Happy Valentine’s Day

Sure Do Love You

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are having a wonderful Valentine’s Day!  It was a busy work morning, but I’ll be joining my daughter this afternoon for her Valentine party at school.  She even asked me to bring some stamps so that her friends could make cards during the party (so cute!).  After the party, I guess the hubs and I will figure out something romantic to do this evening.  My daughter offered to fix us dinner.  However, when I asked her what she would be making, she said the only thing she can “cook” is snacks in a bag.  I’m thinking we might just order take out.  LOL!

Sure Do Love You Always

I didn’t make this card for anyone in particular, but I’ve been wanting to pair this stamp set with a fun color combo.  Perhaps, I’ll just add this to the gift shop to sell.  The background features a repetitive pattern of Smoky Slate-stamped hearts.  For the focal point, I chose elements from the Sure Do Love You stamp set and stamped them in Berry Burst, Lemon-Lime Twist, and Dapper Denim.  And finally, to accessorize the card I used a few of the Tutti-Fruitti adhesive-backed sequins paired with rhinestones.  My favorite surprise element is the Berry Burst “fuzz”.  I was working to fray the Berry Burst metallic edge ribbon and this was the main string I pulled.  It turned out soft and fuzzy, so I decided to add it to the card for fun.

Amazing You FMS323

Today’s card features the Amazing You stamp set, Celebrate You Thinlits, and Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I created it for a special friend using the layout from this week’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

FMS323

A dear friend was in a head-on collision near my home last week.  When she couldn’t reach her husband by phone, I was her next call.  Therefore, I rushed to the hospital to meet her in the ambulance and was very surprised at how “good” she looked.  After scans and x-rays, she was cleared with a small fracture in her neck.  She’s going to be alright.  There have been some rough days since the accident and there will probably be more to come, but I’m simply amazed at her strength.  I am so thankful that her life was spared and that together we can continue to laugh, cry, and watch our children grow.

 

Amazing You

The Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper is a show-stopper on its own with the silver embossed images.  I added a silver foil die-cut “amazing” from the Celebrate You Thinlits dies and Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon that has been colored with the light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends.  To complete the greeting, I stamped the words in Marina Mist and Old Olive inks before cutting them apart.

Up until last week, I had diligently been working ahead on blog hop projects, videos, and posting on social.  I tend to shut down creatively when I’m feeling overwhelmed, but I’ll still post some of my now “late” projects this week as things return to normal.

Magical Day Dragon

Magical Day Dragon

Well, this is my final card with the Magical Day stamp set that I’ll be sharing this week.  Although, I definitely think I’ll have to revisit it again soon.  The dragon from today’s card was actually created using leftovers from the first 2 cards.  Once I was finished with my Brusho block (see the video here), I swirled the remaining colors together and stamped onto a scrap of watercolor paper.  The result was a mottled blue-green-yellow that easily reminded me of dragon skin.  So, I decided to stamp the dragon image with Black Memento ink over the watercolor paper, then die-cut.  A little bit of shading was added with some of the Stampin’ Blends.   I did the same thing to create the flames, except I used a combination of the red and yellow Brushos.

Magical Day Dragon Close-Up

The background paper and the strips of paper are from the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I also used a strip of the Myths & Magic Glimmer paper to add a fun pop of shimmer.  The greeting is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set and was stamped in Dapper Denim ink, then cut apart to fit properly.

You’ll find the complete list of supplies below.

Magical Day Unicorn

Magical Day Unicorn

Today, I’m sharing another card featuring the Magical Day stamp set.  If you missed the video from yesterday, be sure to check it out to see how this background effect was created with Brusho Crystal Color.  SEE THE VIDEO HERE

Magical Day Unicorn Close-Up

The real star of this card is the unicorn.  Don’t you just love this whimsical image?  I colored the unicorn with Stampin’ Blends and topped it with Clear with of Stella for shimmer.  The front of the card features a peek-a-boo die cut, so that the unicorn is actually on the inside of the card.

The greeting and sparkles were stamped directly over the watercolor wash background with Black Memento ink.

If you have already fallen for the Magical Day stamp set, be sure to add it to your next order.  The purchase of the Magical Day bundle qualifies you for FREE Sale-a-Bration item!  This is a great time to add the Magical Day stamp set and coordinating dies to your stamp collection.
