Here's another Valentine card that I made over the weekend. This time I used Penny Black's Critter Party. Look at how adorable these puppies are! Looks like puppy love to me! lol!
I stamped the images on GinaK's 80lb. pure luxury cardstock in Black memento ink and colored them in with a couple of Copic markers. I used my Sakura Glue pen and Doodlebug's Colored Glitters to highlight the flower and the little puppy's collar. That pen is awesome - it draws such a fine line, you can really get in tight spots with it! To make the dogs' noses shiny black, I colored over them with Sakura's Black Glaze pen.
There are all kinds of patterns and textures on this card - which I love! I used Basic Grey's new Bittersweet collection that we just got into Gina's store. I believe she will be adding them to her online store soon - if she hasn't already. I absolutely LOVE the browns and pinks in this collection!!
After cutting the plain Nestability heart out of a sheet from the 6x6 Bittersweet paper pack, I used the Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder to add some texture, which I highlighted with my sanding block. Then, I layers a scallop heart cut from SU's Chocolate Chip cardstock. These two hearts work so well together and I've been enjoying using them a lot the past few weeks on projects. The little puppy is on an smaller heart looking adoringly upwards to the 'top' dog.
The top panel was cut with SU's scallop border punch and then I took my Fiskars Heart handheld punch to punch out the hearts in each scallop. The sentiment was stamped and cut out with a labels trio nestability - that's my favorite nestability collection to use for sentiments because the three shapes seem to fit almost all of the sentiments I use on my cards.
Here's the inside view. This sentiment along with the one on the outside are from GinaK's Whimsical Valentine and it goes perfectly with all the hearts on this card...
Just a quick reminder that my Stop and Stamp is coming up this Friday, January 16 at GinaK Designs store. Stop in anytime between noon and 6 to make a few cards with me. I'll share them tomorrow on my blog.
Have a great rest of your day!
