At the 7 Kids College Fund Store, Tab has the new Spellbinder Dies and Tool n One and at prices you will find hard to beat! My personal favorite is the new Tool n One. I have linked a youtube clip to show you how cool it is- a must for anyone who uses intricate dies... Check it out!
Today also begins another great challenge at 7 Kids College Fund. As always, the challenge is "Anything Goes"I thought once Christmas was over, that I would not being seeing "red" anywhere on my cards, but lo and behold, Valentine's Day is right around the corner and out came those "dreaded red" copics! I say "dreaded" because if you have ever smeared them or tried to get the smudges that fall outside the lines back inside the lines, you know what a pain it can be. In those cases, however, I use a Sharpie Fine Point White water based (not poster paint) marker or a Ranger Opaque Pen and gently cover over those little lines or areas outside the lines.
For my card, I selected an older Saturated Canary rubber stamp that Tab has in stock at the 7 Kids store that is just perfect for Valentine's Day. It is "Valentine Petals". It comes with three sentiments too! I chose the sentiment about being a sucker for all things sentimental because that is so me!
The image is colored with copic markers. These days, I find myself trying to color between puppy naps and potty trips outside (no not me, the puppy-lol), so my coloring seems to be suffering a bit! No worries, I must say I learn something every time I color an image and this was no exception!My Minds Eye- "Heirloom Lost and Found"- such a great 6x6 pad for Valentines Day! I used one layer as I did not want to cover up those adorable hearts. I did punch one out and pop dotted it in the upper left corner. The image is cut using Spellbinder Ovals and Spellbinder Grand Scallop Ovals. I distressed the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress Inkpad. Last the heart pearls and flowers are from WOC and the heart patterned ribbon from my stash.
