Black and White with a Splash of Color Card Class Cards

La Vie En Rose paper collection was the beginning of the inspiration for this month's cards. Embossing, dry and wet will be the technique, 

And, of course, we will be working on our lovely Valentines! 

January's Stamp of the Month, Beloved Bouquet (S1601) has the prettiest font.

Using one of the La Vie En Rose patterns makes a great background for the heart cut-out.

Fine White Embossing powder helps pop the sentiment and the simplicity of the card, makes it great for that guy on your Valentine list.

Using clear detail embossing powder makes for a great background for watercolors. The rose and leaves are first created stamping with Versamark and coated in clear detail embossing powder. After you heat the embossing powder, add watercolor. 

Once dried, cutout and add to left side of the oval opening.

Using the Close To My Heart lattice embossing folder gives some texture and add to that the polka dot pattern paper to create the backdrop for the beautiful pink rose.

The inside leftover piece from the first card works great for the next card. Stamping inside the offset heart, white shimmer trim and pink glitter paper adds just the right bling to say 'Thinking of You'.

The last card uses a circle to showcase the small floral image using second and third generation stamping.

Another pink glitter paper heart and a little pixie thick twine, finish this card.

Please leave a comment, so I know what you like.

Holiday Expression goes LIVE

A NEW Holiday Expression Idea Book went LIVE today, September 1st!! And it is FULL of Fall and Holiday FUN!!

Below you will find out how you can get FREE shipping on your FIRST Holiday Expression order, you must order through me.
There are FOUR great Stamps of the Month and we start with Sweet Treats. A great stamp for Halloween, Christmas, winter, and friendship.

Here are to cards I created using Sweet Treats!

I created a Halloween shaker card using our new Shaker thin cuts and Shaker Window Foam & Acetate (Z4310). I used one of the circle thin cuts to cut a small circle in the card base and used the larger circle and frame to create a see through shaker. I cut little bats on the Cricut and added the Shaker Sequins.
And don't forget to do the inside and envelope
Next I cut a large circle with the Shaker Thin Cut and added a Cricut cut leaf frame. The Warm Winter Wishes image was stamped on the inside and a piece of Ruby polka dot ribbon from my stash was added to the front.
