Be My Valentine Card with Adorable Owls

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am tickled pink to share today’s card with you. With Valentines Day approaching quicker than we’d like to think and I cannot get enough of these little owls from the Adorable Owls so they are highlighting my card again today. The Adorable Owls will be FREE during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order.

First let me start with the Sweet Talk Designer Paper … it’s on the Clearance Rack and is as adorable as these owls!

The sheet I chose has the two patterns you see … one on the front and one on the back, and then I used the Black Glitter Washi Tape from the Holiday catalog that retires on the 4th of this month. I used Real Red for my card base to coordinate with the Sweet Talk Designer paper. Let’s take a look …. Now let’s talk about our Adorable Owls!!

I stamp them with Momento Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and then color them with our Stampin’ Blends Alcohol markers. Yesterday I used the Smoky Slate Combo pack to color and today chose the Natural Tones Stampin’ Blends.

I used 200 from the Deep Tones, and 500 from the Medium Tones Combo. The Natural Tones come in combo packs of two, but they are two different tones. I begin coloring with the 500 Medium tone and then color in my darker 200 marker, then I go back over with the lighter color. I also use the color lifter if I think it’s too dark or go outside of the lines, so the areas that look “highlighted” are actually done with the color lifter.

I decked out my gent with a nice blue bow tie to match his eyes – I used Light Balmy Blue and Light Night of Navy for both. My lady has Dark Pool Party and Dark Bermuda Bay eyes and she is adorned with a necklace created with the NEW Opaque Adhesive Backed Gems.

My greeting comes from the NEW Share a Milkshake bundle and stamped with StazOn ink (doesn’t smear on vellum) and then die cut using the 2nd largest circle from Stylish Shapes. This card uses the Sweet Talk from the Clearance Rack for a sweet Valentines Day and the Adorable Owls… they sure named them correctly!

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.

Have a wonderful week ~

Here is a list of supplies used to create this card …. The Share a Milkshake and Opaque Gems will be available January 5th, and the Washi Tape retires after the 4th. The Adorable Owls will be FREE during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order.

Hello Friend

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have another card from the Friendly Hello you’ll find in the Sale-a-bration Catalog. I decided to showcase the stamp set on this one, along with the pretty paper. It is all about the Fresh Freesia today!

And what better way to make the Freesia pop than to add Black to it!! The designer paper is used as is … I didn’t do anything to it, however, I took the look of the light leaves and recreated it on the Fresh Freesia piece of cardstock I used as my background. We simply stamped the leaf image using the White Craft Ink. I love the soft look and that it creates added depth to the card.

I stamped the flowers and greeting onto Basic White with the Momento Ink on a 3″ x 3″ square and added a black mat to make it pop. The flower was colored with the Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends and then added the Iridescent Rhinestones. That entire piece was popped up.

I think these fun rhinestones are perfect for this card … the large ones fit nicely into the centers of the flower, and I added three to draw your eye around the entire focal point. Besides, we all like a little bling now and then!

Thank you for joining me today … Have a great week!
