Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day:  Group card

stamps:  PSX, Kaiser Craft and ???(happy Valentine's Day)
Die:  cheery Lynn
Hearts, rose and sentiment; were hand cut
versafine black ink
coloring: back one:  (Very quick!) alcohol markers and red ink
               front one:  colored pencils

So many companies have a version of the "post card",  "Nika's in Windsor has one;  very useful stamp!  The Kaiser craft roses, I also purchased from nika's last year.  I use it so much!  Kaiser craft makes a great product!  The die purchased at Nika's.

Tip:  Cuttlebug:
cutting the detailed large dies.
(every machine is different/  and the paper we are cutting are different thickness !  watch the video on cheery Lynn)
This is what I did....(know your machine!  too expensive to replace!)
First cut:  (A,shim plate, C, die, card stock, B)
second cut:  remove metal shim plate
Use a strip of card stock (or 2 depending on your machine)  about 1 by 5";
laying in on top of the "sandwich" around the middle of the die area.
whine it thru 3 or 4 times, moving the paper strip on top a little to the right and little to the left each time!

 (  If I had remembered back from Fayn's demo (Rubber Carousel Stamps)  she did the same thing many years ago!  I miss Fayn, Barbie, Taylor and Dajah !   I loved going there so much!

So I'm ready for "make n take" with one of the groups I am volunteering at!  :)  Looking forward!

Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone has a great day! (cold here!  but no mud!!!  :))
