Sending Bunches of Love

If dimension is what I was going for on this card, I definitely accomplished that! LOL!  I started off with stamping the bunny onto a piece of grey paper from the Love Note 6" x 6" paper pad by Fancy Pants, then fussy cutting him out.  I used copic marker C0 to somewhat give it a little bit of a shading in the areas I thought it needed it.  I went on to stamp only the section with the hearts three more times onto a piece of pink paper from the Authentic 6" x 6" paper pad collection - Delight.  Using copic marker R81 I added a little bit of shading to the hearts (again, where I thought it needed it, although I knew I was going to be adding glitter to them, I still wanted to do that), then using Zig 2-way glue pen (the one with the chisel tip), I applied glue to all of the hearts and sprinkled my FAVORITE colored glue, did I say FAVORITE already?...yes, my favorite glitter from The Art Institute Glitter, it's called Art Glitter in Transparent Ultra Fine 6gr.  The color I used was Miss Muffet #144.

I cut out one batch of hearts, then I cut out the second one, however, this time, only cutting out the 3 larger of the hearts, then I cut out only the large heart in the middle.  Using Stampin' Up dimensionals along with Glossy Accents (as my favorite glue), I added a little bit of glossy accents to the dimensional, since I knew just the adhesive on the dimensional was not going to be enough, since the glitter was going to make it difficult adhere, using glossy accents definitely helped.  I did the same thing for the rest of the random hearts I used all over the card.

Using the My Creative Time - Stitched Scallop Heart Die Set, I cut out the outside heart and the inside heart.  I adhered the larger of the hearts with the scallops using Stampin' Up dimensionals and glued the middle heart to the card.  I stamped the sentiment onto Papertrey Ink - white card stock and cut it out using My Favorite Things - Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX die, I ran it once thru my Cuttlebug and then turned the fish tail end around and cut out the other side, so both sides have the fishtail ends.

Here's my YouTube video that shows how I put the entire card together:

I guana love you forever

Here's a stamp set that I've was really anxious to use this year.....I've had it since last February, just never got the opportunity to use it, before I knew it, Valentine's Day was done and over with.  The stamp se is called "Iguana Love" by Stampendous (I placed a link to, since I was unable to locate it on the Stampendous website)

I stamped my image onto X-press it blending card with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it using Copics then fuzzy cut it.  I stamped the sentiment onto a heart that I cut using a die cut from Lil' Inkers Designs.  I used a lot of hearts on this card, then again, it's meant to be a Valentine's Day Card!

Birthday Card Entry


This is a card I created as an entry to a "subbie giveaway" for Maddie, her YouTube channel is mkturner214.  Maddie is celebrating 100+ subscribers!  

Here is the video response I created:

The adorable image you see of all those puppies, is from Whipper Snapper Designs.  I have been wanting to use this stamp for some time now, and this was the perfect opportunity!  I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo black ink onto X-press it blending card paper, then colored it using Copics.  I cut around my image and placed it onto the card using dimensionals.  The designer paper I used is from Basic Grey Shine On Collection (both 6"x 6" and 12" x 12") paper pads.  I used several die cuts from several different companies.  The sun was cut using a die cut from Lil' Inkers Designs, the picket fence is a die from My Favorite Things, the grass die is from Taylored Expressions and last but not least, the small hills are cut using a Papertrey Ink die - In the Meadow.

The larger of the speech bubbles were cut out of the 12" x 12" Basic Grey Shine On paper pad, and the small red square speech bubble was cut from the 6" x 6" Basic Grey paper pad.  The sentiments I used came from several stamp sets.  I added dimensionals to a few of the speech bubbles, so that they would stand out.

For the inside of the card, I used the Sizzix Pop 'n Cuts Base and Insert (card, Horizontal A2 w/circle label 3D) (Pop-up).  The posts were using the Sizzix Sizzlets Flagpole w/Lantern & sign die (decorative strip), and for the banners I used Papertrey Ink - Banner builder die collection.  The stamped image I used is from Whimsy Stamps - Cupcake Bliss, which I also stamped on X-press it blending card using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, then colored with Copics.  I added some of my favorite colored glitter, Art Glitter in Aquamarine from the Art Institute Glitter.  The image was attached to the pop-up using an action wobble, which I have to admit, is my first time using one of these, and I love the effect!  The sentiment inside is from a Hero Art Stamp set called Card Messages that was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black and matted using a piece Pure Poppy cardstock from Papertrey Ink that I die cut using Spellbinder Nestabilities - Long scalloped rectangles large.

I had a lot of fun creating this card, and I really hope Maddie likes it!
