Happy Valentine's Day!

...and more chocolate!  I love how the Giradelli chocolates come in all kinds of colors to coordinate with our Designer's Series Papers!  I also love to emboss gold on gold and silver on silver!  It is just stunning!  These are treats we made in our Valentine's class.  I cannot wait to leave them as surprises at my mom's senior living complex.  Nothing better than finding a little treat outside your door to brighten up your day!

Color Fuser February Blog Hop

 

February, the month to celebrate love!  That was the inspiration for this card using the Sweet and Sassy Thinlets dies as well as the Born to be Loved stamp set.  The sweetheart Embossing Folder creates a nice texture for the hearts to be placed on.  The Silver Mini Sequins add a really pretty embellishment to highlight the silver Embossing.  Happy Valentine's Day!

Table Favors for Downline Party


I love to put a little something at everyone's place when I have people over for a meal.  These are a really quick project with a great WOW factor.  Just cut an acetate box in half and create the topper.  Then add one embellishment, in this case a butterfly, and you are done!  If I have a larger or smaller item to put in the acetate box, I cut the box based on the size of what I put inside.

Colorfusers January Blog Hop - Brrrr! Winter!

Happy New Year!  This card could have said CHAMPAGNE in honor of the new year,  but it was a HOT CHOCOLATE kind of day when I made it.  I love the Balloon Celebrations sentiments and they worked perfectly with this card.  And since my birthday is in January, I thought, this is a card I would love to get for a January birthday!

I experimented with first scoring the card top and then running it through the brick wall embossing folder.  It worked!  The card pops up to a stand up card!  I am sooo happy these Swirly Snowflake framelets were carried over from the Holiday Mini!  With temperatures hovering close to zero, frozen silver Snowflakes seemed appropriate!  The marina mist DSP is from the new spring mini catalog paper called Sweet Soiree.  The back of the designer's series paper (DSP) is really pretty also with silver highlights!  It was hard to choose which side to use.
