With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I’m sure you wish that all of your friends and family are deeply in love, but, let’s face it, life is not always perfect! So this is a perfect card to send to someone who is having a hard time… I used the stamp from the Sale-a-bration sets called “Patterned Occasions”. I cut the heart with the Heart Collection Framelits dies. The greetings are form “Petite Pairs” and the embossing is the new Honeycomb folder (From the Occasion mini-catalogue.) I used the new Real Red core’dinations card stock that you can sand to see a lighter color in the inside. It works very well with any embossing folder!

Ink: Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Primrose Petals
Tools: Big Shot, Honeycomb and Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Heart Collection Framelits dies, Large Oval punch, 1″ Circle punch, Stampin’ Sanding System

Did you like yesterday’s card? I’m using the same set for today’s card. I also used the new Natural 7/16″ Trim Ribbon from the mini-catalogue (p.20). The Perfect Polka Dots embossing makes this background really classic. What do you think? We could make this card at your next private class! Email me if you want to book yours!

This Sale-a-bration set “Patterned Occasions” is really awesome! I like all of the 5 stamps that comes with it. There’s one stamp for every occasion so it makes this set really useful!!!
Here’s the card I made with the “Congratulations Smarty Pants!” stamp:
I used Marina Mist card stock to make the jeans and sponge some Midnight Muse ink over. I cut the pocket and glue it on top. I left the top opened, so it would be perfect to insert a gift card or some money! I used the Summer Startfruit Stampin’ Marker to do the “stitching”. To make the belt, I cut a strip of Early Espresso strip that I sponged on each side with Espresso ink. I scored a line each side and I used the paper piercing pack to make little holes along the edges, to imitate the stitching.
Stamp set: Patterned Occasions
CS and paper: Marina Mist, Early Espresso
Ink: Midnight Muse, Early Espresso, Summer Starfruit Marker
Tools: Piercing Pack and Piercing Tool, sponge, Scoring tool
