MY PINK STAMPER LIVE DEMO CHALLENGE hosted by CREATIONS WITH CHRISTINA


The My Pink Stamper Live Demo Challenge hosted by Creations With Christina is to use a Christmas image from any Cricut cartridge and use the cut in a non-traditional way. I chose to use the swan from 7 swans a-swimming on page 38 on the Joys of the Season cartridge to make a Valentine's Day Card. I used my Gypsy to weld two swans facing each other. I cut the heart from the Doodletype cart. The card is 6x6 and the dp is from K&Company Seasonal stack. The swans were adhered with Zip Dry Paper Glue to the heart and popped up slightly with Scotch foam tape. I used a MS punch for the lace-like border and ribbon from my stash. I created the flower embellishment that is attached above the heart. (To see directions, pictures and other tips, please go to my article at Custom Crops by clicking here ). The 'water' was colored with Stickles as are the swans beaks. I used a Zig color brush in khaki and a blender pen to add some color to the swans. The blender pen was used with a Shock Pink Copic for the edge of the flower and heart. Dots are added on the heart with an Inkssential opaque white pen. Your kind comments are welcome and very much appreciated.
