Hey, Valentine!

Hi! today I had a play with one of the new stamps in our Occasions Catalogue called Hey, Valentine!  He is such a cutie, don’t you think?

Hey Valentine

Here is how I made the card.   Firstly, I cut out two circles (6th & 7th circle) from the Circles Collection Framelits.  Then using the word window punch cut out four pieces.   Fold and cut in half,



Now taking your woodgrain embossing folder place the largest circle and the 8 halves of the word window pieces into the embossing folder.   Make sure you put the word window pieces on an angle to get a different “woodgrain” look and then run it through your Big Shot.


Take the pieces out of the embossing folder and with a sponge gently colour using your crumb cake ink pad.  I add add a bit of definition by using a dab of early espresso.

When you have coloured in all the pieces, adhere them to the circle (I used multi purpose glue) in the shape of a ship’s wheel.  Next, take the remaining circle cut out and stamp  your image onto it using memento ink.



NOTE:  You will notice that there is the word “Valentine” at the top of the sentiment, which I chose not to use.  To do this I placed a spare word window cut out over the word to stop the ink from adhering to it and just ran the ink pad over the rest of the stamp and then stamped it.  Now colour the image using blendabilities ( a list of all the colours I used are shown below).  Finally, to add a little “bling” to my treasure chest I used the tiniest pearl embellishments and some gold glitz for the coins.

Hope you enjoyed this mini tutorial, don’t forget to leave me a comment, or,  if you have any questions just let me know.

Thanks again for stopping by, hope you have a great day!

Bokeh Technique

Happy New Year everyone, I hope you had a great New Year’s Eve and are looking forward to a happy, healthy, and prosperous stamping 2015.

Today I have made a card using the Bokeh technique.  This is a fun thing to do and the patterns and colours are endless.  If you used the same colours over and over again, each one would be different.  Give it a try, I know you will be hooked lol.
