Valentine's for Classmates and finally a card!

I finally feel like myself again and my kids and hubby are starting to as well. I still haven't been down to stamp yet, but I have my SU monthly club tonight, so I'm sure that will get my creative juices flowing!

This weekend we put together the treats for my sons classmates. We had a ball doing it and my son really enjoyed the stamping part of the project. I got the idea for these from a Papercrafts magazine - Feb. 08 from the Ask the Pros article. Nichole Heady (the genius behind Papertrey Ink) describes them as what she makes with her son. I thought it sounded good so we gave it a whirl. Nichole said to use tootsie rolls, but we used Rockets instead. Oh wait - you Americans call these candies Smarties. But to us Canadians, smarties are little chocolate candies similar to M&M's, and these candies are called rockets (I say tomato, you say tahmato....)

This card is one I've been thinking of for a while. I got this SU set - Spring Song last month at my SU club and haven't been able to make a card with it yet. I was determined to get it done! I stamped the bird in Versafine Onyx black and embossed with clear detail embossing powder on watercolour paper. I watercoloured it using my aquapainter and my ink pads. The paper is Basic Grey mellow on Pumpkin pie cardstock. I distressed the edges with my Tim Holz paper distressor and added a Prima flower and a Bella bauble. I was a little afraid of this image but am loving the way it came out - I see lots of bird cards in my future 'cause I just love this little one!

These are darling!! My Kindergartener did these during his Valentine's party, but they weren't nearly as cute as your stamped ones!!

Have a great day!
