I designed this card after being inspired by Kristina Werner. She made a beautiful Valentine's Day card, and you can view it here on her blog.
This 2nd card is made with one of Tim Holtz's Stamper's Anonymous/Sizzix stamp/die sets called Blueprint Cupcake, designed by Mario III. For instruction in my class, we're only going to do 2 full layers, but this set comes with 6 dies: full cupcake w/burning candle, bottom of cupcake, icing, candle, flame, and a label tag. You can do so much with this set by layering the different sections of the cupcake. I love all of Mario III's blueprint stamps.
And, finally, this 3rd card was inspired by Jennifer McGuire. I just love her blog! She posts, pretty much, every weekday. She includes video tutorials for every card, and she has a family (including a toddler!). I wish I had her time management skills & dedication! You can see her original post here. She uses notecards a lot for her card bases, and on her card, she used a beautiful shimmery blue note card. To make my cardstock shimmery, I just used the old Perfect Pearls in a Mini Mister trick. You can just Google the technique, or here's a link (you don't have to add a Distress color though).
I still have 2 spots available for tomorrow night's class, so contact me ASAP!
