LOVE-ly Stampin' UP! pocket card and matchbox

Wow, it's been a heck of a week............actually, month! Alot of birthdays to be celebrated, stamp club to prepare for, and swaps to create, plus everything in between!

Speaking of stamp club, we got together to create some LOVE-ly projects this week just in time for Valentine's day.

The card layout for the card I created below was inspired by a card I pinned onto my Pinterest board (click HERE to view) and I've actually seen a few cards with the same layout so I decided to go with the flow.

This was a quick pocket card that my ladies had no problem putting it together in no time! I love the Sycamore Street DSP patterns and just dresses up that card so well that's there's really no need to add alot to it.

Supplies Used:
  • Cardstock: whisper white, rich razzleberry, summer starfruit
  • DSP: sycamore street (Sale-a-bration)
  • inks: versamark
  • stamps: itty bitty banners
  • punches: petite label (Sale-a-bration), scalloped edge
  • heart embosslits
  • vintage designer button
  • white baker's twine       
  • pool party embossing powder 
What's Valentine's Day without chocolate?!!! I had to  create something so my ladies (or their loved ones) would enjoy their chocolate and there's no better way of doing that than with the matchbox die. Those decadent chocolate nuggets fit perfectly snug in there.

I've been wanting to use the chalk-board technique so I decided to use just that on this project. 

My tips:
  • use black cardstock and stamp your image with versamark ink. Heat emboss the image with white embossing powder.
  •  use a sponge-dauber or even a paper towel and rub some white craft ink in random areas. 
  • the more you mess up, the more natural it will look.
  • dress up your embossed piece with a white colored pencil or watercolor pencil.  
Supplies Used:
  • Cardstock: basic black, real red
  • silver glimmer paper
  • Inks: white craft, versamark 
  • stamps: my valentine (retired in January), itty bitties (Spring catalog)
  • punches: itty bitty circle, heart, 7/8" scallop circle (spring catalog)
  • Big shot supplies: matchbox die, vine street embossing folder (SAB), heart framelits
  • Ribbon: basic grey/basic black 1 1/4" two-tone (Spring catalog)   
  •  white embossing powder
  •  NON-Stampin' UP!: 4 chocolate nuggets
