Gifts of kindness with dots SAB folder

Have had this set for awhile and been dying to use it....I envisioned this card...and it turned out pretty well...I was not satisfied with the plain flower, so added some touches....my class felt otherwise ...the first flower is mine and the second ....the class one...we left plainer....
 LLLLLLLOOOOVVVEEE those candy dots...candy to the eye....lol
this is the way we did it in class.....there is a whole in the middle of the olive oval...and we flipped that piece over and used it for the center....

Happy Watercolor set again.....

The sets in this mini...along with the watercolor paper are to die for....wonderfully designed....I used the artichoke color on my sample but in class we chose the stazon...will show  pictures of that at the end of the post...
 used the rotatry blade that is zigzag for the edges on the water color paper cantalope piece...
 stamped off to get the lighter spots behind the flower image...small pearls....
These are the closeups using the stazon and we used extra pearls in the center of the flower..isn't 
that lovely....
 closeup is bad but think you can see the pearls...and the design....

Happy Watercolor Sympathy card

Love the retro paper for this card...it was a class card and really a simple one with elegance..
 Did a little embossing on the small banner from the framelits and used the happy watercolors set...we used the darker color in the middle of the one and the lighter in the other..most liked the darker center....(in the picture above...)

Valentine treat holder

I did this at Monika's for the  make n take...would be great for a nursing home treat or Easter/whatever
 I used a toilet paper roll and measured off 1.25 inches   and the strip of paper is the same but 6 inches long and glued it on with sticky strip.....
 ribbon scallop punch is used for the handle....and the heart embosslit is used for the front

Valentine box card and a peek a boo card

Thought I would try the peek a boo card and love the way it turned out...using the prints pack from the new mini
 Shows how hearts are attached with dimensionals
 slowly go to open it.......
and viola.....so cool...had too many layers on the inside so toned it down when the class did it....

 Doing some projects at Monika's in Woodstock, Ga....Sue and Jan...wonderful and talented ladies...


 Rebecca came up with this bookmark using our new die and punch and ribbon....
 Gee....I wonder why Diane doesn't get everything done on time...such a funny and good friend....."What do we do now?"   lol
 This is the box card that I came up with for my sweetie, Papi...



 This is another of the same but different attachments on a one on one swap....



 This was my swap at Diane's......used the gold encore ink with a used/old blender pen to color the flowers...



 This is Papi's book for Valentine's ....need to learn more MDS...lol
