Create your own Valentine Card 2012

Create Your Own Valentine

Saturday at my Occasions Catalog open house we had 4 make and takes.  
One of the make and takes was a table to create your own Valentine Card.
I supplied the basic supplies to make a Valentine,
red or white card stock, ink and Designer Series paper, 
the ladies were challenged to create a Valentine Card using those
supplies plus any embellishments or other supplies I had on hand.
Karen Porter chose to emboss "be my valentine" in white embossing powder,
use the Hearts Collection Framelits dies,
and the3/3 in  Riding Hood Red pleated satin ribbon.
I loved all of the textures Karen chose for her card.

Pam Walker, chose the Best Friends Forever, I heart hearts,
nature walk and ps Ilove you stamp sets.
Pam used Real Red and Pretty in Pink ink and the Red Glimmer paper,
don't you hope your her friend receiving this card.

I was ask to create a man Valentine for one of our Stamping friends Ginny Zellars
who couldn't join us due to a broken leg, so a few of the ladies stamping with me
at that time also chose to make their man a Valentine.
Molly Ross chose to give her heart a little bling and 
a extra twill tab accent. Molly used the I {love} love jumbo roller
and the heart from the p.s. I Love You stamp set
Donna Snider added a second heart with a woodtone look,
one was from the I heart heart set and a custom heart using the 
woodgrain background stamp and the full heart punch

My card was made using the leftovers on the table when everyone was finished,
I sent the original to Ginny to assemble for her husband, I'm sure 
she is happy to have some stamping creative time.

The ladies also got to make a Valentine treat using the 1x8 treat bags
filled with candy or pencils.  We also used one of two tags dies folded
in half and a heart from the p.s. I Love You stamp set with a accent heart 
using the red glimmer paper.

The open house door prize winner is-
Teresa Warne
Thanks ladies we had a fun relaxing day, I think we will do a create your own
card again in the future I enjoyed seeing your creativity at work.

Happy Stamping- Cindy
