little card set

Isn't this cute!!! This is what we did this week at my class. I made the hearts with the solid heart
punch but I "kissed" it with another stamp before stamping it on the Very Vanilla card. The first one I inked up the wood grain stamp and then "kissed" the heart stamp to it and the result is the wood grain lines within the heart shape. The other one I inked up the heart stamp with Real Red and then "kissed" it with the clean wood grain stamp giving a different look again. You can kiss lots of stamps - it seems best to have a stamp that is solid so the patterned stamp (or wheel) can leave a good image.
The little "magazine holder" was inspired by a swap I got last weekend at the Stampin' Up! Hamilton Regional Seminar. Karen Williamson from Tauranga made them as her swap and was lovely enough to include the template for them with her swap - thanks SO MUCH Karen!!! I did alter the measurements but isn't it a neat way to present a little card set like this or a small chocolate like Karen did with her swap - I LOVE CHOCOLATE in swaps! Actually I LOVE CHOCOLATE anywhere and anytime!! LOL
The lovely Designer Series Paper (DSP) is the awesome Newsprint one from the new Stampin' Up! Ideas Book and Catalogue 2010-2011. Only $20.50 for 12 sheets of double sided sheets 12" x12" in size. There are some BEAUTIFUL DSP's in the new catalogue - I can't wait till my first order arrives with them in it!!!!
Thanks again for visiting - have a awesome weekend!
