Showering you with love

With Valentine's just around the corner I thought it was time for a LOVEly card. I got my DT package from sweetpea the other day and here is one of the stamps I chose to play with. Aren't they adorable? The stamp is one of four from plate 102 designed by Elaine Cox.

Both patterned papers are from Basic Grey's bittersweet line. The brown paper was perfect to use with the bears. The image is coloured with promarkers. I used cottoncandy glitterglue on the hearts and when they were dry I put some dimensional glaze on them. I went over with a clear sakura glitterpen on the bears' wings and cloud. The hears are cut out using scalloped hearts nesties. I dryembossed the biggest heart and inked all of the hearts with a brown distress ink. The edges are made with a Martha Stewart doily hearts border punch. Finally I handwrote the sentiment and added some glitter on it aswell. I'm trying to use my handwriting so I will like it when I start journaling in scrapbooking. I must say it's growing on me...

Hats off to you

Today I would like to show you my first card using one of Nikki Burnette's stamps called Telsa from sweetpea stamps. I really like the edgy look of this stamp and thought it would be wonderful to use for a male card. I used blues and green which is my fav colourcombo for male cards. The stamp is coloured with promarkers, cut out and mounted on a piece of patterned paper. All papers are from basic grey. I didn't want to overwhealm the card with too many embellies, but still wanted to use flowers. I think the buttons help to take the cuteness away from the flowers. The sentiment is handwritten and I thought I was very clever when I came up with it.

Challenges for this card:

All sorts - recycle (I used a button that came with a piece of clothing)
Basic Grey - flower power (I used papers from BG's line Marjolaine)
Crafty catz - flowers
Everybody art - my fav thing (I used my beloved promarkers, but also BG papers)
Papertake weekly - sketch
Stamptacular - whateva
