You are Totally Fabulous

The Ellen Hutson January Pinsights challenge (here) inspired me to make this card.

I loved the black and gold and turquoise colors from the inspiration board and it translated into this card:

totally-fabulous

I first die cut the sentiment out of gold glitter paper. Then I adhered that to a black strip of paper. I stamped the flowers and leaves in black pigment ink, and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I used Peacock Feathers distress ink on the top portion of the card.

I hope you like it!

Love You Penguin

This little penguin is so cute. I have always loved the critters from Paper Smooches!

I stamped the penguin and the sentiment in black pigment ink, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. It adds a fun glossy look. Then I painted some watercolor paper with a color I mixed with Gansai Tambi Watercolors. (This color reminded me of the inspiration photo for the current Paper Smooches challenge). I cut some hearts out of that blue-green watercolored paper. Then added some watercolor dots of the same color to the card.

Doesn’t he look so happy and cozy? He’s ready with a hug!

Hugs & Kisses

I cannot stop making Valentine’s cards! I have one to share today featuring Mama Elephant Stamps.

This card started out with stamping all the XOXOs with the Misti, so I could get them all lined up. Then I watercolored that cute cat, and white heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock.

And that’s where it stopped! I literally had this card sitting on my desk for days because I couldn’t figure out how to finish it.

Then, today I found some soft pink glitter paper…and it all came together! I used the glitter paper for the frame and the hearts. I love it. It’s a perfect Valentine card with red and pink and glitter and hugs.

Hope you like it!
