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 email@example.com 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!!!!
