Valentines Card Class

I did the dry run today for my Valentine Cards Class. My daughter-in-law, Jess, came with my 6 yr old grand daughter and 3 teenagers and we made these cards that we will make in my classes being held the next 2 Monday nights. There will be 7 tomorrow and 5 next week. The class went well and we finished in the allotted time so I guess that is a good thing.

I did learn, though, that a 6 yr old is not patient enough to do a class with this many people, or this many projects.

 The first card was a direct case from Jackie Bolhuis;

We used:
Stamp sets: Filled with Love

Paper: Pink Pirouette, Real Red, Whisper White

Ink: Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Basic Black

Accessories: Big Shot, Small Heart and Large Full Heart punches, Basic Jewels Rhinestones, Scalloped Heart of Hearts embosslit

The next card is also a direct case from Glrnda Calkins:
This uses the inlaid technique and everyone loved it.

Stamp Set: Filled with Love

Paper: Regal Rose, Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red

Ink: Rose Red

Accessories: Big Shot, Heart To Heart punch, Square Lattice embossing folder, Itty Bitty buttons, Linen Thread

Next is the punch art of Gretchen Barron.

I don't  have the glimmer paper yet so this is my take on hers.

Stamp set: Bugs and Kisses

Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Read Red, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink

Ink: Real Red

Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, 1 1/4"and 1 3/4" circle, Wide oval, Small heart and Pinking Hearts border punches, Crop-a-dile, Real Red satin ribbon

This was a favorite of everyone. Thanks Gretchen!

 Lastly we used up some of my retired DSP and ran the Candy Wrapper die through the Big Shot.

We embellished it with the new oval punch and a small oval punch from Very Vanilla sponged with Real Red ink. The sentiment is from the All Holidays stamp set.

Next we filled them with....what else but... Hugs and Kisses from Hersheys.

Hope you've had a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by.
