Grinchy Valentine

Happy Valentine's Day!  My kids are getting older and don't really give Valentines anymore and my husband and I have been together almost 15 years, so we do't do much with it anymore either.  So we went a different direction this year and did a family Valentines Day Gift that is not unhealthy!  But... I had to dress it up!

I used the How Sweet it is DSP & 
the Hello Cupcake Sale-a-bration stamp set.

I cut 2" strips of DSP and added a ribbon as a belly band.
Then I added a whisper white stitched circle and stamped my sentiment in Granny Apple Green (looks grinchy doesn't it!) and added a Granny Apple Green fussy cut cupcake.
Finished it off with some bling because of course, my sentiment does say "sprinkled" with love!

Highland Heather Lily

One of the Sale-a-Bration stamp sets is this beauty!  It's called Lasting Lily.  Love it!  It's gorgeous!
It's a stand alone stamp set.  It doesn't need more than paper and a color or two of ink.

I received this card in a swap.  The base is Balmy Blue with Petal pink and Highland Heather.
The next layer is Whisper White.
The flowers are stamped in Highland Heather ink with a little bit of Mossy meadow for the stem.
Add a piece of ribbon and a nice sentiment and you're all set.

You're a Classic

This card was a make n take using the Classic Garage suite. 
My favorite part about this card is the punched circle and layer DSP behind the circle.  It gives some depth/dimension and a little pop of color.

The base is Tranquil Tide 8 1/2" x 4 1/4", score at 5 1/2"
Basic Gray 4" x 5 1/4"
Punch a circle and stamp a little texture on there.
Attach the DSP under the basic gray layer using dimensionals, then attach the ribbon and attach the whole base layer to the base of the card.
Stamp and cut out the car from smoky slate cardstock... add a little wink of stella!
Add a strip of dsp 1" x 4".
Add your sentiment, stamped in basic gray ink on 1/2" x 3 1/2" strip of whisper white.
Finish it off with classic garage elements.

Froggie Friends

I love the frogs!  They are going to be very fun to play with!
I received this card in a swap, unfortunately, I do not know who created it.  
Definitely someone from our Stampin' Sisters Team!

For the base she use Basic Black and Granny Apple Green.
She added a piece of Whisper White, stamped her frogs in Memento ink and colored them in using Stampin' Blends!  Old Olive & Granny Apple Green.  (love that color!)
She even did a little bit of watercoloring underneath them.
For the sentiment, she punched 2 circles, layered them and added a few flies and sentiment in Memento black ink.
Finished it off with a little bling and there you go.
