Happy Valentine’s Day! With a grandson and 10 great nieces and nephews, I have been pretty busy making 11 of these Valentine’s Day cards.
I used one of Stamping Bella’s new images, The Bee and the Heart. It is such a cut image and it has a matching die. Oh, and it comes with the perfect sentiment!
I used my Copics to color the images. I started with the color map that Elaine Hughes has created for the images. I changed up a few of the colors for my own personal preference. The color maps for the images are always a great place to start.
Once I colored all of my images and then cut them out, I needed some background paper. I used some of the small stamps from Simon Says Stamp’s Paper Hug to create some background paper. My Misti sure came in handy as I could arrange some of the stamps on my paper, and then stamp them all at once. Once I had them lined up for the first card, it was easy to stamp the remaining 10 backgrounds. This saved me a lot of time! I also die cut the image from fun foam so that I could pop my little bee up on my background.
I used some of the same images from the Paper Hug stamp set to decorate the inside of the card. With little time left to get these in the mail, I didn’t have time to create any embellishments with my Nuvo drops. 😦 Next card for sure!
Thanks for stopping by!
