Technique Class Projects -cont'd

Sandra and Deb Forguson enjoyed our technique class
as we started out on NEW Occasions series!

I got this sketch from the Saturday 411 Operators using the Love Impressions DSP and the DSP from the Filled with Love Bundle.
Card: 5 1/2 x 51/2 base whisper white
CS: Ridinghood Red, White, Gray
Stamps: Word Play (IBC), Valentine Defined (OCM pg. 9 #121941 $26.95)
Ribbon: White Satin ribbon
Techniques:Stamped the heart with cherry cobbler craft ink and heat embossed with cut out the heart and then punched out a gray Full Heart punch put it on a dimensional for a little 3D effect. Heat embossed the sentiment from Word Play in black craft ink and black EP
Now when you have a top heavy card you must really gussy up the inside of the card to even the weight or it will topple over...ask me how I know???LOL
so I used my Scallop envelope die cut and made an envelope used DSP on the lip trace it and trimmed it to fit. Then I cut out a glitter heart with my heart

I absolutely love this technique with scrunching the ribbon. You just apply sticky strip to the back of satin ribbon and fold it back and forth. then do the duck tail dance when you cut your ribbon and your good! (I taught my customers a lil dance to help them remember how to cut their ribbon this way, one actually admitted to doing it at home while stamping and I think her husband caught her, I bet she had fun explaining that technique! LOL We have so much fun!
Love this case from Mary Fish at
New Occasions:
Nature Walk stamp set, Botanical Gazette DSP, Cherry Cobbler, Espresso,Old Olive
and a pack of Vintage brads and you are good to go!
Sentiment is from Elements of Style.
