Thanks a Bundle

I made this card for the Sketch Challenge at SCS today. It uses both Happy Heart Day and the Regal Rose Ribbon included in SU’s Bundle Special. Although this is thought of as a Valentine Set, I intentionally did NOT make thiscard a Valentine — it is a thank you note. I think it is important to point out that this set has a greater longevity than February 14. Only 2 of the stamps in the set refer to Valentine’s Day. I see this set as very usable for children’s cards and thank you cards throughout the year!


Myelephant is paper pieced with Rose Red Prints DP — fun!!! And can you see her toenails and fingernails are painted with aWhite Gel Pen?The other images are colored with a Blender Pen and pad ink. The heart on top of the trunk has Dazzling Diamonds. The green *grass* is Certainly Celery Prints DP with a scallop top I made using the Corner Rounder with the guard removed. The background dotted DP is a sheet from the new Bali Breeze DP pack. The scallop is mounted on a dimensional. The *thank you* was stamped in 2 steps using the Stamp-a-ma-jig. Fun, fun set to play with!!!

  • Stamps: Happy Heart Day
  • Paper: Rose Red, Certainly Celery, Basic Black, Whisper White, Rose Red and Certainly Celery Prints DP, Bali Breeze DP
  • Ink: Black Stazon, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink. Signo White Gel Pen.
  • Accessories: Blender Pen, Ribbon, Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, SAMJ, Crafter’s Tool Kit, Dimensional. Punches: 1 1/4, 1 3/8, Scallop, Corner Rounder.

Thanks much for looking!!! I’ll still be making more samples with this set over the next couple days. I’d like to do a treat bag and some different sized cards as well. My post previous to this was a Boy Valentine with this set.
