Valentine Cards for 2009

The first card is for my husband. I used a Stampin'Up heart stamp and embossed it on red cardstock with white embossing powder. The word stamp is from Rebecca Sower's Nostalgia stamp set. The 2nd card was whipped up in about 10 minutes with the help of a heart die set from Sizzix. A little hand doodling and some confetti make it a fun card for my godson. The inside reads, "Barker says I woof you".

Woven Copper Necklace
I found this great book in the library called Fabulous Woven Jewelry by Mary Hettmansperger. Being fascinated by so many projects in it, I chose one to try. This piece is made from copper wire, copper craft metal sheet, and an unused abstract piece from Nancy Curry's class that I did last week (1/09). It's amazing how the two compliment each other. I wish my pictures could capture the shine.

I took a class at Rock Paper Scissors in St. Charles with Nancy Curry. She taught how to make an abstract piece using watermedias. I love how simple the process was and how complicated the final outcome looks.
