Nuts About You!

Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and this week at High Hopes Rubber Stamps love is in the air! LOL! This week, I used this adorable little elephant called  Peeking Ellie With Heart – P127 for the main image and Nuts About You – F128 for the sentiment!

The card base is 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4 inches on white cardstock. I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and then coloured in the image with Copic markers. Then I fussy cut around the image only leaving a thin slice of white in a few areas. Where I had trimmed the paper closest to the image, I outlined it with black marker.

Next, after running scrap pieces of paper through my Xyron Create a Sticker, I die cut the heart border using Sizzix Framelets by Stephanie Barnard – 562676 – Hearts Dotted. I also used the same die cut to cut out the big heart. Then I taped the metal die cut and the paper down onto a piece of cardboard so that I could colour the big heart and still leave a white border. Once the heart was coloured, I covered “about you” with some Scotch Tape and then stamped “I’m nuts”. I repeated the process only this time, I covered “I’m nuts” with the Scotch Tape and then stamped “about you” below it. Of course, I removed the tape each time before stamping.

I cut out the red contrasting paper and patterned paper with Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214).

Now it was time to put it all together. I mounted the red rectangle directly onto the base. I mounted the patterned rectangle onto some white cardstock and used my cutter to create a thin white border all the way around it. Then, I popped up the rectangle, Ellie and the big heart with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Lastly, to finish it off, I added the border sticker to the bottom of the first rectangle and hearts that I created earlier.

Happy Valentine’s Day My Prince!

My mom always told me that when I met my husband, I found my prince charming because he’s really handsome and does everything for me. My family calls me the princess! I don’t think it’s quite what my hubby had in mind for his princess, but it works for us! LOL! Everyone always asks me if they could borrow him. Sorry, ladies he’s all mine and has been for going on over 34 years. I couldn’t live without him, he’s my best friend.

This year, I thought I’d make him a special Valentine’s card with a little bit of humour that reflects our relationship! I do help when he lets me.

On the front of the card is the digital image from The Paper Shelter – Prince Charming.

Here is a close-up of the prince:

On the inside I used the stamps from Ai – Art Impressions – 4729 – In the Bag Set.
