I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Happy Heart Day

Hello crafters,

I sure hope you're all having a fabulous Sunday! I've spent most of the day at my stamping table and it's been fun. I'm trying to get in lots of stamping time before tomorrow when I start cleaning out my room and putting everything in the garage prepping for our company, then my room make-over.

Since today is Sunday, it's time for a new Paper Players challenge. Laurie is this week's hostess with a timeless color theme of Red, Kraft and White. I think we all love this combo. Since I know that Laurie loves dies, I pulled out some new Mama Elephant dies to make my card.

This die set is call Favor Bag-Dog dies. (you can also make a cute kitty). I cut the shapes from SU Crumb Cake and Whisper White card stock. For the dog, I sponged some Distress Burlap ink over one of the ears and the nose circle. I also used a Copic brown pen and white gel pen to make some freckles. Using a pencil eraser dipped in pink ink, I stamped his pink cheeks.

On the kitty, I used a pink Copic to color in the inside of her ears and her mouth. On both, I covered the noses with Glossy Accents.

The hearts are made using an SU heart punch. The sentiments are heat embossed with white EP.
Here is the inside:

All of the stamps are from various Mama Elephant sets except the one that says "happy heart day." That is Lawn Fawn. The patterned paper is I don't know. I found it loose in my drawer and it was perfect for my card.

Have a great Sunday evening all. Thanks for looking in,
