Jan. 2010 Angel Art Blog Hop - Valentine's Day Theme

It's time for another Angel Art Blog hop! This month's theme is Valentine creations made using Papers and stamps from The Angel Company. I found these wonderful chocolates in the dollar spot, and thought that they would be great to jazz up and give to my kids teachers or someone else special. I used brown card stock to create the wrap and added a belly band and scalloped circle to the front, using "More Mimi" paper. That cute little bee is from a new level A hostess set called "Swirled Spring Life". The sentiment is from "I Heart You". I made (most) of the flowers using our flower punches from the catalog!

From the scraps laying on my desk I also made this card.

But I have to say this is my favorite project of the three, it's a hanging card keeper! The bottom half is a pocket, all covered with flowers, just waiting for a love note or two. (The dark brown daisy flowers are from other punches that I have in my stash.)

I hope these give you some ideas and inspiration to create some of your own Valentine projects! Don't forget to go see all the other talented gals who are participating in this Blog Hop, for even more inspiration. It would be great if you would leave them a comment and let them know how much you enjoyed their creations!! Have fun, and thanks for stopping by!!

Happy Birthday Ava!

Today is my Niece's birthday. I hope she likes this card I made just for her, all pink and princessy (I don't think that is even a word?) just like her. I used the soon to be released set "Fairytale Fun" from The Angel Company. Thankfully, I have nieces that are still young enough to love princesses, even if my own sweet girl is not! Although she did have me stamp her some of this image so she could color them.... hmmm, maybe the princess thing is not totally over.
I colored her with Copic markers and added the tiny gems to her crown after I cut her out with a nestabiltity oval. What do you think?

I hope that your weekend is wonderful!

Birthday Kitty

Birthday cards are what I seem to need the most, all the time. I think this soon to be released new set from The Angel Company is so very cute, it is called "Cupcake Cuties", and it works perfectly for birthday cards! There are several images in this set that are adorable, I will post more in the next few days... The sentiment is from another TAC set called "Open Presents" I colored this using Copic markers, which I am very excited to say will also be available in the new catalog!!! To keep the kitty white, I just used a light grey marker to add some shadow, then lightly blended it out with the colorless blender pen. It's an easy way to achieve some depth without coloring the whole image. This same technique could be used with colored pencils and OMS. What do you think??

"Fairy Tale Fun"

More Valentine's cards using a soon to be new set from The Angel Company, called "Fairy Tale Fun". Oh my goodness I think this is my favorite one! I just wish that I had it a few years ago before my sweet girl out grew the whole princess thing. It brings back so many sweet memories of when my baby girl lived in dress up clothes and fancy shoes. *sigh* So sweet...

I hope that you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed making them! This set will be available to order Feb. 1st, along with many more wonderful sets in the new Serendipity Catalog!!

"Jeans and Wings"

This is such a fun set of stamps from The Angel Company, "Jeans ans Wings". It is such a great set to color or paper piece.
I am posting these for you Chris S. Sorry it took me so long!! I made these last fall and due to computer problems they never made it to the blog, better now than never I guess!! I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend!!

More Wonder and Joy

Here are a couple more Valentine themed cards I made yesterday with the soon to be available set from The Angel Company, "Wonder and Joy". There is even a little boy in this set!! For these two cards I added brads for my heart accent, one was flocked and the other glittered. Again I used Mia's Cottage paper collection, also from The Angel Company. This little girl is sitting kind of crooked, at the time I thought it was cute, but now I think it's kind of bugging me. All in all, I think I am pretty happy with how these turned out, what do you think?

This is a little sneak peek at a new set that will be available next month in the new Angel Company Serendipity (seasonal catalog), it's called "Wonder and Joy", and it is so very cute!! This image actually has a balloon with a smiley face, but I wanted to add a valentine touch so I added the heart for the balloon.

Stay tuned for more sneak peeks, I am so excited to share some of the new goodies that will be available soon!! Hope you are having a wonderful day!! :)
