Today is Artistic Outpost’s Day 4 of our sneak peek for the three new releases, and today I’m featuring Cutie Pie, a vintage Valentine’s Day set…and aptly named I might add because the images in this set are so darned cute!
“Stuff” I used:
Stamps: Cutie Pie (Artistic Outpost)
Paper: Core’dinations, Daisy D’s, Whisper White (SU!)
Ink: Palette Hybrid Black Noir, Distress Worn Lipstick
Other “stuff”: white crepe paper, Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol, blending stump, sponge, dotted organdy ribbon (pink and cream), 1/4″ pink gingham ribbon, buttons (all buttons and ribbon from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts), Tiara Glitz Stickles (for the tiara of course!), corner punch (retired SU!) large glue dot, heart shaped Nestibilities (scalloped heart)
The crepe paper ruffle was made by folding a strip of crepe’ paper about a third of the way so that the single strip looks like two ruffles; I ran a strip of adhesive around the perimeter of the scalloped heart and gathered the ruffle as I went around the heart with it, just kind of scrunching it as I went. I used a sponge to tint the edges with Worn Lipstick Distress ink as well as the edge of the patterned Valentine’s paper. Three buttons were layered and tied together with the gingham ribbon and adhered to the card with a large glue dot…a pointer for “threading” buttons together…thread a large needle with the ribbon and sew through the top hole of the button, and then bring the needle back through to the top, trim off excess ribbon, and tie the ends with a square knot…so much easier than trying to stick the ends of the ribbon through by hand.
The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol (mineral spirits) and a blending stump, cut out with a paper snips, and mounted to the front with foam tape. The piece is 6″ x 6″, so it gave me more room to play create.
Thanks for stopping by!
