Good morning! Hope you had a great weekend. I had my first "official" downline meeting on Sunday since my promotion to Manager! We had fun and did a GREAT project that they will be able to use in their classes. Since I’m also doing the project in a future Stamp Camp, I won’t show it here right now…(sorry!)
I will show you a card made with Polka Dot Punches, one of the free sets you can get with any $50 Stampin’ Up! purchase! I used the heart for my Shamrock card a couple days ago, but I also made a Valentine for my hubby.
This card was one of the challenges I did with my friend, Lisa. We had a sketch (sorry I can’t find it right now!) to use. I started with a base card of Pink Pirouette. Then I ran my polka dot designer paper from Candy Lane thru the swirl Texturz plate (can you see the detail in the background?) You can really see this better in person. I cut a strip of Riding Hood Red and wrapped some Pink Taffeta ribbon around it, then stamped Love You from Short & Sweet stamp set. I added a strip of Pink Pirouette under it that I punched with the new Eyelet Border punch. Next I added some striped designer paper from Candy Lane and layered it on Close to Cocoa, also using a piece of the Pink Pirouette Eyelet Border cardstock. I stamped the heart with Riding Hood Red on Pink Pirouette and punched it with our new large Heart punch and layered it onto the Riding Hood Red 1-3/4 circle for more definition. I like that look! Love the card and I know my hubby will, too!
I’ve a busy week getting some design work done and a card swap, plus the rest of my Valentine’s made and shipped off! Then two classes out of town (rescheduled from the snow storm we had a couple weeks ago!) Whew!!!
