I Brake for Valentines!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing another Valentine's Day card that I made using a fabulous new sheet from I Brake for Stamps.  The set is called VALENTINE SHEET - DESIGNS.

I layered a verse from the set that I cut with my Stitched Rectangles die on top of the rectangle on the main image.

On the inside I used one of the other images from the set.

I Brake for Valentines!

 Hello and happy Saturday!

I just received the brand new release from I Brake for Stamps and I LOVE it!!
The set is called VALENTINE SHEET - DESIGNS.

I colored the image with my Marvy markers in 4 different shades and then stamped it on the white cardstock.  I then colored in the two hearts with two different shades of Copic markers and highlighted with a little bit of Stickles.

I used another image on the inside.  (the Love you is from somewhere else)

Tweetheart Shaker with Quilted Background

Hello Ai fans!

Today we have Art Impressions first challenge of the year. 
Try a new technique.

About a year ago I got the Tim Holtz Alterations Honeycomb die. just sat there.

I was sort of intimidated by it...not quite sure how to use it but since I love bees so much I had to have it.  I decided it was a huge waste of money not to give it a try.  I die cut a piece and didn't like the way it looked at all.  Then it hit me...I could use it like a template.  I laid the cut out portion on my paper and started placing the cut outs inside and gluing them down.

Before you know it...I had a quilt.  I love it!
I will say it was very labor intensive so I can see why a lot of people only do small portions on their cards.

The sweet little image is from Ai and it's called 4363 – Tweetheart Set.

The image is a Valentine's shaker.  What's a shaker you ask?  It's the coolest thing...there's a separate portion of the image on another stamp and you pop it up on a wobble.  What's a wobble you ask??  It makes part of your image jiggle.  Super cute huh?!  They come in two different sizes depending on the size of the stamp you want to wiggle.

On the inside I used the 4619 – Window Die to make the Hi. 

Scroll down for the video of the cute little shaker!
