You either love it or hate it – Valentines Day, that is. I fall into the first category even though I am not a ‘mushy, slushy’ person! At a local craft fair last month I came across a couple of Doo Lally Pip stamp sets, one of which is very apt in light of my last post and being a Pippa! You’ll see what I mean from the photo.
Doo Lally Pip – My fragile heart
A4 white blending card
A4 white card
A4 100gsm white paper
Snippets of patterned paper and gold mirri card
Spectrum Noir pens and pencils
Versamark ink pad
Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad
Detail Gold embossing powder
I stamped out Doo Lally Pip a couple of times on the blending card and also stamped the sentiment and embossed with the gold embossing powder. I coloured the images using the Spectrum Noir and Copic pens. i then trimmed one of the images to the required size and matted it onto gold mirri card. I did the same with the sentiment. I cut the dress from the second image and layered it onto the base image with 3d gel glue. When the glue was dry I covered the heart with glossy accents.
I folded and trimmed the white card to make an A5 card blank with the front flap shorter than the back. I stamped, embossed and coloured in the hearts down the right side of the card. I attached a strip of patterned paper to the front of the card and added my image and sentiment.
Using the white paper I made and insert and stamped and embossed aheart and greeting on it. I coloured the heart with the Spectrum Noir pencils.
So all I need to do now to be ready for Saturday is to write in it and hide it away!
Thank you for dropping in. Take care.
