I remember the first time I saw one of *THE Julie's* cards on Splitcoast Stampers. I didn't know what stamps she was using, but I knew I HAD to have whatever it was. Little did I know that finding that one little card would be the catalyst that made stamping and paper crafting such a fun journey! One that I am incredibly grateful for.
When I saw this, I just had to try it. Though I am a fan of *nekkid buttons*, I knew I'd get in trouble if I made a Julie inspired card and left my button nekkid. *wink*
She has a fun video tutorial for this card, so run check it out on her blog.
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you. I didn't have ribbon that was small enough for the design...so what did i do, you ask? Well, since I still had twine out from my masculine card, I just colored some with a red Copic. Hello...red twine! It's the little things.
I may have broke some 'rules' on this one. I am thinking the more masculine cards don't usually require glitter. But, hey... I like glitter!
The tiny heart just fits inside the bag. I am sure I didn't come up with this idea, but I was feeling *giddily* brilliant when I thought of it. *heehee* I wish you could see how sparkly it is, but we haven't seen the sun all week. (Note to self; don't brag about your brilliant weather when you know others are in a blizzard.) I wanted the heart to stand out, so I just outlined the heart burglar with Copic BG10. Distress the edges, add some twine, stamp "you stole my heart" on the inside, and.....ta DA!!!
I know, I know...I'm a little late to the party. I had great plans to have this series ready to go on the first. However, the weather was fabulous last weekend so I had to take advantage of that and then there was the little cold that could...and it did kick my butt.
On with the fun! Though I am not a big fan of Valentine's, it gives me a great excuse to use red and pink everything until my heart's content. There will be lots of glitter flying. *wink*
When I stopped for meds the other day, these little candies jumped in my hand. Tricky little things, they are. You don't have to use Valentine themed stamps to make great valentines! I love these stamps with the fun colorful candies. They would make a great teacher gift...teachers need Valentine treats, ya know!?!?!
