As promised....

Hello everyone
...
As promised on my last post, I am showing you a close up of the Passion Pink birthday card made with the Love You Much set. Although this set is great for Valentines, it is also wonderful for projects throughout the year - share love with all those around you!

These little hearts are made using the Heart to Heart punch and the Bride Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! This Bride paper is more like a cardstock. It comes in white, but you can colour it by applying any of the SU! inks with a dauber or brayer. Because the swirly pattern resists the ink, you end up with this beautiful design. The lines and mini hearts are just doodled on with a white gel pen. (If you missed the last post, scroll down to see the whole card!)
...
Another completely different card made with the same set is this next birthday card. Created by stamping the heart four times and cutting out to create a big bold flower design.

Notice the hearts on the envelope? They are made using the Hearts O'Plenty SU! wheel - so simple but so effective as a background or part of the design. The clear button is placed over a punched circle of designer paper and secured with linen thread.
...
Now a couple of things that I use for my workshops and classes. A while ago I made a wipes and tissues box, so everyone can keep neat and pretty while we stamp! It had become a bit battered, so time for a new one. I decorated a box using those Heart to Heart punchies again! The opening is a little wide striped ribbon secured with a pretties kit brad.
The next item is my much loved Stampin' Scrub. If you have never heard of one, they are a wonderful rubber stamp cleaner. A quick wet and dry rub and your stamps are perfect and ready to put away in their box.
I decided to use some white SU! rub-ons to make the outside a bit prettier. I confess I am not very good at rub ons - but these went on very well and I love the effect.



So I thought I would end with a splash of colour. I am going to be teaching a Babywipe Technique at my upcoming classes, (shhh don't tell - they don't know yet)! After I finished my sample project, I couldn't stop stamping with the wonderful mixture of Rose Red, So Saffron and Certainly Celery inks!
I had a pile of images and sentiments on my desk, so decided to have a go at an Easel card - my first attempt. I did it without measurements, so I am not sure if it is right - but I have put it up in my craft room and it makes me smile - which is what stamping is all about after all!

I hope you like the projects. Those workshop items will be in heavy use with three workshops and three classes over the next few days - so forgive me if I don't blog until my head stops spinning! Thanks for all your recent comments - they always make my day!
