On Tuesday night I had the pleasure of attending a workshop hosted by Cera and demoed by Cheryl LeFore. What a great time I had!
The hostess and her mom were so accommodating and friendly, welcoming me into their home and introducing me to the other guests.
Cera's mom prepared and served a delicious meal of homemade soup, salad and cornbread, which we ate before starting our evening's projects. Talk about a wonderful way to begin a stamping evening with all the comforts; especially on a really cold evening!
Cheryl, having just returned from Leadership in Orlando Florida, had lots to share with us. She began by showing us the flyers for the new Single Stamp sets and the 25th Anniversary Stamp Set Releases that are starting this month. We also got to ooh and aah over the Paper Pumpkin monthly kit that is being released this year. Awesome kits! I'll be signing up for these too! I'll be touching on all the other promotions in a later post because for now I want to share the the first of two beautiful cards we made.
Hearts a Flutter Vintage Card:
This beautiful vintage look is achieved by combining several new products that are available in the Spring Mini catalogue. Here are the ingredients for making this card:
|Hearts a Flutter Clear Mount Stamp set 129252 ($22.95) or Wood Mount 129249 ($31.95) on page 11 Spring Mini Catalogue.|
|Hearts a Flutter Framelit Dies item #130159 ($30.95) make it easy to cut out the images from the Hearts a Flutter Stamp set. Cuts a single sheet of paper using the Big Shot.|
Card Stock: An 8.5 x 5.5 piece of Pool Party card stock was folded at center for the card base. The dry embossed area was achieved with the Adorning Accents Heart Folder (125601). Very Vanilla card stock was used for the inside liner of the card and for the two tickets that were stamped using the That's the Ticket stamp set.
Stamps: The largest heart image from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and Framelit Bundle (131097) was used for the second heart which is nestled under the bow. You can barely tell in this picture, but in the closeup further down, you may be able to see some of the detail achieved by stamping the Raspberry Ripple card stock with Versa Mark Ink and then embossing it with the Pool Party Embossing Powder. A really hot look!
You can purchase this stamp set and framelits individually, but if you buy them in a bundle you'll save 15%. That's what I did as I anticipate using this set a lot.
The tickets from the That's the Ticket stamp set (128075) on page 27 of the Spring mini, were stamped in Raspberry Ripple and Pool Party on Very Vanilla card stock. They were punched out with the Ticket Builder Punch from the Idea Book and Catalogue. They are really cute and sure added a lot of nostalgia to this card front.
DSP: A small strip of More Amore DSP (129309) was used for the heart banner and the large decorative Raspberry Ripple Heart was cut from the beautiful Laser cut sheet that is included in this package. You can cut 16 hearts from this DSP. That's a lot of cards!

Some Pool Party 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon (122975) was tied in a bow and adhered with glue dots on top of the large heart from Hearts a Flutter. It really complimented the other elements on this card front.
|The inside of the card has a single heart from the Hearts A Flutter stamp set stamped in Raspberry Ripple on this 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Very Vanilla Card stock|
Well what do you think? Leave me a comment if you like this card. Tomorrow I'll share the second card which was made with the Oh Whale and Rain or Shine stamp sets.
