Hi friends! I'm excited to be joining in for Valentine Theme Week over at Pretty Pink Posh! Love is in the air, and I have a couple of fun projects to share, using products from the new Valentine release.
**All items in the Valentine section are 15% during theme week!
To begin, I stamped the images from the Love Balloons stamp set, colored with Copic markers, and die cut with the coordinating dies.
Copic Colors Used:
Red: R46, R17, R05
Pinks: RV17, RV06, RV04, RV02, RV00
Squirrel: E25, E23, E31, E51, E50
Beaver: E47, E44, E43, E42, E40, E51, E50
Skunk: C7, C5, C3, C1, C00
Bunny: W4, W2, W1, W0, W00
For my first card, I created an infinity shaker card. To begin, I cut an A2 piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and lightly ink blended it with Picked Raspberry, Kitsch Flamingo, and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide inks. I then placed the Scattered Hearts Stencil over my inked background and blended Picked Raspberry and Kitsch Flamingo to create a subtle heart background. I then put the inked background into an A2 cello bag and filled it with Pink Hearts Clay Confetti, White Hearts Clay Confetti, and Be Mine Clay Confetti, then sealed it up.
Next, I die cut a white cloud border using the Stitched Borders 2 Dies, trimmed it to fit, stamped my sentiment, and attached it to the front of my shaker. Lastly, I arranged the colored images onto my card and attached them using foam tape, then attached the shaker to a white A2 card case using strong adhesive.
For my next card, I created a simple heart shaker card using the adorable images from the Love Balloons stamp set. I started by cutting an A2 card base using hot pink cardstock. Next, I cut a smaller white rectangle, then cut a heart opening using the All My Love Coordinating Dies. I inked a panel of Bristol cardstock using Kitsch Flamingo and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide inks, and then lightly stenciled some hearts with Kitsch Flamingo using the Scattered Hearts Stencil. I attached a piece of acetate to cover the heart opening and lined the back of the panel with foam tape. I sprinkled Pink Hearts Clay Confetti, White Hearts Clay Confetti, and Be Mine Clay Confetti onto the inked background and attached the white panel to the hot pink cardstock to create the shaker.
Lastly, I attached the stamped images to my card using foam tape for dimension and stamped the sentiment in black ink to complete my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope I inspired you to create something fun for Valentine's Day!!
