Once a month I attend a fun night of stampin' with my local Stampin' Up crafty buddies. Charla is my SU! Demo and she brought these wonderful Valentine projects over the last 2 meetings. (I think I am missing one of them...hmmm maybe I ate it???? LOL)
She had them all decorated pretty, but I was busy gabbing and being the monthly hostess, so I had to finish these projects on the fly at home...and I think I didn't follow directions very well...it's a memory thing! Oh well, several of the projects were made from Dawn's ( Dawn's Stampin Thoughts) wonderful video's here and here.
OH NO! I bet you are sick of these, but I just had to try to make an all Stampin' Up stair step card...I almost made it, but I did have to sneak in the stamp in the middle...not sure where it came from, I have had it for years. Everything on the Riding Hood Red was embossed with SU! white embossing powder, so it had a nice texture.
I made thes fun little candy tubes for part of the nightly munchies. I used a retired tag punch stamp and both sizes of the SU! tag punch and some misc Craft Warehouse ribbon. I bought the tubes from a stamper who had a "tube share" on Beate's Stampin Up Yahoo group. She has a wonderful blog here as well. Wish I had ordered more now...
