HUGS for my sweetheart

Hello everyone!

Can you believe Valentine’s Day is just around the corner?

This darling little Panda from Ink n’Splatter’s Loveable Panda Stamp Set was busy collecting beautiful flowers for her sweetie.


I printed this little cutie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following markers and colored pencils.

~Copics and Prismacolor Pencils~

Dark Gray: W8, W6, W5, W4, W3, W1 – Pencils: 1067, 1065, 1063, 1061, 938
White: E41, E40, CB – Pencils: 1063, 1061, 938
Light Pink: R22, R20, R00, R000
Red: R89, R46, R27, R24, R05 – Pencils: 925, 924, 923, 922, 938
Yellow: YR23, Y15, Y11, Y00

Nose: 100, W9, W7
Inside of Ears: R000 – Pencils: 929, 928, 1013
Mouth: 1017
White Gel Pen


After I had her all colored, I cut her out with the coordinating Loveable Pandas Die Set and then set her aside to work on my card.


The gorgeous dies I used in my design are from Papertrey Ink. I started by stamping the word HUGS from the Lots of Hugs Stamp Set and then used the coordinating Lots of Hugs Die to cut it out. I cut the die cut in half to give room for the cute little Panda to be in the center of the card. The two white layers are from the Love to Layer: Rectangle Dies.

To limit how thick the card gets, I added a scrap of thick cardstock between layers instead of foam tape.

Believe

Hello and welcome!

When you believe in yourself…all things are possible!

This adorable little cutie called Flower Dreams from All Dressed Up Stamps is busy believing she can do anything she works hard at.

I printed this sweet girl on white card stock and colored her with the following colored pencils.

~Prismacolor Pencils~
Skin: 945, 1081, 1017, 1092, 939, 997, 927, 929, 1013, 938

Pinks: 1054, 929, 928, 1014, 930

The card base was made using a shaped die. I cut one out of the dotted paper, and two out of white. I glued the dotted piece and one white one piece together (right sides facing out). The remaining white piece was scored an inch down from the top, to create an easel effect for the back so it would stand up. I glued to top 1 inch to the front of the card.

Who doesn’t love holding a tiny baby, and the awesome smell of a new life?

I printed this sweet image on white cardstock and colored it with the following colored pencils:

I had so much fun trying to re-create the rainbow from the paper so I could use it on the front of my card. I added a few details with a black marker pen and added in other details with a white gel pen.
