Hello my friends! Welcome to our second Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop. There are 37 of us hopping this month. Grab a cup of tea and scroll through all of the fabulous posts. The theme for this month is "Love is in the Air". I interpreted that to be a Valentines theme so I made Valentine cards for the loves of my life - my grandchildren. As this post goes live I am hoping that they have already received their cards because they needed to be mailed.
Paisley's card had to be pink because that is her favourite colour. It also had to be sparkly because she loves all the glitz. They like it if their cards are similar so Everett's card is virtually the same but in a different colour. His favourite colour is orange but that just doesn't read Valentines so I went with Sahara Sand. I hope he will be okay with that.
I used the Always in my Heart Bundle to make these cards.
For Paisley's card I cut the fancy heart out of the Blushing Bride foil paper from the Love You Always Foil Sheets package. I added this to a piece of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in the center of the heart using Rococo Rose ink. I layered this onto a piece of Blushing Bride Love You Always Specialty DSP. I wrapped a piece of the Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon around these pieces and secured it at the back. I used the ribbon to tie a bow and attached it on top of the wrapped ribbon using a glue dot. I added this layer to my Blushing Bride card base using dimensionals. I also added some of the pink pears from the Pastel Pearls package.
The fancy heart also cuts out a plain heart from it's center. I added this to the inside of my card and stamped another sentiment. I hope my little girl likes this card. I know she will like that it is pink and sparkly and that it has pearls. That is what is important when you are four.
Here is the inside of Paisley's card. The heart looks orange in the picture but that is just the lighting.
For Everett's card, I basically made the same card as I made for Paisley except I used different colours. Being twins, they like their things to be similar. I am going to enjoy this as long as it lasts because I'm sure when they grow up that will change. I used the Sahara Sand foil to cut out the fancy heart. I stamped his sentiment using Early Espresso ink. I attached my Basic White layer to the Sahara Sand piece from the Love You Always Specialty DSP. I then wrapped a piece of Braided Linen Trim around this layer and tied it into a knot. I added this to a Sahara Sand card base using dimensionals. Instead of using the pearls, I added some Frosted gems from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets package. I had to make sure that I added three gems to Everett's card because I put three pearls on Paisley's card. One time I added more rhinestones to her card and he was very sad. I have to be very careful that they get the same number especially now that they can count!
I added the inner heart to the inside of Everett's card as well and stamped the sentiment using Early Espresso ink again. Here is a picture of the inside of Everett's card.
