After checking the calendar and my box of completed cards, it was time to make a few birthday cards. I used a new stamp set from Concord and 9th that had a large floral round image. I recently ordered many new Copic markers and this was the perfect stamp to use to color the flowers. I colored on in shades of blue and the other in purples and pinks. I added either a birthday sentiment on the bottom or a thinking of use word tag. I also used the new stamping tool from Hampton Arts that allowed me to restamp the image for a second time. It worked great. I outlined the image with a Gel sparkly pen, added some Nuvo glitter dots. They both look great!
It is this time of year when I look forward to creating Valentine cards and projects. I picked up this pick up truck cut out for $.10 last summer and discovered it when doing some new year cleaning. I added a few cut out hearts and heart stickers. I cut out the ‘road’ from printed paper using a die cut. I even added hearts to the wheels and glittery lights. Almost time for the mail!
I enjoy creating paper projects for Valentine’s Day. I created this paper flower heart using a heart cut out as the base and then made mini paper flowers in two sizes. I covered the canvas board with Tim Holtz tissue paper over a pink painted background. One of my new favorite embellishments is Nuvo soufflé cream and the glittery gold liquid glitter for the center of the flowers. This is my submission for the “Get Square” Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week. Can’t wait to share with my friends. #SSSMChallenge Be Square
It was time to put away all of the Christmas stamps and paper and create Happy New Year and thank you cards. I love this Pure Innocence stamp from My Favorite Things. I included this stamp in my annual calendar project for the month of January. i colored the image with Copic markers and colored pencils. I added a glittered snowy hill and Nuvo drops for accent drops. I created a frame to set off the image. Glitter is my favorite color! This is my submission for the MFTWSC 314 sketch challenge.
