Valentine Defined Card - Swap #2

P1050299 
Hi Everyone! Here's my other swap with my upline's group that features a sneak peak item from the Occations Mini which starts January 4th (next week...yippee!) The card uses images from the set Valentine Defined and well as the Glimmer Paper. What I like about this set is while yes, it can be used for Valentine's day, the images can be used for other occations like engagements, weddings, anniversaries, or just to tell someone you love them! Look for the set on page 9. Lot's of little steps to this card:P1050297
Emboss Bashful Blue card stock through the Big Shot with Square Lattice embossing folder.
Punch 4" strip of Whisper White card stock with the Eyelet Border punch. Adhere to back of a 4" x 3" piece of Read Red.
Stamp images with Whisper White craft ink on red cardstock. Adhere 1/4" x 4" strip of Bashful Blue on the top.
Punch heart images from Heart to Heart punch with the new Glimmer Paper. Adhere larger hearts in upper corner. Glue small heart in middle of strip of blue. Glue (Tombo) Bitty Bit heart button over top. Set aside to dry. About 1/2 hour. Glue will dry clear.
Stamp love sentiment on white. Punch with Medium Oval 119855. Layer on punched blue using the Oval Scallop punch. Adhere to red layer with Dimentional. Red layer complete. Adhere red layer to card.
I hope my swap group enjoys!

Happy Crafting!~ Dee

Petal Card Punch Valentine

P1050291Hi Everyone! Last month I added the two heart punches to my collection. The Full Heart Extra-Large punch 119883 and the Heart-to-Heart punch 119881 which punches 3 hearts of different sizes and shapes. (see pp. 202-203 in main catty). Here's my first card using the punches.

P1050293  
The Petal punch 119273 forms a heart pounch when  you fold just two of the sides. Colors of Certainly Celery, Real Red and Whisper White make up the color scheme. Yikes! I just looked at the time and I need to finish getting ready to go to work...check back later today for the steps to make!

Happy Crafting!~ Dee

Update: How to make:

8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Certainly Celery cardstock 105125. Run half or 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" through the Big Shot113439 using the Perfect Folk Dots 117335 embossing folder. Fold and use embossed side as front of card. Tie ~ 15" of 1-/4" 119771 Striped Grossgrain Certainly Celery ribbon around bottom of card.
Cut strip 1" x 5-1/2"  of Whisper White Card stock100730.
Cut strip 3/4" x 5-1/2" Certainly Celery. Layer over whisper White. Adhere to card.
Punch Petal Card image from Whisper White. Fold two adjacent sides to form heart pocket. I used Tombo glue 110755 to adhere sides. I place one of my clear blocks on top to keep together while glue dried. By time punch hearts, it's set!
Using the new Glimmer Paper 121790 available January 4th in the Occations Mini, punch heart images from both heart punches of Full Heart and Heart to Heart. Total 4 hearts images punched.
P1050289 (When I punched the hearts, I took the paper all the way to the neck of the punch - where the paper stops. I plan to use the glimmer paper 'negative' punch images on other projects.
Adhere the smallest heart on the petal pouch. Tuck in the Full Heart image into the pounch and pop up with a Dimentional foam dot. 104430. Adhere the other hearts.

Again...:) Happy Crafting!~ Dee

Joanie's Christmas Card

P1050237 
Hi Everyone! How pretty is this card?! Thanks Joanie....I LOVE IT! I note a few Stampin' UP! supplies and I know she used her Big Shot for the die cutting and embossing. So beautiful!

The Slater side of the family is coming over tonight and I'm almost ready :) I have my 'darn I forgot to get that' list going! Jeff gave me my gifts a little early. When he asked me what I wanted, I said I really need another 6' folding table and some new folding chairs for card classes and workshops. While some may be thinking, 'that's a gift?', it was perfect for me! (girls you know it lol) And it came in handy as I sat up the kitchen and 16 can be seated! and we can all be together. That is my real gift. The Harting side is coming over tomorrow afternoon and the same thing...we can all be together in one room. Love to look around and see all the people that mean the most to me in one glance....Life doesn't get any better than that!!

Merry Christmas Eve to all and Happy Crafting!~ Dee
