Guest Blogger: Valentine's - Series Part 2






I'm back with my Impress Guest Blogger - Valentine's Day Series!  Today I'm sharing a feminine and masculine card.  Let's get started with the girlie one:


How cute is that Savvy Stamps polar bear with mug?  Mine is a hybrid brown polar version :)  I couldn't resist adding pink cheeks and matching mittens.  She's enjoying a cup of coffee (wink).  I've stamped her with Ranger Archival Black and colored her with Zig Clean Color Markers and a paintbrush.  Do you see the Impress heart border?  I thought I grabbed my Hero Arts white embossing powder but it was the clear.  I like it with the tone on tone look, how about you?





My card was inspired by:



Next up is my masculine card.  If you've been following me for a while, you know that masculine cards continue to be a challenge for me...how do you think I did?


black + gold = WOW

The background is the new Valentine's Day Coloring Book stamp by Impress.  Isn't it beautiful?  I heat embossed it in clear...it adds so much drama to the overall design!

I topped off the card with the Savvy Deer Head die and hello my deer sentiment.
