SIP Challenge 34 – Love!

Happy Tuesday peeps! We got some more snow here, it actually started snowing early yesterday morning and still hasn’t stopped! Ugh! Enough with the snow already! LOL! I had a nice day yesterday with my friend Sue! We got lots more stuff ready for Etsy and had a nice lunch at the Deli. I came home and had dinner with my Parents and then FaceTimed with Andrea while I made my card for today. Before calling it a night I watched a little TV to have a little wind down. I’ll be back over to Sue’s tomorrow to finish up!

Its time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! This week we have a timely Love theme…

SIP Challenge 34 - Love 800

Just in time for Sunday! My card base today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used a piece of paper from the Recollections Valentine’s Day 6×6 Paper Pad to make my banner. The heart is some Tim Holtz Watercolor Card that I heat embossed my sentiment onto from the Simon Says Stamp Paper Hug Photopolymer Stamp Set with some Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. The heart is then cut out with the Lawn Fawn Fawn Hearts Stackables Lawn Cuts. I used Candied Apple Distress Ink to watercolor the card, making the greeting stand out. A little spritz with my Mini Mister and then some paper towel to pick it up and the heart is finished. I adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. The little gold hearts are cut from Gold Foil Sheet using the Simon Says Stamp Mini Hearts Outline Wafer Dies. I adhered them to the card with 2-Way Glue. I love the watercolored heart and the tiny outline hearts are so neat! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Love Theme Challenge! We hope to see some of your cards in the gallery and for a little extra inspiration check out the rest of the Team’s cards over on the BLOG! Thanks for stopping by today, enjoy your Tuesday! πŸ™‚

  1. Love it! Watercolor is growing on me and this is a great example for a novice! I am not a heartsy girl, but I am getting pretty fond of that heart die. I love the little outlines. So cute!

    1. Thanks Patti! Watercoloring is a lot of fun! I have a particular affection for hearts! LOL! πŸ™‚

  2. Love those mini heart outlines! At first glance I thought they were metal eyelets. You manage to find the greatest dies to work with. I’d love to see how you store them so that you know what you have. I keep a list but still, not seeing is not using. Great job today Justin (as always). Have yourself a Tremendous Tuesday. Love and Hugs! XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Grace! The Mini Hearts are really cool! They came in last month’s Simon Says Stamp Card Kit! I store all of my dies on a piece of card stock with a magnet sheet in a clear pocket! I’m actually lucky in that I can remember what I have for the most part! I hope that you enjoyed your day! Love and hugs to you! XOXO πŸ™‚

  4. Hey Justin,
    How have you been? Been keeping up with your emails. Awesome work, as always. You truly are a BUSY little beaver. Well, the day has come. I am lying in my hospital bed. All finished, with the new total knee replacement. But, oh the pain. Keep me in your prayers. β™₯ Dozing in and out. Love ya! Donna πŸ™‚ Hugs!

    1. Hi Donna!
      I’ve been better! LOL! Glad that you are following along still! I’m happy that you had your surgery and it went well! The recover is the worst part but I’m sure that you will be fine in a few weeks! You are definitely a trooper! You are in my thoughts and I look forward to hearing all about your adventures once you are recovered! Love you! XO πŸ™‚

  5. Justin,
    I meant to do this days ago, if you would please, email me with your friends Etsy shop link. I too have a shop on Etsy and would love to see what she has listed.
    Thanks much, nola
