Exciting Stuff

One of my Valentine's cards that I made recently was selected for the Stamping 411: Stampers Showcase.  How excited am I?  VERY!! 

On another note, I recently decided to take the plunge and become a Stampin' Up Demonstrator myself.  An offer came up that was just too good to pass up. 

I'm going to have my first class(es) on Sunday February 20th and Monday February 21st.  If you are interested in attending please contact me.  Attendee's will get to make 2 cards as part of my Demonstrator Kick Off for the low, low price of $0!  That's right FREE!   The cards will be a birthday card and an anything card.  I will be using the cupcake set below for the Birthday Card!  Come back next week and see a sample card!  =)

More Valentines

So this week I continued to work on some Valentine's cards.  Here are three more of my creations. 

The first was for Stampin 411's Saturday Sketch Challenge #189.  I made some slight changes to the design and love how it turned out.  It is hard to tell but I used craft ink for the heart and then added sticky tack embossing powder before sprinkling glitter over the heart.

Another card was cased from a Split Coast Stampers gallery.  Love the way it turned out.  Added a little pearl accent to the heart and I think it adds just the right touch.

The last card I made was from one of my all-time favorite stamp sets Unfrogettable.  I made one similar years ago and I know I probably cased it from somewhere else.

So I think for now I'm going to have to put Valentine's behind me and start to work on some more birthday cards.  I have several birthdays in late February and March to work on!

A Season of Valentine's

So my dear friend and co-technology teacher asked me to make her some Valentine's cards today.  Upon arriving home I found my Stampin' Up Demonstrator Kit on my front step.  I need no more encouragement than that to get started.  I love new Goodies!!  =)  I played hard with Taylor to give her extra incentive to go to bed without a fight and put her to sleep and then snuck to my craft area and got started sorting through and organizing everything.  I had a card idea in my head that is based on a card that I did during a stamp camp a while back.  I am 100% happy with the results.  I think it turned out great!  I hope my dear friend likes it as much as I do!

I'm also entering this card in the Creative Sketches Holiday Sketch Challenge!

Stamp Sets: Season of Friendship, I {Heart} Hearts
Paper: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
Ink: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, and Wild Wasabi

And as always my area is a disaster still but I feel great! 
Two nights of stamping in one week! Wahoo!
