Cupid in Training

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY (eve)!
I have to give my hubby props for coming up with this sentiment.  I already knew I wanted to name the set Cupid in Training and being the linear thinker I am, I of course had the sentiment read, "ready, aim, fire".  But John said, "if he's in training wouldn't it be funnier if the sentiment was, "ready, FIRE, aim?".  Brilliant I say, the man is brilliant!


I stamped my images with Memento ink so I could safely color them with my Copic markers.  The sentiments were stamped with Versafine black ink.  


 I used an embossing folder for the bubbly white cardstock on the bottom portion and mounted everything onto a pink grapefruit colored card base.



 For the bow I just used a silver Sharpie to give it a little shine, which doesn't show at all in the photo (a lot of good that did - ha).  I hope this card and stamp set makes you smile, it was a lot of fun to design and I'm so glad my hubby had a part in it too.  You're my Valentine always - Johnny! <3 ;O)

Walking Dead I heart Zombies Valentine

Here's a SUPER quick and easy, clean and simple zombie card.  
Even zombies should get a Valentine card don't you think?


I stamped the Distressed Backgrounds Splats with red ink then I used a couple of drops of the reinker mixed with a little water and splattered some additional splats.  I did the same on a smaller piece of white card stock to stamp the ZOMBIES sentiment and matted that onto black card stock.

I stamped the I and the heart directly on top of the splats and popped up the zombies sentiment on foam tape for some dimension.  Do YOU love zombies?  I'm sure you know someone who does and I bet they would love a zombie card from you ;) maybe even for Valentine's Day?

Distressed Backgrounds and Ink Splats   *NEW It's a Nail Biter

Love is in the Air

This little guy just cracks me up, he looks like he thoroughly enjoys his job. 
I hope today's post makes you SMILE too.  Happy almost Valentine's Day


I'm lovin' our new stencils and for this card I used the Sun Rays stencil and sponged on some yellow ink.  Then I sponged on some light blue around the bottom portion.


I stamped the Cute Cupid images with memento ink and colored them with Copic markers.  Then I used the matching Cute Cupid die set to cut everything out.



I stamped part of the sentiment onto some scrap white paper and cut it at an angle and glued it directly onto the card.  I stamped the LOVE on the card and popped up the cupid with foam tape.  Then matted everything onto a white card base.


Hope you have a Happy Valentines Day <3!

   Versafine Full-Size Ink Pad - Onyx Black

Will Work for Rubber Stamps

Or clear stamps...stamps, any stamps...will work for stamps!  This new Addicted to Rubber Stamps set is so much fun you have to check out all the funny sentiments made especially for all of us stamping addicts.  Enjoy...


I die cut an oval from a white mat and embossed it with a retired SU! embossing folder, then added foam tape to the back so it would give some nice dimension placed on top of the white card front.


The sentiment was stamped with Versafine black ink (my fav for sentiments hands down!) I also stamped the maid with it too so I could watercolor my image.


I used Faber-Castell watercolor pencils to color my image then I fussy cut her out without leaving any white border.  I popped her up with foam tape with the exception of her mop which gave it different heights of dimension. 


Would you work for rubber stamps, I literally do?!

*NEW Addicted to Rubber Stamps

Puppy LOVE

 Here's a Q&E (quick and easy) card for your special someone on Valentines day or any day.


I used the Caution Wagging Tail die and cut two dogs out of black card stock.  I die cut a red heart and sponged around the edges a little with a deeper red ink.


The sentiment is from the "Caution Dog Slobber" set and was stamped with Versafine crimson red ink.  I put everything on a white mat then on a black card base.  The doggies were popped up on foam tape for dimension. Definitely Q&E :o).

Caution Dog Slobber  Caution Wagging Tail Die Set

I will always be with you

Here's another clean and simple pet sympathy card using the new "Fill My Heart" stamp set from Whimsy Stamps Rainbow Bridge Collection.  


This card was just as quick and easy as the one I posted a couple of days ago.  I just stamped the dog with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and the sentiment with versafine black ink.  


I used a ruler to draw the straight line with a black marker and put a little chalk under this sweet doggie for a shadow.  Then popped it up with fun foam for added dimension.  Done.
