Fall time card
Are you ready for some blog candy yet? Feb is almost here? there will be contests and giveaways almost everyday!!
Friday, January 27, 2012
Isn't she so adorable and dressed for the holiday? I added some wonderful glitter adorned paper from K&Co, some beautiful flowers with bling and die cut the image out with a huge circular die cut and adorned it with pink ribbon. Here's a close up of the stamped image, colored in Copic Markers:
Can't you image the smile coming to this little girl's face? I almost have to laugh and think if you have a teenager, you are probably used to seeing this expression a lot anyways! If this is the look on my face on Valentines, you best bring out the chocolate (white chocolate preferred, thanks!!)
Have fun making tons of Valentines for the upcoming holiday, be sure to check out all the wonderful stamps on sale at the website and Feb is going to be a month long blog candy celebration at Holley's Blog with games and fun going on all month long in a huge giveaway to celebrate the two year anniversary of successful brain surgery. Be sure to come by and win some!

Paper Temptress Angel
You can run this paper through your computer printer, so it's perfect for Digi stamps! I got some great die cut tools that have a mix of funky flower shapes and odd circles from Lifestyles (formerly Quikkutz). I chose two sizes that would match my card. For the background of the image I chose a great lightweight blue paper called Blu Raspberry. The card base is a wonderful Glossy paper that I also textured with a sizzix tool and then added color using a colorbox inkpad called Peacock Blue. I added final embellishment with Prima flowers, fun buttons, and Bo Bunny brads.
Isn't she a beauty? Be sure to read a few entries down to hear about the blog hop. Paper Temptress is going to sponser a wonderful gift certificate of $20 during the games in Feb! Woo HOO!! Grab a photo of the prizes and post about it on your blog. Drop me an email and let me know in order to sign up for the first contest (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Paper Temptress Priscilla
I just love the pile of books she's sitting on and reading. It makes me think she's looking up some sort of love potion for Valentine's.
The papers for this project come from Paper Temptress. The background paper is called Black Grandee Feltweave. This paper is a nice heavy weight paper for the card background and has wonderful texture (CLICK HERE). I highlighted mine by adding just a small amount of chalking to the corners. Then I used a Sizzix die cut to create some fun flourishes for the card. For the flourished, I used a textured paper as well, this paper is the Khaki Crepe.
The image is stamped and colored using Copic Markers. Alcohol ink markers work great on Heavenly White, Cryogen White and Neenah Solar white. For this card, I am using the Neenah Solar white. I used a large die cut to trim out the image and dusted the edges with a Colorbox Chalk inkpad.
I hope this card makes you want to break out some gorgeous paper and create a fun valentine card today!
