Valentine's Class

Boy it sure doesn't take long to let a resolution fall by the wayside! I had said in my previous post that I was going to try to stay on top of posting by doing at least 3 a week. That worked out well - but then again this is a new week and there is lots of time to do three posts. I guess I enjoy surfing other people's posts more than spending the few minutes it takes to put my own together! Well, I have a couple of classes coming up and some challenges I would like to enter, so here I am posting. These two cards are for my upcoming "Love Letters" class. We will be making valentines of every kind. The "Pink Sparkler" - as I like to call it - I cased from the amazing Northshore Stamper. I changed it up a little bit, since I don't have the red glitter paper that is in SU!'s new mini-catalogue. I did however happened to stop at a big box crafting store and buy all kinds of other colours of glitter paper (currently 2 for 1). I stamped the bottom of the card base with crumb cake and the En Francais, then tied some of the delicious new crumb cake seam binding (occasions mini) around it, layered the heart and Voila!
The second card I used the new letterpress from SU! It says to use craft ink, but this is inked up with Melon Mambo classic ink and I think it turned out just fine. I punched a hole with my 1" circle punch in one of the O's and backed it with turquoise glitter and then popped a small punched pink glitter heart in the centre. I love the way it turned out.

Happy Stamping,


  1. Meg- your cards are great! Love the neutral colors of the first card- very elegant yet CAS. The second really pops with the color choices and love the glitter circle with the heart. Thanks for playing with us at The Paper Players!

  2. Meg, I love both cards. the first one really speaks to my CAS side. I think you did a fabulous job without the glimmer paper! The whole card is gorgeous. the second card is bold and graphic and the pop of turquoise is so unexpected, which makes it really fresh!
    So glad you did participate in some challenges this week - and so glad you joined the paper players for our Valentine themed challenge.

  3. I love both of these cards! The first one is so classy and elegant. I love the melon mambo combined with the turquoise on the second card!
