Here are two more cards we made in my Stamped with Love class last week. Both use the same We R Memorykeepers "Love Struck" line- so cute!
The first one is a wiper card- you can see from the top picture that when you pull it open a cupid pops out the top. The cupid and embellishments are from the coordinating sticker sheet. One helpful tip- dust the back of any sticker with talc to nutralize the sticky. In this card the cupid would get stuck inside if he was still sticky.
Last... We made a candy box out of one of the small clamshells that TAC used. Mailing address labels are the perfect sized to fit around a Hershey's nuggets and four will fit in the clamshell. I stamped the labels with Valentiny stamps then put them in the box. I made a belly band for the box with an embossed heart, ribbon, love you tag and lots of stickles, To finish it off I added ribbons to the top. I'm going to make more of these for some of my friends at church... too cute and so easy!!

I'm finally back from the abyss that is the holidays...I had a wonderful Chrismas spent with family and friends and a great New Year's Eve. I'm excited because I am back teaching at Scrapp'n Savvy again. I had to take a few months off for health reasons but I am doing much better and ready to get back into life and for me that means teaching and creating. I had my first class last week and we made some adorable cards and projects. I'll show you all of them but I still have to take pictures of the rest, however, I do have one ready to show you. The adorable bunny stamp is from a stamp company out of England called Lily of the Valley. I absolutely love their images and ordered their A5 sheets which have a selection of some of their more popular stamps. I had no problems ordering from them and will be purchasing more soon.
The card is made from piecing together pattern paper from We R Memory Keepers "Love Struck Line." I used the telescoping technique for the image...stamping it three times and punching out a spotlight area in two different sizes of squares to stack on eachother. The ladies in class really enjoyed learning thi technique. The image is colored with Copics and a little bling is added with a Stardust Gelly Pen. A few pink pearls and some ribbon and you've one cute card! I made a second version of the card for my daughter who serving a mission for my church in Los Angeles. I added the sentiment we love you to her card.
I'll be posting the other projects soon so hang in there with me. I hope you have a great weekend!
