Hello everyone, Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I have a set of valentine’s day card to share. These are punny cutesy cards using products from Taylored Expressions. Some products are new and some are old. I love to combine them and really had a blast making these cards.
I started with stamping out several of the pizza slice image from Matchy Matchy Foodie Friends stamp set using Oreo hybrid ink on Sugar Cube cardstock panel. Then I coloured all the slices using copic markers. Using the coordinating die, I die cut all the slices out. Then I trimmed the hands of seven of the pizza slices. I kept the hands of one of the die cuts. I added foam adhesives behind all the pieces.
For the background, I wanted to use stencils. One on background panel, I used the Heart to Heart stencil and sponged Cupcake dye ink very lightly. So there is a subtle interest in the background. one the second panel, I used the larger Masking Stencil-Hearts and sponged Strawberry Milkshake, Fruit Punch, Cherry Pop and Mulled Wine TE dye inks using TE Blender Brushes. Then I went over the panel with Heart to Heart stencil with Sea Salt ink.
I stamped the sentiment from Matchy Matchy Foodie Friends stamp set in Oreo ink, and trimmed the sentiment. I also stamped the Mini Strips Valentine on Sugar Cube cardstock and die cut using the matching die.
I arranged all the pizza slices into a full circle shape except one on the first background panel. I adhered the trimmed sentiment from Matchy Matchy Foodie Friends stamp set with another slice of pizza off the full pizza as shown. Below all of this I adhered one of the sentiment from Mini Strips Valentine. All the sentiment and pizza slices are adhered using foam adhesives.
For the second panel, I used the pizza slice with its hands. The large sponged pizza shape on the second panel helps draw our eyes to the pizza slice. I stamped the sentiment directly on the centre of the sponged heart and foam mounted the coloured pizza die cut using foam adhesive. I used another of the sentiment from Mini Strips Valentine stamp set below and I also coloured the strip using copic markers to coordinate with the sponged heart on the background. The panel are foam mounted on Sea Salt and Sugar Cube card bases. A few Bits and Pieces Rhinestones to finish off the card.
Hope you liked my punny valentine card set. If you get inspired by these and make your own, share them on social media and tag me. I love to see them. Have a wonderful weekend. I will see you on Monday.
