Cards Challenge

I love you truly

January 20, 2016

How is your week going so far?  Tonight I am sharing a card I created for this week challenge over on the The Paper Player’s which is to create a Clean & Simple Valentine and Simon Says Stamp Create with Critters Wednesday Challenge.

And therefore my answer to the challenge is:

Valentines Day card using Mama Elephant Lunar Animals stamp set

Copic Markers: E40, E41, E42

I think I met the criteria of Clean and Simple Valentine.  I love when I can use a stamp that has just sat in it’s packaging unloved and I was able to do that.

The bunny was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black on some Hammermill #100 and colored using Copic markers.  Once he was colored he was die cut out and I cut another out of some fun foam to adhere him to.  I marked off my grid area on the focal panel and then used my MISTI to try and get my hearts stamped just right and the sentiment down at the bottom.  I cut the completed panel using MFT’s Blueprint 25 and popped it up on some fun foam and then adhered the whole thing on a piece of Gina K Red Hot card base.

Thank you for stopping by my little spot and I hope your able to get some crafting time in this week.


Stamps: Mama Elephant Lunar Animals, Lawn Fawn Scripty Sayings, and Simon Says Stamp Flip Flop Season for the heart;

Dies: My Favorite Things Blueprint 25, Lunar Animals die;

Paper: Accent Opaque #100 for focal panel, Hammermill #100 for the image, Gina K Red Hot for card base;

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Mama Elephant Apple Pigment Ink;

Accessories: MISTI, Black glaze pen and Black Gelly roll pen.
