Happy Leap Day!

     For all of those who only get to celebrate the occasional birthday, This one is for you!  I thought it was only fitting to have a frog on today's card, however this dude is using an alternate form of transportation.  Ribbit!

     I bought this set last year and this is the first I have inked it up.  The set is "So Hoppy Together", from SU.  I embossed my card base with the Sizzix tree ef.  Coloring was done with Copic markers and Gina K. ink cubes.  The little tulip stamp I colored and cut out 2x is an unknown red rubber from my stash.  My ovals are from MFT Inside-Out Stitched Ovals with the designer paper being from KI Metro Garden.  A little ribbon flag to the side and some nice yellow Nuvo drops, complete the card!

     Looking forward to the promise of some warmer temps this following week.  Although we have had no snow this year, the up and down weather has been playing games on our bodies.  Hope things start to settle into a good pattern soon!  Enjoy your weekend!

A Little Busy.

     Here is a Valentine I created while I was playing with some very old stamps.  I saw a video where they showed them draw a shape on a card layer, stamp and die cut so that the shape of the die was completely covered.  I brought out my Rubber Tapestry peg stamps and gave it a go.  The set was called African Daisy Border.  I used an assortment of Gina K inks, on a stitched heart layer.  It was such fun, however a wee bit busy.

     I found a piece of Basic Grey pattern paper for the background,  and pulled all of the colors from that.  I recently purchased these fun letter dies from HSN, on Craft Day, and I had to give them a try.  The letters are made by Diamond Press.  I cut them from a scrap piece of paper that was sprayed with Distress Oxide spray inks.  (another fun product)  Just some gems for my flower centers, and a pretty pink bow finished up my project.

     Hope you are all ready for the day of Love!  Tomorrow is the big day.  I have been sporting a bad cold, this week, so I am hoping to be mended enough for a date with my honey.  Whatever you do, have fun!

Magical Day!

     Don't you just love days where you can sit and play.  I received Oxide spray inks as a Christmas gift, and Set myself up with a little spray area,  to check them out.  They were so much fun!  I used the colors, Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans, Cracked Pistachio and Vintage Photo.  I did several pieces at once and I just loved them all!

     The stamps I used are from a Unity Kit of the Month.  I stamped my fairy, and embossed her with Ranger, white EP.  I love how the white popped off the background!  I kept this one simple, and just added a couple of small vellum flowers with gems.  If I had any type of negative comment, it would be that the sprays tend to cause some paper warping.  Securely adding to your card is a must!

     Thank you for taking the time to visit.  Have a great Super Bowl Sunday!  Go KC!
