Happy Valentine's Day 2019!

I love all holidays--it's fun to have something to celebrate and a reason to be generous. I  know my homeroom students appreciate it! Stampin' Up! came through for me in a big way this year with the January My Paper Pumpkin kit.

This kit was designed to make these cute treat pouches. The stamps were so cute that accompanied these pouches: 

Such a cute set. I want to hug the design team!

I wanted to do some cards with a stamping group, so I designed these:

How fun! I cut the boxes so I had rectangles of the Designer Paper and used the diecuts to add the colored elements. I used my Lemon Lime Twist Ink and the stamp set to create a background and add sentiments inside. I love these colors!

During Sale-a-bration, if you buy a prepaid subscription, you also get sale-a-bration rewards, so that's very cool. You can also sign up month by month using my special link: Sara's My Paper Pumpkin Link

Happy Stamping!

My Inky Friends All Occasions Blog Hop: Geared up Garage

Welcome to the Lily Ink Pad stop of the My Inky Friends All Occasions Blog Hop. Did you check out Shar's projects using  Bloom by Bloom on the previous blog? Or perhaps you're traveling backwards and saw Cindy's projects using Climbing Roses? Well, Here at my stop, I am showcasing a couple of manly cards using the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set. No flowers here!

For my first card, I made this one for my hubby. He sold his Harley a couple of years ago, but I think he'll love the humor.

For this card, I used a Pumpkin Pie base and added a 1 inch and a 3 inch strip of Classic Garage 6x6 Designer Series Paper for the background. The Pumpkin Pie strip is actually another 1/4" strip of the same Designer Series paper. I then used the Garage Gears Thinlit Dies to cut out the frame from Silver Foil paper and a Basic Black layer from the largest framelit. The gears are also from Silver Foil. I added some Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots as accents. I left the inside blank so I could write a love note.

My second card is for my Dad. The tool box reminds me of his tool boxes. He used to let me build things and use his tools. How many forts did I create in the driveway?

For this one, I went outside of my comfort level with this sketch. I put the tool paper in the bottom left corner and then added the other elements. I actually really like it--even though it's not centered! I used the  Subtle Embossing folder on the black piece, but you can't tell in the picture. I also added some Clear Epoxy Enamel Dots for an accent on this one. Inside, I stamped "Awesome at any age" and "Happy Birthday"from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set. I like it. 

Well, that's what I have to show you! I hope you like them!
