Hey there! Well, here it is.... I've been dying to show you this card!! I just fell in LOVE with it after I finished. Aren't these little cupcakes the cutest? Smoochie-smoochie!! Did ya check out the cupcake on the right? He's all mad cuz' they're talking during the movie!! Bwah-ha-ha-ha!! This stamp is from the "Cuppie Love Scenes" set. It's just one of three new sets available today over at Taylored Expressions. The other two sets are "Love Everywhere" and "Sprinkled with Love". OMG!! You have GOT to go check 'em out. LOVE-LOVE-LOVE 'em!! Now if that weren't enough, Taylor also has the new Valentine's Key Ingredients Kit available today as well!! Holy cow, you should see what you get with this kit!! This kit will easily make all your Valentine's Day cards and then some!! It comes with multiple sheets of high quality cardstock (REALLY nice!), the latest and greatest DP (lot's of that too!), ribbon, Stickles and a whole bag of Valentine chipboard pieces (like the heart I used here on my card). Wait.... there's more.... there's also an additional kit called the Valentine Sweets Sampler that includes tons more goodies... like gems, stick pins, more ribbon, brads, felt buttons, some preeeeety SPAHKLY stuff, etc, etc. Seriously, it's a ton of stuff and it's NICE stuff too!! I was SO excited when I opened mine. It's like a never ending package...just keeps on giving!! Woo-hoo!!
Ok, so on to today's card. I started with the vanilla cardstock in the Valentine's KI Kit as my cardbase and layered on the red cardstock as my mat. The first layer of DP is stitched to that and then I zig-zag stitched the top DP onto it. Next, I stamped my image onto the vanilla cardstock in the Kit and colored it with my Copics. I paper pieced the stage curtains and the chair backs with the same DP from the first layer. I used a few dimensionals behind the valance so it would give the curtains some depth and added some Stickles to the little cupcake cherries. I matted the image with the red cardstock from the Kit and adhered it to the DP with a few dimensionals. I wanted to incorporate some of the chipboard pieces from the Kit as well, so I used one of the smaller hearts and colored it with some red chalk ink and then added red Stickles on top for some GLITTAH! I tied on the beautiful satin ribbon from the Kit and adhered the chipboard heart on top. To finish, I stamped the sentiment onto the same vanilla cardstock and cut it out with my SU Word Window punch and adhered it on top of the ribbon and there you have my first card as the new TE Guest Designer!! Ok, now ya gotta tell me how I did??? Be sure to leave a comment below, 'k?
