I really like my card today and I hope that you do too. I used a cute bee cut that I got from the Silhouette store. It's so fun to make Valentine's Day cards and I didn't use the traditional red and pink paper so that was fun!
Kaiser Pearls and red stickles. If you are interested in any of the products that I used today be sure to visit the Cutters Creek Store.

I really had fun coloring this image by Sassy Cheryl called a Simple Bunch of Flowers. It was not hard to keep a smile on your face while coloring her. Let me know what you think.
(Click on photo for a larger view)
Details: Card base is 5-3/4” square. The shape of the card was cut using a Silhouette Portrait. Card base is made from Bazzill Basics, Simply Smooth White. The remaining papers are from my stash. The image was colored using Inktense Paint Pencils and Copic markers for the skin (E00, Eo1, E11, & R20) my favorite colors for skin). The buttons on the dress and shoes were accented with Enamel Accents (dimensional faux enamel) made by Inkssentials, Ranger. I used a Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper (Deco) to create the corners of the image. The rosette and button was cut using the Silhouette and the button is decorated with stickles and Scrappers Twine. The sentiment was created on the computer and then cut to create the banner. And I used Distress Ink to the edges of the banner. On the image I used Glossy Accents to the centers of both flowers. And some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter.
Supplies: Bazzill Basics Paper
I hope my card gave you some inspiration to do some coloring using digital images or your stamps. To me coloring is so relaxing.
If there are any products noted in the Details that are not available from Cutters Creek Online Store you can always contact Kim to see if she can order it for you. I ordered my Silhouette through Kim and the process was so easy because Kim makes it easy.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you leave a comment to let me know your favorite thing on my card.

Cutters Creek Shopping List
My Mind's Eye papers
Saturday, January 25, 2014
Today, I am sharing a project that I have up on the Cutters Creek Design Team blog. My project uses a new technique, embossing paste!
Copics, some with Wink of Stella and some I put Glossy Accents on top and then dumped some pretty Tim Holtz distress glitter on top of it. The heart was cut out with Sizzix Framelits and I also used My Mind's Eye paper. I attached my ruffled ribbon to the back of my heart and to my card using Scor-Tape.
If you are interested in any of the products that I used today, be sure to visit the Cutters Creek store.

I made this mini card. I took black card stock and cut it 3x6, fold it in half and then I cut red cardstock 2 1/2 x 2 1/2. On the white card I stamps these owls I found in my stash with black Memento ink. I colored them with my copic markers ( E11, E13, E15,RV55,RV09). I used DoodleBug Twine red, and wrapped that around the red cardstock before placing it down on the black cardstock. I used pop up dots under the owls to give it some dimension.

here. There is a link on the blog to a YouTube video tutorial. Isn't this just the cutest thing ever???
To make the card, I started with a piece of Kraft card stock cut to 8 1/4" X 9". On the 9" side score your card stock at 2 1/8", 4 1/4" 6 3/8" and 8 1/2". Then turn the card stock so are scoring on the 8 1/4" side and score your card stock at 2 3/4". With the 2 3/4" score line to your left you want to cut your card stock to 6".
From the piece you just cut off, you want to cut a piece that is 3 1/8" wide, then cut that piece in half lengthwise. From there it gets a bit tricky. Still an easy card, but I would suggest you watch this tutorial video. This helps explain where to cut the card stock and how to assemble the box part of the card.
Back panel (does not get folded) red base mat is 5 7/8" X 8" and the white mat is 5 3/4" X 1 7/8". I stamped the white mat with my sentiment using Love Letters Memento ink. The heart flowers were cut using my Silhouette. I used Glossy Accents on the two heart flowers and covered the smaller on in Picked Raspberry Distress Glitter and the larger on with Festive Berries Distress Glitter. The Distress Glitters are a special order item just ask.
To cover the bottom panels cut your red mats at 2" X 3 1/8" and the patterned paper at 1 7/8" X 3". To cover the top panels cut your red mats at 2" X 2 5/8" and your patterned paper at 1 7/8" X 2 1/2".
Then decorate and embellish as you wish. I used some print and cut images cut with my Silhouette. I used the Spica Red Glitter pen to add some sparkle to my Bear Lady Bug's antenna's and to the word love on my word label. I used the Blossom Spica Pen to add sparkle to the words Never Ends.
My lady bug bear is attached to the back panel with an Action Wobble. I used my Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive and ATG gun to put the card together.
Now so you can see all sides of my card, I have a quick video for you.

I fell in love with this digital image that I used on my card and just knew I had to color her up and make a card. I am pretty sure I will give it to my hubby for Valentine’s Day even though it has a bow on it.
Details: My card is a standard A2 card (4.25x5.5 inches). The base of the card is made from Bazzill Simply Smooth Cardstock 8.5"X11"-White. There 6 layers including the image layer on the front of the card. I colored the Bazzill white layers (edges) with pink and red glitter pens. And the black card stock is by Neenah. The image is by Sassy Cheryl and is called Smitten. I colored her using Inktense Ink Pencils except for the skin. I used Copic Markers to color the skin (E00, E01, E11, RV21). The lady bug on the hat, buttons on the shoes and center of flower on the hat was accented with Inkssentials Glossy Accents. The heart buttons were hand made using a heart mold. Then I colored them using a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush in Red.
The inside of the card is made from Neenah Black Card stock and the pink card stock is from my scraps. The sentiment is part of the digital stamp image. And the falling hearts were die cut to get the various sizes and colored them to match the front of the card.
The card is held together using Tombow Mono Aqua (liquid glue) and Hot glue was used to adhere the buttons and bow.
All items that are linked can be purchased at the Cutters Creek Online Store. And if you have any questions about the products I used you can contact Kim Bush of Cutters Creek and she will be glad to assist you.
Thank you for stopping by and I would love it if you left me a comment to let me know what you think of my card. I love reading all the comments. And they give me incentive :)
