LOVE YOU MUCH

Hi all!!! It felt soooo good to spend some time in my stamp room - I just adore having no commitments other than hanging out in my jammies stamping my little heart out!! I worked on class projects yesterday and want to share a couple of the cards we are going to make in my upcoming card class. They use all new products available in the upcoming SU! catty coming out on January 19th - whoohooo!!! I am very excited about this catalog - SU! always has such FUN new products!!! And, what makes the products I used so cool is that the Love you Much Bundle that has the stamps, dsp, and the heart punch is available until the 31st of January at 20% off - whoohoo!!! Not only do you get a sneak peek, you can buy it before the catty comes out!! If you are interested in purchasing this bundle, contact me! So, the first card is pretty simple - I did use my Heart to Heart punch, I love it!! I also made a flower out of the other stamp by stamping it three times on three different color card stock, and punching each piece out - how cool is that, it fits the punches we already have! I also lifted the small pink heart in the center a bit for the pic so you can see that is also popped up - the dimension looks great IRL! I added some hardware to this card - I was feeling like it was missing something, I am not sure my mojo is at full strength....but this is what I came up with! This second card uses the same stamps and dsp but has a different layout altogether. For this one, I made a pocket on the front of the card, decorating the card stock with the hearts stamp. Then, I created a tag that can be removed and added to a gift if desired. I was pretty pleased with this one - I mean, hey, I got to use a jumbo eyelet and that always makes me happy, lol! Here is a pic of the card with the tag removed - I think it is a nice touch, especially if you are giving the card with something, you have a coordinating tag and the card still looks fine without it! Let me know what you think- this is also one of the cards I was thinking of doing in my upcoming class. So, here are my first two Valentines projects with several more in the works. I will share some more tomorrow but for now, I am going to leave you with the recipe and run to the grocery store and to Target. Then, back to stamping!! Have a fabulous day!
