Today I have a wide variety of Valentine
inspiration to share.
Lets begin with these adorable robot images, stamped with Memento ink on Hammermill Digital Cover Copy Cover, and colored with Copic Markers, then coated with a light coat of Spectrum Sparkle pen to give that shiny metallic look.
This robot features the hearbeat image from the previously released Heart Beats clear set (CL562) and the fun graphic sentiment Heart Beats (D19671). Both are stamped in coral ink, then overstamped with Versamark ink and clear embossed for shine and texture.
For this robot card, I stamped the Confetti Background in a contrasting warm gray ink, then added Spectrum Sparkle pen to the gray images. The I Love You sentiment was heat embossed in white to a strip that matched the mat for my focal image.
This card features the silhouette stamp Walking Couple. I first created the sunset background with Distress Oxide inks on hot press watercolor paper. I used Post-It tape to mask the horizon and boardwalk areas as I created the water, then removed the masks and covered the water to protect it while I inked the sunset and boardwalk. I added Spectrum Sparkle to the water before stamping the Walking Couple and the Walt sentiment in Versamark and heat embossing in black.
This pretty Heart Cake makes a great spring birthday card when paired with the Sweet Day greeting. I chose to stamp with Memento ink and color with Copic markers.
This is a simple card that is easily mass-produced. I stamped the Watercolor Stripe (E20427) three times onto my white 4" x 5.25" panel using my MISTI, moving my paper to create the repeating pattern instead of moving my stamp. My focal image is one of the images and sentiments from the clear set, Love Hands (CL814), stamped in Memento and colored with Copic Markers.
