Sweet Pig

>> Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Hi Everyone,

This was a card I made as a thank you note, but It could easily be used as a Valentine for someone.  I just love all the different pig stamps here at DRS Designs, and this Leonard the Pig Billboard is a favorite of mine.  With his blank sign, you can fill it in to say just about anything.  

I stamped the background using the Giant Chocolate Chip stamp and created the center strip using the Scroll Tile for a subtle design.

The pig was colored and fussy cut, and attached to a heart embossed oval, which I then matted to create a more finished look.

The One Line So Sweet Greeting was stamped and cut out to fit on the sign.  I considered using my stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp each word separately onto the sign, but this was much easier to do for me, and I finished off the card with a few pink gems.

Here's hoping you day is off to a sweet start!



Love Bug

>> Monday, January 15, 2018

Don't you just love this little love bug image? I sure do! For this Valentine, I started with heavy weight white CS and stamped the greeting with Versafine Black Onyx ink in one corner and the Love bug with Memento black ink in the other corner. The love bug was colored with Copics and I used a red gel pen to color in his nose and the hearts on his antenna. You can't really see it in the photo.

Next I stamped the tiny lady bug from our 4 in 1 Garden Bugs stamp with Versafine Black Onyx ink onto a piece of red CS and die cut the word "love" from the red CS. I then used the same die to cut the work love from the white CS being sure to keep all the little pieces of paper from the insides of the letters. I used TH Matte Medium to glue the word love into place as well as the white parts.

Everything is attached to the black panel and then to the white card base.

Thanks for stopping by today. To see this cute image and more check out our on line store here.



White for Valentines

I am getting some Valentines Cards done before yet another holiday sneaks up on me in plain sight!

Today, I went for super easy CAS.  I stamped the new Valentine Scroll Oval and then die cut the panel.  I used Stickles and glitter to add some gold, and then I affixed it to an embossed panel.  It was super easy.

Many hugz,

If you have a love bug in your life, DRS Designs now has the perfect stamps to make them a Valentine's Day card!

I started my card by stamping the Love Bug on a scrap of card stock.  I colored, trimmed, shaded and layered it on black.  Next I used the Splatter Background on red paper and added 2 embossed strips of black paper for the top and bottom.  I stamped the bottom of a white piece of card stock with our new Love Bug Hug greeting and layered everything on a folded red card.

Thanks for stopping by


Love Bug Hug

 Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! It's not too soon to start thinking about Valentine's Day. Just sayin'...Here's a pretty quick & easy card using some cute new images. I really like the look of colored pencil on kraft so that's what I thought I'd try w/ this chubby little Love Bug  I put the kraft panel into my Misti, then colored him using Prismacolor pencils. After overstamping it to bring the outlines back, I attached a red strip that I had die cut the hearts down the side, then die cut the whole thing w/ a stitched rectangle die. The greeting was stamped on a little strip & I added two black brackets (as in the {hugs} shorthand) & attached some of the cut out hearts.
Here's a look at the inside. A few more hearts were added & I used a leftover strip of the red as a stencil for the pink hearts. 
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Good morning!
How about some Valentines to get you in the mood for some romantic card making?? This first one has lots of bling and who doesn't like that?
I used an embossing folder for the top and added rhinestones to every cross section.  The Valentine Oval was cut out with a decorative Oval from ODBD.
I fussy cut the Filigree Hearts.

This second card I used a sketch from SplitCoastStampers
The rectangle dies are from Tonic Studios.
I used an embossing folder on some Cor'dination paper then sanded.

I love these new Valentine stamps...isn't this ladybug cute?
Thanks for visiting today!!
Have fun stamping!



Snowgirl Fun

>> Wednesday, January 10, 2018

What a cold Winter so far!  It has only snowed once this Winter in Central Alabama, but it feels cold enough to snow again.  I have a little snowperson to show you today.

I started this card out by placing some aqua acrylic paint on aluminum foil.  I squirted some water on it, and then dipped my paper in it a few times.  Once it was almost dry, I sprinkled some gold and white frontage on it and heated it.  I got a great snow swirl effect in a few places.  Next I stamped the new Flakey Friends Winter Greeting and then die cut the snowman using an older Tim Holtz die.  

Super fun and easy card.
