Love at First Sight Cards - Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Happy New Year and welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! This talented team is comprised of 20 amazing designers from around the world. We will be blogging every second Thursday all year long.

Today I wanted to share a few Valentine-ish cards for you using the new First Sight Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

This is a non-traditional take on a Valentine card but I thought it was the perfect masculine design for my Husband. To create the background of this card I used a Classic Stampin' Pad and gentle dragged it across my cardstock.

Valentines are not just for lovers (I hate the word "lovers". It sounds so creepy. Shiver).  Anyway, I love to give a card to some of my besties to tell them how much I love them too. 

Do you love the little bird? I stamped him in Tip Top Taupe Classic ink and then painted over top of him with the new Gold Wink of Stella Pen (available for purchase at my Canadian online store January 5, 2016).

One more project ... I was loving this technique and I wanted to create a little box for a few chocolates. It is hard just after Christmas to think about putting another chocolate in my mouth, buuut give it a month and I will be stuffing it in my face at Valentines day (and I wonder why my jeans don't fit).

Next on the blog hop is Marisa Gunn.
