Hearts a flutter Valentines card by Stampin Up and me


Good Friday dear Stamping friends.

In about 2 weeks I am giving a workshop at a dear friend's home here in Calgary. We have been talking about it for ages.. Finally we set a date and in 2 weeks that time has come. I can't wait to share some of the amazing and beautiful products Stampin Up has to offer to create that perfect card, scrapbook page and tag.

I am sure everyone who comes will love getting together to chat and create.

This card is high on my list of creating that Sunday afternoon. I will show it to her one of these days to see if she likes it.



Before we go any further on to the details of this card, I just wanted to show you this photo of my beloved Canada. I so love the mornings in the mountains. When were out in the Rockies, I always try to sneak out for little bit with the kids to get a glimpse of all the beauty that is out there. It inspires me in so many ways. It just gives me that little extra boost that I sometimes so need to get my creative juices flowing.

I took this picture last weekend. The morning dew was still frozen and clinging to the trees and it just took my breath away.




The Pals Paper Arts ladies had one super sweet early Spring Color Challenge #152 on their blog this week.

They inspired us to use the colours Primrose Petals, Pool Party and real Red.



I added some Crumb Cake card stock from Stampin Up as a base colour for my card.

It always works so well with the reds and the blues.

Don't you love this Natural wood look. It is the perfect card background for any season.

I loved playing with it. Well, here you go dear ladies. I hope you enjoy my take on this sketch. And I have to say, I loved each and every card you showed us to inspire us. Hugs to you!



Well, this card had to have some bling, don't you think? These little sticky embellishments from Stampin Up do the trick each and every time.

I think that these jewels are just as magical in papercrafting as in fashion.With our rhinestone basic jewels, it’s easy to add a touch of class to your projects in an instant.
