Glitter Ritz heart

Hi Everyone!  I hope you are all doing well out there in blogland.  Today I have a fun card to share with you. This is one of the projects we did in my Copic card class at Scrapp'n Savvy this month. The focus was on learning to use Elizabeth Crafts outline stickers and Glitter Ritz and then color them with Copics. The process is really easy and turns out looking amazing. The highlight glitter has no color but it does have warm or cool tones. Since it is clear you can color over it with your Copic markers- you do have to be careful not to linger too long in one spot as the alcohol in the markers can dissovle the adhesive holding the glitter. It actually takes very little ink to color. You can even blend. 
In this card I wanted to really showcase the heart/glitter so I kept the background simple- white on white with a script embossed on the mat. The scalloped rectangle is a spellbinders die. The red hearts under the ribbon are also from Elizabeth Crafts- they come in silver or gold and you can color right over them as well to customize them.

The outline stickers come in a wide variety. You can find a tutorial on how to use them on the Elizabeth Crafts Design blog. I did another card for my daughter's birthday that I will show you tomorrow...

Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing your comments!

More Valentines

Hi Everybody!

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.

The second card is a 3 x 3 mini- the idea was to use up scraps. The twine is from doodlebug. A little stickles adds just the right amount of bling. The love stamp is from a TAC set called tag tidbits. The small hearts are a punch and the big heart is from the sticker sheet.

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!!

Love Bunnies

Hi Everyone!
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!
