Two Cards

>> Tuesday, January 10, 2012

Hi Everyone,

I'm here today to show off one of my favorite stamps from the new releases here at DRS Designs.  Leonard the Pig is making another appearance this Valentine's day on this Rose Offering stamp.  Doesn't he just tickle your funny bone??  His grin it just too cute!  He was simply die cut and colored with Copic markers.

I knew right away that I wanted to pair him with the punny Happy Valenswine's Day sentiment and I created my backgrounds using the Interlocking Hearts and Easy Dot backgrounds.  I had a scrap of ribbon left, and lucky for me it was just enough to go the length of my card.  This confirms why I don't throw stuff away ;)

This second card was what I made for the sketch challenge over at the Card Patterns blog.  DRS Designs is the sponsor this week, so if you want a chance at winning a $20.00 voucher to the store, I encourage you to check it out. 

These were the stamps I used for this card:

I love the way it turned out and since it's one of the more masculine cards I've made, I sent it off to a cousin of mine.  He gave me a beautiful ornament for Christmas, and I wanted him to know how much I loved it.

Now don't forget, the current challenge here at the DRS Designs blog is to use the Spotlight Technique.  Give it a try and you will have a chance at more stamps!

Your cards are beautiful. I really like both of them. Did you use a Stampamajig for the background for the thank you card? They align so perfectly! It's a wonderful masculine thank you card!!

Both cards are wonderful, but I love the background on the thank you card. The colors work so well together.

Your Valentine with Leonard is darling. Love that ribbon and then the 3 little hearts at the bottom. Your challenge card is so beautiful. Love how you colored up that stamp!
