VC Rocks May's Blog Hop

If you are new to our blog hops, you probably are wondering what VC Rocks is all about.

VC ROCKS stands for Virtual Convention and it ROCKS! This is a group of SU Demonstrators and non SU Demonstrators who love to stamp. We get together every year from April through August to hang out and have fun. The group hosts card and 3D swaps, challenges, make-n-takes, training and a virtual hotel. The virtual hotel is similar as if you were going to Stampin' Up's annual convention and having roomies. Oops almost forgot the pool boys. The only thing we don't get to do is have Starbucks together every morning. This is my favorite thing to do along with hanging out at the pool.

If you have arrived here from the very talented Mary Campbell's blog , then you are in the right place. If not, you can start at the beginning at the VC Rock Blog  here at anytime.

This month's project was to create a project with one or more HEARTS.. stamp it, MDS it, scrapbook it, whatever.. but it must feature a Heart...  I chose to make a card using SU's new Heart framelits.

Front of card

Inside of card


Card Stock                          Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeaide
Dsp                                      Everyday Enchantment Designer series paper
Punches                               2 step Bird punch
Ribbon                                Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeaide from Ribbon and Brad enchantment pack
Dies                                     Hearts framelits

Lace                                     scraps from my project box
Embossing Folder                Stripes
Stamping Ink                        Soft Seude
Stamp Set                             Vintage Labels (retired)

This card was easier to make than it looks. I ran a piece of Calypso Coral through my Big Shot using the Stripes embossing folder.  Then on one half of the cardstock, I placed the Heart framelits on top of  the stripes and cut out a heart, which made a window into the center of the card.  Then I ran Dsp through to make smaller hearts, and my lace scrap to make a medium heart. I punched out a couple of birds.  I put the ribbon together and knotted them every so often and attached to one of the hearts. I also lined the heart with Basic Pearls for some Bling!

I hope you have enjoyed your stay here, and its time to move onto see what Brenda has in store for you, I know it will be awesome.

Mother Day Gift's for my Daughters

I decided this year to take our Stampin Up Kraft boxes and decorated them. Each one is as different as they are. I filled them with some yummy chocolates and some special Mother's Day Tea  Sachet's. The first one is for my daughter Kari. She cannot have sugar so I found some Dove sugar free Raspberry chocolate's and I added the Floral Mother's Day Tea.

This is the whole Gift

Here is Kari's box opened up with all the goodies.

Here is the top with the Flower made with the Scallop punch

The next one is for my Daughter Shelly is loves purple and I think Wisteria fills the bill.

Next is her box of  delicious Dove Carmel and raspberry chocolates and Floral Tea

Now for Shelly's top  I chose to do a satin ribbon flower and put one of our Antique brads in the center

I had such a great time making these lovely gifts for my daughters. I hope you enjoy them as well.
