Rockin' Valentines

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Today I have a Rockin' Valentine for you using Your Next Stamp - Rockstar Fhinn.  I used Splitcoast SC315 for the layout on this card.  This image was so quick and easy to colour...this is the card my daughter will give to her music teacher for Valentine's.  Sometimes it's great to just make a quick and simple little card.

Monkey Hanging Around - Your Next Stamp

Happy Terrific Tuesday Everyone:

How about some monkey business today!!  This adorable little dude is from Your Next Stamp and he/she is called "Monkey Hanging Around".  One of the things I just love about YNS stamps is how easy & quick they are to colour.  The stamps offer clean lines and they are just plain fun to use.  In keeping with the monthly theme of "Love" I coloured my little guy with Copic's using the SEI "With All My Hearts" patterned paper.  The stamping is done on Xpress It the ink is Memento Tuxedo Black.

Monkey Large 
I used the Nestability die "Labels One" with a MS punch for the border.  Misc. supplies include large eyelets & ribbon.  I used my Ink Blending Tool to add 1st Old Paper Distress Ink to the white cardstock followed by some Frayed Burlap around the edges.

Copic's:  Monkey E50, E51, E53, E55, E57; Branch E44, E49, E47; Leaves YG0000, YG03, YG25

It's the "Love Shack" with "Shopper Fhiona"

Happy Monday Everyone!!

I'm back today with another card using Your Next Stamp, this time it's "Love Shack" with "Shopper Fhiona".  Little Miss Fhiona is out to get her significant other something very special for "Valentine's Day" which is just around the corner ladies.  This card will be for my darling DH this year..think I'll enclose a gift card for his favourite store.  I used Splitcoast Sketch Challenge #SC314 for the layout on this card. 

Love Shack Large 

Here is a close up:

On the large white piece of cardstock I used my Ink Blending Tool, starting with Spun Sugar Distress Ink in the middle & then the outer edge with Old Paper Distress Ink.  All images are stamped on Xpress It cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  When I cut out Fhiona I cut off the purse by mistake, so I completed cutting her out and made the shopping bag pop up with some black floss for a handle.  Sometimes I just love how mistakes turn out kinda' cool!

Copic's:  Fhiona RV99, RV95, RV93, RV91, E000, E00, E02, E17, E18, E19; Hair YR20, E35, E31; Shack E17, E18, E19, RV10, RV99, RV95, RV93, RV91
