Goodbye, February! Be Mine.

  • Paper beverage napkin – Lady Jayne “Celebrate Floral Heart”
  • Stencils –
    • Stampers Anonymous – Tim Holtz Collection “Flames”
    • Ranger Ink – Dina Wakley Media “Viney”
  • Prima-Finnabair Art Basics 3-D Gloss Gel
  • Stamps – Ranger Ink – Dina Wakley Media “Scribbly Flowers”
  • Deli paper
  • Dina Wakley Media acrylic paint – magenta, lemon, lime and white
  • Tim Holtz Idea-ology tissue tape – “Laboratorie”

  • OHTO Fude Ballpoint Pen – black
  • Krylon gold metallic pen
  • Black Cardstock – Bazzill

I created this mixed media card beginning with a beverage napkin that I adhered to a piece of Bristol paper with gel medium. I stamped and lightly painted some deli paper and added tissue tape to the piece. Then I applied the 3-D gloss gel through a couple of different stencils and allowed that to dry into a nice textured coating.

I have included a detailed photo so you can see the texture of the stenciled 3-D gel medium. It is pretty cool!

I loosely outlined the heart with the Fude Ball pen and then ran my metallic gold pen around the entire card, topping it off with a piece of ribbon and some sequins. I mounted the piece onto a black card base.  It is amazing what you can do with a paper napkin! Thanks for visiting.

This was a fun Valentine to make, combining supplies from a several different companies. The squirrel is surrounded by candy conversation hearts, although his acorn seems to be his favored treat! I colored the squirrel with Copic markers to start things off. Then I die-cut the hearts, coloring and stamping the conversation hearts. I die cut the base shapes and arranged all of the pieces to make this Valentine for my son. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Valentine’s Day!

The Valentine season is approaching and who better to provide helpful advice, but the TCP bunny!

Be Mine, Poppy Penguin

  • Stamps – Poppy Stamps “Penguin Be Mine”
  • Dies –
    • Poppy Stamps “Penguin Be Mine”
    • WPlus9 -“Stackers: Hearts”
  • Patterned paper – Authentique “Beloved” Collection – “Beloved Three” (both sides)
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Baker’s twine
  • Red metallic paper – Paper Accents

I know! Valentine’s Day is long past! I made this Valentine for my Mom, but just didn’t get it posted right away. This is a fabulous stamp and die set from Poppy (and I have a discerning eye when it comes to penguins!). I colored the penguin and accessories with Copic markers and used the coordinating die set to easily cut them out. The greeting was also from the Poppy set. The patterned papers are actually both side of the same sheet by Authentique. I have a bit of the red metallic paper I used for the heart peaking out from behind the patterned layer to tie things together. This card perfectly fits the theme for the current challenge at Poppy: Hearts Aflutter. Thanks for stopping by.
