What To Make When You Hibernate: All The Tines Blog Hop

Hey Everyone! I’m super excited for today’s blog post because it’s my first as a participant in the What to Make When You Hibernate Blog Hop!

This week’s hop theme is all things Valentine’s Day. So, whether you’re celebrating with a loved one or just yourself, there is something for everyone along this hop! This hop is stacked with so many talented folks, and I am so excited for you to see what we’ve made!

I’m sharing this Valentine’s Day Card that I made with the Love You More set from The Rabbit Hole Designs!

I really love using this stamp set, because there are so many fun images to help build a scene. For this card, I decided to use the image of the girl kissing the boy, along with some hearts.

I started this project how I always do, which is I colored up my images. I’ve got a Color Guide below with the Copic Markers used:

  • Girl
    • Skin: E0000, E00, E04, E11, R20
    • Hair: E42, E43, E44, E47
    • Dress: RV13, RV14, RV17, R35, R37
  • Boy
    • Skin: E0000, E00, E04, E11
    • Hair: E70, E71, E74, E77, E79
    • Shirt: R35, R37, R39
    • Jeans: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
  • Red Hearts
    • R24, R27, R29
  • Pink Hearts
    • RV13, RV14, RV17

I also stamped some of the solid hearts with Catherine Pooler Party Dress and Samba Ink.

For my background, I used the Diamond Flower Stencil from The Rabbit Hole Designs and adhered it with Pixie Spray to an A2 panel of White Cardstock. In a circular motion, I used my Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blending Brushes to blend the follow Distress Oxide Ink Colors from the center out: Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple, Wilted Violet. I then removed my stencil and flicked Fun Stampers Journey Sparkle Silk onto my panel, and set it aside to dry.

Once dry, I took my Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Circles Stackables die, chose the die that fit best on my image, and cut a circle in the raised center of my card in a portrait orientation.

I grabbed a piece of Brutus Monroe Fuschia Glitterstock and cut it to a size that would cover the circle cut out. I flipped my stenciled die cut panel over so it’s backside was facing up, and used Brutus Monroe 1/8″ Foam Tape around the die cut circle. I then adhered my Fuschia Glitterstock. I then adhered more 1/8″ foam tape to the back of the panel and mounted it to an A2 card base.

I prepared a sentiment strip using the “kiss” sentiment, stamped in Red Versa Clair Ink, and then a few solid hearts using the Catherine Pooler Party Dress and Samba Inks. Using my Tape Runner XL, I adhered the sentiment strip to the bottom portion of my card.

Now it was time to adhere my couple and the hearts. I wanted my couple to be in die cut circle section of the card, so the parts of the couple that covered the Glitterstock, I adhered that area with foam tape to keep the couple raised. The part of the couple covering the stenciled panel, I adhered with my Tape Runner XL. I then used my Tape Runner XL to adhere the hearts around the couple.

And that’s my card!
