Love Shack

I am so excited to share today’s project with you. I just finished up my latest Tim Holtz Village House – just in time for Valentine’s Day. Introducing the Love Shack, queue the B-52’s! If you are too young for that reference look-up Love Shack by the B-52s, it is a fantastic song.

I used the Tim Holtz Village Dwelling for my base. The house and all of the parts were cut out using heavy white cardstock. The roof, window frames,

and the porch are from the Village Surf Shack  Die and the fence is from the Village Bungalow Die.

Gotta get back to the Love Shack

I started by inking the house with Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and then added the tiny hearts in Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries.

Ready for love?

I created the roof by using my Score-Board and adding the score marks, I was going for a tin roof look. I also used my stylus to add more depth.

Distress Ink, Tim Holtz dies and a handful of stamps

I made my chimney with the shape from the die but cut it down a little. I stenciled the stones on with my pink Distress Inks and then added another heart.

The roses were cut out using my Silhouette Cameo and colored with more Distress Ink and the base is Flower Soft in Raspberry Fizz. I just used my paper glue to add that to my fence line.

View without the base

I used a tiny alphabet from Stampin’ Up to create the sign and added another heart. The only non-pink in the house is windows. I inked small pieces of cardstock with blue cardstock and then glued those in place.The door know is a tiny fastener (aka brad). My last step was to add Stickles to the hearts.

Base with the flowers and no house

The little roses just roll-up and glued in place. I added a little pink ink to the base.

This has totally inspired me to make another house for the next holiday. We’ll see if that happens but there are visions of an Irish Village House floating through my head.

Love Pandas Card

We are creeping up on Valentine’s Day and, in our family, a few Anniversaries! Are you feeling the love yet? We are! Just to prove it, today’s card features the darling pandas from Mama Elephant’s Pandamonium. They are my Love Pandas! This is a very minimalist card, especially for me. These little guys just lend themselves to lots of black and white.

I stamped the pandas on a small piece of white cardstock using Memento in Tuxedo Black. Then I stamped the heart using Festive Berries Distress Ink. I drew the groundline using a fine Sharpie.

So cute – Love Pandas

I used Copic markers to color in the hearts and color around and under our little Love Pandas. Then I added black and white cardstock behind the scene and then adhered that panel to a larger black cardstock panel.

Getting ready for Valentine’s Day

All of that went to a card base. I will admit that I am kind of itching to add some glitter to this but, so far I have been able to restrain myself. I love this set and I feel compelled to create some more cards with it! There will be more love & Valentine’s cards to come out of the studio in the next week.
