This blog hop is dedicated to Valentine's cards for our heros to send to their loved ones, big and small. Here are some ideas to get you going and creating:
This first card was made with a daughter in mind. It could be sent by a mom or a dad to a child. As you can see the design is extremely simplistic, the patterned paper and the little girl stamp have centre stage!
Paper: Unknown patterned paper, Cardstock (PTI), Neenah Solar White
Stamp: Hero Arts
Ink: Fired Brick Distress Ink, Copics, Memento Tuxedo Black.
Other: Mat Stack #4 Die (PTI), Eyelet Lac Border Die (PTI)
This second card has a more mature romantic feel to it, meant to be exchanged between adults! Again, just using some pretty patterned paper for the background. (Sorry I cannot give you the manufacturer details, but I used to throw all that extra informtion out, before becoming a blogger, now I know better). The butterfly was stamped using distress ink on watercolour paper and spritzed with pearlized water just before stamping. The one wing is popped up with dimensional adhesive.
Paper: Unknown Patterned Paper, Neenah Solar White, Watercolour Paper
Stamps: Hero Arts
Ink: Worn Lipstick & Tea Dye Distress Inks,
Other: Random pearls
Here is the last card from me for today! This one was one of those that I vividly saw in my mind about two days ago and walked around literally for two days thinking of all the details!
The rose is from Darkroom Door and it was stamped on PTI's Rustic White Cardstock (love it) using embossing ink and then setting it with clear embossing powder. I then inked the panel with Fired Brick and Peeled Paint Distress inks, wiped off any excess from the actual stamped image, and added a little bit of Vintage Photo around the edges.
The sentiment was created using a Close To My Heart and Hero Arts alphabet stamp set, as well as Tiny Type sticker letters from Cosmo Cricket. A litttle bit if twine from The Twinery and some gemstones from Hero Arts and my vision came to life! Love it when a plan comes together!
Stamps: Darkroom Door, Hero Arts, CTMH
Ink: Memento Tuxedo black, Fired Brick & Peeled Paint & Vintage Photo Distress inks
Other: Twine (The Twinery), Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alphabet stickers, Gemstones (HA)
