Happy Valentine's Day!!

Well, Valentine's Day is finally here! Did you get to use your Love you Much stamp set as much as you wanted to? I just love that bundle! These are the cards that I sent out to our family. I tried to to a pretty 'un-fancy' Valentine card with all we have had going on lately. Unfortunately, as much as I would love to spend all my free time stamping, cleaning (old and new house), packing and other house work gets in the way. Anyway, here is the V-Day card my peeps should be getting in the mail today. Hope you enjoy!

Fifth Avenue Birthday

Happy Birthday Bridgett! One of my fabulous stamp club girls celebrated her birthday, well, Sunday. As in LAST Sunday! Eek, I know! Somehow last week got away from me, and before I knew it, I knew her birthday card would be late. I sure hope she forgives me! :)

This stamp set is just fantastic, and I knew that it would look great embossed. This is one of the new items from the new idea book. It also has matching designer paper, which you will see me use with this stamp set soon! Something about black embossed on black is jus so elegant. If this doesn't make you want to emboss, I don't know what will! :)

The sentiment isn't exactly a birthday sentiment, but thought it was perfect for Bridgett! I hope you can see the shine from the embossing.

Card Recipe:
Stamp Set: Fifth Avenue Floral
Ink: Versamark
Cardstock: So Saffron, Basic Black, Very Vanilla
Accessories: So Saffron Ribbon (SAB), Dimensionals, Black Embossing Powder
Technique: Embossing

Hello Hello! Tonight is stamp club, and I am SOOO excited to show off all the great new Sale-A-Bration goodies! There is no better way to decide that you HAVE to have a stamp set than to use it!! I hope you enjoy as much as I do! If you are interested in joining my stamp club so you can make these wonderful things every month, contact me. Or if you want to just come make the goodies, you can do that too!!!

This first card uses THREE, yep, count 'em, different Sale-A-Bration sets. The stamp set (which I at first didn't like, but LOVE how it goes with the the different know how I don't like to cut things out!), the designer paper and the ribbon are all great items that you can earn for FREE!! The hearts are embossed (who doesn't love to emboss?!)! And sometimes you need a card with NO sentiment so that you can use it at ANY time in a pinch!

You can see the shine from the embossing a little better in this one:

And the last one is a candy holder. I just love to make candy holders, cuz who doesn't love to get candy?! Or is that just me....I am a little bit of a sugar high from all the M&M's! This stamp set is a Sale-A-Bration set, and is fantastic for giving away treats!! The bright colors in this new designer paper is soooo great! Inside this little guy is a Ghirardelli chocolate, but you could put any kind of holiday appropriate snack sized candy!

Love You Much

Are you ready for Valentine's Day? Here are a couple of more Valentine's ideas if you are still needing some help!

The first one is a great card if you are giving to someone that it doesn't have to go through the mail for, since you are already using the envelope as part of your card. This is the one I am thinking of giving to me lots of room to write mushy stuff on the inside!

Here is a shot of the inside of the card. Postcard design with a little coloring of the sentiment - lots of extra room to handwrite something lovey!

Card Recipe:
Stamp set:
Love You Much
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Dimensionals, Regular sized envelope, Pink Pirouette Ribbon, Ticket corner punch, Candy Lane Designer Paper
