Sealed With Love

Hi All,

I’m sorry I’ve been gone for a few days but I have been sick with asthmatic bronchitis for over a week.  Had a class this past Saturday so I will be posting some of the cards we made in it.

The first one is a Waterfall Card using the Sealed with Love stamp set.

This is the completed card. The base is Whisper White 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. The next layer is Rose Red  5 1/4″ x 4″. On this layer using the solid heart I stamped off once before I stamped on the card using Rose Red ink. To actually make the waterfall part you need a piece of Whisper White 2″ x 9″. Score at 2″, 2 3/4″, 3 1/2″,  4 1/4″.  Another strip of Whisper White 1″ x 4″. You can either add eyelets at each end of the white strip or brads, which I used here. The next pictures will show how the four hearts were stamped on a Whisper White 1″ square that is then adhered to a 1 1/2″ square of Pink Pirouette and that square is adhered to a 2″ Rose Red square.

At the end of the waterfall pull down I stamped Happy Valentine’s Day in Red Rose ink. To adhere the squares you only put adhesive on the small portion of each scored rectangle but on the last one, 2″ square with the words sending love you adhere the entire square  to the slide, pull down strip.  Next on the white strip put tear and tape on it where the strip goes and only adhere that square to it.  At the bottom of the strip use a 1″ circle punch only going about half of the circle and adhere white ribbon to it to pull the slide with.

I have a shopping code for the month of February when you spend less than $149.00.  If your order is $150.00 or more you become the hostess.  February code is: PPTPTKQ9

Window Box

Hi All,

Welcome back to Designs By Penny.  Last Friday I had my friend Cyndi over and she helped me get my creative juices flowing again which had been missing for awhile.

Ever since the Occasions came out I had been wanting to make this Window Box using Window Box Thinlit Dies.

I started with Whisper White and cut two boxes. I then cut squares from the Sending Love DSP series using the Stitched square framelits. Next using Read Red cardstock I cut the Succulent out using Succulent Framelit dies.  I then used the heart stamp with whisper white craft ink from the Oh So Succulent set. I had to let the white ink dry for a while longer than other inks.  Then I cut out the leaves in Cucumber Crush cs and used Garden Green ink to stamp the vines on them.  Finally I added a pearl embellishment to comple the succulent.

One hint I can tell you, is that on one of the boxes you can cut off both side tabs as it otherwise makes it to bulky and doesn’t want to stay together as easily.

Here are the products I used to make this adorable window box.
