I have 2 cards today that I made with the set. The first one was also made for the SCS Dirty Dozen/Alumni January challenge. This month, Jodi (Kharmagirl) issued the challenge. Here’s the details:
This challenge is all about *feeling* the love…anything with texture will do the trick!
Challenge Focus: A Valentine’s Day/Love-y Dove-y card!!
Required Element: Texture!! Anything you can *feel*
Restricted Element: No RED!! Pink is ok…but no red.
Making a valentine card with no red is quite a challenge! I decided to make a valentine card for a friend, rather than a “lovey-dovey” one. And I used the image of the rabbit sharing his carrot because I was inspired by some of your comments (I love hearing your feedback!). Tamrah said “…the image gives the extra touch=”love”.” And Karen S. said “…It is very endearing with the rabbit offering his food source to the snowman for his nose. Definitely depicts generosity …”. Thank you, ladies, for these comments & all the others that were posted!
For the required element of texture, I added dots of Stickles to the ribbon. I also added it to his hat and scarf, a bit on the ground, the two tiny hearts and the center of the hearts on the corner piece of dp. The corner piece was punched with a new Martha Stewart border punch, Valentine Lace. That punch is so pretty!
This second card evolved around the colors I chose.
There were pieces left of the same dp used in the first card. So I pulled the blue Copic marker that I used back out and looked for another one that would go well with it. I chose one that is similar to SU!’s Cameo Coral color.
The scrap of Cameo cardstock I found was punched with the new Martha Stewart mini-hearts border punch. Once again I added Stickles…..gotta love Stickles! ;0)
stamps- Snow Friends by Cookie Crumbs; paper- White, Cameo, dp- Heidi Grace; ink- Memento Black; accessories- Copic markers, Heart and Square Nestabilities, Stickles, Martha Stewart mini-hearts and Valentine Lace border punches, pop dots, Jolee’s Boutique snowflakes, ribbon.
And now for a Riley update! I have had some requests for some new photos, so here you go. Riley is doing great! She is dragging off anything she can find to chew on and is just plain ol’ being a puppy. LOL. But we have had very few accidents! She learned very quickly to ring her bell when she needs to go outside! Yay!
The first pic I took last night after I played with her. She just wanted to lay down and sleep. You can see her favorite toy to sleep with in the second pic….a bright pink stuffed puppy! I took the last 2 pics in the evening too. I found her a cute red sweater with a snowflake on it at the pet store (on Christmas clearance 75% off!). :0) I had to wait until she was tired, though, to put it on and take a picture. Otherwise, she wants to chew on it. LOL. You can click on each of the thumbnail pics below for a larger view.
Have a great day!
