Hexagons and Watercolors!

Posted on

On receiving my very first order from the Spring Catty (aka Occasions Catty, lol 🙂 ) this was the very first card I made from all the new goodies!

I don’t know what it was but I was so drawn to the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die – hopefully after Spring Break I’ll have a change to create more – combine this with a sheet from the gorgeous Watercolor Wonder DSP to go underneath the die-cut and you have yourself an instant hit!

And if you’re wondering about the interesting way I’ve aligned my Basic Rhinestone Jewels welllll, being the first time I’d used this die I wasn’t as “careful” as I could have been removing the Island Indigo Cardstock from the die, consequently ripping the entirety in two. Hence the rhinestone placement to cover the rips, lol! 🙂

Oh, and have yourself an... Inkee Fiddling Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

It’s taken me awhile, and I admit in Australia I wasn’t really a big fan given its commercialism hence it was a little hit and miss with me, whereas here in Canada I love how even the children share Valentine’s at school. This is what Miss Ten spent the long week-end making to take in today. How cute are these? The one with the rose is for the teacher!

That Scalloped Tag Topper Punch REALLY made these Valentine’s gifts so VERY quick and easy knowing that all that was need was a two-inch strip at the desired length. Having the hole as such being punched at the same time as the scallop was definitely a bonus with the stamping done prior to wrapping obviously in Raspberry Ripple Classic Ink with a stamp from the Delightful Dozen Stamp Set!

What’s inside each of these little bags you wonder? Well, whilst I was going through Frankfurt duty-free last month, I came across miniature Tic Tacs and immediately thought of Valentine’s Day. Seriously, who doesn’t want minty fresh breath on Valentine’s Day, lol! 🙂 I’ve placed a quarter beside them to give you an idea of just how tiny they are. I think from memory they hold only EIGHT tic tacs – cool huh?!

So, Happy Valentine’s Day to you and hope you have a wonderful time however you choose to celebrate!
