick, sick, sick!!  I had a sinus  and throat infection that would NOT leave despite 2 treatments with penicillin.  it certainly did not help that I was so busy I couldn’t get the rest I needed.  So that is exactly what I did during the holidays – I rested. 

So needless to say, absolutely no stamping or creating was going on in my life during the last month but I did manage to find some energy last week and get back to it.  There were SO many new and wonderful products that had been sitting unopened on my desk for a month!!  It definitely felt good to craft and I can’t wait to share it all with you – let’s get started!!

This card is FULL of wonderful pretty new things!!  First I used  the new  Tea for Two DSP series pack found on page 3 of the 2013 Occasions Catalogue.  I also used a paper doily (page 5) to soften up the background and the wonderful new Delicate Details Lace Tape (page 3) on the bottom. I LOVE that stuff!!  It’s beautifully soft and ornate and is sticky on one side to make it user friendly. 

Some other new products used include Core’dination Cardstock in Primrose Petals color which is textured and sandable – so fun!!  You’ll find this and other colors of cardstock on page 12 of the Occasions Catalogue.  Also featured on this page and my card is a new embellishment – the Designer Builder Brad.  It’s very light and quite flat making it easy to use on projects.  Any image or color can be punched and placed in the center of the brad with an epoxy bubble placed over top the image completing the look.

And that’s not all!!  Here is the full supply list for this card:

Stamps – Itty Bitty Banners

Ink & Paper – Tea for Two DSP, Primrose Petals, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Island Indigo

Big Shot – Bitty Banners Framelits, Hearts Collection Framelits, Hearts a Flutter Framelits, Elegant Lines embossing folder

Accessories – Delicate Details Lace Tape, subtles button, linen thread, doily, piercing tools, Designer Builder Brad

This is the card I made for my sweetie.  Classic red, black and white with a bit of sparkle. 

I hope you all have a lovely day!  Take some time to reflect on who you love and why – then take a few moments to let them know.

TTFN!

Natasha
