Going to the Birds next In-Person Cards Classes



Hello and welcome to my blog. My next In-Person card classes are Going to the Birds! What?!!! All the cards you will make at my next in-person classes all have birds for the theme. You will make 3 cards and the cost is $20 or free with a $30 order. All you need to bring are your adhesives and scissors.

Can't attend my in-person classes but would love to make these cards? Place a $50 order here at my online store using Hostess Code MVJHETPC, and I will mail you all the die cuts, precut card stock, and written tutorial to make all three cards! Unfortunately, I can't send stamped images, so I listed the stamp sets I used in the descriptions of the cards below.

The schedule and the few openings that are available are as follows: 

Monday, February 6th  12:00  2 openings
Monday, February 6th    5:00  5 openings
Thursday, February 9th  12:00 1 opening
Sunday, February 12th  2:00  2 openings

I know you want to see the cards you will make, so let's take a look. This first card is made with the cute Garden Birdhouses stamp set. Faintly in the background I stamped the Drybrush stamp. The flowers are from the Sale-A-Bration set Beautifully Happy. The overlay piece is one of the Vellum Layering Designs specialty paper designs.

Nested Friends Bundle and the Petal Park Bundle are the highlights of this card. The new gorgeous Textured Shimmer Specialty Paper in Balmy Blue is that lovely background piece.

And, last, but not least, is a side-angle, easel card using the Seaside Bay Bundle. I just can't get enough of this bundle and the coordinating paper, By the Bay.

Let me know if you would like to attend one of the classes. Hope to hear from you!

Two-Tone Flora Thank You Card for Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights Winners Hop

Two_Tone_Flora_Thank_You_Shimmer_Paper_Stampin_Up
Hello and welcome to Kylie Bertucci's International Winners Blog Hop! Today I'm joining Kylie Bertucci and a group of very talented demonstrators for a blog hop around the world. I'm so excited to be participating in the Top Ten International Highlights Winners Blog Hop! I earned this honor with my card, Seaside Bay. Thank you so much for voting for me.

The card I'm sharing today features a die from the Two-Tone Flora die set and the gorgeous Fine Shimmer Paper in Fresh Freesia. All measurements and instructions will be available in a free download below. I also have a video for you!!

As you can see from this side view, I decided to cut the die into two parts, to add some interest to this card.

This diagram shows exactly where I cut the die. You have to adhere the die cut Fresh Freesia piece to the Fine Shimmer Fresh Freesia paper, then adhere this piece to the card front BEFORE you cut it into the two pieces.

After you have cut the card front into the 2 pieces, the inside Basic White piece needs to be adhered to the card inside. Next, adhere the bottom of the card front onto the bottom part of the card base.

The only part that opens in the top half.

Valentine's Day Card for the Crafty Collaboration Valentine's Day Blog Hop

Country_Bouquet_Framed_Florets_Valentine's_Day_Stampin_Up


Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I'm hopping with a talented group of demonstrators. Our theme today is Valentine's Day cards. The card I'm sharing today is one my customers will be making next week at my in-person card classes. 
Country_Bouquet_Framed_Florets_Valentine's_Day_Stampin_Up

This card's focal point is the Framed Florets dies, Vellum Basics Specialty Designer Series Paper, and the Country Bouquet bundle. I'll share pictures of the Valentine's Day card, then provide a link for a free tutorial with all the measurements, supplies, and instructions.


The Real Red piece was embossed with Timeworn Type Embossing Folder. The large hearts were punched with the County Bouquet punch, and the Bough punch provided the Shaded Spruce pod stems.

The tiny hearts and oval were cut with a die from Framed Florets and the leaves with a die from Around the Bend. That lovely white paper is actually vellum from the Vellum Basics Specialty Paper pack.

The inside was stamped with the Country Bouquet stamp set.
