Sweets for my Sooeet!!!


Valentine’s Day Is Almost Here!!! Who Wants Chocolate???

It’s Wednesday, and since Valentine’s Day is almost here, I thought I’d share this adorable little piggy called  Sow Soo-Eet Piggy (S091) from High Hopes Rubber Stamps! He sure does love his chocolate and so do I. LOL! I’m a choc-o-holic and so is my husband! I can give up many things, but not my chocolate. No way! LOL! And the sentiment Sweets for my Sooeet (G197) by High Hopes Rubber Stamps is the perfect fit for this card.

I decided to keep the card simple this week. I started off with a base of 5.5″ x 5.5″. I used double side tape and added the pretty heart ribbon to both the top and bottom of the card.

The die cuts for the main image are both from Craftin Desert Diva’s – Fancy Frames. I edged around the large die cut with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Aged Mahagony to deepen the red. It was then attached to the card using 2 sided tape.

The main image was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then coloured in with Copic Markers. I left the die cut metal frame on while I coloured the image. Once, the coloured image was done, I was ready to add some clouds. To do this, I stamped the image again onto some Post-It paper and then cut it out to create a masked image. I layered this on top of the pig and Valentine’s boxes and then created the clouds in the background using various blues from Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Ink and a stencil that I created using Avery Elle – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock. I die cut the frame for the sentiment with Craftin Desert Diva’s – Flag Banner Dies out of red cardstock. Then I used the same red cardstock, which I had just cut the banner out of to use as a stencil to trace around my sentiment.  I then used the trace marks as a guide to cut the sentiment out, moving just slightly inwards from my tracing to create the inner banner. This allowed me to have a nice red frame around the sentiment.

To finish the card I popped up the coloured image and sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added a couple of hearts.

Happy 28th Anniversary


Hi There,

Sharing a card that I made for my wonderful husband of 28 years a few years back, but never got around to posting. He’s been my best friend always and continues to be even more so as we get older together. Even after 28 years of marriage, we still never run out of things to talk about. I LOVE IT and him too! LOL!

Here is a close-up:

For the inside of the card, I wrote something special for him.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Used my MISTI and stamped images onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Coloured in images with Copic markers.

Happy Retirement


Sharing a card that I made for a lady that I worked with. Today was her last day and I wanted to make her a special card. I am so jealous that she gets to retire at such a young age. LOL! I hope she enjoys each and every day of her retirement and wish her all the best of luck in the future! I made her drink green, I hope she likes a nice Tom Collins. LOL!

Here is the card that I made her using Art Impressions – SC0653 – Beach Babes.

 

Here is a close-up of the image from the front of the card.

She loved her card and I hope you do too!
