Here's to Sharon Caudle

Hello AI Fans!
Oh my gosh, I can't believe it's already Valentine's Day! I hope you get your fill of chocolate this weekend!  :)  Today I'm featuring another one of Art Impressions Valentine's Day Stamp Sets called 
Love and Chocolate Set (sku 4367).  She does look like she's having lots of fun, doesn't she!!!

To create the image panel like this, I used Spellbinder Ovals and Spellbinder scalloped ovals, and put the lower left corner of the paper through the opening of the die so it wouldn't cut it. I thought it turned out kind of fun. What do you think? 

Copics used:
E11, E00, E000, R20, E21, E23, E47, E71, E70, C2, C3, C5, Y32, Y35, E33, E35, R81, R83, R85, R22, R24, R27

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit and hope you have some time this weekend to get crafty!

It's A Love Thing!

Hi Ai Fans!
There is something about an elderly couple that still displays their love for each other that just touches my heart! You know that feeling you get when you see two people that are older holding hands still? I hope that is me forever! The Ai "Love Thing" set is no different. This adorable couple just screams we still love each other the same as the day we met!
I chose papers from the Doodlebug "Love Bugs" 6x6 collection that I had from last year's release. I love the bright fun Valentine's colours! I added a few enamel dots and die cut borders to finish off my design. 
Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, R20
Hair: T1, T3, T5
Sweater: R24, R27, R29
Pants & shoes: T3, T4, T5, T7
Dress: R21, R22, R24
Sweater: T0, T1, T3, T5
Bench: E43, E44, E47, Silver Sink of Stella
Box & chocolates: R81, R83, R85/ E08, E18, E31, E97, R29

you're my type! by Diane Zechman

Hello Ai friends and happy Thursday!
Today I am sharing my last valentine card this year!  I used the Show The Love Set (4230) and made a side step card.

I adore this funny gal!  She cracks me up!  I was planning to create a card with some wild and wacky colors to go with her personality but I ended up making a much softer one.  :)  Next time!

Oh, I just love her so much!  I think I need to use her for a non-valentine card too!  ;)
Have a great day and… happy stamping!
