Chocolate Flower Squares

 

Hi everyone!  I’m back after a bit of a hiatus from stamping.  My puppy tore her ACL and had to have surgery, so I spent a couple weeks helping her get around during her recovery.  Then I was packing up stuff and I went to a stamping retreat which was a lot of fun.  Here is the aftermath……  LOL

Yes, my studio looks like this right now as I’m typing up this post.  I have a lot of unpacking to do, but I was able to whip up a sweet little chocolate flower card to share with you today.  This card with the chocolate flower squares is a cute little 3×3 notecard, and you can put together a set of these in less than 30 minutes.

I stamped the Peonies Squared from the A281 sheet (Bold Nature Scenes) with some chocolate ink onto some cream colored cardstock.  I trimmed the stamped image out and glued it down onto a chocolate card.

It really helps to have a well-inked inkpad when inking up a solid stamp like this.  If you find that your images are coming out blotchy, try reinking your inkpad first.  You can also make sure you clean your stamp really well – sometimes there is a little residue left on the stamps from the manufacturing process.  Using a stamp positioning tool such as a MISTI is a big help when you need to re-stamp your image.

I’m going to get back to unpacking, so hopefully everything will be put away before my next Art Neko post.  Hee hee hee!  Have a great week!

Love Mailbox Valentine

 

Hi all, it’s Holly posting today.  Valentine’s Day will be here in a couple weeks, so I’m making some cards for my family.   This sweet silhouette features a little girl stuffing her Valentine cards into a mailbox.  Isn’t that cute?  This silhouette stamp is from the A405 Valentine and Love sheet at Art Neko.  You can see the word “love” across the bottom of the mailbox.  I added a glittery red heart sticker to the top of the mailbox for a pop of color.

Did you know that Art Neko carries ribbon in the store?  This beautiful heart ribbon can be found HERE.  I wrapped it around my card and tied it into a pretty bow.  I stamped the sentiment from the A157 Valentines and Love sheet and then cut the words apart so I could fit them directly above the ribbon bow.  Almost all the supplies on this card are from Art Neko, including the cardstock.  I’ve listed all the items below for easier shopping for you.
