Happy New Year to you all! I’m starting the new year off with a couple of Valentine’s Day cards for my design team projects for the Not 2 Shabby Shop! I was selected to be on their design team with 14 other fabulous designers. The cards I’m creating were extra fun to put together! I’m using stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn’s latest Valentine’s Day release called, You’re Just My Type & Love Poems. I adore the old-fashioned typewriters and the little mice! They come with a lot of fun sentiments to stamp onto the typewriter paper. Check out my process video and product links below! I also get to share with you a code to receive 10% off your purchase at the Not 2 Shabby Shop: N2S10 Some exclusions apply.
Card #1: Interactive Love Note Card
I stamped out all of the images with my Mini Misti stamp positioner and then colored them with Copic markers. For one of the notes, I only stamped 3 sides of the image so I could elongate the note. I stamped the cute sentiment that says, “Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet and so are you.” On the back of the teal card stock I created a track that holds in the note and allows it to slide up and down from the typewriter smoothly. I put a stopper at the end of the note so it couldn’t be pulled out completely.
I also had fun creating more little notes that the mouse discarded on the floor until he typed out the perfect love note. I curved up the edges of these papers by gently wrapping them around my craft pick.
Below is a list of the Copic markers I used on this card:
Copic Markers: BG11, BG13, BG18, N0, N2, N4, R000, R00, R01, R02, R22
Card #2: Colorful Love Notes Card
I colored in all of my typewriters for this card with cool gray Copic markers with pops of color that match the card stocks behind them. I also used inks that matched my coloring to stamp out the sentiments. I adhered everything down flat to my card base, except the typewriters which I popped up with foam squares. I added a few silver confetti sequins to add some sparkle to the card.
