Sandy Hulsart :: Valentine Sweetness

Hello, Peachy Keen fans, Sandy here with you today; my first solo post!  The new year is cruising along and it is time to start thinking about Valentines.  My first card uses the new January Release set.  I stamped the candies onto Cryogen metallic text weight paper and then colored the entire thing with my black Copic marker.  I carefully trimmed each candy out and then using an embossing tool, dry embossed the wrappers so they bow up around the candies.  I stamped the candies again onto Cryogen metallic card stock and trimmed just the candy portion out.  I colored them and then added Glossy Accents to give them a yummy shine.

I added this fun saying which is also part of the new January Release.  I used card stock from K&Company, the heart embellishment is Cheery Lynn Designs.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

For my next card, I have used this adorable stamp set called Valentine Cupids.  Isn't he a happy little guy!  I stamped him onto Cryogen metallic paper and then added the hearts around him.
Copics used:
Mouse - E41, E42, E43, R20, R21
Bow - E33
Hearts - R32, R35, R39
Wings - Clear Gelly Roll
I combined two of the sayings along with the arrow to create my sentiment.

The paper is from the Bo Bunny Love Letters Collection; the flourish and flowers are from Cheery Lynn Designs.  Finished size is 5.5" square.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out this week's 3D Bears challenge.
