Happy Valentines & Love

I'm late with these as Valentines has come and gone but so have the cards I just needed to do the post. I was in hospital on Valentines day so the post had to wait and it's taken until tonight for me to finally get myself moving on it. Nothing major just trying to work out why I still have a cough that comes and goes in intensity for the last year and the reflux issues that have come along with it.

Anyway enough of me. 

I finally bought myself this Stamping Bella image. Ohh my I love her ( its me really
except for the wings).  I stamped and cut her out with the Scan 'N' Cut. 

(Let me point out here that because these images stamp up quite fine it is best to stamp them separately from other images that may stamp heavier. I found that if they were on a sheet of cardstock with combined stamps from different companies the machine just could not recognise the lines of the Stamping Bella stamps properly and that would lead to images being cut out incorrectly. To beat this I did a page with only Stamping Bella images stamped and they all cut perfectly).

I coloured with Copics and added lots of Wink of Stella to the wings and frill of the dress and flower in her hair and the bubbles coming out of the drink. The close up shows the sparkle.

The background is Tim Holtz Distress Oxide smooched, dried and smooched again. Die cut 'love' and a few hearts and added the image with dimensional foam.

This card started out very CAS with just the stunning beauty coloured with Copics. I was going to attach to the front of a card and leave CAS with just a Valentine sentiment but it caught crooked and when I pulled it back of course it ended up misshaping the card front and so I had to rescue it.

Sexy young lady, digital image from Kenny Kiernan, Copic coloured
die cut with the Postage Stamp die with silver washi tape on each side to add a bit of glitter.

I have used a white and silver heart pattern paper added to the cardbase. The image layer has fun foam added at the back to give it a lift. I then die cut the XOXO and 'happy valentines day' from silver glitter paper and attached with glue.

The red panel I made like 6 months ago so finally used it and the
 Stamping Bella stamp was purchased some time ago and waiting
to be used and can now be marked off as used.

Aileen these are both beautiful Valentines and I love how different they are from each other. The hot young chic is very sexy and really stands out on the heart background. I like the way the image is on an angle. Thanks so much for sharing at the Watercooler Wednesday "Any Occasion" challenge this week.

Oh Aileen, I love both your cards! How perfectly you've coloured and shaded the images, too! I must say that young and sexy lady card is both elegant and fun. The framing, the glitter paper, and that slight tilt to the piece with the image all combine to create a card that really stands out. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
