…for another Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop!

Hello, Stamping Friends!  It's been a little while since my last post; I hope you've been keeping well.  I've been busy with the usual; family, classes, and preparing for another Blog Hop!

Now, just to get you looking forward to the Blog Hop, here are a couple of cards that we made in class last week!  They were a big hit; I hope you like them, too.

This card was made using the adorable "Love You More" stamp set (#131853cm/131850wm). The base is Coastal Cabana cardstock, layered with a strip of Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack (#132996).  A panel of Whisper White cardstock is layered with more Coastal Cabana, embossed with the Chevron Embossing Folder (#127749).  The Red Glimmer Paper (#121790) is punched with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch (#120906), and on top of that is the image stamped in Coastal Cabana Classic Ink on Whisper White cardstock punched with the 2 3/8" Scallop Punch (#118874).  I then used the Full Heart Punch (#119883) to punch out a Red Glimmer heart, and a heart from the retired Punch Bunch stamp set.

The focal point on this card is the cut-out heart in the middle – made using the Hearts Framelits Collection (#125599) – from a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock, which was embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder (#133520 – FREE during Sale-a-bration).  Layered and cut over that is a piece of the gorgeous Fancy Foil Designer Vellum in Gold (#133363), all layered on a base of Whisper White cardstock.  The 'A Little Love Note' was stamped from the 'Love You to the Moon' stamp set (#133143cm/133140wm) and embossed with Stampin' Emboss Powder in Gold (#109129).  Using the Hearts Collection Framelits again, I cut out some of the smallest hearts, and added them as embellishments.  The musical notes paper is from the beautiful Modern Medley Designer Series Papers (#126926).

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
