I'm back and I'm really gonna try hard to keep this thing updated now. Especially since we have a whole new line of awesome products to play with.
First, I will start out with a cute new set called Totally Tess. Tess is a stamper, cardmaker and scrapbooker. Gotta love that. For this card, I made Tess into a Valentine's greeting by using the little heart stamp that comes with it.
The card here is Chocolate Chip and has a layer of Real Red and a layer of the Sending Love specialty designer paper. Both layers have been edged using the new Scallop Edge punch in the Sale-a-bration mini-- free with a $50 purchase.
The focal point here is Tess stamped in Basic Black. I watercolored the top of her and then paper pieced a pair of pants out of the same designer paper as above. It's very easy since her pants are a simple shape. I added the heart stamp in her hand and the Happy Valentine's Day greeting from the A Happy Heart stamp set. Then I layered the focal point on a layer of Real Red and corner rounded two opposite corners.
To add a little texture I added some of the new red satin ribbon (in the Occasions Mini) and a red button from the Playground designer series buttons and one of the adorable little Chocolate Epoxy Brads from the new Occasions Mini.
I love this card. It's very rich in color and fun!
