(Check out the new release Candyland Christmas---ADORABLE!)
Alma (the owner of this swanky stamp line) is a doll. I have had the pleasure of meeting her a couple of times and I can tell you that she is such a sweet and unassuming person (with a rockin' sense of humor)!
When I sent out an email to Alma asking if she would like to sponsor the Heart to Heart blog candy she wrote back "Whatever you need". She sent me a HUGE and HEAVY box of fun stuff to give away......That sums up Alma. Huge heart and great talent.
My first card features this pup (Puppy Love)--he is so cute and I just had to make a little Valentine with him.
I overlayed the swirl cut cardstock over white cardstock. I added red stickles over all the red in the stamped image (around the heart and the heart antenna and collar). I added a little silver clip at the top of the image and tied some fun ribbon to it. Isn't he adorable?
Materials used: Stamps-Puppy Love (The Cat's Pajamas); Memento Tuxedo Black ink; stampin up real red marker; red stickles (Ranger); cardstock-white, red (SU!); ribbon (Offray); hardware clip (We R Memory Keepers); Swiss die cut cardstock (Creative Imaginations); rub-on - Cherished Memories (SU!); dimensionals (SU!).
For this card, I paper pieced the rocket. I used my Cuttlebug numbers embossing folder to add some texture and cut out the number 4 from an embossed piece for the tag. (I REALLY need to get some number/letter dies--any suggestions?!)
I added some punched stars to make the rocket look like it is heading into the sky.
The final touch is some rocket "smoke" which I created by cutting thin strips of designer paper and rolling them around a paint brush. Then I attached them under the rocket "thingys"?--what are they called--exhaust pipes? No clue....just like it!
Materials used: Stamps-It's a Mod, Mod World (The Cat's Pajamas); cardstock-very vanilla (SU!); Designer Paper-Zoom Collection (Crate); Cuttlebug (Provocraft); Numbers Embossing Folder (Provocraft); Fiskars Threading Water Punch; Jumbo eyelet (SU!); hemp (Hobby Lobby); dimensionals (SU!); star punch (SU!).
