Winter Migration

 This card front uses the same trees from the last post, but with a totally different result.  I love how it captures the silent stillness of a cold night.  I owe credit to Michelle Zindorf for the idea.  She is an AMAZING stamp artist; check out her work here.  A-MA-ZINGGG!

Watercolor Fun!

 For my birthday, my sweet husband gave me a wonderful set of watercolor pencils to play with.  YES!  They are so much fun!  :)  The textured brown piece behind the bird image is made by running a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock through my Cuttlebug embossing machine, using Stampin' Up!'s Square Lattice embossing folder.  I love the basketweave texture it gives.  Along with the twisted fibers in the corner, it reminds me of a bird's nesting material.

Nature's Symphony

This might just be my Valentine's Day card this year.  I am loving how romantic and elegant this sponged card is!  I might try it with a background of French script instead of musical score... although I like how this turned out too.  It has a rich depth to it somehow.  4 colors of ink... Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Cherry Cobbler, and Soft Suede.  Stamp sets used:  Musical Score background stamp, Hand Penned Holidays (sentiment), Inspired by Nature (echinacea flower).  All products are Stampin' Up!  Techniques:  emboss resist, sponging.
I like this even better!  This uses the background stamp "En Francais."  LOVE IT!

Cute gift card holder

 HOW FUN IS THIS?!  Check it out; you pull out the cute insert and there is a place to either write a message or adhere a gift card for someone to enjoy.  How cute is that?!  It's not my idea; I got the inspiration from Andrea Walford at Papercrafter's Library. 
I love her work because she pays such attention to detail.  SO CUTE!

I used the Play Date designer paper from Stampin' Up! along with some red satin ribbon from Michael's, and I love how it turned out.  A great "thank you" gift for those parent volunteers in your classroom - if you're a teacher like me!  :)

Valentine's Treat Pouch

 It's that time of year again, and this time I am determined to do some fun Valentine's Day projects!  This one is super easy and quick, which is all the better for me because report cards are due soon and I am WAY behind!  Just some little Hershey's nuggets wrapped in Avery address labels that have been stamped with the "It's a Wrap Holidays" stamp set.  FUN!  Now I'm off to get groceries... can't sit behind my stamping table all day, I guess!
