Happy New Year!
It's been a while since I've posted and I have been spending that time enjoying the Holidays with my family - I hope you were able to spend quality time with your families as well!! Given what has been going on with my Mom's health I have made a resolution for 2015 to be the year I find BALANCE in my life - can you relate? One of the things I want to do more of this year is crock pot cooking... having a hot meal to come home to after a full day of working is something that I would love to be able to give my family. Have any favorite recipes you'd like to share?
Speaking of sharing, this week over on the Sisters in Stamping blog we are sharing Valentine's Day projects for Fabulous Friday. I created a simple card and matching candy favor using the new Rose Coral Chalk ink pad from the Occasions catalog (I love that I got to preorder this!) along with the Groovy Love stamp set and coordinating sweetheart punch.
I love black and white projects with a pop of color - and pink is just the right pop for a Valentine's Day project, don't you think?!
The basic black card stock background features stenciling with the chalk ink pad - it didn't photograph too well, but I think you can see the hearts from the Hearts & Stars decorative masks. I just sponged using the chalk ink - it shows up on dark card stock!! This clean and simple card came together so quickly and the whisper white organza ribbon just adds such a nice touch.
For those of you who regularly read my blog, you know how much I love 2-4-6-8 boxes (see instructions on this post HERE)! They are super easy to make and are just so darn cute... fill them with some Hershey Kisses and you're good to go.
Here's another view of the set with a strawberry slush background. To see an idea for a birthday card using this suite of products, click HERE.
