A little bit of Love in the air!

Today I have been in the Valentine's mood after checking e-mails and blogs I was inspired to make this card. I think this little teddy bear cupid is so very cute and he made the perfect card for that special someone.
I used the Teddy Bear Parade cricut cartridge for the bear cut at 3". His wings were sprayed with Bronze Glimmer Mist for a bit of sparkle which isn't showing well in the picture. The red heart strip was made by stamping red cardstock with hearts border stamp from the Whoo's your Valentine stamp set using versamark ink. It was then cut and punched with the Martha Stewart punch (I don't know the name of it). The pink hearts were cut with the CTMH Artiste cartridge and stamped with the coordinating hearts from the Whoo's your Valentine set. The Love banner was cut by hand and stamped again with the Whoo's set. The inside was sponged with the blush ink from CTMH and stamped using the January Stamp of the Month set.
The stamp sets used are the Whoo's your Valentine which comes in the Whoo's your Valentine's special kit available only until January 31 with a qualified order. The other set is the January Stamp of the Month and can be bought with a qualified order again by January 31. These are both great stamp sets that can be used in many many ways. You can order by going to Scrappinsweetie's Store or e-mail me at I would be happy to help you place your order. So here's to adding some love to the air!

Cascading Card for Workshop

Hello everyone and Happy New Year! As promised here is one of the first cards that I will be doing as a workshop. We will be creating one smaller candy tube project to complete this class but due to the time and all the techniques that you will be learning with this card I have decided to offer just these two projects for this class in effort to not overwhelm you and keep the class time manageable.
This card uses the Whoo's Your Valentine special stamp set available now until the end of January with a $35 dollar order for only $10 if you would like to have your own set which includes 12 treat tubes, 12 die cut boxes, 3 cardstock sheets, and the stamp set.You can find more information about this special set on my facebook page: Scrappinsweetie's Escape
I will be posting the date, time, and cost in the next few days so check back to book your spot in the class.
