Valentine's Day Monkey Card

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and love is in the air.   Today I want to share with you a quick Valentine’s Day card I created.

The red card base was cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and folded in half.  I then cut a piece of craft cardstock 4” x 5 ½” and layered it on top of the card base.  I used the pierced square die and cut a piece of designer paper from the Authentique smitten 6 x 6 paper pad. 

The monkey was stamped on some water color paper and colored with the tim holtz distress markers.   After coloring the image in, I centered the image in pierced square die and cut it out.  I applied some stickles to the heart balloons and layered the image on the design paper collection.  The sentiment was stamped with some red distress ink and the hearts where colored in with the distress makers.  To dress the card up a little more, I created a bow out of craft twine I had and applied a jem to the center of the bow.

I really love how this came out and I hope you are have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with your family and friends.

Valentine's Day Card

Happy Friday my crafty peeps.  I hope you are having a wonderful day.  I decided to create a Valentines card using a Recollections Stamp Set  I had in my stash.

The card base measures 4 ¼” x 5 ½”, the rest of the layers are cut as follow: Craft card stock 4” x 5 ¼”, Authentique Smitten paper collection cut at 3 ¾” x 5” and red cardstock cut at 2 ¾” x 4” and adheared each layer with some double sided tape. I stamped the mason jar with black ink and then using a pair of scissors. cut out the jar.  The lid of the mason jar was stamped on white card stock with some red distress ink.  To give the lid some more texture, I  used a white jelly  pen to accent the white dots on the lid.  I then took some craft twine  and wrapped it around the lid and created a small bow to attach to the top.
The stamp set also had a few tag stamps so I stamped a couple of them on some pink cardstock and punched a hole in the tops and attached them to the top of the mason jar lid with some twine. 

The sentiment is a Michael’s dollar spot stamp I had in my stash from prior years, I used some versa mark and gold embossing powder to stamp on some white card stock. To finish off the card I applied some sequence to the inside of the jar and a few smaller hearts floating at the top of the lid.
