Happy Galentine's Day

Here is my third and last card for my January Card Class. This is a perfect Valentine for your special Girl Friends.

The main image here is from the Fun Stampers Journey ATS Stamp called "Hey Girl". The Sentiment is also in this set. 
This stamp is so versatile. I made another card just like this but cut off all of the mail flying out of the back and made the sentiment say Happy Birthday. 
She's got a cute little package in her front basket like she's on her way to a party. 

So much dimension added to this card. 

The cardstock in the far ground is Rustic Rose Cardstock. The next layer is whip cream cardstock where I sponged over it with a Light Blue Pan Pastel. 

The City Scape is an FSJ Die called Hero City. It was meant to go with all of the fabulous Super Hero Stamps in their catalog, but makes a perfect background for this stamp. 

The Sun is from "My Sunshine" Die Set. 

I took a small strip of Black Licorice Cardstock and dry embossed it with the Diamond Netting Embossing Folder for some added texture. 

The image was colored in with FSJ Color Burst Colored Pencils.

LOVE, Wedding, Anniversary or Valentine Card

Here is the second of three cards for my January Card Class. The focus this month is on LOVE.

The card is layered with Rustic Rose & Whip Cream Cardstock. The back panel of Whip Cream was Dry embossed using the Love Stripes Embossing Folder. 

I then used the Pocket Cuts Piercing Die to embellish around the whip cream cardstock and stamped the Love Block ATS Stamp with a Clear Embossing Pad and Copper Embossing Powder. 
I then used Rustic Rose and Limeade Splash Liquid Colors to color in the flowers and leaves.

I then added tiny drops of White Nuvo Crystal Drops and Nuvo Ruby Slippers Glitter Drops to enhance the flowers. 

The finishing touch was to make a Bow using White Organza Ribbon and heating it to slightly melt and crinkle the ribbon.

Happy Valentines Day

Happy New Year and welcome to 2019!

Here is the first of three cards my classes will be making this month. It was difficult for me to get out of the Christmas Card mode. 

I started by Dry embossing the front of a Whip Cream Card front using the "I Heart" Embossing Folder. 

I die cut The "Cascading Hearts" Die with Candy Apple Cardstock and glued this to the front of the card.

I love these "Lace Hearts" Dies from Spellbinders. I cut one out using Bubblegum Cardstock. Then, using Candy Apple Cardstock and the Heart Felt Dies and Piercing Dies, I cut a small red heart. 

The small pink Hearts were made with Bubblegum Cardstock using the "Love Is" punch Cartridge. This punches all three sizes of the small hearts. I then coated the three small pink hearts with "Moon Stone" Nuvo Glimmer Paste. 

The sentiment was stamped with Cranberry Bliss Ink using the "Love Arrow" ATS. 

A triple bow was made using Bubblegum Twine and adhered to the red heart and the smallest pink heart in the center. 

Finally, I added three "Pink World sequins" to the Lace Heart. 
Then used the Bubblegum Silk and splattered the entire front of the card. That gave it the finishing touch.
