Take it to Heart

Take it to Heart by Andrea G71

Stamp Club Card

Here is the second card we made at our January Stamp Club workshop.  We used lots of new product from the Stampin' Up Occasions Mini Catalogue on this card.

*  Die cut heart in Basic Grey card stock with Hearts Framelit Die.  Stamp heart image on Whisper White with Riding Hood Red ink.  Cut out and adhere to grey heart.
*  On Basic Grey card stock, emboss one end with the Adorning Accent Embossing Folder.  Place Adorning Accent Edgelit Die over embossed side and run through Big Shot again to create scalloped edge.  Notice how each scallop "arcs" over an embossed heart.  Neat!

Stamps:  Take it to Heart, Loving Thoughts
Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Grey, Riding Hood Red, Twitterpated DSP
Ink:  Riding Hood Red
Accessories:  Hearts Framelit Dies, Adoring Accents Edgelit Dies, Adoring Accents Embossing Folders, Riding Hood Red Pleated Ribbon, Dimensionals

January Stamp Club Card

It's that time again for a post of one of the cards we made at our Stamp Club.  It seems like a long time since we last met in December and it was fun to get together.  Unfortunately it was a small group and many members were missed.  Hope to see you next time!!

Of course I was inspired by a card I saw on Splitcoaststampers.  You can see it HERE.  So, not my own idea.  It is a fairly straight forward card to make just by looking at the supply list.  To help you assemble the frog you can use Tombo White Liquid Glue or a Two-Way Glue Pen.  Here are the punches I used and the number of punch outs:

Extra Large Oval - 1 Old Olive
Large Oval - 1 Certainly Celery, 3 Old Olive
1/2" Circle - 2 Certainly Celery
Owl - 1 Old Olive (the feet of owl are needed)

Other Supplies:

Stamps:  Petite Pairs, I {Heart} Hearts
Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Grey, Certainly Celery, DSP (retired),  Old Olive
Ink:  Basic Grey, Old Olive
Accessories:  Punches (see above),  Heart to Heart Punch (retired), Glue Dot, Dimensional, Googly Eyes, Sponge Dauber, Tombo White Liquid Glue, Old Olive Marker, White Taffeta Ribbon

As you can see, this card can be used as a "get well" card as the sentiment indicates.  Or you can change the sentiment and use it as a Valentine's card. 

This past Sunday, I led a card making event at my church with children from ages 7 to 11.  We made a card using the same frog.  I'll try to post a sample.  Same frog, different design.  They thought it was cute.
