What a great set of colors ColorLab has for this week…just in time for your final Valentine’s Day cards!

These are such classic colors for the season but I went a little non-traditional.  I didn’t use one of my heart images.  Instead, I wanted to play with my new Sweet Summer set.  I just love the flowers and all the little stamps that go with them!  I saw the Friday Mashup Sketch for this week and knew that was just what I needed to get started.

I stamped my little flower and stem in Basic Black using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to perfectly align the stem.  Even though I have the clear mount stamps, the Stamp-a-ma-jig is a great help when you want to stamp something “just so” (it was made for type A people like me!)!  I pulled out the Real Red polka dots from my Play Date DSP (your prints from the Brights Paper Pack would be great here too).  After I did a basic look at the layout, I colored the flower in Real Red and the stem in Crumb Cake using my blender pen.

Hint:  When coloring on Very Vanilla or Whisper White, think like you are placing color with the Blender Pen instead of swirling on the color.  If you want to really blend and mix colors, use Watercolor Paper instead.

The sentiment is from Short & Sweet, one of the best sentiment sets ever!  I tied my bow and wrapped the ribbon around the DSP layer, popped the image up on dimensionals and done with the front.  I didn’t take a picture of it but I used the little butterfly on the inside (colored red also), along with the “happy valentine’s day” sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I’ll be making a few more of these and I think they are perfect for teacher Valentine’s from my boys.

So glad you joined me today!  I look forward to your creations with these colors and don’t forget to take a look at the other Color Chemists’ projects!  See you soon!
