Now that the Holidays are over, it is time to start thinking about the new year. Valentine's Day is fast approaching and you can get a head start on your crafting by attending the Whooo's Your Valentine Card Workshop this month. Workshops will be held on Friday, January 18 at 7 pm and Saturday, January 19 at 1 pm.
All three cards use the special stamp set available with the Whooo's Your Valentine kit from Close To My Heart. The stamp set includes adorable owls, great background stamps, and fun sentiments.
For this card, a patterned paper with owls on it from the Moonlight kit is used for the background. Add some quick stamping and some Glitter Tape to add a bit of bling. The hearts stamped on the envelope are also on the inside of the card.
Unfortunately, the lighting for this photo distorts the colors. Inks used are Lagoon and Chocolate. Each cardstock strip was stamped with a background stamp from the Whooo's Your Valentine kit and then adhered to the card base. The circle sentiment was stamped and then punched with a 1 1/4" circle punch and mounted on a 2" scalloped circle. A bit of wide Dark Chocolate Striped Grosgrain ribbon completes the card.
While hopping through last month's Blog Hop for the Whooo's Your Valentine kit, I just loved the cards that Helen Onulak created, so this card is "stamp lifted" from her. It uses both of the adorable owls, along with the same background stamps used on the previous card.
Be sure to watch this great video prepared by CTMH which shows all the contents of the Whooo's Your Valentine kit.
The Whooo's Your Valentine Card Workshop will be offered on Friday, January 18 at 7 pm, and on Saturday, January 19 at 1 pm. You will create three of each of the three cards for a workshop fee of $10. Allow approximately two hours to complete your project. Please be sure to bring your favorite adhesive. All other supplies are provided with the workshop fee. All stamps and papers used are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
Everyone who attends will also receive a FREE copy of the soon-to-be-released Close To My Heart Spring/Summer Idea Book & Catalog. This my favorite Idea Book of recent years and has many fabulous new stamp sets and other products in it. New products will be available to order on February 1. As an added bonus, if you place a $30+ order, your workshop fee is waived.
