Cupcake card

If you're anything like me, you spend a fair amount of time online or in magazines looking at the latest and greatest paper craft products. I love to see what everyone else is working on. It gives me ideas and inspiration. If you are a lot like me while browsing other crafter's works you will undoubtedly find something that you don't yet have but can't possibly live another day without. Is any of this sounding familiar? (You know who you are!!!) Well that is exactly what happened to me when I saw this Lucy Bird patterned paper pack by Imaginisce.
I used pink, blue, brown and yellow cardstock from my stash. Then I cut a square of the Lucy Bird paper and layered that on a strip of brown cardstock that I punched. I added a larger strip of the brown cardstock on top and then cut three scalloped squares with my Nestabilities. Next I stamped the cupcake six times. Six you ask, but I only see three. I stamped it six times, coloring three complete images and three extra flowers with my copics. I cut the cupcakes out with a circle Nestabilitie then I applied Liquid Applique for the frosting added a little glitter (no project is complete until I sparkle) and set it with my heat gun. Next I filled in the flowers with my Spica glitter pens, cut the three extra flowers out and attached each with a pop dot. To finish off the card I attached each of the stamped images with another pop dot.

Puppy Love

These perfect pups are from Stamping Bella. With all the snow we have had lately I finally had a chance to put some ink on some stamps I have had for a while. I just love these two and thought they made a great Valentine's Day couple. Lately I have been grabbing my purple copics more often than my pink, which is unusual for me but I am enjoying the change.
Pretty simple card, the image says it all so I just layered in onto a purple die cut and then put it down on top of the blue and purple patterned paper and then added the purple ribbon for a little extra splash of color. Let me know what you think!

Wrapped In Love

This is one of my favorite Valentine images from Stamping Bella. Isn't she just the cutest thing? I colored her with copic markers, added some shine to her shoes with glossy accents--I love that stuff! Then I cut her out with a Nestabilitie die and layered her on a pink matching scalloped oval. I added some detail with some chalk around the edge, just to give it a little pop. I decided to give the card a little more detail by breaking up the patterned paper into three different strips. Cut the "Wrapped in Love" sentiment with a punch and added the pink pearls. I am hoping to post a few more of my Valentine's Day cards this week.
