Sprinklin' More Love

Supplies: Stamps: Stampendous Ink: memento tuxedo black Paper: white and pink cardstock, bo bunny patterned paper Accessories: copic markers, martha stewart border punch, dimensionals

This is the last of the Valentine's I made this one for my other niece.  Again matching pink was not fun, this one was more challenging than the last for matching pink.  I was inspired by limedoodle on SCS.  She makes wonderful CAS cards.  I popped up the bee on this one too, love that look.

Thanks for looking, Have a great day!

Sprinklin a little love

Supplies: Stamps: Stampendous Paper: pink pirouette and white Ink: memento tuxedo black Accessories: nestabilities, copic markers, dimensionals, martha stewart punch, early espresso baker's twine
I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day.  Here is another card that I made for my niece (I have three nieces and one nephew).  Love this stamp, I think it is adorable.  I did find out that matching pink copics to cardstock is not fun.  I think I finally found a pretty close match.  I cut out the bee and popped it up for dimension.  I also added a bow to the negative space of the heart.  Here's a closer look:

Have "Anise" Birthday

Supplies: Paper: Bazzill cardstock, DCWV paper stack Accessories: Papertrey circle die cuts, 3/4 inch square punch, anise candy wrapper, dimensionals
We celebrated my father-in-law's birthday today.  He loves black licorice and anise flavored candies.  So we picked up some sweet anise treats for him for his special day.  When I went to make his card, I was have some major mojo block.  My husband would walk in and I would just be staring at the wall.  So he started offering some inspiration.  He said make the theme of "Have a sweet birthday"  So I was looking for stamps/accessories, I wasn't coming up with anything.  Then he came in again and said, "give me a piece of paper I got it!"  He wrote down "Have "anise" birthday."  Then I remembered that I had purchased a bag of the anise candies for our candy jar, and the wheels started turning.  I unwrapped and enjoyed my candy and cut a few 3/4 inch squares to stack for dimension.  I cut the wrapper a bit because after my squares were adhered together they weren't as thick as the actual candy.  I twisted it up and presto my focal image was complete.  Then I looked up and saw this card that I have displayed in my stamping space and thought the layout would be great for this image.  I recently purchased a set of circle dies from Papertrey and one of them had a pinking edge, and thought that would be more masculine than scallops.  I cut out the top layer with the pinking edge circle, the next layer with the 2 1/2 inch circle adhered them together and popped it up with dimensionals over my patterned paper.  I put glue dots on the back of the "candy" and I was done.  I computer generated the sentiment and printed it on a 2 1/2 inch yellow circle and framed it with a red pinking edge circle for the inside. And I was done in 15 minutes!  So maybe I will have to get the 'ol hubby involved more often in my cardmaking.  That's one of the fastest cards I have ever made!

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
