My brother's birthday is on Valentine's day, so had to do something different than red and hearts. He loves to snowboard so I used a retired stamp called snowboarder and lovely as a tree. I cased Brenda Westcom's card from stampin connection and changed out DSP to well worn.
It's the most wonderful time of the year, getting FREE stuff from Stampin up with every $50 you spend.
I used an exclusive SAB set called outline occasions. And of course you know I love using designer paper to get my color palette from. So, I used SAB designer series paper Every day enchanted elegance. I came up with simple easy card adding a little bit of pool party bakers twine.
Unfortunately I needed sympathy card for a friend who's father passed away. Inspired by Mocha morning speciality paper- which is raised velvet... it was a great base to keep it to a simple card. I used the designer frames embossing folder and just cut out the raised oval frame and stamped sentiment and used my extra large oval punch and done.
I have been stamping for about 6 years. I became a Stampin Up demo in September 2006 and love every minute of it. I enjoy scrapbooking, knitting and teaching swimming. I am married to a great guy who supports my crazy stamping habit. I have two great boys 13 and 11.
