Penny Black | Piece of My Heart Valentine’s Day card | 2019 Valentine’s Day Series Card 3

Hi everyone,

Today I’m sharing another Valentine’s Day card featuring Penny Black’s Key to My Heart stamp set. I used two of the main images from the stamp set to create this very soft and cutesy card.

Penny Black Key to my Heart stamp colored with Copic Markers and stencil inked background with MFT Cloud Stencil and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink Valentine’s Day card.

I stamped my little stuffed animal image onto white smooth cardstock using Memento Tuxedo dye ink and colored him in with my Copic markers.

I used E31, E33, E35 and E37 for the main color of his body and brought in just a little E39 to darken up the shadow areas. Then I added a little E50 and E53 for the patch across his eye and finished the image by dotting all four of the colors to create a textured fur look.

For the background, I stenciled a soft cloud look by using an MFT stencil and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock.

Once I finished inking the background, I cut the cloud panel down to 4 ¼ by 5 ½ and stamped the heart image directly on the background panel. I did color in the hearts using various shades of pink and red for some interest.

And finally I used an Altenew Fine Frame Cover dies to add a nice think black frame around my card that is slightly smaller than the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Altenew’s bold blossom Mother’s Day card

Hey everyone,

I’m back this week with another Mother’s Day inspired card, done three different ways. This time I used Altenew’s bold blossom layering stamp set with the coordinating die.
I started by stamping each successive layer from lightest to darker color on some Simon Says Stamp 120# cardstock. I used Memento dye ink in Tuxedo black to stamp the outline of each rose using my Misti stamping tool to ensure consistent stamping. I then cut each flower with the coordinating die.

Colors of the inks I used in each card, from lightest to darkest.

Pink flowers: Memento’s Angel Pink, Rose bud and Love letters.
Blue flowers: Memento’s Summer sky, Bahama blue and Paris dusk.
Yellow flowers: Hero Arts Lemon Yellow, SSS hybrid Lemon Rest and Lawn Fawn’s Carrot.

Using Tim Holtz distress watercolor cardstock and Twinkling H20’s iridescent watercolor allowed me to create a simple and soft watercolor background for my roses to sit on. I love using Twinkling H20’s watercolors, they can be very subtle with just enough shimmer to stand out.  Using Hero Arts’ Celebrate Everyday sentiment stamps, I stamped “Happy Mother’s Day” in the lower right hand corner with archival black ink.

To finish the card, I adhered various color card bases to a top folding A2 size card and continued layering the watercolor background piece and finally adhering the roses with some foam adhesive for added dimension.

I love how these cards turned out. They are very simple and yet very elegant for the special ladies in my life for upcoming Mother’s Day celebration.

I decided to play along with Altenew Inspiration Challenge over on their blog and enter the pink card for the May challenge. Check out their blog for more information. Wish me luck!
