January 28, 2022 – Owl Valentine

Dull Glossy Paper, Valentine's Day

Back with Valentine’s! On this card, the heart border on the left was created with A190 Tiny Heart stamp. The owl was colored with alcohol ink markers. Don’t look too close to the words! I was using dull gloss paper and my hands had some lotion so I smudged it a bit when I was glueing the pieces together. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Stamps: E256 KB’s Bookish Owl, C226 Hoo will be my Valentine?, C320 Handmade Card, A190 Tiny Heart

Copic Markers: E37 Sepia, E55 Light Camel, R32 Peach, E93 Tea Rose, Y17 Golden Yellow

Artist’s Loft Markers: E10 Mocha, B2 Ice Blue

The ribbon holes were created with EK Success Vertical Slot punch.

Have a great weekend!

January 25, 2022 – Another owl!

Dull Glossy Paper, Owls, Valentine's Day

Good morning, happy Tuesday and thank you for all the messages and well wishes!

We have another Valentine owl card because it is just so much fun to color. And the books can be colored to match whatever card stock paper is used. Anyone else really into Valentines this year? Mostly it passes without much notice but this year, all things pink and red!

Stamps: E256 KB’s Bookish Owl, C226 Hoo will be my Valentine?, C320 Handmade Card, A190 Tiny Heart

White paper is dull gloss – link here > https://shopec.com/shop/ols/products/dull-glossy-paper

This paper has a high risk of smudging! Use a waterproof ink pad and be sure if you touch the paper that your hands are clean and dry! I love the look of it but really need to be careful when handling because it does take a long time to dry. I’ll even leave my images to dry overnight before returning to color with the alcohol ink markers.

Key to my heart – Jan. 8, 2022

Dull Glossy Paper, Valentine's Day

Good morning and happy Saturday! Anyone thinking ahead to Valentine’s Day?

On this card I stamped the key in pink on dull gloss paper for the background. The scalloped heart is from a Marvy punch but another option would be this heart layering kit > https://shopec.com/shop/ols/products/mini-heart-layering-set-mn-hrt-lyr-set

Turtles – Feb. 8, 2021

Creatures, Dull Glossy Paper, Valentine's Day

Happy Monday! Here we used the triple flag across the top versus on the paper it was designed to go with. Wanted to show it can be used in multiple ways!

Click on links below to order.

Stamps: EE72 Turtle, A190 Heart, F235 Triple Flag, F260 Love is Banner, A239 Speech Bubble

Below is what we used to create the splatter background. Put a few drops on a paint brush and tap glass container with brush over the paper. We use another piece of scrap paper to cover the container to prevent splatter on the surrounding area.
