Yesterday was another fab workshop with a 'Love' theme. Crafters made a selection of cards that could be adapted for Valentine's Day, Weddings, Anniversaries, Mothers Day etc.

The day started with an easy card from Pixie Pink cardstock with hearts trio from Love You Much stamp set embossed in white onto Bravo Burgandy and punched using the Heart to Heart punch. The eyelet border punch trimmed the edges and a Sentiment from Curvy Verses finished the card.

This card was made from Basic Black and Real Red cardstock. Stamp was from Love You Much set and was completed using the Scallop Square, Heart to Heart and 1 1/4" circle punches. I also had a sample of this worked in reverse with a red base, however as you cannot stamp onto black card, I did an extra layer with black 1 1/4" circle punch and stamp punched from red cardstock as with this sample.

This was the first of two 'Easel' cards. It was good that no-one in the class had made these before but all agreed this was a simple but very effective way to make a different style card. The base is chocolate chip cardstock with DSP from Bella Bleu. The stamp is from Fun and Fast Notes. The sentiment is from Wonderful Words which are a beautiful set but don't think you have to use the entire length of the stamp. I punched the centre with Large Oval punch from Naturals Ivory and a Scallop Oval from chocolate chip. This was mounted with 3D foam pads for the 'easel' to prop up against.

This card was made from Ruby Red cardstock with DSP from retired set Holiday Treasures and Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon. Two large hearts from Love You Much stamp set were embossed with Versamark and clear embossing powder and cut out by hand (sorry SU do not have a punch for this one). Sentiment is from Wonderful Words, stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on Ruby Red cardstock and matted and layered onto Chocolate Chip with a scallop edge border.

This 'Easel' card was made from white cardstock, edged with Versamark pen and silver embossing powder. This was the first time I have used the new white satin ribbon. Sentiment is from Curvy Verses, champagne glasses are from New Year's Celebration, hearts are from Love You Much and punched with Heart to Heart punch. The wedding Day greeting is not SU.

Hope you like this little selection.
Can't wait till next month sneak preview will be showing soon.
