RAWR!

Rawr Valentine

This is my husband’s Valentine card. I didn’t know what I wanted to make him so while I was creating cards today I was thinking about it. He just got me some items off my internet wish lists for my birthday so I thought it would be cool to use something he bought me. Well my husband is also good at pushing my creativity and helping me try new things. I have been wanting to do more misting to get better at it and figure it out. So he bought be some ink powder…which I didn’t know existed. So when I was looking through my scraps I saw paper with dinosaurs on it and remembered this saying. I thought it might match the orange powder he got me. So here is my attempt at spritzing. I put some in a bottle with water to make orange but it really didn’t turn out. So then I sprinkled the powder on the paper and spritzed water on it. The other way is to spritz water on paper and sprinkle powder in it. Depending on how much water mixed with the powder seem to decide what color came out…red, orange, yellow. I got the color palette from the dinosaur paper.

I used the sketch from Feb Inspirational Card Challenge – sketch category…finally got it pretty close to the original!

So a lady at work saw the princess birthday card I did and wanted a valentine one for her nieces.

Let’s Hop Along for Inspiration!

14 Comments

Happy December! It’s a brand new month, and what better way to celebrate than with a blog hop?!? This hop is a little different than our usual. This month Deedee’s Digis is proudly sponsoring the quarterly blog hop at the House of Cards challenge blog, where all of their hop creations are centered around this lovely inspiration photo.

HouseofCards

If you participate in their hop, you could win one of several prizes from a variety of sponsors. But we thought, why not make it a true PARTY and offer you a TANDEM HOP?!?

 So here’s how OUR hop works:
  • Based on the same inspiration photo, some of our designers have created projects to inspire you.
  • You have until 11:55 PM Pacific Time this Saturday, December 5, to visit our participating designers’ blogs and leave them some love.
  • At the end of our hop, each participating designer will choose a winner from the comments left on their hop post, and each winner will receive one digi set of their choice from our shop.
  • All winners will be announced on Deedee’s Digis Blog on Monday, December 7th.

Sound like fun? But wait — there’s more!!! When you’ve completed the hop, be sure to stop back on Deedee’s Digis Blog and leave a comment to tell us so. Those who do will be entered to win our grand prize of a $15 gift code to the shop.

Last but not least, no Deedee’s Digis blog hop would be complete without a FREEBIE to kick it off. Our new “Gift of Love” digi set is available to download for FREE in the “Try Before You Buy” area of our shop through December 6.

DAGiftOfLovePROMO

You should have arrived from Helen Nile’s Blog.

I decided to play with the brand new image that you can get FREE until Dec 5th….it is in the Try Before You Buy Section.

Love

This card is almost all SCRAPS!! Trying to use up all the supplies just sitting around collecting dust! The embossed piece was left over from a wedding I did a couple years ago. My new printer is printing darker then what the image appears so that is why I used these colors compared to what you see in the store. I like how it came out!! I used the sketch at Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #246.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Make sure to leave me a comment to be entered into a drawing to win One FREE Digi from Deedee’s Digis. The next blog on the hop is Marji’s Blog.
