I became a SUDSOL member when I first joined Stampin' Up! last year and have found it an invaluable resource! The patterns library alone is worth EVERY penny! These days, you can find me hosting the Chat and Challenge twice a month, where we chat in our very own chat room and make cards based on sketches or inspiration. Need a class in a hurry? Just access the Class and Workshop Planners. Demonstrators like to share, so you'll find LOTS of information there. Need a flyer for a special event? I'll bet one of the demonstrators on SUDSOL has created one already - just check out the Advertising and Marketing section! I invite you to check out SUDSOL for a FREE 2 week trial membership! Just click here to give it a try!
My cards for this blog hop feature what else but VALENTINES! It's that time of year after all! These are perfect for kids to take to school because they are "love note" size - 3" X 3".
The first card uses no stamps at all, but is nonetheless SUPER cute!
I cut my piece of Real Red Cardstock to 3" X 6" and folded it in half. I added a piece of Love Impressions Designer Series Paper and a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to which I adhered three little glimmer hearts.
A Basic Rhinestone adds a little bit of dazzle to the DSP and I finished off the card by punching a tag from another piece of Love Impressions DSP and attaching it with a piece of white twine.
My second card uses the "LOVE" stamp from the set "XOXO". I stamped the image on Whisper White using Real Red Ink and punched it out using my 1 1/4" circle punch. It was matted on a piece of Real Red Cardstock punched with the 1 3/8" circle punch and then matted again on Pink Pirouette Scalloped Circle.
I added some glimmer paper at the bottom of the card for a little bit of bling. The cards are being made by my DD and her friends and what teenage girl doesn't like a little bling?
My third card uses the hugs and kisses stamp from the "XOXO" set. This time, I stamped it in Versamark Ink on Real Red Cardstock and embossed it using White Embossing Powder.
My "detail" comes from some Real Red Designer Series Paper with torn edges.
Recently, I was on the SUDSOL design team - what an HONOUR! You can check out all my cards in my SUDSOL gallery here.
