i had so much fun at the show. talked to my favorite people ever my mentor and friend as well as one of my friends who i haven't seen in a year. so here are some pics of my sister work. i unfortunately missed the deadline but i will have a post later on with my work.
i am so proud of her, i love her work and i hope you do to.
i will make two posts one for each card because i feel like it would be a very long post. so let's get started!
you will need:
card stock any color you like (i used red)
things to trace /hand draw hearts or you could use punches if you have them
self healing mat/card board
draw or trace hearts and cut them out. you can put them any where i just did them in the right hand corner because that's where they looked cute to me and you can make them any size too.
cut a piece of card stock to fill your heart holes
and glue in place
embellish your card i put scallops on my plain red card stock to add some interest as well as dashes so it looks like embroidery.
to make use of the card stock in the back of your hearts i put some washi tape to secure it down and wrote xo just so it doesn't look not thought about but if you don't like seeing it you can always just put a piece of colored paper the size of the card back.
volla a valentine in just 4 steps!
i also wanted to share the valentines i did for the fibers club! i hope you like them, they are just variations with the same message.
if i had all the money in the world just to buy clothes these would be at the top of my list.
i think i might even try to make my own version of this sculpted blouse because i love it so much but i can't afford it on a students salary. ill be back later with my valentine diy and pics for the ones i did yesterday.
i say it every time but this time its true i am gonna make a valentines card diy! yes yes its true. i will be making it and posting it tomorrow. but today i did make some valentines for the fibers class sale. yes i'm a wimp i have been in the same position for 5 yes 5 hours and now my back hurts but its all worth it! i love them. i will show you mine a little later on (sneak peek picture above). right now i'm off to relax my back and maybe paint my nails again. mix the colors one on top of each other (because they work really well and don't chip as easy as others.) have a good weekend and keep your eyes peeled tomorrow for my diy!
this picture was taken yesterday trying to drive as you can see we couldn't see anything. but today it got so much better the sun was out (before you guys ask yes i was in shock a little bit) there was no clouds in the sky and we listened to here comes the sun from the beatles on our way to school so all in all a better day they yesterday. yay!
i also wanted to share some other pictures from my phone like prints i have made, perfect cookies, and ducks.
i plan to make some valentines with this i'm excited and i will share as soon as i get them done!
now all i want to do is make a fort as cute as this one and sleep this weather away.
right now i'm sitting in my little house waiting for the huge winter storm to hit. it makes me a little nervous knowing that it might snow rain. i'm afraid that it will freeze shut everything. i've been wearing tons of sweaters i just bought a new one from arie. i have been coveting it since it first came out and i got it half price! yes!
i also got one of the new nail polishes that katy perry and opi made. normally i wouldn't get anything that celebrities endorse or creative direct (thanks lady gaga for ruining polaroid for me) but i couldn't help it the colors were just to good to pass up. i got a light pink (teenage dream) and the gun metal pink (the one that got away) so i'm off to paint my nails and wait this storm out! for those of you on the east coast stay safe and warm
