It's already time for Day 1 of the Release Rewind posts on MFT's blog - check out their post HERE for the links to all the other DT members playing along today (then check back tomorrow on their blog for post #2!)
I made 2 cards for todays post and as I was finishing them I thought they'd make cute Valentine cards:
I created 2 4-Bar sized cards (3.5 x 4 7/8") and used the new Cute Critters stamp set and coordinating Die-namics. SUCH a cute set.
I used the new Diagonal Bars stencil and sponged Razzleberry ink over it to create the background, then stamped the sentiment over it with Black Licorice hybrid ink.
The fox was stamped over it's die cut with the same hybrid ink, then colored in with Copics. I couldn't resist covering the orange color with adhesive and pouring fun flock over it to make it all fuzzy! I potted it up on dimensionals and added some baker's twine to finish off the card front.
On the inside I stamped the fox again - this time with Orange Fizz ink, then used the little "mask" die from the Cute Critters Die-namics to cut "glasses" from Razzleberry card stock. The sentiment is from the Geek is Chic stamp set and totally made me LOL!
For my second card I went more with a "boy" theme, and created a Kraft 4-Bar sized card, this time using the Scattered Bars stencil with Chocolate Brown ink sponged over it.
With the raccoon after I colored him in I only added adhesive to certain parts and covered it with Fun Flock - I didn't want to obscure all the detail by covering all of him with Fun Flock.
The stump was stamped with Chocolate Brown Hybrid ink onto Kraft card stock and colored in lightly with Copics then I wrapped some Hemp Cord around it and tied it off.
And finally on the inside of this one I stamped one of the sentiments from the Cute Critters set, colored in the heart, then stamped the raccoon again and "masked" him with the die from Cute Critters Die-namics and that was it!
