Balloon Valentines by Wendy Kessler


Balloon Valentines by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Balloon Animals Stamp Set (February 2016 SOTM), Cardstock, Ink, Lagoon Hearts Washi Tape, and Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen.

This is such a fun stamp set!  I used it to create Valentines for my preschooler.  I also made enough so that she can use them next year for Kindergarten.  It will be so nice to have these done and just go buy balloons to attach.  This design can easily be changed up with a different animal of your choosing and any number of color combinations!  I printed “Float Away With Me!” on cardstock and added at the end.  I just wrote “from” on the back and had my daughter sign her name.  It was easiest to do this first before attaching the yellow cardstock.

Enjoy the Moment Card by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Just Sayin’ May Stamp of the Month, White Daisy Cardstock, Inks (Sunset, Glacier, Pear, and Honey), and Boardwalk Washi Tape Pack.

I decided to challenge myself to create a complete flat card which is much better for mailing and I also stuck with neutral colors!  I penciled a grid before stamping the squares and erased the lines when I was finished.

CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Embossing is Back

 

11038090_10152807533067934_701388854599683936_nWelcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop.  If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Sheila Bennett.

Graduation Card by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Diploma Day Stamp Set, Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, Cardstock (White Daisy & Cranberry), Paper Fundamentals Basic Assortment, Versamark Ink, Silver Embossing Powder, Archival Black Ink, and Silver Shimmer Trim.

I have been itching to use this stamp set since I got it and I absolutely LOVE it!  I also bought a pack of 4×4 envelopes not realizing they weren’t standard size so I combined these two need-to-use-items to create this graduation card.  The embossing works very well with this stamp and why not combine this technique with the Paper Fundamentals (which are embossed cardstock sheets).  I cut two cards in White Daisy (p.53 in the Art Philosophy booklet) then one additional card in the Black Embossed paper and cut this in half (one for each card front).  Red and black are the school colors here so I added a thin strip of red border.  You can use your own school colors or keep it neutral.  My daughter said they are cute and has informed me that I need to make a lot more.  I guess I can say that I will get my moneys worth out of this stamp set!!
