Nuts About You by Jil Lebel

Hello Ai fans!

We're less than a month away from Valentine's Day so I made up two more Valentine cards. They're similar, yet different.  I used Nuts About You 4885. This set has the cutest puns as well as the simple sentiment that I used. The images are really fun to color.

I used Copics and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers together to color us my images.  I stamped the images onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Paper with the Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink pad and then colored them with my alcohol markers.

For the first card I fussy cut the image and raised it over the decorative paper layers with foam tape.  The decorative papers I used are from the Lost and Found Heirloom collection by My Minds Eye. 

The second card I die cut the colored image from the My Favorite Things Double Stitched STAX die cuts and foam taped it onto the decorate paper layer. The decorative papers I used are also from the Lost and Found Heirloom collection by My Minds Eye. 

Here is the list of the markers I used
I used Copic markers except where noted
Bird - B00, ( Spectrum Noir AB1, AB3)
Envelope - B00, Blender
Squirrel - E33, YR14, E37, RV10, tummy E31
Mailbox - C1, C3, C5, C7
Post Grey - C1, C3, blender
Heart - RV10, RV13
Nut Base- (Spectrum Noir RB1, RB3)
Nut Lid - E35, E37, E49
Reds - R14, R37, R89

Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Day!

So cute and adorable are these cards. The little creatures are just as anxious as I am to see what is in the mail box. Except for the bills...no way! LOL
