Sun City Papers 'N Pixels Club

The February Make-it-and Take-It workshop for the  Sun City Papers 'N Pixels Club was taught by members Jeanine and Priss.  The project was Money Tuxedo shirt card-fronts, and they just came out cuter than CUTEST!  

The paper and circle bead elements I used for this layout are from Snickerdoodle Designs by Karen's Hearts and Flowers Mini kit.

Happy Hello

This sweet card uses SU Hello You thinlits, Island Indigo paper, and SU's All Abloom DP for this cutaway Birthday Card. The Little graphics (Magnolia stamps) are colored with Staedtler Ergo Soft Aquarell pencils and a brush of Wink of Stella gold on the daisy and red Stickles for the little sending your a heart-hug graphic.  Inside ovals are cut with SU Ovals Collection and Spellbinders oval scallops.  The birthday sentiment is stamped from SU Sassy Salutations.

Peek A Boo Card

This adorable project was inspired by Norma Lee at Splitcoast Stampers in the Wednesday Tutorial posted Feb 18,  2015.  I used papers for the inside and the card front cut from papers and elements found in Karen Schulz new "Follow your Heart" kit.  I used SU ovals for the window cuts, and Labels 18 (S4-310) by Spellbinders for the oval frames. The graphics are little Tilde's from Magnolia Stamps collections colored with colored pencils and finished with  Gamsol.  Papers are Island Indigo by SU and Red River Paper Polar Matte for the printed designer papers.  The slide-out Peek a Boo on this card is just SO cute, as the daisy she offers turns into a hug and a heart for the recipient as the card is opened.

Bekka's pretty Boxes

This beautiful notecard holder box was part of a series of decorative boxes inspired by Bekka at Amazing Paper Grace during project posts and videos  around January 22, 2015.  The Gate die (the gold paper) is by Spellbinders, S2108, and the box lid is cut from Spellbinders Labels 27  S4-376 and fitted to the long narrow box.  Note cards that are 2 1/8 inches wide, and topped with the gate die ornaments are inside the  5 3/8 inches tall and 2 3/8 inches wide and deep box.  Each project Bekka had in this series of three was just beautiful.  The pearl button closure was created with a gold punched shape (SU) and large pearl.

Scattered Valentine

I used Real Red papers and ink by SU to stamp Seasonally Scattered Love stamp for this Valentine. The hearts are cut from holographic paper using Sizzix Hearts #657561 dies.  The edge hearts are SU Textured Impressions Adorning Accents.  The red heart and letters are touched with Wink of Stella Clear.  I also used Perfect Layers rulers, Best Glue Ever and Tim Holtz edge distresser to finish this card.

Another card created with  Seasonally Scattered hearts stamp that is embossed with white ultra fine detail embossing powder on pink, beige and brown DP. This is layered onto SU Crumb Cake cut and ready pre-folded cardstock..  The little hearts are from SU Hearts sizzlits, and the "u" is cut from SU Label Card die set. The lattice heart is cut from Martha Stewart lattice hearts edge punch. The edges are burnished with  Tim Holtz Festive Berries distress ink, and the papers, stitched ribbon  and rhinestones are from my stash.
