Love you more!

I’m back! Yes! so thrilled to be back after two weeks of holiday in New Zealand. It is one of the beautiful country I have seen. I travel a lot. The landscapes are amazing and people are so warm and welcoming. We flew, drove, took the train, the coach, rode bicycles, segway, cruised, walked admiring and enjoying the beauty of the country. I will post some photos from the trip soon here.

I got back into the routine of making cards after two weeks. It was hard to get back into crafting after such a long break. The drive is there but creativity does not flow as it normally would. But nothing like getting some new goodies in the mail. They always bring back the creativity. I received some new release Valentine Stamps and dies from Penny Black. The stamp sets are so cute especially the Mimi’s  collection. The dies are super adorable. I have a card today using Mimi’s Love and So Very Much stamp sets from Penny Black.

Here is my card.

Love you more card 1

I wanted to colour the Mimi images as soon as I saw them. So on my card here, I stamped and coloured one of the image from the stamp set using copic markers. Then stamped the sentiment. I let the colour image be the star of the show.

Love you more closeup
After colouring, I added  glossy accents on those tiny red hearts to give them some dimension. How you can see it on the picture below.

Have you seen the Valentine Penny Black release? They are awesome and adorable. There are ten dies and six stamp sets released. I will be sharing more cards using the Penny Black Valentine release on my blog this month. Here is the link to Penny Black shop if you like to have a looksy!
