We are almost to February which means Valentine cards! These are so fun for mixing pinks and reds. We all need a little more love this year. 🥰
Good morning and happy Monday! We have two valentine cards today. White paper is dull gloss and images are colored with alcohol ink markers.
Bonus card today!
It is sometimes hard to find the sweetness in life but may we love one another and celebrate the growth each year brings.
For this card, we used the double stitch cutting die on regular white card stock and colored the cupcake with Copic markers. I struggled a bit with the colors but next time might leave the frosting white and make the sprinkles multiple colors. Excited to try some variations!
Happy Saturday and happy stamping!
Cutting Die: Double Stitch Frame
Here is a bonus post because we might have missed a few days this week. 😆 This background was created with alcohol inks and had been sitting in my paper bin for months and maybe years waiting for the right color combination. Glad to finally be able to use it!
Cupcake colored with copic markers.
Cutting Die: Scallop Rectangle
Here is a quick card using HH28 to create a background. We used dull gloss paper for the 4×5.25 piece and for the circle. We used copic markers to color the cupcake. We rubbed the edge of the circle against an ink pad to add a border. Hope your week is going well!
It’s Friday! Here we used an old calendar (from Target) as a background. Stamped on dull gloss but it is a little messy because if the stamps are dirty or have any fuzz, it shows. Important to clean the stamps well but sometimes we forget. 🤪 It makes it look more handmade, right?! Also, important to let the dull gloss images dry before attempting to color otherwise it will smear.
This was a fun card to make and a bit of an experiment. For the background, I used dull gloss paper and rubbed the edges with a light blue ink pad, then stamped rows and columns of the bitty block across the paper. Followed with the circle in green. Thought it was still missing something, so added the orange lines. Used Copic markers to color the cupcake. My constant struggle with the dull gloss is not allowing enough time to dry. Might need to take a heat gun to it! A lot of birthdays are coming up so time to get stamping 🤪, happy Friday! 🎉
Here’s a card to go with the cup we posted last week!
Sooooooo we are off again! Leaving today at noon for the last leg of this journey! I admit it! I am weary! 🙂
Have a last few stamps to make this morning but we are mostly packed! I don’t really unpack. I wash the clothes and just put them back in the suitcase. So they went back in the suitcase this morning and the suitcase went back into the truck…Looking forward to Cincinnati!
