An Open Heart

This is one of my favorite sets that Stampin' Up! carries in their Annual catalog. And...lucky for will be in the ALL NEW Idea Book and Catalog 2015-2016 which will be premiering this coming Tuesday June 2nd around the world!

In my monthly class, we usually create three cards and I chose and cased (copy and share) this particular one from Kathleen Wingerson. I changed one of the elements because I like to see a little bling, blitz and sparkle pop!


Ink: Memento, sahara sand
Paper: basic black, sahara sand, whisper white, sahara sand dsp ( Neutrals paper pack), silver
Misc: black chevron ribbon, small star punch, dimensionals

Well...there you have it for today!

Happy Stampin"

An Open Heart ~ MOJO Mon 396

Today I bring you my version of a Mojo Monday sketch challenge which was posted about two weeks ago. I know...I am just a tad late. Creating this card was so much fun! This is one of my favorite stamp sets, I love birds!  In my mind, I wanted to impart a masculine feeling and I believe that I have accomplished this! What do you think?

Ink: Pear Pizazz, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Naturals Ivory 
Stamps: An Open Heart, Hardwood
Misc: Floral Embossing Folder, dauber, black chevron ribbon, crumb cake seam binding, very vanilla taffeta ribbon, pear pizazz seam binding ribbon, antique brad, dimensionals.
Well, there you have it for today! Hope that you have a pleasant Tuesday!
Happy Stampin'...

Hello Life Project Kit ~ My Way!

Hi Stampers!

Today I bring you the awesome Stampin' Up! Hello Life Project Kit! It is being carried over to the New and Upcoming Stampin' Up! 2015~2016 Annual Catalog! I am so excited!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed putting this kit together and while many of you like the Occasions catalog version, I will admit I am really not much of a yellow person, but PINK, on the other hand is one of my favorite colors! I used the retiring in-color Strawberry Slush. I am sad to see it go...but there is always another favorite PINK...Rose Red!

You receive so much in this kit! Enough to make at least 10 additional beautiful cards!

There you have it for Cinco de Mayo!

Go forth and Celebrate!

Happy Stampin'
