How is your week going? Going pretty good here. I have two more Valentine's Day cards to share with you today. The cards are made with stamps from the Ghastlie Gang. This is another fabulously whimsical set from Di sold at Blockheads Paper Arts.
Stamps: Ghastlie Gang from Blockheads Paper Arts
Love Sentiment-Flowers Daisy Set
Inks: Tuxedo Black and Rhubarb Stalk from Memento
CS: Solar White from Neenah; reds, pinks, white, and lavender
Distress Inks: (on second card) Fired Brick, Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose, Dusty Concord from Ranger
Distressing Tool from Ranger
Spellbinders-Classic Scalloped Hearts, Classic Ovals Large
Sizzix Die -Oval
This lovely lady(?) is stamped on Solar White CS with Tuxedo black ink and colored with Copic Markers. I cut the image and pink CS with the heart die. The card base is made from bright pink CS and layered with red CS. I stamped the word love in the lower corner and added a bow. Ain't she sweet??
To make the background for card number two, I started with a piece of white CS. Add distress inks with the distressing tool and cover all of the white CS. When you like what you have, score lines down the CS using a score pad. Using the distressing tool and Dusty Concord Distress ink, lightly go over the score lines. Don't press on the lines because they will flatten. Just lightly touch them to highlight the lines with the ink. Make card base from lavender CS. Add background piece to card base.
Stamped the image on Solar White CS and color with Copic Markers. Cut out the colored image with Spellbinders die. Cut the scallop oval with a Sizzix die. Add both to card front. Stamp "hug" with Rhubarb Stalk ink. Add ribbon and a small die cut heart.
How about a few fun challenges??!!!

I love working with these images. They are so fun. Don't they make you laugh??!! The Blockheads Technique Challenge is still open. The Technique is "Chalk Attraction". It is a really neat technique and much easier that it looks. Give it a try. Are you getting any Valentine's made? I have one more to make and than I will be done. Have a super day! Love ya.
