You Warm my Heart

I have a last minute entry for the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge #26 to include a heart. This has actually been ready for a while but I just could not get it photographed and uploaded. I've had two eye surgeries and have found it difficult to work around the procedures.

I used an older product from a now defunct company, the Neat and Tangled Penguin Treat Holder to put together the penguin. I added the hat, candy cane and coffee cup using dies from the Lawn Fawn Woodland Critter Huggers Winter Add-On die set. The sentiment from the Pinkfresh Studio Sweet Friend Flora was stamped onto a heart shaped die cut using pure poppy ink. I actually used last week's Freshly Made sketch but didn't get it in on time for the challenge. Story of my life these days. I am not super happy how I put the items in the penguin arms but then again I haven't seen any penguins holding cups and candy canes either!

Products: Neat and Tangled die, Pinkfresh Studio sentiment stamp, PTI cs and dp, Lawn Fawn dies, PTI ink

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great rest of the weekend.

Be Comforted

Hello there. I am always in need of sympathy cards and never seem to have something available when I do. I hope to remedy that this year. This particular card is for the the Flower Challenge #88 to add a heart. 

I stamped the images from the Pinkfresh Studio Sweet Friend Floral stamp set onto Copic friendly cardstock, cut out with the matching dies and colored with Copic markers. For the background I created an opening in a linen cardstock panel with a heart shaped die, then backed with patterned paper. The floral pieces were inserted into the heart using a bit of glue and foam dimensionals to attach. The sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words Faith set was stamped direct to paper. 

Products: Pink Fresh Studios stamps, Simon Says Stamp, PTI cs and dp, Altenew ink, Copic Markers
Copics: R00, R02, R05, G40, G43, W00, E81
I hope all is well with you. Have a blessed day.
