My turn at the tutorial

It seems that some of you enjoyed the video that I found for you to look at. I will try to find more interesting things for you to look at. I don't have a camera, so I cant make a video for you. But I'll look around to find things to share....

I wanted to show you my version on the tutorial. Basically it is the video tutorial and the SCS sketch challenge 212 for the week. Might as well kill two birds......

I used my little cupig from Whipper Snapper again. This is one of two that were together for a SOTM once. I just love them!! They are the ones I grab first when making my Valentines cards.

The base card is Pink Pirouette. I layered the card with Purely Pomegranate and Heidi Grace DP. I used Mel's label templates (Thanks so much Mel!!) for the top note dies. I cut a medium one out of the Pink Pirouette and a large one out of the Heidi Grace DP and added a brad at each side. For the "medallion" I use Pixie Pink and Basic Black.

The 3rd layer is just Pink Pirouette and Purely Pomegranate that I cut an inch wide and made an arrow point to it. I water colored the piggy and I added some stickles around the white because to me it looked a little plain without something. Once that was done I punched a scallop circle out with my Marvy punch, sponged some Pink Passion ink around the circle and layered the medallion on to that. The sketch called for an oval at the bottom so I used my coluzzle to cut out the ovals from white and black paper. I stamped the word "cupig" with Real Red ink and sponged some Pink Passion ink around that layer, I added a scrap of ribbon behind that before adding it to the Basic Black layer. I added two more brads to that and I was complete.

It looks more complicated than what it really was. It really took no time to do this card. Sometimes things look more complicated than what they are. Of course writing it out seems to sound more complicated than it is too. I know what I'm saying but the words don't come out on the keyboard like I want them too!

Another card that I made was with one of my daughters Darcie stamps. Well, she does not use them, so I think of it as conditioning the rubber Ü

This image is from Darcie's. I stamped her and water colored the image. The base card is Real Red. I layered it with Pink Pirouette and some DP from Li'l Davis Designs. I then cut a piece of the Real Red and used Martha Stewarts border punch along the bottom and then layered that on to a piece of Pink Pirouette and added two heart brads to each side. On the image panel I sponged some Real Red ink before layering it on to a piece of Real Red and I was done. Quick and easy!!

Well, I must go now. Betty is coming over for a fun day and she should be here any time!

Have a great day!
