Happy Valentine's Day

>> Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Hi Everyone!

Now that the new year is in full swing, I'm looking forward to another year of stamping.  It really is the only hobby that I've ever been able to stick with for such a long period of time.  There are always new products coming out, so I'm never bored, and my goal is to be more creative in my use of stamps.
So, with that being said, I have a couple of cards to share with you today.  I thought this would be a fun card to make for a crafty friend.  Maybe a stamper or someone who likes to draw :)

This newly released Hand Colored By Pencil stamp is actually one of those signature type stamps for the back of your cards, but I stamped only the bottom portion without the words along the top and colored them in using a rainbow color theme.  I grabbed my watercolor pen and my ink pads to create the squiggle line and punched out a mini heart in the corresponding colors for the ends.

I added the Small Happy Valentine's Day Greeting that I stamped with the Small Silhouette Heart and used my circle punches to add that sentiment.

I have a couple of January birthdays coming up, so here is one of the cards I created for those.  

I colored up and die cut the Penguin Snowball Blast stamp,  adding it onto a panel that was stamped using the snowflake stamp, and edged with a punched snowflake border.  The Snow Doubt Birthday Greeting was used on the front... 

and the second portion of it was added to the inside, along with Percy Penguin.

Here is a peek at that Pencil stamp on the back of my hand colored card:

Here's hoping your dry, warm and have time to get your fingers inky today!
