Hi crafty friends and welcome back to my cardmaking blog. Today I’m up on the Scrap ‘N Stamp blog with Warm and Feathered Valentines using My Favorite Things products.
It’s been snowing daily around here so it’s a great time to cozy up with some coloring tools and I decided it was time for some Valentines cards.
Scrap ‘N Stamp recently had a Memory Box die sale so I picked up a couple of background dies that I have been ogling for a time.
This one is the fabulous Alpine Trees. Great here for snow covered winter trees and creates a frosty mountain to set off my little owl friend.
To create the background for my Warm and Feathered Valentines card, I blended Distress oxides all over the card front and then used the MFT Lots of Hearts Stencil with the darkest Ink, Picked Raspberry, to add really subtle hearts up there in the sky. The other inks are Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Squeezed Lemonade. When the ink was dry, I splatted a bit of white paint on it to make it look like snow.
Over that, I white heat embossed the Lots of Love sentiment from MFT Birdie Brown Greetings and some of the snowflakes in the Warm and Feathered Hugs stamp set. Looks Like Birdie Brown Greetings is not available at either store I linked below, but Birdie Brown Greetings Galore is, with an selection of sentiments that would be perfect for this card.
The little owl is colored with copic markers (listed in the PDF below), and die cut out with the coordinating dies.
This could also be a support card for one of your friends going through some stuff.
