This week's Let's Face It Friday challenge at http://peachykeenstampschallenge.blogspot.com/ is to create a project using any of the Peachy Keen Stamps faces. The we must include "XOXO" somewhere on the project. I decided to make my project out of "XOXO."
Using my Gypsy, I made the card base by welding together the shadow image for the XOXO from the Sentimentals cartridge to the base image for the raccoon from the Create-a-Critter cartridge . Then I copied this welded image, flipped it and welded it to the front to make the back of the card so that when it folded it would be a shaped card. I cut the card base using black cardstock from Stampin' Up.
I cut the red layer for the XOXO using Real Red Stampin' Up cardstock, added it to the card base and added the stitch lines. My arthritis is acting up this week, so I had a little trouble with the stitched lines, but they aren't too bad.
I cut all of the layers for the raccoon and adhered them to the base. I stamped the raccoon face using the medium Critter Faces from Peachy Keen Stamps. I love this stamps set so much, I'm going to order the large critter faces. I colored in the eyes with my Gelly Roll pen and pink Copic Marker.
You can't see it very well, but I used my new 40:31 Creations Love stamps to emboss the "Happy Valentine's Day" on the inside of the card. If I'd had white ink, I would have used that instead.
Right now I don't have any other projects ready to post. I'm hoping I will get some of my Valentine's cards started. Last Friday I received my Martha Stewart scoring board and I didn't even take it out of the box. There's a few techniques I want to try using the score board.
I'll try to post at least something tomorrow. Until then...
