Did you guys have a good weekend? I spent mine playing catch-up and getting things done around the house.
I also took some time to clean up around my stamp area (something I talked about on my Facebook page as I was planning on stamping last week and got busy cleaning and organizing) and decided to take down all of my Christmas/Holiday stamps/supplies and put it all away for next year.
That way I could make room for all my lovey/Valentine themed stuff - which right now is mainly stamps - I don't have a whole lot of papers/accessories for it - but I usually can make my own with heart-shaped punches/dies etc.
And yes still planning on doing a Valentine/Love theme video series. I said that it would start around Christmas time and Christmas is only 6 days away so I better get my butt in gear!
Anywho I was going through my files and came across this card I made a couple of months ago and hadn't shared yet. I made it for someone's birthday but I was in the middle of my Halloween series at the time so I saved the pics for later then completely forgot about it (as usual).
So better late than never here it is now:
Sorry I just noticed now that the card in the picture is completely crooked! I was in a hurry the morning I took the pics as I had to put the card in with the gift before I gave it away and obviously wasn't paying attention when I was editing. oops.
Anyway - I pulled out the Stamping Bella ohsoprettybella image for this card - stamped it onto CCD CQ 80lb white cardstock (Memento Ink as always) then colored it in with Prismacolor Pencils and odorless mineral spirits (I use the Grumbacher brand I found at Michaels, another good brand is Gamsol).
I used a couple of Copics to add the shading around the image then pulled out my Label 9 dies to cut out the image.
The sentiments are from my AmyR Stamps Sassy Sentiments Rubber Stamp set. I stamped them using Brilliace Graphite Black ink onto the patterned paper then cut this one out with the smaller of the Label 9 dies.
The sentiment at the top of the card I punched out with my SU Modern Label punch (the one I ALWAYS forget the name of - in fact I just had to go look at the comments on a previous post where I used this as people always need to remind me - going off to print off a label for this punch right now!!).
*OK label was made and put on punch - check off one more thing from my *to-do list*!*
All the patterned paper is from the Echo Park Happy Days 6x6 Paper Pad. The ribbon is May Arts and the brads and Prima flowers were from my stash.
On the inside of the card I die cut a piece of white cardstock with one of the largest Label 9 dies, and added another sentiment from the Sassy Sentiments set. That one I stamped onto the patterned paper then punched out with a circle punch.
And that was it! I've got some things on the go today and hopefully I will be back with another post later on...have a great day everyone!
